Initially we booked a hotel around the corner which was double booked so they moved us to the Portal del Santo, which was the best that could have happened to us. Beautiful scenery, marvellous service by the owners themselves and terrific home made yam.

The pool is perfect for relaxation after a 3 hours horse ride or an exhausting wine tour.
The best choice in Cafayate!

We stayed in this wonderful place around christmas, planned only two, but finally stayed 4 nights. The place is gorgeous, the rooms are spacious, clean and well designed, the breakfast was just delicious, the garden and pool area are amazing and the owners are very helpful and always friendly. We highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs have a nice view!!!!! It's worth the upgrade.

We were attending Harvest event Estancia Cafayate; the air con was good, bed firm, quiet, great breakfast, good pricing. What marked the experience was the family whom owned/ran it. Even the marmelades tasted homemade. Nice:)

We were already staying in another hotel, which had no availablity for the extra couple of nights that we wanted. Luckily we found Portal del Santo, by far the nicest place we stayed in. The hosts, Rolo and Angelica and their son, could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble, even carrying our bags out to the car on our departure.The hotel itself is beautiful, immaculate and relaxing -our room had double doors opening on to a veranda overlooking the pool, where we could enjoy a bottle of wine at the table in the evening ( the room is even supplied with wine glasses and a bottle opener). The breakfast, too, was one of the best as most of it was home made - lovely conserves (particularly the one made from red wine! ) and sweet things, and freshly squeezed orange juice. For the many thoughtful details and the exceptionally warm welcome I highly recommend this family run hotel.

Room Tip: Front ground floor rooms with a veranda overlooking the pool

We were at Portal del Santo for only one night and if we would have found that place before, we would had for sure stay longer. The owners are soooo sweet and welcoming. The backyard is absolutely magnificent with the beautiful pool and the jacuzzi with a waterfall in it. Its like a little private oasis. The breakfast is also very good. The location is also perfect, just a few steps from Bodega Nanni which has some great wine and some wonderful food. I would definitely recommend this place.
Thanks

We were warmly welcomed by our hosts Rolo and Angelica Garcia when we checked in the hotel. They were gracious and opened their home to us 1 We were a bit early for check in but they stored our luggage and gave us information about the surrounding area. Our room was very large with a tiled floor, very large bathroom, view to the moountains and the pool. It alsohad a microwave and coffee service so that we could brew a cup any time. Large screen TV and very excellent air conditioning. On the flip side, they could use more storage space, and the lighting needs to be upgraded.
Breakfast was very good with hard boiled eggs offered. The grounds are extensive , planted with basil, tomatoes, flowers, and roses. IN addition, they have a parilla that is available to the guests and outdoor seating for about 15 . Very conducive to familiy gatherings.
We had to check out at 11, but were given use of the grounds for as long as we needed.
A very enjoyable stay.
And, by the way, Roloasked me to describe him as tall, svelt and blond !!!! He had a great sense of humor.
