“Lovely quiet location near Laguna and airport”
Reviewed 25 June 2011

We stayed at the Posada Siglo for 4 nights in May 2011 so that we could explore the area with a view to possible relocation from Australia.
We booked the Cardenal Suite which is upstairs in this lovely property. There are also rooms on the grount floor. There are pictures of the nice rooms on the website.

Unfortunately there was a mix up with our booking dates by the owner and the place was completely deserted when we arrived. Eventually I was able to contact the owner and then there was a great rush to get someone to come to the property to let us in and turn on the hot water etc. Once everything was sorted it was okay and we were also offered a discount off our accommodation because of the mix-up.

We rented a car at Punta del Este airport and it was a very simple drive along Ruta 12 and 9 to find our way to the Posada.

The young couple that are managing the property have limited English but I think they are trying to learn more, and we managed okay with a lot of pointing and the computer translator.

There was a computer available for the internet and a nice lounge area where you could sit and enjoy the view or read a book or even watch tv.

Breakfast is included in the price, and there is the option of purchasing dinner each night, which we did as there are no shops close by. We were given a menu each day to choose from, so that the food could be prepared at night for us.

My husband needed some emergency dental treatment and everyone was very helpful finding us a local dentist and making an appointment. Even though our Spanish is improving it is still very much appreciated to have someone help us like this.

We enjoyed our stay very much and took delight in seeing the alpacas as we took some walks in the morning.

Would definitely recommend a stay here if you like peace and quiet and nice friendly hosts, but you do need a car to get around.

Overall an excellent experience! We spent three days in this beautiful, comfortable and very relaxing venue in the middle of high season. The service was wonderful. Highly recommend the sunset view of the lake and hills, preferably with a drink in your hands! Also pretty unique how you feel as if you're in the middle of the countryside... yet you're only 20 minutes away from some of Punta's superb beaches. Just one note: If you plan to spend most of your stay in Punta close to the Jose Ignacio area, this will be too far away for you. Otherwise, it's great value and FAR better than staying at typical hotel. This has Uruguay charm written all over it.

We found this beautiful Inn thanks to the internet and spent the last weekend there and decided to write a review (which we don't normally do!) as we were more than happy with our stay. This "posada" has a lot to offer: a gorgeous view of the Laguna del Sauce, rooms that are impeccably clean and decorated with a very authentic country style, all surrounded by beautiful greenery, making for an amazing and tranquil stay. The Service and Attention is spectacular and they give you everything you need to feel right at home. It is located within the "Estancia Siglo XX" where you can access all their free amenities (museums, sports, horseback riding, and even rides on a sulky cart!). The only minor issue is that it is 10-15 minutes by car from the beach and half an hour to the center of Punta del Este, but that was not a big deal for us since we were looking to just relax in a beautiful and comfortable setting.
