“El Cardon and Los Mangos-Fabulous Combination”
Reviewed 12 January 2011

Decided to stay here for 3 weeks based on reviews and am glad we did. My husband and I prefer to stay away from all inclusives for vacations more than a week so we rented an apartment from Los Mangos. This side of the island has fabulous beaches and depending what you're looking for, there is a beach to suit everyone. We liked Parguita as it had constant waves to body surf in but La Caribe /Hysperia were probably the prettiest. Paul and Tatiana of Los Mangos were super fun and friendly. Tatiana has a wicked sense of humour and Paul is hystertically funny most of the time. The bar and restauraunt are a fun place to hang out although we rarely managed to stay up past 11:00. Food tasty and beer icy cold. We stayed in the apartment instead of the B&B which was perfect for us. The only thing that I would comment on is that the apartment can sleep 6 but there is really only one bedroom. On the second floor there are bunk beds in an open area and there is a third floor loft area with a double bed but no privacy. So, not great for 6 adults but fine for a family. The apartment is a little tired but is more than adequate. We rented a car for 2 weeks (gas is incredibly cheap) and driving is fine but can be hairy so use caution. Also, money can be changed at stores at rates double than banks so carry US$ money with you and change as needed. If you use official rates, the vacation will be twice as expensive. We brought $4k US and changed as needed. We were warned multiple times to never chaneg on the streets. Los Mangos is a fantatsic place for a vacation unless you're looking for a party nightlife. And the doggies, Freddy and Manga are awesome.

During my holidays on Margarita Island I had so much fun and could really relax at the same time. The main reason for this was that I luckily chose the right place to stay. The staff Paul(really charming and amusing English guy) and his gorgeous and very talented (handicraft and cooking, mmh)venezuelan wife run this wonderful place right at the sea. The place has a very relaxed atmosphere and beautiful rooms, a bar and a restaurant and a chill-area with some hammocks to hang out. They also have two lovely dogs which you will want to take home with you if you ever decide to leave again :-) Enjoy !!
(you can also do a lot of nice activities and see the rest of the island from there)

Wonderful, personal and familiar service. We had a are very nice room (posada) with shower, W.C., tv, air condition, enough place to stow the luggage. It has been very clean and you can feel the love to the little details and the personal touch. The bar and the whole Posada is very, very nice thanks the simpathic staff and owners. You can enjoy a good breakfast on the beautiful terrace which is upstairs... wonderful view. The food and the service is excellent (please try lobbster - fantastic). Best quality for a very good price. The position ist perfect, the beach of El Cardon is nearby. You have to across only the street (quiet). Perfect starting point for making excursions around Isla Margarita or to the main land of Venezuela. Airport Porlamar ca. 45 minutes, Playa El Agua ca. 10 minutes. We have enjoyed very much our stay. Many, many thanks for all, dear Tatjana, Carolina, Paul and Carl with little Manga, Negrita and Freddy. We felt us in paradise at earth.

For those of you that arent looking for a big assembly line experience, and if you are going to stay up in northeast Margarita Island near Playa El Agua area, I highly recommend Los Mangos. If you are renting a car or have transportation, I would recommend staying here even if you want to spend most of your time in the city. Its only a 20-30 minute drive from Sambil. This puts it in a safer and more quiet area aswell. The only big drawback I see is that it doesnt have a pool, but it is right across the street to the beach.

Tracey runs a great little inn. The biggest thing that impressed me was how CLEAN and well maintained the place was - my room and also the restaurant/hang out areas - especially compared to alot of other Venezuelan accomodations and standards. On top of that, the biggest thing that impressed everybody was THE FOOD. Wonderful tasting, healthy, fresh, made to order. In fact, I met atleast a dozen couples who walked over and were staying at nearby hotels where " the food is crap" there, and heard that there was a little place a few blocks away with great food (Los Mangos) for the British, American, Canadian palette. The only draw back - be prepared to relax, the food will take a little while to come out. (Coffee,Tea, and drinks come out quick) But thats why I went to Margarita in the first place, is to relax and not be in such a hurry with everything.

Tracey also employs some great people who are helpful. It is literally across the road from the beach. An italian restaurant (owned by a German couple, if Im not mistaken) is going in right across the street aswell.

If you dont end up staying at Los Mangos, at least stop by for a good meal and a good time. Just take note that the restaurant/bar closes early on Wednesday nights. The other nights its open till around 9-10, after which things quiet down.

This is one of the best accommodations here for the simple reason that it is the nicest beach front hotel on the island. In addition, it is stylish, perfectly clean, inexpensive and it has its own super fun bar and wonderful restaurant. The rooms are comfortable and romantic. The owner Tracy will make sure you have a lovely stay.

The whole setting of this small hotel is perfect for a Caribbean vacation.
