A very cosy family-run hotel, with a fantastic location one minute walk from a beautiful beach.
From our hotel room we could see the ocean, and had a nice view of the sunset colours - even without a sea view room.
The staff was extremely nice and helpful, and were patient with all our requests - they even loan out sunscreen 70 to sunburnt guests (note: the sun is REALLY strong in the Punta del Este area, as we found out firsthand...). They also lend out beach chairs/lounges and beach towels (free of charge) to hotel guests.
Before deciding on where to stay we were not so sure where "La Barra" was, but it turned to be a very good choice - much better than Punta del Este when not a teenager.. Nice restaurants and a few bars, and very classy beaches and people. And also it´s a relatively short distance to visit the famous Bikini Beach (not so sure why it´s famous, the La Barra beach was much better) and also to José Ignacio where the rich & beautiful hang out and where there are several excellent restaurants.
If we go back, we would definitely choose this hotel again! We have been staying at a lot of the big chain hotels in Argentina (i.e. Sheraton) and it was really nice for a change to have the cosy and familiar atmosphere that this hotel provided - it felt like staying at somebody´s home.
