I've been travelling throughout Uruguay for over a year now, but this is the first time I've chosen to stay at one of the government-run Casino hotels. What I found was first class accommodations, excellent service, and especially good food. The hotel room was spacious - plenty of room for the king-sized bed - bright and airy,and perfectly clean. Although I didn't watch it very much at all, there was a flat-screen TV and a small frig. The bathroom was modern and also spacious: an over-sized shower, bidet, toilet, and sink with a roomy counter. A good supply of soft, fluffy towels. All the hot water I needed all the time. And the food in the restaurant was reasonably priced and really tasty and well-presented. We enjoyed a deli platter of cold cuts and cheeses that was exceptional! Their beef cutlet "milanesa" was one of the best I've had in Uruguay - and huge, The breakfast buffet was delicious and the service very attentive without being suffocating. We stayed for three nights and by breakfast time on the second day, our server remembered how my husband liked his coffee and how I liked my tea. The price of $150 per night is a bit high for this part of the country, but it was definitely worth every penny. I was able to do my work well because I was well-rested, well-fed, and very comfortable!
