Food was hit and miss, some delicious, some inedible. Staff mostly very kind with a few exceptions. Rooms are small. Front desk staff is nice but lazy. Staff tries too hard to get you to take their tours and don't seem to understand the concept of wanting to take it easy and take in the location. The spa is wonderful and the location is beyond compare. I can't imagine a prettier place.

We have travelled extensively and Explora Patagonia is one of the best experiences in the world. This was our second visit and we stayed for 8 days both times. That says it all and we loved every minute. We only repeated a couple of hikes and that was out of choice as we wanted to see the Grey Glacier again and also feast once more at the BBQ at the Quincho.
We agree with all the superlatives of the recent reviews; it is a luxury base to explore the Patagonian wilderness in style.

The Explora Patagonia is an experience not just a hotel.

Wow, what a place. A stunning experience in every way. The hotel is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. We had a stunning room with a breathtaking view of both the massive mountains, the glacial lake and the water fall, which we enjoy from one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The rooms are lovely, warm and cosy. The bathrooms are fitted with jacuzzi style baths, which is perfect after a long day's hiking or horse riding.

The food at the restaurant was excellent. All meals and drinks are included in your package. Considering the remote location of the hotel, the quality and preparation of the food was amazing. New menus are drawn up everyday and each dish comes with a wine recommendation. The portion sizes are perfect to enjoy 3 delicious well balanced healthy course. The personal attention to details was very welcoming which certainly made us feel at home.

Part of your all inclusive Explora package are all your daily excursions which are arrange/booked the night before with you personal guide. These excursions range from hiking to glaciers, mountains, wildlife walks, horse riding and many more, all tailor made to your personal interest and fitness levels. All excurions are very interesting and well lead by a knowledgeable guides.

The highlight for us was a BBQ, on our last day, at one of the many gaucho (Chilean cowboy) stations just outside the Torres del Plaine national park. A real Chilean feast of spit roasted lamb, Empanadas, Pisco sours and much more followed by a horse ride lead by the main tough gaucho himself.

The explora is a great place to meet wonderful like minded people from all corners of the world, brought together by the fantastic experiences the Explora has to offer.

The hotel has their own transfer vehicles that collected us from Punta Arenas, which is the closest airport. The drive is 4 hours or almost 300km to the Torres del Plaine National Park. Although my wife did not enjoy the drive, especially after a long flight from Santiago, I found the drive fasinating through the rugged countryside, with breathtaking views around every corner.

The Explora is a great hotel concept, very well managed, in an awesome location to create a fantastic all round experience.

Torres del Paine is definitly worth to go at least once.
Explora is the only way to enjoy it.

Im not a hiker o nature entusiast and i thought already the 4 day package was too much for me, instead i really wish i would have stayd 8 days

I just spent a few days at Explora Patagonia and is really a unique place, a magical landscape with an excellence service. The hotel takes care of all details necessary to have all the comforts in a place so far. I must emphasize the friendliness and hospitability of the people working there, always willing to help solve any problems that arise. Best of all is the variety of hiking and horseback riding excursions offered, which are made with the best guides ever!
During the last days I was there the terrible earthquake occurred in Chile, however, as this country is so long and extensive we didnt perceive anything and airports are operating normally and therefore no problem to reach this paradis
