Fodor's Review

Originally opened in 1921 as a summer escape for the Uruguayan elite, this stunning Belle Époque waterfront building, known as the "palace on the sand," underwent an intensive restoration process and reopened in splendor as part of the Sofitel chain. The decadent French style, including the original gold detailing and Louis XVI-style armchairs, has been modernized in a way that makes the hotel feel both fresh and grand. Rooms, which once hosted the likes of poet Federico

García Lorca and now welcome guests such as Sir Paul McCartney, include dark wood furniture, plush beds, and spacious marble baths; those on the front half of the property enjoy views of serene Carrasco Beach. Don't miss lunch or dinner at the hotel's elegant restaurant, 1921, which employs one of Uruguay's best sommeliers.
