We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We didn't have a lake view room but still could see part of the lake from our room. This place has a cabin feel with modern touches. The rooms were spacious, well decorated. Nice bathroom and amenities. Only complaint is that the cleaning products they use are so strong! They have a nice aroma (not like a cleaning product), very floral, but it's a strong smell. Our heater was broken the first night and we were very hot (couldn't turn it down), but it was fixed. There are nice lounge chairs outside with good views. The breakfast was wonderful, cakes, breads, eggs, crepes, fruits, mimosas etc. They offer a free shuttle to town from 8pm-midnight. This is very convenient for going to dinner. All the restaurants know La Cantera, so when you're done with your meal, you just ask them to give the hotel a call and they'll send the shuttle for you. I'd highly recommend the 3 course dinner at the hotel. The chef was wonderful and we had one of our best meals in our 2 wk trip there. I'm vegetarian and had eaten a lot of very bland, boring pasta dishes in Argentina. i asked the chef if she could try to make it spicy and boy did he! In addition to the 3 courses (all excellent), he gave us a welcome cocktail (gin and tonic), small bites (bread with dips), and a delicious sorbet to cleanse the palette at the end. Overall an excellent meal! And for 120 pesos, it was a good price for how much food we had. We also bought the packed lunched from the hotel for our Big Ice excursion. We each got a meal, but you should probably share one meal among 2 people b/c the portions are generous (2 sandwiches, 2 drinks,etc). Overall a great hotel and experience.
