When I arrived the air con was noisy in the room I had been able to request and this was immediately fixed. Not knowing my way around town when I first arrived and the various places to eat, the kitchen was good. As a vegetarian initially there were not many items on the menu for me to choose from but...

I stayed at the Cara Lodge in mid December and as usual I enjoyed every minute. The Cara burger and fries were the first food we had as we were fresh out of the jungle. Absolutely heaven to the taste buds . Rooms, service , breakfast top class and I can't wait to stay at the Cara again soon.

My overall assessment of this place is "average", at best. As highly rated as this small Guyanese hotel is (for which I am unclear), I found it to be an interesting, charming place, but a bit cold and unprofessional. That said, it could be so much better! Rooms could be better appointed with some additional art work, the ambience could... More

we stayed here for a total of 3 nights. the hotel is nice but the resturant is quite expensive and not very good. if you need to eat there are a ton of places within walking distance. its a very pretty hotel and you will feel comfortable staying here.

One lady in the group came early and complained she was overcharged compared to the quoted price. Walking around Georgetown, I did not see any foreign tourists yet this hotel was full of tourists. It is a... More
