“Nice place but very over-priced”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

As a scuba diver I loved the islands - clear water and white sandy beaches. The posada itself is nice enough and the people were very friendly, but it is way too expensive and the food was nothing special, in spite of previous comments. As I discovered after I arrived on Gran Roque, there are much much cheaper options available near the little Bolivar Plaza. Over-rated and not for independent travellers or people on a tight budget.

Me and my husband stood at Posada Macondo for 1 week, and I can say it was a wonderful week. Alessandro is so kind and helpful! He was always asking if everything was ok, worried about every detail. Sonia is the best chef I've ever met! I don't think I will ever have best meals in my life! All the staff was very nice, the posada is very pleasant, clean and nice rooms...we will definetly come back and stay there again!

Room Tip: Just ask for a room with air conditioning (I don't now if all rooms have it)

My stay at this place along with my wife and her mom was great. The island is lovely. The rooms in this hotel are clean and pleasant with comfortable beds. There is air conditioning in the rooms. The food provided during all the three meals was great. Delicious and memorable fooding. The staff were quite helpful and friendly. They always had the time to answer all our queries regarding the place. We enjoyed our stay here. My mother in law made some friends with the guests staying at this place. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Posada Macondo is a wonderful place on a wonderful island. We spent only two days (one night), but everything was perfect. Sonia, Alessandro and the staff are very kind, friendly and always ready to help you and answer your questions. The food was excellent (breackfast, box-lunch and dinner), the room cute and clean (and with air conditioning) and the posada in general very nice. We definitely wanna go back to Los Roques and to posada Macondo.

I stayed at Macondo for 4 nights. Food is really good, the owners are very very nice, hotel is clean, rooms have A/C and the perfect size.
You get a chance to meet the other guests as you have dinner and breakfast with them at the same table and at the same time. Additionally, you the day trips that they plan usually take guests to the same island.
Overall it was a great stay. I totally recommend it!
