"As good as a mini Switzerland gets"

To be truthful, my experience in this hotel exceeded my expectations. The service is amazing, which is hard to find in Argentina. We caught a fish on a boat ride they organized for us, 15 hours before departure, and the kitchen was happy to cook it, it was delicious. As far as the food goes, it is delicious. The only thing I have to gripe about is the room color which was a bright green, it doesn't bother me personally but I feel like it does not go with the rest of the hotels vibe. The spa is great, Mariela has strong hand and got me stress free in no time. The staff is always willing to help and they are incredibly nice. All in all a fantastic and unforgettable experience.
"Incredible property in the heart of Patagonia"

My wife and I stayed at Las Balsas while on our honeymoon and could not have been happier. We were welcomed into the hotel and told to make ourselves at home, and that's truly what this place did. World class service paired with some of the best food we had on our trip, extremely well-appointed rooms, free wifi and spectacular views make this place THE destination if you're traveling near Bariloche. Although about an hour from the airport and city of Bariloche, Las Balsas is located at the north end of the lake about 5 minutes from a cute town called Villa La Angostura. We had the best massages of our life, some of the best food of our life, and the views of a lifetime. The service was impeccable, and Nacho, one of the main concierges, gave us excellent recommendations on things to do and where to go. Of all the places we stayed at during our two week honeymoon in Chile and Argentina, this was far and away the best place (and we stayed at some other incredible properties). Llao Llao is another hotel some would compare to this; although we didn't stay at Llao Llao, we did visit it and we never would have had the same customized, personal experience there that we did at Las Balsas. If you want to stay at a huge, exquisite resort, Llao Llao may be for you; if you prefer equally impressive amenities with a far more personal touch, Las Balsas is for you. If we ever get the chance to come back to Bariloche, there is no other choice than Las Balsas for us.

Gorgeous, small property in northern Patagonia. We flew into Bariloches from Buenos Aires and drove for about 45-60 minutes to the hotel. The town of Villa La Angostura is small but has a few shops and restaurants. Las Balsas is secluded and quiet. The rooms are small and comfortable. Front desk, spa and food first class. The hotel is situated lake-front and the view across the lake towards the mountains is classic.
"Coup de coeur"

A Little Bit of Heaven in Patagonia. Serene hidden vintage interior design to die for and perfect linen. Perfectly located. It invites to relax and enjoy life, so "relais &chateaux" The panorama pool in the patagonian style architected spa with its view on Nahuel Huapi framed by the Andes is priceless. What rounds it all up is the staff. So calm, unpretentious, warm and welcoming, skilled and professional. They give a soul to this house and make you feel comfortable from the moment you step in the door till your departure. I left this hotel craving for more.

This property is just beautiful. The accommodations comfortable. The staff incredibly friendly and accommodating. I do believe that out of a week in Bariloche, this place served three of our best meals and topped the Llao Llao gourmet resto. Also after staying at both places, I'm sure the next visit will be entirely in the more natural and quaint and personable Las Balsas. Only a couple of recommendations for the hotel and travelers. The floors are wood and quite squeaky. We had no problems in the end room (a suite) except getting up in the middle of the night. For the hotel, please remove the chemical air freshners from the spa and bathrooms. They cause sensitivities in many people and are so strong that you smell them throughout your site. Where your air is so clean and beautiful, why not use fresh natural deodorizers in harmony with this? Especially in the spa. Prices especially for the amazing food were very palatable. The whole staff speaks English and at least one speaks French. A must stay if going into this area of Patagonia. We took our kids 4-6 and they were graciously received and in heaven exploring over the course of our three day stay.

The setting for this hotel is outstanding. The rooms are nice and clean but slightly rustic .The amenities were not replaced after you used them so over our 3 nights there we had to reuse the shower cap and we ran out of tissue paper. The food was boring and we had the same menu throughout our stay. Its supposed to be a gourmet restaurant!!!!

Las Balsas was a wonderful place to stay in Villa la Angostura--slightly difficult to find but just keep an eye out for signs when driving down the main road into town. We couldn't have asked for a better staff--they were willing to help you with anything you needed whether it be to come up with itineraries, book restaurant reservations, confirm flights, etc. The food and wine at the restaurant in the hotel was delicious--one of the nights we were able to participate in a wine tasting and pairing done by Rutini which was quite fun. The hotel has a small beach right outside with stunning views of Nahuel Huapi Lake--the beach is public so there were a decent number of families that would show up in the afternoon though. We enjoyed the spa area as well--the pool is heated and there is a sauna. We did get massages but probably wouldn't get one from here again. Just seemed rushed and the masseuse only did one type of massage and not everything the spa menu listed. Overall, we did love this hotel and would definitely stay here again!!
"Beautiful place to stay in Patagonia!"

We have just returned from a 2 week trip to Argentina. Our last stop was 4 nights in Las Balsas in Villa la Angostura. We felt like we were guests in someone's very lovely & comfortable lake home. This hotel has only 10 or so rooms so very intimate setting. The indoor/outdoor pool was heated & was very welcome after a day of outside activities. We were there in January which is summer vacation for Argentines so many families there - also the Hotel's beach is public so a number of families with dogs & children come to share the beach. We went fly fishing on the Limay River & rode horses on Estancia El Margullo. One day we went into Bariloche & had lunch at Llao Llao Hotel. We were glad that we chose Las Balsas to stay instead of Llao Llao - too big & busy for our taste. Bariloche was a disappointment. The initial alpine architecture of the town has been lost in a sea of nondescript modern high-rises. In January Bariloche is overrun with huge numbers of teenagers on graduation trips. Much traffic & loud teenagers. The weather was very nice during our stay. We had 2 rooms with lake view- one with king bed & one with 2 twin beds which were very nice - no air conditioning but none was needed during our stay. The spa looked very nice but we did not use the spa. We loved staying at Las Balsas. It is a 45 minute walk into the small town of Villa la Angusturo but taxis are available. We ate most of our meals at the hotel & the food was very good. We would recommend this hotel to people who can appreciate a more personal & relaxed environment - we loved it!
"3 days of fun and great lodging in Las Balsas"
We love Las Balsas. This is my 3rd stay there and I always leave feeling I should have stayed an extra day. The service is super professional yet friendly / family like, which is difficult to achieve. The food is a superb mix of local dishes with a modern high end cuisine twist. The wine list is very fairly priced (drunk a Yacochuya 2001 and a Mendel 07 which were both fantastic and reasonably priced). The kids adore the hotel informality, the pier where they can jump into the lake and the beautiful swimming pool, last but not least the friendly dog!!!!... My only issue with it is that regular rooms are a bit noisy, but the spacious suites with their linen duvets more than make up for it!!!!!>...
"We came for lunch. Superb service and excellent lunch"

Recommended by our travel agents. Rather hard to find but well worth it in the end. We hadn't booked but they gave us a lovely table outside beside the lake. The service was superb, top notch and the food absolutely excellent. Not surprised it is a Relais. Would definitely recommend.
