One night stay

Posted 24-Jan-2015
Pros: Nice and quiet !
Cons: It would be nice that if there was someone in the office during the day to ask questions if necessary.
Location: Within walking distance to one of the best restaurant on the island, The Flying Fishbone A+++++
We stayed here one night before we could get into our condo and it worked perfect for this. It was nice and would stay again if the needed.

Family owned, local flavor B&B

Posted 22-Jan-2015
Pros: I loved the pool, it's laid back, far from other tourists, and more local in flavor.
Cons: Just general maintenance, and making sure the trash cans don't let mice get to the food. Warning about mosquitoes would have been appreciated.
Location: It's Savaneta so you DEFINITELY need to rent a car for the week else it will be extremely inconvenient. It's near Zeerover & The Flying Fishbone. YUM.
First thing is, we couldn't find the place. We saw the sign on the right & huge blue bunkers on the left but getting inside was a different story. Basically, park where it says G&G Pizza. Breakfast = amazing. Yes, repetitive after the 5th or 6th day but the first 3 days it's heavenly. Gareth was MOST helpful in finding us sushi, great places to eat, and an evangelical church, where we hung out with an older Venezuelan couple that were just SO AMAZING. We took them to Iglesia Maranatha and they took us to Benihana. Be warned that there is no hot water, but outdoor showers 6-10 pm under the stars were absolutely divine. Not for everyone, I'm told. DON'T leave any kind of food out or leave food in the trash can, even, put a small plastic bag in the large one and throw it out the next day. Critters will come! Loved the pool. Dive in in the morning, throw on a bathrobe and saunter to breakfast. You'll see hummingbirds, geckos, and butterflies galore. Unfortunately, mosquitoes as well. And if you have sweet blood like me, MAKE SURE you get a mosquito net, ESPECIALLY in Suite 6 where they love to congregate like a water cooler. Flory was so sweet to get me one late into the 2nd night when it fell on deaf ears the first time I asked someone else, ahem. One of my favorite things were meeting the other guests @ praying for them. You exchange tidbits, ideas, prices, etc. LOVE the staff. So friendly. Great TV. Honestly my sister would give this place 5 stars she loved it so!

My wife and I spent 3 nights there in early January 2015. We enjoyed our stay, but I feel compelled to report that there is no hot water for shower and the light was very poor in the room. Also, at the time I signed in I was alerted that it was the last room available. That turned out to be not true. If they fix those problems I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

What a great place with great people

Posted 27-Oct-2014
Pros: Everything. Almost feels like home. Just wish I had those beaches were I live.
Cons: Hot water in the shower. There's only hot water on an outdoor shower.
Location: You should have (rent) a car if staying in Savaneta. However there are lots of restaurants and grocery stores at walking distance.
Chose the place because of the (lowest) price but kept my expectations low. Was only going to stay there half my staying and then move to a nicer and bigger resort. No reason to do it. Staff was great, owner (Arias) lives right next door and is such a great guy. Room was huge. Actually is a one bedroom apartment with living room, kitchen, big bedroom with a nice 46/50" flat screen, DVD, VCR. Movies are also provided there. Gabriel, the chef has breakfast built to order and all you can eat pizza night on Wednesday. They also provide a nice city tour with an ATV to the Natural Pool, cave and other places only available with 4wd. Definitely coming back.

Paradise outside of the hotel district

Posted 30-Sep-2014
Pros: The owners live on site and are very helpful. The random wildlife that find their way on the grounds (Crabs, Lizards, ect) and the LOCATION!!
Cons: A phone to make local calls so you don't have to bother the owner, although they didn't seem to mind. Wifi access in the entire room
Location: It's in a quite neighborhood, a small beach a short walk, Other beaches short drive away, great food at G&Gs great prices on site and in the area
Our room was very clean and extreemly spacious. The water in the room was warm enough but we showered outside a majority of the time because it was so amazing to wash with the sun on your back or right under the stars. The property was clean and so were the pools. Breakfast was good but a little menu variance wouldn't hurt. The hotel isn't over run with people which we liked, we always had the pool to ourselves. Take the sunrise tour with Arias, it was amazing!! I would recommend this B&B to anyone who doesn't need every second of their trip planned for them and likes to venture out and see how the locals live. This place is also great if you never want to leave the property, they have a great pizza place on site with amazing wings, a few markets in walking distance, a great selection of movies to watch and they have all you can eat pizza and pasta nights. There is a cashew tree, mango tree and coconut tree on the property. When our car broke down flory(owner) called roadside assistance for us, they are very helpful.
