Right on the Lake
Stayed here twice recently. Loved all the light and the views of the lake. Quick ride outside town, easy if you have a car.

Beautiful Views
Beautiful views of Lake Argentino. About a 7-10 minute drive to town. Easy if you have a car. Front desk was very helpful. Eat at La Tableta on their recommendation. Splurge for the Full Suite. It was worth it.

Good location
Location on Argentina lake is impeccable. Restaurant is very high quality. Service at the front desk is so-so - very little help. The only serious problem is absence of air-conditioning in our room - it was simply too hot because they continued heating the floor.

Design Hotel El Calafate
The hotel has great bones but on inspection is very much neglected When new it must have been outstanding but clearly it needs major upgrades The WiFi is nonexistent and there is an overall shabby quality in the hotel Hot water is iffy and the staff indifferent We as travel professionals found the property disappointing at every level especially the indifferent staff.

Loved it. Loved the views
Loved the hotel. Amazing views. Worth booking the lake view rooms. 5-10 min drive to town. They have a few shuttles, but if you don't make it, its just a $6 USD taxi. Would definitely stay here again, vs. in town.
