Like Kim Bowen said, we were here for work back in February. I scouted this hotel ahead of time before choosing where to book my group of 14 associates during a 4 day break in the middle of our month long commercial shoot.
I was wary of the property because the reviews here were so violently opposed. Yeah...there are bugs in the pool...it's in the middle of a beach and a forest...that's what bugs do. Our power went in and out one night, making our A/C units beep with each off and on. So? Really? You're in a quiet, clean, luxurious, small property, in Jose Ignacio Uruguay. If that's your take away you need a longer vacation and another massage in the beach hut.
Mara, the proprietor at Casa Suaya could not have been sweeter and more accommodating to us. The bartenders & servers are cool. Most of the staff speak English. They do things by hand here. You never have to sign a bill. They just handwrite your chit and keep track for you. No key cards here. Good old metal keys in wood doors. But the rooms are not provincial or rustic. White linens, polished concrete floors, A/C units with remotes that do their jobs, beautiful 14' long drapes with black out curtains, open air showers. The Suites have kitchenettes, fridges in the smaller rooms, and the closets are the biggest hotel closets I've ever had the pleasure of utilizing to live unpacked.
Don't miss the Asado nights!! More meat cooked with love than you could possibly stomach.
And be sure to lay in the grass, just out of reach of the light from the campfire. You'll see more stars and your place in them than us city folk are almost ever blessed to witness.
You don't have to leave the grounds, but you could. Shopping in Jose Ignacio is elegant. And if you miss a meal at La Huella you may as well turn in your Foodie Membership card right now.
(*The photos are from my all access scout to make sure my well-traveled people would enjoy their rooms on their time off. I agree with Howell when he said, "I like me here!")
