Nice room price was as expected for Punta del Este.Best resort in the southern cone but worst hotel prices, as may happen in other resorts. Very cool room on to the street 32 degrees outside but very cool , I guess it was still dragging the winter effect. Bathroom was ok and has a 99%( no shuko) universal socket for all electric plugs, never seen that before. Close to everything in La barra walking distance from beach for those on foot. The bed could of been better nice size but hard in the middle. The only thing really disliked was ben charged in advance, for 2 o 3 runa ways you cant treat everyone as crooks. That said I asked for an extra hour to check out and got it.The reception guy was very nice. BTW remember La Barra is 20 minutes ( ni traffic) away from Punta del Este

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. Staff is usually not available at the desk to assist you (you will probably need to look around for a bit, but eventually you will run into them). I guess this is just part of the surfer easygoing atmosphere that has taken over La Barra over the years. Our room was spacious, but far from the cleanest we have seen in our trip. Pillows did not have covers upon arrival, but were provided upon request. Breakfast was alright, but nothing special. This was just one of those regular stays you end up forgetting about pretty soon.

I found this place on Trip Advisor while staying in Montevideo so it was a bit of a last minute booking. It was the off season and so I think we were lucky to have secured a room at this late moment as this seemed to be a popular place for visiting Argentinians and Brazilians that we met over the well-prepared breakfast. Our stay was enhanced by the helpful owners who helped us to locate a rent a car during our stay, even driving us to the rental facility in Punta del Este near the bus station, about 7 miles away from the hotel. We will return here for the overall ambiance of the place and helpful and friendly owner/staff people. Thank you!!

Location right on the road from Punta del Este. Nice view of the sea. Charming, but a bit noisy. Not only traffic but the opening and closing of doors and people coming and going. Reception. Friendly and helpful personnel and nicely decorated. Breakfast –Continental with ham and cheese. It is all in a refrigerator next to the buffet. We almost missed it the first day. Nice patio. It starts at 9 AM Rooms were well decorated and spacious with a view of the sea and a nice balcony with 2 chairs and a table. Beware of the mosquitoes in this area. Lighting is good for reading. Bed –firm nicely appointed with good pillows Linen clean and white Refrigerator yes Wi-Fi-yes TV- yes modern with several channels. Plenty of room for bags. Tea Kettle- no Bathroom- small but well appointed Towels- Nice clean and white Amenities –soap, shampoo and conditioner Hair dryer – wall,but had good power Parking- yes

I booked this hostal one day in advance and got the last room available, to my surprise it was the best room in the hostal!! 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. The view was also pretty nice, you can watch the sun go down while chilling on the deck. There were a couple of downsides though. The room is a bit noisy (the hostal is located on the main road - ruta 10 - where cars pass by all day and night, and they were redoing the room beside mine, so during the day there was a bit of noise due to that) and bright. Also the breakfast that's included is very simple, not that it bothered me much, there was bread and butter so it was fine by me, but I think it's worth mentioning. The staff if very much friendly, always asking if I needed something and if my stay was being pleasant. All in all I thought it was a very good stay and fair priced also, I would definitely go back to Hostal de la Barra.

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. Many lights did not work. Also, you have no safe in the hotel room. Furthermore, breakfast was terrible. We were so disappointed. Also, the hotel is directly on the big street and so the room was very noisy, even though it was the room farthest away from the street. We can at least say, that the staff was very friendly. And they just charged us for one night even though they would have been entitled to charge for the second night too (24 hour cancelling policy). But we would definitely not go back here. Also because the hotel is very expensive compared to much nicer hotels in the area, which are much more clean, much more quiet and at a more central location.
