We stayed a couple of days in this nice hotel in José Ignacio last January. Overall a very nice place. We had booked a standard room but that was sort of a disappoitment (no view at all) so we upgraded to a beautiful room on the first floor with great views of the sea and the sunset. The beach bar...

The place is, as another reviewer writes, a corner of heaven. Stunning views, simple and elegant rooms, perfect breakfasts, attentive but un-invasive staff. Great idea to have an honesty cocktail bar by the pool. Truly relaxing holidays - and in my view wonderful not to have tv's in the rooms!!

Fantastic boutique hotel with an ideal location. Amongst some of the best restaurants in the area, pasada del faro also has a wonderful restaurant. Great property, pool and wonderful staff who don't fuss. A perfect escape.

La Posada del Faro is a delightful boutique hotel in a quiet seaside town, 40 km from the hustle of Punta del Este -- whose light are viisble in the distance at night. It is not cheap -- a classic case of paying more for less, and getting ideal service, peace and quiet -- and worth every penny. The hotel...

This is the place you want to come to if you're exhausted from the big city life. Here, everything is mellow. It's just like being in a large house, that you happen to share with a few other guests. The house dog just completes that picture. Perfect location, a few minutes walk to the few restaurants in town, and right...

JJ, from the 70's TV show Good Times, would love this place b/c it is Dyyyy-no-miiiiiite!! It's kinda small-- about the size of its neighboring beach houses, but still it pops--clean, good-sized suites (at least the upper corner ones) with a homey backyard, pool deck and cool little swim-up bar, sweet views of the sand dunes, south atlantic, and sunset,...

My husband and I stayed at La Posada for 3 nights in April, which are the autumn months in Uruguay. We had the entire hotel all to ourselves for the first evening. Punta del Este was very very quiet this time of year and as such there weren't many dining options available to us; most establishments were closed mid-week (we...

We spent 2 nights at La Posada del Faro and enjoyed it immensely. The location was superb and the hotel well appointed with a personal service. In all it was a sensational place, which deserves more publicity.

“The rooms on the right side of the hotel (Private) are the most spacious ones. Best rooms are on the top floor of this section. On the left side of the hotel there are excellent rooms as well. If you want to have straight view over the ocean, ask for rooms on the second floor facing the swimming pool. The Hotel staff are wonderful and will accommodate your request.”
