I stayed with my wife for 3 days and 2 nights and since the day we arrived we felt looked after, making our experience a super relaxed one. The rooms have most of the amenities: comfy bed, hot water, drinking water, towels (for the room and for the beach), toiletries, A/C and a TV with cable channels that to be fair you won’t need to watch. The posada has a comunal table where you will take breakfast and dinner sharing experiences with other guests. This group experience proved better than we thought as other guests were willing to give us advice about where to go for a dance or what islands to visit. There’s a large terrace on the roof where we all gathered after the trips to wind down with free cocktails made by the posada employees, just before dinner. All meals were really included and food was plentiful and succulent! Including the lunch that was packed for the trips, it was delicious and included fruit, biscuits and a litre of water per person. Trips to the islands could be arranged by the posada and the tours were varied, the ones to the nearest islands were included. The trips to further islands were at a cost but they were totally worth it. Umbrellas and chairs were always provided, so no hassle at all! And last but not least, our hosts and employees were super attentive and were available at all times and gave us advice and tips about the island. I know that we don’t have points of comparison as we only have stayed here once, but given that we had a great experience and that it suited our budget, we will seek to stay here again.

Los Roques is a beautiful archipelago, part of the beautiful country of Venezuela. As it is an archipelago, don't expect to find any 5-star hotels within the island. Everything is in "posada" format. Think of it as a 3-star hotel. You won't find any Hilton, Marriotts, or Hyatts on the island. This isn't Bora-Bora where you will find spectacular accommodations; however, what you will find is the beautiful scenery of the beaches which are breathtaking. Ideally, you won't be spending much time in the posada; therefore, as long as you have the basic necessities, you should be content. Otherwise, regarding the Posada, it was basic but comforting. You had your room with functioning electricity and the decoration of the posada was cute. The host was also very warm and everyone working at the Posada clearly made it their priority that you felt comfortable. The communication with the owner of the Posada via e-mail was also quick and swift with no issues. The excursions were organized directly with the posada and was pleasant and effortless. Considering we went for the full package that included food, we had breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner all included. The food was delicious and was great. The dinner was of high class. It was quite impressive how a posada could create such rich good food. Otherwise, regarding the bed of the posada, it wasn't quite comfortable but after being out all day, it was natural to be extremely exhausted and to fall asleep like a little baby. Otherwise, the water of the shower was cold, or if at best, barely reaching the appropriate temperature of luke-warm. While this was frustrating, it was acceptable, as I'm typically low maintenance, but for most of my Western friends this would clearly be unacceptable. However, the most frustrating part of the posada was the almost non-existent internet. Within the island of Los Roques, getting cellular signal is almost impossible; therefore, relying on WiFi is important. The WiFi at the posada was very poor and would only function in one certain spot of the posada, if at best. Forget sending pictures or videos, it was almost too slow to send messages. Furthermore, the internet was non-functioning from the room. As someone who manages an online business, having access to the internet at least once a day is very important, as lacking the access to internet was a major letdown. Otherwise, everyone at the posada was very kind, warm, and it was quite evident they tried their very best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The price was reasonable; albeit, in USD. Keep in mind there are no Hiltons, Marriotts, or Hyatts here in Los Roques, so staying in a posada is really moreorless the only option.

From the first minute, they did everything, to make our stay as pleasant as possible! As soon as you land there, the staff will take care of your baggage and carry it back to the posada (the same when you go back to Caracas). Enrico (the guestkeeper) and the staff were always extremely friendly and they did everything to fulfill our wishes! The food was freaking delicious! Thanks to the two chefs! Even my girlfriend who normally doesn't eat fish, thought it was delicious (and that means something, trust me...). If you don't like fish or have allergies, it is no problem, they will take care of you ;-) The whole experience felt like we were one big family and we will definitely go back to this posada if we visit Los Roques again! Con: You can't flush the toilet paper. You must put it in the bin, beside you. At first it seems a bit off, but you will soon be getting used to. Tips: 1. Bring a lot of sun protection, because the sun is extremely strong and you could spoil your whole holidays with a sunburn. 2. Don't forget some mosquito protector. You might think there aren't any mosquitos (because they are so tiny), but there are. 3. Don't forget snorkeling equipment!

Visited in 2014. First of all, if you have even got this far as to look into Los Roques as a place to visit, I already know you are going to love it. It's not for beginner travelers, people who are fearful of the unknown or medically unstable. It requires multi-mode transportation to even arrive at the destination and you just have to trust that things are going to work out. I began emailing with Andrea with questions about the hotel. He was very responsive and helped us schedule out domestic flights from Caracas to the Islands and our taxi rides between airports (small flight leaves from another small airport, not the int'l one). Part of the booking he had to refer to a domestic flight agent who was also fine to work with. At the time, our int'l flights from NY were the most expensive cost of the trip. Everything else (room, board and included amenities) cost about $50/day. Once we committed, we were so excited, mostly because we had NO idea what to expect. We took our int'l flight, taxi to smaller airport, small plane to Gran Roque and finally arrived! It is such a tiny island, with a small airstrip and when we landed there was a little hut where you pay your fees into the Nat'l Park. Someone from the hotel was waiting for us and led us to a 5 min walk to the hotel. After all was said and done, I have trouble even calling it a hotel. It just felt like we were staying in someone's house like a guest. It was us and one other couple from Italy staying for the entire week we were there. The staff was so friendly, you get to know them by name and if you choose to - you get to know them as people, too. Accommodations were simple: a room, a bed and a bathroom. Tight space but the only time spent in the room was to sleep. Bed is not luxurious so beware if you have back problems but if you do you probably aren't traveling like this in general anyway. Second floor open deck for "happy hour" every day before dinner is a good way to wind down after long hours in the sun. Community dining room, everyone eats dinner together. Breakfast is whatever time you wake up, and lunch is to take with you on your day trips. The building is generally clean, cute and quaint...I'm telling you just like someone's home. Food was AMAZING!!!! We did the full board which included 3 meals. Breakfast was simple, a continental spread on the table and a choice of hot dish, eggs anyway you like. Lunch was my favorite because everyday they pay a go-lunch to take with you on excursions. Everything you need included in the cooler: plenty of water, drinks, snacks, a different cold lunch each day. Staff wheels the cooler to whichever boat you are taking so you don't even carry it. Dinner was remarkable. It felt like we were in a 5 star restaurant. Italian style with multiple courses. For me, I like to eat a lot and kept thinking I might want more soup or pasta or whatever was served, but by the end of all the courses i was always comfortably full, never still hungry or over stuffed. OMG everything was so super tasty, I'm remembering it all now! The staff sets you up each day with your cooler for lunch, they bring you to which ever boat you will be taking for the day. Usually leaving around 0930/1000 and returning about 1600/1700 hours in the afternoon. There are islands included and ones you pay extra for, but the "extra" only came out to like $10pp for the day or something. An island for water sports, an island for snorkeling, an island of seclusion for sun bathing, you name it! They set you up with your cooler and bigass umbrella with plenty of coverage from the sun if you need/want it. Wherever you end up, you are committed for the day and cannot return whenever you want FYI. Thinking back we never realized how abandoned we were god forbid anything were to have happened, but we never felt scared we just enjoyed ourselves so much! The best couples trip I have ever had!!! And I am a well traveled globe trotter! Of note, there were tons of stray dogs. We even started naming them because they hang out in the same spots every day. We loved "Doc" the name we gave the dog at the docks who we believed belongs or is being taken care of the person who was in charge and managing the boats. He was there every day greeting the tourists, making sure things were going the way they were supposed to be. However, we had one incident where my boyfriend got nipped. I was not there at the time so i didn't see it and don't know how it went down. But he said he was just sitting there and a dog randomly came over and bit his ankles (lol). Of course, the second I walk away...but it was not an issue, he was fine, not worried and we joked about it. El Gran Roque is the only inhabited island and it's population is just one neighborhood. Probably takes a leisurely 30 min to walk around the entire island.There is a small hike to the top of the island which is like 15-30 min depending how fast you go. Not a big incline at all, but once you get to the top you can see everything and miles and miles of ocean! Spectacular!!! Such a secluded place so again, you have to be street smart in getting there. Don't take any taxis you didn't pre-schedule, don't get drunk and wander around lost in Caracas. Once in Los Roques, you are safe as can be...unless you have some sort of medical problem i would be very concerned because you are miles and hours away from services. There is a clinic on island but if you needed anything beyond basic care I'd be worried. I added my review of the general island because it's part of the hotel experience. We loved Posada Lagunita and have the best memories of the food, people and endless beaches! We always talk about going back.
