“Uruguay's Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed December 21, 2016 for a stay in December 2016
1
person found this review helpful

After travelling from Canada for some 24 hours, it was heaven to arrive at Sugar Loaf. In no time ("checking in" took 5 minutes) and with no effort, we found ourselves on the deck of a lovely bungalow, surrounded by crickets and birds and an amazing sunset - open fire place and the largest view of the Milky Way to follow. The house is modern and comfortable; the terrace offers a magnificent view. The nearby beaches are beautiful beyond description and not crowded. But by far the best part of our stay was Paul who runs the place and who looked after our every need without ever intruding. The countryside is gorgeous and relaxing; for excitement, we drove to Punta del Este which was only some 30 minutes away. It was a perfect vacation.

“Super view, place and home at Sugar Loaf!!!”
Reviewed January 8, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My wife and son enjoy each minute of our stay at Sugar Loaf in Pan de Azucar, Maldonado, Uruguay between december 26 to january 4th, 2016.

Paul Freisen with his huge experience leading a unique Project with the support of his team Jose and Natalia.

I was born in Montevideo and every year until 1971 we use to spend some days in Piriapolis, a magic place on earth. I use to visit a lot Uruguay for obvious reasons and rent in Dowtown Piriapolis.

After my stay at Sugar Loaf for sure we will back as son as we can...
Sincerely,
Alvaro, Yadira & Mateo

“Quietness, nature and fantastic views”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

people found this review helpful

The house has one of the most fantastic views I've ever seen from my window. The evenings on the terrace with the smoke from the barbecue and splendid scenery around are just unforgettable. The place is very quiet, though with easy access to the town of Piriapolis, where you can find a nice beach, fine supermarket, restaurants, shops etc. You should have a car of course. The house is spacious and very comfortable for 4 persons. In general it was really great.
What I didn't like: Wi-Fi sometimes is very slow, almost none. The electricity sometimes breaks. It was a reason of the strange behavior of the airconditioner in the 2nd bedroom. The problems with electricity caused that the conditioner started producing strange noises despite it was turned off. We didn't sleep a couple of nights before we found out what was going on :)
I'm sure it is already fixed up and everything is just perfect!

Estimada Silvina,
muchas gracias por sus comentarios útiles!
Fue un placer tenerte a ti y a tu familia con nosotros.
Tenemos que disculparnos por las molestias que tuviste durante tu estadía de 10 días en la hermosa Sugar Loaf Casa 15.
Desafortunadamente hemos tenido una primavera muy desagradable y lluviosa que sólo terminó un par de días antes de que comenzara la temporada alta.
Por esta razón no tuvimos oportunidad de reparar las manchas y otros menores que usted había mencionado. Y otras cosas también.
La limpieza programada es después de 7 días, pero como dice nuestra carta de bienvenida: los clientes pueden tener limpieza extra y cambio de toallas si lo desean y quieren pagar.
Las posibilidades confiables de WIFI en Uruguay son muy limitadas y también costosas. Por esta razón hemos elegido Movistar por su excelente conexión, incluso en temporada alta cuando otras redes pueden tener problemas de ancho de banda.
Pero el único contrato posible es con un límite de 15 Gigabytes / Mes. Por esta razón siempre añadimos 500 Pesos / UY (la cantidad máxima posible) antes de que lleguen nuevos clientes, como en su caso. Si no tenía más saldo después de 4 días, significa que usted o alguien de su familia ha consumido más de 15 GB en este corto período de tiempo. Pero es muy fácil añadir más saldo comprando pagando cualquier cantidad hasta 500 Pesos UY en cualquiera de nuestros supermercados y ya estás en línea de nuevo.
Acabamos de tener una familia, donde los niños se las arreglaron para conseguir los 15 GB utilizados dentro de menos de un dia:)
Gracias también por sus comentarios sobre la seguridad.
Sugar Loaf es seguro y está marcado como propiedad privada donde no se permite la entrada a otras personas.
No hemos tenido ningún problema de seguridad en los últimos 7 años!

Una vez más muchas gracias por su comentario útil y vamos a tratar de hacer todo lo posible para su próxima visita.

Esperamos volver a verle pronto.
Saludos a todos,
Paul-W. , Natalia y José
Disculpe la demora, ya volví de Colombia
