I was at the hotel for 1 night only for a short business trip. The hotel is like living in the 60's - 70's and this can be fun only under certain circumstances but not when on business trip. Anyhow the facilities were quite poor but the thing that really annoyed me is that, I forgot in my room the...

Dear Mr. Geragimidis, In relation to your complaint, let me tell you that we have indeed enquired Fedex, in order to help you get the items you forgot in the room (a piece of blue and black underwear and an iphone charger). Despite the fact that as a 4 star hotel we do not offer this service, we were willing...

Uruguayan goverment has set-up a tax free system for tourism. Prices at the hotel restaurant aren't writen with VAT, that is a must, for that reason you dont get a proper invoice where you can see your tax free reduced.

Dear Ripoff Thank you very much for your comments, Foreigners do not pay VAT in Uruguay so in our Hotel & Restaurant you do not add 22 % tax to any Tourist with international ID. Our invoices are tax free. Kind Regards,

They had only been open about 2 months when we were there - late 2016 - but it seemed like they had been there a long time. Superb lakeside setting, fantastic amenities, thoughtful and friendly staff. Great restaurant, too, but they were still working on that. They even had a breakfast waiting for us at 4 AM! Relaxing, refreshing, and...

This hotel is like time traveling to the 60's. The environment, building, guest services, whites, bathrooms... EVERYTHING is like being in the 60's. Even the TV set is a 12 inch (I asked to buy one as a collectible). The service and kindness of everyone here is great. The most amazing thing is that the natural environment is BEAUTIFUL. Lake,...

I came to this hotel due to a cancelled Copa flight. Others on my flight were sent to another hotel which was a million times better. The location is close to the airport, far from everything else. The view is stunning! That is the only positive attribute. The lobby, the rooms, all of the inside has never been remodeled. It...

I was directed to this hotel because my flight back to Brazil was overbooked. The hotel looks very nice from outside. The lake view from the bedroom is very pleasant. The hotel is close to the airport but quite far from town. The room is large but needs urgent maintenance. Loose carpets, bathroom that feels old (the shower glass door...

We stay twice in this hotel: rooms are big and have a very nice view to a lake.- Desk people and maids are efficient.- If you have no car, this is not the place for you, but if you have one, the hotel is just 5 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes to Carrasco neighborhood and 20 minutes to downtown.-...
