Not much to chose from, ended up here. Place had nice beds, AC worked well and the water was hot although there was no water for the first five hours we were there as the pipes were being worked on. The place is obviously under construction $200 a night is a bit steep for an unfinished "resort". Ants were everywhere in the room especially at night.
Very disappointed by the service. We had no bath towels, shampoo or soap. There were only table lamps in the room and after the light bulb blew out we went to complain. They tried to offer us an "upgraded" room not really any difference just closer to the pool. Although we complained we never received bath towels, soaps, or a working light bulb! The pool was clean but the hot tub was really cold maybe they shouldn't call it a hot tub.
Also it was implied that we could use our credit card for the stay, the machine was sitting on the desk when we checked in, when we went to pay we were told they didn't accept credit cards and the machine had been moved back out of sight.
We really felt as if we had been taken advantage of. Charged a high season rate for low quality service. The restaurant had little to no choices and seemed extremely high priced, the wine tasted like it had sat in the sun and spoiled even after a fresh bottle was opened.
Venao is a great beach for surfing and enjoying the day but I wouldn't recommend staying the night.
