Found this hotel driving around the coast in Punta del Este the first week of Spring. Noticed the lobby was under renovation, always a good sign. Was shown two rooms, the second room had a balcony and nice view of the ocean. Bedding was totally new, very plush and comfortable. Wifi worked well. Bathroom appears to have not yet been... More

We were rather unlucky... it rained for three days in a row out of the four we had planned to spend there and only got sunshine just as we were leaving. In spite of this, we had a very relaxing stay at the hotel. The receptionist was extremely kind and always ready to give us a helping hand. Taxis to... More

This hotel is one of the cheapest in Punta del Este and offers you just enough if you don't need luxuries. Rooms are clean, pool is clean and nice, food is OK for breakfast, location is very good and price is the best. They even make reservations without credit card, it's my favorite to stay in Punta del Este when... More

It is a very cheap way to visit Punta, which concentrates a lot of wealthy families of South Americans. Therefore you cannot expect a five star hotel. The major inconvenience is that the 1st floor rooms face the street and one can not be at ease without pulling down blinders. The same goes for the toilets which have doors facing... More

Rooms smell terrible and have old furniture. Lobby is antique. Hotel staff is very rude and not helpful. Cleaning staff would start making noises at 6AM daily and were loud. Shower in bathroom had cold water 2 out of the 3 nights we stayed there. Wi-fi doesn't work. All in all, a horrible stay - wouldn't recommend this property to... More

Stayed for one night, ended up there because of the reasonable price. The room was ok: nice bed, so-so bathroom (no door at shower means wet & slippery floor. We didn't try the breakfast because of the cost: didn't seem to be worthwhile. The big surprise came at about 11PM, when the power went out and the room went black.... More

Cozy hotel, refurbished, spacious room, clean, quiet. Tranquil neighbourhood, nice bucolic atmosphere. Only the shower wansnt flowing strong enough, and not very hot, and the coffee at breakfast was not good, but regardless of that, Id recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the hotel for a week in january. The place is nice but looks bad because is not clean enough and the staff service is poor. Near from the beach I find the location ideal but you need the car to move in the night . Breakfast costs 10 dolars and is really awful !
