We we're lured to the BVH on the basis that we'd seen publicity to suggest that it had been given a bit of a refurb and - as the TA reviews were so old - decided to give it a whirl. After all, what could be so bad? We used to stay at The Hilton before Mr C and his...

I stayed here for 2 days while waiting to get into a condo in a better area. The Bella Vista is a lower class hotel in front of a dirty beach, and in an area that you do not walk around in at night. The only upside is that there are plenty of shops within walking distance. Condos are easy...

The view was decent from our room, and we made good use of the pool. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, although the location left something to be desired. I would recommend staying here only if you are interested in the shopping and nightlife available in Porlamar. Otherwise, head for the beaches.

This hotel lacks not only better rooms, but most importantly, SECURITY! A terrible scene happended while we were there. A group of taxi drivers from the hotel were hitting some hotel guests right there at the lobby! they hit them so bad there were broken noses, ribs, and blood was on the floor. There was no security personnel in place,...

I had read in a few guide books that this was a luxury hotel. I wanted to treat my boyfriend and myself to two luxurious nights in a nice hotel. WE WERE THOROUGHLY DISAPPOINTED. Immediately upon seeing the room I knew it wasn't worth it (ugly room, uncomfortable bed, leaky shower, and no sound proofing), but we were exhausted. I...

We stayed at the Bella Vista for a week in February. It was not the best place we had been but it was not the worst. For all you people that changed your reservation and went to a different hotel, you lost out on meeting 16 wonderful people. You could pick out the negatives or enjoy the fact that you...

Hotel Bella Vista, Margarita Island. In January 2006, my daughter and I purchased a vacation package from GoTravel Direct in Ottawa, Canada. We spent one week at Hotel Bella Vista and felt like we had been had...you name it...it was wrong. The beach was covered in garbage and broken glass.

The hotel Bella Vista is 50 years old and showing its age. The rooms were frayed and faded and the staff was relatively unhelpful as they spoke little to no english. If you do not speak Spanish definitely avoid this hotel. The beach is terrible and the food is of low quality (and quantity-they kept running out of pastries and...
