We enjoyed out stay at Oceano. It’s in the very best location for viewing the beach and bay with access to restaurants just a one minute walk.

It’s more like a set of apartments than a hotel. There’s no common area as such, just a reception with wonderful staff. The hotel has it’s own private area on the beach with sun loungers and you can purchase local beer, gifts and Argentinian wine.

We had a lovely room with a balcony and access to the roof, where there are two large sofas and a magnificent view.

Our room consisted of a large bed, kitchenette, seating area, large cupboards and a decent sized bathroom. The decoration is a mixture of minimalism with touches of drift-wood.

I’d recommend staying here to anyone, but there if room for improvement. The shower, taps and towel rail were partially broken. The terrace only had one chair to sit on for two people. The kitchen could do with a few more utensils. These aren’t big things, but for the price I’d expect these things to be taken care of.

We went for Summer vacations in March. We have booked one of the rooms from the 2nd floor, which also has a terrace with comfortable sofas and a table and a splendid direct view of the ocean. The room is plain of light, clean, the beds are comfortable, I loved the pillows, wanna them for my home!!!!. The breakfast is abundant with natural juices, fruits, eggs, cheese, marmalade, and jam. Every night, around 8 pm, they bring to your room fresh from the oven bread for the next day's breakfast. The view is fantastic, the hotel is directly on the beach so you can enjoy it from the first hour in the morning till night. All the people in the hotel are very kind, always ready to help you with recommendations of excursions or places where you have a meal or buying groceries. I am planning to come back to see the whales.

What a beautiful hotel in a magical location! We chose this hotel because of its eco-consciousness and superb location, but it turned out to be the right choice for so many reasons!
Our family group had three rooms, each like a housekeeping apartment, equipped with table and chairs, kitchen and bed). All rooms were spacious, in good condition and had spectacular views. Beds were really comfortable. The rooms all had big balconies overlooking the sandy beach. It was such fun to look down and watch the unique system used at Puerto Piramides to drag the whale watch boats in and out by tractor! We didn't see whales from our balcony because there was a plankton bloom further out in the bay so the whales were further out. But the views were spectacular nonetheless. A good reason to go back another time, as usually there are whales right off the beach.
We had the great pleasure of meeting Sharilyn Amy, one of the co-owners of the hotel, and her passion for making environmentally friendly choices was inspiring, as she told us how she sourced locally and had really worked hard to create a hotel that was eco-friendly. We were also lucky enough to benefit from her great advice for daytrips and local restaurants! Thanks, Sharilyn!
Other things to know:
Breakfast was provided for you to make in your room. For my husband and me there was plentiful cheese, ham, jam, butter, cream cheese, six eggs, a glass carafe of milk and a glass carafe of orange juice, and a fresh loaf of bread which was hung on our doorknob each morning. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and frying pans so you can make fried or boiled eggs.
Parking: there are a few parking spots for the hotel, but if you can't get one, it's easy to park nearby on the road.
Nearby amenities: there are numerous whale watching companies, restaurants and cafes steps away. The clerk at the front desk gave us good advice to find places.

Hotel is new and bright, I had the terrasse room with balcony and shared top terrasse with the suite room. The views of the bay are fantastic and argentinos from 100 km. away come here to swim on weekends, which gives a nice summer holday atmosphaere.
There are no common facilities, so you use the kitchennette, where you can boil supplied eggs and make your own food if you like. you get bread for breakfast in the evening, but by morning it is a bit dry, maybe change to supply bread on the door handle in the morning? The hosts are very friendly and informative and after drives in the national park you get new ideas for where to go and not go the next day, high tide hours at different points etc. The interior is with a lot of pastel colours, fitting well for the country side life.. Power went down for 24 hours while I was there, but it was not a big problem since they have solar energy panels for basic light.

Océano Patagonia is a magical place! I started planning this trip to Peninsula Valdez 6 months ago and kept seeing pictures of Océano. Though my friend and I both have "shiny object syndrome" and checked out many places to stay, we kept coming back to the eco-consciousness of Océano. Their values matched our values: supporting local community, while minimizing travel footprint. We felt like Alice in Wonderland seeing/hearing mother whales with their calves, right from our hotel balcony! The team were warm and welcoming and we felt so at home at Océano. I'm already looking forward to staying there again next year!

This place is just great. Right on the beach with comfy bed, nice sitting area, balcony and they stock the fridge/cupboard with a nice amount of food so you can make your own breakfast. Well located right in the small town of Puerto Piramides, so easily walkable to the few restaurants in town for dinner.

Excellent staff and location. The property is in a prime place, amazing view of the beach with the whales right there.
Also many food options at walking distance.
Homemade bread for breakfast and what’s most important, the hotel is sooo eco friendly.
Special thanks to Karen and Gonzalo from admin desk, as they helped us deciding where and when to go and also were very efficient with the booking process.

We chose this hotel simply due to the location - it's right on the beach, with each room looking out across the sea. We booked one of the 2 rooms on the top floor which had access to the massive private roof terrace (see pic).

Such lovely views, we saw whales from our room which was fantastic!

The room itself was modern and clean, with a comfortable bed. The room rate includes breakfast, which is left in your fridge ready for you each day. It consisted of cheese, sliced meat, milk, eggs, fruit juice and fruit. And each evening as we came home for the day reception gives you a little package of fresh bread. You can then make your own breakfast in the kitchenette in your room, and sit on the balcony to eat in peace.

If I could make one comment the room was always a little too hot, there was air con but it wouldn't go down low enough.

Parking is available but limited, when all the spaces were taken though we just parked on the dirt opposite the hotel which wasn't in anyone's way.

Overall we loved our stay here and would not consider anywhere else if we are ever lucky enough to come back to Puerto Piramides.

I took my two teenagers for 3 days and this hotel fab. The manager helped with everything... when the rain stopped he called every hour to see when the roads were opened. Helped us find the best timing S and tours and organised everything including the car rental.

Quirky as you make your own breakfast with food they leave for you and amazing bread.. perfect for whale watching from our terrace!

We were lucky enough to even see an Orca for about 10 minutes!!

Def rent a car!! Driving super fun and lamas all over the place.

I could practically replicate Buenos Aires foodies review below! This is very much a tale of 2 extremes!

Positives.....
We LOVED the view (though when we first arrived the 'yellow submarine' launch rig completely wrecked it but fortunately this moved) and the whales more than compensate for the downsides. We saw whales practically every time we looked out of the window!!...breaching, tail-slapping, spyholing, the works! Our most amazing whale watching ever!! And we've done a lot!
The staff were friendly and helpful
The room was spacious and, as mentioned, that view!! But be sure to go for a first floor or penthouse room. The ground floor rooms had views blocked or partially blocked by shrubs. I'm not sure why the hotel didn't trim them? The hotel next door had a neatly trimmed hedge.
And there WERE some significant other downsides.....most would be easily remedied by a little bit of maintenance and attention to detail. The room was incredibly hot and, although we asked if it could be turned down, our primary method of controlling the temperature involved opening and closing the door to the balcony.....not exactly eco-friendly!
The decor was 'rustic' but this almost seemed an excuse for neglect as, to be honest, some parts could have used a coat of paint and, in places, it really looked dirty. The kitchen counters in particular were rather unhygienic.
The breakfast was kind of included in the room price but you had to cook/prepare it yourself......all a bit odd really! The eggs, ham and cheese were in the fridge and replenished every day. Fruit, jam etc were provided at the beginning of our stay but not replenished. We were given bread every evening but there was no sign of the brownies or pastries mentioned by other reviewers so that was disappointing.

The wifi didn't work throughout our stay.(3nights) The receptionist explained this by inferring that it was difficult in such an isolated area but we had perfectly good reception in the coffee shop we frequented and in the hotel next door so we were left thinking this was yet another maintenance issue.

To be honest, this isn't really a hotel in the true sense of the word. It's not really a B&B either. It's closest to a self-catering apartment but then they do provide breakfast ingredients and the rooms are serviced every day. So it's an anomaly really. The price is high for what it is. So I think I might be tempted to try the hotel next door if I returned. It would depend on the price differentials.

Response from SharilynA5, Owner at Océano Patagonia
Responded Sep 18, 2019
Hi Mocampion Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us and for your helpful feedback. I am so glad that the whales were super active for your stay! It truly is a blessing to be so near them. I apologize that you felt uncomfortably warm in your room. Our hotel is heated by a geothermal system. This system uses the differential between the ever-changing surface air temperature and the steady, earth temperature many metres below the surface to maintain the buildings temperature. Among the many eco-friendly technologies we have invested in, this system provides hot water, heating and cooling for the building while using ONLY 5% of the energy that a traditional system would require. The goal of the system is to maintain the building at a comfortable 22 degrees Celsius. It has two settings: winter and summer. Given that we are just entering spring in Patagonia, we are a few days away from switching out of winter mode. On the shoulder seasons the correct thing to do is to assist the system by opening windows (also letting in beautiful fresh air from the ocean as well) or close the blinds on the sunny side of the building. This is not a waste of energy. Geothermal systems are closed systems that make the building operate almost like a living body. So just like when you feel too warm and remove a jacket layer, or need to bundle up a bit against the cold, we address temperature variations in this way with this type of system. And we are still learning how best to adjust it during the big fluctuations of temperature that can happen during the change of seasons in the wilds of Patagonia. Thank you for bearing with us while we learn best how to manage this technology. I will ask the staff to be clearer in their explanation of how this system works. Thank you for your comments highlighting key areas requiring maintenance. Our building operations manager arrives today, and on our list of items this season is the annual resealing of countertops and touch ups. The counters are cleaned by our daily maid service, but their sealant requires annual maintenance and I apologize that the sealant in your suite was lacking. Although we maintain them, we do not aggressively trim back the shrubs between our property and the beach as they are part of the reserve, providing shelter to the many bird species that inhabit them, while offering privacy from the activities of the beach for our main floor rooms while still maintaining a view of the ocean. I understand personally and apologies for your frustration with internet. Our wifi has boosters throughout the building to assist its signal, but the challenge we see most often is that internet is brought into the village via antenna relay, which means that its quality varies greatly depending on the number of users at that moment in the village signed on to the internet. It is at times good for a remote area, and at times lacking, and this can fluctuate in a matter of moments or hours depending on the number of active users. It is a frustration for us as well, as a business that runs dependent upon the internet. We are working with other businesses in the area to determine if there is a better way to group our resources and improve the signal. We do try hard to provide great concierge service through our staff on site and to be clear about our offerings in our large, fully equipped suites regarding the freedom to self-cater and enjoy your breakfast with a view to the whales. We appreciate the time you’ve taken to provide feedback. I will be reviewing each detail of your comments with our cleaning and concierge team today. Thank you for helping us continuously improve the quality of our service to our guests.

The daughter of the hotel owner speaks fluent English and knows a lot, but I don't think they are doing any tours. You can join cruises from the beach sailing out (Companies in the "town", which is really tiny), but to see the orcas you don't need to: The orcas ply the east-coast of the peninsula National Park part, so you will see them at Caleta Valdes. Bring a binocular and a camera with a long lens (300-400 mm), since you're not allowed to access the beach. The orcas play all day and get close to the seals, but rarely jumps to the beach and catches one, I didn't see this and I think you need to be lucky. I shaw a family of 6 and at the time (In February) I think the same group was spotted up at Punta Norte, so their life is pretending they don't do anything and just make acrobatics in the water and sometimes they catch a seal! Punta del Gada in the south is closed, nothing to see, just passing through. The roads are tough, 45 Miles/hour is max and the road isn't any better than that, gravel almost all the way from Piramides. So the best way for orcas spotting is by rental car, if the orcas are not at Caleta Valdes go up the coast to Punta Norte, where they have more seals and viewpoints (NP facilities). There is a restaurant on the southern part of Caleta Valdes with trails for extra viewpoints (and venemous snakes!). Nothing else! You might have to wait for hours... When I was there it was not season for whales, but the boats from Piramides could be useful for whale-watching. There are many restaurants in Piramides and fuel station, so remember to fill it up. If you have spare time (Or along the way), you might be able to spot flamingos, that's a dirt road north of the visitor-center in a large cove area. Have a good trip, I need to go when it's whales season :)
