Punta experience

Posted Jan 20, 2012
The hotel is in a very convenient location, parking is a challenge and the rooms need some heavy duty face lift. The stuff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast area is good and the goodies are ok. Do no expect scrambled eggs...not the deal, some mini-sandwiches that are not bad and fruit. Clean and neat. The pool is nice. It has wifi. The shower heads need to be replaced. The room is way too modest but fairly saying the priced is good for Punta at this time. If some minor details are fixed like redoing the rooms is not bad.

Charming

Posted Oct 31, 2011
Everything about this hotel is charming but for the very small rooms. As the high rise towers and modern shopping environment closes in on this very cute little hotel more and more it reflects another time. Although not as modern as the newer and pricier hotels the Camelot is very well maintained and very clean. The breakfast buffet is prepared and cooked by a young woman who turns out marvelous cakes and pastries for those who enjoy that sort of thing with their breakfast. The staff including the industrious cleaning ladies were very attentive and friendly. The small swimming pool was well maintained and clean and the adjacent yard and garden suitable for kids to play. The rooms are very small and really best for sleeping only and the bathrooms were showing their age but once again very clean. People do smoke in this hotel however and that was it's biggest drawback. When we arrived the smell of smoke was pervasive in the hallway and on our complaint were moved into a room behind the office. During our two day stay we only smelled smoke that one time. You really do need a car here though because the hotel lies between Punte del Este and Maldonado. There are a couple of parilla's and bars only a 5 minute walk away however and better priced than the downtown restaurants. All in all this was a reasonable value 3 star in Uruguay's most popular resorts.

Relaxation guaranteed

Posted Mar 26, 2010
Really pretty hotel with lovely grounds - a really nice pool area with plenty of loungers, surrounded by greenery, and surrounding lawns to picnic, BBQ or just lounge in. Rooms were smallish but perfectly formed - after having read other reviews I was expecting the rooms to be cramped & the bathroom tiny, but that was just not the case - perfectly good size. Management was amazing - excellent service, very helpful, and great with flexibility on late checkout. Breakfast buffet was also extensive and, for those who are there to relax, served until very late. Served in a really nice first floor space with balconies for al fresco breakfast should you wish. A bit of a walk into the main town on the peninsula & taxis are expensive, but perfectly doable, and the place itself is so nice you might just want to relax there most of the time anyway. Plus the environs are actually a lot nicer than in town. Very good supermarket & shopping centre with fast food eats just round the corner too. Nice empty beach 10 minutes walk away. Better than any hotel we saw in the main town - would recommend to anyone.

OK but not great

Posted Nov 11, 2009
The hotel is OK, but not great. The staff was helpful and courteous. The price was OK for the Oct/Nov season when I was there. The place is clean, the rooms are somewhat small, the beds are small and narrow (typical of non-US hotels). The bathroom was tight, ie: doors that can not fully open, showers that are narrow, etc. They did have free internet access when it worked. It was out of commission for a few days. The hotel was not able to get the phone company to make it work (not the hotel's fault) and on just one day there was no water for a while (again, not the hotel's fault), when the water came on again, it was brown.... parking is a bit of an issue at times.......Last criticism is that the hotel charges you 10% additional on the bill if you use a credit card.....the pool, hot tub, bar and grounds were actually very nice.......I would stay there again.......
