Very disappointing

Reviewed 3 may, 2019

Great view and nice location. BUT There is no 24/7 reception so we had to Check our the night before . There was no assistance with the languages and it is an effort to carry them through the stairs. There is no restaurant available in the hotel! Breakfast below basic/average. The lady at the breakfast although was very helpful and smiley! The room ( we had the suite) at the begging looks clean but there was an very bad smell coming from the bathroom drains ! Room wasn’t as warm as it should have been and we had the heating on All the time .

Blanca Patagonia Hotel Very Disappointing The Pros - stunning view Con’s Advertised as 4 Star - experience was 1 star Does not cater for guests with luggage. No lifts inside or outside the hotel and just getting your bags to reception is a hassle. Getting them to your room is worse. You are greeted by George at the front desk, who then tells you, amongst other things that there is no restaurant. The bar area is not inviting, it looks like an after thought. Walking into the hotel, there are broken chairs on the sundeck, and the deck itself is also damaged. We were tired and hungry when we arrived and George suggested a take-away from a local restaurant which he stated has good food. A menu was provided, however, there were no prices! We asked for a menu with prices and George refused and we were informed that he has to negotiate a price with the restaurant. This felt unorthodox at best, but we were stuck. We ordered a steak, cooked rare and a piece of salmon, both with veg. We were told dinner would arrive 730pm. I approached George at 8pm and was told rather rudely it was only 715pm! George was wrong and just walked away. Dinner arrived eventually and it was terrible. It was over-cooked and covered in a thick oil. We still had no idea of the cost. We decided to have a shower and go to bed and the next day we would eat away from the hotel. The shower had a major leak and the bathroom flooded - we only just stopped the water from going on the carpet. The room was clean but at best you would describe it as below average. The Walls were thin and you could hear neighbours chatting and showering. Breakfast: I was Jet lagged and walking around at 4am I noticed all the breakfast items were out and uncovered! It was awful. The female staff member who was in charge of the breakfast area from 7am was on her own and worked very hard. She was very helpful and pleasant. Can’t recommend this hotel.

Pretty good

Family of five in a cabaña. Enjoyed our stay. Nice views and service. Good breakfast. I don’t understand those complaining about the hotel being far from the town center - yes it is a bit far off but this is one of the things you know in advance before booking! Btw good choice of background music at the lounge

Beautiful hotel on edge of town

Reviewed 22 january, 2018

We had a car and the hotel has plenty of parking so the slight distance from town was not a problem for us. The hotel is very lovingly cared for. The plantings are beautiful. The jacuzzi is set in its own little room with a changing room and spectacular view over the lake. We didn't try the restaurant since it was a lot of fun to go into town, but the wine we got was among the best we tried in Patagonia. Yes, sometimes there is no one at the front desk but they can be reached easily by ringing the bell. The hotel is tasteful, serene and welcoming. The breakfast was good, although we were 5 minutes late one day and everything was being taken away. You can't go wrong here. The owner is lovely and the staff are very helpful with everything although their English is not perfect. I highly recommend Blanca Patagonia for your stay in El Calafate, especially if you use Uber of have a car, although the distance to town is not bad.

Disappointing experience

Reviewed 15 march, 2017

The hotel is ok in absolute terms but price/quality is not good. Two elements stand out as mentioned by other travelers: location (ok if you have a car) and staff. The front-desk staff is completely unhelpful and will let you sort out your problems. One notable exception is the lady preparing breakfast. She was lovely.
