We were so pleasantly surprised as to how comfortable this hotel was in this remote area of the globe. Good restaurant, nice spa and a VERY WARM pool.
All staying in Calafate area need to keep in mind that all excursions start between 0700-0900 so there is always traffic in the hotels, regardless of where you stay. With all the outdoors things to do, hopefully, you are one of those getting up early to make it to you excursion.
The hotel is just on the outskirts of town but they have a very convenient shuttle that takes you back & forth. I did not feel inconvenienced by this and we had views of Lago Argentina to boost! The only drawback was that their was a heater but nothing to regulate the temperature to a cooler setting, hence, the 4 rating for comfort. We did go in summer and had to leave the window open to get some ventilation.
Comments about barking dogs that I came across in other reviews are exaggerated. Yes, there are wild dogs and they do get loud at times but it was not incessant and frequent. I've been to Hawaii and the wild chickens and rooster crowing every morning was more frustrating than this. Despite being wild, these dogs were not threatening at all wherever we walked. This experience comes with the territory.

Everything about the hotel was great. We were travelling with our 14 yr old son.
The staff were always helpful and friendly making you feel at home. We mostly only spoke English but that was never a problem.
We were initially staying only 2 nights and then off to another destination. As it turned, out we contacted the hotel and asked if they had room for us again 6 days later, just before Christmas. When we returned, they gave us the same room and invited us to attend a small get together they had for the staff at midnight.
The staff were always helpful in suggesting restaurants, things to see and do, and getting transportation for us.
The rooms were large, comfortable and very clean. The beds were comfortable.
The breakfast which was included, tasted great and was healthy. Even though it was not on the buffet table, you could ask for eggs. The fruit cocktail was amazing. The "lunches to go" were also good.
Also, after looking in many shops at items to purchase and the quality and price, it turned out the gift shop in the hotel had the best quality and prices than the shops in the town.
Have stayed in many hotels in different countries and think this is one of the best. Truly recommend a stay here.
