I was travelling with my family so I spent 1 night at this hotel. Cons: Breakfast is poor, front desk not very helpful, very small room, bathroom does not look very well cleaned. Pros: Price. I would recommend if you're travelling on a budget.

This hotel was reasonably priced on bookings. The staff are very friendly and some of the desk staff speak English. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The breakfast is good with lots of choices. The location is close to lots of places to eat. The famous hand in the sand is just a few blocks away.

I stayed again at the Ajax on a business trip to Punta del Este. It is convenient, much less pricey than many hotels around, and its internet works just fine. Definitely it´s for those who spend most of the time outside the room, but even if you want to stick around the hotel, the common areas are spacious and agreeable....

A simple hotel, quite nice breakfast although no scrambled eggs for foreign tourists. Advantages: Very close to the beach, clean, nice staff, parking lot, wi-fi. Rooms are a bit small, same as the shower but as we all know 130 dollars a day in Punta del Este is CHEAP! we can´t ask for more!

The only thing about these ratings is that, when you try to find a hotel, the best/worse rated might not be exactly a guideline for you. What I mean with this is that if you go to Punta during the high season where all rates go up in an incredible way, you might end up paying too much money for...

I was in town for a convention at the Conrad and the Conrad booked up. I should not have let location (across the street) drive my choice. The room has two single beds with about 30 inches in between them. The beds were lumpy and I could not sleep well. There is a "desk" which is a 3' x 4'...

Ajax is a budget hotel in Punta for purely business purposes. I had gone to attend a business conference in Conrad, this hotel is 5 min walk from Conrad, so location is quite simply great. Its also close to Mansa area beach and close to few of the restaurants. The hotel has tiny rooms, you practically crawl in a crawl...

In Punta del Este to attend a conference at Conrad, and Ajax was a recommended hotel. Very small room for 3 people, but very adequate (only there to sleep at night). An amazing buffet breakfast included -- almost all cakes! Very convinient place to stay if you are attending a conference at the Conrad.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel right at the end of high season. The location was great (within two blocks of the beach, Casino Resort, and bus station). The staff was very accommodating, and the rooms, while small, were clean and comfortable. The rooms do not have air conditioning, but this was not a problem for us because...

“Ask to have a room with a view to the little inside garden they are quieter.. The first night We slept in a room that had a window onto the street. too noisy; the garden rooms may not be full of light but one can sleep peacefully. Enjoy Punta!”
