Excellent staff but room quality I would describe as 3 stars. Others described it as Motel 6. The rooms could use an update and toiletries offered seem to vary depending on room type. Breakfast is pretty standard with an omelette station if you can find the chef. A caution about the water. Filling a basin or the tube you will notice black flecks. I'm curious about what a water quality test would reveal.
Made me feel like a Patagonian Princess

I arrived at 8:30am even though check in was at 3pm. You leave your bags in the main lobby which at first freaked me out but then I noticed how many employees were on the floor watching and helping. I was able to go get breakfast, which was incredible and I took full advantage of every day. Not normally a hotel breakfast fan. Along with the traditional pastries, meats, fruit, your basic (high quality) breakfast staples, they offer to cook you eggs and by request, they made me a traditional mate. Dinner was in the same restaurant (lunch was at the bar area of the hotel lobby, also incredible). The serving of traditional meat I ordered was probably the best lamb I have ever had. Also the biggest. Potentially for 2 people but I definitely finished the plate in my room after I left. I accidentally ordered a bottle of wine rather than a glass and once I got over my initial shock of "do I really need to finish a whole bottle of wine," I realized how well it paired with the meat and truly enjoyed it. They let me take both to my room with me. The staff was so incredibly helpful, patient, and fantastic at their jobs. As they only started letting tourists into Argentina Nov 1st, many places had employees that showed a clear disinterest in helping someone who has a basic, Dora the Explorer knowledge of Spanish. This was not the case here. They have a WhatsApp texting line which was a godsend as I often have many questions. They were so responsive, gave me so much advice, helped me with dinner reservations at the hotel restaurant, and organize transport to the airport which I had to change the time on a few times because I am habitually late. As well, my horseback riding tour was cancelled morning of which made me incredibly sad but I didn't have the heart to rebook a new one right away. A man at the front desk said the tour he recommended would start at 11. At 10:41. I texted him asking if it was too late to get that reservation. Within 12 minutes, I was picked up by the guide. TALK TO THEM ABOUT THIS TOUR. IT WAS INCREIBLE. 3 hours on a horse to a lake with incredible people which says a lot about the caliber of quality they hold themselves to. THE SPA. OH MY GOD. It is incredible with 2 rooms with huge wall to ceiling windows looking out onto the golf course and lush green hotel property. One room is the pool and jacuzzi, the second is personal hot baths and cold baths and a sauna. The aforementioned amenities were so clean and well kept, no slippery, gross floors at all. Though, I will say that the showers seem like an afterthought and could use some work as the maintenance was not on par with the rest of the hotel at all. The spa was truly my favorite part. I do wish that it opened earlier in the day as it only starts at 12. You need a reservation to get into the spa and they are hour by hour, on the hour which I didn't love but this was a COVID procedure which I appreciated. Again, reservations were via text. I did try to book a treatment on 2 days but due to a misunderstanding/miscommunication, the first day was not scheduled and I was left feeling stupid even though I thought I made myself clear. I had the option to still get it but the person in charge of the treatment had just left, I just didn't want to be so spoiled as to ruin someone's evening. Life happens. This was the only case where someone might need a slightly better grasp on the English language but again, they didn't have English speaking tourists for close to 20 months and you can fall out of practice with a language very quickly The room was so lovely with a great bed, soft towels, and windows overlooking a grassy area of their grounds. The minifridge was stocked with supplies like water and mini bottles of champagne and they had house keeping but only on request which I did not mind as I enjoyed knowing no one would come into my room. The one thing I did not enjoy but I also never commented on was the bathroom. I think the air vent may have broken which made it very stuffy.
Loved it - pool is the best

The service is impeccable, all the communal areas are very nicely decorated and spacious, and I am absolutely obsessed with the heated indoor pool which has a glass roof - its the most enjoyable way to relax (dont forget to book your pool slots if you are coming during covid times)! wifi worked perfectly, its centrally located and very clean. Downsides are the rooms - they arent very luxurious and they are quite tired. But it didnt affect my stay here at all, and I’d return in a heartbeat.
Not sure! Centrally locates.

The hotel is walking distance to downtown which was very convenient for the one time we had time to go out and explore. The restaurant including breakfast is in a nice complex across the street. It’s disappointment was with the moldy shower and the WiFi that never worked. We also reached out to the front desk. The other stuff like the low water pressure in the shower and the aged furnishing really was doable. The staff is not the friendliest but ok. Maybe this is average for the area. Not sure. Also if you are a light sleeper the tours start pretty early and the busses and all the hustle and bustle starts from around 5:30 am. Ask for a room away from the street.

We were in room 381. Pretty bad. Small, & not very comfortable. Neither our friends or us would ever return to this hotel. Convenient to walk into town is the only plus for the hotel. Terrible breakfast also.
