I would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone. Based on quality of service, which was very professional and dedicate, and the quality of the premises and rooms. The hotel restaurant is amazing, not only is beautiful and trendy but the food is delicious. Breakfast was lovely but I would have splash on something hot like scramble eggs or any other hot snacks, for us there were too many sweet snacks that I am not very fond of at breakfast time.
The wifi was not that great unfortunately, it kept switching on and off, so it was quite frustrating as we had some work to do!
Overall I found this hotel exceptional!!

This hotel was great! The first time that I was in Punta del Este, I had a terrible experience with a different hotel. I actually looked at this hotel for my first visit but in the summer it is higher priced and usually full. This place was clean, comfortable and elegant. The staff was friendly and helpful. I had dinner in the restaurant and it was pricey, but good. The breakfast every morning was a nice variety and tasty. The location was great as it was near the mall and several restaurants, but it isn't close to the beach if that is your primary reason for visiting.

A very service orientated boutique hotel. I enjoyed staying here.

It has been renovated and the rooms are nice but the bathrooms are still a bit dated. The food was great and all the staff spoke good english which helps a lot.

Its a bit of a walk to the main areas and beaches and if you after a beach holiday this might not be the best choice. The upside of that is its a very relaxed place to stay.

I would stay again.

The Staff, all of them, including the little cafe,was exceptional. When there I fell ill and the hotel staff brought in a Nurse Practitioner and an ENT at no cost for my assessment. They were good and the plant extract meds were excellent and all at no cost. The message is about service. Further the food in the cafe was presented well, served under a remarkable wine list and everyone who worked there was warm and friendly. Unexpected.

I was there in the off season, May... the fall. Punta was evacuated, empty but very comfortable and all services available. No crowds and a nice vacation window for friends and family without huge prices and a half million pushy tourists!.

This hotel is away from the water, and offers a residential retreat from the beach-festive sort. It is small, simple, with English-speaking and attentive staff and attention to detail like iPod dock, American plugs, mini cinema, small restaurant that serves a great breakfast buffet, pool & spa amenities. It is about a twenty minute stroll to the beach, about 40 minutes from old town. This is made down a paved stretch of boardwalk. Renting bikes from the hotel to explore would be perfect. A cab will run you USD $10+. The only gripe I have is that the room walls are thin, so we were an unfortunate audience to the mid 90s karaoke couple next door. The hotel staff tries to remedy the situation, but to be fair, I think it was less the neighbor's volume and tone deafness and more the lack of insulation between us. So in high season, when the party gets started, paying over $300/nt would make this a poor choice. But then again, who goes to PdE in high season to sleep? We would stay there again.

From the complimentary glass of champagne upon arrival to the generous (and free) late check out, our stay at Awa was perfect in every way. Located in a clean, quiet and beautiful neighborhood and just minutes from the beach, shopping mall, and grocery store, anything you need is within steps. Breakfast is excellent with plenty of fresh fruit, but our favorite part was the sauna, jacuzzi and complimentary 30 min massage by the very talented Cecilia. After riding 150 kms on bicycle, Awa hotel was a much needed and highly anticipated place to relax. The staff was always helpful and catered to our every need. The prices are fair and I'd happily stay at Awa during any future visit to Punta del Este.

We stayed at Awa Boutique hotel for a week and had the best service, food and comforts since commencing travel in South America back in late 2011. This hotel has it all! The rooms are tastefully designed, comfortable and well appointed. Because we came after Easter, we were offered a fabulous discount that allowed us to upgrade to a suite and included two massages each..the best deep tissue we have had in a long time! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they made sure the steam bath was ready before our massages, that coffee was delivered to our suite every morning in double quick time, that all sight seeing and directions were marked clearly on maps before we set out for the day. The restaurant is first class, beautifully designed and run by a team you would expect to find in a 5 star international hotel. The menu is well balanced with meals to suit all appetites. We loved all the pastry miniature treats the chef served every morning. You could sample a variety of wonderful tastes without being weighed down. The wine cellar stocks Uruguay's best along with other South American favourites. Dinner on Saturday night is a must with local entertainment, great food and a gorgeous ambient setting. My husband planned a delivery of flowers on this night and I couldn't believe how willing the staff were to get involved with the surprise and photos to capture the moment. Thanks Awa for making our stay in Punta Del Este so memorable!

Room Tip: Quiet rooms are located furtherest from reception.
