Really beautiful view. It was a shame that I went with a city tour and did not have enough time to come in.

Really worth a stop. The building is gorgeous and unusual. Tour the premises and view his art as well as buy it. The restaurant was closed when we were there but looks lovely.

The Casapueblo itself is larger than you think but the area open to the public is probably smaller than you think. Nevertheless it is beautiful, interesting, even for those not artistically inclined. Casapueblo is actually 30 min bus ride (and then a 1km alk from bus stop) from of Punta del este, heading towards Montevideo. Therefore bear this in mind when planning your day.

I have to be honest - I knew nothing about the artist before checking in. I know a lot more now…as a jaded international business traveller - hotels on the whole bore me…I was on holiday in Uruguay - out of season, and a friend told me to go - "not the best hotel in the world - but an experience". The hotel is something akin to going down the hole in 'Alice in Wonderland" meets Gaudi. The food and service are nondescript - the rooms and the hotel are an experience in themselves. For me - sunset on my balcony…have yet to experience anything to beat it...
