The food was terrible. My room didn't lock and all that could fit was a bed with an attached bathroom. I was one person but I don't know how anyone could fit 2 people in the room. It is next to the square which has music blasting all day and night. It was disgusting and ruined my experience in Los...

Nice place, very friendly and helpful staff, allowed us to use the kitchen to prepare some snacks, provided a cooler for free, wifi in the terrace and living room, A/C worked regular but no mosquitos in the bedroom. Excellent location, in front of the Plaza Bolívar, next to the bank, in front of the beach, good illumination at night so...

I have never stayed in a hotel, hostel or b&b where the staff was so unfriendly, unmotivated and straight out rude. The guy that opened the door, the first day we got there was visibly annoyed at any inquiry we made during our stay (related to the time of breakfast or dinner, ice coolers to take on our trip or...

Went to Los Roques with 11 friends from Brazil for a Kitesurfing trip and Dona Carmen was an excellent choice. We booked 3 rooms, two of them were beach front (without aircon) the other one had no direct access to the beach, but had aircon. The rooms are quite simple, don't expect any luxury. However, they are clean, well priced...

I have been to Los Roques many times - more than ten at least - and stayed at Dona Carmen several of these visits. While I have suspected theft before, it was confirmed this last visit. It is with a heavy heart I had to email the owner, on behalf of our six man strong Swedish sports fishing group, because...

In reading some of the other reviews, one needs to keep in mind that, unless you are spending an extraordinary amount of money, customer service in Venezuela in general is often terrible. As a country with plenty of oil, Venezuela hasn't developed much of a tourist infrastructure; thus, when a staff doesn't obsequiously bend over backwards to serve you, it...

I am not completely sure what people are complaining about. Posada Dona Carmen was much better than I thought it would be after reading all the negative reviews. The rooms are spacious, clean, with AC or fans. Rooms number 5 and 6 are beach front. They give breakfast and dinner. The food is better than typical Venezuelan posada food. meals...

I've found the posadas in Los Roques to be over priced in general. You can definitely find nicer and more modern establishments if you're willing to pay the price. If you are looking for an affordable, clean, but basic place to sleep then Posada Doña Carmen is the place for you. I stayed at Posada Doña Carmen over spring break....

We stayed at Dona Carmen in December 2008- and found it to be of very poor value. It came in a package, but after a night there, we asked to change to a new hotel/ "posada". Rooms are basic, but most problematic was the noise (there were parties every night on the main square; since the posada is on the...
