We only needed a hotel for 1 night as as town was very quiet of tourists we decided to shop around. We looked at several hotels including the renowned Llao Llao Hotel and El Casco - both empty and both rather stuffy, over formal and somewhat above themselves...not good hospitality in my book. We opted in the end for Charming. What a good choice! The hotel even put up the Union Jack amongst its flags in prep for our arrival. Great location on the lake with a fatastic vista. The rooms were well equipped, very clean and had sauna, steam and spa baths. I travel a lot and my biggest bug bear having curly hair is that none of the hotels have a diffuser attachment on the hairdrier well accept Charming- well done Charming you have met my global challenge!!! The pool area is lush with a pool wonderfully warm, great view and facilities. Breakfast was good as was lunch. But the real clincher for me was the passion for hospitality and pride of the product from Alberto the owner mirrored by his team. No it doesnt offer the turndown service people expect at a 5 star but a) who wants curtains drawn on that view and b) turn down is sooo 'last year' we can all pull back our own sheets surely!??! Excellent stay and worthy of its current no.1 rating. Gracias!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Charming Luxury Lodge & Private Spa, built on the bluff of a cliff, delights with panoramic vistas of Lake Nahuel Huapi and the Andes mountains range. The lodge's wood and stone work is reminiscent of a small alpine village. The large balconies of each residence and suite are suspended over the bluff. Just below, the waves crash upon Playa Bonita and the sides of the cliff. The hotel's interior is just as unique. Total comfort is offered in the Private Spas that form part of each suite. One can choose between a dry sauna, a double jacuzzi with ozonetherapy and an LCD TV, a scottish shower, and a finnish shower with aromacolor therapy. Each of these options are integrated into each suite, allowing the guest total control over his or her relaxation. Charming is a place designed to astonish its guests with its beauty, luxury, tranquility, comfort, unforgettable views, and amiable service. ... more less
