I highly recommend a corner room. The service was impeccable. The food and drinks were outstanding. Bed was very comfortable and the corner room was quiet. Exceeded expectations in every... More

Our travel agent, Glove Travel, had booked us into another property in El Calafate, but it closed. Glove--to our everlasting thanks--used credits at Eolo, allowing us to enjoy this wonderful, one of a kind property. The simple architecture hides simple but elegant accomodations in this 17-suite property. Meals are taken in a dining room with sunset views that are just... More

I had the good fortune to stay at Eolo over the Christmas holidays last year - it was a beautiful setting, very gracious, rooms are very modern and have every amenity, fabulous bathrooms and the views are spectacular.

Lovely straightforward room. Good food, good location for Perito Merino glacier. El Calafate is a dump and certainly not even worth the taxi fare to get there. Perito Merino glacier is truly wonderful. Hotel good but noisy when American groups staying there. Corridors have stone floors and American visitors trundling their wheeled suitcases along the corridor early in the morning... More

Spending 4 nights at this truly wonderful place in the Argentinian pampa was one of the highlights of our 4-week trip through Argentina.
