The reception was very good. Internet is OK if yiour gold or you have to pay for it. Breakfast was OK, but not for the price if you have to pay for it. If your Gold or higher your good otherwise it csn be pricy. Room was OK, but nothing stood out as being beter then average. Nice pool.

Good: 15 min to the airport, nice view, nice pool, you can charge the taxi to the room ( no common in venezuela ) No good: the service in the restaurant is the worst! We wait for a fried fish 40 min and was wasted, easy drinks like Pepsi and beer last 15 min, the people in the lobby have...

We stayed one night before heading off to Los Roques. The hotel is a short taxi ride from the airport. How short depends on the time of day, as traffic around the airport is chaotic. The room was perfectly adequate. The bathroom was large and included a nice shower area. The hotel is right on the coast and has its...

We needed to spend a night in Caracas airport area, waiting for our connection flight to Barcelona/Puerto la Cruz. Marriott playa grande is only a couple of miles away from the airport, overlooking the sea and a small marina. Rooms are ok, food service at restaurant is a bit slow but after all we only needed one night ret. Expensive...

The star rating clearly does not mean a thing nowadays. This hotel would rate as a 3 star hotel in the US. The things that are wrong with this hotel has to do mostly with the rating it supposedly has and the money you get charged for that "quality", the location and most important for me, safety. They do give...

Stayed here at the beginning and the end of our trip to Venezuela. Very good hotel by Venezulean standards. close to the airport, helpful staff. There is a store and a cafe opposite the hotel. The cafe does great pizza so if you don't want to eat in the hotel there is an alternative. The pool area is very pleasant...

I stayed at this Marriott for two one-night stays during this month. They were between international flights in/out of Venezuela and internal flights in-country. The hotel is in a back street, near the beach. The area is quite run down, and there are stray dogs everywhere. The hotel lobby is nice enough, though there was not enough front desk staff...

This is a nice hotel but not amazing for the price, however if you want a safe and comfortable hotel to stay for a night while waiting for a flight in Caracas then it's perfect. The rooms are clean and comfortable and it has a lovely terrace overlooking the coast. The bar food is ok - mostly sandwiches, burgers and...

The hotel seemed brand new. I spent two nights there. The restaurant was OK, but the room, lobby, elevator, etc. were all brand new and top notch. WiFi was on the slow side but for Venezuela it was acceptable.
