“Extraordinary place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2012 via mobile

We spent two nights on our way from Montevideo to BsAs. This posada is amazing and counts with dramatic views, great pool and beatiful and clean rooms. The owners are really friendly. It is placed just 10 minutes away from Colonia de Sacramento. Great choice!

This is the place to go if you want to get away! It's only a few miles from town, but seems far removed- not that Colonia is a busy city! Andy and Isabella are delightful, and their friendly dogs are great company. We pretty much stayed on the property and relaxed- horseback riding, reading, lounging by the pool. MMMmmm. The food was delicious and the wine was incredible! We went through a bottle at each meal! Wonderful experience.

I stayed here with friends for 4 nights and found it so relaxing. Andy, Isabella and Julia were perfect hosts and were there when we needed something but otherwise left us to 'chillax'. Andy prepared the best G&T I have ever enjoyed, with fresh lemons from his orchard. One evening he gave us a lift to a local restaurant in one of his vintage cars (I have no idea what model it was but it certainly was a treat). They prepared a barbeque with excellent steaks, chicken, meats etc etc.... the food just went on & on and all cooked to perfection. Another evening we enjoyed a raclette (something new to me). Our rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious with fly screens which kept the bugs out! There was a private veranda where we enjoyed the most amazing sunsets. Their two dogs even walked with us to a small beach AND they made sure we got back safely...honestly! It is a beautiful hotel, with amazing people. I really hope to return one day.

My wife and I plus 2 friends stayed here for 4 nights; my only criticism is we should have made it 4 weeks! Andy, Isabella, Julia and above all the dogs and cats made us feel that we were with friends from the moment we arrived. Our little group had 2 adjacent rooms, very private, clean and comfortable. We ate at the guest house 2 of the 4 nights and both occasions were certainly the best meals we had in Uruguay. One night Andi did a fabulous barbeque; in variety and quality enough to feed an army! The other night we had a trditional Swiss raclette; great.
The place is beautifully kept and the pool area very pleasant and relaxing.
Last, but not least, Andi makes a small amount of his own tannat wine; probably the best we tasted. If we return to Uruguay one day then staying here is a must!

This is awesome place to relax, drink mate and enjoy the views! You can rent bikes for free and do some cycling, the scenery is perfect. Rooms are clean, very nicely decorated, swimming pool is more than appealing. The owners are great! I woould strongly recommend the place!

The couple that owns the posada is really nice and we felt they did try hard to make our stay enjoyable. We stayed here for 1 night, which was just too short and I think it placed a lot of strain on the hosts so this won't be allowed in future. We really liked our superior room in the Guest house. We travelled with 2 other couples who shared the suite, which was quite cramped for 4 adults and the room felt a bit more worn compared to our room. The suite offered very little privacy as the bedroom and lounge area were only seperated by a curtain, so considering the supplement for the extra 2 people staying in the suite we thought it would be far better value to have booked separate rooms. The pool is lovely & overall the setting is serene, which is nice and relaxing. Breakfast is fantastic and definitely a highlight.

Note that this is about 10 min drive outside of town and that there is no restaurant on the premises or within easy walking distance - if you want dinner you have to arrange it before hand with the hosts or else you need to have wheels to get you to a place that serves food.

Room Tip: The Superior double rooms in the newer Guesthouse is much better than the suite.

Staying at Posada Gondwana was like staying with friends or family, that just happened to live in Uruguay. The property is wonderful, with vines producing grapes, cattle and horses grazing. If you ignore the palm trees, you might think that you are in Kansas or eastern Montana. The owners/hosts, Andy and Isabella are a rare treat. We had two dinners there with them and other guests, from different countries using multiple languages. The pace is slow, the countryside is beautiful, and the people of Uruguay are warm. We think you would be hard pressed to find a better place to stay!!!
