Due to its convenience for Caracas airport, the coastal town of Macuto is the ideal place to stay for a positioning night. All the hotels here are rather characterless. Ole Caribe is the best of the 4* options, but nothing special. All the rooms have: Satellite TV, a/c, mini-bar, hair-dryer, security box and the hotel has a swimming pool.

This is our favourite hotel on Margarita Island, located on in a remote part of the island it is the perfect place to relax with a stock of books. It is a stylish small 6 roomed hotel situated in a walled garden stocked with flowering tropical plants, set around a lovely swimming pool 7 mins walk from Playa Caribe Beach. Each "house", has an upstairs, galleried bedroom with a living room and bathroom downstairs. These all have air conditioning, ceiling fans, mini bar, telephone, TV / VHS and a private patio with hammock. A spacious palm-thated churuata (airy round structure) houses a bar area and small restaurant for hotel guests. The hotel has its own "beach" club on Playa Caribe.

Guests stay on a full board basis and are taken out to one of the nearby coral islands with a sun umbrella, picnic lunch and deck chairs each day. Delicious Italian home cooking. Very caring and personable owners who are often in residence.
