8.4.Very good.
  • 6.0.Good

    The property is about 3kms out of Calafate but we had a hire car and knew in advance and chose to eat at the hotel every night and the food was good, very large quantities and reasonably priced. Our disappointment with the property was the Wi-fi was very intermittent . We had room 225, the last room on the main floor and the drain grill in the bathroom constantly smelled unless we ran the water in the bidet or the toilet. Both issues were raised with reception but the situation did not improve.

  • 4.0.Fair

    On approaching the hotel we had good first impressions, however once checked in we were left disappointed. The room and hotel in general are in need of some updating and maintenance, as pretty much everything seemed to be worn to the point that you wouldnt expect for a hotel. The check in process was also long and drawn out. We stayed in another hotel of the same bracket earlier on in our trip also in calafate, which was far superior in every way

    Amazing

    Amazing place. Spacious, clean, modern. Great views, great restaurant, reasonably priced. The pool and other facilities were great too. Plenty of parking spaces. WiFi could be better but it’s a theme in that part of the country wherever you go. Definitely recommend this one

  • 6.0.Good

    This hotel could be really great if they fixed a few things. First the good points, nice location, great view over the lake, nice restaurant and bar and friendly staff. Bad points rooms can get very hot but the staff can provide you with a fan which helps. Also the walls are so thin you can here your neighbours. Also dogs fighting and barking outside hotel each night. Plenty of hotels to choose from in this town

    Okay hotel

    The hotel was standard. It did the job but is no way high quality. The hot water for the shower did not work during one of the nights we were there so had a luke warm shower. Internet/WiFi did not work at all and the breakfast option was sub-standard. The view from our bedroom onto the lake was stunning though.

    Great location and amazing views. But the hotel needs some updating, especially the bathroom had a weird smell right from the moment we walked in. The room size is also very small, we had junior suite and it was not even size of a standard room in regular hotels.
