design of the common areas was very swanky, bar was nice too.
Our room door lock was broken. Spa/swimming pool area was out of commission.
The design of this hotel is spectacular. Particularly to note: The color scheme, the use of rough material together with furniture choice. But most of it, the originality of the architecture makes it a must-stay place. It is located not far from city strip, but slightly overlooking the lake, which makes for fantastic views from the rooms and the beautiful bar and lounge area.
Check out time is a bit early for this high-end hotel category (10am - pushable to 11am), and swimming pool could have been cleaner.
The hotel is located an easy walk from the main street of El Calafate. The hotel is very modern and nicely fitted out. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Good buffet breakfast.
The comfort of the room and the warm welcome feeling of the hotel.
Good central location, 10 minutes from the central area with cares, restaurants and local shopping.
The location was easy walk to center of town. The staff was helpful , polite, and timely. The hotel design was very appealing, modern, the dinner menu was excellent. It was a bit pricey, but was high season.
All was fine.
A pure pleasure to stay at the splendid hotel
Design was nice from foyer to the room and a nice place to be.
The view and the bar.
The receptionist was appallingly rude and obnoxious. The temperature of the hotel was like an oven.
Clean, open space. Breakfast was good and varied. Dinner was also good.
We stayed in November. The room became too warm for sleeping even with the heater off. A/C was not available, so we left the window open while we sleep. This became a problem because the neighborhood dogs were noisy and cars passing by up the hill. The pool had jet streams, which I suppose doubles as a hot tub. However, the water was not warm enough to qualify as a hot tub. Also, some of the tiles in the pool were moldy, and one light underwater was just left hanging, which could be dangerous for people in the pool.
The venue is a dream and so are the rooms. But I also loved the Lama at the pool (yes a real one)
Nearly nobody speaks English.
The hotel is very beautiful and modern!! Nice breakfast and have a wonderful view
The sauna wasn`t working and no one resolved the problem so we couldn`t enjoy the spa!!
The distance to town was misleading I asked for smoking non in house. Not at all what they advertise. Not worth the price
Real nice spacious and nicely designed hotel . The staff was really friendly and helpful .
Beautiful design, comfort and great staff. Excellant service, amazing view.
Located high, requires a little climb. For old people or anyone who has walking difficulties it would be very hard.
