“Good budget choice with unbeatable location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2012

Everything in Puerto Pirámides is close by (it's a small village afterall), but Hotel Aca has the best spot to be found. Patagonia is expensive, and this is great value for money.

The Pros: best location, place to park your car, good breakfast (continental style), ocean view in some rooms (for no extra cost) clean, comfortable bed (matresses and pillows were brand new), and very reasonably priced. Staff is friendly, and will try to help you if you need anything. Trust them for their recommendations about where to dine and what to do.

The Cons: this is one of the oldest hotels in P.Pirámides, and it needs a renovation for purely aesthetic reasons. Mainly in the rooms and garden. The hotel's reaturant is good but not open all-year long: only in the high season.

Nothing fancy here, but you will find everything comfortably and working, at more than fair price. If you want your room to be pretty, go to somewhere else and pack some extra dollars.

Room Tip: All the rooms cost the same so you can't guarantee an ocean view... but if you make our reservat...

We stayed at this modest motel 26 years ago, and were deighted to find that it had in essence remained the same, with improvements! The rooms are fairly basic, but very warm with extremely comfortable beds and views of the bay. There aren't many hotels where you can see whales from your window, but this is one of them! The restaurant is now only open for breakfast, offering a selection of fresh bread and pastries, along with cereals and endless amounts of delicious coffee (or tea if that's your thing). Once again, the views from here are of the bay, so whale watching at this time of year starts early in the morning! The staff were extremely helpful, advising us on weather conditions and helped to secure us a boat trip with an excellent company, and also filled us in on the history of the port. This is a no frills place, but very comfortable and as for the location - you'd be hard pressed to beat it.

There are more accommodation options in Puerto Piramides than the beach-front Las Restingas and the ACA Motel, but, as other reviewers have said, travellers are not exactly spoiled for choice here - especially if budget is a factor.

This place is part of the national chain of motels run by the Argentine automobile club. What you get is a no-frills motel. Clean linen. Hot water. Heating and cooling that works. Cable TV if you want it. A basic breakfast. A friendly face in reception. And an affordable (by Patagonian standards) bill at check-out. Luxury it ain't. It could really do with a bit of TLC and needs a lick of paint. But it's very well located. Bottom line: there are far worse places to rest your head after a long day's whale-watching.

We were travelling with two young children. Part of the attraction for us in staying at the ACA Motel was that it had quadruple rooms and a playground on site. The accommodation worked out well - it had a double room plus bunk beds in an adjoining room. The playground wasn't that great - very tired and overgrown with weeds (but there's a slightly better one down the street, next to the petrol station).

In Puerto Piramides, the choice is clear : either hotel Las Restingas which is very expensive, or the ACA Motel which is basic but also rather expensive for what you get. We paid USD 100 a night.

They know that they are in a strong position since the other option is to stay at Puerto Madryn, 100 km far away from Puerto Piramides and the whales.

The room is basic but clean. The breakfast is correct. The wifi connection is very slow.

I’ve been to Puerto Piramides last spring with my wife and my parents in law. We did not find a room at Las Restingas, which is supposed to be the best hotel in Piramides. A couple of friends rented a room in an apartment and they were disappointed. So we decided to go to this “motel”. The place is not a luxury hotel. That needs to be said. But the name is uglier than the property. I have to admit that it is definitely good value for money (especially, taking into account that hotels in Patagonia are quite expensive).
