The Casa Caracol is a fabulous hotel. My wife and I spent the first few days of our honeymoon in Margarita at the Casa Caracol. This is on the North side of the island and the closest beach is the Playa Caribe which is beautiful and was very quiet when we went (Apr 08).
The hotel is about 200m from the beach, up the road, in a small walled complex. It is very quiet and the layout is great. I think there are six rooms all situated around the pool. Each one has a patio area with it's own hammock.
Each room is in an individual building. On the ground floor when you walk in is the reception area with sofas and the bathroom. The reception area opens out on to the patio area. Up the stairs is the bedroom, this makes for a unique and different feel for a hotel.
On arrival we were greeted by the delightful staff and really well looked after. The food was fabulous. The cook truly excellent a mix of seafood or chicken or beef. The courses were enormous and always three courses in the evening. We were staying on half board, including breakfast and dinner.
The whole hotel centres around the beautiful pool which is one of the best that we have seen. Sitting on the loungers, small towels were laid out and regularly changed by the staff.
The whole hotel was very special and an ideal way to start a honeymoon. We could go to the beach if we wanted or hang around the pool or lounge in a hammock. All this alongside the lovely staff made the stay delightful.
Reading the other review, "Neil-OWEN" I can't imagine that we stayed at the same place as our experience was brilliant. 5 Stars
