We've just returned from spending 5 nights at the charming Posada Azul Marino and truly enjoyed our stay with them. I think it's fair to start with some basic notes regarding the location: Jose Ignacio is about 40mins drive from the busy partying areas of Punta del Este but we thought that was definetely a plus. We were on honeymoon so were looking for some relaxing time away from the busy partying and Jose Ignacio was perfect. It's only 20mins drive from La Barra and Manantiales which are now quite trendy areas and where a lot of good restaurants and bars are. After 6 days there we came to the conclusion that Jose Ignacio and Manantiales were much more charming and fun than punta del este itself. The posada is lovely, clean and the owners are geniunly friendly and helpful. They offer their help for a lot of things but they also let you relax and help you out chosing restaurants and things to do. The other thing to note is that a lot of wealthy people have houses in Jose Ignacio (Shakira even owns a house there!) so even though it might appear remote at first, that area is very popular now hence the expensive rates. Also, make sure you have dinner at the restaurant next door (Marismo) that was one of the nicest meals we had in the entire trip!
