The Best Polo Experience in Argentina!
nov. 2012
Jeg bodde med Marcos og hans vakre vennlig familie i flere måneder som frivillig og ord kan ikke uttrykke hva en morsom og autentiske opplevelsen jeg hadde bodd i hans vakre estancia som ligger i nærheten av hans Polo Skole El Retiro. Som en kjæreste av hester var det på min liste til å ha en argentinsk Polo opplevelse og for noen andre der ute som ønsker også å krysse av for dette på listen deres over å gjøre er da trenger du ikke lete lenger enn El Retiro. Marcos har spilt Polo i mange år derfor han gjør en flott lærer for alle som ønsker å prøve Polo. Polo kjører i hans blod og de fleste av familien hans også spiller så forventer å være grundig underholdt med massevis av Polo historier!! Han tilbyr Polo ferie i tillegg til Polo dager (eller til og med helgene med muligheten til å bo i en av gjestehus) for alle, uansett hvor de er. I løpet av oppholdet mitt jeg møtte gjester som bodde med Marcos's familie for forskjellige varigheter, på ferie og for Polo Dager og alle kommenterte den velkommen de mottok i tillegg til den vakre naturen til hans flokk med vakre Polo ponniene. Dette er en opplevelse som man ikke gå glipp av på en tur til Argentina! Jeg var heldig nok til å tilbringe noen måneder med Marcos og hans familie, men var overrasket over hvor mye av en opplevelse de som kom bare for dagen hadde. Å spille Polo med en ekte Polo spiller, ser på Club medlemmer enkelt spille Polo mens du smaker en kald øl og en empanada eller 2 etterfulgt av en tradisjonell argentinske Asado og tid til å slappe av på de vakre hagene som omgir svømmebassenget. Det er uten tvil horsey himmelen i Argentina! Jeg vil med glede minnes min tid jeg tilbrakte med Marcos er familie og håper å komme tilbake en dag til en ikke altfor fjern fremtid!

Great fun day
okt. 2013 • Venner
Marcos is a fantastic host, generous, helpful, knowledgeable and the entire experience was great. I went with a friend and we were the only ones there for the day....so talk about personal attention. I had not ridden for about 10yrs and felt completely at ease with the fantastic horses. I found it relatively easy to ride and handle the polo stick and I absolutely loved the chance to "play" and get a feel for what a real polo game is like. I only wish I was a better rider, and it has inspired me to take more riding lessons now that I am home! Anyone wanting an experience that is personalised and gives you exposure to a less touristy experience should definitely do this. My friend decided not to ride and just watch, and she still had a great day: red wine and BBQ what is not to like.

The Best Polo Experience in Argentina!
nov. 2012 • Alene
I stayed with Marcos and his lovely friendly family for several months as a Volunteer and words can't express what a fun and authentic experience I had staying in his beautiful Estancia which is close to his Polo School El Retiro.

As a lover of horses it was on my list to have an Argentinian Polo Experience and for anyone else out there who would also like to tick this off their list of to do's then look no further than El Retiro. Marcos has played Polo for many many years hence he makes a great teacher for anyone wanting to try Polo. Polo runs in his blood and most of his family also play so expect to be thoroughly entertained by lots of Polo stories!! He offers Polo Holidays as well as Polo Days (or even weekends with the possibility of staying in one of the guest houses) for anyone regardless of their experience. During my stay I met guests who were staying with Marcos's family for varying lengths of time, for holidays and for Polo Days and all commented on the welcome they received as well as the lovely nature of his herd of beautiful polo ponies. This is an experience that is not to be missed on any trip to Argentina!

I was lucky enough to spend a few months with Marcos and his family but was amazed at how much of an experience those who came just for the day had. Playing Polo with a real polo player, watching the club members effortlessly play polo while sampling a cold beer and an empanada or 2 followed by a traditional Argentine Asado and the time to chill out in the beautiful gardens which surround the swimming pool. It is without a doubt horsey heaven in Argentina!

I will fondly remember my time I spent with Marcos's family and hope to return one day in the not too distant future!

Polo Day Heaven
des. 2012 • Alene
I have just returned from Argentina and my trip to El Retiro was without question the highlight. I was on a work trip and due to only stay 3 days in BA, but having travelled all the way from the UK to the country i have dreamt about visiting for years being an avid horse lover, i had extended my trip by a couple of days to have a look around BA and fulfil my dream of spending time on an estancia and learning polo. The odds were stacked against me, as i was short of time and hadn't planned anything, but as soon as i phoned Marcos his warm kindly spirit gave me hope i might just be able to do it. Even though he normally takes groups, and riders with considerably more experience and ability, he nevertheless kindly arranged for his son Felix to pick me up from my hotel in BA and drive me out to his ranch, or more accurately home, for just one day of polo. Upon arrival i was instantly made to feel welcome, not just with his family and team, but also with the other guests who were all staying there for extended lengths of time perfecting their polo skills and relaxing in the beautiful open countryside. A lovely bunch of people i would have loved to spend more time with. But friendly as everyone was, there was no dallying around when it came to the polo. This is a serious passion. Within 10 mins, after a fascinating but swift tour of the club house and its historic family photos, we were out on the polo field, first watching everyone else play a few chukkas and learning some basic rules and then it was straight onto a pony for some stick and ball. I couldn't have been more excited, although i realised quickly i had my work cut out for me with my rusty riding skills and less than top peak fitness. This is not a sport for the unfit, and having good riding skills is paramount. But regardless of my poor ability Marcos was very polite and gave great instruction and encouragement, chasing me around the polo field hurtling balls for me to hit, and even landing one squarely on my bottom, more than just the proverbial kick up the rear. It is fair to say i was in heaven. The day was broken into two halves by the most delicious meal cooked back at the main house, plus a much needed dip in the pool and snooze under the tall trees of their garden admiring the 360 degree view, before round two began again. And as the sun set at the end of the afternoon over the distant trees and all Marcos' ponies which had been grazing loose were herded in for the night, cantering past me happily to their stables, and as i took my last swings of the stick to hear the sweet sound of the ball popping forward in the correct direction, i genuinely thought there wasnt a place in the world i would rather be, and wished i wasnt limited to just the one day. i vowed then i would be back, albeit after some fitness training. Marcos you have been warned, this is just the beginning.... ;) Thank you!

A must do in while Argentina!!
sep. 2012 • Venner
Having spent some time exploring Buenos Aires and hearing wonderful stories of gauchos, asados and polo, I jumped at the chance to escape the city and spend a sunny weekend out in the countryside. Much to my delight El Retiro was all I hoped for and more. We were picked up by Marcos, the fully bilingual owner and in no time at all we were out in the beautiful Argentine country. We were greeted on arrival by Marcos’s incredibly welcoming family, and no time was wasted getting everyone on horses and ready to have a lesson. Then came the turn of the local polo players, we watched as they expertly galloped past, hitting the ball with seemingly no effort at all. Lunch was next, provided by Cristina and in typical Argentine style this meant a feast of meat and red wine, much needed after the morning’s exertions! The afternoon was spent relaxing by the pool, reading and drinking mate. The grounds were beautiful and the facilities from the pool house to the main house were all comfortable and had a lovely family feel to them. I’d like to thank absolutely everyone who made it so very enjoyable especially Marcos, Cristina and Fiona. It really couldn’t have been a more brilliant way to spend a weekend and I am already planning my next visit!!

Authentic polo day, faultless
I had a wonderful polo day with Marcos and his family, from the beginning I knew it was going to be a truly wonderful experience. I was recommended this day from our concierge service and given that the are so many to choose from the advice was well worth it. We were picked up from our hotel by Marcos and Fiona, they both speak English and Marcos entertained us with his polo stories during the short journey to the countryside. The polo club was picturesque and unaffected by tourism, there were gauchos gathering horses together and many local polo players practising and schooling their horses. We had drinks and snacks before being assigned a horse according to our level and ability. I thoroughly enjoyed riding in the beautiful argentine countryside and felt a slight improvement after some expert tuition from Marcos! I can actually connect the mallet and the ball! After our lesson we watched a game and munched on empanadas which was heavenly sat in the sunshine. We headed to the family estancia a short distance away for lunch and relaxation. The asado was truly argentinean with delicious meat and potatoes, the family were so welcoming and I genuinely felt like one of them. All the family speak english and Marcos told us about playing polo in Palermo and the connections his family have in the polo community. After lunch we relaxed around the pool and read a book. I tried some Mate (an Argentinean hot tea) which I had wanted to do since I arrived in Buenos Aires. When we were ready to return to Buenos Aires, we were transferred back to the hotel. All in all a truly magical day in the campo, I just wish it had been longer than a day.

Fun, Relaxing and Charming!
sep. 2012 • Venner
I recently spent the day at El Retiro Polo Club and I could not have had a nicer, more charming day! The entire staff, led by the charming Marcos and Christina provided us with an exhilarating day of Polo playing, a delicious Asado and relaxing time by the pool! The entire grounds from the polo field to the main house were gorgeous and beautiful to behold. We were picked up from our hotel in a car by the staff and never wanted for anything. This is such an excellent way to spend a day or even a longer stay and truly experience the Argentine countryside! I highly recommend this for the beginner polo player as well as the more advanced rider. The horses were very well trained and I always felt safe! Congratulations to El Retiro Polo Club for hosting us all in such a truly remarkable manner!

Recientemente he pasado el día en El Retiro Polo Club y yo no podría haber tenido un mejor, más día encantador! El personal al completo, encabezada por el encantador Marcos y Cristina nos da un día emocionante de jugar al polo, un delicioso asado y tiempo de relax en la piscina! Los jardines de todo el campo de polo de la casa principal era precioso y hermoso a la vista. Nos recogieron en nuestro hotel en un coche por el personal y nunca quería para nada. Esta es una excelente manera de pasar un día o incluso una estancia más larga y verdaderamente experimentar el campo argentino! Le recomiendo esto para el principiante jugador de polo, así como el jinete más avanzado. Los caballos estaban muy bien entrenados y siempre me sentí seguro! Felicitaciones a El Retiro Polo Club para acoger a todos nosotros de tal manera verdaderamente notable!

Thanks y muchas gracias! Martin James Grapengeter

A genuine experience in nature
A large and rustic establishment that gives a very genuine experience of what Argentinian polo is like. Very experienced people that are so inviting and generous. Everything was easy and convenient, with transfer included etc. I had a great day and really liked the hands on experience and being part of a polo club as opposed to going to some purely directed to tourist.

A truly authentic polo experience!
sep. 2012 • Venner
Our stay got off to a flying start as we were picked up in a private car by a fully bilingual driver who whisked us off to the campo, about an hour out of central BA. On arrival we were welcomed by the family who made us feel right at home! The ponies were great, with something to suit all levels. Some in the group had never ridden before let alone played polo but its safe to say that everyone got the most out of it! Marcos, the owner and polo teacher extrodinaire, had wonderful stories about his days playing in Palermo. He is an extremely funny man and his charming wife Cristina truly is the hostess with the mostess as we say in the UK! The facilities are perfect, very comfortable bedrooms, beautiful swimming pool set in the glorious park that surrounds the family home. I could have stayed for much longer and will definitely return! A big thank you to everyone at El Retiro for the wonderful time my friends and I had with you! I will be recommending you to everyone!!

Hi Roddie, Firstly thanks for coming to our polo day at El Retiro, we certainly enjoyed your company. Indeed, my wife is the 'hostess of the mostess', that phrase is a new one for me. I really enjoyed talking to your about passion for polo and the genetics of the ponies. Do keep in touch and if there is anyway I can help with your plans to breed ponies do not hesitate to get in touch. Thank you again for you kind words and we hope to see you soon Marcos
