Grace Cafayate is an impressive luxury escape near Salta, Argentina, where no detail is spared. From the well-conceived guestrooms, with their contemporary furnishings and polished wood floors, to the gourmet restaurant and spa, a stay at Grace blends the sporting life with the ultimate in R&R. Situated in Argentina’s showstopping Calchaquí Valley, the hotel benefits from rugged mountain and vineyard views as well as full access to La Estancia de Cafayate, an expansive sporting estate that surrounds the hotel. There, guests can take in a polo match, explore local trails on horseback, play championship-level golf or simply enjoy the health club and Argentine BBQ.
In the Area
There are 1,360 acres to discover, so it’s not necessary to ever step off the property, though restless types will find a wealth of things to do in this stunning corner of South America. The pre-Columbian Quilmes Ruins are a highlight, as are the local wineries; the concierge can assist with arrangements. For guests looking to cap off their visit to Argentina with some serious outdoormsanship, the trekking outfitter Andes Challenge organizes serious multiday hikes and bike tours.
How to Get There
One of the nicest rooms I've stayed in. Location is great - make sure you take a walk in the area to see the gated community and through the woodlands. Breakfast was by far the best we had in the 5 hotels we stayed at on our Argentine trip.
Only knock is that the cost of laundry is insultingly expensive - $10 (US) for a pair of socks!! Stay away from needing laundry and you'll be very happy here.
I am a very spoiled person and I happen to know what is expected and offered when in an exclusive resort. I am very sorry to say that GRACE CAFAYATE fell very short of my expectations. The surrounding property is very nice and well taken care. The hotel on the other hand, is rather poorly maintained. The fixtures and fittings are aging in a bad way. Signs of ware and rare are evident all over. The personnel is very polite and willing to help, but lacks training.
We asked for cloth hangers because in our (super villa) closet there were only four. We never received them. We left our room at 10.00 and went back at 17.00 but it wasn’t maid up. We had to ask for the maid to pass. The outside pool is unheated which makes it practically unusable even in summer time. Our fully equipped kitchen was unused and uncleaned for a long time. On the laughing side, at breakfast there is a huge nesspresso machine, used to produce hot water for tea. With a lot of effort you can find out that there is (hidden in a closet) nesspresso capsules but they come with an extra charge. The amount is ridiculous (less than 2 USD) but the concept is at least weird, if not disturbing.
In a nutshell, it is a very nice resort for the price charged, but very far from what we know in Europe as a five star resort.
Everything was perfect. Could not have improved on anything. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room, dining, and setting were very nice. A great place to visit and stay. We wish we had planned a longer stay!
