Cavas was truly fabulous. We were there for 4 days of our honeymoon and loved every minute. The hotel staff were incredibly warm and welcoming, with extra touches that made us feel special on our honeymoon.
The rooms are beautiful, with a private terrace overlooking the vineyards, and snow-capped peaks of the andes in the distance. The roof terrace gave a stunning viewpoint from which to enjoy a glass of malbec while the sunset. We were even served a romantic dinner on our roof, and chose to sleep out under the stars one night.
The hotel has many options for day trips and vineyard tours. We went horse-riding through some local vineyards, followed by a wine tour and lunch - a very relaxing way to spend half a day! We also did a bike tour to vineyards next to the hotel... beware it is rougher going and further than you think, but gives you a great excuse to indulge in a 3 course wine tasting lunch at the end of the trip.
The hotel is about 30 minutes from Mendoza, so we chose to have most of our meals at the hotel (other than on wine tours etc). They recommended a few restaurants in Mendoza, and the one we tried was excellent. The food at the hotel was excellent, and always accompanied by the fabulous wines you would expect. They also have tapas style dishes if you have over-eaten at a tasting lunch, and prefer something lighter for dinner...
There is a lovely spa at the hotel, and we had massage and facials. They were good value, and very high quality.
The only tiny thing we would recommend for improvements would be to heat the plunge pools on the terraces, and the main pool. They were very cold, and even the summer heat didn't tempt us into taking a dip.
A few days at Cavas were enough for us to sample the local area, but as part of a bigger trip in Argentina / South America, this was probably the highlight of our whole trip.
Overall, the service at the hotel really stood out, we were treated so well throughout our stay and nothing was too much effort. A really memorable, unique and fabulous place to go for our honeymoon.
