I first stayed at this hotel as a child with my parents in the 1960's. It was the first Interconti in Venezuela and my parents attended the offical opening. ( and I believe the only one left as the others have been taken over by the government.) I am now in my 50s, but have great memories going to the hotel with my father to get a haircut or use the pool every weekend. Yes she does show her years, but on my last visit the floor I stayed on had been renovated. It was very nice.
The front desk has always been very helpful, and the bar staff of the lobby always remember me, even when I have been gone for six months.
The staff has always been great. Some do not speak English, but then one should be able to speak some Spanish or at least try, as I do when I travel to other non-English or Spanish speaking countries and try to know at least some of their language.
Caracas has changed for the worse, so when one is selecting a hotel in the city they need to look at security. There are some fine hotels in the city that may be closer to restaurants, etc. But the Tamanaco is located in a good area,away from all the traffic, with beautiful grounds and excellent security.
She may be showing her age, but it will always be my favorite for its location and so close to excellent restaurantes in Las Mercedes as well as the the campo de golf!
