The resort is nice enough but the over the top prices do not match the level of the hotel or service. One lesson learned - you really must rent a car when staying or else you could find yourself paying $100 round trip in taxi fees to go somewhe 15 minutes away.

This is a beautiful hotel with a lovely spa. Good room service, nice pool, front desk staff nice ans helpful. A nice chap on the door who gets taxis for you very quickly. But a usd 30 taxi ride away from the 'main' punta beach but I think the niceness of the hotel makes it worth it.

We spent 7 dayn at Mantra, and it was a very nice experience (quite pricey though). Service was very good, but the hotel should try to become a little more modern, with a better wifi service, or more computers available to the guests. But considering prrice performance, it was certainly one of the top hotels in the region. SPA is... More

This property is amazing and the amenities are top notch. The linen sheets were something that I will never forget. However, the service here was a little off the mark. I figured because we were on Uruguay that it was a challenge, but for the price, they need to step up. The beach was fantastic. And the pool was one... More

Beautiful resort, nice casino and spa, comfortable bed and beautiful rooms.

I'm currently staying here for an event being held in Mantra's convention center. The resort is beautiful, clean, comfortable and peaceful.

A nice hotel albeit quite expensive (even off-off-season). Service was just okay and there were very few guests at the time (I believe only 12 of the 99 rooms were filled).
