“Great Posada”
Reviewed 8 October 2009

My wife and I stayed at Natura Viva at the end of a fortnight's tour of Venezuela in October 2007. I note that one more recent reviewer has commented that there has since been a change of manager and the place is much improved. However, for us, even in 2007, it was a great place to relax.

We had a room at the end of the building which fronted right onto the beach. I think this may have been the best room at the Posada, but if you are looking at staying here, I'd recommend you ask for our room. The room itself was relatively basic by the standards of European hotels, but, I suspect, better than most posadas on Los Roques. It was really quite charming, though, with everything we needed. Note that there was no hot water in our ensuite though, but I think this was fairly standard. In any event, the weather is so warm that you probably won't want a hot shower.

The service at Natura Viva was very good. Every morning, the posada staff will take you out in its motor boat to one of the many nearby islands where you can relax on the beach. You'll be left with a cooler box full of food (included in the price), deck chairs and a parasol. All you need to do is say when you want to be picked up later. The food at the roof-top restaurant was pretty good too.

The only problem that we encountered was really down to us rather than the staff at Natura Viva. My Spanish is extremely basic and whilst it was just about enough to get us by, beaing able to speak Spanish is a major advantage here. None of the staff spoke much (or any) English, so don't expect the staff to speak your language rather than theirs. For us, this simply made Los Roques more attractive since there were clearly not enough English tourists to make knowing how to speak English an advantage.

We would definitely recommend people visit Los Roques and stay at Natura Viva, and we would do so again ourselves if we had the chance. Both the islands and the posada are beautiful and are the ideal place for a bit of rest and relaxation.

Reviewed 10 March 2009

After having spent 6 days there in 2007, we came back for 9 days in March 2009. We already liked it in 2007 but we loved it this time; much improvement following change of manager and cook. What we particularly liked: the situation (quiet and in front of the ocean), the terrasse, the ambiance, the inner garden, the food (trully excellent now), the flexibility of the whole staff, the cocktails, etc.
I would recomment this posada without hesitation.
