Not a luxury hotel but it's quiet and relaxing and in walking distance to the best beach and night life. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms need some updating but it's still a great place to stay on a budget and the best curry crab and dumpling ever!!!!

Service was good, however this is one of the dirtiest places I've ever been to. I would never stay here again and I would never recommend it to anyone. The pool area is the worst, the tiles on the floor around the pool very nasty I didn't even want my feet to touch the floor, worst yet I refused to...

We spent 7 nights, clearly the place is in need of some upgrading but considering the price the stay was like staying at your old grandmother's house. It was a lot quieter than i expected and the staff was very very friendly. Even the owner was chatty and relaxed with you.We arrived 4 hours after our checking in time and...

Checked in yesterday. This was a last minute booking as my usual spot for short stays in Tobago was fully booked. I was silly for not checking the reviews but for the rate i assumed that it would be of a certain minimal standard. Check in was delayed as my husband and i stood at an empty front desk for...

I read the other reviews before I came, and honestly you always see good and bad reviews for all places with often very petty things bringing down the views. Looking at this place I expected some minor issues because let's face it your not paying top dollar. You do get some bonuses such as being 5 minutes walk from the...

WORST WORST WORST. This hotel... IS DISAPPOINTING!. A large group of friends and I along with 2 babies went to this hotel. The morning of the day we were supposed to arrive at the hotel, the receptionist called us reminding us about our booking. I said yes we will be there. We traveled by ferry from Trinidad to Tobago and...

Visited this hotel with a friend in July and we just wasn't that impressed. We have to wait about 15-20 minutes for staff to come to the front desk and take us to our room. We decided that the room was okay but as soon as rain began falling heavily the following day it started leaking in the kitchen area.The...

This hotel fell far below my expectation. My flight was delayed and despite me confirming my arrival at the hotel earlier in the day the reception was closed upon my arrival which was after midnight. It took two hours to get onto someone to let me in a room. I would not recommend this hotel.

Spent three days at this "so called" hotel. Pros: Great locations: walking distance to the airport, beaches and nightlife. Cons: The room was very dated. The bed was uncomfortable and the sheets were dirty and smelly. There was no warm water in the bathroom. There was no soap provided in the bathroom to wash hands. There was a small fridge...

Paid a visit to the hotel with family in February 2015 and was rather disappointed. At one time this hotel was something to talk about. Now, maintenance has fallen down so that everywhere there are signs of deterioration if not dilapidation. A visit to the pool found it closed. Furniture and furnishings are somewhat decrepit. You better bring your own...
