El terreno está bellamente decorada por artistas locales; las habitaciones son muy agradables, con una gran hamaca en el porche para relajarse y disfrutar de un buen libro. Nos alojamos por dos noches, para ponerse al día con algo de descanso en un viaje en moto por Sudamérica. Cogimos el plan de comidas (desayuno + cena): el menú del desayuno era muy variado, y la cena, aunque sólo una opción por noche, estaba delicioso y bien presentado. (se tomaron el tiempo para preparar platos vegetarianas para mí, y yo tenía buenas opciones en el desayuno, así que es algo raro en Venezuela, donde normalmente si dices que eres vegetariano ofrece pollo).
Lo único malo que se me ocurre es que la Posada está relativamente cerca del club local de baile y era bastante ruidoso el sábado por la noche después de la medianoche, pero afortunadamente no duró mucho.
