Nice place to stay in the cool beach of Jose Ignacio. Jacuzzi in the bedroom. Nice staff, good services, free bikes to ride around. Associate the breakfast served by the pool. Needs a little extra attention to the overall maintenance.

My husband and I stayed at this charming hotel last month, and were wonderfully surprised by the hotel's genuinely nice staff. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was served just minutes after we would call for it in the morning. It was delicious and homemade - a perfect start to the day. The rooms were cozy, casual and...

Before I get started, let me say that yes, I am totally aware that price isn't really a reflection of quality in Punta Del Este and environs, its a reflection of scarcity value. That being said, at bare minimum, a hotel is a place to sleep. If you can't sleep while paying for that very service, it isn't worth anything....

The breakfast is large and delicious (bread, jam,...

We spent Christmas at La Viuda and had a wonderful vacation there. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we felt a little bit like at home. Rooms are spacious and light with a big tarrace and a lovely view over the ocean. The beach right next to the hotel was quiet and relaxing, for people watching and more...

“Surely better in intermediate season. Get upper floor sea view. Bedrooms with terrace in front have more sun in the evening.”

“If you have babies/toddlers, I highly recommend the bigger rooms on the first floor, The space is great, plus they bring you breakfast to eat on the patio right outside your room so you do not have to go far.”

“We stayed in the large suite on the top corner of the hotel. It had a HUGE balcony with a couch and chairs - and it had the BEST view of the sunsets!”
