Client comments and reviews
Such a marvellous place to be and our premium room was brilliant. Everything about this place was quality - the food, wine, location, ambience, the building, the views, the room and the waiting staff. An extraordinary place and again would highly recommend. - RM (January 2017)
Eolo has been magnificent, we have had such a good time. I'm going to have to be dragged out tomorrow with my finger nails raking the ground! - LM (January 2017)
Eolo was just great - staff, food and general atmosphere. The glacier was very impressive too. - ME (March 2012)
Eolo was stunning - probably best hotel we have ever stayed in - and we have been to a lot of places! It was worth every penny and the staff could not do enough to help you. Nothing was a problem, one day I did not like food on the menu and they asked if they could just cook me a steak - they did and it was the best steak of the whole trip!! Glacier awesome too. - DL (November 2011)
Estancia Eolo was the highlight of our trip. After all the stresses of travelling, the peaceful atmosphere and Zen-like quality of the place instantly soothed us. The staff even walk around in moccasins so that they do not make any noise! The surrounding landscape was amazing and the food and service were wonderful. Thank you for sending us there. - JL (November 2010)
Eolo would win for level of care and attention to detail. The menu of teas to select from and their subsequent arrival in a large teapot with cookies deserves special mention - sadly we weren't there long enough for me to try all the options!

This was a fabulous hotel with great food. The Perito Moreno was great but very crowded (as expected!) and the second day we spent hiking the grounds, horse riding and watching condors which was very nice. - TM (March 2008)
We loved the accommodation provided by the Eolo Estancia which was in a fabulous setting and with wonderful staff and very high standards of everything. - JJ (February 2008)
