“Beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We had a lovely stay at this hotel for two nights, starting our backroads trip and ending our trip. The rooms are very comfortable, the service was great and the food was very good. It was a short stay but very enjoyable. I highly recommend the dining right off the guest registration area. We had a delicious meal there, hake fish, butternut squash soup and vegetable roll. Service was perfect.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms preferable in the shade.

Arriving at Los Sauces after nearly 24 hours of travel was a very welcome relief. We were taken through the beautifully landscaped property to our well appointed rooms which were situated opposite the Club house.
We enjoyed our stay in the lovely hotel, well situated within a short walk of the town of El Calafate. It would have been nice to have some tea/coffee making facilities in our room or at least a small communal area in the building where our rooms were situated where you could make a cup of tea or coffee.
Breakfast was very good with a nice range of fresh juices, fruit, cereals and hot and cold breakfast options.Packed lunches were adaquete but nothing special, we packed our own lunches for the second days trip which was a better option.
All the staff were very pleasant, and English was at least understood if not always spoken. I would certainly recommend this hotel in El Calafate as a good base for visiting the area and seeing the Perito Merino glacier.

Stayed here after three nights in El Chalten as a treat to ourselves after all that hiking. Our room was wonderful and both restaurants are excellent. Our meals here were by far the best in Argentina. Perfect location as it is only a 10 minute walk from the bus station and only a 5 minutes to the main street.

It's the best hotel in El Calafate, the rooms are superbly decorated and the natural beauty of this place is mindblowing. Sandpipers, ducks and other birds are always strolling in the gardens. The cottages are spread over vast expanses of gardens. The view of the hills is amazing from this place and its a 5 minute walk to the central street of El Calafate. A great place to stay!

My husband and I stayed here for two of our nine nights in Argentina (we also visited Bariloche and BA). This was our least favorite hotel of the trip and we left El Calafate really regretting our stay at Los Sauces. There were some positive points, but in the end we just felt like we paid way too much. The positives: service in the club house (one of the two restaurants) was excellent, I liked my massage in the spa, the grounds were well maintained, walking distance to downtown. What we didn't like: our room and the other areas of the building reeked of perfume and when we asked to move, we were told the other rooms would likely be the same. The place was deserted, the beds, linens and decor were fine, but not five star, and the front desk seemed generally indifferent, certainly not invested in our experience. It all added up to an impersonal, mediocre and very overpriced experience. Two things we highly recommend in El Calafate are the "Big Ice" tour of Perito Moreno and Patagonia lamb (we had ours at Casimoro Bigua).

One of the best options in Calafate. It has an excellent location as it combines the best of two worlds. The tranquility in the middle of nowhere, but in fact this hotel is very close to the town center (only 3 blocks). You can walk there.
The rooms are spacious and are in different houses, each with a particular style. Breakfast is served at the Club House, where you can also dine or lunch. (but prices are too high)
The SPA is nice, but could improve the quality of the place.
The staff is very helpful and golf carts available for shipment to any part of the property.

Room Tip: Nothing better to get a day of trekking on the glacier and take the swimming pool. And if you stay s...

Los Sauces is three blocks from the main street of El Calafate. The service at the resort is very good and the breakfast buffet is abundant. Our room was spacious. The rooms are grouped in buildings of ten units each with a lovely common gathering area in each. The one downside was that the spa pool didn't open until 2 p.m.

Room Tip: We were in building #5 which was close to the "grill" and breakfast room.
