This was a new spot for all of us in Uruguay and we enjoyed the property, open spaces, relaxed atmosphere, and focus to food and wine. Given there are only five rooms on this property, the experience remains individual and private.

Upon arrival, we were handed the keys and told to enjoy the property and do as we wish! This is the simplicity of Uruguay. The staff are there for you when needed, will make any arrangements you desire, but otherwise remain very laid back and hands off.

While the property is established, the rooms have been redone and include upgrades. The grounds include beautiful vineyards which you can view from various vantage points, stroll, bike, or take advantage of the property golf cart and go! Given the limited rooms, the pool area is private and you may even find it all to yourselves. There is a small work-out room next to the pool.

Breakfast is included and lunch and dinner options cannot be matched in this area. Wine tours and tastings are available with the hands-on sommelier. There is also an on-site store offering fresh-baked pastries, farm-fresh dairy goods and cheeses, fruit conserves, and olives for purchase. The dulce de leche is the best in Uruguay and once you get home, you'll be happy you have at least a jar.

You have access to the Hyatt Carmelo Resort & Spa and various other locations to catch the sunset and a handful of lovely wineries to visit. Ignacio is helpful to provide input and guide you in your stay. There is peace in the quietness of the location and the birds, butterflies, and frogs only add to the remote experience. I look forward to return...

Room Tip: I loved the Pinot Noir room with it's cozy feel and light and modern touch.

Great hotel with five rooms situated in a winery/vineyard.Two of the older rooms are huge.
Reception plays a loop of Dylan and Cash whilst the pool has The Gladiators and Marley on a loop .....Brilliant! The restaurant plays the blues!
Enough said about about the music...This is is great hotel in a beautiful setting Good rustic food and very nice wine.
Pool area superb as there are very few guests around
Staff very helpful and friendly especially when the safe won’t open!
If you are looking for a great bottle of wine or two and to chill then this is the place to do it.
Bird watchers will also be happy here as birds of every colour are everywhere

I cannot believe this is a Relais and Chateau property ,

It is a beautiful property in a great location but after a warm welcome it was all down hill from there . The room (Pinot Noir) was huge with a large bathroom ,all comfortably fitted out. However the white painted wooden (bedroom ) and concrete( bathroom ) floors were very dirty,stained and sticky. I pointed this out to an elderly lady in reception who showed little interest at first but then said she would tell housekeeping. Nothing happened ! The toilet seat was also badly chipped. On our second night there was no turn down and we complained to the same lady who responded by saying it was her night off !
The floor tiles around the restaurant were also filthy as were the cracked floor tiles in their kitchen.
Pool was lovely but nobody came to offer drinks . In fact during our 3 day stay nobody came to see us and there was a lack of management. We would have moved but there was no where else to go. On leaving we complained again and another reception lady ,who said she was covering showed little interest until I showed her the floors.
A great shame because with some strong management input ,maintenance,care and attention this really could be a super place to stay.

Travelling with 3 grown children. Gorgeous grounds and rooms. Interesting tour of the vineyard. The Website listed lots of activities but these were not offered to us. It was sleepy, beautiful and very relaxing. We enjoyed the pool and drove around the vineyard in their 4x4 and bikes. Complimentary grappa miel and cognac was enjoyed. Rooms are stunning! We would have enjoyed a wine tasting in the cellar but it was never offered.

Room Tip: There are only 5 rooms at Narbona and all of them are lovely

When you travel to the Narbona Wine Lodge, prepare to time travel back to 1909. The lodge and estate is kept in good shape and it felt a bit like living in a museum. Old accessoires everywhere and lots of oldtimers, cars trucks and tractors.
We stayed for three nights over NYE and had the Rose room. Others have complained about the poor noise insulation and the old bathroom - yes, it’s a 1909 house. The floors squeak, the windows are single insulation, etc. Not a big deal at all.
And all kept in very good shape and state.
The room overlooks most of the property, from vineyard to pool and restaurant.
Everything is set up with great attention to detail and love.
And I think that’s what this stay was about: we felt welcome and cared about from beginning to end. The exchange upfront about travel arrangements etc was prompt and very pleasant. Checking was mostly done online in advance, check out was smooth as anything, in between we were constantly looked after and pampered.
The wine tasting that comes with the suite booking was one of the best we attended. The setting was great, the wines lovely and the cheese (their own produce) pairing a very smart and welcome addition to the experience.
We’ve been to better hotels - technically - but they certainly lacked the love and hospitality we experienced in Narbona. This is what sets boutique hotels apart from chains.
The surroundings have also much to offer, with plenty of other small wineries and also beaches close by.
Minibar is for free except the wines, which also come at very fair prices. There’s also free honey grappa and cognac for all guests. You should talk to the lovely ladies that cover admin and reception, there’s is tons of things to he property and around and they are more than happy to help. We could have stayed couple of days more to see it all.
We have not stayed at other Relais & Chateau properties but now we are certainly very eager to try others.
Separate review for the restaurant to follow.
