“a perfect taste of Argentinian country life”
Reviewed May 11, 2011

The first time we went here was in April, when we booked for one night. We loved it so much, that we came back here in may, with a friend that was visiting us from Holland. We couldn't let her leave the country without having seen this.
And the second time was even better! We had the lovely rooms with an extra room for our twin girls, so we could all sleep peacefully. There was a polo tournament going on, so we could enjoy watching a match as well.
The place is really relaxed, no pressure whatsoever, and you can really get a feel of the country side, with the quiet nights as a bonus.

Puesto Viejo Polo Club and Resort was recommended by English friends living in Buenos Aires. A group of seven of us, all living in the city, went out to Puesto Viejo for an estancia-style visit. The cost was roughly 100 USD per person per night, staying in double rooms. If you are interested in a country visit but not in love with the meat-heavy, super-touristy feel of some estancias, then Puesto Viejo will be a welcome treat.

Almost every member of the staff speaks English. The place is a full polo club, with beautiful facilities for the horses and a couple of polo pitches. However, we had nothing to do with polo and instead had the weekend getaway. While there was no asado and the food was not of the same caliber that you would expect at an estancia, the bedrooms and the grounds more than compensated for the lack of drinks and meat.

The rooms are beautiful. They are decorated in a sort of country chic style. In the evening, the housekeeper got a fire roaring for us, and we spent the rainy evening playing board games in the lovely main house. Lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and breakfast were all included. Also, four people in our party went horseback riding and they enjoyed themselves. We took a dog to the resort and he was well looked after.

Had it been warmer, we could have used the infinity pool that overlooks the polo field. Also, bikes are on hand for a ride around the property and surrounding area, and a nice quiet frontage road follows the busy highway, so getting out on a bike is safe.

As Puesto Viejo is relatively newly opened as a resort, there are a few little kinks to work out. For example, the showerhead in the bathroom I used fell on me during the shower and the water pressure was very weak. Also, the food is good (pasta--sorrentinos--for lunch and some pretty chewy vacio--flank steak--for dinner, followed by bread and bananas for breakfast) but not great.

However, these little details were easy to overlook, considering the place is clean, beautifully renovated, and the grounds are gorgeous. There are day beds scattered throughout the property and we definitely hope to return.

Canuelas is past Ezeiza airport outside of Buenos Aires. A remise from Belgrano, a northern suburb of BA, cost around 350 pesos (roughly 90 USD), so it is not so cheap. However, you can also take a Lobos Bus, which runs from Capital Federal to Canuelas, and then take a taxi from there. Puesto Viejo can more or less set this up for you.

The staff at Puesto Viejo is great--they were extremely helpful both by email and over the phone. I would highly recommend going there either for a couple of days in the country (estancia style) or as part of one of their more expensive polo packages.

Thank you so much for your feedback. It was great to have you all to stay and our dogs loved having a new friend to play with! Sorry to hear about the issues with the shower, we can assure you this is not the norm. We are so pleased you enjoyed your day riding and cycling and glad the games kept you entertained on the rainy evening! We hope to welcome you back again soon.
