A most sublime smallish place (in terms of number of rooms) with nice spa, generous common area, superb restaurant with gourmet food, set on the shore of this spectacular lake. This is our second time here and it won't be our last.

We stayed our last night in Argentina at Las Balsas. What a wonderful hotel. I wish we had spent all of our Villa La Angostura time here! The night before our arrival, I received an email asking for our arrival time. In the morning, I responded that I thought that we would get there around noon because my husband had...

The owner is very friendly, and the hotel is beatifully located on the lake with a very nice indoor/outdoor Spa. However, our room was so tiny we could hardly unpack (slightly more then 20sqm), we could do much better for paying $700 for 2 nights. Also - location a bit hard to find, at the end of a long dirt-road,...

This hotel is beautifully positioned on a pristine lake. The facilities and restaurant are very good and the staff are excellent. The only issue, as may others have commented upon, is the size of the rooms, which are very small. If this isn't an issue for you, then I highly recommend!

This place is a beautiful gem on the edge of lake in a very quiet area outside of Bariloche. Although the room we stayed in was tiny, we spent very little time in the room. The service was outstanding, the food was the best we had on our South America trip, and the hikes nearby were wonderful.

This place is amazing! From the moment you arrive everyone is attentive and the food is out of this world. Dont miss the pool, the view of the lake while relaxing is a must. This is the place to be if you want to relax and forget about the world.

My wife and I had lunch here at recommendation of a friend in Buenos Aires. We were not hotel guests. The outdoor setting is stunning. Food and service were superb. Servers spoke English. We had trout, salad, and soup. Pricey, but reasonable in US dollars compared with similar fine restaurants in North America.
