It is a floating log cabin, very eco-friendly made from re-purposed materials, not so much a luxury resort. Jose Ignacio 15 minutes just down the road is more Hampton-esque if that is what you are looking for. weirded out by the review about the bugs, almost like it's not possible? The entire place is covered in birds. Didn't even have to use bug spray, no problem with mosquitoes. Maybe that guy stayed in a cabin near the kitchen? I had a similar situation in a cabin in India -- the ones nearest the kitchens always have a pest problem. I did see 2 large spiders off our own gangplank. We, however, LOVED our stay, no bad bugs, enjoyed every sunset, went kayaking every day. We even saw a capybara!!! It was glorious. Considered giving this a 4 stars because the queen mattress is really 2 twin beds squished together and bathroom window needs to be open at all times but their on-site chef makes good enough food to justify rating. Excellent for the money. Dog-friendly hotel too. Kayaks included in price.

My partner and I just spent three lovely and peaceful nights at the Laguna Garzon Lodge. Located about 20 minutes from the "Hamptons" like vibe of Jose Ignacio, and about 40 minutes from the Miami Beach frenzy of Punta del Este, Laguna Garzon consists of 12 rustic cabins that float on the Laguna Garzon, a bird and fish sanctuary. Each cabin has its own deck from which you can jump directly into the lagun, outfitted with beach chairs and a hammock. You can spend your days floating on your deck and rocking back and forth in your hammock, or go across the street to a pristine and virtually empty beach, whose brown sands and foamy white waves seem to stretch for miles. There are also certain water sports nearby. The lodge itself is informal, done in beachy chic, with repurposed materials, ie. old fishing baskets as lampshades. We took full advantage of the wonderful cook, who made us fresh meals each day (and made us feel like she was our personal chef). The staff is made up in part of members of the nearby fishing village, and their catch of the day is often on the menu. The staff went out of its way to accommodate our needs. I have only two caveats to this wonderful place: one, I highly recommend that you have a car, as we found taxi service (and Uber) to be expensive and often unavailable, and two, it would have been nice to have had a naturalist available who could have guided us through the wildlife in detail. Aside from those comments, this is truly a place for those looking for an alternative to the usual Uruguayan beach resorts.

We were there off season, so while it’s great to have the place to ourselves, a lot of nearby restaurants were closed. Still, the floating cabin was cool. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was ok. We enjoyed the lake and shore, great birding, even directly from the cabin.

Floating on Laguna Garzon, the lodge is wonderful. It is quiet, away from the crowds in Jose Ignacio. The lagoon was perfect for kayaking (kayaks available at no charge) and when the wind picked up, was full of kite surfers. From out little porch, the sunset was spectacular. It is a very simple place (no television which we liked). Each cabin is floating on its own dock. The main building has a lovely dining room and porch overlooking the lagoon. A spectacular beach is right across the street, and La Balsa, a very good restaurant, is a short walk up the road.

Located 5km after Jose ignacio, The Laguna Garzon Lodge, is a simple, friendly and quiet place to escape to to relax. Each floating cabin is clean, comfortable and gives great views over the lake and for sunsets in the evening. We have been twice and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
