Posada Arenas de Jose Ignacio
Ranked #2 of 9 Hotels in Jose Ignacio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 January 2018

This is a corner of paradise! Very quiet and simple place in the middle of the nature.
as usual my ups and downs:
ups:
1. Customer service and attention: The owners Fernando and Ester are always around. nice people to have a chat with and very generous with their suggestions. excellent attention.
2. Location: far away from the busy village, this is an oasis. it is quiet and silence. if you don't want to drive to de village (5 mins) you can walk up the road for two of the most famous restaurants of the area.
3. You can walk to the beach passing through the dunes. The beach is wonderful, wide and quiet. ideal for long walks or yoga practise. you can also stay in and enjoy the pool.
Downs:
1. it is really hard to find downsides. definitely you need to hire a car to make the most of this holidays. but this is everywhere in jose ignacio.
2. you don't want to leave!!!
3. ...cannot find a third point!!!

My boyfriend and I were fortunate to make a last minute trip to Jose Ignacio and stay here. I can’t rave enough about it.

Room
I worried that being in a garden-y hotel by the beach, I’d have to worry about bugs. Not at all. Never once had anything unsavory in the room which they kept immaculately clean. Daily fresh towels, housekeeping. It was done to perfection. Room was comfortable with a fridge and back garden. Solid WiFi.

Grounds
Absolutely stunning. Gorgeous pool and lots of comfortable areas for lounging. My boyfriend and I spent plenty of time just hanging out at the hotel and could not have been more comfortable. Comfortable furniture with a great view.

Staff
This is where this beautiful place shined even more. Staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The young man with the beard was particularly amazing. He’d come to greet us when we came back and help us with bags. He made up a tray with plates and glasses and carried it to our room when we wanted to have some snacks. He seriously went above and beyond. I wish I knew his name, but thank you so so much. I’ve stayed in 5* hotels and this service was up there, even better by being so personal.

Jose Ignacio is a beautiful, wonderful place and if I have the pleasure of coming back, there’s no where else I’d rather stay.

Fernando, whole staf perfect location. Not last but definitely not
least was great - one of the best in area - Marismo restaurant
(maybe 25m from Posadas). To center of Jose Ignacio and ... to La Huella restaurant by the beach is 40
minutes walk.
If you looking for relax this is te place!

Poseda Arenas is a haven in the quiet beachside resort of Jose Ignacio - close enough to Punta Del Este for those who seek to be at the centre of things but a bit classier for our tastes. The hotel is charming and comfortable offering basic accommodation in a stylish, small and modern building with comfortable facilities including a small pool close to the beach. The beach is a bit wild with no cafes or facilities but great surf for those who have a board or wish to kite-surf. Fantastic restaurants within a few minutes' drive bit most carry the Punta Del Este problem price tag. Highlight for us was a visit to Bodega Garzon with some of Uruguay's best wines.

What makes Posada Arenas special is the staff - so friendly, accommodating and helpful; exceptionally nice people who go to great lengths to ensure that guests are comfortable and happy and give great tips on local events and facilities.

Only (very slight - for us) negative is that the accommodation might need some renovation; looks slightly dated. Bit this would not prevent us returning as we enjoyed our stay tremendously.
