Hey guys. I've travelled all around the world, I literally suffer from wanderlust. Even in the poorest communities of Africa I've been treated better than in this place. On my last day when I left to the beach and left my bags closed at my room, they came in and stole EVERYTHING that was inside of them. They only left... More

The best posadas at Los Roques are quite the same: same rustic arquitecture, same package (boat to the islands+cavas with lunch and drinks+dinner), same prices, etc. So the small details matters to said that this one of the best posadas there. Located only 50m to the shore where all the boats boards to the islands, the attention is very good... More

Yes, the posada is nice, cozy, clean rooms and service and food is good. Rooms and especially bathroom to tight for any adult. There are more same standar and more comfortable posadas in Gran Roque for the price of Caracol. Just to mention one Malibu. The posada is not ocean front which really doesn't really matters for me but the... More

Los Roques is a place that you have to go at least once in your lifetime. This Posada sits 50 meters from the shore. You eat breakfast with the best view in the world, barefooted in the sand. The staff is really friendly and will cater to your request, if possible. Everything in Los Roques has to be brought by... More

The Posada was perfect, it had cozy clean rooms with air conditioning. The staff were accomodating and very friendly, they made you feel that you were more than a guest. The chef "Charlie" is a gifted young man, very creative. Last, but not least, the manager Karolina is a wonderful, patient woman......she is amazing! We will return to Posada Caracol... More

We had a lovely time. The room was delightful but small. The food was satisfactory, not great. The friendliness of the staff was excellent. The location of this posada was excellent because it was so close to the water. I would definitely stay there again.

We went to stay at Posada Caracol for our Honeymoon for 4 nights. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the room was very nice and clean and the best bit was the food! Supper every night was super tasty, we ended up trying at least a dozen of different fish and seafood on them. It can be a little... More

We stayed one week in this wonderful posada. The location is the best of the island, the staff is just great and the food is one of the best we ever had ( in fact, the cook has been working in the best restaurants of the world, even with some michellin stars). A true surprise, since you wouldn't expect such... More

This hotel chain has two posadas in the island. Two years ago, I've been there, in Villa Caracol with my wife and loved it! Well managed, friendly staff, so on, so on. When we decided to come back to Los Roques we decided to stay in the same hotel, of course. What we didn't know was that the previous owner... More

The only interresting point for this hotel is the location , right on the beach, it is unique in los roques. This being said , there is a limited confort , it is not clean , food is poor , service , what is it? Price is extremely high , there is no value for the money. It seems certainly... More
