We stayed at this hotel, Casa Antucura, for 3 days of the beginning of 2014 from the end of 2013. It was a place to take by rent-a-car from the airport of Mendoza for approximately 1 hour, but it was spot on to select this hotel. We were very much satisfied with delicious foods, gentle staff and especially atmosphere to be able to relax to be in our home. The scenery of the Andes to see from a window is not forgotten throughout the life. There is unmissable value in bodega (winery) provided along. Their wine was really splendid and totally shined like a jewel in jewel box. We want to come back to our home of Mendoza once again.

My wife and I stayed two nights there. The setting is absolutely amazing and every window has a beautiful view of the valley and most look out on the Andes, which are about 5 miles west. The hotel is more of a lodge--there are five beautiful, large, comfortable rooms with very nice, clean and modern bathrooms and a couple common sitting/living room areas and the house kitchen, where the chef cooks breakfast every morning and prepares lunch or dinner if you want. The food was very good: simple and tasty. The meals were also reasonably priced: lunch was 120 pesos and dinner 240 pesos (which, if you pay in US dollars amounts to about $12 and $24 respectively). There is also a beautiful pool and connected jacuzzi outside, which, along with the rest of the hotel, have stunning views. Finally, there is a rooftop deck where we had dessert and coffee around a fire pit while we looked at the stars.
On a personal note, I also got sick for the majority of my time there and the staff took care of me like family. They made me vegetable soup and tried to make sure I was as comfortable as possible. It made what otherwise could have been a miserable couple of days into the best it could have been under the circumstances.
Whenever we return, we would definitely stay again!
"Avoid it, if possible. Top prices+terrible service"
The hotel is well located; their value proposition is simple yet attractive: a small vineyard overlooking the Andes. On a personal level, hotel staff is nice, polite and well-intended --they go out of their way to try to please visitors. However, they are overwhelmed and under-trained. Example: the same young lady in charge of check-ins and check-outs, waits tables during breakfast and lunch, cleans the pool, waters the garden and arranges for tourist activities. The result: if you need anything, you'd better arm yourself with patience. The owners seemed to have forgotten that the "boutique hotel" concept is not only about charging high prices but also offering excellent good service. At Postales, you pay top dollars but get sub-par service. You will be much better off at any of the other boutique hotels in the area.
