    It is not far to the beach. One goes through the area in the pool area. Desk delte /canaima are only on english and very expensive. The two day excursion costs per person 390, - €. The airport porlamar runs manca. 30 minutes

  • Gastronomy
    2.0

    3 restaurants and 4 bars. The best restaurant is the à la carte. Unfortunately you could only time per week as reserve. In premuimbereich, each meal, even if he premium not booked. Therefore too many guests. The guests come for breakfast in my pjs food. The refill at the buffet took very long. There is very little choice. The atmosphere is from the morning until the evening or in the night until 4 hours drinking and noise.

    We spent a week in butter in the restaurant waited. In the room was the telephone line right from the first day dead. They brought with them 3 new telfone. It has 10 days until you realized that it was the line is. Foreign languages: At the front desk is only Marco the german understands. You should perfect spanish. Because you got along with english not far, because they want the language not understand. Every 2. day you got a towel too little. Also with tips it was not better. They want no europeans!

    There was a modern flat screen tv. But, no german program. There was also a minibar. But, never filled. The balcony door could not be locked. The air conditioner should be cleaned!

The hotel would have been in Germany less stars as it in Venezuela has, but that should be expected, if you are in such countries. The hotel is fairly distributed, so a bus the premium to the main hotel and to the beach goes. On foot it was about 5 minutes. Wi-fi in the main hotel and in the premium area. In the hotel you will find mainly south american tourists and canadians. Alone a somewhat outdated hotel. read hotel review

    The ' à-la-carte-restaurant ' is recommendable. The selection of food in the other three restaurants was unfortunately somewhat poor. Unfortunately, there was too few fruit however therefor a wide selection of desserts.

    The beach is really fantastic. The sea is very warm but unfortunately there are often very high waves, so that it for children is totally unsuitable. The next airport is located in porlamar (about 20 minutes ) by car, there one has also the best shopping on the island. At night it is however very dangerous and we were advised against after 18 o'clock to leave the hotel, that is why we have not done. Otherwise you'll get the most of it in Juan griego (about 10 minutes). From the hotel you have the possibility to a taxi to take, there is always some cards the front desk. As well as buses and you could also a rental car rent.

    The service is very good. The employees are friendly and every request of the guests concerned. They spoke mainly spanish, whereby the employees the front desk very well english and partly also spoke german. The restaurant staff speaks rather broken english but understand definitely what you would like. Complaints were always polite taken

    The hotel offers a very good entertainment, you could its full ability to fill. Evening entertainment was unfortunately only in spanish, which however not was so bad, since it mainly shows was. The disco we didn't use, as it's a bit stinking... At the beach and at the pool were always enough chairs available. But we would the pools the main hotel not recommend, since this unfortunately very dirty. Is better the pool in the premium area.

The hotel has a nice, large area. The shuttle bus from the premium range to the front desk constantly drives (maximum wait about 5 minutes, but mostly less). The rooms had flaws, after (easy) room change. These were for us but acceptable. The cleanliness was okay. The main building with reception, bar, stay and restaurant needs a renovation; the cleanliness in the bar and the restaurant much to be desired. In the premium range is another restaurant, this is clean and the food is good. The choice-as usual-not the biggest, but you could always find something delicious. Otherwise there was ... just fresh pasta. The food was mostly cool, if you at the table was (maybe because of the strong air conditioning?), but to it one gets accustomed. The beach was not really clean, but the food was also good. The beach is great and clean. The swim in the sea was somewhat limited, since we strong waves had (more for ' romp ', but not for infants). The entertainment (theater) is in spanish. Otherwise still the disco. Billiards, table tennis of course you could also play, cinema there are also (in spanish). At the bars is unfortunately no music in the evening, except for karaoke (monday, wednesday And friday, if i remember correctly). You should definitely go on excursions, when it comes 14 days didn't get bored. Delta canaima (TUI) is worthwhile definitely! The Jeep Safari as an island tour was also great. Shopping you could easily in the shopping center sambil (the best by taxi and time for return mind, only on the return trip to pay for). For three stars the hotel i would recommend. Some providers have this 4 stars. If you 4, should pick another hotel. read hotel review
