The Awa Boutique and Design is a great option in Punta del Este. The cost/benefit is amazing. Everything is great at this hotel. The rooms are big enough, the restaurant is very good and the building is beautiful. It's located very close to the city's hot zone.

Well located and looking really as a boutique design. The prices in winter, of course, are better than summer. US $ 65,00 vs US $ 350,00. The worse for me was the bathroom, absolutely small and uncomfortable. The breakfast is also regular. But I will choose Awa again in my next business travel.

AWA Hotel is a classic modern boutique style hotel. Location is ok, just 5" minutes away from Brava beach and two blocks away from Roosevelt Av. Rooms are middle size, bed is really comfortable in the deluxe suite, amenities are also ok. Bathroom is pretty small. Breakfast is served for free till 11PM, room service is also a good option....

Romantic atmosphere, calm.... good located and clean! A little bit on the expensive side, as everything else in Punta del Este... but would return again to this charm place to stay for a while. Breakfast could be improved with mashed eggs and expresso coffee. They could also offer a free bike, instead of (expensive) rented ones. Other than that, would... More

It is a lovely hotel, but the pool isn't up to much. Too little space. Thing is, it is a fair walk to the beach aswell.

We thought this hotel was convenient to a number of good restaurants and we did not mind walking to the beach. If you are staying with a car it is probably better - they will give you chairs and an umbrella to take to the beach but you would really need a car for that. Rooms are nice and clean.... More

A boutique hotel should be unique...that uniqueness can be in some small touch, a location, or an attitude about service. Awa does a fantastic job on the latter. The location is good (close to the mall). The rooms are nice (although I would have preferred a bigger bed than a twin). But...the attention to service is unrivaled. And...the restaurant is... More
