The hotel is clean, with swimming pools (one of them indoor, with warm water) and at walking distance from the beach; perhaps, it lies a bit far from the town centre (say, 20 min by feet). A small bar/reastaurant is also available. The staff is kind and helpful; the buffet breakfast is quite rich and good; the wifi is free... More

Undoubtedly a very nice hotel, long time ago. Now it is not worth the money. Hotel needs to be updated. Spacious rooms with good beds and bathroom. Old poolarea, old gym, old carpets etc etc. Friendly staff, nice location near the beach. Truth being told, for this price you can find much nicer hotels in the area.

The hotel was nice and clean, not elaborate, but clean. All of the staff was friendly and the reception staff spoke English well. They were also well versed in what was going on in the town. The free garage was a big plus.

Punta del Este is ridiculously expensive, but we got a good price here as part of a package deal. The hotel is a little dated(~1990s) but has a excellent breakfast buffet, a real nice pool and foosball and pingpong for the kids. There is free wifi. The room we had was a "triple" too small for 4 people, our 2... More

La Foret is a budget class hotel in regards to quality, but at Punta "budget class" doesn't mean inexpensive. The decor is dated and needs some sprucing up, but the hotel was clean. This is a small 4-floor hotel surrounded by high rise condos and hotels, and it's one block from the beach, so don't expect sweeping ocean views. Mansa... More

We tend to shy away from "chain" hotels but the Best Western came highly recommended from local business people with whom we were meeting. Decent enough, the large attractive lobby also offered a small bar with food service overlooking the expansive grounds with lovely pool and plenty of seating options even for those looking for shade. There is also an... More

I chose this hotel to get away from the touristy center of punta del este which I had seen before on a previous trip and see a different side of punta del este. I did not care for the location very much.... There are only 2-3 restaurants nearby, 2 of which are in another hotel(the conrad). The area was very... More

The hotel is well located in Playa Mansa, near the Conrad Casino. It says is 100m from the sea, but my impression was that the hotel is closer (is just a block from the sand). Rooms are good and breakfast was ok. It has a good swimming pool, as well as a heated one for cold days. Prices were not... More

Nice, clean, good pool, good service. Location is not perfect but ok. Very helpful staff. Maybe better to stay in la barra for 'beach cool'.

The hotel is located close to the beach and is very convenient. The rooms are cramped and the beds seem shorter than the normal queen bed. Breakfast was reasonable, but only reasonable. My problems started when the family decided to spend less time in Punta del Este than we had originally planned. The hotel had taken an imprint of my... More
