Thinking of going for a week here.

Has anyone been? I've heard pretty good things about it and wanted to check it out.

I thought about it before but that was part of a ferry trip from BA which is about 2 hours away 

If you are there for a week maybe think about doing it the other way, BA day trip

Was there in April. I really liked it there one of my favourite cities in South America. Almost everything in walking distance, beautiful blend of architecture in the main city and old town and nice tranquil atmosphere so very comfortable just walking around.

Only needs few days there though imo, not too much to do. Unless you want to do some trips or a stay in Buenos Aires, Colonia De Sacramento and Punta Del Este.

Kind of small city, really not much to do here I didn't think, but having said that it was pretty cool. Has a huge beach promenade stretching all the way from the airport to the city.  There's a market area that is lively at the weekends and great for your meat grills.

Flew in and got the ferry to BA from Colonia De Sacramento after 2 nights. I would suggest this is long enough. The ferry crossing from Colonia is shorter, so the bus journey & ferry is more or less equal to the ferry between MV and BA. You can make a triangular journey this way, spending half a day in Colonia, which is a nice town / unesco site.

Much more to do in BA, spend 4 or 5 nights there out of a week would be my suggestion! I absolutely loved BA and wish I'd had longer than my 4 nights there. I could make some food and beer recommendations if you decide to go there.
