This little hotel is such a beautiful space. Located in what looks like a Spanish villa just off the coastal highway in la barra, Uruguay, it feels like you are staying in a very exclusive beach house owned by a celebrity. The theme of the hotel is birds, and there are beautiful little decorative items and paintings all over that reinforce that theme. Outside there is a little garden where many birds make their home. Our room had stone floors, fresh white linens, and a little fridge tucked into a corner. It received lots of light and the bed was very firm and comfortable.
If you have a car, i would highly recommend staying here at any time of year. It is quite far from the punta del este bus station and the local bus that stops on the highway in front of the hotel only comes once an hour, and stops running at 930pm. We took a few $25 cab rides because of this, since puntas restaurants barely start serving until 9, and la barras restaurants were closed in the shoulder season when we were there. In the high season, la barra is apparently much more happening, with casual bars and restaurants abt a 20 min walk from the hotel. However for any of puntas fancier dining options, you'd need to make arrangements by cab. In the low season, it was a little awkward to use public transit, but we made it work.
This hotel had the most wonderful service, and so despite the relative inconvenience of staying so far out I am very glad we made the trip. We were the only guests that night, and still the staff pulled out all the stops for us, serving us drinks on the gorgeous terrace at sunset, and preparing a lavish breakfast the next morning, which we ate staring at a breathtaking view of the Atlantic. I felt like we were in the hamptons! The beach that is just down from the hotel is also extraordinary, white sand, big waves, and a long, uninterrupted view if the coast. I would have loved to stay there for longer.
