We enjoyed our stay at Alta Vista but felt it was unbelievably over-priced. We had been travelling around Argentina for 6 weeks staying in B&Bs which by and large were excellent value as well as being very comfortable with genuine warm and friendly welcomes hosted by people who went out of their way to help you. At the end of...

We were a group of 6 and we had an absolutely amazing stay. Alta Vista is an amazing place. The building is charming with attractive interior and exterior sitting areas including a “hidden garden.” The rooms were attractive and comfortable. The atmosphere was low key and relaxed and that is part of what made the stay so special. Tamara is...

You have no idea what you are about to experience as you pull up to the unassuming building. Not even when you are warmly greeted and ushered into to cozy living room that seems like any other ordinary home. Your awareness of how special Alta Vista is unfolds slowly like opening a package with something extraordinary within. It isn't the...

Loved loved loved this little hotel. It has 7 or 8 rooms, sweetly decorated with lovely fabrics and thoughtful touches to make your stay super-comfortable. They all have their own personality / decor. We stayed in one suite with an attached sitting room, which was lovely. The absolute best thing about this hotel is the managers. Nothing short of superb....

Our stay at the Hosteria Alta Vista was a wonderful addition to our Patagonian experience. We would recommend it to those seeking a friendly and comfortable place to stay with excellent meals.

We had our return visit planned as we drove away. Frederico and Tamara have created such a relaxing home for guests that we had no desire to leave.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Tamara and Federico are the perfect hosts. The inn is immaculately kept, the common spaces are light and airy, the room was very comfortable, and the ambiance is warm and intimate. The food was excellent and we were especially lucky to have arrived the evening that they served asado. We went riding with...

Staying with Tamara and Frederico was like staying with friends...they were both so welcoming and helpful. The horseback riding here was like I had always dreamed of riding....no nose to tail trails here....just open space to ride with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. The meals were served in the pretty, light filled dining area and were delicious. Rooms were...
