By far the best place we've stayed in Uruguay. The entire personnel was friendly and willing to help with every single detail to make our stay better. They even gave me a thermos to bring to the room with me so my 1 year old would have her warm milk as soon as she woke up. That speaks volumes to... More

We travelled as a family (5 members) and we stayed at the "Casas de Campo", nice houses 2 kms away from the main building, but still within the property. Even when these houses are a little far away, you hardly go back there during the day. You will spend 10-15 hours in the main part of the hotel, using the... More

Very high standard for a family country side experience. The spa is highly recommended. The estancia staff was warm, as expected from Uruguayan people. The food was always fresh, and they were always prepared to do changes on children meals, and the desserts were lovely. Enjoy!

Very friendly reception and attention at this 600 hectare ranch on Uruguay's main southern highway. They have hotel rooms at the main area and 3 independent houses around 1.5m away, where we stayed with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large living room with DirecTV.
