The view, design, location
Breakfast is rather poor, plus using plastic cereal bowls, no fresh fruits etc
good breakfast, clean rooms,
Location too far from the center, only from 18:00 free shuttle bus Wifi only in community rooms Pool and fitness room, opens at 9:00 am!! Too late, if you want to do morning gym before your breakfast.
The room was very nice and spacious, we had a corner room/suite Nice view from restaurant
No airco but needed, bad breakfast, careless staff, remote - even with a car
Location very beautiful.
Great lake viev. Tasty Dinner.
Not that easy to find the location. It was very warm int the hotel (cause of the sun outside), no aircon. The bathroom (formely stylish) has seen better times.
the reservation office refused to change my booking despite having availability. When trying to book activities, the front desk went through an agency despite my clear recommendation to go direct to the supplier of the tour. When I then booked it on my own, they threatened to charge me the full rate of the activity anyway. It really feels like all they care about is maximising the profit of each customer. The pool water is way to warm, the area around the pool is too humid to lounge, the wifi doesn't work.
Location very beautiful
staff friendly but don't get drinks at the bar of the restaurant,they don't even know how to make a drink.staff not very ready and wifi not working
- bed and shower/bathroom - view on Lago Argentino
- road to hotel in repair (according to hotel the town Calafate is in no hurry to finish the repairs). The diversion on the dirt road is awful - the hotel has very thin walls, one hears everything from other rooms and even from the restaurant/bar - the personnel seems relatively uninterested
The quality and good taste of decoration and desing of the hotel and the room .
The service: We stayed for three nights, one day they didn't fix the room even when we asked for it at the front desk, they didn't provide an explanation of this. The breakfast was poor, some items even were low quality.
Great Location , Fantastic view from rooms and hotel restaurant . Very helpful staff and ever-smiling staff. The view from swimming pool was also breath taking...The whole experience was really nice. There was free shuttle service to the downtown which started at 6 p.m. This was perfect as we were back to the hotel only after 5p.m ( after the tours) And who wanted to leave the hotel after that?? It was such a superb place to stay...very kid friendly too...Awesome is the word! Food at the restaurant was yummy and pretty reasonable though the options were quite limited.
Wifi & No Air-Conditioner( only fans ) however we went in the summer months and it was pretty cold during the nights and during the day we were out so a.c was not required basically.
The setting was great; very peaceful and lovely; the rooms were nice and classy; shuttle into town
The wifi was very poor; could only get a signal in some parts of the lobby; set aways from town (quite a hike from the hotel); the bathroom's plumbing could have been better designed given the price per night.
Beautiful view of the lake
Not all rooms have AC. Our room didn't have one and the temperature in the room was +37C. The stafff was not hepful or accomodating. The hotel was going to charge us more than what was quoted by Booking.com. The rooms are not clean and many things dont work, such as wifi, tub, etc. I would never stay in that hotel again.
Beautiful views of the lake, nice and clean hotel room, shuttle service, chicken dish at the restaurant.
Terrible customer service, particularly the man at the front desk. He was condescending and rude. Was not welcoming nor accomodating. Did not let us have a late check out after one of our day tours to shower and prepare for the airport. Tours were poorly organised. Staff did not communicate details of the tours, such as departure and arrival times, whether we needed lunch etc. Restaurant was nice but again, service was terrible. Took a long time to be seated and for meals to arrive. Meals were also not consistent from day to day. Staff seemed unhappy and unwelcoming. Wifi was awful. Did not work for the majority of our stay and was extremely slow. For the price of this hotel, customer service and staff were dismal. Would not stay here again.
Very very bad wifi, it worked at the reception onbly
1 The hotel looks nice & modern from a distance 2 Good view over Lago Argentina 3 Food generally quite good
1 Staff were generally unhelpful (front desk) and extremely inattentive (bar & restaurant) 2 The fitout is either poorly constructed or just falling apart - the room & public areas are full of broken fittings & illogical placements (eg. electrical cords across doorways) 3 Air con in room did not work 4 Long & rough dirt road to the hotel WiFi extremely slow
Design Suites was attractive, stylish. and comfortable.
There were so many things that did not function in our room and in the hotel. This was a classic case of design over function. From the room being too hot (and we weren't on the hot side of the building) to the tub/jacuzzi not working to the wifi not working to the pool jets not working was extremely disappointing. The staffs response to these things was also disappointing, they seemed resigned.
The view. The view and the architecture. It's incredible.
The location away from the centre. The lousy internet. And the restaurant staff who was anything but kind.
Grest food, beds, friendly staff all for a reasonable price.
Location was a bit far from the center but taxi fares are not so high and the hotel offers a shuttle service.
Beautiful facility and incredible view from the rooms by the lake.
Rooms and hotel were very hot. The rooms had one window that opened only a little so it was impossible to cool down the room. The rooms opposite the lake had a lot of driveway (cars on gravel) noise with the window open at night.
The view over the lake is beautiful. Staff is very helpful. Breakfast is good. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable.
Very poor wifi (limited IP addresses available.) Hotel suffers from form over function. We and friends stayed in a total of 9 rooms, about half of which had issues with temperature, plumbing, etc. The location has its downside - it's a 45 minute walk to town and the hotel shuttle only runs from 6-11pm, once an hour.
Wifi only in the Lobby and very poor.
I didn't like how the staff was not helpful. The Internet was broker then entire duration of our stay and despite their being ample rooms to check into for an early arrival, they made us wait until their 3pm check in time to allow us access. Will not return.
Great rooms! Great pool and facilities.. The design of the hotel and the view are marvellous!
This seemed like a very good deal... We needed a nice, peaceful place and this hotel looked quite cheap given the facilities and design. You understand the price much better once you've stayed there ... Their staff is slow and clueless, their breakfast is a catastrophe (they fill everything at six and just leave cold eggs for hours, they don't clear the tables..) it's just not the service you expect from a large design hotel. In two days, we managed to get locked of our room(was waiting in a towel while the staff wasn't even pretending to hurry), they forgot our lunch boxes for our trek so our full bus had to wait while it took then 10min to make a ham sandwich, the wifi didn't work in the room, they never fixed it... Anyway I'm really not the complaining type and the rooms are great and the pool is amazing!!!' But if you're looking for a decent service, this is probably not the best place for you.
great hotel location, lovely facilities
shame the restaurant menu was so limited
Terrible experience overall. I travel a lot and I am not a naggy customer. In fact this is the first time I wrote an official complaint to a hotel and to booking.com ever. When we arrived in our Junior Suite the temperature was above 30 degrees celsius (Funny at a place that hardly reaches 15 degrees outside). There was no AC. The hotel gave us a portable AC which did not work at all since the window could not be opened to release the hot air generated by the AC's exhaust. So we ended up not being able to sleep at all. The hotel helped us move to another room with AC the next night but didn't offer an appropriate reimbursement for the terrible first night. Staff did not seem to care. On top of that rooms were not in a good shape (bidet toilet not working, loads of dust on the wardrobe). Very sad that a place that is blessed with such great views is run by people who do not care for their guests.
