Thanks to German, and all the staff - it was really a pleasure to stay here with my wife
Posada la Gaviota was a wonderful experience, unforgettable for all of us.
They make us feel at home from the first moment. The feeling of order, cleanliness and service are present in every detail. When we sat on the beach to see the sunset or have dinner under the huge tree at the front, is delicious.
The attendants are very nice, the chef enjoys talking to the guests an shares that home feeling when you see him baking bread or cooking the gourmet menu for the night or the omelets for the breakfasts .
On the beach at the islands the picnic is nice and healthy. the boats are punctual and clean,
We traveled with my mother who is 84 years old and she also had a perfect experience
We definitely recommend this Posada
The place is nice and well situated in the little town of Los Roques. The staff was very nice, but they did not speak a word of english despite the website states they do. Communication had to go through other guest with spanish skills. Dinner was great every day, but the waiter was a little to eager to remove the plates from the table, and before everybody was finished, gave us a sense of that we had to hurry eating. Breakfast was good. Lunchboxes was ok at best. The posada do not serve alcohol for dinner and do not have a bar for drinks and beer. Wine for dinner can be bought elsewhere and taken to the dinner table. Before and after dinner drinks can be bought at the bar next door. Water to toilettes and showers stopped working several times every day and had to be fixed by the staff. If this happend after 22:00, we had to wait unil morning to get it fixed because the posada went dark and quiet after this hour. Rooms was small, but ok clean. No internet. We had a nice stay and can reccomend the posada, but would probably choose another one if visiting again.
What I loved the most about this Posada was the food! they serve great gourmet meals (breakfast & dinner), also the boats depart right in front of Posada (very convenient). I spent my vacation doing Kitesurfing in the beautifull blue waters and my children and wife enjoyed doing snorkel.Tip: normaly the Posada Pakage includes trips to the beaches, however they don't take you into the archipielago, take advantage of a full day to book a tour to the archipielago and see the turtles and wild life of Los Roques!
I went to Los Roques with my sister on February 2011 and we had a great time at Posada La Gaviota!
Clean, organized and with a very attentive staff, always ready to help with anything you need.
Food was fantastic every day, with perfect packed lunches and three course dinner.
