We stayed in Casa Viento for 3 weeks in January. We didn't book and pay it in advance and didn't contact the american owner at all. The manager Mike is really courteous, nice and friendly.
Casa Viento has very good location on the hill with a great view from the terrace over lagoon , Porlamar and beach. Rooms don't have TV & air-conditioning, but really it is not needed as there was very windy inside the room all days. Also the hotels area is very nice - many flowes, trees, seen hummingbirds many times.
We were happy to have a kitchen with grill on the terrace and cooked fresh fish there very often. Breakfast was not so bad - fruits, cheese, ham, omelet, cereals, milk, yogurt, coffee, fresh juice, pancakes sometimes. It costs 5 USD pp.
The hotel itself looks old and needs major repairs as well as some rooms.
Casa Viento is a tourist class pausada and good value for money (40USD per room+5USD per breakfast /night).
Maybe we will stay there next season.
