Amazing staff amazing hotel amazing food (far from the city so food is included in the price). We visited south america and it was the highlight of our trip. Everything was just perfect I wish I could have stayed longer in this paradise

If you think you know panoramic, Eolo will redefine it for you. It is an amazing experience, such beauty. Initially I was hesitate it looked a bit brown and barren to me on the website it, how wrong I was. This is monumental landscape of extraordinary beauty. The sky is vast and the changes of light from sunrise to nightfall...

the location is windy, barren and strangely enchanting. Once inside the hotel is a haven. Large, warm, comfortable rooms with huge windows overlooking the landscape that belies the closenessnd majesty of the glaciers acoach ride away. The staff were lovely and couldnt do more for us. Delicious meals served with elegance and an extensive wine list were much appreciated. A...

We ended up at Eolo purely by accident, and are so pleased that we did!!! We had reserved a year in advance at another hotel that closed for reservations just a couple of weeks before our trip. Eolo was recommended, so that's where we ended up. From the outside, the structure is a tad unimpressive...but everything changes from the moment...

My family and I were at the Eolo for the second time last december 2012 and early january 2013. I would like to say that the attention given to us by Valentin and his staff were more than perfect, including all the waitresses at the restaurant and chambermaids. The views from this hotel are marvellous, no matter from where you...

Can't say enough about our two-night stay at Eolo. The hotel is beautiful, rooms large and comfortable, views and wildlife near the hotel terrific. But the best part of our stay was the gracious service and wam welcome from all of the staff. I definitely recommend staying here for your trip to Perito Merino Glacier, instead of directly in El...

We spent 2 nights at Eolo whilst visiting the Perito Mereno glacier. The setting is breathtaking, the accommodation extremely comfortable and the staff struck just the right balance of friendliness and professionalism. Food also is very good . It was the best hotel we stayed in during a 3 week trip in Argentina and Chile

We stayed here one night at the end of 2 wks in Patagonia. This trip was out together by Geographic Expeditions...who we were fairly pleased with. We arrived later than planned and quite frazzled after a 4 hr drive from Chalten, and having to take a cramped gasoline smelling taxi when our hired driver's windshield shattered. And our taxi driver...

Our stay at Eolo was only 2 nights but we very much enjoyed the visit. The property is out of town about 25 minutes in a ridiculously beautiful setting. While we were there we could walk down and see wild Flamigos in the ponds below the hotel, ride bikes and horseback ride. The meals were delicious with great service. This...

I have been meaning to write this for a long time. We visited Eolo last March. We went to Bariloche as well. This lodge was wonderful. The terrain is not obviously beautiful in that it is a bit like the face of the moon, but then that is what charmed me. It is the Patagonian version of Zen. It is...
