I was staying at another hotel but I was recommended this place by a friend to have dinner. When I told the owner I was vegan, she adapted the menu especially based on my diet, which I truly appreciated as it is difficult being vegan in South America. The service was excellent too, waiters super nice and friendly. Location is... More

Stayed as a family of 4 as end part of tour of Venenzuela. One of the few posadas still owned by a local rather than Italians. The owner Nelly is famous for her cooking and it certainly was. A set menu each evening which catered for all the family including fussy eaters! The breakfast was vast - pancakes, porridge, toast,... More

We spent 4 nights at this posada and we were absolutely happy about everything. The posada has only 2 rooms, both of them spacious, cosy and comfortable, but of course they are almost always busy. The food was great and they made all they could to please us as vegans - we had something different every evening, and a lot... More

We had a lovely time here - the place is simple but lovely. There is no menu in the restaurant and you won't get what the table next door does because they only have what was caught that morning. I will always remember the fish from there. The staff are friendly and kind, the place is simple but has great... More

Stayed at this posada and got a room right next to the bar. There was a drinking party going on every night until the early hours and the owner had stored their beer right outside our room. Impossible to get any sleep. In addition there was no mosquito net or air conditioning protection in the room and we got bitten... More
