We travelled as a family of 5 adults in February/March of 2009. At time of travel we found out that they were no longer making flights direct from the UK to Margarita.
We can't say we didn't enjoy our holiday, but we can say they were a lot of things we could and would of changed. We had been told not to accept the first rooms we were put in as they always try and put you in the rooms nearest the entrance, which at the time were dated, and smelt of damp, probably as they weren't used as much as they should have been. We got re located to nearer reception, but because of this we were split up. I had a room to myself 2 floors above my brothers who were sharing a room and my parents were two blocks up the concourse. Not ideal but we made the best of a awkward situation. The only problem we had with insects etc was after they fumigated???!!!!!no complaints prior to that!
The pool area was fantastic, spotlessly clean, 1 gentleman cleaned the pools every day, he was a credit to the hotel! Bar area was ok, they served drinks all day and bought out afternoon tea around 4ish. But didn't understand the concept of hot water to make tea with, kept bringing cold water!
Food was a lot to be desired for, it was very hit a miss. Breakfast was fine, plenty of selection. It was lunch and evening meals that we struggled with. And of top of that unless you got there early, they struggled to seat us, we were only a family of 5, not that big but they panicked if you were a group bigger than 3! We did enjoy the bbq night, I will give thir dues, that was very tasty.
Entetainment group did what they could, they were very talented but it was a bit repetitive. Their 'we will rock you' tribute night was excellent!
All in all we had an ok stay, made better by the friends we made and our own entertainment as a family, but we wouldn't go back there!!
