I am sorry to report that the El Portal de las Vinas was a poor choice for us when staying in Cafayate. We left after one night because it just wasn't comfortable. The room was very shabby and felt like it needed alot of work to be satisfactory. The woman who oversaw the place was very nice, respectful, but couldn't speak a word of English. I know that shouldn't be a requirement, but it did make it difficult to get anything done. I don't often give reviews of this nature, but the truth sometimes hurts. If you are on a budget you may want to stay here, but it wasn't a good experience for the two of us.
