I first heard about this place on radio during Carnival 2015 when they were advertising for their Fete. I looked them up on Facebook and liked the pics I saw. Couple months later I messaged them on FB for prices and then was told to contact them on their website or call to make a booking. I submitted a request... More

Firstly, let me start off by saying that I paid for two nights, but was so disappointed that I only stayed five hours, from 2pm to 7pm. When I arrived at the gate, the security didn't even look up, but opened the gate. I could've been Jack the Ripper for all she knew. I got to reception; and for the... More

Do not visit this terrible "resort". I have nothing good or even acceptable to report about this hotel and genuinely don't believe the good reviews. (for example the hammocks being a good idea...there are around 20 rammed in next to each other and you can't see the sea because of the horrible plastic cover over the area). We arrived around...

Great food, friendly and courteous staff. The ocean view room was well appointed although the bathroom was on the small side, but, then again, the idea is to be out of the room for the most part. Two of the three pools were operational ( the third being under repairs ) and the sprawling estate was beautiful to walk and... More

The Food was great, staff was friendly. However, the rooms could have been more modern. We stayed in an Ocean view that was obstructed by the front of the hotel. This is the most expensive room there, but I don't think it was worth it. The hotel could be much better with some minor repairs. The room didn't impress me.... More

Stayed at the playa del este for 2 nights, went for a retreat with my church. Let me start of by saying that my wife and I had a great time, the food was good as well. Customer service great. However, the place needs serious updating. Though the room was clean, it was very low on quality. Would I go... More

A group of friends got together for a relaxing weekend of fellowship at this hotel, spa, restaurant. It's a couple of hours from Port of Spain along the typical narrow winding Trinidad road. Definitely was worth it to hire a driver and van for the trip for part of the group. The price for our rooms included three meals a... More

Though spendier there only one night we really enjoyed it and had a warm welcome. Reception managed to arrange all our last minute requests. The view to the beach is amazing. Directly from our balcony we could watch a group of pelikans fishing in the morning. During turtle season you can simple drive to Nature Seekers at Matura Beach to... More

I would like to start off by saying that this place has the friendliest staff I have ever met. They are warm, friendly and attentive to all needs. All meals provided (breakfast, lunch and dinner) was on time, of a wide variety and also tasted excellent. Meals are also halal. Playa del Este provides fun for all. We were a... More
