“Casa Pueblo”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The original home of Paez Vilaro, there are no corners, the view is incredible.
I do not like that half of the house was sold to Hotel hilton.

“Most beautiful sunset”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

The town holds the original house were the artist Carlos Paez Vilaro lived and worked. The bar and the terrace have the most beautiful and amazing view for a romantic sunset.

“Gaudi visits Picasso, goes to Greece on vacation and then builds a house”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

This cliffside house/hotel of white-painted drippy concrete (like a reticent Gaudi) and blue tiles and decoration (Picasso) is the work and vision of one artist. It comes across as almost entirely derivative, and you won't find anything really new or surprising. Having said that, it is very very beautiful because it fits its seaside location perfectly, particularly when the sun makes you think you are in Greece. In my opinion, well worth a visit.

“Go visit. Don't stay at the hotel”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I stayed here recently for one night. The property itself is amazing, but the hotel lacks. The hotel is very expensive and offers nothing luxury for the price. A room that costs over $210 a night should offer a bit more. If I could do it differently I would visit and stay elsewhere.

“Interesting”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Very touristy, and they want to sell you something, but alas, it is unique and you won't forget it, in a charming area of Punta Ballena, fabulous views and quite spectacular set up.
