Santiago at the front desk suggested totally curated restaurants that we would have never found ourselves. Great breakfast and for the beach we received umbrellas, chairs and towels...

We stayed here for 5 days and found it a very relaxing place. The fabulous golden sandy beach is a short walk just across the road and we pretty much had it to ourselves. The hotel lent us chairs and an umbrella which were very welcome as it was very hot. The pool is great too as a nice way...

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.

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
