The hotel was very quiet when we were there, to be honest too quiet, the wet bar not in use and no towels for the loungers after the first day. Actually some sun umbrellas would've been helpful. We only discovered a member of staff who spoke English after 2 days so before then, it was difficult to ask for any... More

Posada del Faro is an idyllic place in the best of Jose Ignacio. The hotel is simply beautiful, comfortable, elegant and friendly. As soon you arrive, the summer spirit takes over. Super friendly staff that walk the extra mile to make you feel welcome. Privacy and relax is guaranteed. Ample windows facing the sea give you the chance to enjoy... More

When you arrive at the hotel you may well wonder why you've paid so much to come here. Give it 24 hours and you'll know. Okay, it need a bit of TLC but it is the most magical place to spend some time. We were there for 8 nights over New Year and I honestly don't think there's anywhere I... More

It is a very nice place in general and the staff is very friendly. However during the pre-season, early December in our case, there is a lot of maintenance happening in preparation for the start of summer and most restaurants are not open yet. Out of 12 or so restaurants in the area only 2 were open, one for lunch... More

just spent 4 days at Del Faro in Jose Ignacio, the exclusive and very attractive beach next to Punta del Leste. Wonderful champing place, both the beach and the hotel. I stayed in the room Doce (12) with amazing views to the ocean. Good in size, simple and chic. Warm and friendly staff. We had a terrific time there and... More

We spent three nights at Posada del Faro in November 2014 and were very pleased with our selection for our accommodations in Jose Ignacio. It is ideally located a stone's throw to the beach and is walking distance to town. The rooms and pool all have nice views of the sunset. We stayed in a standard room, but we would... More

This little hotel has the best views of the beach, intimate hotel grounds with a relaxed atmosphere with pool and gardens. Our room centered on top of the lobby enjoys the views of the whole beach, sunrise and sundown. Not the most modern but absolutely great accommodations, AC, spacious rooms and bathrooms with rustic terrace surrounding the pool and gardens.... More

we came to spend a few days, and were forced to leave quickly as our room was awfully dirty, smelt so much humidity that you had a feeling to be in a cellar. the pool is awful too, the hotel urgently needs to be renovated as it does not deserve at all, as it stands, its reputation (except its bar...

There are lots of lovely places to sit and enjoy the sunshine/sunset or avoid the sun completely. It was comfortable and in a good location for walking on the beach or into the village. The inn serves breakfast only but after the third day it lacked variety. To be offered some yoghurt, eggs, ham or cheese would be good. The... More

A very pretty posada. Not too busy when we were there. Stayed in a standard room - the rates (even off peak) are massive, and to be honest the other rooms may have better views +/- larger in size, but the garden space, lots of seating, proximity to beach means that a standard room is fine- not sure that we...
