My wife and I had a pleasant Easter weekend stay at Cara Suites for the umpteenth time. As usual- very good rooms, food and customer service. The weekend was extremely hot outdoors and I remember scampering to get indoors from the parking lot. Then it suddenly dawned on me how 'evacuation-ready' the property really is. I imagined having to get...

Davina & the crew looked after around 15 coaches who stayed & ate at the Cara Suites at the end of March 2017. Hassel & Verlier are great front of house staff who make sure the guests have everything they need; Kirby was great when it came to looking after us in the dining room & Shawn can recommend both...

We travelled from the UK to deliver a coaching course at the aquatics centre in Couva, and Cara Suites was by fair the best option of hotel. Not only were the whole course of 21 coaches accommodated there, but the T&T and Venezuelan women's football teams were there too. Away from the hustle and bustle of Port of Spain, this...

The hotel is very clean, staff are extremely accomodating. Hotel restaurant is expensive, with dinner costing around $40 USD with one plate of food and two soft drinks. The hotel is no where near any town center or any restaurants. Great for a business visit but if I were on vacation I'd probably choose a different place.

If you've got business in the Point Lisas area, this is about 15 minutes away. Unfortunately, it's not a business class hotel. Original part of hotel looks like something from the 60's, and newer buildings appear to be from the 80's. Front desk staff lack friendliness and professionalism, restaurant staff were attentive and helpful. Restaurant food was hit or miss...

My meeting to arrange the dinner evening left me full of expectations for the actual night of our church event.

To start with, there isn't much of a choice in hotels in the southern part of Trinidad. I chose to stay here for a week, as this appeared to be the best in the lot.

Has become the number one choice to stay in Trinidad. Closest to Point Lisas and Petrotrin. Food is good, ample grounds allow for walking in safe environment. On this trip I got a lemon room, I complained and was very promptly accommodated in the usual good room in the new building.

This is advertised as a hotel & conference centre. I received a confirmation letter to say I had been reserved an executive room with OCEAN view.
