My husband and I spent six nights at Yacanto Hotel and Golf Club and were glad to have decided to return after a shorter stay sixteen years ago. It was low season, and there were days when we were the sole guests. We enjoyed the premises, the views, the food and the decor. The entry road, flanked by trees, leads to the main building, dating to 1920, with its verandah overlooking the front lawn, the tennis court (well-kept, well-lit at night), the paddle court and the bowls court. The main building, where we stayed, housed the dining room, reading room, games room and breakfast room on the ground floor, and the guest rooms on the first floor via a wooden staircase. The decor of the guest rooms is early twentieth century, with the original wooden flooring, wardrobes, tables, chairs and chests of drawers. Some of the bathrooms still retain the claw-footed tubs. The only twenty-first century conveniences you can find are LED TV screens and hot-cold air conditioners. But we relished the details like the brass key (no electronic key cards here!) that turned in the polished bronze lock. All the handles of the wardrobes and drawers were bronze. No, there is no in-room safe. No, there is no minibar. No telephone even! But there is wifi for your mobiles or tablets throughout the hotel buildings and grounds. Excellent mattress on the king-sized bed (we stayed in a Superior room). Room was clean and so was the bathroom. Good house-cleaning service in the rooms. Thank you, Edit. The water had to be left running for some minutes, but then you got all the hot water you needed. The towels are thick and white but they are begging for a softener rinse (they're as stiff as cardboard) You must pay half-board (room, breakfast and dinner), and the food served (fixed-menu) did not disappoint. An entree,a bowl of soup, a main course and a dessert, every evening. Carefully planned menus ensure that you do not get the same fare twice in a week. The waitress, María Inés, added her cheerfulness and efficient service to make our dinners more enjoyable. We sat in the huge dining-room, next to the fire-place and she saw to it that there was always wood burning in it, since it was quite cold at night. The breakfast provided is barely adequate, coffee and tea, yoghurt, corn flakes, croissants, bread, toast, ham and cheese. One of the drawbacks of the hotel in the low season is that it is woefully understaffed, so that if we found something lacking we had to go round the place looking for the only staff member available in the morning, who happened to also be the receptionist and the bar attendant. There was a different person in the afternoon. We must stress the good will and charm of Soledad, who was always attentive and would seek us out to see if there was anything we needed. The grounds of the hotel are exceptional. 100-year-old trees, terraced landscapes, irrigation canals, the Yacanto stream which can be crossed by means of a hanging bridge. Sadly, the grounds require a larger staff to see to the maintenance. Loungers were scattered near the swimming pool, covered in dirt and bird droppings, and so was the glass coffee table on the front lawn. It wouldn't hurt to wipe it with a cloth every morning. But it is not my intention to carp, as I understand that the place must be very expensive to run due its size. And besides, I don't want the manager to write a crabby response to this review (as he did with one in Spanish earlier on this year). I wish to highlight the assets this hotel offers, as I experienced them myself: no invasive noises except the birds singing, no roads within the premises, no cars, the hills in the background (lit by the sun as it went down), the tasty fare (chicken, lamb, pork, ravioli, beef Strogonoff, sirloin steak were the main courses), the ambience, the fireplaces in the public rooms. All of this made our stay a very pleasant one. Guests who are golfers may use the golf course, but it is off grounds for non golfers, so we only got to see the entrance, across the hanging bridge. There are two annex buildings with more modern guest rooms, especially planned for families with children. To sum up, I strongly recommend spending at least a night there. The place merits it, as a relic of olden times. You never know when the place might be sold...to a chrome and plastic hotel chain that may provide all the modern amenities but will never equal this hotel's personality and atmosphere.

One of our favourites. The almost 100 years old hotel, built by the English while constructing the railways, shines again. The golf course, 9 holes, short but challenging. The landscape and vegetation, overwhelming. And my special words for the restaurant: 10 out of 10! Old style, home dishes, superb!

Arriving at the Yacanto Hotel is like raveling back in time. The place communicates quality and history in every aspect of its presentation. The property with the 9 holes golf course (we don't play golf), the buidling exterior and interior. Very friendly staff and great food. We enjoyed the medio-pension arrangements (breakfast and dinner included). The wifi services were excellent. We enjoyed it all.

A nice hotel with really good half pension. The food was always good with appetizers and desserts - but all the drinks are extra. The breakfast was not so good for non South Americans as the breakfast culture here is sweets and small breakfasts, but this is how it is here. We had a hellish trip getting here because of other circumstances and these troubles kept on going during our stay. Not because of the staff, they were really helpful and helped us a lot - lifesavers a couple of times! A really nice hotel but the playground and the pool could need some renovation. Would recommend it for travelers that want to relax and just enjoy staying in one place with beautiful surroundings and excellent staff!

The food here is delectable: they range from traditional argentine dishes such as polenta, to pasta, meat pies, soup, and fresh meat. The hotel itself has a very antique charm about it, and the staff are friendly. The place is scenic, and while it is very reserved geographically, come here to get away from the bustling city and experience a peaceful wonderland unto itself!
