My husband and I stayed at El Capullo for two nights in March 2014. The hotel is cozy and the staff very friendly. The common areas are nice and the breakfast has many sweet and savory options (do not expect eggs and bacon though, it's mostly pastries). We were given room Nº 5, which is right in front of the...

We were looking for a B&B in Colonia del Sacramento and we found this beautiful place almost by chance. The historic lines of the building have been preserved and blended with modern comfort and kept immaculate. Not a bubble in the paint! Indeed, the place was meticulously kept. The back yard was a gem... We sat under the tree shade... More

fast answer to email; the Posada is located in the best area of Colonia at walking distance from all attractions. I travel by scooter, there is a garage. The pool is located in a nice garden, with BBQ, lounge, all the rooms are spacious, with excellent beds, nice bathrooms. A posada with charm I really enjoyed

My wife and I stayed nearly a week and loved it. The people who run the pousada are friendly, helpful, and basically just great people. Our room was comfortable and everything worked fine. We were in need of a quiet and restful time to recuperate from a busy year. While many people visit Colonia for only a day or two,... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. Great location (minutes by foot from the Buquebus terminal and from the centre of the old Town), beautiful garden, comfortable & clean rooms (with HBO in English for those who want it), gay-friendly, hearty breakfast, and friendly staff. The women working the front desk are cordial and English-speaking. Anyone who needs to hang around... More

Immaculate, very tastefully decorated with local contemporary art, and much more upscale than other options in this quaint town. The garden area is also beautiful--a nice pool, bar area and gazebo. It's also located right in the heart of the town so is walking distance to everything.

I was here on my honeymoon. I would absolutely stay here again. It is cute, clean, close to downtown. As mentioned here before, the garden is lovely, the people are wonderful, and the rooms are comfortable. We loved it.

What a beautiful place to spend time in Colonia, Uruguay. El Capullo is gorgeous, with an amazing pool and backyard, wonderful breakfast and sweet, friendly staff. It is also located next to all the amazing spots to visit and restaurants. Uruguay is a beautiful country, with beautiful people, and we were able to experience that at El Capullo.

Lucky to get a room here - seems to be fully booked most of the time, and no wonder. A relaxing garden with comfy chairs, and a small but just fine swimming pool. Standard room is fairly small, but does the job. And more time spent in the garden than the room anyway. Spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and accommodating.... More
