We were so pleasantly surprised as to how comfortable this hotel was in this remote area of the globe. Good restaurant, nice spa and a VERY WARM pool.
All staying in Calafate area need to keep in mind that all excursions start between 0700-0900 so there is always traffic in the hotels, regardless of where you stay. With all the outdoors things to do, hopefully, you are one of those getting up early to make it to you excursion.
The hotel is just on the outskirts of town but they have a very convenient shuttle that takes you back & forth. I did not feel inconvenienced by this and we had views of Lago Argentina to boost! The only drawback was that their was a heater but nothing to regulate the temperature to a cooler setting, hence, the 4 rating for comfort. We did go in summer and had to leave the window open to get some ventilation.
Comments about barking dogs that I came across in other reviews are exaggerated. Yes, there are wild dogs and they do get loud at times but it was not incessant and frequent. I've been to Hawaii and the wild chickens and rooster crowing every morning was more frustrating than this. Despite being wild, these dogs were not threatening at all wherever we walked. This experience comes with the territory.

Lovely boutique appartments overlooking Lake Argentina. The staff will make sure your stay is special and you make the most of your stay in this incredibly beautifull part of the world. We loved El Calafate and we loved this hotel. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip and one we'll never forget.

The room assigned us did not have a lake view, so we asked to be changed. Leo, the receptionist, immediately upgraded us at no additional charge to a corner suite, with a separate living room, that had a spectacular view! The staff were all extremely helpful. The only drawback was the distance to town, 6 km away, but it is a delightful walk along the banks of the lake to town. Plus the hotel has a shuttle every hour from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

My stay at La Cantera was great. The staff were great and helped me out a lot with bookings. My room was ready when I arrived even though I arrived a little earlier than check in time and I definitely felt welcome throughout my stay. One thing for people to be aware of is that the rooms are very warm but open up the windows and it cools down quick enough.
