2/5

On approaching the hotel we had good first impressions, however once checked in we were left disappointed. The room and hotel in general are in need of some updating and maintenance, as pretty much everything seemed to be worn to the point that you wouldnt expect for a hotel. The check in process was also long and drawn out. We stayed in another hotel of the same bracket earlier on in our trip also in calafate, which was far superior in every way

WiFi too slow and undependable. Otherwise facilities were great.
