Writing this review will take me a while since there is a lot to tell. After travelling around Argentina and Chile for four weeks, we decided to spend 6 nights here to relax and breath. We booked the Cielo room, where you have two bath tubs, one inside and one outside.

The Cielo room is on the first floor above the restaurant. It is a very spacious room - very very big bed (two twin beds actually), two balconies and a big bathroom. When we arrived, and we were in bathroom getting ready for the night, champagne arrived and little chocolate brownies. That was a nice little gift! The chocolate brownies you will get every night as the housekeeper will clean the room twice a day. Ours was called Silvia and she was so incredibly kind.

About the room:
- both Jacuzzis had problems when we were there. The one inside had buttons that were broken off so we couldn't control the bubbles. The one outside only served boiling hot water. Both problems were adressed with the staff at the reception  and were taken care of the same day.
- there were two twin beds next to each other so if you don't want, you don't have to sleep in the same bed ;-)
- privacy-wise: the balcony for us was very in sight. When we walked in the balcony, everybody could see us from head to toe. Also in the room, our room looks over the swimming pool and people can look inside.
- unfortunately the last two days we didn't have any internet in the room and we had to go down in the lobby to receive our emails. We asked the staff to fix it but unfortunately they didn't.

The room was amazingly spacious, but needed an upgrade since we felt it hasn't been used since a while.

Surrounding:
- view is amazing. The beautiful sunset and the walks you can make on the area.
- you can rent mountainbikes. We used them to cycle to the supermarket. Don't underestimate that Hill going back up!

Hotel:
- staff is very kind and very helpful. 
- they have a nice spa on the ground floor and a very nice pool. Even the gym was good - they have weights and not just cardio machines.
- this hotel is unique and very calm.
- the breakfast that is included is very good and we enjoyed this a lot.

Restaurant:
This is exactly where this hotel lost its two extra points. The food they serve here is good, but so overpriced!! If you would drink a normal bottle of red wine and two courses, you would spend 200 American dollars. For lunch, sandwiches are 30 dollars  (!!). To be clear: the food is amazing. But because you have no other option to go to (except renting a car or calling a cab) I felt forced to spend that much, also because the rooms aren't that cheap.

On our last night, we ate at the restaurant and we decided not to drink wine. We heard the older man in the restaurant  (he had grey hair and was a little fat) complain about us just drinking sparkling water. He treated us like we didn't matter.

Al together, this hotel is beautiful and has a beautiful scenery. We enjoyed our stay but the restaurant was forced and we felt mistreated a lot by the staff there. Just because we don't look like we cannot spend as much as the rich looking people around us, doesn't mean we can't.

We stayed here after a long trip in Argentina so it was just what we needed. The hotel has a fantastic energy, very relaxing and positive. Beautiful and unique art and antiquaries can be found everywhere including your room. I was very impressed by the service and helped us with some of our questions (i.e. rent a car and the car rental company actually came to the hotel). The hotel has gorgeous views and people specifically drive up there during sunset. I especially loved our room, which was very original with a artistic/bohemian touch. It felt like a little home for us. On top of everything the restaurant was THE BEST of our whole trip in Argentina and Punta del Este. The food was spectacular! The only thing is that we spent a lot of our time in La Barra which wasn't close but by car it was fine. Anyway we wouldn't trade the location and quality of this place for a bit of a drive. Was definitely worth it!

This is the place you come to relax. It is situated on a hill above Laguna del Sauce and offers great views of the surrounding area. At check-in they offer you a choice of beverage along with some light pastries. They offer an on-site restaurant, which was a bit on the expensive side but the food was decent and I guess that's what you pay for convenience. Punta del Este is not that far away if you want to get away, but there is also a grocery store nearby if you want to pick up snacks.

A very special place for a relaxing weekend. Great accommodations, excellent service and the fabulous view to the Laguna and city.
The tea for 2 in the afternoon is a must. The bedrooms have everything you can wish for, jacuzzi, a lovely porch, lots of space. As it is a large property you can also do trekking, biking or simply enjoy the silence. A very good choice if you want a luxury relaxing, near Punta del Este.
