Yes, the posada is nice, cozy, clean rooms and service and food is good. Rooms and especially bathroom to tight for any adult. There are more same standar and more comfortable posadas in Gran Roque for the price of Caracol. Just to mention one Malibu. The posada is not ocean front which really doesn't really matters for me but the food is out of chart rooms and bathroom spacious incredible decor and lighting, and just same price.

Room Tip: rooms are all ok.

Los Roques is a place that you have to go at least once in your lifetime. This Posada sits 50 meters from the shore. You eat breakfast with the best view in the world, barefooted in the sand.

The staff is really friendly and will cater to your request, if possible. Everything in Los Roques has to be brought by plane or boat, except for the fish, so you have to understand that there are certain limitations.

The room that I got was big enough for 2. It had a good AC and a small bathroom. It even has an ipod speaker, so you can charge your iphone/ipod and listen to your favorite tune in your room.

If you are lucky enough, you can meet the owner, he is very helpful and polite.

Honeymoon, vacations, just a get away trip, this is a perfect place to stay.

The Posada was perfect, it had cozy clean rooms with air conditioning. The staff were accomodating and very friendly, they made you feel that you were more than a guest. The chef "Charlie" is a gifted young man, very creative. Last, but not least, the manager Karolina is a wonderful, patient woman......she is amazing! We will return to Posada Caracol next year.... we have to we adopted a turtle, at the reserve, and we have set him/her free.

We had a lovely time. The room was delightful but small. The food was satisfactory, not great.
The friendliness of the staff was excellent. The location of this posada was excellent because it was so close to the water. I would definitely stay there again.

We went to stay at Posada Caracol for our Honeymoon for 4 nights. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the room was very nice and clean and the best bit was the food! Supper every night was super tasty, we ended up trying at least a dozen of different fish and seafood on them.
It can be a little bit noisy during the day due to being close to the airport but for us that was not a problem since we spent the days at the beach.

We stayed one week in this wonderful posada. The location is the best of the island, the staff is just great and the food is one of the best we ever had ( in fact, the cook has been working in the best restaurants of the world, even with some michellin stars). A true surprise, since you wouldn't expect such a good kitchen in such a small place as Los Roques. Don't get cold feet because of the previous bad reviews . They have change almost all the staff in the last month, so I would say that right now is the best poasda in Los Roques. Concidering the prices in the island, I would even dare to say that is a good value. You won't regret!!

This hotel chain has two posadas in the island. Two years ago, I've been there, in Villa Caracol with my wife and loved it! Well managed, friendly staff, so on, so on.
When we decided to come back to Los Roques we decided to stay in the same hotel, of course. What we didn't know was that the previous owner sold his management to his brother and father-in-law! The new owners don't know nothing about hospitality, treat guests like walking wallets, hide information of what is included in the package and send staff members to confront guests with bad news.
Specificaly speaking, (1) the hotel was robbed and 2 guests lost all their electronic equipment. Even being a 4-room posada, nobody ever talked to us and tranquilized us that they were addressing this issue. (2) they don't have word. If they say you'll be taken to an island the next day, you're probably not. (3) Their boat had a problem and we had to hire other boat and pay extra money even the boat transportation being included in the deal. (4) We were hungry one afternoon and couldn't eat a sandwich in the hotel, because the bread was counted for guests for breakfast!! This is a USD 400/day/couple hotel.
Besides this awful hotel experience, the location is awsome. But there are a lot of posadas located in great beach spots with better management.
