This must be the most overhyped, overpriced, boring and soulless lower middle class ("upscale" in South America) resort I have ever been to. What do people see in this place?

The glitz, the glam... Punte del Este baby. Never been there, it is far too expensive.
More like concrete jungle and ugly people.

We visited Piriapolis today and I liked that place a lot more. It has a bit of an old world charm, cute little beach and hills in the back country.

Sounds to me like the Food in Buenos Aires has something in common with Punta del Este....

The lower middle class doesn't go anywhere cause they cant afford it. And where is Mardel? cause if you mean Mar del Plata you got to be stoned...or talking about the futbol huligan elite..

I think if you stay in the main high-rise part of the area you are right, but there's a lot more to it than that. Some very nice residential areas and some great beaches, one of my favorite places in S.A. The food is about the same as in Argentina but more expensive definitely.

Yes, some surrounding areas are nice. Punta Ballena with Casapueblo for example. But PDE itself is crap that markets itself as Saint Tropez of South America. That's a really bad joke.

BTW, the restaurant prices in PDE are higher than in Vancouver and the service is pretty bad.
