On December 13th we checked into the Le Meridien Pegasus hotel in Georgetown, Guyana for six nights. The hotel is immacualte, along with the staff being very friendly and attentive. The property has been there six the late 60's, so some of the furnishings are dated. However, the room was very clean, plenty of towels and amenities were left by the housekeepers, along with more bottled water than we could possibly handle. Although, I did drink the tap water in Georgetown and did not experience any sort of stomach problems.
Each room has a small balcony overlooking the capital. Our room was overlooking the pool; we had a great view. The pool at this hotel is huge and kept very clean. Towels are given out at the pool. Stretched along the poolside there are several lounge chairs for sunbathing.
The food at the hotel is a bit on the pricey side, but still very good. I would not recommend eating at the hotel every night, since there are so many very affordable places to eat right in Georgetown. Good and cheap Chinese restaurants galore!!!! Great bakeries for morning all over the city. Try the Salt and Pepper bakery near the market area.
The main bar at the hotel is right near the pool and main restaurant area. It stays open until about 1:00 am. Drinks are good, bartenders are friendly, but again drinks are a bit over priced. About three blocks up the main street from the hotel is a real nice bar/restaurant called the Palm Court, which stays open until about 3:00 am.
We enjoyed about week in Guyana, as we also did enjoy the Le Meridien Pegasus,and would return there on any future trips to Guyana.
