Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an up-market hotel on a high point with an excellent view over Ushuaia. The accommodation is good, leisure facilities, excellent choice of food and a fast wi-fi. The main problem is the location which is some distance out of the town. A minibus is laid on for the benefit of customers which travels every hour in either direction.

Wonderful view but it is a poorly designed hotel. The spa has a very nice pool overlooking the spectacular view but the sauna is in a cold corridor. You have to book it for a particular time and then emerge feeling cold in the drafty corridor. The massage rooms are on another floor right next to the business dining area so you mix with visitors in your dressing gown. I had a brilliant massage though. The layout of the hotel is confusing - we kept getting the wrong floor for the restaurant. And, it's clear that it has not been designed for anyone wanting to take the stairs - the stairways are difficult to find and on some floors, a total mess when you do find them - see my photo. We wanted to check out at midday rather than 10am and were told it would be an extra $200 to do so - wow. We kept to the normal checkout time. The buffet had lots of things on offer but we found it hard to find things we liked - apart from fruit! And the food waste must have been huge. We didn't see anything that made me think they had thought about their environmental footprint. I think this hotel is all about the great view but doesn't have much else to commend it.

Great hotel. Wonderful location above the city with views of the harbor and mountains. Dining room was excellent. Better than expected. I became ill and asked about an appointment with a doctor. The hotel has a doctor on cal. She arrived to our room, gave a complete exam and provided a prescription for an antibiotic which was easily filled in town. Excellent service

We stayed here as part of a package deal with our Antarctica cruise--it was the assembly point before we departed. The hotel has great views. Insane buffet for breakfast, just so much food! My waitress the first day, Marianna, was fabulous, and I do hope I remembered her name correctly. She gave me a personal maté tasting, and though it is an acquired taste (and I definitely am not interested in acquiring it) I appreciate the experience. And how else would I know that maté is not for me? They also put together a breakfast box when we needed to exit before their normal service hours--we ordered ahead of time, and they were very accommodating. The hotel is a bit out of town, so you need to depend on their hourly shuttle or uber, which is what we opted for most of the time. Very convenient and inexpensive. My one regret is that I did not go in the pool, which I only saw late on our last night. That was a beautiful space. There is a hot tub as well which I did not experience but which seemed very popular. All in all I was very pleased with the accommodations and service.

A lovely hotel perched high above Ushuaia in Terre del Fuego Patagonia Argentina with amazing spectacular view of the Beagle channel and the city. We stayed for two nights in late January in a King room (with a view). The room with its hard-wood floors and comfortable bed felt cozy. The bathroom was equipped with rain showers, tub, toilet and bidet plus double sinks. Water and delicious chocolates were provided each day by the friendly housekeeping staff. We ate several meals in the hotel restaurant including two dinners and two breakfasts (an ample buffet was included in our room rate). The food was good but not quite up to the level of our Buenos Aires hotel. The dining room takes full advantage of the view as well. They run a free shuttle service down (and back) to town on a fixed schedule and the hotel has an indoor pool although we were too busy exploring to find or use it. No AC IN THE ROOM but since 50 is a warm day here all you need to do is pop open one of the small windows (as we did) and it’s plenty cool for sleeping. Room was technologically up to date but all charging ports were on the small counter under the TV-nothing bedside. Also the free WiFi was a bit pokey but that probably has more to do with the location of the town-you are literally at the southern-most city in the America’s and possibly the world here. (Att service around town vacillated between 3G/LTE! Comfortable and cozy.

A luxurious hotel about 20 minutes up a hill from Ushuaia. An attractive hotel on a hilltop. I had a lovely room, beautiful bathroom. Good Wi-Fi. The restaurant food was very good. Breakfast did not open unit 7 am and there was no availability of coffee beforehand and no means to make coffee in the room. The dinner buffet was lovely, great choices. Friendly helpful staff. The swimming pool was nice

Very nice hotel - used by many companies for their cruise trip passengers which can make it rather busy. On the whole the service was good and friendly. Slightly strange experience on arrival - the hotel shuttle bus was parked right in front of the doors so we could not unload our bags - he refused to move 20 feet!! Other than that it was all good. Good food, nice bar area and swimming pool.

This is an excellent property. The staff are friendly and rooms comfortable. The swimming pool/hot tub area is outstanding. There are three hot tubs (one large and two smaller) outside and a large hot tub and pool inside. There are two restaurants, one a little bit less formal than the other. The lobby is huge which is good because this is a hotel heavily used by cruise operators and guests are welcome to hang out while waiting for ship departure. There are a couple of nice trails directly adjacent to the hotel. Only comment I'd have is it would be nice to have coffee and tea in the rooms, just a simple hot pot and instant coffee would have been great. Highly recommended.

This was tranquil stay, with picturesque views of the Beagle Channel, the port of Ushuaia. I stayed here for 2 nights and it was amazing I would love to experience this resort again. It’s great for couples , it’s is worth being a trip on it’s own. I stayed here as part of an Antarctic expedition!
