We arrived at this off the beaten path boutique hotel after long flights from Medford, Oregon to Trinidad, to find our room wasn't ready. GM Christine immediately changed our room to one that was ready and she brought us two very welcome cold beers, as we settled in for our 2 night stay. Our room was quiet and well appointed with WiFi, TV, fridge and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was OK, but lacked the usual amenities expected these days: a hairdryer, nice soap and fluffy towels. Breakfast is included and is served in a first floor dining area. It's a combination of a light buffet, with made to order egg dishes. The room becomes a wonderful French restaurant at night. Zazou Bistro, opened mid January, is good for a special treat night.
The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to few restaurants. You can walk to downtown Port of Spain, if you are up to a busy road that doesn't always have sidewalks to give you a chance to avoid being run over by the cars speeding by!
We had one day to explore before heading to Tobago. The walking directions we were given by the front desk were not accurate to the various points of interest where we were headed. We managed to find our destinations by asking locals for directions. The hotel should have a better map of their own with accurate location of the hotel to town and points of interest for guests.
We spent some time at the museum, which has a very interesting history of the country and Port of Spain. There was also an exhibit by a Trini artist, whom we met on our way out. We had a very interesting conversation with him!
Lunch was at a small shopping area in the heart of POS to avoid a downpour! Nothing special, but fun to eat with the locals on their lunch breaks.
