A friend and I stayed for 4 nights at the posada after an exhausting trekking tour through Peru. The reservation was very easy done via email. Andrea was very friendly (perfect english) and arranged everything including hotel for transfer in Caracas, airport service in Caracas, air tickets with Chapi Air to Los Roques and the reservation for the posada itself. We got an attractive package price. Once arrived at the posada and after having paid a local stamp tax (213 Bolivares) at Los Roques we were picked up by the friendly posada staff. At the posada the manager welcomed us. We got a nice twin room with two separate beds (AC, separate bath room). Small room, not very luxury, but very clean and very convenient. Don't compare there rooms with a 5 star hotel. It is more like a very good 3 star hotel room. The best is the staff: Very friendly, offering tips what to do in this little paradise. They are bringing you to the boots and picking you up. Everything is possible. The staff speaks spanish and also english. So it is very easy to communicate. As the posada is very small (4 rooms), you, the other guests and the staff quickly feel like in a family. And can vacation be better? The food is also awesome: We booked half board. So, we good a nice breakfast, also including pancakes or scrambled eggs, tea, coffee, juice, jam, ham, cheese, cake, cereals, etc. Eventhough we only booked only half board we got a lunch box for free containing: sandwiches, salad, soft drinks, beer, chocolate and other snacks. This lunch box was carried for us everyday to our island of choice, where we spent the day with beaching, snorkling or just in the sun. Los Roques itself is not having a nice beach. Best part of the day was the free cuba libre per day at 18:30h. The posada is having a great chef: The dinner was always perfect....
So, overall: for the rooms don't expect a 5 star hotel room. But the rooms are comfortable, clean, safe and AC'ed. For the food and the staff and the overall apperance of the posada: expect the maximum and your expectations will be met. You quickly feel like at home. And how can a vacation be better.

Room Tip: The posada is having 4 rooms of the same standard. All are having AC, separate bath room, telephone, WIFI, nice large beds for 2 and more persons. 3 rooms are in the main building. 1 room is in a separate building which is behind a little back yard right next to the main building (I haven't seen this building, but I would prefer a room in the main building). The posada itself is a family building with two floors. Frist floor: veranda, entrance and dining hall, open kitchen, little backyard, side building (containing one room and service rooms). Second floor: 3 rooms and staff room.

I cannot imagine a more ideal place to stay on vacation! From the moment you are welcomed by the lovely Alda and Andrea until you reluctantly leave the island, you will be relaxed, happy and well fed. Everyone involved in the operation is warm, friendly and professional, and the space is comfortable and clean. As there are only four rooms, which allows you to get to know the other guests and receive individual attention, but don't worry, you also have a lot of privacy. I am wary of all inclusive packages, but I was pleasantly surprised by just how great the food was. Breakfast was delicious, the boxed lunches far surpassed my expectations, and the dinners were truly gourmet. The biggest decisions are which beautiful island you wish to go to, and Alda even takes care of that! I can't imagine staying anywhere else and I'd love to be there right now! I miss Los Roques and the folks at La Rosaleda!

Room Tip: All the rooms seem great. We stayed in the one room which does not have an en suite bathroom, which is a little cheaper, but it has a private bath down the hall and was certainly not a problem!

Wonderful posada in Los Roques! La Rosaleda has a great staff, wonderful food, and the best cava!
The dormitory is simple but confortable, with good and silent air conditioned.
The staff is very kind! Alda and Joli do everything to guarantee that you'll have nothing to worry about.
I recommend La Rosaleda to everyone!

Our holiday to Los Roques has been one of the best by far and it was not just because of what this hidden gem has to offer beach enthusiasts of all sorts. The team at Posada La Rosaleda gave us the most warmest welcome we have ever received and did everything possible to make our stay so special. La Rosaleda is owned and run by Alda Domanti, who treats you from day one as if you were her good friend.

Her organization to get us there was absolutely superb. We stayed one night in Caracas before and after our holiday, which she organized, and everything ran very smoothly. She also informed us very well on what to bring and expectations e.g. method of payment on Los Roques / availability of exchanging currency etc…

Alda welcomed us as soon as we walked through the door and introduced us to her friendly team, Jairo and Yellie, as well as the other guests staying there. After settling into our room, we sat down to a delicious breakfast made by Jairo….and even then you find yourself saying ‘I never want to leave this place!’ Alda then explained the islands in detail and what they had to offer, and together we worked out our ‘island plan’ for the rest of the holiday. Alda organizes your trips each day, so the most work you do is pack your beach bag and walk over to the boat – snorkel equipment, beach towels, umbrella, beach chairs, lunch box & drinks are always provided…what else could you ask for??!!!!

A big mention has to go to the Chef (Jairo) and his Assistant (Yellie), who in our opinion prepare THE most delicious breakfast, lunch and 3-course dinner for you each day. We never had the same meal twice and in terms of presentation, hygiene, taste and cuisine it was really top class and was completely beyond our expectations. If you are a foodie – then book your stay at La Rosaleda, as it will completely satisfy all expectations and you will go home with a few cooking tips up your sleeves as well.

The rooms are nicely decorated in a Los Roques beach theme and are basic and very clean. We slept so well there – the mattress was extremely comfortable and the air conditioner was quiet and very effective. Alda and Yellie cleaned the rooms each day and provided fresh towels and linen. The common area is also very nicely decorated in a Los Roques/Venezuelan beach theme and there are plenty of options to sit and relax of an evening– 2 outdoor areas, big sofa and hammock in the living area etc…You are only sharing maximum with 4 other guests, which you see at breakfast and at dinner but the rest of the time, it’s you and the wonderful Los Roques.

I have to admit, as the plane took off and I looked out of the window and saw Alda madly waving us goodbye, I had more than a few tears in my eyes. She gets great pleasure out of making her home your home and does everything possible for you to enjoy Los Roques as much as she does. Because of this, our holiday in Los Roques and stay at La Rosaleda has been the most memorable and we will be definitely going back and take our family and friends with us.
