Beautiful secluded resort! Friendly, experienced and helpful guides, and attentive staff. The food was exceptional. The hikes were incredible. The room was comfortable, with luxurious bathrobes, toiletries, and a toilet heater. Hot saunas, freshly tempered Jacuzzis (electric generator). Very social if you wanted it to be. Would definitely return!View more
This is a beautiful lodge in a privileged location in a spectacular corner of Argentine Patagonia. (...)
The building is extraordinary, invisibly nestled in the lenga forest on a small hill at the mouth of the Eléctrico Valley. All the beautiful rooms have a spectacular view of the valley to the Marconi glacier. The food is fabulous (visit the outdoor grill and make friends with the kitchen staff), with many options for non-carnivores. The hostel staff is friendly, warm, and professional. Our guides were mostly highly experienced and knowledgeable local guides. The spa was very nice and underused when we were there. (...)
For us, Explora is about the excursions, and they delivered. (...)
We were delighted with our stay here. It was beautiful, luxurious, and the staff were beyond compare. The food was A+++. Very simple and delicious. If you like "fussy nouvelle cuisine" you might be disappointed in food. The bed was the coziest bed we have ever slept in!View more
A fabulous stay. Everything about this place surpassed our expectations. From the location, the food, the staff, the guides and the hikes. Everything was simply amazing!
I love their dedication to the environment and their investment to maintain it. I can’t recommend it enough. I’d love to return and will now check out their other properties too.
The service was outstanding; they would take us everywhere and bring us back in the vans. The service everyone provided was very pleasant, always available for anything you need (…)
The Hotel's location is INCREDIBLE, in the middle of the park, with astounding views from the common areas and the rooms.
And the most important thing, the activities, which is what we went there for. We met with the guides every evening from 18:00 to 20:000 to organize the activities or explorations we wanted to do the next day. They are adapted for each group, day or moment. There are half-day and full-day excursions and with different difficulty levels.
We went with Nair, Gilda and Cecilia. Super professional.
One thing that surprised me was the fire area, where all the guests would go for a glass of wine and a snack and you could watch how they cooked the day's meal. And you got to know the other guests!
My daughter and I spent 4 nights in Explora and fell in love. The entire concept of a healthy and active life with serious respect for the environment is truly unique. Explora seems to be on the cutting edge of a new kind of travel experience.
The activities program is what really makes Explora special. Every evening, each guest sits down with a member of the guide staff to help plan the next day. The weather, physical condition, expedition duration and preferences are considered.
The guide staff are very phenomenal. All of the guides we went hiking with were warm, friendly, informative, enthusiastic about their role and really loved their work. Special thanks to Rocio, a really incredible guide, who did everything possible to ensure my success in climbing up to the Laguna de los Tres. (…)
