This hotel was booked an hour before check in. It's advisable to book directly from the website as opposed to a travel site because there are bonus points for American Airlines and other discounts that you can receive. Unfortunately I found this out after the fact :( The room was quite nice and spacious with a sitting area to one...

Spent a night here, cost me somewhere around $1200-1300, only a suite was available last minute. Beautiful clean suite, very roomy with kitchenette and balcony. The bedroom decor was boring and ordinary and so was the complimentary breakfast which was basic. I won't recommend for a short solo stay.

Overall the hotel is fine but nothing special. Pictures make it look better than it is and their balcony suites state "Overlooking the Queen’s Park Savannah"...which they do not, we had a view of an empty lot and was above a noisy street. Luckily we were there for only 1 night. One of their restaurants wasn't open and other closed...

I have stayed at Kapok before when I used to live in Trinidad. I have also recommended it over the years to others. I used to like this hotel so I booked it for a long weekend trip. I had the Marriott in mind but based on the rates for that particular weekend, it came down to the Hilton or...

Enjoyed my stay. Staff really nice, breakfast great, ample. Pool and exercise room great. 2 restaurants for dinner. I prefer the one downstairs. 8th floor more like a Chinese restaurant. Difficult to order for 1 - too much food. Both had tasty food. 2nd floor has laundry plus microwave, water cooler, ice machine. Each room has free ear plugs -...

My wife and I had our wedding reception here in March at Tiki Village and also spent the night in the hotel. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and warm and our overall satay exceptional. Thank you Kapok.

Returning for another week in Trinidad for leisure stay. Warm and efficient staff at the front desk- Rondell, Nickesha, Ayrice ensured a seamless check- in while also allowing a much appreciated earlier check-in as the room was available for the same. I received a call from the front desk within 4 hours of my check-in to confirm my satisfaction and...

Been to this hotel countless times and I still have no complaints. Simply amazing and comfortable. Mark who works there is exceptional. Good food and comfy bed. I'll always choose Kapok over any other hotel.

I spent 3 days at this hotel. The hotel is close to the Botanical Garden, Zoo and the big Queens Park Savannah. I came in a bit early for check-in and was given an complimentary upgrade by Mr. Rondell because my assigned room was not ready. The room was a bit dated but was keep in a cleaned good condition....

“For more comfort, suggest selecting a larger room than the standard/regular queen-size room as the room quality dramatically improves.”

“Rooms facing the street are a bit loud when traffic is at its peak, but it was not unreasonable. AC is effective, but a bit noisy.”
