First, some advice about the Punta del Este/La Barra/Jose Ignacio area in general. It is super expensive, so be prepared, and don't go if you aren't prepared to spend 2 to 3 times for food and hotels as you would at upscale Caribbean resorts.

La Mantra is an attractive hotel, a bit off the main drag in La Barra. You will want a car if you stay here, as it's too far to walk to anything but maybe the beach itself. We came off season around American Thanksgiving time, and occupancy was light. It was odd not to be able to get change at...

The resort is nice enough but the over the top prices do not match the level of the hotel or service. One lesson learned - you really must rent a car when staying or else you could find yourself paying $100 round trip in taxi fees to go somewhe 15 minutes away.

This is a beautiful hotel with a lovely spa. Good room service, nice pool, front desk staff nice ans helpful. A nice chap on the door who gets taxis for you very quickly. But a usd 30 taxi ride away from the 'main' punta beach but I think the niceness of the hotel makes it worth it.

We spent 7 dayn at Mantra, and it was a very nice experience (quite pricey though). Service was very good, but the hotel should try to become a little more modern, with a better wifi service, or more computers available to the guests. But considering prrice performance, it was certainly one of the top hotels in the region. SPA is...
