Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted Dec 21, 2016
Nice hotel close to the beach. Windows not clean. Sea is taking its toll on the structure but it does have historic charm. One of the few hotels in PDE actually on the beach. Food prices in la mar are crazy expensive.

Staff are amazing. Fabulous restaurant!

Posted Oct 27, 2016
Location: Sit by the marina and enjoy fresh fish, good wine and/or a cappuccino. Good artist market downtown. Very relaxing. No night club scene, which was fine
Very serene! Loved the staff and the restaurant was great. Short bus ride to central Punta Del Este or a nice long walk. It was perfect.

Excellent hotel on the beach

Posted Sep 20, 2016
Pros: The location. The restaurant. Everything.
Cons: Indoors swimming pool cleaning.
Location: Walk along the beach. Have dinner at Al Mar restaurant (in the hotel).
Extraordinary hotel in Punta del Este, on the beach. Balinese ambiance and decoration. Excellent restaurant with amazing views of the ocean. Indoors and outdoors swimming pool. Only adults.

Serena on the Beach

Posted Sep 2, 2015
Pros: location, staff, breakfasts
Cons: There could be more plugs in the rooms to make it easier to operate and charge electronics.
Location: At the leading edge of the main strip just far enough out of town.
This is a very chic hotel located on the beach with lots of understated elegance. With it's location being right on the beach it is obviously on the top of the heap of most Punta del Este hotels. The hotel staff was very nice and the breakfasts were fantastic and something I looked forward to every morning. I want to mention our waiter named Fernando as he was a true gem and greeted us every morning with perfect service and food!

Very nice location directly at the beach. Actually the only hotel in Punta del Este with direct beach access.

Great hotel on the beach

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Besides being directly on the beach, the facility is well coming, warm, and extremely refreshing. The staff are most accommodating. The only negative was the restaurantwhich really was not great, but charged quite a bit.

Great and quiet use of beachside.

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: Huge shower place. Extremely quiet environment. Beautiful beach.
Overall a great hotel. Al Mar restaurant has some steep prices and fees, you might want to check them before entering to avoid surprises...
