  • Really a place to enjoy with family, with friends... or as you like. It is public and you have tables with benches, barbecue, which you can use free of charge, completely free, and a few meters, River, sand beach, an ideal place to bring children.

  • I share most of the views, a familiar, quiet place, clean, safe. I would without a doubt, we arrived by chance and pleasantly surprised us.

  • The place is cute: forest and beach to give is bathrooms quiet, with the water clean and in an environment with services basic (camping, restaurants). In high season it is unpleasant by the amount of public that accumulates, it is in a severe noise pollution (is it really necessary to open the car doors and put the music loud so I can hear you all Beach?) and overused Beach, with ruthless struggle for shaded areas included. Worst of all is if you do not have their own car. There is a service of bus that leaves from Fray Bentos, but where has a performance in the Spa deleted the stop and not is dignan put a poster of notice, with what one is is in land. The subject taxi is something apart: the rate official are 250 pesos. The first taxi driver took us 280 because just that day "had uploaded, which carries so many years". The second taxi driver charged US 300 "by order of the company". In the hotel, simple and simply, us said that us had cheated: is a pity that the quartermaster not take letters to solve an issue ugly that only harms to the industry tourist local.
