We had a lovely 5 night stay here in April. Venao is not a town, just a collection of hotels along the beach and this is clearly the most upscale.

Above all else... More

This place is impossible to find. Don't go in the dark, you won't find it. I left a black hooded sweatshirt In the closet, emailed The hotel twice and they ignored me, no response. Disappointed, now someone has a nice NorthFace hoody. Nice pool and beach.

The stay was also great. Awesome waves, great food, nice new rooms and lots of hot water! I will come back... More
