The Maracaibo Cumberland hotel offers good facilities, excellent service, and a place to rest from the heat in Marabino. Very good room-service, good food and the breakfast was very tasty, a great way to start the day with a delicious meal in a cozy atmosphere.
After many years without traveling abroad, we were able to go to Venezuela for 20 days, Maracaibo specifically. We had the opportunity to spend 5 days in this magnificent 5 star hotel, upon entering reception is very impressive and wide, as in all hotels the reception staff are very helpful and friendly. We left our bags we saw a beautiful room, with all services required for a hotel of this category. Overall a very good hotel but it has some details that leave a bit to be desired, I guess that's due to the maravinos and the situation in the country. For example: one of the elevators did not work during the five days we stayed, it was the elevator closest to our room so we had a long walk down the hall to take the steps which were very, very dirty (as not many people used them). The self-service restaurant had no bottled water, which I missed so much, well, it had water but with gas. The disco fun and the drinks were very cheap compared with Spain. The service staff was excellent and very friendly to us. I personally found it a little expensive for what was offered, were in other 4 star hotels superior to Maruma at half the price. Be sure to visit the casino, IMPRESONA. The hotel is just fine. Nothing more.

I found a new option in Maracaibo during my stay. This hotel has been running for 5 years and was constructed on what is considered the area of the city in expansion, far to the north in the Brisas del Norte sector. It has several advantages, one of which is the proximity with the Sambil Mall, the largest, and most modern in the city of Zulia.
The hotel has large rooms, comfortable beds, and large windows. It also has a swimming pool, conference room, and dining room where a Zulia style breakfast is served: mandocas. pastries, buns, mini plantains etc. During my visit I saw that the hotel is often used by foreign tourists in transit. The manager told me that Colombians make their trip to Isla Margarita through here, and use the hotel for the last stop of the trip to take advantage and get to know this city. When entering the rooms, you'll quickly realize why the hotel is called Brisas del Norte, the wind is strong and strikes against the glass of the windows like a movie.
The thing that best represents the Zulianidad is Lake Maracaibo, which is held in veneration by the locals. There is a hotel at Milagro Avenue area north of the lake that allows the view of the huge lake surrounding Maracaibo. The Hotel boardwalk is one of the oldest structures in the capital of Zulia, which has been renewed over the years. It has rooms to suit any client: small for intimacy or large for comfort, an indoor pool, fitness center and a small bar in the lobby, but it's most significant value lies in the revolving restaurant that adorns the top floor of the building. A beautiful space, with a great food menu, and the view of the city and its lake in a 360 °. You can see in the photos and the video how divine a romantic dinner in this restaurant can be.
Maracaibo is a pretty city and a bit touristy, so it is hard to find cheap hotels. The Aquarium is in the Bella Vista, a neighborhood with some houses and corporate offices. The price is around 15 euros for a room with air conditioning (a must in Maracaibo), TV and refrigerator. The outside appearance is not very good, and you can even rent rooms by the hour, but it is very clean and the 2 ladies that attend you are very friendly
The Crowne Plaza Hotel Maruma Hotel & Casino is a great place that is in the city of Maracaibo, in Venezuela's Zulia province. No doubt you will have the best facilities in town, and it also has a great staff that is very attentive and responsive.
