“Beautiful place, but limited service and feel good factor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2009

A stunning setting amongst the woodlands, set 2km back from the beach off the main road (45mins and $55 from the airport).

Beautiful 7 room luxury B&B with cool pool and hot tub. We stayed for 4 nights on our honeymoon. The junior suite was lovely, but we had to move as the bed was too small. The master suite lacked ambience, but at least we slept.

1. Make sure you rent a car or a scooter otherwise you're stuffed. It's miles from anywhere and taxis are tough and expensive.

2. The place would have been perfect if it was not for the fact that only Dolores (owner) spoke English and she was never around and when she was it all seemed a bit of an effort. The other staff however were lovely - but we could not communicate.

3. The breakfasts were good. There is a bar area and a nice boutique main sitting room. The limited kitchen menu was awful (frozen pizza etc).

All in all it was not what we had hoped for our honeymoon, however looking around the local area of Punta (which is a total hole), it's the best of the bunch.

  • Liked — The place itself - beautiful, fashionable and cool

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2007

We had planned to stay here for a couple of nights in late April. We did not have reservations but had planned to show up and get a room for a good price. MISTAKE. We found it very difficult to find the Posada as it is NOT signed. After about an hour of going up and down numerous roads we found the Posada. The setting on a hill above the ocean is stunning and would probably be a place to visit in the warmer months. Unfortunately late April is a dead time for the Punta area. The place was not ready to accomodate guests. The beds had no linens, the roooms smelled musty, etc. We opted nnot to stay and instead went to L'Auberge in Punta.

Stayed May 2007

Best well kept secret in Punta del Este! You have to try it. We stayed for a week in February with my husband and felt in love with this Posada.
Every room is like a dream, specially the one in the second floor, it's the most romantic room I've ever seen, with a great view of the campo and the sea.
This is the perfect place to relax all year round. Heated pool with big lounge chairs, great homemade food, romantic fireplaces where you can have a drink after dinner, and it's only 1Km from the beach!
We had a great time, we super recommend this posada and we're looking forward for next February! See you..
