Not enough can be said about the hospitality and helpfulness of the B&B's owner, Ignacio Sanchez. Nacho, as he is known, runs a beautiful B&B located on the edge of Lujan de Cuyo and the border with Maipu. It is perfectly located for the adventurous wine buff who likes to bicycle from winery to winery (Nacho can arrange for a bike to be delivered to you at the B&B), or tourists like ourselves who wanted a car to drive us around. Nacho arranged three days of wine tasting and a day exploring the Andes with little advance warning. I was amazed that he was able to coordinate such quality venues and didn't fail to think of every detail. Nacho must have strong relationships with the wineries because each one offered a truly unique and exciting experience.
Taxis are fairly cheap in Argentina, so it is much more economic to take a taxi to visit the wineries in Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu. We spent around 300-400 pesos each day that we visited wineries in this area. It is also cheaper to have a driver to take you to Valle de Uco if you are traveling with another person than to book with one of the wine tours operating out of Mendoza. We spent 1400 pesos for a driver, total, which is far less than the US $150 per person that would have been charged by one of the tour operators!

I was there with my family and considering the price we paid for the rooms we were all impressed, the rooms were really clean and I think that they were recently renewed as well, definitely a great value. Just 5 blocks away from all the restaurants, no need to pay for a taxi to go dinner!

The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was nice, though it was noisy from the club across the street. The pool was nice. The breakfast was OK, but not terrific. We were not able to pay with a credit card, as their system was down.

Nice, reasonably priced hotel. Comfortable and clean. Close to bus station and a cheap taxi ride from the center. Helpful check in staff, and the free breakfast is good to have (although fairly basic). There's free WiFi which is great, although the signal is weaker in the rooms than downstairs. There's also free computers in the lobby that you can use. Only complaint was the bed, a 'matrimonial bed' but it had a crack in the middle that was uncomfortable to sleep on. Also the sheets were too small for the bed.

This place is in the middle of nowhere, on a dirt road, about 12 miles from the closest village. It is not well marked, and very easy to miss; we did miss it driving there at night and had to drive back to Mendoza to sleep. We did go back the next day just to see how we could have driven by and not seen it.
When you arrive at the entrance, you are looking at a house which would fit into a favela in Rio. The estancia is within the same property behind the house, and not visible from the dirt road.
The entire area stinks of horse feces. Definitely not we thought we were signing up for when we made our reservations.
We decided to forfeit our $450 deposit and drove back to Mendoza.
Would not recommend this place. The pictures on Expedia are VERY deceptive.
