The room I was given was beautiful with a lovely front-facing balcony and overall the stay was excellent. However, when my group were mustering the following morning 2... More

We spent four days there with six grandchildren and their parents. It was the perfect place for our group. Kids club was amazing, everyone loved it. Adults got plenty of adult time as well as fun time with the kids. When we met for dinner, the kids were given a special menu, served quickly and then headed to kids club... More

This is a great hotel filled with art in every space. A bit old and need some repairs but the location is so great in the middle of a forest in front of a lake that shows spectacular views. The pool is really nice to rest and relax in the summer. The restaurant is not so good but punta del... More

This hotel is a cute gem found on the outskirts of Punta del Este. It's a great getaway. The breakfast buffet was great. The pool was very clean. They were cleaning the indoor pool so we didn't get to try that out. The spa is very well priced. I would suggest that you ask for a hardwood floor room. Great... More

This hotel is back in the woods, far from the seashore, on a large lake which can be seen from the lobby, dining rooms, first-story terrace and lounge. My room was comfortable and well maintained: no complaints from me about the upkeep. The buffet breakfast offers a nice variety. Lunch on the terrace was pleasant and the food was good.... More

I give this Hotel 4 asterisks for its oustanding location and services. But it definitely need URGENT improvements, specially in the indoor common areas, such as restaurant, pub, fireplace. A side but an important note: coffee is extremely bad.

I spent a couple of days in a company "retirement" in this hotel.
