Hi, Patricio and Patty
Firstly, I’m so sorry that it has taken me so long to write to you! We had a wonderful trip in Argentina and would love to come back again some day. As promised, here is some general feedback on the various aspects of our trip in February…...
Feedback for Say Hueque: Patricio, we really appreciated the quick responses to our queries when we were in the early stages of booking the holiday. We had no idea where to go or what to see, so your suggestions were really helpful. We also appreciated that you took notice of the types on hotels we were interested in staying in and also the activities that we were keen on. You were happy to make changes and to listen to our suggestions and you also worked to keep it within a reasonable budget. All in all, we were really delighted with the service that we received from you. Thanks!
Our favourite part of the trip was the week we spent in the North West driving ourselves. We would definitely like to do that again and spend more time in some of the villages and towns.
Feedback and thoughts on the various activities and places we stayed and visited: I have written reviews on TripAdvisor for most of them, you can find me under the username “fractal” if you’d like to read them
We liked all the hotels we stayed in. Each one was just right for its location and suited us perfectly. If we had to pick, probably our two favourites were Hacienda de Molinos in Molinos and Finca Adalgisa in Chacras de Coria.
Hacienda de Molinos had great charm and the food was excellent. We loved our room and would have liked to have spent a couple of days there. We had the best room at Finca Adalgisa….number 17, which has a very big terrace. The service was excellent and the breakfasts really good. We loved the summer house and the fact that we could go every evening for a glass of Malbec and a snack. The BoBo Hotel was also great….although I preferred our room when we first arrived, the room they gave us on our one night on our way out of Argentina at the end of the stay was much smaller and also very noisy. We liked it’s location in the city; it was great to walk around Palermo. The Vinas de Cafayate had great views and the room was nice. The food in their restaurant was also quite good. La Aldea de la Selva in Iguazu had the best breakfasts on our trip. The lodge was interesting and the room big, although it didn’t have much character. The staff were helpful with making restaurant suggestions and reservations. The Design Suites Hotel in Salta was great….our room on our first couple of nights was nicer than the room we had when we returned….the first room had a better view. The breakfasts were a little boring.
La Comarca in Purmamarca was really nice. It had great views of the mountains and was spacious.
Esplendor Calafate was also very good. Our room was really big and had a great view. The decor was interesting and the bathroom was lovely.
One thing we did notice…..Argentina is a wine country and yet only one or two of the hotels had wine glasses in the rooms….we had to ask!!
The agents on the ground were mostly very good.
