Reviewed 23 January 2014

There is not much to do in Puerto Natales, which is porbably a good thing for the Altiplnicpo Sur because it is a long way from town (but taxis into town are only 2000 pesos) but it is very comfortable, the food and drinks are excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. It rained the whole time wee were there which was fine because we just hung out in the hotel playing cards, browsing the internet and drinking Pisco Sours and the jazucci was very pleasant after trekking for 8 days..

We booked a 3 day/2 night tour through Altiplanico Discover which included 2 nights at this hotel. I loved it here. It has a very cool design. It is built into the hillside right next to the lake. It is not in the town of Puerto Natales but it is a short and cheap cab ride or a 20 minute walk. It is a small hotel and very clean. The rooms are surprisingly spacious for such a small hotel. Every room has an amazing view of the lake. The bed was very comfortable and we had a nice sized bathroom with a towel warmer. Breakfast was included every morning. The food was very good. There were a nice amount of choices including pastries, cereal, cakes, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, juices etc. We did not eat in the restaurant for any other meal other then breakfast each morning. The staff is very nice and very helpful. I really enjoyed my stay here and I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

This is a unique eco-hotel with nice architectural elements and views. However, the staff lacked proper communication when contacted about transportation from the airport. Although I contacted the hotel a week prior to my trip, I was not provided the proper information on how to get to the hotel from the airport. As a result, I lost vacation time (hours) and money trying to reach the hotel. I ultimately reached the hotel much later than I anticipated, tired and hungry from the long trip from the US.

My husband and I booked a night in this hotel only because we couldn't get three nights in a row at a different hotel. We wished we could have stayed longer! From the outside, the hotel has a very unique look, but the inside is wonderful. Our room used concrete and other interesting materials to create a feeling and look I've never seen before. We also had a breathtaking view of the fjord. The service was great. The woman working the desk spoke English, Spanish and French from what we heard. We decided to have dinner the one night we stayed and we chose the prix fixe menu. It was incredible, somewhat expensive, but you get what you pay for. If I ever came back to patagonia, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a double room, but there are also single rooms available. I think every room has a vie...

Unfortunately, we were booked into this hotel for one night only, en route to the Torres del Paines National Park. Our group would have liked to have stayed longer. The hotel is designed as an eco-friendly development and is a rather unusual combination of natural materials. It looks rather plain from the exterior, but internally it has a unique character. The views over the Strait of Magellan are fantastic and it is situated within a 15 minutes level walk from the town of Puerto Natales. The rooms are of good size and well appointed, once again in a unique style. The decor may not be to everyone's taste. We stayed in for dinner and the food was excellent and well priced. We had the set menu, with two bottles of wine between 5. The breakfast was buffet style and once again the food was excellent.
The only criticism I would have is that from the reception there is a fairly steep declining passage to the bedrooms and steps at the bottom. Elderly or infirm guests may need some assistance. The staff were excellent and friendly and I am sure assistance would not be a problem. However, this was a minor inconvenience and did not detract from our 5 star rating.

This hotel was of a type unique to us, constructed of natural materials (adobe-like) and at the same time modern. The hotel is spread out allowing for privacy, and integrates well with the surrounding terrain. The rooms are quite large and comfortable, and the location is close enough to the small town of Puerto Natales to walk. Our stay was in December, 2012.

Room Tip: All of the rooms seemed fine

We came to Puerto Natales at the very end of the season, in fact it was last two days before the hotel was going to close for winter. It felt the whole place was just for us as there was just one other couple staying in the hotel. We did get great service and the food in the restaurant was amazing! And I can only say the same thing as other reviewers - the design of the hotel and the views from it are simply amazing!!!
