Small but very cozy hotel. We went with a family of three ( small toddler of 2 years) and had a good time. November is not the busiest month, which suited us fine. Big plusses are the sizable rooms, swimming pool/ spa, full fletched restaurant and nice personnel. But above all the location of the place right at the water... More

We stayed in the Deluxe Suite for our honeymoon for 10 days. Best money ever spent. The staff is amazing, the food was so good we almost didn't want to leave the hotel. You can also order in to your room. And frankly, the view is so beautiful you might really want to spend the whole day there.

This small hotel is beautiful, well located (close to Villa La Angostura center - about 2km) and excellent accommodation. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Good breakfast, following the Argentine standard. The panoramic view of the lake is actually a differential of this little paradise.

We stayed two nights at the Don El Faro and enjoyed it. The only downside is the lack of air conditioning. The room got very hot and was hard to cool down. That meant napping and later sleeping at night was uncomfortable. The main room is lovely and has a wonderful view of the lake. I spent a fair amount... More

The suites were spacious, clean, and had all that was necesary. Food was simple but very well made. The pool was warm, and also, it had a very nice hot tub. The service was really good, as the receptionist was always smiling. The bathrooms were perfect. If you go here, get ready for a jaw-dropping lakefront experience.
