The 30-year old hotel / resort consisted of an extensive complex just a short walk from the center of El Calafate. The main lodge was separated from the resort building across the street. We checked in without a hitch, staff were polite and efficient. The bellhop was efficient at getting our luggage to our junior suite. The lobby was of a good size with numerous comfortable couches to relax in. The wood/stone/tile lodge decor was welcoming,
The room was of a spacious for a junior suite. The living room was separated by double doors from the bedroom. The bathroom was a large one with a good-sized whirlpool tub. The bellhop showed us around pointing out the features of the room. Housekeeping was good. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. Posada Los Alamos was in a quiet part of town so street noise was not an issue.
We had lunch at the Bar El Águila on the first floor of the main lodge. Breakfast buffets were at the La Posta restaurant in the sport complex across the street. We felt the choices were pretty good and well-prepared. One morning I attempted to prepare my own "mate" beverage, a tradition drink in the southern part of South America. I clearly had not done it correctly and a waitress quickly came over, took the gourd from my hands, and told me she would show me how to do it properly. We had a light dinner one evening at the upstairs Humus Cocktail Bar where one had a view of part of the golf course. There was a wine cave and it sounds like it might have been fun to sampled wine there.
Part of the attraction of the Posada Los Alamos was the lush grounds, the well-kept grass lawns all shaded by tall trees. In the evenings and early morning we would run into black-faced ibises pecking away at the lawn.
The hotel / resort clearly had a lot to offer in terms of activities. There was a pool table at the Humus Cocktail Bar and there was live music on weekends. There was a large pool apparently at the spa. And there was the golf course. We did not get to enjoy those activities as we were here to explore the region.
Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay. It was very calm and restful after long days out exploring Patagonia.
