“Expensive for what they offer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

The hotel is actually good. But staff were not welcoming nor helpful. It's more like if they don't care much about you.
Breakfast was too poor for the price of the hotel. Everyday the same kind of fruits (not too many) and bread. No hot options (eg. eggs or bacon).
It's well located, just one block from the shopping mall (the mall is not really something to look for).
Overpriced when it comes to food and beverage.
Beds were great as the room itself.

Room Tip: They're all about the same, but the ones facing the back of the building are quieter.

We stayed a week and absolutely loved the hotel! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful location and walking distance to great restaurants. The port was close by and so much to see. Hope to stay longer next time. Can't wait to go back to Punta del Estes! We will definitely stay here again!

We stay 3 days with my wife while doing a business trip in Punta del Este. I wanted to be close to the nice area but at the same time close to a road that would allow me to go to the city centre of Maldonado in less than 15 minutes. The hotel was perfectly located between the beach and the commercial area close to a main road.

The hotel seems new. The rooms are big and nice, and they have a lot of quality items but the finishing of some of the walls and covers are not totally perfect. The hotel was not full and there was a lot of noise still so that something to consider as well.

Still, I really like the concept of the hotel, the location and the kindness of the staff. Everyone was very professional and friendly and we really had a nice stay.

We stayed here for 1 night while in Punta Del Este. Thought the staff were fabulous and friendly. Think the hotel is missing the fine tuning of other expensive hotels - ie a kettel in the room, milk in the fridge etc.
The pool was really nice and warm and relaxing. Wifi signal and speed was really good.
Breakfast was pretty average. We had an early flight to catch and they don't do breakfast until 8am. However, we were rushed and breakfast still wasn't ready at 815am. Normally it wouldn't matter but if you're an expensive state of the art hotel then you need to run a tight ship! The bread was taken out of the fridge leftover from yesterday. I would've expected fresh bresh.
They also ordered us a taxi for 745 when we asked for 815. Whilst this was a misunderstanding and error from the hotel, we still had to pay the expensive taxi from 745 to get to the airport. Not a good end to what I thought was a great stay. If breakfast was awesome then it'd get 5 stars.
Also, we only paid 90US by booking through expedia. The hotel quoted 129US when we walked in off the street. So we went outside, booked online, and came back later :-)

i stayed there last week for 6 days .got a 110 us per night rate. was not bad FOR URUGUAYAN STANDARDS but certainly not a 650 us a day values (that s what they charge in high season).
first of all, nice atmosphere, nice girls and guys in the receptioon, very relaxed and kind.
i had room 309, last floor with a nice view to pedragosa sierra street and the green forest. nice.
very expensive extras thoughs, very stingy country. they nickel and dime you for everything. a can of coke out of the mini bar is 4 us !!!! 4 !!!!!!!!!!! , and the rest even worse :)
they have a coffee shop ,viewpoint its name, which was even closed saturdays at 5 pm. pretty dead the whole place, off-season. like a 10 minute walk from punta shopping which i a pitiful mall which would not survive a week in the us, and 15 min from the conrad casino hotel, another miserywhere they nickel and dime you for anything.
new hotel, opened in january. nice white wood laminate floors, designer beds, sofa and 32 inch tv , not digital but at least direct tv.
little kitchen with microwave and water heater inside.
had to ask for shampoo and soap every second day. they are sooooooooooo stingy. really made a bad impression.
i asked for an iron to iron 2 shirts , they told me to iron in their laundry because they were afraid i might burn their precious sheets. so they really think you are a clown. you are stupid enough too pay so you are stupid enough to burn the room ???
pretty bad and miserable, no ?
same thing the breakfast.
buffet but in a terrace without walls, just a gazebo with pvc coverings , soooooooooo cold.
a 4 to 5 star hotel ??? good joke folks :)
juice almost non existing, some ham that smelt bad, some nice lomo and boring kellogs flakes .
coffee the worst ever, even worse than star bucks !!!
overall a good price for uruguay which is for whatever shady reason theeeeeeeeeeeee most expensive country after australia i know . get a special on hotwire or expedia !!!
this hotel is still by far better than all the 80 us stuff like tanger or marbella hotel !!! at least it is new and not shabby . just their stingy attitude is :) nothing personal though.the country is pretty nice and so are its people !
by the way they had a nice heated ,i guess, pool !!!

Room Tip: i had room 309 whch had a nice open forest view !

Stayed here recently on my Punta Del Este trip. I got a room in March for around $100 a night, and found it to be a great value. The hotel design was built very detailed and I was very impressed. The location is quiet, so hopefully that's what you're looking for. A short cab or long walk will get you to town. Pool was great, service was great, and I would love to stay again!

Room Tip: I saved $100 on a two night stay by quoting their advertised online price from a travel agency. Goog...

The hotel just opened in January. Most of the cab drivers don't know where it is yet. Rooms are good size with a kitchenette (microwave, sink, small fridge, counter and stools), sofa and table, king bed with TV facing. We upgraded to a porch which was generous with chairs and a table.
This place is going for trendy, with square cups for breakfast coffee (hard to drink out of), lots of stone and chrome, and other natural fibers. It's nicely done.
About 1/2 mile to west side beaches, closer to east. There's a heated pool. Breakfast is included. It's standard, cold fare. Nothing special.
When we arrived, they did not have the reservation we'd made with Expedia the day before because they were having computer problems. It was off-season (March) so they had space and were very apologetic. We had internet access in our room that night but the following evening, the internet disappeared again.
