Posada del Faro is a Mediterranean-style boutique hotel overlooking the beach in the fashionable Uruguayan village of Jose Ignacio. Posada del Faro is an intimate retreat away from, but within easy reach of Punta del Este's buzzing scene.
Posada del Faro, a delightful beachfront property located next to the lighthouse in chic Jose Ignacio, is the perfect base for relaxing and exploring the local gourmet restaurants and wild Atlantic shores north of Punta del Este.
13 crisp and cleanly designed rooms with whitewashed walls, elegant throws and brick fireplaces provide comfort and a seaside feeling. All rooms have magnificent outlooks of either the pool or the beach.
In season (December-February), the area becomes one of South America's gastronomic capitals, with many of the continent's top chefs descending to take charge in the 20 or so restaurants. For the rest of the year Jose Ignacio is the perfect place to learn to surf or kite surf, take long beach strolls, bird watch in the nearby lagoons, whale watch or to play golf in Punta del Este.
When to visit
La Posada del Faro is set in the exclusive seaside village of Jose Ignacio, 30-minutes from the glitzy resort town of Punta del Este.
