Close to airportPosted Sep 28, 2013
Be careful of traffic - over 60 mins at peak times. Off peak 25 mins. Loved the hammock in the lounge of the suite

The people there could not have been nicer and the breakfast was fantastic. The only problem was that it was a distance from the airport & was advertised as an airport hotel.

the hotel is mostly prepared for European tourist. In todays world internet is a must and they only have it in the lobby. The surroudings are very bad inventhough the hotel compound is safe

Pros: The helpful staff
Cons: The location
Location: Too far from Caracas
An oasis surrounded by less than a pristine neighborhood. Close to the crowded pebble beach, not so far from the town center of Caribe, and about an hour bus ride to Caracas. Run by a warm and hospitable family, this is a place for relaxing by the pool or feeding your family in the suite kitchen.

Relaxing and pleasant!Posted Dec 14, 2012
Peaceful, quiet, secluded area. The area is in development (lots of construction), but they do not start too early, and the rooms are quiet. Great food (try the arepas!) and great staff! Close to the beaches and cheap public transportation, but very difficult to get to from the airport because all of the taxi drivers want to go to Caracas (the other direction) and there are evening traffic jams that extend the length of the taxi ride to about 45 minutes (compared to 20 minutes in good traffic). IMPORTANT: Everything will be extremely expensive in Venezuela if you take money from automatic tellers or banks, accepting the official exchange rate. The official rate was 4.3 bolívares per dollar (Dec 2012), but the black market dollar was going for about 15 or 16. Take lots of dollars and exchange your money with individuals in the airport who need dollars. Do not take less than about 4 times the official rate. I got 15 from the first guy who approached me. For example, instead of paying almost $40 (official rate) for a nice spaghetti dinner and excellent strawberry smoothie in a nice ocean-front restaurant, I paid the equivalent of about $10. I spent an evening and a day in the beach cities and spent about $80, which included transportation (taxis and buses) and food. I was generous with tips.

NICE BUILDING, SHAME ABOUT THE NEIGHBOURHOODPosted Oct 24, 2012 on Hotels.com
We stayed in this hotel for one night as a stopover between a holiday in Curacao and returning home to London. It was advertised as 'close to the airport' and we chose it for this and the aiprort shuttle service (which comes at a cost). It is 19 kms from the airport and whilst the arrival journey was ok, getting back to the airport the following afternoon was a nightmare due to traffic. The hotel is quite an nice building but surrounded by a rundown, derelict area (like many parts or Caracas). The room was comfortable, with quite good facilities, but the quality was quite poor (by European standards). Main complaints were that, at one point, the water supply to the shower and basin disappeared (hot and cold), there were no hangers in the wardrobe and one of the bedside lights didn't work. Coffee making facilities were provided but with no milk or cream. However, although we arrived very late (around 9.30 PM), we received a nice welcome and complimentary drinks from the staff and were allowed to check out at 2 PM, rather than the stated time of 11.30 AM, which was nice. We also received a free breakfast, although I think the hotel just forgot to charge us for it.

Pick-up IssuesPosted Oct 9, 2012
Cons: location environs
Location: looked to be in a very poor and dangerous area
Airport pick-up arranged but name given to pickup driver bore little reference to my first and surname; so a few calls and long wait to connect with driver.
Perhps on a different locationPosted Jun 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
If you are planning to stay in the hotel all your stay, is a good place. Big rooms (they even have an hamaca inside), nice pool but, there is no place to get anything to eat and if you want breakfast, lunch or dinner you need to tell them at least one hour before so they can prepare it for you. No vendor machines where to get a soft drink or a bag of chips and the worst part, there is no store around the hotel. Walking distance from the beach but the road is, smelly and trashy. If you do not have a car, you must depend on taxis. At night is noise, people drink and party on the street. If you think about taking a walk during the day, you will feel the sense of dangerous because on one street you will see nice condominiums but on the other side, a very poor scenario.
