Hotel L'Auberge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 April 2012

As a Uruguayan, I tend to stay at hotels more outside than inside of my own country, and having lived in Mexico, Brazil and the US, I can say that I could be a "seasoned traveller". L'Auberge is a hotel that makes my country proud. It is such a superb property. The rooms, gardens and service are impecable. They could use better toiletries. Location wise, you will need a car to get around. It is an oasis of peace and relaxation for anyone planning on taking some days off from our hectic lives.

Room Tip: We got a suite far away from reception and social areas. Very private and quite, but we did go off...

We enjoyed our short stay at L'Auberge. The property looks and feels like a lovely British manor -both in its decor and its gardens. The staff are very professional and gracious. Our only two complaints were that it was a bit hard to find. The hotel is hidden away - there's not even a hotel sign marking the property. Note that it's not close to the beach. And second, the food was quite pricey, although having said that, it was good, but think NYC prices!

Room Tip: Get a room with the bathtub. The shower pressure is not great.

L'Auberrge prides itself to be the best hotel in Punta, which we of course believed when deciding on where to stay. But these days are definitely over. The premises are very nice and well kept, it is peaceful and safe. But the rooms definitely need some refurbishmnent - or prices have to be adjusted. We paid 380 USD per night for something that was not worth half of it. Albeit clean, it was too dark, too old, shower with no pressure etc. Again, I don't mind this, but not at that rate.
Yet, like everything on this trip through Argentina and Uruguay, it was simply highly overpriced and a very poor price ratio. They hace European prices while the service is on 3rd world standards.

Stayed: April 2012

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your TripAdvisor review.

We are glad to know you found our premises to be nice and clean, and that you could enjoy the peace and quiet of our location during your stay at L'Auberge.
We believe to have nice rooms, well kept, and we work very hard to keep everything working in order. Our maintenance staff are always willing to help should you need anything quickly fixed.
Remember that our hotel is part of the history of Punta del Este, standing for over 64 years in the heart of this neighborhood which it helped grow. So of course ours is not the modern option.

We are sure you can enjoy more of our hotel if you get to know more about it and understand its history and all the work the family owners and all its long-term staff have put into it.

We hope you can visit us again soon, and we'd be glad to show you around to a better stay at L'Auberge and a nicer feel of Punta del Este.

Kind regards,

Ignacio Carrera
Owner.

No complaints on the hotel at all. Food was excellent (was the best I had in Uruguay). Rooms, amenities, and service all good. The hotel is a bit far from town though so you will either need to bike or taxi from the hotel. Overall an excellent stay (was our first time in PDE).

Dear Richard,

Thank you for your nice review!

We are very glad to know that you had a wonderful stay at L'Auberge, and we are honored to know that your best uruguayan meal was here too !
I will compliment our chef who will be happy to learn this.

L'Auberge is set right in the heart of Punta del Este, 6km each way to the main centric area (La Punta, downtown) or La Barra, but probably anywhere you stay in Punta you will need a car to move around and get to know all the nice places, beaches, restaurants, etc.
Even if you are staying downtown you could have walking access to some shops, but you would also need a car to get to know all the other neighborhoods up to José Ignacio which are a must.

Thank you for choosing L'Auberge for your first visit to Punta !
We look forward to welcoming you again very soon.

Best regards from all of us at L'Auberge!

I can't complain about this place at all. I think we had sticker shock, since we had just come from Argentina where everything was really cheap. The room was nice, the grounds are beautiful, and we ended up eating dinner there twice. The waffles that everyone raves about are good, but if you get two waffles and two coffees the bill is around $50 US dolllars, and that is just a snack there. The staff was great and helped us arrange a car (which everyone should get if they want to visit all of the different beaches). We visited March 14-17 and we could tell that it was starting to be the off-season in PDE. Multiple restaurants were closed. I don't know if it was just the week that were were there, but the average age at L'Auberge was probably 45.
