This was our first and by far the nicest, newest looking and most modern refugio we stayed in.
Rooms were bright and airy and slept up to 6 people in bunks.
Showers were powerful and hot and the bathrooms were reasonably clean.
The reception staff and kitchen staff especially were very friendly and happy. Food was great and the best we experienced at refugios in the park.
We stayed two nights and had a big piece of roast pork with rice and a cream sauce on night and then chicken with rice and a sauce the second night. The soup and desserts were also good. Breakfast was nicely cooked and the sandwiches for lunch were the best of all the refugios.
This was also the busiest refugio we visited so there was a good atmosphere. Would recommend.
