Starting off with the positives, the hotel has a great location near a beach in La Barra, and a nice-looking territory. I should have gotten the hint when I was making the reservation. Almost none of the staff speaks English, and simply making a reservation required a very complicated series of emails and international phone calls that lasted more than...

We stayed at La Posta in early March, 2009. Overall we were very pleased with out stay. It is a great location in La Barra . It is right on the beach and close to shops and restaurants. We were very happy we did not stay in Punta del Este (a mini Miami Beach). La Barra has charm and is...

Not a whole lot of frills here, but you're steps away from shops, restaurants, a beach and surfspot; so what do you need? Pretty friendly staff, didn't really challenge them with anything but they seemed nice enough. Love the location.

The hotel is in La Barra. Only 10ks or so from Punta but in a different world. La Posta is low rise, with interesting architecture and a few yards from the sea. We'd just hit low season when the room cost $120. In high season it's US$360. Sea views, friendly staff, good food - when the restaurant was open. But...

I stayed at La Posta for 4 days in March 2007. This is a curious hotel. Its major attribute is its location overlooking the beach and ocean, ideal for leisurely walks or watching the surfers. The restaurant is very good and the staff easy going and friendly. Internet access is possible. However, while the hotel may have been a luxurious...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on March 1-3, 2007. The hotel is located in the beautiful La Barra area of Punta Del Este. I highly recommend staying in La Barra as it seems to be the hub of Punta's restaurant and bar scene. It is also very close to some amazing beaches and a nicely removed from...

I stayed at La Posta for five days last February. The location is outstanding, those staying at Mantra were quite jealous indeed. Had an oceanview room which I thought was relatively small for American standards (compared to like a resort in Miami) but in line w/ what you consider a nice size room in Europe. Bathroom can use some updates,...

When we arrived in Punta del Este we spent the first night in the San Rafael, the old hotel icon of Punta. But one night was more than enough as the best time have passed. So I convinced my wife to look for a hotel in LaBarra which I like more. It was her first time in Uruguay and the...
