It would be hard to contradict my fellow travelers who have stayed at the Fuerte. The location overlooking Lago Argentino is absolutely gorgeous and very homey with clean rooms. It is outside of the main town and though commuting by foot is doable (around 20-25 minutes), the wind can be rather challenging; however, if you are dressed in layers and a glutton for chilly walks, there is nothing like a brisk jaunt to the center of town mid-afternoon. Breakfast is very standard with one exception--the scrambled eggs/omelette is freshly prepared for you while you sip your morning java. incidentally, having a rental car can be extremely helpful if you intend to explore the surrounding area on your own.
FYI for credit card users: For dinner and/or drinks at the hotel, there is a 10% surcharge added to the bill.
Our overall opinion --- a double hi-5!!!
