TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Alhambra Punta del Este
Super convenient hotel right in the middle of Punta del Este. You can easily walk to any point of the peninsula. It's nothing fancy, but it was clean, showers had hot water, the wifi worked well, and there was a free breakfast. It was a bit pricey, but I would definitely stay there again.

... fast food fish shop. Then he drove me back to the hostel and I got all my stuff together as I was leaving at 9am the next day to go to Punta del Diablo. Annoyingly I bought food in punta del este because they have a bigger supermarket but I left it on the bus! I was quite tired and I forgot that I had put it in the bit above the seats.

After talking to others at lunch, we decided to book a full tour for Uruguay with Buquebus (the ferry company) if possible, but checked the web site for the ferry timetable to make sure we ...
... tired and in no need to get into an argument, my reply was that it was ok. Being truthful would reap no benefits, that was my answer. The real damage could be (and was) caused by ‘word of mouth’.
Heading to the owner’s jeep, the sun faced me directly for the first time that day. 'Tenderloin 0 Sun 1'. The rays felt like they burned into my soul. The retreat into the jeep thankfully came quickly. So with the Argentinians, we departed and I shed no tears in ...
... the time heading towards 3 a.m. thoughts of returning to the hostel were on my mind. While I felt no urgency to return, it was very late. To my utter surprise, the Chileans wanted to hit a nightclub. Half thinking it was too late, half not wanting to be in that hostel, my mind was ‘torn’. My choice? Party hard, of course!
It was a short walk to the club and the people near it looked very young. They were possibly in the 16-20 years age range. Should ...
