“A wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We arrived to Colonia after spending time in Punta del Este Uruguay. Colonia is beautiful and quiet and the hotel is very comfortable and relaxing- exactly what we needed. The staff is very nice and helpful. When we called to make reservations they offered us an option of a half board price- which was very reasonable and convenient. Because we traveled with kids it was very nice to eat dinner at the hotel restaurant and then take the kids straight to bed. The food selection was great as was the food, although the dishes are a little small (gourmet style- although the kids had a regular kids' options; burger, pasta...)
The room was big and comfortable and includes a small balcony with a view to the pool and the river. We experienced one stormy night - including a black out for an hour or so, and in the next morning the hotel manager stopped at each table to make sure everyone were fine.
The only thing I would improve is the size of the indoor pool- which is very small, and when it rained, and we wanted to take the kids there- it did not seems very attractive.
Important recommendation: the hotel offers a free guided tour of the old town- don't miss it!

Room Tip: I guess they have rooms that are a little bigger than the others. We traveled with two kids and a ba...

Very nice hotel five minutes walk to the old town. Clean rooms, helpfull staff, OK gym, good swimmingpool with plenty of area to sunbathe. Breakfast quite good compared to other places. Overall very good value for money.

This is a good hotel if you have to stay overnight in Colonia. Not far from the ferry pier (3 USD by taxi) and very close to the old part of the city by foot (15 minutes).

Rooms are ok, although the bathroom is not so good. The bathup is too small to have a proper shower. I didn't get a river view and then facing the street is not that nice. Service was good but nothing special. Breakfast could have more choices, but most people will stay here for short time, so this will not be an issue. They have many TV channels.

If you want to get some food and drinks just walk 5 minutes to the main street and you will get some stores around.

Overall, a good option for short stays in Colonia as long as you get a room facing the river.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the river.

I only spent one day in Colonia del Sacramento, but from my experience the Radisson is the best hotel in the town. The Radisson was perfect for what we needed - a clean, comfortable hotel in this beautiful town. The view from the hotel of the water was spectacular. There was a pool and spa within the hotel, but we did not use due to the time of year. The Radisson has a casino attached to it for those looking for additional entertainment.

I love Radisson hotels and have in many across Europe. This one had real charm, friendly and helpful staff & incredible pool facilities (which made it well worth staying!)
The room was very spacious but the bathroom was very worn. The toilet seat was falling off, as was the handrail and sink didn't seem attached either. The wear and tear on the hotel was v evident in the bathroom and it could do with some work doing on it for Radisson prices.
I enjoyed staying and would do again but it didnt seem the price reflected the quality I have experienced in other Radissons.

Being such a small town, Colonia del Sacramento offers a limited number of options to stay near the historic downtown area. Radisson Hotel & Casino is probably the best option to choose, unless you prefer small (though charming) hostels and "posadas". The place is well kept, clean, with very comfortable roooms (skip the standard ones), with cool views to Rio de La Plata. Breakfast service falls a little below what you could expect from one of the most expensive hotels in Colonia, but all in all, I'll stay there again. All the staff is professional though very strict in check in and out times.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms with a view, junior suites are a very good option!

This is a good enough hotel. You can tell they mean well. We found the staff very attentive to our needs. The food was good enough but not great. The indoor pool was warm enough and almost clean. The view to the river was nice and the room was almost clean enough. I would stay here again if there were no other option or they were giving it for free but I would look for other places to stay the next time I go to Uruguay. Also, be prepared to use your spanish as english is not spoken here.

Room Tip: Having reserved two rooms (one for children and one for us) I found the $80 (US) more for a river vi...
