Hi All, Seen lots of reviews for Margarita, but not much info about the trips from the hotels... Can any body enlighten me on what sorts of things there are , and if you can remember how much roughly.... I know trip prices will vary depending on what hotel you stay at , but its just as a guide... If it is any help i'm stayin @ hesperia Playa El agua... Many thanks for any info guys (& girls !) ....
I stayed there roughly about 5 years ago, I had one of the apt. style Bungalow rooms that consisted of a one bed/one bath to stay in. It has A/C and a TV as well. We had a smaller more private pool right in front of our Bungalow and there is the larger one just a few ways down. The breakfast buffet was pretty good but the one we stayed in had a kitchenette so I brought stuff to cook with while we were there for a week. They also have a small stove included too, so I made deserts and all.
It's not even a 5 minute walk to Playa El Agua from Hesperia and if your not so much up to just staying at the pools there, the beach is very nice and lots of shops and internet places to go to.
Price wise I can't remember, a friend of our booked at two places and let us have this one as a gift. You do have to wear a bracelet while you stay here since it will allow the guards to know that you are staying at their hotel and it will allow you easy access in and out as you please.
Take care ~
ps. here is an interesting article to read about what the Hotels in Margarita are now offering. You can visit several of the Hotels and pay for
a Day's pass with meal and drinks included.
It was in their newspaper in spanish online at Sol de margarita a few days ago... here it is in English for you:

People who decide to not stay over night at anyone of these hotels can still have access to their hotels amenities, thanks to these new packages designed to accommodate and concentrate on these full day passes.
