“beautiful location but lack of maintenance”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

La posada del dinosaurio has an excelent location on the banks of the enormous lake, but sadly the posada lacks maintenance, the room was nice. The food in the restaurant was o.k., but the wine was very expensive.

The village itself seems to have been forgotten by the rest of the world. A tiny, cute and peaceful town by an astonishing man-made lake, Villa El Chocon hasn't much to offer.
However, La Posada del Dinosaurio, with perhaps the best views on the lake from under a roof, runs on the premises once dwelled by the engineers and contractors who built the Ramos Mejía dam, and the lake itself.
The place knew better times, but anyway, it still keeps a special magic. Time seems to have stopped here.
We were given a comfortable room with a spectacular view of the lake from bed. On a full moon night, it was a gift to our eyes.
Common areas are very cozy, although we had to wait for heating to raise temp in our room, because we were the only passengers at that time, and so the inn was almost inactive. That was an advantage too, we had the whole place for us.
We we served a typical Patagonian dinner, with a great Schroeder Saurus Malbec wine, and we had it with only the light of a couple of candles, while watching the moon shining on the lake.
People were very corteous, and for sure if travelling near again, is the place to stop at.
If you go, don't miss the nearby dinos museum.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms for a good view on the lake.
