“Wonderful Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

My wife and I visited El Capullo in January and found it to be not only romantic but a beautifully renovated and charming hotel. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable.The staff was attentive and the owners Tom and Kelli are terrfic hosts, well traveled and quite interesting. We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a unique getaway!

My parents and I spent the weekend in Colonia while celebrating my father's 80th birthday. The property is well maintained and run, the staff very courteous. We had an ample triple room with a well equppied full bathroom. The hotel has been recentely renovated and there is ongoing construction/expansion right next door ( that did not affect our stay at all). The decor is fresh, classic modern, and inviting at the same time. There is a great back patio with a pool and covered deck. Everything there is to see in the city is within a short walk. Is worthwhile renting a golf court only if you are staying for more than one day and plan to visit the Rambla (beaches) and Plaza de Toros.

We toured every Hotel (and Hostel) in town, and by far this is the best place to stay in Colonia! Immaculate, impeccable green design, friendly and accomodating staff, and fabulous garden/pool area. Parilla grill brings people together, plently of comfy places to hang out during the day with full sun or shade. A/C and hot water were endless ,down comforters on the beds with cotton sheets, and very rapid laundry service if you require it. Breakfast was top of the line with fresh juice, yogurt, cereal, meats and cheese, homemade breads and jams, and endless fresh coffee. Very tranquil and quiet place! Close to everything in town! Romantic, laid back, and fun! Did we mention the staff was fabulous???

Room Tip: We had a room by the pool area...excellent! But after touring whole facility we would say every roo...

After having lived in and travelled around Argentina for over 6 months, having stayed in many hotels, I just took my first trip to Uruguay and stayed at El Capullo. Everything was excellent, but I have to mention two things in particular. The bed was *AMAZING*, the softest most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, and the service was exceptional. We missed breakfast due to the time difference, and they went out of their way to serve us a huge private breakfast. Due to that, we missed our check out, which was no problem at all. The staff is super friendly, and I will definitly come back here in the future.
