Deep in the forest behind Montoya beach, easy to find once making the reservation and receiving directions from the friendly staff. Upon being greeted was offered a special cocktail which was received gratefully. The menu, though limited in choices was very good and gave options for both myself and my Vegetarian wife. Loving the seafood available in Punta Del Este,... More

This is a great rustic place set in the woods, that young travelers need to find. From Bouland Inn I surfed locally and went to great places like Jose Ignacio and Rocha. As soon as I saw the place, I thought to myself "Why go anywhere else, when this is a cool place and interesting people gather here." Highly recommend... More

We stayed here after looking at a couple of different hotel options in the area. I would confess that it is not that easy to find a nice and cheap place as Punta del Este is very popular in high season, so it was at first very encouraging to find Bouland Inn and we were excited to arrive. The location... More

We received a very warm welcome by the staff, very friendly and will do anything to make you feel at home. The huge garden in the woods is very nice to relax and to be in contact with nature and animals. The location is perfect, is in la Barra, in the woods but near to cool places to go dancing... More

I came a couple of years back with friends to Bouland (punta del este as it was), and I see from the pictures that Fonchi has continued building accomodation and extending the existing facilities from salvage. What you see is what you get, its somewhere to feel at one with the beautiful environment forget immaculately disinfected rooms with mod-cons. This... More

I came to live to Maldonado about 5 months ago, and thats when I visited Bouland for the first time. I had heard a lot about it from friends. Everyone I knew, that had been there, talked about how nice it is, and the good times they have there. I must say, upon my first arrival, I immediately felt its... More

Loved this place. Bouland is a quiet and relax place to stay, surrounded by nature and ecofriendly constructions. It's an amazing property and laid back alternative, rates are not over priced as many other hostels around the area. I found it to have all the things that are important to me. A nice quiet room with a forest right outside... More

to begin with, i was recommended this place from some friends which they met Alfonso, and told me he was a great guy who knows how to enjoy life every second every single day of his life, and part of this was because of the environmet he created with his own hands. The place is full of positive energy, good... More

I was a little surprised to see the other two negative reviews about this little gem in Punta Del Este. We arrived in Punta del Este and we also decided to give this place a go after we had searched around in the local hostels and found them to be ridiculously over priced and pretty tacky. So, Bouland was where... More

We decided to take the plunge and book a room at Pousada Bouland. They apparently now also call it 'Pulperia No Seas Malo' which I guess is a result of trying to further lure guests into booking overpriced accommodation there. We were greeted by the owners in Punta del Este, who took us to our "villa". In fact, it was... More

Bouland, Manager at Bouland Uruguay, responded to this review

Bouland Inn is a rustic eclectic construct from Modern Green Building techniques, set in the woods. We are very similar in spirit to the pioneer Hawaiian surfer adventurers of the early 50's, but with modern features. We've created a casual, playful environment, perfect as a congregation point for surfers and adventurers. The rooms only have hot water, and we don't... More
