Typically we stay in the Mare Nostrum (which is superbly adequate) however we had reason to celebrate and decided to push the boat out and stop in the Ushuaia (Club) Hotel for five nights mid Sept.
Due to the cost to stay and the extra's we can see why this hotel gets mixed reviews, however when you get passed that, this hotel offers something special you'll remember for many years to come. This is a striking, quirky hotel, with funky decor and modern design - the rooms have a contemporary lighting system (you could set the ambiance according to how you are feeling), plenty of space to get ready, funky drench shower, flat screen TV, mini bar/fridge (yes expensive, but used to store our own water), very comfortable beds, large sun lounger on the balcony and black out curtains for the early sunshine. Cleaned daily, towels changed daily at worst. One of the best rooms we have stayed in.
Security were friendly and all the hotel staff were happy to help, just make your wrist band visible and you are ushered to the front of any queues into the club or tower.
Breakfast was great, pink cava, prosecco, scrambled eggs with truffles, salmon, bacon or plain, caviar, sausages, bacon, fresh fruits, cheeses, meats, vegetables, salad’s fresh orange juice, bottled water, smoothies with Redbull, all kinds of breads, cakes, and pastries loads to choose from, you won’t go hungry.
The club gets very busy which adds to the atmosphere, we found space at the fringes of the stage, which are close to the bars. Expect to pay €25-€30 for two drinks. DJ's were great and with Space over the road, you are a stone’s throw from continuing into the early hours. Each night is themed so when you wake up in the morning the set has changed to incorporate that day’s club night, Ants, Nervo Nation, Luciano (closing party done).
The loungers on the beach are lovely and big - more like beds and you have waiter service. The pool offers plenty of beds and good music, if you want it a little quieter then head round the back to the swim up pool rooms - again plenty of beds and space.
We ventured up the tower for Sasha, however it was really busy, which made getting drinks and using the toilet very time consuming - it would help it they put another bar up there, or had people walking round selling bottled drinks.
We really enjoyed our stay and take fond memories away from staying in this plush, trendy hotel. We did walk around Playa and have noticed that other hotels have had a modern 'cool' revamp/facelift so maybe Ushuaia has made local hoteliers review their offering, which will benefit all of us.
We would love to stay here again so best get saving!
