La Casa de los Limoneros is a great place to stay, the ideal location ... uruguayan country side ("campo"), by the side of the Rio de la Plata, but not ON the Rio de la Plata (it can get too windy), beautiful swimming pool surrounded by ... yes, lemmons.
It is not a must, but i strongly suggest you have a car with you. Exiting the port of Colonia, serious rental companies, will rent you a car for very reasonable prices. I think two blocks up, there is a local Punta Cana rental, where I always got a wonderful car (Golf, Polo) for very reasonable prices, on daily basis, or weekly basis.
Why do I suggest a car? In order to travel to the City of Colonia, visit the Barrio Historico, eat in some wonderful restaurants, and go back to the country side, have breakfast in the morning in the peaceful surrounding.
Now, La Casa de los Limoneros is close to Route # 21 (very good road); if you go north 60 KM, you'll hit Carmelo, a kind of very laid back uruguayan town where you can eat in the meat restaurant in the plaza.
If you go east 5-10 KM, you'll get to Colonia, and from there you can either enjoy the city or travel even more east, via Route # 1, the route to Montevideo. You can turn right in Santa Ana, and eat in the stone built Hotel, you can stop by in Colonia Valdense and drive towards the river. If you get hungry, the restaurant close to the filling station, is excellent, and the prices are very more than reasonable.
Go back to the La casa de los Limoneros ... that should be your base. You can ask Mario or Sergio for a special meal, walking through the gardens is fantastic.
One important piece of information: it is not possible to check this in advance, but in the high summer season, Dec-Jan-Feb, could be hot, but the worse, mosquitos could be a very unpleasant company; they can appear when the sun sets, and make your life miserable.
