Sofitel La Reserva Cardales
What We Love
- Rate includes buffet breakfast
- One-of-a-kind, resort-style complex (there are very few like it in Argentina)
- Out-of-town location means more square feet for your buck than in Buenos Aires
- Unwinding in one of the three pools, spa or bar area
- The size of the property means guests can avoid one another just as easily as they can mingle
- The Argentine capital is an hour away by car or taxi
What To Know
- This is a family-friendly resort
- Too far from Buenos Aires to make daily trips practical
- Avoid the January and February summer high season if you don’t like big crowds around the pools
- Bring what you need with you, as it’s a long way to the nearest pharmacy and stores
- Take particular care if you’re driving here yourself; reckless driving on this route is all too common
- Pair with a city getaway in Buenos Aires
- Free WiFi
- Golf Course
- Kids Club
- Parking On Site

How to Get There
I was at this hotel for a work seminar, and in short, what worked well: location is ace, rooms are spacious, and the breakfast was second to none
on what could improve: the rooms are dated, especially the bathroom. I had a nice large spa bath but it looked really tatty.
I had a very large balcony but between the motorway noise and the mosquitoes I did not use it extensively
Most of the staff don't speak English or not fluently, and I was lead to believe that there was no ATM in the hotel whereas I found one by happenstance near the spa.
I would not go there for a golf week end or for a holiday but for a work event it was ok
Spent 3 days during a business event, location is nice, the place is gorgeous. Nice construction reflecting well the Sofitel style but slightly under maintained, starting to show some aging elements. Nice people, overall nice experience, a bit of approximation in the service level for a Sofitel. Nevertheless a place to be recommended.
I just recently spend my Birthday at the Hotel. I had been there several times for the Day Spa, but not in the last 2 years. First off, the staff was always very friendly and I so much appreciated the upgrade of a room with view to the Lagoon. The room was very lovely, spacious and nicely furnished with a great terrace.
The setting of the Hotel is very very beautiful.
The Breakfast buffet was very good with enough to choose from.
Now I come to the reason, why I did not give my visit 5 stars. As I had been there several times before I was surprised that the Hotel stay did not include all the Spa area, but only a very small part, where there where 2 small saunas, NO steam room and a small Hot tub/Jacuzzi, which honestly was in poor shape and had mold around the edges and the Handrail to get in was almost falling over due to missing screws. Also the warm pool area inside/outside needs some maintenance, likewise ALL the inside lounge chairs had dirty covers and where very outdated.
And another comment. They used Styrofoam cups to get your water. Please if you have any consideration for this planet do not use them, as they never recycle.
The outside area was fabulous and the lunch by the pool side also very good and abundant. We where lucky to have a perfect day to spend by this pool.
Once again we still had a fabulous time and more then critisism I want to give it as constructive feedback
Not In my worst nightmares I had an experience as much as terrible as we had last weekend in Sofitel La Reserva Cardales.
They pretend to be a 5 stars hotel but facilities needs maintenance, room smells smoky when we checked in, room floor was dirty, old towels, I lost 25 minutes in check in process when I had already checked in online.
But worst part was Food services. We had to wait more than an hour to complete 3 Nuggets with fries order (they came with two and rest one more than hour later!!!!). Of course I claimed 3 times and last time I received a very bad and disrespectful treatment!
In the other hand (ironically) we order 2 burgers that came one and a half hour later, worst burger ever (cold dry meet, boiled egg -yes, boiled!-, cold fries, disgusting!)
Sincerely a lot to improve to be a 3 star hotel, ups sorry they said 5 (Lol) 😡😡😡😢😢😢
The resort is really beautiful and well maintained. I booked a Suite Prestige (1070 sq ft / 500 usd by night) but with a LedTV 20 inchs with NO HD in the main room ?? The rest of the suite was just ok.
But the nigthmare starts with the service. A lot of children full of good intentions and no knowledge to deliver hotel services and I`m talking a 3* hotel ...imagine this pretended 5*.
The reception is the worst, where Daniel (a kind of supervisor) stands out for his embarrassment.
I used the Bernabe Bar, they forgot a part of my order (two items....a drink and a toasted sandwich...when I claimed for the sandwich so they quickly heated the sandwich in a microwave! )
I also used the restaurant "La Butaca". It was, literally, half empty. When I came in, the receptionist told me I should wait to sit down because there were not enough staff to assist us (...we were three...). I required to sit down but unfortunately the receptionist was right because our dinner took an hour and was poor.
Perhaps a good idea is to take the cheapeast room available and enjoy the facilities with no pretention of human or meal services. Perhaps ....just perhaps.
