Nestled among the palm trees a few blocks away in the heart of Punta del Este, AWA offered a surprisingly good alternative to the extraordinary expensive luxury hotels in the area. When I booked a room there a few months before the trip, I was expecting to come solo to see a friend, but at the last moment my husband came along. We were just at several fabulously expensive and luxury hotels in other parts of South America and when we drove to AWA he was not impressed. But the rooms were pre-paid and other hotels were booked, so he decided to "grin and suffer". Well, while the rooms are small, very small, the staff is VERY helpful and the breakfast is outrageously good and inexpensive. The bathroom was small, but equally clean and modern enough. Nothing in Punta is particularly cheap, and we have looked at the hotels charging upward of $1500 per night, but for a long weekend, I loved the fact that I didn't have to think at all about how much our hotel cost, particularly when as is common in Punta you are rolling in from the night out closer to breakfast than to midnight. The staff at AWA was very helpful - the housekeeper managed to press my linen dress for a party I was attending in about 5 minutes flat, and she did a perfect job. If you care about a spacious room and a grand bath, this might not be for you, but for a nice, clean room with a modern bath for a very reasonable price AWA is an excellent choice.
