I saw pictures of the magnificent views of the hotel and immediately booked this place. Pros: - You are greeted with champagne. Nice touch. - The standard rooms have jacuzzis - Heated pool, about 5' deep. The heat fogs up the glass windows though, so don't expect to have a view while in the pool Cons: - Bad ventilation: It...

Stayed at the design suites. The pool was nice and also there is a shuttle to and from downtown which was convenient. The breakfast was decent but the best feature of the hotel is the sweeping views of the massive lake just outside. My room also had a huge floor to ceiling picture window and a jacuzzi. Staying outside the...

Wether you are in your room, your shower or having breakfast, you have the most unobstructed view of the lake and mountains of what I believe all of El Calafate's hotels. It is magnificent and it is what makes this hotel what it is. We drove around the town and I didn't see a hotel that could have had a...

As we rented the car at the airport in El Calafate, we were told we had chosen one of the best hotels in town, but it did not strike me until we got there. I was absolutely surprised by the fancy design (yeah, the name applies) and the cool stylish room with a very nice bathroom. Being welcomed with a...

Rooms are very nice and large, modern bathrooms, views are spectacular, overall great hotel. It is true that, being right by the lake, it is not really walking distance to the city centre, as other people have noted. However, I don't fault the hotel for this, as they did not choose the position of the lake, and they do provide...
