“the best in El Calafate”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

This is without any doubt the best hotel in El Calafate. It's supposed to have one of the biggest SPA of the whole South America, just remember to book the treatments in advance because when it's high season you might not have the chance to enjoy it. Going to the restaurant for the breakfast it's worth already the whole trip!

El Calafate and Perito Moreno are spellbinding.

This hotel isn't.

It's located fairly close to the town center. The rooms were basic. The concierge was non-existent past 5 pm! The bell boy was the saving grace and helped to keep the luggage safe.

Breakfast was okay. Not great.

Wouldn't go back if I had another option.

First room next to elevator. Changed rooms. Next room 363 adjacent to the boiler of the central heating system. Vibrating walls. Service utterly poor. Fried eggs (surcharge!) take 40 minutes. Never again! live is too short. This is sad because Calafate is such a mesmerising place.

Conveniently located a couple of blocks away from the main street in downtown, this place is beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and had a great variety of choices that ranged from your typical cold cuts, croissants, and dulce de leche, to scrambled eggs and mimosas.

The spa has a great indoor pool and a mini gym, as well as fantastic services. I loved the chocolate facial (thanks Mauro!), and wished I had tried some of the other services.

Special thanks to Romana, Mattias, and Mariana, as well as the rest of the staff for being approachable and highly professional.

This hotel is the "best" hotel in Calafate. Don't get me wrong, its nice. But its not everything the staff thinks it is. The clerk who met us at check in was incompetent. When I checked out, I paid in pesos and they didn't have the correct change so the asked if they could "short me" a few pesos. Really? Location was fine and rooms were fine. Breakfast was also terrible.

This hotel is a perfect place to stay while in El Calafate. It is short walking distance to all of the restaurants in town and all of the nightlife you would be looking for, The staff was very helpful with recommending the best places for dinner and the best steak. Also helped us by calling a taxi and really anything we needed. The rooms are nice and the beds are comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and overall had no complaints about the hotel.
