Our guide Pablo was exemplary in his understanding and explanation of the estancias and the significance of the gauchos including the history. The food was extremely tasty and abundant, the place was great and the horse rides enjoyable and musical shows were entertaining. We had a great and...

We had some concerns about our visit to this Estancia as a couple of previous reviewers had implied the lunch time visitors detracted from the authentic experience of staying on a Gaucho ranch. This was not the case at all! We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. The staff are delightful, the rhythm of running the Estancia makes this...

This trip finished off better than it started. We were collected by our driver and with one other couple headed to historical San Antonio which is approx 1 1/2 hours drive. We were shown around the town but we somewhat disappointed that we didn't get any free time at all, as we would like to have soaked up the atmosphere...

What can I say, I absolutely loved this place. My wife and I stayed here with friends. We cannot wait to return with our full family. What makes this place special? The owners treat you like family. Pablo took time to talk with us and make sure all our needs were met. The rooms are high ceilings and very comfortable....

We had a wonderful stay at this "estancia", ranch. The rooms were rustic but comfortable and clean. We had delicious lunches of wonderfully cooked grilled meats with sides. Dinner was delicious with Italian fare. We rode horses, swam and relaxed with many members of the ranch "hands", dogs and cats. We learned of the gaucho life and culture. The ranch...

I am very thankful to the Team at The Brick Hotel to have made this excursion possible and would like to thank Gustavo of Signature Tours , my guide for the day, for his skilful way of preparing a small group of international tourists for the day out at Estancia El Ombu.

This hotel is very difficult to assess, since it has very strong pros and very strong cons. Let's start with the pros: - The staff could not be more helpful and charming - The external parts are very beautiful. The estancia is nested in a nice park, with 2 (small) swimming pools - The horse riding is very enjoyable, with...

Picked up at the hotel in BA by Pablo of Signature Tours for a day in the countryside. Sadly missed by my husband who was ill and insisted I did not miss it. An hour and a half journey to San Antonio de Areco and a special story on the way of the history of the Gauchos and the importance...
