Club Tapiz in Mendoza, Argentina
The alluring country of Argentina, known for its sultry tango and stunning architecture, stands as an epicenter of Latin American-chic. It is also home to some of the most attractive vineyards in the world, which is why many wine connoisseurs heading to the southern hemisphere find themselves drawn to the Mendoza region, particularly Club Tapiz. A breath-taking historical 1890 estate surrounded by seemingly endless vineyards, Club Tapiz is the place to be if you are searching for the perfect grape and a luxurious experience. Fashioned in the Renaissance style with many original appointments still intact, including vintage pinewood floors, the exclusive hotel makes visitors feel as if they are weekend guests at a spectacular residence. Originally built as the Governors' House, the main building, Casa Zolo, has become an architectural and historical treasure. With just seven elegant and understated rooms, you may feel like you have awoken in a South American dream in which you run the whole show.
Only a few yards from the residence you will find an award-winning vintage winery that produces crisp and full-bodied wines, using the majestic Andean Mountain Range as a spectacular backdrop. This seductive sanctuary also has one of the area's best restaurants, Terruno, where regional dishes blend with international specialties. You will enjoy them with thoughtfully paired artisan wines, of course. Signature dishes, such as asado, best showcase the country's succulent beef and spicy condiments. Groves of olive trees surround the estate and produce a remarkable variety of oils, which then find their way into many of the estate's signature dishes. You may also take a dip in the sparkling swimming pool. The staff to guest ratio is impressive, and guests truly feel as if they are the only ones that matter. Requests, no matter how big or small, never go unattended. If you are looking for some adrenaline release, the area features a variety of activities such as whitewater rafting, trekking and bicycling to get your heart rate up a bit. Regardless of your wishes, Club Tapiz will certainly dazzle all gourmands and oenophiles, as well as those intrigued by all of the impressive wine and natural beauty that Argentina has to offer.

Reviews for Club Tapiz
I went to Club Tapiz with my son and some friends. It is without a doubt an impressive place. To begin with it is beautiful both inside and outside. The menu is a little funky at first, they have a plastic overlay which shows all of their property in Argentina. But once I turned the page it was a normal menu. I order the 4 plate dinner and each was fantastic. I wonÂ´t say itÂ´s inexpensive, butÂ´s its a good value for the very high quality food. IÂ´d certainly go back.

Small intimate hotel in beautiful setting with nice pool & garden, right on the edge of the vineyard. Free winetasting every night and gorgeous views across to the high Andes. Monica & Alejandro were incredibly helpful, suggesting walks, places to visit and great restaurants. Only small criticism is that only two of the rooms appear to have proper windows, other than those in the doors. So ours became a bit stuffy. All in all, a great place to stay to enjoy the mountains and the wineries.

Small very cosy hotel, with a splendid restaurant and extremely helpfull staff, we spent to nights at the place, we had fine winetastings both evenings, and they arranged a visit to the famous wineyard Alta Vista with picnic in the garden. The surrunding wineyards are good for a walk, it is a highly recomendable place.

Strange title so let me explain. We arrived here yesterday and were warmly welcomed by the manager who showed us round the hotel and escorted us to our attractive room. We swam in the pool and wandered in the fruit and vegetable gardens then went along to the wine tasting which happens every evening at 8 pm. This is a social event where all the guests met and mingled and shared wine before we wandered round to the dining room to enjoy a delightful dinner. So yesterday was a wonderful day and my review to TripAdvisor would have been a top rating. Now to today's review! We did three different wine tastings this morning before a lovely lunch that included yet more wine so we decided we would miss this evening's wine tasting at Tapiz and went straight to dinner at 8pm. Unfortunately there was a large group of people who had made dinner reservations so they were allocated the dining room and all the regular hotel guests were moved elsewhere some upstairs to the top balcony and we were moved outside beside the mosquitoes. Not ideal but we went with it. Our orders were taken for all three courses about 8.15 and we waited and then we waited some more. We saw some of the regular hotel guests struggle up the steep stair well for dinner and then others arrived and sat outside beside us and the mosquitoes. And still we waited till our starters were served during which time the large group of diners arrived who took our places in our dining room! About an hour later we got our main courses which were most enjoyable during which time we watched the regular diners struggle back down the steep stair well having finished their dinner and we were still waiting for our desserts. Eventually our lovely but overworked waiter arrived to say our choices of desserts were finished although they were available when we ordered our meals and remember, we had been first in to dinner tonight but we happened to be last to get served dessert. We can only assume the outside diners who had arrived long after us had got to dessert before we had and had cleaned the kitchen out of what we had ordered two hours previously. Not good enough club tapiz as we are paying to be your guests here and expect better service than we got tonight. Maybe this doesn't happen regularly but potential visitors should be warned it might and it could spoil your evening as it did ours. Shame as otherwise club tapiz has much to recommend it.

We checked into this hotel and there was NO air conditioning in the rooms...."broken"...., When asked the staff for an extra fan, we were told "call your travel agent to buy you one or go to another hotel"..... we expected to go on the winery tour and told " they are all booked up"....Swimming pool had about a half inch of sand in it and dog and cat feces on the pool deck..... Then went to take a shower and long dark hairs covering the bottom... gross!!!
