Service is great!

Stayed at this hotel for the FIBA Americas 16u basketball tourney held in Maldonado. The hotel staff was top notch in taking care of our questions and requests (there was always someone on duty who spoke English). As has been mentioned in other reviews, the renovation seems to still be in progress (June 2013), and our room still seemed a little dated, but everything worked (mini fridge, microwave, tvs) & they had wifi. The bathroom didn't have much room for toiletries, but the bath sheets were nice. Since it was the off season, a lot of restaurants were closed or closed early, but there were plenty of places by the beach to eat & we used the mini mart next to the hotel for snacks. There was also a full service laundromat in the next block where we were able to get a single load of clothes washed, dried & folded for abt a hamilton. We were able to navigate bus service to the venue and back for only a couple of US $ (with the stop coming back within a few yards of the hotel). And although we had the hotel set up car service for our trip from the MVD airport to the hotel; going back we took the bus which had a stop at the airport for approx US $10. The bus terminal is within 4 to 5 blocks of the hotel. Punta del Este is quiet & relaxed in the off season, the hotel was very convenient to restaurants & the beach - within blocks of both sides of the penisula and their service was really wonderful.
