My wife and I stayed here for a couple nights on our honeymoon. We absolutely loved it. Came from BA and the busyness of the city and really loved taking a step back and relaxing. The setting of this place is unreal. Mountains all around and vineyards surround the resort where the rooms are. Rooms open onto a large veranda and each has a couple chairs overlooking the vineyards. Also a very nice pool out back, and was warm enough while we there in September to lay out by and enjoy some wine, although the water was freezing.
We choose this hotel in part because of the reviews about the restaurant and we were really impressed. The food was sophisticated. Not a huge menu but a lot of different options, much more of a range than just traditional Argentine food (had a black linguine with shrimp, for example) and that was a nice plus.
Really friendly staff at the Front Desk who set us up with an awesome private wine tasting in english at Carnivae, and after that had a private lunch at the winery's vineyards. The wine of this winery was terrific. That experience and the meal to follow was overall one of the best parts of our 2 week honeymoon.
The room itself was simple but spacious and overall at a resort like this (1 or 2 km outside Cafayate) I think you're best served by either relaxing in the outdoor common spaces of the resort overlooking some gorgeous natural scenery or scheduling some great wine tasting in the region, and having your room be where you nap and sleep in, rather than where you spend your vacation. This resort was perfect for that.
We really weren't sure if we going to go to Cafayate and were really, really glad we did. Cute little town and this is a great resort to be based at for exploring the region.
