If you're like us, your time in El Calafate is not going to be spent at your actual hotel. We spent four nights (one of which consisted of 6 hours total in our hotel) in El Calafate, three of them at Kau Yatun. Our room was very comfortable and spacious, although our windows did overlook the very loud fowl in...

A very comfortable hotel for a stay in Calafate. We were just passing through as part of a larger tour. The rooms were comfortable, and the food at the restaurant good. Don't come late to the breakfast buffet, though--when something's gone, there's no more coming. It is a bit of a walk to the main part of town, but certainly...

There are some things to like and other things that make this an average hotel. The "likes." Very isolated away from the traffic noise. Beautiful country setting with sheep and horses wandering the grounds. An easy 15 minute walk to the city center. The restaurant is nice if you want to eat there and next to that is a rather...

On our trip to Argentina during the 2013 South American summer, my husband and I spent 5 days at Kau Yatun. This “hotel de campo” (country hotel) is the renovated main house of the traditional Estancia 25 de Mayo, an attractive ranch (not too wide, but quite long) in the province of Santa Cruz. Kau Yatun is representative of the...

This hotel has a nice setting on the outskirts of El Calafate and is a longish (but doable) walk into town. The reception was nice with most of our party getting a small glass of juice and a bouquet of flowers. Our room was quite spacious and comfortable but was a little dated looking. I loved the towel heater in...

Having traveled throughout Argentina and South America over a 6-month period, we can say that Kau Yatun was, by far, our worst experience. Simply pathetic. First, they took our credit card information by email and then never responded. After several unanswered email messages over a few days we finally called to inquire whether we had a reservation or not. We...

This is a very simple but cosy Hotel. If you chose a regular suite, it will be small, but with a very confortable bed, good shower and great bath amenities. No TV but with internet in the rooms. Don't miss the visit to Estancia 25 de Mayo, the farm where the hotel is located. Enjoy the guided visit with Mr....

Hotel Kau Yatun is a strange mix of things.Is it a great hotel or just average? El Calafate is a remote town and looks like it. The Hotel was once an Estancia and looks like it. The surrounds are lovely and the hotel is on the surface quite nice. It is comfortable enough but it is dated. The excitement of...
