We stayed for a conference at the Hotel Hacienda El Portete and were accommodated in the sister property Hacienda de Garcia. The grounds/gardens were beautiful, hammocks, two friendly parrots, a turtle named Sofia and a little kitty named Susie. This colonial building is well maintained but has kept its wonderful historical ambiance. This location is within walking distance to Playa Grande (25 mins) and the stores of Puerto Colombia/Choroni. Richard, who was our host during our stay, did everything to make our accommodations and our conference a great success and we really appreciated it. In addition, the price paid for accommodations was very reasonable.
There is a beautiful pool and a bar/restaurant located pool side. I also recommend Virgilio Espinal of Arekay Tours for a breathtaking jungle walk and birdwatching experience.

We were recommeded this place by Venezuelan colleagues, and they were spot on.
Its a small hotel, 24 rooms and 3 suites, all done nicely plain and simple, nothing luxurious, but really well done nonetheless.
The hotel is based around the families 300 year old cocoa plantation, some of the buildings are original while some are purpose built.
We were lucky enough to stay in one of the original rooms around the edge of the central cocoa pod drying area.
Our room was basic, but nice, private bathroom, fan and air conditioning, big bed, very clean and well maintained. Each room has its own giant hammock hanging outside, perfect for a lazy afternoon.
There is a central pool (nice and deep and large) with a bar from which breakfast, lunch and dinner are served.
Food was great - again basic but really well done, lovely fresh calamari and great steak as a main course.
Food prices were reasonable as was the drink prices.
There is internet, a games room with pool and table tennis and plenty of places to lounge around.
The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from port, along a road without footpath all the way, but there are plenty of taxis around if you dont fancy the walk.
Our host, whos name i didnt catch was great, he helped us plan our time in Choroni/Puerto Colombia, giving us suggestions of beaches to visit, places to walk and where to eat.
A perfect host, a great location, great food, freiendly staff, and a great price!

  • Liked — cute rooms, great staff, great value for money, beautiful location
  • Disliked — walk to the port
