“2 Words - Total Dump”
Reviewed 31 May 2008

Air conditioner - horrible
Bed - Horrible
Pillows - Horrible (hard and lumpy)
2 people - given 1 towel
Restaurant - ok, but found a nice hair in my salad
1 person walked in and out of the restaurant in his boxers and tank top twice while we were having hair salad
Quoted $188 US Dollars when checking in... American Express shows a charge for $205 US Dollars.

At $205, this is a complete rip-off for the quality and service of the hotel.

Only good pt - free shuttle back and forth from Airport to Hotel...but don't expect friendly service early in the morning.

There is a Holiday Inn Express just down the street...check it out instead.

This hotel is a filthy hovel, AC either does not work or you get no remote, My company puts me here once a month and it never changes. We get bitten by bed bugs everytime, order a Gin & Tonic and they rip you off by serving water & tonic, The drinks are cheaper in the holiday Inn, My advice stay well away

We were at this hotel due to a cancelled flight of the world's worst airline, Aeropostal. The service was incredibly unfriendly. Rooms were stinking. A/C didn't work. Breakfast was inedible.

In sum, avoid at any rate.

My partner and I had a very good stay. The shuttle service was on time and security on the premises was impressive unlike many other hotels in Trinidad. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were quite impressed that the hotel had a bar with cocktails which complemented their wide selection of food. I was very satisfied with my overall stay. The only downfall was that there was no beaches close by. However they are an airport hotel with very good standards and would rate them much higher that any of the other hotel in the surroundings.

I have stayed in this hotel number of times, because another option is Bel Air, which is disaster. If you have time, it's better to go Marriot or Crowne Plaza which are about 30 minutes from airport.

In 2006 room rate what I got has been USD225 plus some taxes alltogether around 250, robbery of 2 star hotel. I thought they are cheating the foreigner, told my wife (Trinidadian) to do the booking, but rate was same. Now they also charge USD 5 a trip for the airport shuttle.

Hotel is quite new and fulfill 2 star requirement, but everything else is poor. Obviously none of the personnel or management has never been in real hotel and dont have any idea what service should be.

- food is quite bad and service poor, even every visit the restaurant has been empty, they dont even have matches or lighter in bar
- every time I have to ask front desk about the bill and then she asks: Ooh, do you need an receipt? and then write you little receipt without any breakdown, not to mention any that there is no VAT number which is charged anyway
- one time they forgot to make an wake-up call, we almost missed the flight
- 9:30 PM somebody decided to start an construction work with jackhammer
- one room had very noisy ac and no remote control it

With a rate around 80 bucks and professional staff/management this could be an OK hotel.

My husband and I were forced to overnight in Trinidad due to a flight delay, after making a big fuss about going to a hotel in Port Of Spain we were put up at the this hotel by the Airline.

I must say that on our arrival there we were quite impressed, the staff was friendly and helpful even dealing with our absolute hunger by allowing the restaurant to stay open for an extra three quarts of an hour for us to eat. The room was clean, and nicely decorated and comfortable.

It was very convenient as in proximity to the airport, that was great since we did not have to leave until about five minutes before our check in time - yea, their that close!!

Good Food, Friendly Service, Convenient, overall thumbs Up!!!

See you guys again, this time deliberate!
