Amazing location with great view of the mountains and easy access from the road. The best breakfasts in town! Thanks to the talent of the owners: Ketty and Horacio, who also have shown exquisite taste in the architecture and artistic decoration of the hotel. They both made us feel like home and gave truly smart recomendations regarding trekking, horsing and...

The front porch has comfortable seating chairs in the sun and in the shade. Horacio and Kitty offer up delicious breakfast treats along with fruit, fresh squeezed juice, home made yoghurt,...

I fully agree with prior reviewers' summaries of the lovely accommodation, large comfortable bed and room, and startling views both day and night. But what made our stay outstanding was the hospitality of Kitty and Horacio. Helpful, friendly and fun people who welcomed us into their "home." Horacio, breakfast chef extraordinaire, creates luscious almost healthy muffins and scones. And the...

My adult daughter met a couple when she was backpacking in the mountains of Chile who couldn't stop talking about how fantastic their stay at Buena Vida had been. So we readjusted our itinerary and were able to spend one night there: we wish it had been more. Note to readers with fantasies of owning a B&B: this spectacular place...

I spent a leisure weekend there and had a wonderful time. Horatio and Kitty are splendid hosts. I will return surely for a special Patagonian holyday. The inn has been built with care and showing the work by local and Californian artist. Paintings, glass pieces, furniture……

As others have said, the breakfast is fantastic, it is something different each day, and it is made from fresh local products. The rooms are large, and there is lot of light,...

Buena Vida Social Club is a friendly, comfortable B&B in a beautiful spot on the outskirts of El Bolson.  It is situated up a hill a few kilometres from town - we walked in once going downhill but walking back would be a bit of a climb. The owners Horacio and Kitty are incredibly friendly and helpful and made us...

Our hosts Kitty and Horacio looked after our every need. From delicious breakfasts prepared from fresh local ingredients and exquisitely presented, to taxi bookings and information on local attractions, everything was offered. The house has a large deck perfect for relaxing and taking in the view across the valley to the mountains and is surrounded by trees. Wifi is excellent.

This B&B is up a hill on a ripio road. We enjoyed the adventure of getting lost and finding our way. The place itself is decorated very tastefully especially in the downstairs living and dining area. The room was comfortable as was the bed. But the most memorable thing about the place was the breakfast. Loved it, loved it, loved...
