We loved this place so much we stayed for 1 night and then came back for another two on the tail end of our trip. This place is incredibly charming, with great staff, delicious breakfast, and a warm ambience. The owner was very welcoming and quick to offer any advice and trade travel stories. It was a perfect quiet haven...

La Barra is a beautiful place to stay for holiday, especially for those who don't like Punta del Este with its large hotels and skyscrapers. Here you may find wonderful beaches and choose windy ones (playa brava) or calm (playa calma) nearby. Despite the fact that LaBarra was in the past a fishing village, now it's a very expensive area....

So eclectic! Rooms are so well done, beautiful courtyard to chill in and read or hang out. Everything feels so authentic here. Original. Plus the entry and location are nondescript.....you literally enter through giant barn doors off a back street

What an amazing hotel! I feel so lucky to have stumbled on to Casa Zinc, and I cannot compliment it enough. First, the hospitality of the staff was so kind and so sweet. Second, the decor is very chic, and clearly the owners have an eye and talent for refurbishing antiques. Stunning. The breakfast was perfect : fresh OJ, coffee,...

We have really loved our 4 night stay in Casa Zinc. We were given an upgrade, and loved the Architect and the Design Studios: the windows and the furniture were perfect. The breakfasts were also very good, in a lovely, atmospheric room, with fresh orange juice and croissants. Victoria and Estefany took very good care of us, including when we...

Stumbled on the quiet luxury of Casa Zinc by a word of mouth recommendation. On a residential street and not a stroll on the main drag kind of place, the perfect dinner bistro was a short walk away, the room and court yard where idyllic and service was great. A special environment made for the best days of vacation.

I stayed for 10 nights at Casa Zinc in the Biblioteca room with my partner and we both loved the experience. Staff are incredibly capable and very friendly, yet professional - the place has a unique style with laid back old furniture mixed with comfy beds and crisp white sheets - breakfast is wonderful too. La Barra is the perfect...

One of the best places I've ever stayed. Casa Zinc is the perfect combination of substance and style. There is no shortage of good taste in everything from the wine in the room to the shower and big sink in the bathroom, big comfy leather chairs to sit and read in, and Adirondack chairs on the patio. The morning breakfast...
