Fodor's Review

A block from the beach in a tranquil corner of Ostende, this good-value hotel is a five-minute taxi ride from Pinamar's brash center, but seems worlds apart. The breezy, uncluttered rooms and apartments have cream-color ceramic floors, simple wooden furniture, and crisp cotton bed linens. What rooms lack in serious luxury, the owners (themselves long-term Pinamar vacationers) have made up for in thoughtful touches. One of Villa Ostende's two mock-Tudor buildings contains

apartments with beach-view balconies. Asado-addicted Argentine families are especially grateful for the dishwashing service and private barbecue decks. These look onto the large, sloping garden and deck-edged pool, which the hotel shelters from strong sea winds. Couples usually opt for the quieter block of double rooms. Its indoor pool has windows onto the lawn and a rock-grotto Jacuzzi; a sauna and steam room round off the cold-weather comforts.
