It's not the Ritz, and it's not meant to be, so it does tick all the boxes of a charming "get away" nest. There is no TV in your room, or phone, or enough power outlets to set up any kind of decent working space.... but there is a purpose with that: You can actually talk with the other people around you!
So if you're not easygoing while on vacations, or a dog-person, then I suggest you go for something else in Punta.
The kindness and the customer service of all the tenants and the staff is beyond anything We have ever witnessed, from sorting us out travel arrangements to repeatedly offering us a lift and making us DELICIOUS breakfast ( served until 13:00 !), and even preparing us some nice surprises during our stay ( amazing snacks, even a romantic dinner!).
Also, the 2 fantastic dogs make the place feel like your own family vacation home.
The rooms are very well decorated with good taste and very clean and comfortable, at night you see can hear waves( the beach is less than 60 meters in front of the entrance.) and "grillos" and you feel very far away from everything. Was very relaxing.
The main suite is definitely worth it ,we stayed there the last 2 nights, there you can wake up with the sunrise while still in bed, priceless!

So easy, so chilled and Hugo is so helpful and lovely. No this is not a five star hotel but there is ample hot water, the AC works, the bed is comfortable, it is clean and most of all it feels like staying in Hugo's home. Don't stay here if you want to hang by the pool. But the beach is across the street and the location is great as it is just a short and scenic walk to La Barra shops and restaurants. Would recommend to anyone that isn't looking for cookie cutter accommodation.

First time I write a review of this kind. I have read all reviews before booking, and it is now obvious people who wrote them have never been to a 4 or 5 star hotel. The facilities need complete improvement and maintenance. Uninviting pool due to wild and unkept landscape which also wouldn't let any sun come into the room, not to mention then the humid smell. This is a 2 or maybe 3 star hotel at the most. The building itself is beautiful and could be gorgeous if completely improved, but it is not the case. Breakfast is ok if you wouldn't have to wait 45 minutes every morning to be served. Still in the highest season and only two people serving? Unbelievable. Once there, we realized there are too many better options around for the same price. However, great location (you still need a car), friendly owners and staff members.

Room Tip: Only choose the ones on second floor, more sunlight.

As part of a long trip through South America we had a break at La Barra beach and hotel La Bluette. We really enjoyed our stay in this friendly and family run hotel. The owner was very helpful and we really loved their home made pasta and pizzas. Breakfast was outstanding!
