After a very difficult time we spent 1 night here and in the short 24 hours with Valentin, Roberto and the team experienced the real warmth of the Patagonian spirit. The floor to ceiling windows provided panoramic views of the lake,mountains and the valley and the generous hospitality was second to none.The quality of every aspect of food on offer...

Fantastic location with awesome panoramic views. Perfect service. Good food and interesting wine list. I did not expect to find such an amazing small hotel in the middle of nowhere in Patagonia. The only recommendation I have for them is that they should organize their own excursions to Perito Moreno and the other glaciers. To be packed with big groups...

Perfect! We spent 2 nights here (including New Years Eve) and wish we'd spent more! The setting was beautiful and peaceful; the service was impeccable. The staff was incredible. They had a New Years Eve 5 course dinner that was wonderful. The views of the Patagonia steppes were magnificent. The floor to ceiling windows on all sides of the property...

The dining room is facing Lago Argentino with great views at breakfast (sunrise) as well as dinner (sunset). Quality of the food is...

We knew this was the place of choice for our trip to see the glaciers of southern Patagonia, but we certainly did not expect anything as polished and subtle as this. Set in a beautiful open plain, surrounded by mountains that continually changed aspect with the movement of clouds and sun, Eolo surprised us with luxurious simplicity. Built in a...

Perched on a slope overlooking a huge windswept steppe, comprising a 75,000 acre sheep ranch (estancia)..with dramatic, rocky, snow-capped mountains on the second side, and Lake Argentina on the third, Eolo (named after the Greek wind god), starts with a huge advantage. Add to it highly-professional, English-speaking staff for whom no service is too small or too large to accommodate...

Writing this from an amazing hotel in Goa, India, I had to make sure to go back and recommend Eolo, where I was last year. Everything about the stay here was perfect. I can't imagine anywhere nicer in Patagonia. The food and wine were as good as anything in New York, and the scenery...not really something I can put into...
