This resort is very nice, but it needs to remodel the rooms that are getting old. Internet works fine and the area around the pool is very good. Incredible that they don't have fresh juices for breakfast. Also breakfast glasses for juices are tiny. Tv in the room is too small and lousy picture quality. Getting in and out of...

Terrible hotel and service. Supposed to have a 5 star service and facilities but very very far from that. Extremely dirty the bath and in very bad shape. Not recommend at all. They don't have staff to clean the rooms.

Hotel is in the middle of nothing, far from the beach (ca. 1,5 km). Hotel do not have "warm holiday atmosphere" especially a restaurant, that associates me with cold, white production hall. Service in the hotel very unpleasant (especially in the reception), cleaning in the rooms not earlier than 4 pm !! (It means that in 5* hotel more than...

Stayed here over Xmas 2013 - great place to chill out and relax. Pool is great (spent most days by the pool), rooms were clean. Had a room overlooking the garden. Didn't check out the casino. Car parking also available.

This is my favorite hotel in Punta del Este and I've attended it many times on and off season. It is strategically located within reasonable driving distance of both downtown Punta del Este and Jose Ignacio (nowadays the two "centers of gravity" of the broader Punta del Este tourism region.) It is a beautiful and well kept mid-size hotel, with...

Our stay at Mantra was overall very good. The food was delicious and the spa was pretty good (better than most spas we have been to in Uruguay or Argentina). The rooms were clean and the service was also pretty good. Breakfast was great, and the outdoor pool was beautiful and heated!
