Once a beautiful home, turned into a hotel, with lovely furnishings. Many of the rooms have private balconies. The beach is just across the road. The surrounding neighborhood is very nice beach houses and great for walking or jogging. Several good restaurants nearby, or in 15 minutes you can be in the more developed part of Punta del Este. Breakfast...

It's not the Ritz, and it's not meant to be, so it does tick all the boxes of a charming "get away" nest. There is no TV in your room, or phone, or enough power outlets to set up any kind of decent working space.... but there is a purpose with that: You can actually talk with the other people...

So easy, so chilled and Hugo is so helpful and lovely. No this is not a five star hotel but there is ample hot water, the AC works, the bed is comfortable, it is clean and most of all it feels like staying in Hugo's home. Don't stay here if you want to hang by the pool. But the beach...

First time I write a review of this kind. I have read all reviews before booking, and it is now obvious people who wrote them have never been to a 4 or 5 star hotel. The facilities need complete improvement and maintenance. Uninviting pool due to wild and unkept landscape which also wouldn't let any sun come into the room,...

As part of a long trip through South America we had a break at La Barra beach and hotel La Bluette. We really enjoyed our stay in this friendly and family run hotel. The owner was very helpful and we really loved their home made pasta and pizzas. Breakfast was outstanding!

From the outside the hotel does not look very imposing, part hidden amongst dense vegetation. Yet it is a sizeable house with 22 rooms built in the mixed colonial/Mediterranean style. Most surprisingly, it was designed and constructed by Hugo, its friendly and charismatic owner. There is a cavernous hallway with communal TV and a spacious veranda at the front, perfect...

The location is perfect. The building and deco are impeccable. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is delicious. And the people who work there (especially charming Hugo and his lovely wife) are the nicest people ever. What more could you possibly want? Enjoy!

We reserved the Suite and then had to change the room for a smaller on the second floor, but the owners made no problems at all and they were extremely helpful. Hugo and Alicia, the owners, are extremely helpful with recommendations to entertainment, dinning, and beaches to visit. Their service people are extremely polite as well and the breakfast a...
