we visited the museum only as the Hotel was being renovated at the time. The museum is very interesting and certainly well worth a visit.

Wasn't sure what I was going to find here and I loved it! The house is very different and interesting! The location and view are beautiful. All the work of Carlos Páez Vilaró is amazing.

This house and museum dedicated to Carlos Páez Vilaró is worth seeing if you are in the Punta del Este area. The location on Punta Ballena was striking and the museum was quite interesting as well.

Really beautiful view. It was a shame that I went with a city tour and did not have enough time to come in.

Really worth a stop. The building is gorgeous and unusual. Tour the premises and view his art as well as buy it. The restaurant was closed when we were there but looks lovely.

The Casapueblo itself is larger than you think but the area open to the public is probably smaller than you think. Nevertheless it is beautiful, interesting, even for those not artistically inclined. Casapueblo is actually 30 min bus ride (and then a 1km alk from bus stop) from of Punta del este, heading towards Montevideo. Therefore bear this in mind... More

I have to be honest - I knew nothing about the artist before checking in. I know a lot more now…as a jaded international business traveller - hotels on the whole bore me…I was on holiday in Uruguay - out of season, and a friend told me to go - "not the best hotel in the world - but an... More
