My husband and I stayed at La Posada for 3 nights in April, which are the autumn months in Uruguay. We had the entire hotel all to ourselves for the first evening. Punta del Este was very very quiet this time of year and as such there weren't many dining options available to us; most establishments were closed mid-week (we ate many a chivito). Our host at Posada did his best however to help us find places that were open and although we were the only people there, someone was always at the front desk. Breakfasts were stupendous; we ate fresh fruit and eggs by the pool overlooking the ocean just a stone's throw from the beach. I loathe the term barefoot chic, but love enjoying the atmosphere of a barefoot chic establishment :) This hotel is the best example of it I have ever seen. They knew when to serve us and when to leave us alone.
The only problem I had was that although there was only one other couple staying on the premises we were put two doors down on the same floor as them. Although we made friends with our vacation cohorts and had a lovely time, the quietness made us feel like we had to whisper and tip-toe around our room. It would've been nice if they had put a bit more distance between us...They could've upgraded us! All and all it was great. Loved the bon fire they built us, the attention they paid us, the privacy they gave us, the LOCATION cannot be beat but it fell short of spectacular on that one point. We would definitely definitely return during busier months
