“Extremely average”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

I found this hotel desperately average, to be brutally honest - it certainly attempts to be a stylish business hotel but the cost-cutting at every turn means that it falls short...

Admittedly, just over $100/night isn't a bad price for a half-decent, modern hotel, but I can't help feeling that most international business travellers will be left feeling somewhat underwhelmed.

The rooms are pretty basic: plastic flooring, cheap pillows & mattresses, small low-pressure shower heads, no shower gel, no black-out blinds/curtains, wardrobe with only one sliding door (so, one side is always open? really?! why?!).

Dinner options were very limited (probably the shortest menu I've seen in a hotel of this type), breakfast was barely adequate: the scrambled eggs were nice, but why no toast (or, even sliced bread)? Every bread roll and pastry was well past its best. The fruit was similarly unappealing. The staff were more interested in watching the TV in the bar than providing any sort of service.

Facilities: gym - small; spa - hot tub felt a bit grubby; 3 outdoor swimming pools? Well, let's be honest: it's one pool split into 3 sections...

Overall, it's adequate but it could all be so much better.

Great quiet and relaxing place to stay near the airport. We had an early flight out of MVD and chose to stay at this hotel. Reception was friendly and professional. Our room was large, clean and modern, with a beautiful view of the pool and countryside and a nice cozy bed with lots of soft pillows (with a comforter!). This was also the only hotel during our four week trip with small bath towels! The hotel isn't close to any restaurants or entertainment, so the free shuttle to some dining options in the Carassco area was very convenient.

My only critiques are that the grout around the bath tub was full of black mildew and some minor stains on the duvet cover...pretty gross, but below par housekeeping seems like a trend here during our stay in Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay. The front desk agent at 5am (who just woke up from a nap), also provided my husband with horrible instructions to the airport, which nearly caused us to miss our flight. Besides this, we still enjoyed our stay and would love to return to this hotel if we need to be close to MVD.

Excellent attention!
It is quite far from Montevideo (you should go with a car or rent one), but the place where is located is quiet and with lot of green.
The food at the restaurant is excellent, but the menu is too short.
The pool is awesome.
I highly recommend this hotel.

This was one of the nicest hotels we stayed at during our travels through South America. The majority of the staff was great. There was one gentlemen at the front counter who could care less about helping us out. The breakfast was one of the better ones we had. My only gripe with this hotel was its location. It was about a 30-45 min commute into the city of Montevideo.

It is located outside Montevideo, so bring your car if you are planning to visit the city (they said there's a shuttle service but haven't used it).
Food is really good and not expensive, so you don't have to move our for lunch or dinner.
Complimentary breakfast is great!
But the best part of the hotel is the swimming pool and its park! Enjoy an amazing view while you relax in the pool.
Rooms are clean and nice, but small.
There is also a complimentary gym, ping pong table, and a poker table.
I'm gonna stay there again for sure!

Worderful hotel! The location is the only unconvenient for tourists, because it's 35 minutes far from the city and a taxi costs about 40 dolars. The hotel area is really beautiful and quiet, perfect for relaxing. Beds are veery comfortable and gastronomy very tasty. The only problem during my stay was that extra towels were missing, because the hotel was full, but I think this was not a big problem.
