“Stay here and make your friends jealous!” My wife and I stayed at Margarita Tropical Villa 3 weeks ago, and we would go back tomorrow if we could.
We went to Margarita Island because we wanted to go somewhere no one we knew had been before. Having stayed at a caribbean all-inclusive the year before, we also wanted stay where we could be independent and plan our own vacation without feeling like we're staying at Disneyland. We couldn't have asked for more from Margarita Tropical Villa.
Our room was poolside with a comfortable kingsize bed, powerful air conditioning, and one of the better caribbean showers we have experienced. There is a large communal fridge in the kitchen area, but our room had a mini fridge large enough to store everything we needed for the week we were there.
The villa is a 5 minute walk to the beach or a $4 dollar cab ride. The Villa is at the south side of the beach where there is an excellent tourist market. We bought beach towels for $6, rented beach chairs for $3, and no beer cost more than $1.25.
Dan and Kira were very kind and helpful in making our stay as enjoyable as possible. From delicious breakfast every morning, to recommending restaurants in the evening, to introducing us to Karina, our taxi driver and friend for the week, it wouldn't have been the glorious vacation that it was without them.
It was the beginning of low season, as we stayed there just after Easter, and we felt as if we had the place to ourself, our own island home. Hopefully, one day, we'll go home again.
