I will begin by saying this is not a sponsored post, and my review is 100% truthful.
A few weeks ago I had the great opportunity to go to Punta del Este in Uruguay for 4 days. I had never gone there and I got to go to a 5 star hotel - Conrad Punta del Este Resort & Casino.
My expectation was big, first because of the pictures of the hotel, its' location and all the activities it has like the casino, and the nigh club.
And obviously, when you go to a 5 star hotel, you expect 5 star level, specially when you are paying quite a high price.

Rooms were quite spacious, and every evening we would get little chocolates on our pillows.
The bedding was nice and white and the curtains were fully working. We had quite nice balconies with seating area too.
The bathroom had the amenities you would expect in which had a very nice smell and feel, but the bathtub looked grimy, the shower taps were loose with pieces of wall tiles missing, and a strong pungent smell coming from the drains.
These had really good view and quite cool facilities, but it was weird to see the outdoor pools having a lot of floor tiles missing.

Coffee and tea was not served at the tables for us, that was a luxury only people from a conference got, right in front of us.

Food was quite good tasting at breakfast, tea and dinner, some had some beautiful presentation while others not so much. What shocked us the most was the outrageous price of food for a not such amazing variety and presentation.
