Tucupita Hotel beside river: Saxxi Hotel

Nos intentaron Robar. Someone attempted to rob us at the hotel. At 3 am, someone opened the door to our room. They had a key because there was no sound until a big noise woke us up: We were saved because we had put the little chain to lock the door before go to bed. That save us.
Then we call to receptión. The guard was asleep. We suspect that the boy that check us before at 7am was involved.

Beside that, the restaurant of saxxi hotel is very good. A venezuelan-spanish chef is on charge.

Nice trip.

Is a one night stand motel.

Orinoco Delta Lodge: Great experiance

We stayed here as a part of an Orinoco/Canaima trip.

About a 2 hour boat ride up the Delta from the small airport. The campamento is perfectly located on the edge of the river. About 30 or so small wooden cabins which take take you straight back to nature. The rooms are 'open', the windows covered by a mesh to keep the mosquitos out and a palm covered roof. At night you lay on the bed with the sounds of the jungle outside and the twinkling lights of the fireflies in the trees.

Cabins have 2 single beds and own toilet and shower. Electricity goes off around 11pm but you are given candles, you should also take a torch just in case.

The paths to the main area are lit with flamed torches at night time. During the day you can spot all sorts of wildlife around the camp, keep your eyes open. The sun will most likely wake you up in the morning if it does stroll down to the reception area and watch it come up over the trees, the steam rising from the river and the locals over in their canoes starting their day.

From this lodge they will take on trips around the Delta including a short trek in the jungle wearing wellies (check yours doesn't have a hole it them, mine did!), pirana fishing and visits to the local Warao Tribe.

Food was good and drinks reasonably priced. The lodge also houses a school, teaching the children from the local tribes. Great experiance, sad it was only one night though!

hotel saxxi owned by a greek immigrant: possibly the best hotel in town.. a little bit out

Possibly the nicest place to stay with unfriendly staff and a restaurant that is never open and owned by a greek immigrant who is disliked by everyone in town except his fellow levantines between whom they seem to own everything except the supermarkets and restaurant owned by the chinese.
it has a run down look to it, it has certainly seen better days. Since the owner treats the staff that badly, I am told they find no reason to up keep the hotel. A pool which is very noisy during weekends and the hotel backs into the river.

air conditioned. very quiet away from the town. nice swimming pool. river at your back yard, eventhough you could ignore the guard with the gun.
40 000 bolivares, about 16 usd per night per room
