El Pangue Lodge
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We stayed two nights in this lodge. The accommodation was delightful. Lovely big split level room with views to the lake. The food however was disappointing, bland and expensive for what you got. We also asked if we could take our own wine into dinner and when we came to pay for our stay they charged what we thought was extremely high corkage.

Room Tip: All the cabins have good views. I believe there are self catering units as well if you prefer to do...

Inbetween Puyuhuapi and La Junta we stayed in El Pangue in a cabin near Risopatron Lake in a beautiful setting. It was quite far from the town Puyuhuapi which we passed through on our way to the lodge so we decided to use our extra day here as a day off. We did not regret this decision although it meant we could not visit Ventisquero Colgante in the Queulat national park which was about 70 kilometers away on the worst part of the Carretera Austral. It is a good place to relax en walk two trails which start from the hotel. Our cabin had a nice bay window with a lot of windows so we could enjoy the view. In the cabin was everything we could possibly need, including internet, and the restaurant had good meals for acceptable prices. Staff spoke English well. Payments can be made by creditcard.

Room Tip: In our opinion, take a cabin instead of a hotelroom. Gives more space and feels like a cottage in th...

We stayed only one night and that is too short for such a nice place where you can relax, walk on the 'sendero' starting in the park (for 3 hours), kayak, and fish. When arriving we went for a swim in the heated pool, very relaxing, we switched with the hot water tub. The water of the tub was too hot. The piscine and the hot tub are heate with wood. 'Staff was very helpfull. The dinner at the restaurant was very good and also the breakfeast. The cabana was superb. No intermediate reservation company pushed the price up.

We arrived early evening for a one night stopover pre-season, after 70k of roadworks on the Carretera Austral. So neither we nor El Pangue were at our best. The cabin was superb; very comfortable and with great views. The staff in general were friendly. But the evening meal was a disappointing selection of food from the freezer, some of which was barely thawed. Breakfast was fine. I guess we were a bit jaded and a bit unlucky.

We spend two nights in a nice hut in the hotel parc area with big pangue plants near the lake. The restaurant offered a good dinner in the evening. The staff was very helpful.

I had the best meal of our 5 weeks in Chile here -- if there are enough guests who want the BBQ then you're in luck. Do firmly commit -- another couple who said they might show up didn't, but a BBQ was prepared for them anyhow because they'd be mad if they showed up and there wasn't enough food. Which was great for me - I got to gorge myself on the best ribs I've ever had in my life... Also, my glasses broke, and it seemed that just about everyone on the staff came up with clever ideas to fix them, and the thread plus masking tape remedy lasted until I got home 4 weeks later and had them properly repaired. The staff there were wonderful (like the rest of the people you'll meet in Chile).
