Hotel Patrick
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Juan Griego
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Honestly upon arriving we were a little shocked at the condition of our room since reading these amazing reviews. Nothing too terrible to say, I guess tripadvisor gave us such high expectations as everyone before us had Loved it! It's not the best place to stay in Margarita, not even by far, but for the money you pay and the great location AND not to mention there are few other economical options in Juan Griego, I would still recommend it to budget travellers, or short stays. What truly does give it a bump upwards are the owner and his wife. They are so friendly and really try to help you out when they can, either with directions, travel advice and if you need money exchanged. They made the place ..for sure.

ElHotelPatrick, Owner at Hotel Patrick, responded to this reviewResponded July 9, 2013

Hi. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. First off, sorry if the room wasn't properly cleaned. Our cleaner was on her holidays and my 18 year old son was responsible for cleaning the rooms in her absence. He's a good boy, but maybe a bit on the lazy side (not like his Dad) so I should have been behind him kicking his backside to make sure everything was done properly. That's my fault, so sorry again. As you saw, the rooms are small, but nice enough, with satellite TV (and a lot of channels in English). They have their own bathrooms with showers and hot water and AC. And most of then get a good wifi signal. For the price we charge, I think it's a good deal.

The thing in general about our Trip Advisor rating is that we here in Patrick find it all a bit strange. We are just a little 10 bedroom family-run bed and breakfast style place in a small sleepy town on teh quiet side of our Caribbean island. Mostly we look after backpackers and independent travellers from Europe, North America and from wherever else they arrive. I've lived here for years and travelled all over the country so I can usually help people sort stuff out (especially with Venezuela's money and curious exchange system). So I think most people give us great reviews because we take the time to try and help them, not because our wee hotel is something extra-luxurious. If you are arrving here expecting loads of facilities, then you might be a bit disappointed as this person seems to have been. But if you're looking for somewhere to chill out and feel at home, with people who won't rip you off and who will try to help you have a great time (and a few drinks at the bar) then Hotel Patrick's probably the place for you. Cheers.

On the Juan Griego beachfront lies Hotel Patrick. Owned by family man, Michael Harkness, it offers all a traveler can want. The place is littered with dogs and toddlers that provide a feeling that it's never empty. But nothing to keep you from sleeping late. Michael was very helpful with the efficient organisation of trips and with the money crisis we soon found ourselves in - bring US dollars! The rooms aren't pristine clean, but are decent for the price you will pay for them. Only a stones throw away from the quiet promenade and a taxi ride to the busier parts of the island, Hotel Patrick will offer you peace in paradise.

A small, cosy hotel with a great atmosphere. You feel at home as soon as you arrive at the Hotel. The rooms are comfortable with and the main area has a bar, TV, pool table and hammocks so it's great to relax there. The staff are friendly and helpful and it's situated about 20 meters away from the bay where you get lovely views and some of the best sunsets on Margarita! Great value for money.

This is the only place to stay in Margarita, they owners are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble.
Michael's music quiz is the best.!!!
We experienced the Eco Village trip - a must if you have the time. It is a wonderful insight into the Rain forest and the people who live there. We took the 2 night trip, go for longer if you have the time. All food is provided, and they cater very well for vegetarians.
Michael and Roisin can organise this and various other trips for you.

I spend 3 nights at Hotel Patrick and all I can see is that I felt very well there. Michael - the owner - himself is an awesome person (he saved my New Years´ Eve, by the way, by telling me the RIGHT place to go) and knows how to make the guest feel at home. My room was clean and comfortable (at a very reasonable fare), breakfast was more than enough to start the day. It is definitely the kind of place I´d have stayed longer if I could...

The staff make you feel like family. Micheal the owner did everything he could to help me with money, places to eat and where to go. Rosin who is working there makes the best breakfast and is also super helpful when you have questions about the island. The hostel is not far from some nice beaches and you can walk to all the restaurants and shops.
