“White sand paradise”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I stayed at this resort for 2 nights during a stay on Margarita Island at the end of February:

The service was great, the room was clean and the outdoor shower was a very nice change from the norm. The price was quite reasonable too.

The food was always good - I could always find something I enjoyed and I think I even gained a couple of pounds while I was there. The music at the bar at night wasn't my bag but I was entertained. The beer was cold and always available and I tried some of the cocktails and enjoyed them all. The biggest attraction for me on Coche is the beautiful white sand beach. It was never very crowded - you could walk 30 yards away from the resort and have the place to yourself if you wanted to.

The bungalows are numbered kind of randomly, and because they all look alike, it took a little while to get to find my way back and forth (copious amounts of alcohol didn't help).

I would like to go back to Coche for a week or more next time and take the time to explore the island a little. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this resort again and would recommend it without hesitation.

Great service, clean rooms, beautiful white sand beach, very well maintained gardens and the coolest outdoor showers. The resort is made up of small bungalows in small clusters and is situated on one point of the island. There is not much to do at night time as there isnt any real entertainment and the music is very loud and geared toward the younger crowd. We took a bus tour around the island that was great, a few interesting things to see and our tour guide was perfect. We went back to Margarita Island for an all day Jeep Off Roading trip and that was well worth the time and inexpensive. That all being said, this resort didn`t disappoint us and we had a wonderful relaxing holiday!!

I have been to many resorts on Margarita Island, and this venue on Coche island is the best resort if travelling to Venezuela.
The beaches are safe, clean, wide and beautiful white sands, the water is clear . Plenty of umbrellas/ chair with service. Nice size pool. The sleeping quarters (suites) are clean and good, with private outdoor showers and large LCD TV (satellite). The grounds are remarkable and features a variety of trees/ plants around the complex.Special attention was obviously put into this and it is wonderful to walk around and see the huge variety. The staff is friendly, but service can be better.
The island is safe to go around (unlike Margarita island or the mainland). Tours of the island ar nice to see, excursion to snorkeling is mediocre, but to the adjacent Isla Cubagua is a must (1st Venezuelan settlement in early 1500's .
Food quality is boring. Only Local cooking is available with 1 restaurant.
Night music at the bar/ dance lounge is loud and if you book the suites close, you will find it difficult to sleep.
The island also features next to the complex, a Kite-boarding venue/ school.
No fitness center !
Note: Do not change your currency at the bank. You can get 3-4X more at the resort store or beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a room/ suite away from the bar/ lounge to avoid loud music ...

I went with my family, husband and my girls (7 & ( years old), also with all my in-laws (16 in total). We had an amazing experience in this great hotel. We took a flight from Caracas to Margarita Island, people from the hotel were waiting for us at the airport, then we took a boat to Coche island (about 25 min), then another lithe bus took us to the hotel (about 3 - 5 min). Everything was very professional and on time. Our bedroom were not ready but they hold ours suitcases and told us to have a drink and eat and enjoy the pool or beach. Few time later the beds were ready. Bedroom were clean, the bathroom doesn't have ceiling and I loved it. It feels your are taking a shower with coconut water. Food were very tropical; lots of local fish, arepas, empanadas, soups, grains, etc. They don't serve much meat, grills, etc. Entertainment was fun, we danced all nights. Music is all about salsa, merengue, regueton and some hip hop. But the most amazing was the amazing beach; white sand and clear water and unbetable! Go, go go!

Great service, great food. You won't find luxury but a peaceful place where to spend your holidays. Clean towels and proper room service everyday.To be honest there are not many options in the island but for me this is the best. I have stayed twice in this hotel with my husband who always wants to come back to Venezuela to get there. The only problem we noticed is the vehicle used to transport the luggage and guests, a kind of truck that makes your five-minute trasportation from the pier to the hotel very uncomfortable. Fortunately you will forget this as soon as you get to the hotel.

Pros:
- the pool area is really nice, although I hated when staff turned the music on really loud;
- the beach is just next to the hotel; not my cup of tea, but if you like flat water and wide, sandy beaches, you're gonna love it;
- there's kitesurfing spot just next to the hotel, arguably one of the best spots for this sport in the world (good winds, flat, shallow water);
- shower's on the outside of bungalows!

Cons:
- food was just terrible; and it's got nothing to do with "local" stuff - I've eaten much better on the streets of Caracas; the food served in Punta Blanca is just bland, fresh fruits were the only part really worth waiting for;
- the rooms are spacious but not very cosy, with just few pieces of furniture; TV-set is too small considering the distance from the bed; aircon noisy;
- the WiFi works only in the reception area and few neighbouring bungalows, but it's really, really slow anyway;
- the staff was not rude, but I wouldn't describe them as polite either (must add I speak fluent Spanish); my general impression is that Venezuelans are not very open and friendly to strangers, hotel employees just fit this description; there was just one lady in the reception who stood above the rest, big kudos to her! overall - sometimes you feel those people are doing you a favor of letting you stay at their place.

Room Tip: Might want to try room 1001 if you want to catch WiFi from the reception area on your porch.
