“Lovely accomodation, lovely staff”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

We came to trinidad for first time for Carnival... the staff at the Savannah were extremely welcoming,particularly the girl on the reception desk, the accommodation was better than we expected and was more of a hotel than a guesthouse standard...the location was central which meant everything was virtually within walking distance.

My only qualm was the lack of facilities to sunbathe particularly as we were some distance away from the beach but luckily we were fully occupied over the carnival period...would defo come back and stay again!!!

2013, my first visit to Trinidad for carnival was a magical experience and Savannah Maison was icing on the cake!!!! Joan and staff were great in making sure we always felt at home during our stay and breakfast in the mornings was always wonderful!!!!

My partner and I had a great stay at Savvanah Maison for a few weeks during carnival season. The guest house is quite central, being a 5 minutes walk from the Savvanah and it is very secure. Once we learnt about the route taxis, it was also very cheap and easy to get into and around town; from the corner of the street / savvanah you can take a route taxi for only 4ttd. There was also always someone at the property, even at all hours of the morning when we returned from our late nights out.

The rooms are very clean and comfortable with new and very nice quality furnishings. The microwave is definitely a plus. (The double bed was a little small for us but that's because my boyfriend takes more than his fair share :) )

The wifi was great in the common dining area. The best thing about the place though would have to be the staff; friendly, warm, helpful and made us feel right at home. The daily breakfast was the nicest quality we've had on our journey so far through the Caribbean. (as long as you're willing to be adventurous and try the local foods.) . Ros, your breakfasts were awesome- loved the salt fish, sada roti and stuffed boiled eggs ;). You can also pre order lunch and dinner at the guest house which is also delicious.

The only thing about this area is that there isn't much in the way of restaurants and the local store closes very early, making it a challenge to find food if you're a late eater. There is more action closer to the Woodbrook side of the Savannah, however the trade off is peace,quiet and quality. One suggestion for the property would be a small vending machine with drinks and a few snacks- that would be really helpful.

Thanks for a fantastic stay and hopefully we can make it back again soon!

Greetings from Toronto, I stayed at the Savannah Maison in room 12 from Feb 6th - Feb 15th for Carnival. The location is central to everything, we felt safe at all times. The rooms were very clean and well sized for my group of 4. Having a homemade delicious breakfast every morning was so refreshing. Joan the owner was very pleasant, all the staff were so accomodating and friendly, I will definately stay here again.

Room Tip: note this location only has limited rooms, so book early in order to avoid disappointment

Let me start by saying, I hesitate to give this great review for fear I might not be able to book my room again for Carnival 2014!! 5 friends and I recently stayed at this beautifully maintained property during Carnival 2013. In the past four years, I've stayed at guest houses in the Belmont and St. Ann's area of POS and by far, the Savannah Maison has the most spacious rooms I've seen. We had two suites, each with kitchenettes and sizable bathrooms. The rooms are classically and simply decorated and each had a wardrobe and arm chairs. One room also had a kitchen table - which served as costume prep central. Air conditioning, great water pressure and wifi - must haves! One of the most useful features were the multitude of mirrors in each room. Each room had three - which is very helpful when 3 or 4 people (especially all women!) are staying in one room together. All amenities on the property are modern, it goes without saying rooms are very clean, and the included breakfast is excellent - a lifesaver even after those long carnival nights (mornings?!). The staff are extremely friendly and helpful; really lovely people all-around, from the owner to the house staff. There were minor issues with internet connectivity and water service during our stay - both one-off occurrences I'm sure - and in the Caribbean, this is to be expected. The location is very secure (high gates, buzz in and out) and walkable from the Savannah. For price, space (a huge need during carnival when you're traveling with a ton of stuff and large costumes) and service, this is really very difficult to beat. I'll be back for 2014!

Room Tip: Rooms on the bottom floor seemed to have the best wifi service!

I stayed at the Savannah Maison with a few of my friends for Carnival and it was a great experience. We had home cooked breakfast meals every morning. The rooms included free wi-fi. Really spacious rooms and accommodations. What we appreciated most was the staff! Their warm friendly faces wished us a good morning every day and welcomed us home in the evenings. The location is right off the Savannah so it was easy to get to all the fetes in the area and walk home in the evenings after Monday and Tuesday Mas.
