We spent 4 nights at La Viuda del Diablo and absolutely loved it. The hostel is beautifully designed and the staff are all lovely - extremely friendly and helpful, not to mention willing to give lifts! We had a lovely relaxing stay and felt very welcome here. There is a room down the far end of the garden which is... More

Directly in the sand dunes at Punta del Diablo with a marvellous setting, this hotel has a very good location. The room was big and had a Jacuzzi in it with sea view. There was an additional shower and a separate room for the toilet. The bed was quite good and big. Installations were a bit old and there was... More

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
