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

All. Hotels at peak are really expensive and this is no exception. Very nice large rooms, good breakfast, excellent pool, spa and gym facilities. Also tennis courts, baby club etc. Casino and convention centre. Beach club nearby with top restaurant and and full beach facilities. Valet parking. It looks like a. 5 star hotel but there are signs of lack... More

Mantra is nice, has a good infra, good pool, good service and good restaurant, but I would not consider it as a 5 star Resort, at least don't worth the expensive rate room. Your outside view needs a maintenance but inside the hotel is very good. The water of the swimming pool is too much warm. Hotel staff is very... More

First, some advice about the Punta del Este/La Barra/Jose Ignacio area in general. It is super expensive, so be prepared, and don't go if you aren't prepared to spend 2 to 3 times for food and hotels as you would at upscale Caribbean resorts. To put it in perspective, St. Barts is often cheaper than this area, and St Barts... More

La Mantra is an attractive hotel, a bit off the main drag in La Barra. You will want a car if you stay here, as it's too far to walk to anything but maybe the beach itself. We came off season around American Thanksgiving time, and occupancy was light. It was odd not to be able to get change at... More

The resort is nice enough but the over the top prices do not match the level of the hotel or service. One lesson learned - you really must rent a car when staying or else you could find yourself paying $100 round trip in taxi fees to go somewhe 15 minutes away.

This is a beautiful hotel with a lovely spa. Good room service, nice pool, front desk staff nice ans helpful. A nice chap on the door who gets taxis for you very quickly. But a usd 30 taxi ride away from the 'main' punta beach but I think the niceness of the hotel makes it worth it.

We spent 7 dayn at Mantra, and it was a very nice experience (quite pricey though). Service was very good, but the hotel should try to become a little more modern, with a better wifi service, or more computers available to the guests. But considering prrice performance, it was certainly one of the top hotels in the region. SPA is... More

This property is amazing and the amenities are top notch. The linen sheets were something that I will never forget. However, the service here was a little off the mark. I figured because we were on Uruguay that it was a challenge, but for the price, they need to step up. The beach was fantastic. And the pool was one... More
