Posada Acuarela
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Posada acuarela is by far one of the best places we had stayed in. The service, the room, the staff and the location are superb. The breakfasts and a la carte dinners were amazing. Our only problem during our stay was choosing which beach to go!

Stayed: May 2014

The room was clean and comfortable, the air conditioning efficient and an effective shower so all the basics in place. The food was excellent and the staff all friendly and helpful, I have no reservations in recommending this Posada, and look forward to returning with my family. I was there to fish (with sightcast) and this was also excellent great guides and an extraordinary number of bonefish (but do not overlook the tarpon and large bonefish on the Gran Roques beach!).

I was lucky enough to visit Los Roques in January, and I cannot wait to return. The keys here have to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. One of the many highlights of this stay was the Posada Acuarela, which I highly recommend. The food is absolutely superb. One day, when we decided to stay and explore the town, the staff shared their lunch with us. The rooms and Posada are beautiful. Every person that works there is extremely friendly and helpful.

Visit one of the most beautiful places on earth. Stay in the best Posada on the island while you are there!!!

Room Tip: There really are no bad rooms. The only tip is to remember that this is not an American hotel. Don...

One block from the beach. Excellent staff and service. Clean air conditioned rooms and really good food. Only downside was spotty Internet on the Island, but this is a typical remote Island problem. Will definately go back :-)

We traveled to the Los Roques Archipelago in Venezuela, February 2013 for our anniversary and stayed at Posada Acuarela on Gran Roques, after having read a great review about it on the New York Times. There are tons of Posada's on Gran Roques that we could have stayed at, some cheaper, some more expensive, some bigger, some smaller....but this Posada was perfect in every way!
The owner, Angelo (ciao Angelo!) is not only responsible for the beautifully decorated and appointed Posada but being a chef he is also responsible for the spectacular food we were treated to everyday! I never thought I would be raving about food on a vacation dedicated to sun, sea and romance, but the delicious food really does add that extra to Posada Acuarela that the others no-doubt do not have. I am Italian and the food was better than any Italian food I have ever had outside Italy!
Angelo also expertly organized our "expeditions" for every day. We had an amazing time and didn't lift a finger the whole time. We went to some of the other islands, nearby and farther away and went diving and snorkeling with the help of Angelo and his staff. All the expeditions were great fun - especially sitting on a perfect beach relaxing with a delicious boxed lunch and drinks.
While we were there we made friends with a group of US bone-fish fishermen who seemed to also be having a great time saying that Los Roques is one of the top places in the world for sport fishing.
The staff at Posada Acuarela was professional, courteous and very friendly.
We would not hesitate to unconditionally recommend Posada Acuarela to all travelers. Don't bother with the rest of the Posadas, stay at the best one on Gran Roques - Posada Acuarela!!

Since 1997 we have been 7 times to Los Roques, 3 of which we stayed at Acuarela. It's definitely our favourite place - breakfast is delicious, dinner is fantastic (I don't think in London there are many Italian restaurants serving as delicious food as Acuarela in Los Roques...), the service is great and very friendly and the rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It's great value for money.

Moreover, right next to Acuarela there is now a great playground for the kids.

We recommend this posada highly both for couples who wish to spend some romantic days on the Island or to families with kids.

Hotel is very nice and the rooms are beautiful. Mind: the bathroom is not similar to a 5* in most contries, but this is Venezuela and compared to the other hotels we stayed in still very nice.

Food was great. Each evening they served a four course meal (mainly fish) of very very good quality. The food itself makes this a bargain. Wine you had to pay yourself, but all resonably priced at 200-350 Bs. For breakfast they cook to order: eggs, arrepa and pan cakes.
For lunch they provided a nice sandwich, salad and some drinks in a cooler.

If you take the time to talk to Mino who have been running the place for the last 5 years, he is very helpful (and speaks very good english) and gave us lots of good advice on which islands to go and where to snorkel.

If you are only there for a couple of nights, we highly recomment you to rent a private boat for a day(2000 Bs. or $250) and you can do 3-4 amazing snorkel spots plus a couple of desolated islands. Most people tend to stay on the islands close to Gran Roques.


On the negative side:
Not always a lot of hot water. This is due to the fact the use the sun to heat the water.
Internet was not working. (actually an advantage we thought) and in a worst case there is an internet shop around the corner.
If you do not like fish not sure what the options would be.
