“A wonderful experience with extraordinary Hosts!”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

During a visit to Buenos Aires, we had considered a visit to Uruguay, but were not sure where to look in Colonia de Sacramento. We were saved when Madi Lang of BA Concierge told us about a delicious bungalow, a ten minute ride outside of Colonia. We decided to visit for three days and what a treat!
We were met at the Ferry Terminal by Mario – one of the owners and builders of the inn – who gave us a tour of Colonia and a sense of history of the area.
He had not prepared us, however, for the beauty and tranquility of La Casa de Limoneros as it is nestled in a lemon grove with thousands of fruit-laden trees. Mario and his partner Sergio have built a very traditional hacienda with all of the creature comforts that one could want – including a beautiful swimming pool – while incorporating fascinating items from Uruguayan history in the construction of the building.
As hosts, they lead an excellent Team and everyone made us feel most welcome.
While we were there, we elected to have two dinners ‘en casa’ and were very pleased with the culinary creations that Mario created in the kitchen – not the least of which were his wonderful cold soups! All very enjoyable with some Uruguayan wines that he selected for us.
Overall, a wonderful three days with some interesting people in a beautiful location - we hope to return someday!

We had a great stay at Limoneros. The posada is a very cool and charming building that is only 10 yrs old but feels like it has been there 100 yrs. Mario and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The family style meals were delicious and a lot of fun. It is a lovely oasis from which to explore Colonia and Carmelo.

I'll start with the hospitality of the owners and staff. Both owners were extremely welcoming and charming. Both have their own separate businesses so they aren't always around, but easily accessible if needed. The house staff is VERY friendly and always willing to please the guests. One of the owners speaks fluent English. The place is about 10km from Colonia so a car is a must. However, I saw the owners shuttling guests back and forth to the town and/or nearby beaches. The property has seven or eight rooms, two on the second floor. One of the rooms is occupied by the owners, the other is for guests. I highly recommend it for the quaint balcony overlooking the premises, lakes, lemon orchards, and eventually the river. The rooms are very spacious and charmingly decorated (as is the entire house). The air conditioning could be better. The pool is very large and sparkling clean. The breakfast included in the price is plentiful, fruit, buns, marmalades, cold cuts, yogurts, juice, etc. Nearby river beaches offer long stretches of sand with nobody in sight. Great for skinny-dipping. My only two minor objections is that the website says they accept credit cards (which they don't) and there isn't a single TV set on the premises. That's OK, but it should be mentioned somewhere. Wi-Fi is accessible and free (we watched several movies on Netflix). Highly recommendable and will definitely return.

Room Tip: The premises has two second-floor rooms, one is occupied by the owners, the other is for guests. I...

La Casa de los Limoneros really exceeded our expectations. The reallity is a million times better than what you see in the pictures. The service was excellent, and the home made breakfast in the beautiful green house was amazing. It felt like being on an estate. Try the Parillada!!!! When we went there, the owner, Sergio, cooked the bbq, and it was fantastic! We will definately go back!

We loved staying in this gorgeous house in the Uruguayan countryside. The grounds are stunning and lying by the pool overlooking the lemon groves is incredibly relaxing. At night, the sound of thousands of frogs croaking by the ponds lends the place a magical atmosphere. The staff of Javier, Carolina and Raquel are very friendly and welcoming and although there is no restaurant at night you can have an asado, which is far better food than anything you can get in very pricy Colonia 10 kms away. We had the best morcilla we have ever tasted – scrummy. The staff always tell you in advance how much things cost - so there are no surprises later on. The house is decorated in a rustic style and you feel you are staying in a good friend’s home. Perhaps the bed-linen could be a bit more luxurious for the price of the room. However, having said that, we look forward to our next visit. English is not spoken but why should it be - we're in Uruguay after all!

My husband and I were really excited about coming to stay here. It seemed like it was going to be great. Unfortunately, we left feeling let down by the whole experience. The staff are very nice- but be warned that they do not speak a word of english- not that I expect them to be fluent- but when you are running a hotel that caters to tourists from around the world- it would be wise to perhaps keep that in mind. The grounds are lovely, as is the casa- but be warned that the mosquitoes are some of the worst I have ever seen! You cannot even take a walk without being eaten alive- so don't be charmed by the photos of the pool- because you couldn't sit out there even if you cover yourself in deet! The room was nice- but the shutters were filthy and the walls are PAPER thin. As the casa is quite far from town, you are pretty much forced to eat in house. We asked about the cost of meals and wine, but the staff were not sure of these prices- until of course we were checking out! A plate of tapas with some bread is $15 (US) and dinner is $30 (US) each which does not even include a glass of wine- and is the exact same every night. Word to the wise- DON'T BOTHER!!! There are loads of other places to go and stay for much better prices.

La Casa de los Limoneros is my favorite spot when I travel to Argentina, I always keep 4 days for Colonia Uruguay and go to this incredible posada. It is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy nature. Surrounded by the most beautiful lemon orchards, and incredible landscapes, and just minutes away from the old city of Colonia! It is esy to travel from Buenos Aires, just 1 hr away by ferry, and an excellent break from the city life.
