La Merced del Alto
Just outside Cachi (South of Salta: Cachi and Cafayate, Argentina)
A large, imposing, mock estancia just outside Cachi built in spacious grounds with commanding views of the distant mountains. There are large communal areas which have been tastefully designed and a formal restaurant. Outside, an impressive patio leads down to a modern pool and a modern annex housing the spa.
There are 14 rooms on two floors with either a mountain or patio view. The rooms are large, modern and comfortable with huge bathrooms though off long, empy, echoing corridors. Best of all is the large suite just above the reception which has views both over the town and the mountains.
Client comments and reviews
The hotel has a great location and is very nice indeed, with a good atmosphere, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. - GB (December 2018)
The setting and building is incredible. The rooms are very nicely done out and the restaurant was fine and very good value. Definitely worth the drive. - CT (April 2013)
What a gem of a place! This was undoubtedly the best place we stayed. The staff were so responsive and all too ready to help. The food of good variety and quality. Both the rooms and public areas are attractive and comfortable. - AD (May 2012)
My wife adored Merced del Alto and could have stayed a week, I really liked it too, but 3 days was perfect for me! Cachi was lovely, exactly what was wanted and the journey from Salta to Cachi, which took 4 hours, was the most stunning drive. - PE (October 2011)
