“Stopover”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

Basic accomodation seemingly part of the Cacao Travel company - they booked us in.
Bit of a hike (20km) if, like us, you´re using it as just a stopover after a late international flight into Caracas & leaving before dawn on a domestc flight. Didn´t see it in daylight.
Location far from city life but not devoid of noise.
Common parts & pool OK, but would have chosen a location closer to the airport.

Let me start by saying how intimidating I found Caracas. We arrived about 8pm and had a private transfer in a vehicle with darkened windows and curtains drawn. We arrived at Costa Real, where our drivers assistant disembarked and arranged for the heavy gate to be opened, while we stayed locked on board with the driver. The gates opened and then we drove in, the gates closed, then we disembarked.

However once inside the gates, we found an amazing place. A lovely pool area, where the owner produced some swordfish steaks and soon we were eating by the pool late at night. Our rooms were clean and spacious, in what was once probably a very nice area.

I've posted some photos from the hotel to show you the surrounds. Despite being very close to the beach, we were discouraged from simply strolling down 'for our own safety'.

For us, Caracas was merely the entry point for some of the most amazing scenery in the world, Salto Angel, Canaima Ntaional Park, and the impressive stilt villages out on Lake Maracaibo where we witnessed the Catatumbo Lighthouse.

I would have rated the hotel even higher but I feel we were 'got at' with the exchange rate. Rooms and dining charged in Boli's, then converted to the official exchange rate, meaning we paid far more than the going street exchange rate.

Having said that, if I'm ever in Caracas again, I would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Discuss charges and exchange rate in advance of your stay or eating to avoid any 'surprises'

I had a great layover here. It is a nice place. You have to pay extra for breakfast. It was nicely made. Lounge area is sweet and rooms are also nice.

Unfortunately I sleped bad because of a roster in the neighborhood.

In October 2010 I have had a 24-stopover in Caracas. Most hotels in Caracas are very, very expensive. The Costa Real Suites have had acceptable rates (68 EUR night) and it was a good place to stay. The suites are fully equipped with kitchen, living room, bathroom and sleeping room. And in the living room there is a hammock as well! The place itself is safe, but I don't know if the area around the hotel is safe also. If you want to hang around in Caracas, you won't like this hotel, because it is far away from the city. But if you are looking for a place not too far from the airport, I can recommend Costa Real Suites.

This was a 5 story Hotel with 3-1 bedroom suites on each floor. Everything was new, polished and everything one would want. There is central air, cooking facilities if you want, T.V., even a hammock in the livingroom which my wife always wanted. The manager's dad named Jose(Joe in English) spoke Spanish and English. As soon as we rang the buzzer at the gate it was answered and we were allowed on the Compound which contained a pool, dining area, lobby type area and seating area. The staff were quick and right away brought two drinks for us as a welcome drink. We had the most beautiful room and we could see the Ocean outside. This is a residential area close to the main highway. The staff were all nice and friendly and my wife even went into the kitchen and was all proud that it was so clean and she had learned to do a Spanish dish out of bananas. Joe had asked what we wanted for Dinner. Choice carne(beef), pollo(chicken) or pescado(fish). We ordered and when we came downstairs there was a setting for two and dinner was on time along with alcohol if one wished. Very nice meal and done as we advised. The same for breakfast the next morning. What time did we desire Breakfast and all was set again for two. Excellant work. A taxi driver who was friends with Joe took us to a Banking Machine and then told us to go shopping if we wanted to. The next morning the same driver took us to Caracas Airport early in the morning. He seemed to know everyone in the area where we stayed which was about 18 km from the International Airport. I would recommend this Hotel to all. It is I believe East and not towards Caracas where we were warned that Crime is Big. We stayed two nights before we left on our flight. Stayed in Venezuela almost 6 weeks. Like I said, Best Kept Secret. If anyone wants more info or pictures please email. Have a great holiday. Bob

Excellent option to spend the weekend or even more days very close to the beach.... "Paya Escondida".
The suites are gorgeous, the staff is very kind, the food (breakfast) was delicious.... I spent hours sunbathing and getting in and out of the swimming pool that has just the right size to be cozy.... a truly lovely place!
