We originally booked one night and extended every morning. In total we stayed 5 nights. The pool was sunny and warm even when it was windy out at the beach. This area of the peninsula was pretty quiet (though it was in early April). We are very happy with our stay at Atlantico Boutique.
The best place to rest
The hotel is in a very good location. There was no problem with checking in very late. The reception staff was very helpful. The rooms were tidy and clean and had everything what it takes for a turist like me who travels with barely anything. Problem with locking the door. You have to make some "excercise" to find out how the door of your room can be locked.
We decided to go to Punta del Este on the spur of the moment and booked the Aqua Hotel as a splurge since it was almost twice the price of other 3* hotels we had booked on the trip. The "luxury" room was a very cramped bedroom with a comfortable queen bed, nightstand and TV. The bath was a tub/shower with heated floors, a very nice feature. The other part of the suite was a large room with one sofa, 2 hard chairs and a small round table. since the TV was in the bedroom it was of no use to us, but the staff allowed us to change to a better arranged room with no wall separating the 2 spaces. The maid was our favorite employee, very friendly and sincere. The all white decor was very dirty, carpets had stains, upholstered furniture was dirty not worn, window in the first room didn't lock, and the clerk was annoyed when I asked if she had given us the wrong room because this did not seem like a superior room. The water pressure in the shower was very poor, the faucet in the sink produced more water. We walked out the 2nd day even though it was non refundable. It was worth paying more to just go elsewhere; that was the splurge!
Although I was there in the off-season, the location is great & the small staff worked hard to ensure that everything went well. This is an expensive area for a good part of the year. There is nothing posh about the place. It'll need another renovation before too long
