As a Canadian in Uruguay for the first time, Tsitsicamma Inn was a good place to stay. It's a short stroll from the beach, stores, restaurants, banks, laundry, cinema and numerous other services.
It is operated by a couple from South Africa and their children, raised in the Atlantida. In addition to English and Spanish, they can help in many languages.
As a single man, I just had a small room. I found the price reasonable, my room was cleaned each day and I had a private bathroom with shower.
WiFi is available. It worked well with my Smartphone in the common areas and in my room. The family gives good advice with communication and transportation questions.
Bus stops for Montevideo,the airport and Punta del Este are nearby.
You can hang handwashed items to dry in courtyard. There is reasonably priced laundry service (usually requires one day)
near the Inn.
The beach is many miles long and would take a lifetime to explore. Tsitsicamma is just two blocks from the beach. It makes a great base from which to enjoy everything from stunning sunsets to natural sand dunes.
I spent two weeks at Tsitsicamma Inn. During this time, I studied Spanish language and Uruguayan culture with Spanish Uruguay, a small school with locations in Atlantida and Montevideo.
I found Tsitsicamma Inn responsive to requests. If you have questions or special needs, go to website and contact them.
Tsitsicamma is a word from South Africa, meaning paradise between sea and earth. Sounds like Atlantida!
My stay at Tsitsicamma Inn has helped me gain a positive impression of this special corner of Uruguay.
