Our stay at Mantra was overall very good. The food was delicious and the spa was pretty good (better than most spas we have been to in Uruguay or Argentina). The rooms were clean and the service was also pretty good. Breakfast was great, and the outdoor pool was beautiful and heated!

Excellent choice. The hotel is very well mainteined. The staff is always ready to help. The bedroom is very spacious and clean and so is the bathroom. The amenities provided are of very good quality. Breakfast is wonderful. A good choice of bread, cake and fruit. The spa is also very good. The massage is a bit expensive, but it... More

It's a pity. Mantra is well located, just between Punta del Este and José Ignacio beach.The hotel is excellent: large and well decorated rooms, wonderful spa & gym, gourgeous swimming pool, kind and efficient staff. Therefore, it's a pity that the we found the food lacking. Even at breakfast: the bread was tasteless, cakes and Danish pastries dry, disgusting looking... More

Overall excellent experience. Hotel staff are friendly and professional, the food at the restaurant (Indigo) is outstanding, and the caviar is to die for. Though I didn't have children with me, I got the impression that it was family friendly. On top of it the pool is beautiful!

Everyone from arrival to departure was totally on the game, smiles, languages, helpful - all like they mean it, which they probably do. Top end resort hotel keeping up standards off season (when I was last there). Everything you need and seemingly provided without question. Full kids club year round. A top end efficient international hotel resort, not a quirky... More

We stayed at the Mantra resort for four days. Important to notice, this is a in-room smoking hotel as we were not told so at the time of booking. The rooms are well appointed and the grounds well kept. It is not a five star hotel by western standards, maybe four. The hotel is about 20 minutes east from Punta... More
