Upon arrival I was extremely disappointed, (horrified really), having experienced same star resorts at less or equal cost in Asia, Europe, the US incl Hawaii, etc. So I thought this would be on par or better with some of the great beach destination resorts. Bottom line is go with your eyes open and mentally do two things: (1) ignore the cost. Try not to think about the luxury it would have bought you at other worldwide destinations. $750 was beyond outrageous given the shabby facility but apparently market price for here; (2) set your expectations that it's a 2 star hotel at most based on global standards, and really more like a motel as opposed to a hotel (certainly not a resort ). Once you've psyched yourself with these two thoughts, it has some nice plusses: Great location, staff that really try to be helpful, great air conditioning (appears to be rare here). Final point: many of the other hotels seem to be rundown also. With all the choices for travel, Punta del Este is not a place I 'd recommend.
