The staff were so helpful, friendly & attentive. Loved the views over the Laguna Nimez, & lake it made it seem so tranquil & peaceful. Breakfast was a decent range of food & fresh baked cakes/muffins. Loved the afternoon tea sitting watching the view out over the Laguna & Lake. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay & felt so homely & welcoming.

Initial impressions were that it was a bit far out of town but this was down to the obscure route taken by the driver. The hosteria is about 100m from the shore of the lake and a couple of minutes from the Nimez bird sanctuary. There is a comfortable sitting area on the ground floor just off reception. The dining...

This hotel was not where we expected it to be and although we weren't as close to town as expected (10 min walk) it was great, had lovely view across the lake. The room itself was reasonably small as was the bathroom. However, this didn't matter at all. They have the friendliest staff I have ever come across in a...

My mother and I stayed at Cauquenes de Nimez for 3 nights when we were visiting the Perito Moreno glacier. The building is very quaint and rooms, although very small, have everything you need. There are comfortable communal areas downstairs, and also the upstairs restaurant, which has a nice view over the lake and the lagoon nature reserve. As a...

I've not had such caring and attentive service in many years of travelling. The owners and all the staff really wanted to look after me and make sure I had a great time (I did)! The home-cooked food in the evening was an unexpected treat. If I ever get back to this part of the world I would not hesitate...

We stayed here as part of our 6 day tour of patagonia. It is an excellent hotel with very friendly staff and very attentive service. The rooms were small but clean. The view from the dining room is amazing. It is a little out of the way, but the view is worth it. Their breakfast in the morning is nice....

This is an incredible lodge, due mainly to the unfaltering attentiveness the owners and staff provide. I'm not sure what previous people were talking about with cleanliness as we stayed in 2 rooms over the duration of our stay and both were extremely clean (and I am amazingly picky with this-I can smell a musty sheet a mile away). If...

I stayed in Calafate in March 2012 whilst visiting the Glaciers and El Chalten. Gabriel doesn't seem to sleep and is always present to give you friendly advice to make the most of your stay.
