Lovely setting, resembling a hotel in the Greek Islands. Very nice pool and gardens, where we enjoyed watching several birds, including a hummingbird around the foliage close to our room. Comfortable rooms with balconies, several lounging areas around the hotel for sitting and relaxing. Excellent breakfast, including eggs cooked to order, fresh fruit, juice, yogurt, breads, tarts, coffee/tea. When we...

Hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Clean, Large room, Nice pool area and clean products at breakfast. They have bikes you can borrow which is Nice as the accomodation is a bit out of town. There was also the possibility to borrow sunchairs which we unfortunately didn't need due to the rain.

The place is magic, very well decorated! It's very well located close to La Barra ( restaurants and shops)and a few miles from José Ignacio. The owner is very helpful and the staff is very kind. We spent 6 wonderful days in that boutique hotel. A very good choice!

This is very special place and a true boutique hotel. You are made to feel special from the very first moment. The location is perfect. Close enough to all the action but secluded enough to feel you are in a special retreat. The decor is stunning with effortless luxury every where you look. The best thing of all is the...

The Hotel is 2 blocks away from the sea. With it's position a little bit away from the center but still very good location to discover la Barra, which you can do by foot or with one of the bikes offered by the hotel and big Punta del Este, for which you'll need a car. The staff was very friendly...

I've been fortunate to stay at Kala meaning 'All Things are Good' in Greek. It's a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting up on the hill and walking distance from the new Bagatelle Beach Bar & famous Playa Montoya. The owner Pablo is very hands on and always around to help with anything needed. Together with Virginia at reception they...

loved the hotel, loved the gorgeous receptionist! Lovely rooms, clean hotel and a great pool! The breakfast was good and service was forthcoming and friendly! The La Barra area is more tranquil than Punta Del Este and the hotel is really secluded and quiet! You will need a rental car really if you want to be flexible. Good golf courses...

Great hotel in quiet area of La Barra, about a 10 minute walk to the beach and restaurants. Hotel is about a 15-20 minute drive to Punta del Este. Nice rooms with balconies, free wifi, small fridge and safe. Great pool area, good breakfast buffet (included). You can borrow chairs for the beach. Friendly service.

The hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff is very friendly. The pool is extremely pleasant as are the rooms and bathrooms. We really enjoyed our stay. The only reason I did not give it excellent overall rating is because I thought the breakfast served could be better and filled with more options. In any case, I would recommend the...

“They are all good, but best one overlooking pool.”

“The ground floor rooms that face the pool have a little less privacy because you can see inside your room from the pool. Staying on the second level is a bit better because you can keep your windows and curtains wide open.”
