Close proximity to the beach, shopping and restaurants, as well as the extremely helpful staff (especially Monica) make this a good place to stay in La Barra. The hotel is old and outdated, but all we needed besides perfect weather for a stay at the beach. Located right next to the beach, the hotel supplies towels and beach chairs. Pool...

The setting is stunning, the new updated bathrooms, spectacular service and moderate prices for this town. Breakfast was nice except for the "queso de maquina", which is a processed cheese and a cheap ham. I stayed in several places this visit to Punta del Este, was disgusted by them, ended up in La Posta. and it saved my vacation. In...

This Hotel was amazing in my visit to Punta de Este, great place to rest and eat. Close to all the clubs and great restaurants and the best beaches. The Hotel is very clean and the service very good. Definitely I recommend it if you are going to party or to rest.

clearly this hotel and restaurant were once hot spots. the hotel is still good but could do with a thorough overhaul. unfortunately it seems as if the surrounding houses have sprung up over the last few years in an uncoordinated fashion. the result is a mixture of styles and qualities that is not appealing. staff were extremely friendly.

Location is great, almost down by the beach, and close to pubs, restaurants. This is a classic Punta del Este hotel, but a bit dated.... The rooms seems to have undergone a renovation recently, but the building is old, no elevator it has only 3 floors, but if you have mobility issues, you should keep this in mind. the hallways...

After a long search for a hotel around Punta del Este, the nicest of beach resorts in Uruguay, we thought to try La Posta. It was down a beach-front road south of Punta, almost a neighborhood to itself, more reminiscent of a small California beach town than South America. La Posta, I learned, had been in one family for many...

MANAGEMENT: The hotel is run by a family that uses the hotel as their own house, with no respect for the guests. They use the nice swimming pool as a family gathering place, shouting from one side to the other. Also the staff prioratizes the owners on top of the guests. ROOM: The room was antiquated, the queen bed was...

La Posta del Congrejo is not the fanciest hotel in Punta, actually it’s in La Barra, but it’s one of the best located. Sitting just above the beach in La Barra, the hotel is perfectly situated. The hotel is a little worn around the edges, but nice; I felt it had a kind of shabby chic quality to it. The...

In the last 20 years I have stayed in La Posta many times and it is my go to choice for a great vacation(or two ) virtually every year. Yes there are now a small handful of chic hotels and a couple of luxury hotels which over the years I have sampled but like a great many people I keep...
