I went with my family to this hotel from Jun 29 thru Jul 03 2009. The service was excellent, people was very helpful. The food was good too; they had buffet everyday where you can find a variety of things with good flavors. They didn’t have any wine for drinks during this period though. This was the good part, now the bad part: the rooms are in a very bad condition. During our 4 nights staying in this hotel, we stayed in three different rooms. There was always a problem with every single one. The first one had dripping water from the A/C, the second one had a very strong smell, may be cigarette, I don’t know and looks pretty old, and it was nasty thinking in having a shower there. The third one and last one, when you flush the toilet it didn’t work, they fixed it though, but the bathroom looks pretty bad, we were tired to move our stuff so we decided to stay in this one for the rest of the time.
The hotel doesn’t have places to walk around; it is pretty small, basically you go to your room, restaurant and swimming pool, that is all!!! The beach is a joke, pretty small, there are not cabanas or umbrellas, you need to be as close as you can from the palm tree, and there are two. We didn’t expend a weekend there but I bet it is pretty noisy during the night because it is surrounded by night clubs.
The hotel is five minutes away from Sambil mall, Rattan mall in Pampatar. You pay like 20 Bfs to go there. Conejeros market, where you can find cheap stuff, is about 30 minutes away, they charge you like 30 Bfs one way.
I will recommend this hotel to my enemies... just if i had one....
I went to Margarita before, I stayed in Portofino Hotel, it was as bad as this one, so I think this is pretty normal in this island.
