This quaint hotel distinguishes itself by great service delivered by warm employees, very comfortable rooms with great view of the sea and a good location. Breakfast is great on a price/quality ranking, fresh ingredients, well baked croissants, good coffee and a selection of pastries and juices.

Family owned hotel (very nice people, really) friendly, clean. Just 2 blocks to the beach. Rooms (actually suites) are ok, essential furniture, small tv's that you can only donate (don't even try to sell them) Horrible towels. They have two outside pools, beautiful playgrounds, a pool bar. Nice location, but you ll need a car.

We decided to head out to Uruguay for the long weekend a few weeks ago, but had problems finding a room available in Punta del Este. So, we tried La Barra, an artsy area about a 15-20 minute drive outside of town. We had been here before, and had tried other locations, but they weren't availalbe. So, we tried Las... More

Stayed here for 3 nights leading up to Christmas. This hotel is in the La Barra section of Punta Del Este and just about 100 metres up a very gradual hill from a very large beach. Very surprised to see how quiet the beaches were all over Punta Del Este in the days leading up to Christmas. The hotel beach... More

Punta Del Este is a coastal resort lined with beautiful rental homes and condos along the coast. However, the number of halfway decent hotels is minimal. Las Olas is one of them. Las Olas is clean, almost in a sterile sort of way. The walls, exterior and interior are painted white. The floors and doors are all white. At times,... More

We booked our room for Dec 22 through Dec 26th. Their weren't any reviews on Tripadvisor to get any idea of the place and we went on blind faith and a good feeling. Thank goodness for my intuition! We loved this place. It is in a great location in La Barra, about a 10 minute drive to Punta del Este.... More
