Unlike any other hotel on Mansa Beach in Punta Ballena, the Hotel Casapueblo stands out with its Mediterranean-style architecture inspired by the nest of the hornero bird. The hotel was designed by Carlos Páez Vilaró, a renowned Uruguayan artist, and it used to be his summer house and a workshop. The hotel has 72 rooms, suites, and apartments with private balconies overlooking the sea. The whitewashed rooms are all bright and airy with beautiful wooden furniture.
There is a daily breakfast buffet as well as plenty of tasty international dishes at its Terrazas Restaurant. As its name suggests, it is a magnificent restaurant on a terrace with vistas of the sea.
Casapueblo’s spa and fitness center provide guests with relaxing treatments, a sauna, and a fully equipped gym. The hotel's main dome contains a museum where the Ceremony of the Sun is performed on the terraces every afternoon.
If you prefer to take in some culture and activities outside the hotel, you can use the Buquebus Ferry or the Ruta Interbalnearia (the national road that connects Montevideo with Punta del Este) along the coast to travel to local pueblos (towns). The city of Casapueblo is filled with dining options, bars, clubs, and other entertainment venues.
