The sandy beaches are small but considering the place where the hotel is, they are quite adequate. The service of the staff in the pools is correct.


Here is a point against. the bowling alleys are in very bad condition. We played twice and the balls made any journey

Sofitel La Reserva , it is a hotel to enjoy in itself and to relax. has different options of a city hotel (keep in mind that it is 38 miles from the city of Buenos Aires Argentina and in the middle of the countryside). It is located very close to a state wildlife reserve, so some of the birds in the reserve are sometimes seen inside the park of the Hotel.

I was able to find out reservs and availabilities on the hotel landing page at booking.com

For us it is highly recommended to relax a few days and take a break.

🏄 The Beaches with Pink Sand of the Mediterranean Sea

The Best Pink Beach of the Mediterranean Sea

These are three beaches with pink sand found in the Mediterranean Sea. One in Greece, one in Italy and the last one in Spain. The sand has that color due to the remains of molluscs and marine algae that were deposited during thousands of years on those beaches.

Spiaggia Rossa, Sardinia -Italy

Located in the Bonifacio Strait, in the north of Sardinia, the beaches of Budelli are among the favorite ones of the region.

Pieces of coral, shells and bivalve mollusks give color to the sand of the spa that has been protected territory for twenty years and today offers a spectacular picture. The blue of the sea hits the pink beach and a little further on the intense green of the vegetation. Undoubtedly, a postcard to admire
