The resort. We were in a timeshare. A large open plan kitchen and lounge area with separate double bedroom. 2 bathrooms with showers and toilets. Also 2 T.V,s, . Spacious and clean but dated.
Restaurants. We ended up eating at the resort most days by using the mixed package. This was the full buffet breakfast and full buffet dinner which included beer,wine and spirits.
All for 300 bolivars per person per day. I.e only 12 USD.
Staff. Found all to very friendly helpful. We do not speak Spanish but it was not a problem. Had a minor electrical fault in the unit and twas fixed in 30 mins. No complaints with service.
Beach. We come from a country with beautiful beaches and go to many tropical resorts around the world so are spoiled. The beach is pleasant but the water quite cold.
Play el aqua is warmer on te other side and el yaqui for my windsurfing warmer still.
Like Michael in another post Dunes is isolated but for a base it was great for us. We enjoyed our stay. Meant to say earlier beds were good and no problem with hot water.
Magic Tours. Did our return flight from Caracas, a hotel booking and an overnight tour to Los Roques with Ciro. Abanto. Very professional,prices were excellent, all connections went without a hitch and would highly recommend.
On this note we got on to him through. Dan. O!Brien from casatrudel.com who was also great and has a marvellous web site.
Rental car.USD 130 for the week from Budget and to fill the tank 50 cents. Yes cents. Driving tricky but us we have been in worse places. Just ave to be alert. Because like to spend our days getting about a taxi is not an option.
Our blacmarket conversion rate was 25 bolivars to the USD. This made everything very cost effective.
In conclusion we were happy with the hotel, the people and enjoyed our stay. Felt safe in Margarita and if you are concerned about beach vendors, try Asia these are like babes.
