Where to stay in Maldonado

The main area of interest when visiting Maldonado remains the Atlantic beachfront. Here, find well-maintained resort-style hotels with long lists of amenities, along with newly built high-rise options boasting extensive sea views. Move just a few streets back from the water to find attractive boutique hotels and the occasional guesthouse. If you're willing to forego the beach, have a look in the Centro district: this inland neighborhood offers a good set of atmospheric, colonial-era hotels, along with simple guesthouses on its many side streets.
