Boutique hotel in Punta del Esta shopping area.

The AWA is the second Hotel on the Boulevard Gourmet, which is the local name for this street, because there are 9 very good restos here, some of them in hotels, like the AWA. In my book, the AWA gets the boutique hotel concept right. The staff is very warm, friendly, and accommodating. The in house restaurant, LIFE, is superb. They serve a very good prix-fix lunch, 3 courses, about $20, and will serve you at the pool. The Spa has a large jacuzzi, a dry sauna, steam room, gym, and massage rooms. The pool and back deck are large enough for sunning and relaxing. Overall, the AWA is better than the Sisai, but you can't go wrong with either one. The AWA has smaller rooms, i will say that, so if you want a big personal space, go with the Sisai. If you want superior service and in house dining, and a real spa, go with the AWA. You can walk to the Punta Shopping Center in 10 minutes, which is another good feature (Original language cinema is the top feature). To walk to the beach, i recommend the Playa Brava, a 15 minute walk from the AWA.

nice little hotel

Posted Jan 5, 2015
We spent 5 nights there. Nice little hotel, good and pleasant staff. But we think it is too pricey for what is is. Spa is basically non existent and the fitness room has only 2 treadmills and 1 ellipticall, a bit short....

Beautiful boutique hotel

Posted Dec 19, 2014 on Hotels
Beautiful hip hotel. Large elegant lobby. Farther from beach than I expected however hotel was quieter and out of the honky tonk area. Beautiful buffet breakfast. Self serve coffee which is a plus. It was a beautiful morning so we brought out breakfast to the pool area. Only negative is we were charged $8 to rent a bike for one hour. That felt chintzy.

Very nice hotel.

Pros: The comfortable room.
Situated in a quiet site, just a few kilometers from the Peninsula and the best restaurants of Punta del Est. I recommend to rent a car.

Clean, modern boutique hotel with friendly staff who spoke English well. We booked a king room but were put in a standard room with twin beds that was cramped. Also the music from the hotel bar was extremely loud and bled into our room on the 1st floor... not what you'd expect from a "wellness spa" and a little disappointing to be honest.
