Reviewed 28 February 2012

Nice, clean, good pool, good service. Location is not perfect but ok.
Very helpful staff.
Maybe better to stay in la barra for 'beach cool'.

The hotel is located close to the beach and is very convenient. The rooms are cramped and the beds seem shorter than the normal queen bed. Breakfast was reasonable, but only reasonable. My problems started when the family decided to spend less time in Punta del Este than we had originally planned. The hotel had taken an imprint of my credit card when we entered the hotel and billed me for the entire five day amount ($1450). Although we stayed at the hotel for only three days, there was no way we could obtain a refund for the last two days, which we did not use. They finally offered a voucher for use at their hotel. Since I will not be returning to their hotel, the voucher is useless. Be sure you know the length of your stay before surrendering your credit card to the hotel staff!

Best Western La Foret Hotel is placed in Punta Del Este city (Uruguay).
The good things are: Near to the beach, only one block from it. There is a nice mall, not so far, you can walk to there aproximately 10 minutes from the hotel. Don´t need to take a cab for it. I was surprise about their breakfast, I thought very good. The room was nice, clean, quiet. Beautiful swimming pool.
The bad things are: the reception staff were rude (only one guy there was friendly). When you deal with people, specially tourists, I think you should treat them well. They don´t serve dinner, only snacks. If you want to eat dinner you need to go out or ask for a delivery.
If you like exciting places, don´t go to Punta out of the high season, it is like a ghost city, nobody there and nothing to do. Otherwise, if you like a quiet place, it is the best location to spend time.

Lovely place, lovely staff, especially convenient if you are on a business trip. But the beach is only 100m (330 ft) away. Far from downtown, but walking on the beach will pay it off.
