4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had an amazing experience watching turtles laying and hatchlings emerging. It is a bit of a hike to get to this place from Port of Spain but well worth the trip in turtle season. Off season it may be a worth a trip if you just want to get away from it all.

If you want to visit Grand Riviere to see the leather back turtles, which is the main draw of the tiny village, there just aren't a lot of options in lodgings, especially on the high end. Located on the northern coast three hours from Port of Spain, the beach has become one of the best places to observe the turtles.... More

the hotel is a far way from any major city centers and that's the appeal of it. the hotel is located on the beach and has a restaurant on the compound. Its a quaint hotel. Not many amenities but you dont venture to grande riviere for amenities. The room is basic, functional and has a rustic charm. The beach is... More

This is Paradise but that doesn't mean luxury. I don't think you could put a price on the position. Where else could you watch the Turtles nesting from your veranda ! Not to forget the 'soon to be famous' cheese and wonderful breads. All but 1 of the staff were such hosts, making us feel very welcome. Let's not forget... More

To begin with, upon entering, the receptionist was very helpful and courteous, so was the other employees at this hotel. My disappointment was actually the hotel itself. There is no private bathroom, there were four of us in the room, the room bathroom was half a door basically with no lock attached. Anyone could have opened it. Also the beds... More

Stayed two nights here, my husband and I wanted a short local getaway for our anniversary. The drive up to Grand Riviere should really be done during daylight. The roads are not perfect but manageable. The hotel itself stays dark at night because of the turtles that nest right infront on the beach. Só again plan to arrive in daylight.... More

On our recent 2 week trip, there were TWO Places that we wish we could have rescheduled to stay at longer. This place...and Pax Guest House (separate review). This place is quite challenging to drive to, but well worth the trip. Rooms are very nice, located directly on the beach. Restaurant is very nice and food was good. We were... More

I would have given a lesser rating on the day of my check-in, but the second day proved much better. We called the hotel at 7pm to book a room and were assured that it was available and they were open 'til late.' Disappointingly there was no one but the night watchman when we got there shortly before 11pm. He... More

As most people say this spot is one of a kind. I lived in Trinidad for a few years (In Port of Spain) and without this retreat I would have pulled my hair out. I would recommend of course going in the season when the Leatherback Turtles are nesting but honestly it is great any time of year. Piero is... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, despite being out of the main tourist season, our upstairs room was huge, spotlessly clean, quality bed, with large sitting out space with hypnotic views of sea and sky. We were the only guests and Piero and his staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great time despite not great... More
