How to Get There
After a day of driving and winery visiting it was awesome to spend the late afternoon lounging in the pool area. The grounds and setting are stunning. Our room too was beautiful—tastefully decorated, spacious and had a really comfortable bed. We noticed some minor wear and tear in the paint, especially in the bathroom that should probably be addressed fairly soon. The reception staff were efficient but we found some of them to be a bit standoffish. Our dinner in the dining room was good but it was weird that we were the only ones there. When we checked in we were told we had to select an early or late seating. We would have preferred something in the middle and clearly this would not have been an issue. Not a big deal, and we had a lovely time, but these little things prevented me giving an excellent rating.
The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are big, and everything has been decorated with excellent taste.
The service is impeccable and the food is to die for.
The patio area is used to serve lunch, but it is also a good place to relax after riding or trekking the montains.
I’ve been traveling in South America for about two months now, and Patios de Cafayate is my favorite stay so far.
For the incredible experience, the price is a great value. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, with big fluffy down pillows. The room is large, with windows overlooking the garden, and a large bathroom (with a clean, comfy tub!).
The location itself is stunning, on one of the best winery properties in town. Do the wine tour, and try the Old Vine wines at the restaurant! Also make sure to attend the free champagne hour in the lobby. There are horses, a friendly dog, and even a llama named Boris on the property.
Finally, the people. The staff is all friendly and helpful. My Spanish is not amazing, and they were more than happy to either explain things in English, or help me practice my conversations and vocabulary. They make a mean mojito.
The hotel is expansive with many patios (hence the name) you may wander through. Even when full, you feel like you are the only one in the place. The restaurant is wonderful and the Esteco Vinyards wine selection is beautiful. The service and staff are super friendly and accommodating and the restaurant, dining on the patio in the shadow of the mountains, is wonderful. There is some minor wear and tear in the hotel, but for me it adds to the character - expecting fussy perfect will always disappoint, imho.
This was comfortably the best hotel we stayed in during a 3 week trip around Argentina and Chile.
The building, the grounds and the natural setting are all absolutely stunning. The pool area outside is spectacular. The rooms are huge and beautiful. It’s also part of the same operation as the adjoining El Esteco winery.
The staff were friendly and helpful and the complementary sparkling wine in the evenings from 19:30 (from next door of course) is a very nice touch. The breakfast was a bit average if I’m being picky, but it’s a minor issue.
On the first night of our 2 night stay we ate in the hotel restaurant. Starters were very good and we had a nice bottle of old vines wine from El Esteco. My main course (steak) was fine, though not special, but my wife’s pasta main was not good. The dish was absolutely loaded with double cream (which wasn’t even listed as an ingredient in the description) and the beef strips were very tough (over-cooked).
We still enjoyed our evening though and given we’d already had starters and weren’t super-hungry we had enough food by eating all of mine and some of her dish. We mentioned this at the end (they noticed that not much of the pasta had been consumed) and I was extremely impressed with how it was handled. Firstly an apology from the waiter, and then the same from the manager, who came over to our table. She noted the issue for feedback to the kitchen and said that they would not charge for the dish. Very professionally handled and problem solved. We left happy.
The next day, after returning from a morning of wine tasting, we found a bottle of cabernet sauvignon waiting for us in our room with a note apologising (again) for the poor pasta dish. He ‘problem’, such as it was, had already been solved to our satisfaction the night before. So this was really above and beyond. We appreciate the kind gesture and would like to note how well this reflects on all of the hotel staff (both in and out of the restaurant).
This is the kind of service that you only get from a truly high-class establishment and one that cares about its customers.
If you’re planning on visiting Cafayate, which you must because it’s beautiful and the drive down from Salta is worth it by itself, then don’t look beyond Patios. Maybe it’s more expensive than some hotels, but if you’re going to splurge on a nice place somewhere in Argentina, this is definitely the place to do it.
