If you're looking for a luxury hotel with all the conveniences, this is not the hotel for you. Surfside provides inexpensive accommodation in a convenient location. This hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the airport, surrounded by good eating possibilities, and minutes away from some serious beaches. The accommodation is minimalist, but functional, and clean. Crockery and cutlery is... More

Been here many times but only because everywhere else was booked. In need of serious upgrade. No money has been spent on this place for years. Pool picture desceptive. Nothing more than a shallow paddling pool..The second picture of the pool with the blowhole is not Surf Side.

I stayed at Surf Side Hotel in February over the Carnival weekend. I must say the location was excellent since it was close to all the eating places. They had a pool which my daughter enjoyed to the fullest. They had a car park which we used since we carried our car. I must say the weekend finish too quickly

My family and I stayed at Surfside - the "newer" section at back - in August 2014. We previously stayed in August 2012. I must say the standards have fallen. On the plus side the place was newly/nicely painted, the staff were generally friendly and the linens clean. The location of course is great as it's near to the beaches... More

The reception was not particulary friendly but I am from Trinidad so I guess I am accustomed? The 'groundskeeper' was extremely nice and helpful. The room (upstairs) was great. Big enough...clean looking, kitchen was roomy and had everything (well except for matches ..we had to go ask for that), the bathroom was roomy and clean as well. The Room was... More

I stayed here for easter weekend and it was hell. First when we got there,it was a group of us and they split us up in different buildings. The room I was staying in was crap! 1 bed, the kitchen was in another room, bathroom was small and cramped. There's a switch that needs to be turned on for hot... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Surf Side Hotel for 3 nights. We ignored the reviews and took our chances. The rooms are basic, nothing fancy. The room consisted of the bedroom/sitting area, bathroom and kitchen. It was clean and close to everything. For the price we were paying and the fact it was just a place to sleep,... More

I called the hotel way in advance to make reservation. I was told that I will be in RM # 27 right above the office. However when I got there I was given a room on the other side, I had to share a two bed apt with my husband, two kids and my cousin. There was no privacy. No... More
