All the staff here were wonderful. In particular, we would point out Bruno who had a great personality. We liked him so much I had to take a picture of him and one of his name tag so I could remember to applaud him in our review. Our room was wonderful - very large room with a big balcony to enjoy the view which during our time (one night) here displayed beautiful thunder clouds along with the water and the mountains. We grabbed a bottle of wine and just enjoyed the beauty of our surroundings. Later, we ordered in a pizza (the place - Pistach -suggested by the front desk) and it was excellent!! The property also has a large indoor “hot tub swimming pool” and an outdoor swimming pool. We took advantage of both. Breakfast at the El Faro was nice and we snagged a good table to enjoy the view of the water, the mountains and the clouds. The buffet area included scrambled eggs, croissants, ham, bread, cheese, fruits, sweets, and juices like orange and peach. After breakfast, I was in the room packing while my husband was checking us out. I turned to notice a beautiful rainbow and grabbed my camera to take photos. I then went straight to the front desk to tell my husband so he could see. (That is when I met Bruno who was checking us out.). So all three of us stood in awe of the rainbow. I also took note of the art in the reception area and took photos. There was an owl, a fish and a bird which were made from reclaimed wood and recycled items. (Later that day, we stumbled upon the store in town that makes this art and got to meet the artist himself, Marcelo. How exciting is that??)

What was consistent about our stay here was just how many spots a boutique hotel can provide for sitting and relaxing, perhaps with a glass of wine. The hotel is built so that everything faces the lake and mountains, which are gorgeous day and night - the latter especially with a bright moon or sunset. We enjoyed these views from the pool, the swing on our room's terrace, the walkway over the water, our open-air room (thanks to 3 big sliding doors), and the upper floor "lighthouse." It's still a boutique hotel so don't let this description give the wrong impression. It's a boutique hotel with plenty of places to enjoy.

The view is wonderful, the location right on the lake. Food is adequate, with a continental breakfast. The hotel has many kinks to iron out. The original room i was given was in the basement and had no air conditioner. Then I was placed in a smaller room that was dark as the windows were covered ( see picture). i returned from my group early to find out the spa treatment was canceled last minute. To top it off, no recompense was offered.

Dear Mr Robert Glassman, Thank you so much for your comments about our privileged views and our regional breakfast. About your comment, the room that you are reffering is our Suit Playa, one of the biggest rooms in the hotel, with private terrace and direct access to the lake. As you could check, the room has air conditioner and it's working correctly. The room change was demanded by you. The only room available was the one you show and has blackouts over the windows, same all rooms in the hotel. We keep them closed to avoid the sun overheat the room. You only had to open them to enjoy the landscape. With regard to the facial massage, the massagist had to cancel at last minute due a personal problem. The relaxing massage was given as it was programmed. Our massagist are outsourced. Best regards, Horacio LLoret Manager

Really enjoyed El Faro! Right on the lake, a few kilometers out of town, El Faro offers great views and super comfortable amenities. The common space has great windows and comfortable seating, so you can enjoy the views regardless of the temperatures outside. The driveway down to the property will remind you of Lo bard Street in San Francisco, if you have ever driven it. There is a pool, an indoor hot tub with great windows. Virtually every space takes advantage of the location. Parking was sufficient and everyone we encounter was friendly.

Beautiful spot, friendly staff, delicious breakfasts. The giant hot tub was perfect for relaxation after long days of hiking. The heated pool was a nice surprise. The common area was pleasant, enjoyable board games available.
