Review “Best Value Hotel in Los Roques”



I am not completely sure what people are complaining about. Posada Dona Carmen was much better than I thought it would be after reading all the negative reviews. The rooms are spacious, clean, with AC or fans. Rooms number 5 and 6 are beach front. They give breakfast and dinner. The food is better than typical Venezuelan posada food. meals were typical Venezuelan breakfasts, Arepas, cheese, soem kind of meat and eggs. Dinners were usually three courses, an appetizer, a main meal, and dessert.
The Posada has that main square on one side and the main beach (from whcih you catch your boats to the swimming beaches) on the other. That makes it ideally located for carrying heavy coolers to the boat, getting drinks or supplies from the local stores, and joining the party in the Plazas in the evenings. The most popular bar on the main island is right next door which can get loud, but our rooms were mid hotel and back so we never heard the revelry.
The people who rated this posada very low must not have traveled in Venezuela much. I think that the others who said they were disappointed were expecting something more like a Holiday Inn. We have been living in Venezuela for years and we thought this Posada was on par with any we have stayed at in this country.
You have to remember that Los Roques is generally very overpriced. beers are twice what you would pay on the mainland, ice is a precious commodity, and all lodging is at lest double what an equivalent lodge on the mainland would be. Its like that because they know you'll pay for it to spend some time in the beauty of the islands.
Of course the beach right in front of the Posada is not for swimming. NONE of the beaches on Gran Roque are for swimming. You are supposed to take a boat and go to the good beaches. And for the lady that said 'Angry Locals yelled from their dinghy's'; of they yelled at you you were being stupid and swimming in a dangerous area. Plus they fish for a living and you were disrupting their work.
I would recommend this hotel based on what you get for what you pay. You can get something a little bit better for a lot more money, but why waste you money when this is a perfectly good place for a lot less money?

Review “Several visits ended with theft from the safety deposit”



I have been to Los Roques many times - more than ten at least - and stayed at Dona Carmen several of these visits. While I have suspected theft before, it was confirmed this last visit. It is with a heavy heart I had to email the owner, on behalf of our six man strong Swedish sports fishing group, because I love Los Roques and would like the truth to be different. The location of this posada is good, and the value is OK for Los Roques, but it ended up to be an expensive story.
In short, we left the deposit to the old woman in charge, for safety keeping. But instead of keeping our valuables safe, several hundred USD as well as several thousand BSF was stolen. All in all we estimate the loss to over 700 USD divided on six persons. In addition to this another guest had a camera and a cell phone stolen. Very sad for us to see that our beloved Dona Carmen is not to be trusted. We lost some more faith in Venezuela. And Dona Carmen lost several returning as well as potential customers. In addition to this, the staff are rude most of the time and the food are considered horrible by most guests we talk to. We got tourist diarrhea a few times during every visits to this posada, but since the price is relatively good and the location is convenient when you carry many rods, we kept returning, hoping for a better cook every year. Until this last visit. Now we had enough! Pick another place if you value your belongings, a friendly smile or good food.

Review “Choose this one if you have no other option”



I recently stayed in this posada as a part of a package I had. I found it to be in good location and the room I had was by the sea(only 2 rooms have that choice) those are the 2 good points about the place,the room itself was very basic and hot, we had a Fan and the bathroom was old and not hot water although clean. The food was included but it was very simple and nothing to remember, The owner is very arrogant and is always watching TV. I would not recommend this place for a Romantic weekend or if you planned to stay in your room as there are no facilities in there, it's just good enough to sleep and keep your clothes in, in any case you spend the whole day around the beautiful islands
