The hotel is ideally situated between the beach and the lifely main street. Very pleasant owners who look after their guests. Rooms well maintained and clean. The breakfast offered is simple but good and tge staff cares. Parking in front of the hotel at no cost.

First the positives - perfect location, helpful staff, clean hotel. The location was by far the biggest strength of Villa de Mar. It's a one minute walk to a small-ish but nice public beach and a one minute walk to the main street in La Barra, where there are numerous restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. The owner was...

A very cosy family-run hotel, with a fantastic location one minute walk from a beautiful beach. From our hotel room we could see the ocean, and had a nice view of the sunset colours - even without a sea view room. The staff was extremely nice and helpful, and were patient with all our requests - they even loan out...

This small, quiet hotel is located in the heart of bustling La Barra. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Rooms are very basic but you're paying for your proximity to the beach and nightlife which are all steps away.

Location is great for La Barra as it is very central. It is a one-minute-walk to the bars, restaurants and even to the beach. It is also very quiet. But we did not sleep well as the beds were terrible. They had plastic under the sheets which made sleeping noisy and uncomfortable. The hotel was also not very clean. Breakfast...

We stayed here for two nights between Christmas and New Year, and would overall say that the location is great (just two minutes walk from the beach) and the staff friendly and helpful. However, the rooms are basic for the price they charged. Yes, yes it was peak season in Punta del Este but one would expect the room to...

The location of this hotel is outstanding--right on beach and in the middle of la barra. Other than that, everything went downhill. The room was outdated and not too clean. The owners, Daniel and Alicia are much too young to be managing a hotel and do not know the first thing about service. They charged us $75 for checking out...

Andrew, the owner/manager, was an excellent resource and he took care of all of our needs, he spoke english which helped too. The location is 1 minute from the beach...

My first visit to Punta Del Este, I stayed at a couple hotels until I found this little gem in La Barra. The staff was courteous, friendly, and spoke a little English. The price was reasonable and the rooms were fairly sized and clean. Check it out if you want to stay in La Barra near the action!
