    Exceptional 10.0
    Bucket list launch point
    I loved this motel. It was the nicest of the 8 we stayed in during our stay in South America. The hotel had a great restaurant, massage centre and pool. Staff were all helpful and informative. Location was close enough to town but far enough away to have an unobscured view of the snow capped mountains we came to see. If I could spend two weeks there I would have been happy for that entire time.

    Good 6.0
    Average experience
    Great variety in breakfast. Good location. Staff were polite but not very helpful. Key card to rooms didn’t work. Rooms were very warm with no way to control temperature.

    Good 6.0
    Ok hotel about 15 mins walk to town centre
    The hotel is very dated. However, it was clean and the room we stayed in was very big. The pool and gym were also very dated (and the pool was too hot to stay in for a long time). Restaurnant and breakfast only average.

    Great quiet hotel with style and charm.
    The Unique Luxury Patagonia is a charming two storey hotel that is close enough to walk to most of the El Calafate attraction and far enough away to maintain some seclusion. The staff were always polite and helpful and the restaurant was surprisingly good with very reasonable prices. We ate at the restaurant for dinner on our third day and wished we had done so sooner. The food was great and competitive with the prices in town. Breakfast was from 6 - 10 and although the selection did not change, it was varied enough that we ate differently on each of our four days.
    Peter, au3 night family trip
    Good 6.0
    Nice hotel but 20 minute walk to town
    Lovely stylish hotel, our bathroom was small, barley could get 2 people inside. Breakfast was the same 3 days in a row. The walk into town took us 20 minutes, which was ok at the beginning of the day, at the end of the day seemed longer. A safe place to visit.

    Would definitely stay there again
    Well located hotel, staff were efficient, bed was comfy and bathroom was clean. All you can really ask for a very reasonably priced hotel and you spend most of your time exploring the outdoors

    It’s located in a nice, quiet part of town with nice views. The rooms are nice and spacious. The restaurant has very good food

    Nice hotel in El Calafate
    This is a very nice hotel in El Calafate. It is just off the main road, but the short route to the hotel is a gravel road. The hotel is also about a mile from downtown, so it is inconvenient if you want to walk to downtown and back. The breakfast was very good with hot and cold options. The dinner is okay, and I would recommend many of the restaurants downtown for dinner.

    We had three rooms. All the bathtubs had patching. They need to change the bathtubs for the price they are charging for those rooms.
