Great views. This hotel is quite big but is warm and friendly. Rooms are fine but we were at the back so no view. Views great from restaurant though. We thought the breakfast good and dinner good value. Main complaint would be that the rooms get too warm and sheets aren't cotton. Also for the excursions you are the first...

My wife, uncle and I went to dinner here to check out the hotel while eating. The hotel is beautiful and so is the restaurant. The view from the restaurant is by far the best thing about it. At first they told us no tables available but then we pointed out the nine empty tables so they sat us down....

The hotel is located up on a hill between El Calafate and the airport. It's quite isolated & it snowed a lot while we were there, so it was quite a picture postcard setting.

The hotel is located on the outskirts of El Calafate on a hill overlooking the town and the lake. But it is not close to anything. As the hotel is quite large I gather it is popular with tour groups. The hotel has a complimentary bus shuttle that takes you the +3km into the town centre which runs there &...

This hotel is not inexpensive and yes, it has a fantastic view, but let this not blind you to how poorly it is run. The staff, universally under 30, seem to think it acceptable to be both curt in their dealings with you as well as tawdry in their attempts to be helpful. Woe betide you if you try to...
