“Experience Margarita”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

On the Juan Griego beachfront lies Hotel Patrick. Owned by family man, Michael Harkness, it offers all a traveler can want. The place is littered with dogs and toddlers that provide a feeling that it's never empty. But nothing to keep you from sleeping late. Michael was very helpful with the efficient organisation of trips and with the money crisis we soon found ourselves in - bring US dollars! The rooms aren't pristine clean, but are decent for the price you will pay for them. Only a stones throw away from the quiet promenade and a taxi ride to the busier parts of the island, Hotel Patrick will offer you peace in paradise.

A small, cosy hotel with a great atmosphere. You feel at home as soon as you arrive at the Hotel. The rooms are comfortable with and the main area has a bar, TV, pool table and hammocks so it's great to relax there. The staff are friendly and helpful and it's situated about 20 meters away from the bay where you get lovely views and some of the best sunsets on Margarita! Great value for money.

This is the only place to stay in Margarita, they owners are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble.
Michael's music quiz is the best.!!!
We experienced the Eco Village trip - a must if you have the time. It is a wonderful insight into the Rain forest and the people who live there. We took the 2 night trip, go for longer if you have the time. All food is provided, and they cater very well for vegetarians.
Michael and Roisin can organise this and various other trips for you.

I spend 3 nights at Hotel Patrick and all I can see is that I felt very well there. Michael - the owner - himself is an awesome person (he saved my New Years´ Eve, by the way, by telling me the RIGHT place to go) and knows how to make the guest feel at home. My room was clean and comfortable (at a very reasonable fare), breakfast was more than enough to start the day. It is definitely the kind of place I´d have stayed longer if I could...

The staff make you feel like family. Micheal the owner did everything he could to help me with money, places to eat and where to go. Rosin who is working there makes the best breakfast and is also super helpful when you have questions about the island. The hostel is not far from some nice beaches and you can walk to all the restaurants and shops.

We spent 5 days at Hotel Patrick and if we only had time we would stay much much more!
It was our base for daily trips around the island.
Unbelievably helpful staff! Beginning with helping with organizing daily trips to medical consultation.
Half a minute walk from the Hotel there are cool restaurants with delicious sea food, just at the beach.
Amazing view for the sunset!
You feel like the part of Michael's family during your stay there.
Hotel itself: great value for money!!!
