I visited this hotel over the Easter Weekend 2008 as I could not leave Trinidad to visit Tobago which was my first choice destination.
As I entered the hotel the ambience was lovely and the exterior seemed to match the hype posted on the website (ultimate rustic elegance) that's where the fun ended.
The check in process was slower than normal because the credit machine was not working properly and kept redialing.
While waiting on that I had to wait further as the receptionist needed to respond to a text that she had just gotten while i was still standing there.
Then I had to wait on the porter to come get my bags.
On to the room.
The rooms were far from elegant and definitley basic .There was a mould colony growing on the walls and linens were dingy.
The pool was in desperate need of a cleaning and was far from appealing. I could see stuff floating in the water (wrappers , etc)
This was the horror of all horrors the dinner was boufet style and the choices were turkey/ fish, Lentil peas, rice, mashed potatoes, salad.
Definitely the worst boufet I had ever seen, and it tasted as bad as it looked. I went to sleep hungry and it cost me 400 TT dollars for that meal.
Needles to say I wont be returning to this hotel, and to all visitors to Trinidad please dont go here, our twin island republic has many more beautiful places ,and if you do go here please dont judge us by this hotel, a short trip to toabgo would reveal what paradise really is.
