When Do You Want To Go?

Hotel set on a dramatic cliff, with its own Lighthouse dating from 1905 that is still used today

The main feature of Faro Punta Delgada is the hotel's landmark lighthouse. Located at a strategic point high up on a cliff right on the edge of the coast, the lighthouse protects ships from sandbars in the sea that would be dangerous for sailors navigating the area's stretch of the Atlantic Ocean.

The lighthouse was first lit on the 1st May 1905 and today the lighthouse beam still shines at night and through the occasional fog. The building captures the spirit of the pioneers from the Argentine Army who first drifted along these lands filled with passion and adventure.

The buildings around the lighthouse were formerly the main post office of Correo Argentino and the Argentine Navy's casino. Today it is an exclusive hotel where guests can enjoy comfort in a naturally wild environment.

The hotel has 27 warmly decorated guestrooms, a pub, a restaurant and a boutique. The hotel really focuses on being connected to the natural environment that surrounds it and big windows offer superb views from all parts of the hotel.

The beach near to the hotel houses a colony of elephant seals. Peninsula Valdés is the only continental post of elephant seals in the worldand this magnificent species is quite the spectacle for visitors to the peninsula.

Faro Punta Delgada's restaurant has an intimate and cosy atmoshpere enhanced by natural wood, ochre and white decor. The restaurant features homemade cooking with traditional and original flavours. One of the best dishes is the Patagonian Lamb which is cooked beautifully and served with various accompaniments.

The Lighthouse Pub is a great space to share the day's experiences with fellow travellers on your Argentina holidays. Decorated in a cosy and modest style it has several pieces of history from the region as well as the National Navy. You can play pool, darts, cards and table games.

The hotel's location is convenient to make the most of the sights of Peninsula Valdes including Whale Watching, Dolphin and Killer Whale spotting, trekking and also scuba diving for the very brave!
