The hotel Las Balsas is a luxury retreat facing the still mirror waters of the lake, far from the beaten tracks of turistic Patagonia (not easy to find). The views are incredible and changing all the time with the light. It is a pure beauty. The hotel itself is a boutique full of charm and atmosphere, with wood everywhere and... More

Just got back from Patagonia where I stayed at Las Balsas. Loved this hotel. My room upstairs and at the end of the house, was huge! I thought I had a suite...but they told me know. It was just the luck of the draw. One problem was that the keys would not work in the door. Every time I had... More

Las Balsas is truly an amazing place. It is a warm and beautiful place with simply amazing staff and service. We loved the food and the great wine recommendations, and what can I say about the spa and massages... Out of this world. If you are going to the lakes region, don't miss this place!

One could say that las Balsas is a small quiet location away from the city with small rooms and no TV...but that would not only be an incomplete description of the hotel...but also a very unfair one. So let me tell you what we thought of it; as a frame of reference my wife and I travel extensively and very... More

Las Balsas is a beautiful lakeside house. The pool and spa are wonderful, the staff are kind and outgoing, the living room and bar are cozy and stylish, and the breakfasts are tasty and generous. Mariela in the spa has magic hands, and Laura on breakfast duty is affable, efficient, and a nice way to start the morning. The lake... More

No doubt about it the location is fantastic : on the lake shore with beautiful grounds well attended. The rooms seem to me a little too small in spite of the the fantastic view And the bathrooms should be bigger and modernized. Breakfasts are perfect in every respect. The indoor/outdoor swimming pool is more than enjoyable. If you dine there... More

This is a lovely property with great views over the lake. The food and wine were generally very good, especially breakfast which was excellent. All the staff were very engaging and helpful, particularly the concierge. No complaints there. We had one problem however, which has marked them down a star: They were repainting the outside of the building and that... More

We have been hearing about Las Balsas for quite some time, and finally got to experience the peace and beauty of the place. Secluded in a small bay of the Lake (which one?) it has a warm and cozy feeling in a magnificent setting, with world class cuisine and a welcoming and professional staff.

Have been there some years ago. Certainly one of the most beautiful setted hotels I've ever visited. Right on the lake, a great experience for those who want to spend a romantic lakeside vacation. The restaurant is small and cosy, but with a great cusine.
