I stayed here with my wife and my seventeen-year old son during the last Easter holiday, for three nights. This hotel, despite having three stars is a five-star friendly and neat hotel. Its personnel is most friendly and helpful. They speak Spanish of course but also English and Portuguese (Portuñol to be sincere) It is located just one block from... More

The front of this hotel means that you expect more but the rooms are old, tired and small. However you don't come to Punta del Este to sit in your room so if you are looking for somewhere just to sleep then this will do the job.

The staff is very nice and they always keep the room very clean. We even got a surprise to go out for dinner and come to room with the bed opened for sleep. The price is good and the parking is spacious. Nevertheless this is clearly outdated and being the #12 in tripadvisor is a bit too much. Anyway would... More

This is a wonderful little hotel, located yards from the port area of Punta del Este, by far its most beautiful spot. The views are spectacular; the waters so so calm. The in-room wifi is very good; the staff are friendly and helpful; the cleaners superb. They even clean in the evenings, because most guests are out on the town.... More

We have booked the hotel actually because of TripAdvisor and I must say: really good. The room rate we got was really good (incl. WiFi and breakfast). Staff was very friendly. It is about 10 min walk to the main beach (where it is sandy and no stones). You can get chairs for the beach from the hotel for free.... More

Small hotel located in a great spot in Punta del Este, near the port and beach. Room is small, cozy one would say, yet comfortable and clean. Bathroom was large enough and well accommodated.

This is a nice, small, old hotel located in downtown Punta. It's close to both Playas Mansa and Brava and you can walk anywhere from it. Breakfast is fair, but it's usually packed with few tables for too many people. The room was a bit small and the window was jammed due to lack of use (it took us some... More

We stayed at the Bonne Etoile for the past two nights and it was pretty great. The location is fantastic. We didn't have a pretty panoramic view, so I guess that was the only thing lacking, but it is in a great spot on the peninsula, only a couple minutes walk from either side.

“We had room 317, which was supposed to be a 4-person apartment suite. What is ACTUALLY was, was the end of a hotel hallway which had been partitioned off to combine two hotel rooms (still labeled as 314 and 315) into one hotel room with a little entryway between them. Each side had a bathroom with a shower, toilet and bidet, and one side had a king bed while the other side had two twin beds, plus another bed that rolled out from under one of the twin beds.”
