The Bonne Etoile was an absolutely amazing place to stay during our weeklong vacation in Punta del Este. The staff was very friendly and the hotel retained a lot of old world charm (including leaving you room/car keys at the front when you weren't using them - so you never had to worry about them getting lost in the sand or washing out to sea). Our room was made several times a day, which almost made me feel guilty for sitting on the bed and messing up the sheets, but was a really nice feeling to walk into a clean room whether after a morning walk or when returning from dinner. The furnishings are older, but well kept and obviously well cared for. The complimentary continental breakfast was a great perk; including a never ending basket full of great media lunas and other delicious baked goods, fresh fruits, and meats and cheeses in addition to the usual breakfast fare - the 9-noon service made a great breakfast or lunch option, depending on when you decided to wake up. The hotel is conveniently located such that you are directly in the center of the shopping, with a short walk to the port and all its restaurant options, as well as both La Mansa and La Brava beaches. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend you do as well.

As part of out 6 country, 9 hotel South America trip, both Bonne Etoile and Punte Del Este had the distinction of being by far the worst hotel and worst place we visited - only Montevideo came close!!

Yes, that's right, avoid Uruguay. Our best experience was with a stray dog on the beach.

Really don't understand what all the fuss about Punte Del Este is - sure, it's 'nice enough' and has a beach (so does Skegness) but anyway, this is about the hotel.

The hotel - like something out of the 1970s decor wise, with no English spoken (and we do speak basic Spanish, just not mute Spanish from a surly receptionist) and an average breakfast. Was like walking down the corridors from The Shining towards our room.

Plus points are the comparative value, the location, which is good and the one person who worked there we found who spoke English, who allowed us to check out a day early.

Was going to award 3 stars to be nice but it doesn't deserve them.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else if want a good room!

If you are going to Punta searching for glamour, this is not the place to stay. It's a very simple hotel, with no luxury at all.
The staff is very friendly and helpful and breakfast is good (not great), but the rooms are very old and plain.
The location, on the other hand, is fantastic. Walking distance to the pier or downtown, there are good restaurants in the area and great shops too.
Overall, off season it could be worth it, since it has very good rates, but I wouldn't spend too much to stay at this hotel.

Room was a bit dated but very clean - large bathroom. The night clerk was the only one who spoke English, but all staff were friendly and helpful. Basic breakfast buffet. Excellent location right downtown - close to shopping, restaurants and beaches.
