Beautiful posada with big, clean A/C rooms. Airport transfer available (we paid $15 one way, 2p). Hosts are not unfriendly, but do not seema to enjoy running the posada much. Information requests (about city recommendations, laundry facilities, breakfast availability etc) are anwered very briefly. Do not recommend dinner, better go to el mirador (riverside restaurant) for delicious outdoor dining with super friendly staff and amazing prices.

Martin & Yourleni User Profile

Run by the owners Martin Haars and his wife Yourleni.

Martin is a German, who learned hotel management at the Schlosshotel Grünwald in Munich. He worked at the Mainz Hilton hotel as night manager and operations analyst for four years.

Feeling attracted to Venezuela during his travels trough Latin America, he arrived in 1993.

Since then he has been dedicated to tourism in the state of Bolivar, first with a tour agency and as a tour operator on the River Caura.

Yourleni, a native of Ciudad Bolivar, got her college degree in tourism management in 1995. She has been dedicated to this area since then, working with Martin in the agency and in the Jungle of the Caura River

Both opened Posada Don Carlos in 2004 and with their team, offer excellent service and strive to attend all their guest´s needs.

The guesthouse received its name in honour of Martin´s father, Don Karl-Heinz Haars, whose support was essential to accomplish the project of this hostel.
