We stayed at Esplendor for three nights including New Year's Eve and had a brilliant time. We were three couples and everyone absolutely loved it. I was surprised to read some of the negative reviews here, because they don't chime with our experience at all. The hotel lobby area is really nicely designed - just like in the pictures. We...

This hotel provides a fairly comfortable room and bed, as well as a comfortable lobby for gathering. It calls itself a boutique hotel, but is not that – it is a large and modern feeling hotel. The room was warm overnight. We shut off the heat, but there is no option for a fan to circulate the air. Opening the...

Had a great stay at Esplendor! The staff were accommodating and helpful, calling our tour companies to speak to them in Spanish. The breakfast is a perfect way to start your day before tours or hikes. The hotel also has the option of a box lunch to take on your hikes/tours which was helpful for us.

Very nice hotel - it surprised us for a 4 star hotel. We recommend it warmly. The rooms are very big and the hotel is modern designed and has a spa and a bar and very friendly. Very good value for money.

The lobby and the rooms are fun/quirky. We had a regular room and a suite as we were a family of five. However, the carpeting in the hallways is the worst that I have ever seen. It makes the entire hotel look like a one-star place. The carpet is old, dirty and was not installed properly. The carpet is not...

The lobby and common areas of this hotel are very stylish, just as they are presented in the pictures, We stayed there for 3 nights in mid November, 2016 and I have to say the area was apparently unseasonably warm (reaching 80 degrees F) which made for great sightseeing, but not good sleeping as there was no way to turn...

We stayed for 3 nights. It was the nicest hotel in El Calafate, with a nice design in the lobby and the bar. The rooms are very uncomfortable! The mattress and the pillow are very bed quality and the curtains are not keeping the light out. I guess that you don't need to sleep when you are in El Calafate😥...

We are a family of 5 and therefore had both a suite and a regular room. I cannot understand the negative reviews. I hesitated booking here because of them, but our travel agent assured me that her clients all loved the hotel. And we certainly did too! The suite was unbelievably beautiful - extremely large with spectacular views! The regular...

We stayed there for two nights in DEC. 2016. Not very clean, the food was cheap quality especially the meat. The room "deluxe" quite small. Again the pictures in the WWW are very well taken.......breakfast low quality. The only highlight was the massage. But again the spa wasn't very clean.

Strange, because while our room was actually quite comfortable and clean, the corridor had worn carpet in need of replacement or at least stretching and cleaning, and the lobby, while attractive at first glance, had shabby rugs and furniture. It did not appear as there was any senior management at the place, and the young staff were indifferent at best....
