This Posada sits across from a lovely beach (you must cross highway).All the beaches are named and the hotel is very near Playa Montoya, a happening beach. The Pepsi Cup for Uruguay Surfing was held while we were in town at Playa Montoya. All the beaches on the ocean side have good waves and surf. La barra itself is a... More

This review will have a follow-up when we depart in 5 days: ARRIVAL REVIEW First impression was very good. The rooms are basic but very good with comfortable bed, which is vastly important. Location across from beach was with beautiful view of ocean. Pool is small but good. Lounges around pool good not super comfy, which would have been perfect.... More

a gem of a small hotel in a quiet small beach town. the service and breakfast were terrific and we would come back without a doubt. the views from beach front rooms are great and only a small two minute walk to the beach across the main road.

Great small hotel that has everything you need for a wonderful stay. Very good breakfast, powerfull showers. Trip advisor wants that I continue writing but I believe that with what I mentioned is enough.

The owner and staff of this inn truly understand every aspect of comfort and service. From the moment you enter, your soul is transformed by the hand painted parrot murals throughout the lobby; walls of windows that frame the brightly blooming tropical gardens and vista views to the ocean. "I have never felt so special" as the owner personally served... More

Wow did we uncover a gem. We just got lucky on this one because many of the search engines did not bring this hotel up. This is a Swiss owned hotel and that means everything is done right, the first time. Whether it is cleanliness (perfect), the wi-fi, or the location, which is looking right at the water, relaxing here... More

very nice small hotel with friendly staff. i made the mistake of taking cab from airport which cost me 60$ US. did rent a car after that as driving here doesnt seem to be a problem. posada is in 'la barra' so it is a 15min ride to punta del este. wi-fi worked great and reception was cool with me...

Just came back from a weekend at the Posada. I had a great time. Staff are very friendly and attentive, rooms are very nice and the Posada is really small and intimate, very quiet and relaxing. I really recommend it!

After a couple of nights in Montevideo, at what is supposedly one of the cities best hotels according to ratings here - we were ready to move on. Luckily, landed at Posada de los Pajaros. The minute we saw the room we audibly gasped. Very modern, Zen like vibe - fabulous bed, everything clean, great view of the pool and... More

This little hotel is such a beautiful space. Located in what looks like a Spanish villa just off the coastal highway in la barra, Uruguay, it feels like you are staying in a very exclusive beach house owned by a celebrity. The theme of the hotel is birds, and there are beautiful little decorative items and paintings all over that... More
