We went to Puerto Galera for the Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival and most of the hotels in Puerto Galera were fully booked. We were brought here by a friend who had stayed here on previous visits and it was definitely a great choice. We stayed in the 4 room pool villa with a great view of the ocean. It is a bit away from town but the hotel has a service vehicle that can bring you wherever you need to go. A very peaceful and quiet hideaway for families or groups.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- More than a hotel, Punta del Este is an authentic getaway. It gives you the chance to live your retreat or your holiday in genuine privacy, enjoying relative seclusion and yet having the benefit of proximity to essential services. From the top of the beautiful green promontory, nearly all around it, you are able to catch the awesome sight of the broad ocean with its islands, indented coast and sandy coves, as well as the view of the nearby beach and, behind it, the lowland villages imbedded in wide coconut groves. From a distance you can also watch the small town’s life. In just five minutes you get there easily, looking for shops and services. In the background of this unique community, the skies offer incessant scenes of marine clouds gathering above the jungle and engulfing inscrutable mountains. Beyond the landscape reside the mysteries of the hinterland and its indigenous people. Better than a suite, your accommodation is a large villa. Absolutely exclusive, highly private, hidden from onlookers, even clothing optional, it becomes your home for the duration of the stay. Staff and cook are at your service, striving to provide what you need, that it’d be food, drinks, information, means of transport, access to activities and wellness services. More private than a restaurant, we operate in self-catering mode. After planning the meals with you, the cook goes shopping. You may even join her to the market (bringing your food is possible, no corkage fee). She prepares and serves the meals. If you love cooking, she is your assistant. Alternatively, at our smaller bungalow or studios, you will be cooking for yourself. Anyway our staff does the cleaning in the morning and remains attentive to your needs, providing information and assistance for transportation, activities and wellness. Accommodation: + Two exclusive villas, the equivalent of complete suites, each with its own private amenities: swimming pool, kitchen, dedicated cook and staff, terraces, garden with “kubo” gazebo, path to the nearby beach. One of the villas takes 8 guests in 4 bedrooms with private bathroom, the other takes 10 guests in 4 bedrooms and a mezzanine, each with private bathroom. Approximately two minutes down to the beach. + Two studios, in the immediate vicinity of either villa, each offering room for 2 to 3 guests on a large double bed, plus a sofa bed or a folding bed if requested. Private bathroom and complete kitchen. Private balcony with sea and mountain view in one of them. Two minutes down to the beach for one and three for the other. + One seclusive “bahay-sudio”, or small bungalow, nested on a platform of the cliff, half-way down to the beach. It’s a small native style house with room for 2 or 3 guests on a king-size bed and a folding bed if requested. Private bathroom and complete kitchen. Private balcony terrace. One minute down to the beach. We assist our guests in finding and organizing any activity or excursion that they would fancy and is available in the area. We can arrange your transfer from the airport to the villas. Free shuttle from/to the arrival/departure pier in Puerto Galera. ... more less
