Paso de los Patos
Ranked #1 of 5 Barreal B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 April 2012

I am German and as such always ready to find a hair in every soup. The short story: here I did not find any.
The equivalent to an american "great" would be a german "nice", but here even I must say "great".

Claudia, Aurelio and their partners have created a place in - excuse me - the middle of nowhere. We stumbled upon it looking for a place to stay for the night. The ambience is one of rural simplicity mixed with a bit of country club elegance, decorative elements mixed into the furniture reflect traditional lifestyle, huge leather sofas and big fireplaces look inviting, each detail is carefully chosen, the view out over the terrace straight into the Andes is magnificent.

We were disappointed to hear that the place was completely booked for the next two months - fortunately Aurelio agreed to give us a new Clay-Cabaña that was just about ready to be opened.

We had an excellent Asado-Diner, even the napkins smelt fantastic, the local wine Aurelio recommended to accompany the meat was excellent and his attention to our table was very good as well.

Later we slept in total silence - you could barely hear a little creek nearby, which added to the sound atmosphere of the place.
Breakfast was complete and well prepared. If you order "yoghurt", you get a delicacy made of yoghurt, honey, brown sugar and glazed walnut. Claudia throws in some sweet pastry that she makes herself, we even had ham and cheese (indispensable for Germans to be happy in the morning).

Before we left, Aurelio announced our visit to friends of his, who run a bodega nearby (which was also an excellent experience) and gave us tips for the rest of our journey. Altogether we felt, we had been received like personal friends. What more can you ask for.

What a surprise - we found this place just "by accident" and it's far the best option in the whole area. Barreal is not really on everyones schedule, but thanks to this hotel it is definitly worth the detour, if you are one your way south to Mendoza (... via Uspallata, recommendable road).

This small boutique style hotel has just 8 rooms, all well equipped with great views to the Andes. Nice bathrooms with sep. shower and bathtub, a/c, a small private patio with deckchairs, ....

A great plus is the owner family - unique hospitality, love for details, delicious food (breakfast and dinner!!). The wonderful garden and the well decorated main building, the patio and the terrace offer a very relaxing atmosphere. This place is so quiet, a retrat for your soul!

Also, there is a new pool with nice views, plenty of sun loungers, etc.
Massages are available on request.
If you like, activity programms will be organised (like horseback riding to the Andes, ...).

All in all this hotel gives you the feeling, that you are invited in a friends home. Thanks Alejandro and his family. I hope to retur asap.
