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.

We spend in Posada Arenas few days and it was great time thanks to
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.

We spent a few nights here in November, it is quiet at this time of year so makes for a very tranquil break.

The posada is set just outside of Jose Ignacio (a short drive or 40 minute walk along a beautiful & deserted beach) a couple of minutes walk to the beach in woodland. It is a wonderful building with a lovely pool. Everything was clean but there are some ants/insects from the forest which might not be good for everyone but not a problem for us. The only small issue we had was the boiler in our wardrobe was quite loud and started up at what seemed like quite random times, maybe it was for the whole of the 4 rooms at the end of the posada, anyway we got used to this after a while.

Fernando and his daughter were very welcoming and always checked that we were ok, they were very helpful at all times including book dinner reservations for us. Special thanks to Santiago who was so helpful during our stay, he arranged an early breakfast on our departure day and was so pleasant and polite.

Breakfast was delightful, I really loved the freshly squeezed orange juice.

I really loved how quiet it was and it made a lovely home for us to explore Jose Ignacio and beautiful beaches.
