“Relaxing getaway amongst the olive trees”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

Gorgeous place. We stayed in the top room with aircon and it was fabulous -- very luxurious, spacious, big spa (though sadly the shower head was broken and it made for a rather awful shower). Great fresh breakfast with lots of tasty pastries.

Great value place, it's quite incredible the service and standards of rooms (beautifully cleaned every day) and grounds for the price.

I'd highly recommend staying in Chacras de Coria rather than inner city Mendoza, it was such a relaxing green spot to stay and close to all the wineries. Great pool too.

Jose was quite helpful though his restaurant recommendations weren't always great and we sometime were confused about what he had or hadn't booked for us (nearly all the wineries need a booking and one that he said he'd booked for us said they had no booking when we arrived. Luckily it was a quiet day and we could have a tour). Regardless, highly recommended.

Room Tip: The top room was substantially bigger than those by the pool and the aircon was perfect when tempera...

Simply loved our time at Posada Olivar.

We are on Honeymoon visiting lots of different parts of Argentina, and out of all the accomodation we had, this was by far the best!

Jose was brilliant, he did everything he could for us to help make our stay feel extremely relaxed. Everything from the freshly prepared breakfast to the beautful swimming pool made us feel well looked after.

We were fortunate enough to meet with Jose´s family, all of whom were extremely kind and eager to share their time and wine with us.

We can strongly recommend Posada Olivar for anyone who wishes to visit this special part of Argentina.

THe best hotel to stay in Mendoza, if you are looking for a peacefull, beautiful place full of hospitality, charm and green.
Olive trees, big swimming pool, fantastic host Jose (speaks English), who is always ready to help you with advices about the bodegas and all other activities. Big room with huge beds!
Birds in the garden, candles in the evening. Gourmet restourants next door and best bodegas around.

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: There is a suite upstairs for honeymooners

Posada Olivar was an amazing place to stay for our weekend in Mendoza. We were 6 adults. We did the bike wine tour one day and rafting the next day. Breakfast every morning was really nice with fresh squeezed orange juice, the staff and Jose were wonderful! Chacras as a city as much more charm than Mendoza - Pulmary was a great place for lunch and Clos was great for dinner. We enjoyed sitting by the pool during the day and drinking wine on the terrace at night. I will definitely stay again if and when I get back to Mendoza!! Thanks Jose!!

What a lovely stay we had at Posada Olivar. We are a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) and we were given two spacious, clean and pleasant adjoining rooms on the ground floor of a charming guest house. There was a covered terrace off the master bedroom, and a beautiful pool which would be great in the summertime. The bathroom was also well-appointed, and there is a kitchen in the guesthouse which guests can use. Breakfast was delicious: fresh croissants, cheese, ham, jams and juice. Best of all was the service - Jose was so helpful to us from the moment we arrived, calling restaurants, bike rental shops, and other activities, and even going with us to pick up our rental bikes in his truck. The best part was the peace and quiet - the Posada is set on a large piece of land, with olive trees everywhere, surrounded by a wall that keeps out the noise of the town. The town of Chacras was also very nice, walking distance to a small plaza and several good restaurants and wineries. A great place stay if you don't want to stay in the noisy bustle of Mendoza. And excellent value as well. A big thank you to the Posada Olivar!

Room Tip: We had an adjoining suite on the ground floor with a terrace out to the pool. Great for families!

What a wonderful time we had! Jose Luis is a great host, providing such restful and comfortable environment.. He greeted us warmly, showed us around, and then invited us to a barbeque our first night there. It was a great evening, with delicious food, wonderful wines, and warm and lively conversation.
We also enjoyed the town of Chacras de Coria. It is close to many of the best wineries, and provides a quiet alternative to Mendoza, yet with wonderful restaurants and shops.
All in all, a perfect place to stay while enjoy ing the greater Mendoza area.

I read some rave reviews of this place which caused to change my earlier reservation and thus cut our accomodation costs in half! We had reasonably high hopes when we arrived with our rental car but were really blown away! This is such a gem it can hardly be put into simple words! The absolutely beautiful house where the guest rooms are located lies in a huge garden, just beside the owners house. We were greeted by Jose upon arrival (after an early morning flight) and shown to our rooms. Big rooms, beautifully furnished and in perfect condition. Then just open the doors out to the big veranda, sit under the roof in very comfortable chairs and look out into the garden with the fairly big swimming-pool, sip a glass of chilled white wine and just enjoy life! We felt transported into another world! We spent three nights here with one day of wine tasting - got help to book some nice wineries - and one fantastic day driving up into the Andes. Truly amazing scenery!
Whenever we came back to Posada Olivar it felt like we were back home again!
I could easily see us returning to Argentina all the way from Sweden and spend more than a week here - just to relax and enjoy the life.
If you are going to Mendoza, especially if you have a rental car, you can not get any better than this! Especially if you consider the price! Two huge and very nice rooms, fantastic veranda, big pool, very nice and friendly service etc. There is no way you will find better value anywhere!

Room Tip: Ground floor to get direct acces to the veranda!
