A cross between an Italian trulli and a sandcastle, it's like nothing you'll see elsewhere. Much of the artwork is Picasso-like and colorful. A fun visit, if a small venue.

Simply stunning. A must see if you are in the Punta del Este area. Go there for the sunset. My only wish is that we had access to more of the property for exploring, but I understand because if I went as a hotel guest I would not care for so many people walking through.

Definitely go see this place. Yeah, they charge a bit much, but the place is beautiful. The architecture is Gaudi meets Greek isles, and the art reminds me of Picasso. It all makes for great photos.

We had been to Casapueblo before and it has an amazing view and impressive architecture. This time we went around the museum with more attention and it was very interesting. The documentary that plays in the media room is worth sitting down for 20 minutes.

This hotel is a unique, sightseeing interest built by a famous artist. It has a museum attached to view the history. Our room was very spacious with a balcony overlooking the Atlantic. It is best to have a car to take advantage of all of the shopping, eating, sea lion tours, etc. Area food fresh from the sea. Great experience.

The view is very beautiful and it is worth the visit! The best place in Punta to watch the sunset... but be prepared to find it a little crowded. You can either buy the museum ticket, where there is a belvedere, or you can go to their restaurant at the base and consume something. The food and the service are... More

It was about 350 pesos for us both to go in and we got there by the local bus from the Punta bus station. Ask the driver to drop you of... More
