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.

Lunch was calling so we found this cute little restaurant down the street from ...
... discovered 20th Street in Punta del Este - every designer name I have ever heard of and lots more! There's money here. Taxing afternoon on the beach.
We have been woken every morning very early by screeching birds and now we know what they are, Barbara. The real culprits are the Southern Lapwings who strut up and down the avenue on their long legs as if they own the place. Also joining the fracas are the Rufous Horneros who ...
... in itself after too many night buses accompanied by Spanish films at cinema volume. Uruguay took us back to home with endless green fields and three times more cows than humans. At least the steak hadn't finished now we had left Argentina! Montevideo was less endearing than its surroundings and less glamorous than its name sounds. A bit run down and edgy it seemed to be initially without charm but we managed to track it down. It turned out our Saturday arrival was perfect, ...
