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...

My husband and I visited Estancia El Ombu de Areco in December of 2012, actually, i.e. not 2016, at the urging of a Canadian friend who has spent his winters in Buenos Aires for a few years, Bob Cowan. He booked the bus tickets from Buenos Aires, looked after procuring a cab for us from the bus stop near the...

We arrived at the road into the estancia during a rain storm. The estancia sent an inexperienced driver to take us down 6 km of deeply rutted dirt road. On the way we hit a ditch with 1 metre of water. It took two other vehicles and an hour and a half to get us back on the road and...

The best part was the food and the people. The owners are very gracious and friendly. The people who work there helped us ride the horses, served the food, performed for us...is there anything that they can't do? The food was incredible: three salads, sausage, chicken, beef, drinks, dessert...wow! I especially appreciate that they made something special for my vegetarian...

We spent two nights at El Ombu and wish it could have been more. The accommodations in the main house are charming and most comfortable. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and invite you to unwind and enjoy your time in the countryside. Our hosts, Pablo and Diego, went out of their way to insure our every need was met. Meals...

We spent 4 nights here. It is a real working ranch--- not a 5 star hotel on a ranch or a 5 star want to be but a real true Argentinian Estancia Experience. The ranch has been in the family for at least 4 generations. You can see the original platting maps from the 20's on the wall with the...

You feel as though you are a guest on a family ranch while staying here. We were greeted by one of the owners to make sure we had everything we needed. The scenery and authentic gauchos are impressive. We did not partake in it in any of the activities as we did not have much time, just enjoyed some wine...
