This hotel was good, now is a madness, from the security guard until reception, people does not know anything about the hotel! Around this hotel you can find a lot of hotels, if you want to have a good trip, run away from this hotel! Very bad experience!

Stayed here with my other half, was a very good price. Ok it's not a plush hotel but it's clean and the food is average-good. Plenty of it and the beer is cold and in bottles which for me was a good thing. Think this Hotel would be a good choice if you came with kids. Private beach is very... More

It was some time ago, many things could change since that time. But when we were there, it was absolutely perfect. A wonderful beach, friendly staff, good food and all the related al inclusive services. We enjoyed night bars where waiters did not take care about the amount of rum in your drink :-).

This is lucky to be called a 3 1/2 star. We spent 2 weeks at this resort. The food was terrible. All 4 family members became sick. They do not believe in purified water and most of their salads etc are washed in the same un-purified water. I would never every return here.

“TIPS I am a frequent traveller to Venezuela, I know of the crime rates there and people can steal from you when you think they are there to help. So keep your guard up and take any valuables with you e.g we took our camera with us in a fannypack or some call it bumpack I speak fluent Spanish so I was able to communicate with the staff well. Hardly anyone speaks english over in venezuela, during our stay we didn't meet anybody who spoke english... We tried not to speak too much english out of the hotel, and didn't mention where we from just that we here on holiday. I'm not saying be a secret spy but don't draw attention to yourself try not to stick out- if you are flashing cash or valuables you will become a target!!! every time we left the room we left other valuables locked and out of sight in the suitcases, and left that out of sight too.”
