I stayed here as part of the 3 day tour to Angel Falls and I am extremely glad my tour agent booked this hotel for me. It is ideally situated next to the lake, and only a few minutes' walk from the airport. The hotel room (I stayed in room 13) was well equipped with comfortable beds (with mosquito nets),... More

This lodge is beautiful with a warm welcome, local animals and great service. The food was really nice and it was great to have a hot shower when we arrived. Even when we locked ourselves... More

The view of the Canaima Lake and the waterfalls was amazing. Nicolas, our driver & guide was fantastic and very helpful. Joshua, our waiter was gracious and wanted to make sure he spoke English...

He kept our group in stitches, our 11 year old grand-daughter did... More

I am rating this hotel excellent because of its location. From the grounds of the lodge, you see several tall waterfalls across a lake. A unique view. Besides the view, you get a very clean air conditioned room, passable food, and an excellent staff. When I look at the wild conditions around the hotel, I am amazed at how they... More
