Los Roques is a paradise for itself. However, La Cigala makes you feel like you really belong to the place. And, more important, let you enjoy every minute there without hassles. Alejandro, the manager, is an awesome guy, as the other people on the staff, from the chef to the boat capitain.
Getting the complete package (wich includes non-alcooholic drinks, 3 meals and boat ride to close islands) is a must, for the food is excelent, as well as the ambiance during breakfest and dinner (due to the restrict schedule, all people gather to the feast, as a big nice familly). If you're planning to go to Los Roques, I definitely recommed La Cigala as the place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms as eaqually good. Even the ones closer to the central patio. Mind this is a small "po...

We stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights, and from the very beginning you can tell that La Cigala is definitely the best posada in Los Roques.

The location could not be better, is about 4 minutes walking from the airport (you won’t be bothered by plane noises, there is not traffic at night or early in the morning), 3 minutes from the dock, and 1 minute from the Aereotuy office. This is very convenient, for instance you can wait for your plane inside the posada until it lands.

The facilities are very clean and comfortable; remember that Los Roques it’s a very small beach town, so forget about big fancy hotels, luxuries and home like amenities. All the rooms have air conditioner, private bathroom, Wi-Fi and no TV (you won’t need it). The posada have some common areas to rest and hang out, it has a lovely deck with a comfortable hammock and a couple of chairs and cushions.

The food was just awesome. They serve the basic stuff at breakfast (arepas, pancakes, cereal, etc.). At lunch time, they give you a lunch box with enough ice, water and soft drinks for a couple, the lunch could be a tuna or ham and cheese wrap, pasta or tortilla. The dinner is the main event, you will enjoy 4 plates, in the two nights we stayed there we had barracuda ceviche/zucchini carpaccio, pasta/pumpkin soup, fish (peto/barracuda) and chocolate nougat/mini brownie balls. With the all-inclusive package, you will have coffee, soft drinks (try the papelón con limón), tea, water, cookies and cakes all day long.

But what really makes the difference is the staff. What a nice, kind and service oriented people. They receive you from the moment you step the island and take care of everything you need. The guy on charge (Alejandro) helped me with a special request and the rest of the team showed themselves very attentive all the time. I wish the rest of hotels in Venezuela had a staff at least 10% as attentive as these guys. They also know very well all the keys and beaches, so they can recommend the perfect one for your needs.

I'm feel very happy to choose this place!!! The staff was amazing, very service oriented, the food was awesome, very very yummy!!! the mojitos and caipirinha are amazing, just try it!!!! All the cayos are beautifull, but if you want to meet more places as possible, i recommend you take cayo de agua and other cayos tours, it is really amazing!! The rooms are very basic but super cute.... my husband and i really enjoy this trip!!

A very interesting posada in Los Roques. Los Roques as a destination was the most pleasant surprised and all the staff of La Cigala contributed to not ruin that experience. We had a very good stay there, however only for a Single night.
We were received in the airport, offered a breakfast on arrival, went to a cayo for the day with a lunchbox and drinks provided by the posada and a great dinner at the end of the day. Day 2 we got a breakfast (similar to the first day), driven to another cayo (again, with lunch provided). At the agreed time (2 hours before plane departure), we were picked up, had a shower at the posada and the help of the staff for checkin.

Please mind that this is a posada in an island with limited water and electricity. With that in mind, you will know why the water pressure is limited. Some of the features may seem basic given the price, but they were able to get all the essentials right. Toiletries were available, the size of the room was appropriate, hot water and AC were available, more that enough drinks and food were available in the beach, the Papaya (boat used for going to the cayos) seemed safe and timely. Joel and Alejandro were able to accommodate the requests from some of my friends (no mayo, no tomato, ...)
We had no problems with insects (insect repellent was available in the room), we were offered breakfast when we arrived. Booking the posada was no more cumbersome than booking any other place in Venezuela.
Overall, recommended.

Staff service oriented, food better than average, cozy and clean.
The best Caipirinha. Tell them to get you a private boat with captain Zenith, He will take you to Cayo de Agua and other excellent little keys.
Don't think twice about staying here.
