Only for personal reasons, I must say I did not like the decor of Las Cumbres, where we went to have tea. There seems to be no harmony in the decoration, and you eyes keep jumping from on furnishing to the next, trying to find the method in the madness. In my opinion, the decoration of the lobby and tea-room... More

Went here for dinner with my fiance and were both so impressed that we decided this is where we want our wedding reception. The food was excellent and the views and the best in the area. The sunset was the most romantic thing in a long shot. The hotel itself is very nicely styled. Looking forward to returning in 2... More

This place is in an incredible location - the top of a hill overlooking Laguna del Sauce, the Punta del Este airport, the sea etc. Over many years it has become a classic place to have tea and enjoy the sights. We went there last year at tea time and had a wonderful time all around. This year we were... More

Visiting good friends in Punta who took us to this fabulous restaurant. The setting is superb with almost 360 degree views of water and the surrounding area. When you have this type of setting you don't always get great food but this time the entire package was wonderful. From wine to food to service everything was top notch and we... More

Usually this is an amazing place. Very unique property with amazing views. This time the wait staff just couldn't seem to get anything right and everything took agonizingly long amounts of time. As I usually love this place, I will return, but a repeat would make me take my business elsewhere

We took the drive up the windy mountain to experience tea time and the sunset views from Las Cumbres. The experience was phenomenal and well worth our time. The setting is shabby chic, very elegant and yet comfortable and casual at the same time. The food was very good and service exceptional...however our favorite thing...the view, it was breathtaking of... More

I showed up at Las Cumbres without a dinner reservation, only to find out that they were closed that evening for a huge wedding party. The staff were incredibly accommodating and found a place to set up a table for me. My meal was excellent, I'm sure it was the same as what the wedding guests had! This place is... More

I went there for a tea and enjoy the panoramic view on both the laguna and the sea, which is the case. The view is amazing. The service was very kind and professional but the food was average. The tea itself was great, especially the herbal tea. But the pastries and salt meals came all togother so the salt meals... More
