EOLO - Patagonia's Spirit - Relais & Chateaux
Ranked #2 of 70 Hotels in El Calafate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Eolo is an absolutely unique place. It's in the middle of nowhere with amazing views from my room, the lounges and the restaurant, basically from every room I've seen in the hotel. The food was great. I think the hotel was fully booked during our stay but it still felt quiet and spacious, we had the small lounge to ourselves most evenings when we went there for a coffee after dinner. So relaxing and special!

In the middle of the pampas is there the Eolo Lodge with its friendly staff, large rooms a good restaurant. It is great to be there and see outside the birds and hare. To see the environment you have to rent a car but you also can bike, walk and horse riding at this place. The rooms are good with a great bed and a shower into the bath. The dinner and breakfast area has also a great view, we don't like the music in the morning. But they will change it, André Rieu?? The lunch for the day trip was amazing and the best in Argentina. There are a lot of rooms to sit, read or listen to the music. Internet is free at a computer in the hallway. Swimming pool is not that large and we find it a little bit cold.

Room Tip: suite 9, some noise in the evening from ?? but we sleep very well

EOLO was probably one of the best hotel stays we've ever had. All the food- from the amazing lunches they packed for our day trips, to the impeccable dinners- was memorable. The staff is amazing and attentive to our every need. The property is stunning- the views, the lounges, and the gorgeous and spacious rooms. EOLO is the best reason to stay in El Calafate, really not to be missed.

intimate, with only 17 rooms, EOLO felt like a warm extended family home. the staff even remembers your name!

the common spaces and lounges were very inviting and lovely. with telescopes, coffeetable books, board games, and reading material on all things Patagonia.

the only drawback was that my visit coincided with the unseasonally hot summer. and i was upgraded to the superior room in a corner, which somehow, was much warmer than the standard room, with only one side of the wall (with the window) exposed to the elements. as most (or all) hotels in Patagonia had no air-conditioning, my room felt like a sauna well until the sun had set, and only managed to fall asleep at 1am. only had a small fan to cool the room, which was of no help at all.

the room was extremely comfortable, and inviting, and the big windows beckons one to the wild expanse of space outside... the bathroom large and airy, although the only window next to the bath/shower seemed to attract an army of aphid-like insects, definitely not for the squeamish. spoiled by the l'occitane bath amenities.

dinner was exceptional. had the chance to try out the famous Patagonian lamb, and a dessert made with the Calafate berries... similar to blueberries, except more tart in taste. breakfast items cooked to order however, was rather disappointing, and was served poached eggs on toast.

EOLO is a gorgeous slice of luxury in a barren landscape, with very personal and intimate service.

EOLO was a wonderful place to stay! Although not centrally located, the activities and amenities that it offered were great. We went horseback riding one day down to the lake which was lovely and very serene. The food at the restaurant was great, and the service was impeccable. The heated indoor pool was small but pretty with pictures of glaciers on the walls and a large sauna. One of the best hotels in Argentina by far.

Five couples from NY spent two weeks at 4 stops in Argentina. This one was the most spectacular. Patagonia is quite breathtaking. We hiked glaciers, rode 4X4s, ate great food, partied in the bar. The hotel sits majestically in the steppe, with 360 degree views. Sunrise, sunset, all spectacular. One night we had no dinner choices, just cordero a la cruz (lamb asado) which was fabulous. The secret weapon is Carolina, the restaurant manager who is tireless and seems to be working 24/7 with a great staff.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the house. Either face the Andes or Lago Argentina.

Beautiful hotel but I had $200 stolen from a locked safe. As soon as I noticed the missing money, I notified the hotel staff. The manager defended his employees honesty without investigating the situation. Instead, he told me that I must've been mistaken or misplaced my money. This was impossible since I counted my money in the morning before I left for an all day trip which was away from the hotel. Hotel staff fully informed of all guests whereabouts during the day since most trips to this area in Patagonia are spent away from the hotel for an entire day.
