The driver and his English-speaking guide we hired at the Port of Punta del Este made this attraction as the last stop of our tour. We spent about 1.5 hours taking pictures of this attraction and its surroundings. We were told that this is the artist's home and work place. Displayed at the entrance are some of his sculptures, more... More

I could give 6/6 or 7/7 to this place. Sunset at this place is unforgettable. The building and the paintings also deserve your attention. Don't miss it.

A very beautiful place... just like a piece of dream. The museum, the cafe and the balcony with the sunset listening the artist say a poem while the sun set is magic.

Casapueblo has expanded from a beach shack built with driftwood to a more-than-70-room hotel, rambling along the beachfront hillside at Punta Ballena (Whale Point) near Punta del Este in Uruguay. Developed over more than 30 years, and in contradiction to normal architecture and planning, by artist Carlos Páez Vilaró, the building also houses the artist's studio and exhibitions of his...

We went to Casapueblo as it was one of the few things open at the end of the year to visit (we tried another museum and it was closed during the week). It is OK, but disappointing as there is not much to see and you dont have the opportunity to really learn about the building itself or experience the... More

It is worth torment a car to go because this is the way to avoid Punta del este. On the contrary you must go to Punta del Este and from there get a bus to Punta Ballena. The walk from the road to Casa Pueblo is a short walk, perfectly feasible. The entrance is R$20,00 in January 2015. The arquitecture... More

The is in the ideal location to enjoy solitude and relaxation. The views are superb! The sunset view is just spectacular. Would not recommend this hotel if you're looking to spend time in Punta Del Este or Barra, where the glamour and night life are the main attractions. This hotel could use a major investment from a hotel management group... More
