We recently stayed in this small Hotel in Punta del Diablo. The location is very nice and quite but service and room conditions are too expensive for what they offer. Rooms are not very clean nor well equipped/decorated. The shower has a visible curtain and looks very old and dirty. The blackout didn´t cover the windows and the room has... More

Very nice place but a little rustic for the price. I think things are generally a bit more expensive since it is far away. We paid $250-per night so were expecting a SUPER nice place. I think the price was more for the ´fiestas weekend´that we were there. The people are really nice, but don´t be expecting luxury. The restaurant... More

Viuda del Diablo: A place with great potential. But, for your sake, DON’T GO! At least don’t go until you can confirm it is good conditions as you would accept. I received a warm reference and change my program as to spend 2 nights at the Viuda Del Diablo. We arrived late in the night after a long tour. Driving... More

I stayed here with a group of friends for two nights in November 2012 (slightly earlier than the start of peak season). We actually were only supposed to stay one night, but we had such an amazing time that we stayed for an additional night. The hotel is very uniquely decorated, filled with original art and high-end furnishings. And upon... More

We stayed here during a road trip around Uruguay and it was the most amazing night of the holiday. We arrived late and woke up in a gorgeous wooden cabin of a room to a view directly of the beach and sea. I went for an early morning walk - the beach was deserted and made of the softest sand...

The hotel has amazing view=its right in the sand dunes. We also loved the jacuzzi. The service- definitely needs improvement. Our bed linen were not fresh when we checked in and with lots of staines. I asked to changed them- was told to do it myself and that the staines are normal (multiple)- on their website it says high quality... More

We came here for a bit of luxury over Christmas on our otherwise budget trip. We got just what we wanted - the rooms are pretty classy and deliver the impression from the website including the jacuzzi baths. The best feature was the balcony right onto the beach though.  The adjoining restaurant is good for a treat but quite expensive... More

Just finished a 3 night stay here. It seemed a little pricey for Uruguay, but given that it is on the beach and it was during high season, not excessively so. The rooms are big and have a really nice jacuzzi, breakfast is included and you really are right on the beach. The owners are friendly and attentive (though we... More

My wife and I stayed here in the room above the restaurant for 5 days and 4 nights in January 2012. We had great views over the dunes to the ocean (which is about 100 yards away). Our room had a balcony with two lounging chairs where we could lay out and a jacuzzi in side the room overlooking the... More

All the rooms face the sand dunes and top floor has great ocean view. The rooms are very comfortable and bright with a jacuzzi tub in each room. Nice balconies. The small hotel is to the south west end of the rather grubby town centre of Punta del Diablo but only a 20 minute beach walk away from the eating... More
