I stayed here at the end of December 2013. I am a solo female traveller (26 years old) and I felt very safe. My trip was organised by the amazing Ben at Osprey Expeditions- who I can't recommend enough! The staff were really friendly and spoke very good English. The posada was very cute, and right next to the "offices"... More

The stuff was perfectly nice and the cook was creating masterpieces! There are millions of mosquitos at night but you're protected with network. General impression is very good! I would stay there again next time!

Shower not working, bathroom not working, hiddens fees (60 dollars) from the owner when checking out, bad excuses when making something wrong for example late lunchbox so we missed the boat to remote island. Very hot rooms. The personel was nice but the posada was badly run by the owner. Alot of mosquitos around the food to all the animals... More

We stayed for one night at Posada Botuto in Oct ’13 as part of a 5-day tour arranged through Osprey Expeditions. The staff were so friendly and helpful that they completely made our stay so much easier and enjoyable. We had previously been told that we could pay for a boat/snorkelling trip on Los Roques using US$ so we only... More

Nice location opposite the beach, rather than in the other streets with one posada beside the next (although you can't really swim nor hang out at any of the 'beaches on Gran Roque, they seem to be only for the fishing and transport boats). They managed to serve a different breakfast every day - scrambled eggs, French toast, pancakes, omelette...... More

We stayed there 3 nights during the summer of 2013. The rooms were cozy and the service was a good one. The two girls managing the posada are kind and they did their best with our special food requests. They coordinate with people taking your luggages to the airport and bringing the fridge for your day trip to the beaches.... More

We stayed in this small and comfortable posada with another couple and were very satisfied with the service and the delicious food. Also this easy feeling of people taking care of us without worrying about anything. Great! Los Roques is a paradise, but a very wild paradise, do not expect first world anything, which we actually find it as a... More

Overall I would remind anyone travelling to Los Roques that this is an island group a long way from the mainland. Manage your own expectations before coming here and you will have a far better experience. Some supplies, which come by boat, are only delivered every week or so. Menu choices.are limited and at times they run out of certain... More

Such a great little place. We felt so welcome at the Posada! The food cooked by the chef was really good, and we were also allowed to use the kitchen. The staff are all really friendly, welcoming and so helpful. Loved it!

Stayed four nights and really enjoyed it. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Not only did they help organise our boat trips and show us around, they also helped us with our bus tickets back in Caracas. Food was tasty and location good.
