Maracaibo Aparthotel
Ranked #21 of 67 Hotels in Puerto Rico
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

We returned home last night after a wonderful 11 night stay in the Maracaibo apartments from the 18th to 29th June.

We had booked our airport transfers through ww.trasladoscanarias.es as I had read another review on Trip adviser who recommended them and really we couldn't fault them. We paid €75 For the private return transfer and they were very efficient, waiting for us on arrival and there in time to collect us yesterday for our flight home.

Now for the Maracaibo! Of course as always you will read mixed reviews on most accommodations so of course in the back of your mind you always have a little worry but we just couldn't fault them. We were a family of 4 adults and our son who is 3 and a half. We arrived at the apartments around 12.30pm and were in our apartment by 1pm! We booked a 2 bedroom apartment, and it was beautiful. One bedroom had a king size bed in it, and not 2 beds put together as I checked the matress! The second bedroom had 2 single beds. The only issue we had was that the second bedroom had very very little storage space, so we had to share the big wardrobe in the double room but it all worked out fine in the end!
Our balcony had amazing sea views of Amadoras beach and also our swimming pool. There were always sunbeds available and the pool was lovely, our son never wanted to get out! The pool bar did lovely food, especially the margarita pizzas ! The staff were amazingly friendly, everyone in Puerto Rico was! Our favourite restaurants were Aguaviva down on Amadoras beach, we ate there about 4 nights, their steaks are to die for and my husband loved loved the sizzling prawns in garlic! Also try Las Vegas restaurant in the commercial centre.

We would definately go back to stay in Maracaibo, fingers crossed maybe next year!!

Stayed: June 2014

The hotel was lovely. But what made the holiday was the surroundings. The area that the hotel is situated has many bars and restaurants. There is a pub in the commercial centre downtown called Outlaws. The owners were lovely and there was a very homely environment. If you are in the area it is definetly a place to check out.

myself and my partner stayed here for 4 nights on the 28th of April,self catering.We stayed on a lower floor which had good views over the bay and had easy access to the lovely bar and pool area.The pool is not very deep.The bar staff were very friendly and helpful especially the one who looks like Robert Downey Jr.the room Our room was just a standard one but was clean and tidy with fridge,kettle 2 ring hob.there was washing up liquid,scourer and dish cloth which I think was a nice touch.There was no bath and the shower area is rather small.Well placed to walk to shops and bars to the left and the beach to the right if you have exited from the pool area,the traffic can be speeding on this road.Small TV on wall but couldn't get any English channels on it i;e BBCnews but I suppose we are abroad. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I think maybe a higher room would have better views has there are quite a few palm trees in the hote...

We spend our first vacation of the year with my family and we fully enjoyed it. The hotel is located in a very nice site of Puerto Rico with fabulous views to the sea side and the local beach. During our stay we took one day to watch the dolphins and a second one to take the ferry to Mogan.

The swimmingpool area was inmaculate with beatiful sun beds, it looks all very relaxing with calm ambience, just for us. We compare it with other accommodations in the village but this one looks far better, with no discussion at all. Our room was an Standard One Bedroom Apartment in the second floor with full sea view. Generous size of the apartment, beds are premium quality and good confortable furniture, some thing could be improved but it in a good level.

We had plenty of sun so it was a good start of our Holiday and staff are grate and very friendly, that really make the Holiday atractive.

This accommodation is situated just a short walk to the beach. The staff are most helpful and friendly, maid service 6 days out of 7, the pool, bar etc were well kept.

Just a 20-30 mins walk to Amadores beach is well worth it and a really nice walk too.

Prices from the airport to Puerto Rico by taxi are about 59 euros each way. We used www.trasladoscanarias.es, which cost us 37 euros each way.

The restaurants on the beach are very reasonable for breakfast and evening meal and are superb.

Be aware of the chaps trying very hard to get you to the resort of ANFI (the next resort) they will pay for your taxi, but it is Timeshare.

We stayed at the Maracaibo a few years a go and after looking for something new in Puerto Rico, we decided to return to the same place. This was a really nice stay and how glad that the prices have not changed so still is not expensive place. Some hotels in Puerto Rico have become really expensive and make to us difficult to return. The position is really great and much more close to the beach as it looks from the pictures in internet. The rooms are clean and modern, we had a poolsea view one. The only downfall with our apartment was that we finded the bathroom quite small and it needs more light. About the beds are really the best, much better that others hotels and apartments we know in the area, we can asure that the Maracaibo beds are the most comfortable ones in Puerto Rico.
The pools is one of the most cozy we have finded, clean and full of relaxing sun beds with a great view to the beach and the ocean. The staff makes this hotel a good option to stay, we feel very welcome. We noticed that is a lady in her beauty corner, very busy, always smiling to everyone. We will come back, next year we will go to Thailand, is time to change from the Canary Islands.

Room Tip: Pool and sea view rooms, ask for the king size bed, not all rooms got them
