Hotel Parque Oceánico is a small beachside hotel in La Coronilla, a quaint area along the Atlantic Ocean known for its picturesque quiet setting and lovely people. This self-contained Uruguayan resort represents relaxation off the beaten path, where secluded beaches, natural forests, and endless outdoor amenities exist within an unexpected paradise.
Built in 1942, the whitewashed walls of Hotel Parque Oceánico are nestled between lovely trees and a charming beach farm full of white horses and various birds. Guests may choose from 26 old-fashioned yet substantial rooms and apartments, all with en-suite bathrooms and Jacuzzis, complimentary pool towel service, and views of the ocean or park. Some feature spectacular terraces overlooking the ocean, and eight exclusive apartments are perfect for families in need of two separate bedrooms.
The hotel’s large dining area looks out onto the park and features everything from South American breakfasts and flavorful dinner menus to tasty cakes and poolside snacks and cocktails. Kids will love the playground and game room with its ping-pong and foosball tables. And while the property boasts three swimming pools—two outdoor and one indoor—as well as a warm Jacuzzi, the real highlight is its proximity to the beach, less than a block away along a lovely walking path. Many of Uruguay’s beaches are overpopulated during the summer months, but the clean, deserted beach by the hotel is quiet with just a handful of families building sandcastles and a couple of local fishermen in the distant waters.
Hotel Parque Oceánico is the perfect base for day trips unique to the region, such as visits to the seal colony at Cabo Polonia, rugged beach excursions to Punta del Diablo, duty-free border shopping in Chuy, and meandering through the Santa Teresa National Park to the San Miguel Fort. There is no better way to experience this magical land than by horseback riding and hiking through its forests, hills, and beaches, surfing in its excellent waters, and bird watching to discover some of the 400-plus species indigenous to the region.Request Information
