It's one of the cheapest hotels in the Island, but the service, the food and the room service and the cleanliness are very poor. They don't have enough nor prepared personnel. Our room had cockroaches and the bathroom wasn't clean at all. the restaurant has a lot of bees and flies and they offer the same food for breakfast, lunch... More

Whilst staying here I noticed after 2 nights that $40US dollars had gone missing and could not pick exactly where it had been taken, then after another $20US went missing it is obviously from the cleaning staff. Also there was an unknown amount of bolivares taken, they obviously just take a little so it is not noticed. I'm not even... More

Rooms are o.k., not top hygenic which is a no go. The best thing is the Animation Team, but after 8days salsa music all day on the background, its a bit overkill. The food is medium as the choice was almost the same every day, especially the breakfast. I think its quit an nice place when you explore the island,... More

The country is beutiful with nice nature, huge beaches, nice sand and above 90% sunny weather... but: The pool was green because of bad sanitation. The restaurant could not hold the many people there, every day something was missing, like plates, knives, forks, water and so on, the food was bad and they served the same food almost every day....

This 2 * hotel offers good value for money for travellers on a budget or for travellers who does not need all the facilities of a larger hotel. The top floor rooms offer a small terrace and a sea view. Although the standard is outdated, it is still bearable for the price of 30 USD pr. Night. The price includes... More

I holidayed for two weeks at the Hotel Golden Paradise for $1536.00 Canadian including health and cancellation insurance and single room supplement. The hotel was excellent. Unlike some of the others in this area, the Golden Paradise this is located directly on the beach. There are three bars, pool bar, dining room bar and a beach bar offering a fine... More

Golden Paradise Hotel We recently spent a week at this hotel, and, although Margarita Island, itself, was geographically, quite beautiful, ranging from lush mountains, to mangrove wetlands, to desert areas (i strongly recommend the 1 day Jeep island tour), the hotel left much to be desired. GO Travel Direct (Canada) rated the hotel with 3 stars, my opinion is, barely... More
