    - quite a bit of a journey to the center of El Calafate (took us 45 min walking), hotel offers a shuttle service though (in the evening) - second heating in our room was not working, hotel should check all installations before check in of the guest

    - very friendly and competent staff (without exception!) - breakfast good with good variety, better than most other breakfasts we had in Argentina - rooms small but good cleanliness - restaurant: very good quality food, good value for money, very nice atmosphere, great service - view on the lake is outstanding, nice lobby - quality of drinks at the bar (cocktails) was perfect - WiFi was working at good speed most of the time (better than any other WiFi in El Calafate)

    The restaurant is very nice, yet the food not that amazing and a little pricy for what it is. I had the Merluza filet.

    This is great value for a beautiful quiet stay a little outside of touristy town. The hotel is very luxurious for the price, has very clean rooms, cozy lounge areas and a big backyard with a nice path to walk down to the lake & boardwalk. Check out the bar! Andy mixes fantastic drinks!

    I chose the hotel because a combination of things. Two being (1) breakfast that looks amazing on the website and (2) the shuttle, since the hotel is out of the center and 3 km walking is to much for my kids. The breakfast did not stand out. It was good and had many nice things, but the bread on the second day was really hard and somehow the choices were not that great as i thought. Many pastries , so if you love those it is perfect. My kids loved it. The people working in the breakfast room seem understaffed and maybe therefore a smile or helpfull comment was not available from them. The shuttle only goes fom late afternoon till evening. And once per hour. It carries only 14 people so regularly there may be no space especially for the last ride. know that taxis are not so expensive here, but if you have a shuttle service for a hotel that is away from the center: make it an outstanding service I would suggest. Let it drive continously so it will be a differentiating service. It will attract customers for sure. One final remark: if you have such a great location and view I would suggest to invest more in creating a really great terrace. I would sit there a lot. Have more chairs and tables, instruct the bar people to deliver also great service outside, have blankets and heaters available. It will make people stay and enjoy the terrace and views, while ordering food and beverage. I would have stayed and eat/drink there for sure. Put a few toys for kids and more families will come. You have big family rooms available that not everybody has, so why not make it more attractive for kids? Put the toys 30-40 meters from the terrace so the kids noise will not disturb the silence too much and don’t bother everyone there. Everybody happy.

    De people at the reception were really friendly and helped us arrange a programme that was great for us and the kids. De shuttle driver was a very energetic guy in a good way. Helpful, nice for the kids and always smiling. The view is great on the lake. Bar drinks and food were good choice and tasted fine. Big bed in the room was awsome. Hygiene and general spaces all well kept.

    Wi-fi is bad in your room, and in the lobby. It only works in the restaurant. There was a mix-up and we were charged with extra money for a dinner that we didn't have. Thankfully, the staff took care of it nicely.

    The restaurant and the lobby are very nice. The bar makes excellent cocktails. The hotel has an old luxury feel.

    Choose a different hotel closer to town.

    Located about 2.5 miles from town, it's too far to walk and the hotel shuttle doesn't run frequently enough, so we ended up using taxis several times. About $10US each way...it adds up. The airport taxis charged extra as well. The rooms had poor sound insulation, so the night was filled with noise -- street noise, talking from the neighboring rooms, hallways, etc. Uncomfortable beds, stains all over the carpet, and a mediocre breakfast. Wifi was terrible. Had to go to the front desk to check email.

    Helpful and friendly front desk staff. Good water pressure for the shower. Get a lake view room to cut down on road noise. Bring water and snacks from the grocery store downtown because they charge for everything. They have a mini-refrigerator in the room.
