We went there to spent a couple of days on the famous beaches of Jose Ignazo. The concept of this bed&breakfast is "being at home" and that is how everyone is treated. Very friendly, open minded and someone is always around just in case you have a question. We have loved this place. Nevertheless we think there is -taking value for money into account- some room for little improvements (e.g. complementary bottle of water, candke lights for the veranda or a flower for your room). But those are only little things. This is a place to come back.

Overlooking one of Jose Ignacia's sensational beaches, the Posada del Faro was a great place to relax and unwind after travelling around Argentina. The local airport is a 40-minute flight from Buenos Aires and the hotel is an hour further on in a hire car. It is an easy journey on excellent, well-signed roads. Our room was large and comfortable with a first floor balcony overlooking the beach - a great vantage point to see the wonderful sunsets. Wi-Fi was good throughout, there is a well-stocked honesty bar, a dipping pool and efficient, friendly staff. Breakfasts were continental in style but large with freshly-baked breads, a selection of fresh fruit, fresh orange juice and local yogurt. The posada is on the edge of the community which has only recently been established and it appears to be established for the well-off of the region. Magnificent homes - all newly built - are dotted around both the community (too small to call a town and certainly not a village) and the coastline. There is also a lot of building work going on. Estate agents and design shops dot key sights. When we were there, the amount of construction meant there was inevitable noise when travelling around although little could be heard from the posada. We were there at the beginning of December which is very much the start of the season and many of the restaurants and bars were closed which was disappointing. However, those that were open were excellent, if more expensive than elsewhere in Uruguay. The local fish was superb. Most of the restaurants are an easy 10-minute walk from the posada although there are carts and bikes available at the hotel for those wanting an easier journey. There are also towels, chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Indeed, beach walks are a 'must' as those on both sides of Jose Ignacia are superb with mostly crashing surf-waves although there are points where it is safe to swim. The beaches are massive and wide expanses with plenty of dunes providing protection from the often bracing winds. On one walk a baby seal came down the beach infront of us and entered the sea. It was a truly memorable stay and the posada was an ideal base although do check that Jose Ignacia is actually 'open' and not still slumbering as when we were there. One crucial piece of advice if travelling from the UK, take dollars or Euros or load your travel credit card (such as Revolut) as Sterling is deemed a very poor relation here.

I dont think there are many hotels in Jose Ignacia, didnt see many .Stayed three nights midweek early December the hotel was not busy only a few rooms were occupied, this changed on Friday when presumably weekenders turned up This hotel is not cheap. What it has in its favour is a lovely view over the sea and comfortable rooms. The breakfast was very good you could have it in a small downstairs dining room or by the pool or in your room. There was very little noise. However during the day, there was some passing construction traffic. If beach walking is your thing you will not be disappointed you can walk miles along beautiful sandy beaches without hordes of tourists However I understand Christmas, new year and January are very busy. Two things which slightly affected our stay was cool windy weather so we did not use the pool and an empty resort. We managed to find one good resturant open at night which was about 15/20 mins walk away down by the lighthouse, most restaurants were shut midweek but opened Friday as the resort and hotel got busier. Staff were good and helpful. Two tips go for an upstairs room with balcony so you get a better view. Buy bottled water in the supermarket the hotel price I think is excessive, it should be included in the price

When we entered our room (Privado 4), we were blown away by how large and beautifully rustic it was. We had a balcony with a beautiful view of the ocean. The bathroom was beautifully done with a concrete tub (water pressure and water temp was perfect). There are no tvs in the room but if you must watch tv there is one in the lounge downstairs. The grounds and pool area were beautiful. We were the only people there for two days so we did not experience any noise so I can't comment on that. The closet space was great, with a mini fridge with pop and water. Downstairs there is an honor bar to make your own drinks. The room was very clean. My only complaint was the lack of much of a selection for room service (just tuna salad sandwich and grilled ham and cheese). However, breakfast was tasty and fresh (rolls and croissants, fresh yogurt, granola, and jams. Coffee was strong and tasty. We were able to take a golf cart (provided by hotel) into town for restaurant and some sightseeing. The staff were great, attentive to our every need. Thanks for a great stay!

I was looking forward to staying at this hotel. What a HUGE disappointment. Our bathroom smells like horse manure. They put fragrant flowers in there to mask the odor, but nothing could cover up a smell that pungent. When we checked in we found out that basically everything is self service. This is so they can get away with very little staff. No one speaks English, which is fine, but I don’t find the staff friendly or helpful. If it’s self service, they ought to be able to explain how things work— but we got NO explanation. At these prices, it shouldn’t be self- service. Water is US $4 for self service! Room service is basically non-existent. They have ham and tuna sandwiches. They advertise having a chef, but the chef was unavailable the night we were there. Except, the chef was available for the people in th room next to us! How do I know? You could hear every conversation, footstep, and squeaky floor in the place. No privacy. Extremely loud place. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, don’t come here. It’s anything but relaxing. The room keys are skeleton keys. They’re old and they don’t work. When we checked in, the AC wasn’t on in the room. It was super hot. Extremely unmviting. Then the bathroom sink didn’t drain. No use complaining because no one would do anything. Service is not a hallmark on this joint. I’ve stayed at roadside motels that are better. Reviewers who ranked this place highly are misleading the traveling public.
