Acajou is a small, eco-friendly, family-run hotel situated on Trinidad's beautiful and dramatic northern coast in a little fishing village of Grande Riviere. Our hotel, a collection of traditional cottages, is nestled between the beach, a crystal-clear river, and lush rainforest-covered mountains. With a décor that boasts Indonesian, Polynesian and Japanese architecture, our cottages offer a feeling of serenity. We are perfect for a staycation or family getaway in Trinidad. A group of friends or a family of four can anticipate comfortable accommodation as our rooms are outfitted with a king-size bed and a convertible sofa bed. One of our cottages has a sleeping loft with two single beds. After lounging in tranquillity, visitors can select delicious meal options from our in-house restaurant menu. We offer our guests confidence in knowing they consume locally grown vegetables and fruits harvested from our garden or local farmers.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Acajou's individual wood cabins, with ceiling fan and mosquito nets (which we didn't have to use...), complete with lush property and many unknown birds, felt like we were on a safari in Africa. Everything was in good repair, however the wifi only seems to work well in front of the office. Breakfast was provided and it was ample and tasty, and cooked to order. They pre-set the number of tables based on the number of guests, so the open air dining room always felt welcoming. It is not exactly on the beach, it is more beach-adjacent. Oddly, the trail to the beach required some scrambling over abandoned and vacant structures, and was often flooded, so the access could have been much improved. I realize that the vacant structures may be owned by others, but they do detract from the location. We were lucky to be there as the leatherback turtles started their spring egg laying. When turtles are spotted at night, you will be advised, if you have already indicated an interest, and you will be directed to a tour group. In our case, we were already on the beach and one of the tour guides searched us out, having talked to us earlier that evening. While the grounds are lush, I personally felt that more planting could be done, if only to better cover up the chain link fence along the river which is viewed directly from the dining area. The road along the coast is not great, and if you continue further to Matelot, you can see where it has been washed out in numerous locations and only patch-work repairs have been completed. So we made sure not to delay on the patched areas, as they did not appear to be particularly stable. If you continue to Matelot, you may be lucky to have a meal prepared by Michael at Maja Moon, almost at the end of the road. Despite the road conditions, it is worth the trip to try out his cooking.

My partner and I stayed for one night as part of a drive up the North Coast of Trinidad. The hotel grounds are beautiful and rustic. We were able to reserve our night via telephone the same day. The staff was nice and friendly. The dinner was very good as well as breakfast. Breakfast was included in our rate and it was a lot of food with coffee/tea. The rooms are like small bungalows, we stayed in one where we could see the beach and the river. The beach waves were rough but beautiful to see. The river ends near by into the ocean. There are walks at night where you can see the turtles nesting if you are lucky. Overall, it was a quiet and relaxing stay. Would definitely recommend.

I was the only guest in the hotel (in town, in fact) for a couple of very wet days in November. The electricity cables went down under a falling tree in the middle of the night but power was back within a day. But no electricity also meant no water and no internet….. There were emergency solar batteries so we weren’t in the dark and the kitchen kept going ! I was more concerned by the four very dodgy spots on the drive there where more than half the width of the road had disappeared and the rest looked as it it was about to go the same way and wouldn’t survive the 50mm+ of rain we had … well one had been repaired (even if only with temporary metal plates over the earth) and the other three were getting serious attention when I drove out two days later. Impressive. (Farther down the coast a stretch of beach road had been totally washed away so I couldn’t get to my next planned destination but had to return to PoS). Hotel food was excellent; WiFi almost nonexistent in room or restaurant but OK at reception. Super setting with view over beach and river from the large patio, great hammock …. but my aim of going on local walks was thwarted by the weather. Room itself ….. large, fan but no airco, good shower, comfortable bed with hard pillows, generous mosquito netting. Fridge. Value for money not so good but you are coming to a unique location … I wouldn’t really recommend a visit in the wet season (interesting though it was) but a lovely place to go see the turtles and hike in the dry season, if you’re comfortable sleeping without airco. I drove there with a compact 2WD but would recommend 4WD and/or higher wheelbase SUV for worried drivers if you can afford it.

Wonderful relaxed little private huts for 2. Very simple but stylish. Nice restaurant. Close to the beach. Security guard every night No air conditioning but a fan. Great location for turtle expeditions. They coordinated our night safari with the local guides. Small city with only few shops open.

This is an ideal getaway for nature lovers, nestled on the river bank with the ocean view as well. I proposed to fiance here and the staff was very helpful and went along with the plan and helped staged the entire room! Would definitely return. Would recommend walking with Bug Spray.

The view, the cabins, the food! All excellent. I would definitely recommend to couples and families looking for a wonderful, relaxing, unplugged, getaway from it all. There is turtle watching, hikes, and lots of other activities. You will be eating so good too with tasty, healthy, freshly prepared local and international favourites.
