We were with an OAT tour of 24, staying three nights. Our suite absolutely humongous, with a once-kitchen area, gigantic bedroom, nice bathroom, and two TVs. Free wifi, nice breakfast buffet (do try the chipas). We liked the bar area and the wine prices were great and the pours were generous. There are two gift shops at the hotel, a...

Make sure you do not get a room overlooking the street, as some places on the street seem to be open all night. Breakfast is included, but I found the bread to be odd, and the offerings pretty modest. I did have a chicken Ceasar salad for dinner, and it certainly did not resemble the original recipe. The staff had...

my daughter and i stayed here for 2 nights over the xmas period. our room was nice as was the hotel, but nothing particularly special. we liked the fact that there was a ping pong room. the best thing was the front desk -- the receptionists were quite helpful. breakfast was too much on the sweet side but otherwise fine.

Room size very ample but walls rather thin so outside sounds and nearby rooms could be annoying. Buffet breakfast included with the room was just okay with limited selection of some hot and cold items. Wifi was weak and intermittent in the rooms. Beds were rather firm. Wall outlets for charging personal electronics was either of the European type c...

If you're staying for longer in El Calafate you want to be at this beautiful, homely place. There are few things better than coming back from a hike and spend some time in the wirlpool and then go down to the (very good!) restaurant. Great place and very nice people. (Note: the spa aera only opens at 3pm, so no...

Located just two blocks from the Main Street in El Calafate. The front desk staff all spoke good English. The rooms were warm, but you can open a window in the rooms.

Location was central. service was average. This hotel did not give a complimentary water bottle. After a long drive we expected this. This simple but important gesture would have gone a long way. As water was very expensive, we bought from a local store next door. However, the hotel would not lend me an opener to open beer bottle unless...
