We booked this hotel as it was everything we needed as we were visiting family in Trinidad & San Fernando is central. We particularly liked the fact that there was a pool where we could relax & it was one of the main reasons for booking this Hotel. We were extremely disappointed to be told just the day before our...

While one of the few hotels in San Fernando, it is tired and needs a lot of maintenance. WiFi did not work and no one seemed to care. Rooms are low-end basic. It is clean though. The showers had only Luke warm water and the toilets hard to flush.

This hotel isn't that bad but it can be a lot better. The grounds are in need of improvement and the rooms could do with a little updating. The service is lukewarm, where some staff are nice, more so the waitresses and some it's like flipping a coin, you never know what you'll get, the front desk staff. The ribs... More

The hotel bedrooms are basic with old free standing furniture but comfortable. A nice little pool surrounded by garden. The staff are very friendly. There is security on hand at night and... More

This is an expat hotel of choice. People with much more experience than me choose this hotel repeatedly. That is due to the fact that there is no quality competition to speak of in the port area. Service is sub standard and slow but very, very friendly. HOWEVER the room was clean, AC worked, WIFI was usable and even choice... More

I spent my wedding weekend there and it was just amazing... my bridesmaids were able to come in and get dressed the day of the wedding and my husband joined me the night after our wedding. The staff were warm and welcoming. I felt so comfortable and relaxed for my entire stay there including my wedding day. They are just... More

I recently stayed at the Royal with my family. Our room was basic but clean and tidy with ample space and storage for the family. We had a balcony which over looked the pool and garden area. The room also had aircon. The rooms could do with a bit of maintenance i.e. there was a hole in the bathroom where... More

In December 2014 I stayed at the Royal Hotel Trinidad‏ on recommendation from a friend who lives nearby, thankfully I was traveling on my own as this ‘hotel’ would have lost me major brownie points from the missus! At first glance you see the large rooms, fridge, big shower, TV, Swimming pool, and think “Ok this is nice!” but that... More

Homely atmosphere in the heart of the city. Very good local cuisine. Excellent service. Our first choice for dinner meetings/conferences. The staff are always willing to go the extra mile. The rates are very good too. Recommended
