Stayed here over Xmas 2013 - great place to chill out and relax. Pool is great (spent most days by the pool), rooms were clean. Had a room overlooking the garden. Didn't check out the casino. Car parking also available.

It is strategically located within reasonable driving distance of both downtown Punta del Este and Jose Ignacio (nowadays the two "centers of gravity" of the broader Punta del Este tourism region.) It is a beautiful and well kept mid-size hotel, with... More

Our stay at Mantra was overall very good. The food was delicious and the spa was pretty good (better than most spas we have been to in Uruguay or Argentina). The rooms were clean and the service was also pretty good. Breakfast was great, and the outdoor pool was beautiful and heated!
