The hotel's setting is very beautiful, on the lake and with extensive grounds. We visited in mid-April, however and were one of only a handful of people staying in the hotel. We wouldn't recommend visiting after Easter unless you want absolute peace and quiet! Some of the facilities (sauna, Jacuzzi etc.) had been turned off.
The map on trip advisor is misleading - the hotel is not on the Punta del Este peninsula, it is about 10km away from PdelE, so be aware that you will need a car if you want to leave the resort. Taxis are very expensive in the area (about £30/$45 one-way to PdelE).
Our lake-view room was large with a huge comfortable bed and a large bathroom. The style is slightly dated country-club and some of the fittings, carpets etc are showing their age. We were expecting luxury and this wasn't quite up to the mark.
Restaurant was good, if a little expensive, but PdelE is an expensive town. Wine was reasonable value, but other drinks were expensive (but probably in line with other hotels in the area).
We paid out-of-season rates ($114/night) but honestly cannot recommend the hotel out of season and do not feel that it was worth that price.
