I want to explicitly mention the friendly staff - Rocio was very nice and helpful. Good location near Montoya Beach and within walking distance of a small shopping mall and restaurants. The hotel and the room itself are nothing fancy, but it's definitely good value for money. Everything was clean. Rather simple but tasty breakfast. WIFI working well. Big bed.

This hotel is located at the farthest end of La Barra. Since Punta del Este is somewhat overpriced, we were not surprised that this place was a bit pricey for what it delivers.

I found this place on Trip Advisor while staying in Montevideo so it was a bit of a last minute booking.

The room was VERY spacious, the closet was decent sized, it even had a jacuzzi!! The room on the top floor had 2 decks with a table, a couple of chairs and two sunbathing stretchers....

We planned to stay here for 5 nights but we left after just one night. We booked the suite or loft room or how it was called. The room had just been refurbished. Probably they finished painting the room the same day we arrived. You could barrely breathe in it. It was terrible. The entire hotel was still under construction....
