having been in venezuela for more than six weeks i came back to the plazamar hotel (family run) about five times.
every time the transfer driver (elias) was waiting for me and brought me back to the hotel even if it was at an ungodly hour. same goes for going to the airport.
everybody working here has been extremely helpful and welcoming.
the area of macuto is also safe and it is nice to walk on the beach, have a drink in one of the little venues, do people watching etc.
the bakery closeby has delicious bread, cakes and delicatessen.
buses to the next town full of life (miniature caracas withouth its dangers) is nice to visit and easy to get to by local bus.
to go to caracas for the day is also no problem from macuto. the local bus takes you to the metro station gato negro and from there you can reach the center easily.
all in all, being a female senior citizen, i can only recommend this hotel which also has hot water, is clean, has a/c, a terrace, and as mentioned before very friendly staff.
of course it is mandatory to make a reservation and confirm it !!!
