I spent 3 nights in Colonia in October, but I could have stayed longer. It's a gorgeous place with lots of stone buildings and cobble stoned streets and beautiful large trees. I would love to go back and spend more time there. The view from the lighthouse is great and I loved walking out onto the wharf. The view of the sunset is amazing and the people are very friendly. Colonia has a lovely feel. It is now one of my favourite places to visit.
Clean modern apartment hotel with good facilities, the heated indoor pool was great for our 3 yr old as it rained when we were there. Unfortunately there was a lot of noise from the road outside so we wished we'd brought earplugs. Cold buffet breakfast was OK and relaxed staff let us swim after checkout and use the gym showers. Cost about $4 in a cab for each trip to the centre which could mount up.
