Great location and nice people work there. The breakfast was more than I expected. When I was there, the weather was cool and raining and as I checked-in, my room was already warm, with the heating on. I recommend to everyone that want to go to La Barra.
I had to pass through Colonia on the way back from a business trip to Montevideo. I was happy I did, in the end! The Colony Park Plaza Unique Hotel is also a spa resort. The rooms are gorgeous, the hotel fantastic to walk around. The staff were so helpful. I swam in both the indoor and outdoor pools, and in fact, though I had to check out, the staff let me us the pool until the end of that day! Colonia centre was a 30 minute walk away, down the river. I would definately go back to this relaxing spa hotel!!
"Unique hotel in a great area with a superb staff!"
I usually stay places a step up from this one, so I was kind of skeptical about what it would be like. It's located in a cool area of the historic Montevideo in an historic building. It's over a hundred years old with high ceilings and deco furniture. It was pretty clean and stayed that way. The staff is incredible. INCREDIBLE. And the guests who stayed there were really cool, too. Interesting people traveling around: educated, professional, students, hipsters etc from everywhere. I had an amazing experience there and highly recommend it. It was an excellent value for the price.
The hotel hosts were outstanding and provided a personalized level of service in a very pleasant setting with the sounds of nature in a surrounding of tall pines. The beach is only a few minutes away through a sparsely developed neighborhood of expensive vacation homes. The sandy shores are wide and expand for miles so you are not crowded and occasionally pass visitors from around the world who come to stroll, chat and relax au natural. I plan to go again on my next visit to Uruguay.
The owner welcomed us when we arrived - a very friendly and helpful man. It felt like we walked into his house, which we kind of did. It was very cute and a nice garden with a pool in the back. The rooms are clean but old, as you can see on the pictures. I strongly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
