We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. It is the only hotel in Puerto Piramides and the rates are very high compared with the service and luxury you would expect. The hotel is very basic, rooms are clean but basic. Small bathroom, I had no hot water at first to shower, but after asking they turned on something and it was solved in 15 minutes. The room has basic stone floor, a bed and a cupboard. Nothing cosy but clean. Breakfast is very simple, staff not very friendly and do not eat lunch of dinner here (food is not tasteful).

Why stay? Because the views out of the room are great, bring binoculars and you can see whales jumping our of the water. Also, you have a big advantage staying in Puerto Piramides for the whale watching tours. Go on the first ones, you will be only a few and have a much nicer experience than in a crowded boat with 60 people. We also had a rental car and drove to a beach close buy (playa pardelas), there is nothing but nature and 4 other people when we were there. We walked to the shore and saw a whale 50 meters next to us swimming alongside the coast. This is the experience you get when you stay in Puerto Piramides. So either stay in this hotel (expensive) or a hostel if you do not mind , eat in local restaurants and enjoy the nature!

Abbiamo trascorso 2 notti in questo hotel, ma ci saremmo rimasti per tutto il viaggio. Stanza splendida e ampia con vista oceano, letto matrimoniale king size. Strepitoso, così come è strepitosa la Penisola di Valdes.
Unico neo il fatto che la connessione wi-fi in stanza non funzionasse, anche perchè avevamo la stanza più distante dalla hall.

We spent 2 nights in this hotel, but we would have stayed for all the journey. Room comfortable and wide with a wonderful view on the ocean, king size double bed. Fantastic, as penisola Valdes is.
The only problem was the fact that the wi-fi connection was not working in the room, cause the distance from the hall.

We stayed 3 nights in this 'falwty towers' hotel.
The prices our to expensive for the things you get!
You just pay for the view! The view is amazing and you pay for that!

Staff:
Service sucks!! When we arrived, they did'nt showed us the room, they just gave us the key and we needed to cary our luggage to our rooms by ourselves!
They are very unprofessional and unfriendly!!

Rooms:
avarage hotel room, not special..
when we came in to the room, we almost passed out from the scent of air refresher!
There was a machine in the bathroom who sprayed every 30min. an awfull chemical parfum!
and the floor was also dirty!! sand everywhere! The beds are also not comfretable!
Only the view is amazing!! when you take the room on the second floor you can watch whales from your balcony (tip: take a good binocular with you!).
But in the morning the tractors (from the whale watching trip) wake you up very early!!

Spa:
hahahahahahaha, they call it a spa?!!!!!!
the jacuzzi was dirty! and there was NO water in the pool!
terrible!

Breakfast:
for 200euro/night you expact a wonderfull breakfast!!
No eggs!! just bread and a toasting machine, face croisants,
marmelade, dulce the leche and ham and cheese.
dry cake and cold coffee!
The coffee cups on the table were dirty, with coffee rests on in from the morning before!

The restaurant:
The first day we took lunch in the hotel restaurant... the table was dirty, the waiter was unprofessional and the food discusting and expensive!!! that night we desided to go to the restaurant next door 'Towanda' the food there is delicious the prices ok and the servise great!
(2 other great restaurants are: la estacion and la covacha!) the gamba's in la estacion and towanda are great!! la covacha has delicious hamburgers and meet sandwich!!

Conclusion:
YOU PAY FOR THE VIEW!!! (Witch is great!!)
It's to expencive for the service they offer!
Take another accomodation! you have lovely chalets in puerto piramides and the beach is from everybody! Believe me, the view from the hotelroom is not worth of the money you loose!

Room Tip: If you go, but Idon't reccomend it!!! take a room on the second floor with balcony!!

This is the largest accommodation in Puerto Piramides by far, and the only actual hotel. My wife and I stayed for two nights to facilitate extra whale-watching trips locally.

The views from the seaward facing rooms is unarguably fantastic, and whales can be spotted easily from one's bed at the right time of year. Rooms are comfortable and adequate, tho' soundproofing could be improved.

After settling in, we went to the hotel bar for a refreshment where what appeared to be the hotel manager was working. Clearly asking for a drink at a hotel bar is a ridiculous request, given the response we got, however this made us decide to eat elsewhere during our stay and we discovered some delightful local restaurants as a result.

The breakfast buffet is fine, as long as you are not put off by the manager following you around to check that you have not misplaced any item during your visit to the table.

A great location for a Peninsula Valdes visit which bases it's prices probably on its situation more than service, but worth considering for sheer convenience and views.

Room Tip: Don't miss a sea view room.

Perfect location on beach - that is what you pay the hefty price-tag for. Some rooms with ocean view (can spot Whales in the bay). Quiet, clean and decently sized rooms. Would be 5 star but for indifferent service at mealtimes and average quality food. Best hotel in town, but eat elsewhere (see my restaurant reviews).

Room Tip: Upper floor.

This is a great location for watching whales and the views from the rooms are excellent. However, it is greatly overpriced for the quality. The food in the restaurant Is mediocre, the breakfast is minimal at best, the cleaning of the rooms minimal. One night I had to call the front desk due to the noise in the halls, which persisted until 2 am and which the staff did nothing to mitigate. It's probably the best one can do in this location, which is a shame.

Room Tip: second floor facing water
