After a long search for a hotel around Punta del Este, the nicest of beach resorts in Uruguay, we thought to try La Posta. It was down a beach-front road south of Punta, almost a neighborhood to itself, more reminiscent of a small California beach town than South America. La Posta, I learned, had been in one family for many years and the woman who owned the complex was renowned in local society for her culinary skills and friendliness. Our room was not inexpensive, a bit over $200, but it was beautiful and the view overlooking Punta and a beach below the hotel and a mere hundred yards away was sublime. The large bed was romantically surrounded by drapes and was made with expensive linens and piled high with pillows. The bathroom was spotless tilework from floor to ceiling in intricate patterns and colorful motifs. We loved it. Each corridor was beautifully appointed with slightly worn furniture and aging paintings. Rough dark beams were set against bright stucco walls. Blue paint added plenty of color. The dining area was understated elegance, the breakfast was complete and very tasty. Staff were quite friendly, very helpful and courteous. Check in and out were handled with respect and kindness. The hotel has Wi-Fi, but was hard to connect in our upper and corner room. Not far away, just a walk in fact, were plenty of nice shops and little cafes where the locals and the seasonal visitors congregated. We would not hesitate to stay there again, especially for any special occasion we might wish to create. We simply loved the place.
