Welcome to el Nido Beach Hotel’s website!

El Nido Beach Hotel (formerly known as ViaPark Hotel) has long been part of the Parque del Plata community and a favorite holiday destination of Uruguayans, Argentinians and Brazilians. Whether you are traveling with friends, family or surf buddies, el Nido Beach Hotel provides the perfect location for a beach vacation at a reasonable price. Recently purchased by a North American expat who immigrated to Uruguay, el Nido Beach Hotel now also welcomes English-speaking travelers: Americans, Canadians, EU-based, Oceania-based and other visitors.

Only 30 minutes from Montevideo’s international airport, and about 50 km from Montevideo itself, we’re a great base for exploring the entire country of Uruguay. Guests enjoy easy car or bus access to popular destinations like SaltoPiriápolis and Punta del Este and we can arrange transfers, car rentals, sports equipment rentals, and more. A twice-weekly outdoor market “feria” is a block away. Shopping, fitness centers, restaurants, nightclubs, antique stores, bakeries, arcades, a bowling center and more, are just a short walk from our beach location. We’re also only 3 kilometers from the casino and city Centro of Atlántida which offer more shopping, dining choices and historic buildings.

At el Nido, our staff is friendly and accommodating and the owner is often on site. We will do our best to make you feel at home with service in either Spanish or English.



In addition to our stunning beach location, every guest at the el Nido Beach Hotel can enjoy:

  •   Free WiFi throughout the building
  •   Cable TV in each room
  •   Breakfast buffet
  •   Air conditioning
  •   Comfortable mattress toppers and bedding
  •   And, most importantly, our Uruguayan hospitality with the spirit of tranquillo in our beautiful seaside locale

We are happy to help our guests arrange: bird-watching expeditions, fishing excursions, surf lessons and equipment rentals, sports equipment rentals, tours and excursions to other parts of the country, transport to and from the airport, car rentals and many other services for your enjoyment!
