We only had one nights stay here but it was just amazing and greatly needed after our trip to Angel Falls and our overnight in hammocks. The hotel looks standard from the outside but is just beautiful inside with lovely fountain features and decor. A large spiral stairs leads up to the pool area which has the most amazing views over the Orinoco river to catch the sunset in the evening. The staff were great and the chef even better. We were tired after our trip in Angel Falls so didn't want to venture out. We booked for dinner in the hotel and they recommended their speciality of fish and we had the most delicious 'lau lau' for dinner. We did pay more than you would in the local restaurants but it was worth it. The rooms are cosy and very clean and a nice big comfortable bed. The breakfast was great too. Would highly recommend staying here.
