Reviewed 27 December 2012

We booked here only because at the end of December everything else is full. The b&b has 4 rooms. 2 of the rooms are basically in the "lobby" and the back of the rooms are beside the pool so the result is that you have no privacy. Anyone that comes in late and makes any noise is right outside your door.

The room can basically fit a bed and that's it. Not sure about those other reviews. There are 2 rooms upstairs which maybe bigger but not the 2 rooms downstairs.

Worse yet there were ants in our room. Can you imagine paying nearly 300 US - night for a dingy room with ants? See attached picture.

The pool was small, cold and a little dirty. The place is across from the beach but a 20 minute walk in each direction to any store or restaurant. You do not want to walk 2 kilometres for a bag of chips or a coffee.

The staff was nice but absolutely zero English.

A better choice is available elsewhere.

We stayed here for five nights in February during Carnival. We were not planning to stay in this area but I am very glad we did. First of all, it is located in a pleasant part of Punta del Este, half way from the peninsula and on the way to Jose Ignacio. We did not like the Peninsula at all for staying during this busy period. Further, the Peninsula is full of turist traps. La barra has plenty of good restaurants and a different vibe: not only tourists desperate to shop!
We did not go to beach in front of the Posada but I assume it is very popular due to the number of cars parked on a sunny day.
The Posada itself is very pleasant, very clean, nice staff, parking, good breakfast and it is a quiet place. We had a room in front of the lobby and we were not bothered at all by any noise.
All in all, I would definetely recommend this place.

This hotel was in a perfect location between downtown Punta del Este and Jose Ignacio. Right across from the beach. The staff spoke some English and were very helpful prior to our arrival making different types of reservations and recommending activities for us. The hotel was comfortable the pool was a little chilly but right across the street from one restaurant and a two minute drive in between La Barra town and Mantianales town with lots to do. Great Value!

We booked a two week northern Argentina trip through Isabel at Buenos Aires tours. In the early stages of our planning she suggested we add a few more days and go to Punta del Este, Uruguay for 3 nights because we were in the "sweet spot" of early December when weather would be nice but the craziness of people and high prices would not start until mid-December.
She suggested Kryon Posada de Mar in La Barra.
We arrived at the posada after 10pm after a long day of travel from Iguazu Falls and were greeted by the most friendly woman at the reception desk. They only have 5 rooms but they have someone available 24 hours a day.
We were so surprised to open the door to our room #3 - it was HUGE and overlooked the beach across the street. There were lots of shelves for unpacking, the bathroom was lovely, and the bed so comfortable. Everything was immaculate.
The posada is located in-between La Barra and Manatiales - each about a 20 minute walk away and the Kryon also has bikes to borrow.
The included breakfast was served outside, weather permitting in their beautiful pool area and we enjoyed the best coffee of our trip, a delicious fresh fruit platter, bread basket, yogurt, cereal.
The free WiFi worked great.
And the BEST part of our stay was meeting the owners, Jover and Olga. They are a wonderful couple and we truly felt they welcomed us into their "home."
It was a wonderful 3 nights that we will always remember.
