We decided to take the plunge and book a room at Pousada Bouland. They apparently now also call it 'Pulperia No Seas Malo' which I guess is a result of trying to further lure guests into booking overpriced accommodation there.
We were greeted by the owners in Punta del Este, who took us to our "villa". In fact, it was nothing more than a hostel with hardly any hot water and not even a proper lock for the property. We were safe to say very disappointed and asked Dolores (who is the manager) to cancel our remaining stay. She then became quite threatening and said that her boyfriend Alfredo "would not be happy". They charged as 250 USD per night for what should have been priced as a cheap hostel. Truly terrible!
This experience seriously destroyed some of the fun with Punta del Este and I sincerely advise people to look at other alternatives.
