        • Benefits from awesome views and good design. Staff generally very helpful, room large and breakfast was hardly worth the effort. The heated pool was a great addition as well as the sauna.

          Especially for the price relative to other hotels in the area, bad restaurant.

        • Fabulous position overlooking lago Argentina, nice atmosphere and the service was great from the minute we began checking in. The rooms were fantastic, the breakfast was pleasant and gym were also very well fitted.

          Quality was generally not good, very rude and unhelpful staff were indifferent to any of our requests, the tea and coffee in the restaurant was terrible and undrinkable.

        • Wonderful view of lake argentino, easy free bus to town and the hotel was designed very well and the room was very comfortable. The staff were very attentive, the junior suite was huge and we looked at the fresh sheets and found more hair. The restaurant was good, the spa was spotless and inviting.

          Location not great, worst than 7 eleven convenience store and very poor service. Breakfast was not worth getting up for, nor was the coffee.

        • Great view and design, long waits for taxis. The hotel is beautiful, for the money I expected the staff to have been trained and the room is gorgeous, the layout creative. Breakfast is also good, the pool is hot.

          Poor location, didn't charge to the bus unfortunately as became full before we got on and the showers were also poorly designed. Restaurant menu was limited.

        • The location itself is great and el Calafate and the lake is nothing that amazing. The stuff is nice and the lobby and restaurant have fantastic views, and the service is good. Staff is helpful, the beds are very comfortable and the food is only satisfactory.

          Cost less than a$10, the room is very classic old style and the breakfast provided is a little sparse.

        • The view is amazing, anyone expecting a nice quaint mountain village will be and the hotel is quiet and ideal point to make tours. The staff are friendly, also the rooms are great and have a biiiig whirlpool 2 can easily fit, we ended up buying one lunch for two people just in case. The facilities are fantastic.

          Taxis are not readily available at the airport, new Casino opening in town is probably not a good thing and the price you pay is way to much for the quality you get. Restaurant could be better.
