The setting is stunning, the new updated bathrooms, spectacular service and moderate prices for this town. Breakfast was nice except for the "queso de maquina", which is a processed cheese and a cheap ham.
I stayed in several places this visit to Punta del Este, was disgusted by them, ended up in La Posta. and it saved my vacation. In the end they recommended me to pay with AX, which reduced the price for the room from $160 to $120.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with a terrace on the second floor.

This Hotel was amazing in my visit to Punta de Este, great place to rest and eat. Close to all the clubs and great restaurants and the best beaches. The Hotel is very clean and the service very good.

Definitely I recommend it if you are going to party or to rest.

Room Tip: near to the restaurant.

clearly this hotel and restaurant were once hot spots. the hotel is still good but could do with a thorough overhaul. unfortunately it seems as if the surrounding houses have sprung up over the last few years in an uncoordinated fashion. the result is a mixture of styles and qualities that is not appealing. staff were extremely friendly.

Room Tip: choose a room in the main building, the outer rooms are more expensive and isolated.

Location is great, almost down by the beach, and close to pubs, restaurants. This is a classic Punta del Este hotel, but a bit dated.... The rooms seems to have undergone a renovation recently, but the building is old, no elevator it has only 3 floors, but if you have mobility issues, you should keep this in mind. the hallways are narrow, and there are a lot of steps everywhere.
That being said, it's a very "cozy" hotel. If you get a room facing the ocean, the view is awesome!
We stayed there off season, so the price was reasonable. the breakfast was not very good... only 2 kinds of bread, ham, cheese, butter and fruit jam. the bring you a basket of "bizcochos" to the table, but they where not good at all... I guess the breakfast is better during the high season.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with ocean view!

After a long search for a hotel around Punta del Este, the nicest of beach resorts in Uruguay, we thought to try La Posta. It was down a beach-front road south of Punta, almost a neighborhood to itself, more reminiscent of a small California beach town than South America. La Posta, I learned, had been in one family for many years and the woman who owned the complex was renowned in local society for her culinary skills and friendliness. Our room was not inexpensive, a bit over $200, but it was beautiful and the view overlooking Punta and a beach below the hotel and a mere hundred yards away was sublime. The large bed was romantically surrounded by drapes and was made with expensive linens and piled high with pillows. The bathroom was spotless tilework from floor to ceiling in intricate patterns and colorful motifs. We loved it. Each corridor was beautifully appointed with slightly worn furniture and aging paintings. Rough dark beams were set against bright stucco walls. Blue paint added plenty of color. The dining area was understated elegance, the breakfast was complete and very tasty. Staff were quite friendly, very helpful and courteous. Check in and out were handled with respect and kindness. The hotel has Wi-Fi, but was hard to connect in our upper and corner room. Not far away, just a walk in fact, were plenty of nice shops and little cafes where the locals and the seasonal visitors congregated. We would not hesitate to stay there again, especially for any special occasion we might wish to create. We simply loved the place.
