Don't be fooled by the pictures on the web site, or the name on the door. This is not a Four Seasons Resort and the Four Seasons company should get their name off it as fast as possible. I have stayed at more than 20 Four Seasons properties, so I know what to expect. This could be a beautiful place... More

This is a charming resort. The rooms are spacious (though not quite as spacious as the photos on the website imply). The staff in all areas of the resort went above and beyond to make things perfect. My only complaints are regarding the food in the main restaurant which I found to be a bit fussy and overpriced, and the... More

This resort is a little gem away from the crowds across the river in Buenos Aires. Uruguay has the feel of Eastern Europe some 20 years ago - it's undeveloped and some people still go about their daily chores using a horse and cart. Very little commercialisation. The resort is a little unusual for the Four Seasons chain - it's... More

I had the pleasure to stay at this property 22Jan-24Jan 2015. Very different (in a good way) from other resorts, only has 48 bungalows. The atmosphere is complete relaxation. Surrounded by pines and eucalyptus trees just the air brings your senses to a place of complete stop and reboot. The food and wine are superb. Would def.come back in the... More

The Four Seasons Golf Club Carmelo is a very special destination, a beautiful resort embedded in the peaceful and idyllic rolling Uruguayan countryside on the banks of the tranquil waters of the River Plate Delta. Conceived with the most exquisite mix of architectural design: local, Western and a touch of Asian influence, it breathes an ambience of relaxed elegance. Cosy... More

We'd been at this resort in 2006, and since then quite a bit has changed: there is a restaurant at the pool now, which makes it even harder to leave the pool, they added a yoga shack by the river, perfect and quite for yoga and meditation classes, there is a firepit outside the bar, lovely on colder nights.

I have been to Carmelo several times over the years and each time I am reminded why I love it. It is simple, rustic and in an odd location but the nature and feel of the place is not found anywhere else which makes it truly unique. Walking the grounds of the resort is a wonderful experience, especially in the... More

To escape the cold of NYC, we decided to head to Buenos Aires for Christmas. As hotel connoisseurs, we were naturally drawn to Carmelo, Uruguay because of the Four Season. It was simply perfect. The Staff: - The Concierge - Maximiliano Burgos: He helped us from the moment we decided to spend a few days in Carmelo. Sending us suggestions... More

A hop skip and jump from the teaming masses of Buenos Aires this resort is where time stands still. Built in a growing vineyard on the shore of the river and bordered by a pine forest this low slung Bali like resort exudes calm and relaxation. Headed by the charming and attentive Mark Bigley, the staff can never find enough... More

This is a difficult trip from NYC but well worth the effort. The place is luxury in a park-like setting on the bank of the Uruguay River. With only 44 rooms you feel like you have the place to yourself even during the weekends. The staff could not be nicer and go our of their way to make you feel... More
