Service is by far the shining star of this hotel, and in my opinion it negates the shortcomings mentioned in the next paragraph. Camilla by day and another very nice woman (unfortunately, I never got her name) at night were incredibly helpful with hiking ideas, dinner and winery reservations, and setting up and clearing a table for us to have our own dinner (which we provided) in the evenings. Everyone spoke English well. There is no restaurant on-site, and nearby restaurants don't open until 9 p.m. Therefore, it is a challenge to eat out with kids. That's why this dinner set-up was so important. They do supply good wines from the owner's winery, which were reasonably priced. It was lovely to sit on the terrace with some wine, cheese, bread, smoked salmon and olives.
The main negative is that it didn't live up to the nearly $300/night that we paid. Granted, this was for the separate two-bedroom suite, which was great with 2 kids. However, the pool is very small, the hot tub was out of order, we lost electricity one night, hot water lasted only a few minutes, our single bathroom light was burned out for two days, and the cleanliness/condition of the unit left much to be desired (stained carpeting, heavily scratched furniture, and didn't appear to be vacuumed when we arrived). The beds were comfortable and sheets were crisp and clean.
Very good location for exploring wineries and the surrounding country, including hikes in the Andes. Better location than downtown Mendoza.
