Its great to find in Venezuela such an amazing place that keeps up to high standrds. The staff is incredibly kind and helpful and makes sure you enjoy yet without being intrusive. The rooms are impecably clean and the gardens are well kept. We ordered breakfast served in the terrace and i must say it is an amazing way to wake up in the morning. Only details that i told manager to fix was the lighting in the garden as well as providing working wifi conection. Other than that i strongly recomend you give Posada Don Elicio a chance you wont regret it!
The feel to the place is warm and cozy, it's inviting and peaceful. The dinner was delicious: tomato carpaccio with a soft cheese on top, filet mignon and mashed potatoes, followed by an exquisite apple strudel. While you dine, a couple play the violin and the guitar. It was very beautiful and romantic. The rooms are super clean and inviting, perfect for a romantic evening. And, of course, the best part was having breakfast on the terrace with the morning mist and the most amazing view. I would totally recommend it for anniversaries, a special birthday for your significant other or just a nice getaway with your loved one. I wouldn't recommend it for families with small children since the place doesn't have kid entertainment.
We were a group of 12 people travelling for a convention and we were all facinated. Facilities of the hotel are just amazing with cozy and spotless rooms. The overall atmosphere makes you feel you have traveled to Germany, also the view from the bedroom terrace was spectacular. The staff is always very friendly and extremely helpful. There is no proper words to describe the food, and by that we mean is just awesome! We were very pleased with the hotel and its service, and would definitely visite them again.
I love this posada! It is a bit outside of town, so it's nice to have a car while you are there in Colonia Tovar to get in to see the small tourist sites or buy fresh produce from local growers in the village. If you go during "Oktovarfest" in October, the posada can help arrange golf-cart taxis to shuttle you between the posada and the festivities. The posada itself is cozy and beautiful. They decorate the rooms with such nice fairy-tale-like touches, such as fresh flowers all over the room (in vases and also tucked into the bathrobes, towels, etc.) and lace doilies. Dinner is tasty, and breakfast is super awesome (I looooove the "arepas dulces" with nata cream!). Sometimes they even have live music during dinner. When you come back to the posada after a walk around town there is usually tea, coffee, and cake in the lobby for guests to enjoy. When you awake in the morning there is usually a small wicker basket with a thermos of coffee and biscuits to hold you over until the big breakfast starts. The grounds are pretty, with lots of flowers and views of the valley and town below. A great getaway from the bustle of Caracas! PS: on the way out of town stop by the ceramics store for a nice piece of glazed pottery to commemorate your visit!…
I went with my husband to Colonia Tovar in December 2013 for a 3 day trip. The hotel was amazing with cozy, spotless rooms and a large very comfortable bed. The overall atmosphere of the bedroom and the hotel makes you feel that you have traveled to a part of Germany. The view from the bedroom terrace was spectacular. The only disappointment was that they didn't offer any meals during the weekdays. My recommendation is that they should at least serve breakfast and drinks, although they offered us complementary coffee and a cookie every morning. Sra Mary was very friendly and extremely helpful and recommended to us the best places to dine in town (Hotel Bergland and Selva Negra). Overall we were very pleased with the hotel and its service, and we would definitely go again.
