        Tour of Glaciers

        Up hill in not attractive area above the town-but there is not much choice in the town

      • Family with children

        spacious rooms and interior design

        communication of hotelstaff were low level in regards of room availability and wellness facilities (Pool)

      • Couple
        8.8

        really nice hotel, all different rooms and small lodges. Friendly staff, great breakfast, pool and hammocks to relax in!

        It's slightly out of the centre - about a 20min walk.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        The hotel is very nicely and modernly decorated. It is also clean and comfortable.

        I did not like the location of the hotel. It is located relatively far from the town center and up-hill. If one has a rented car, there is no problem in reaching the hotel.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Beautiful design in the common areas and the rooms. Good buffet breakfast. On windy days ask for a leeward room and forget the view.

        Windows whistle in very windy conditions (frequent!) A bit of a walk to/from restaurants and shops.

      • Family with children
        3.8

        Design of the hotel

        Brown water from tap, too hot in rooms and hotel, hotel staff not willing to assist, we called during the day that are flight was delayed and that we wanted to have dinner at 11 pm to celabrate the 18th birthday of our son, we arrived at 10.55 and were told the kitchen closes at 11 pm and that we could only order soup or salad, kids were promised to be able to swim in the pool the last day and were taken out of the pool by other staff, not enough staff

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Very comfort and cosy.

        A little bit far from centrum (5 min. by walking). Restaurant was not very worth of money.

      • Single
        9.2

        After days out on intense nature tours, it was nice to have a comfy place to relax. The staff was very helpful, despite my inability to speak Spanish.

        It's a steep hill up to the hotel.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        The hotel is nicely designed and decorated. The Bar is great, and the bar staff excellent. Breakfast was very nice, and the staff for breakfast helpful

        The front desk was not helpful. The person on staff was not able to answer questions, was often on the phone on private matters and not attending to the guests. Slow and unreliable and not informed to help guests.

      • Single
        7.8

        The design of the lobby. Rooms not that spacious but reasonably sized. Only stayed one night. Staff at front desk very helpefull with indications and airline web check in.

        Expected a bit more from an hotel chain as Esplendor hotels.

      • Couple
        7.0

        the design of the rooms and the hotel.

        the hotel appears on the map as 3 blocks from the central station the only problem is that it is on a hill and the climb in very difficult. every time you want to go to the city you have to go down and climb again.

      • Older travelers
        4.2

        The lobby was magnificent

        Not a great location at all, too far from the main part of town, up a steep hill and not in all that good an area.

      • Family with children
        8.8

        It is a beautiful, clean spa hotel with spacious rooms. They serve a very nice buffet breakfast. The view is beautiful since the hotel is at the top of a hill. You can walk to the town easily.

        During our stay in late May, the only meal served in the restaurant was breakfast. It would have been nice if they served dinner as well. We couldn't regulate the temperature in our rooms and they became too hot. Keeping the window open was difficult because the wind kept the window banging open and closed.
