I give this hotel 4 stars overall. It was a very nice, clean hotel, with a good breakfast and nice rooms. I'd give the location 3 stars, it's not by the beach, or walkable to much more than a mall and a few restaurants down the road. If you have rented a car for your visit to Punta Del Este (which I recommend), then this is a fine hotel, if you get a good price for your room. They offer you free parking. The rooms are nice and clean, but this is not a 5 star resort.

Middle of the road, very nice and clean, but make sure you are not paying for or expecting a 5 star experience here.

Room Tip: I'd say a higher floor room with view to the pool / Ocean side is probably the nicest.

We stayed in this hotel for only two nights. Our stay in Uruguay was just over two weeks but we spent most of our time in Montevideo visiting family. We would have loved to stay at this hotel longer.

The location is quite good and close to everything. It is a quiet area. The underground parking was a real riot. The entrance was at a 90 degree angle and was a little scary going in and leaving - lucky I was not the driver! The rooms are lovely and bright. Bathrobes and slippers and a turn down service that makes one feel pampered especially after two weeks of visiting and touring. That was much appreciated. The balconies are great with comfortable, stylish chairs and a table. We would have wished for more time to relax and sit out there. The breakfast was absolutely great and had a variety of food and drinks. The only thing lacking as Canadians and Americans have grown accustomed to is waiters coming around for refills of coffee. We have to get our own refills and waiters were scare and only attended to the food table. There was a small gym in the hotel and wished we had more time there. After eating all that delicious Uruguayan food, I would have liked to burn some calories!

Closet space in the rooms are fantastic and there is a safe. We didn't get to use the pool or lounge around outside or downstairs due to lack of time but the outside area looked very inviting and relaxing. We would stay here again.

This hotel is wonderful ... Beautifully decorated, and very clean. It is located in a very hendy part of Punta ... Breakfast is excellent. I'm not sure what those folks complaining about breakfast want. There was a variety of fruits, cereals, yogurt, breads, drinks, etc. very trendy decour, and close to everything. I will most certainly return here soon.

The hotel is modern and rooms comfortable although I felt I was in a private hospital rather than a hotel. The staff use a strongly scented disinfectant everywhere...corridors, breakfast room etc and we found the smell totally overpowering. Breakfast was very average quality. The atmosphere was cold and the some staff friendlier than others. We ate dinner at the nearby AWA Hotel which was great, for the extra money I wish we had gone there. Would not return to this hotel.

Like the last reviewer, please consider the source of this review, North Americans apparently have different expectations of hotels than South Americans. They are not better or worse, just different. The stars given are according to my North American expectations.

Let me begin with the good. Service was excellent. Very helpful and friendly staff, both at the desk and the room. The decor was minimalistic, modern, sleek and attractive. The room was a good size for two, and they have very nice curtains that block out light, which is greatly appreciated and something N. American hotels could learn from. Location was good for us, as we don't need to be right on the beach. However, if you do want to go, it isn't difficult to get there in a short period, especially if you drive or take a cab. The nearby shopping mall was a plus for needed items and quick meals.

Now for the regrettable. The prices in the restaurant were out of line even for Punta del Este. There are too many other restaurants to select from, they just should bring their prices downs because in three days I never saw anyone eating in their dining room. The free breakfast was just okay. Several of the morning pastries were stale, the fruit mostly tasteless, and the coffee pot frequently empty. There were a variety of cold cereals which I didn't sample, but those were mainly for the kids. Overall, not awful, not really good.

The real issues came with the room. While bright and spacious, there are no dressers, and maybe this is intentional but space for your clothing seemed lacking. As usual not enough hangers for your clothes but they did have shelves in the closet for whatever. For us, it was not inviting and went mostly unused.

They have a nice computer desk, but no office like chair, only a very low bench which made any laptop use a joke. It was nearly impossible to type with your handa at eye level. Why offer a desk without an appropriate chair? Also for new hotel, there were not enough electric outlets.

The bathroom had a non functional bidet, no kleenex dispenser, and no washcloths. The latter might be a SA thing, we found the same thing in a different hotel. But for the price, one would think they could offer you at least one washcloth? I do have to disagree with other reviewers on the cleanliness of the room. There was residue on the sink counter I could scrape off with my fingernail, the grout in the bath was discolored, bordering on moldy. The pretty bath fixtures were nice buy hard to figure out, esp. on the bidet. The shower had a half glass enclosure which no matter how we tried ended up flooding the entire bathroom. Therefore after every shower I ended up mopping the floor with one of the limited towels that you are offered. One fresh towel we were given had lipstick on it.

The most disturbing issues we found were the occasional smells that seemed to be coming from the air ducts. On several occasions we could smell "electrical burn" and other times something that bordered on raw sewage. I have no idea what it was. This would come and go.

I was impressed with their consideration for the environment, and the careful use of electricity and keeping laundry to a minimum. Overall, this was a very mixed bag.

We booked this hotel based on its high ranking on trip advisor and the lack of "brand name" hotels in the area. I did not see any American reviewers which worried me from the beginning. I have to say....the hotel is clean... It actually smells like lemon pine sol so strong it's a little overbearing. We paid over $500 a night very last minute. For that I would expect a washcloth, iron and bottle/wine opener in the room. We ordered 4 beers from room service and they arrived without an opener. We asked th to bring...they never did. The next day, I wanted a wine opener to bring a bottle of wine to the beach...they wanted $20 to open the bottle....really??? For a boutique hotel for this price I was disappointed. Very small room with very few amenities. The location is odd. I was suprised to aee very few hotels are on the beach. This is about a 1/2 mile away. Not a taxi town...you need a car. No views. Tonight we move to a suite in the Conrad. I hope that's more in line of what we like. We just left the W in santiago which was awesome. It looks like they are building a Hyatt and trump tower here....I'm not surprised. Great place!! Malibu meets Miami!

Estimada,
Gracias por dejarnos su crítica. Si bien son opiniones de punta del este en general, lo que respecta a nosotros es valioso para mejorar. En primer lugar, debería aclarar que somos un hotel de 4 estrellas no 5, aunque intentemos llegar a ello a través de nuestra calidad de servicios. Respecto a las habitaciones, tienen una media de 32m2 y la suite 46m2, una medida amplia pero entiendo que no todos lo lleguen a considerar amplio y menos a comparación de hoteles de cinco estrellas del primer mundo. Es una tristeza que nuestro bello balneario no haya colmado sus expectativas, espero que algun día lo pueda conocer mejor y estoy segura que se irá con una sonrisa en su rostro. Sin más, espero que haya tenido un sereno regreso a EEUU. Saludos de todo el equipo de Sisai.
