We stayed for new years 2016 for 4 days: this place is dangerous for your health as rooms are full of mold caused by claimminess and dust. The hotel is well located and close to the beach, but... - Rooms are old, furniture more than used and beds outworn - You can smell mold and even see it in the... More

We had a wonderful stay at Posada Arenas de Jose Ignacio. The staff (Marisio and Camilla especially) were so warm and helpful. The hotel was so clean and the staff was always cleaning. We loved smelling the bread baking at night for the following breakfast.

Young couple from USA and we had a lovely time at Posada Arenas. Very quiet and peaceful stay and really enjoyed the property. Mauricio and the staff were very warm and made sure we had a comfortable, relaxed stay. Close to beach, and also the hammocks by the pool are a great place to relax!

Interesting architecture in a lovely setting (500m from the beach) with a warm, friendly and personal atmosphere. For outdoor leisure, there's a spacious pool, you can take bikes to town, but there's also quiteness to read and W-Lan if you need it. San Ignacio is defenitely a spot worth visiting in Uruguay

This is a very special place, one you leave feeling a bit sad not knowing when you will be back. My husband and I spent 6 nights in the charming town of José Ignacio. We spent our first 2 nights in another hotel just 1 km away of this one. We decided to extend our stay in José Ignacio but... More

We stayed two nights here on a first visit to Jose Ignacio. The hotel is attractive and modern and located in an area that is mostly private homes. There is a lovely beach about a 5 minute walk from the hotel across the sand dunes. Town is a longer walk (which can be hot during the day) but easily accessible... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights in late November during our first visit to Jose Ignacio. Upon walking into the hotel Mauricio and Camila ensured our time at Posada Arenas was excellent and first rate. Since we were in town shortly before the high season, Mauricio explained which shops and restaurants were open and marked them clearly on... More

I stayed two nights at the hotel during the beginning of November. The hotel is beautifully situated about 2k from the town itself. It's a short walk to the beach, and we walked the beach into town each evening for dinner (La Huella). The design of the hotel is modern and interesting, and the pool is a delight. The bathroom's...

We just adored our stay for five weeks this past February & March. The owners have created a welcoming oasis of vibrant architecture combined with low-key hospitality. It is a perfect match! When we asked for anything (and we had lots of asks) the answer was always yes and delivered with a smile. Our room was quiet, spacious, both screened... More
