  • On this trip, not visit the reserve already q what we had done on another occasion. We only did the path of snails to first parador. The place is cute, charge entry but you can only visit the outside of the hotel already which is a shame q I would like to know it inside to appreciate furniture, architecture, decor etc, the 40 years. I think that many people think so q I. They should keep that in mind. take a guided tour inside would be fantastic!

  • Very picturesque place, with much history behind. The guide was excellent, which meant that the visit is pleasant and interesting. Perhaps it could be less the cost of entry.

  • There isn't much more q a hotel and a forest. and over the road is half complicated. and they charge entry. It is best to go to another tourist place

  • Vera Beautiful building, but closed for visitation. The only place we can visit are the gardens, which are nicer on the surroundings than on the reserve itself.
  • 😘😍 facinante
  • Beautiful view.
  • Beautiful and quiet place in the middle of the mountain. The hotel was closed in 1979, but its façade, its gardens and its history are really attractive. There are guided tours and admission is $150 or $100 (if resident of Mendoza). Cleaning and maintenance are impeccable. How much with buffet.

  • Very badly, they closed the gate to the 17: 30, a shame how Mendoza... A place so beautiful and so restricted, the time I spent many tourists became. From Mendoza are 60 km to then not show anything because the Lords close, I recommend that they go down a picture of Internet and not go
