If is difficult to find great Hotels in Trinidad, is more difficult to find them in far places like Grande Riviere. So don't expect a luxury hotel. But once that is said, the cottages are very comfortable, the view is nice (not ocean view really, but nice garden view with the ocean at the back). The staff is really nice.... More

this hotel is nestled in well kept grounds a couple hundred metres from the beach. There is a wide variety of plants and trees that surround these wooden cabins that gives the feeling of really being out in the wild. Although there were not all of the creature comforts one would expect from the usual hotel experience, this wasn't your... More

My family & I have stayed at Acajou twice. The setting, the staff & the atmosphere are all....to die for...as they say. However, we had an issue with the fact that kids 5 years and older are charged full adult price. As far as I know. this is not industry standard. They was no negotiating and we felt that there...

My boyfriend and I stayed here in May and absolutely loved the property. The staff were warm, friendly, inviting and helpful. The cabins were beautifully appointed, open, airy and very clean. The bathroom has a large tiled walk in shower with opening walls and windows. Great mix of a Polynesian island style. The canopy bed was a great touch with... More

There is a stillness in the Grand Riviere that is so inviting. The views on the drive into the town are spectacular . Once you arrive,the Acajou provides an almost perfect base for your turtle nesting experience. This lovely, romantic hotel is comprised of a set of well equipped wooden eco-cottages with hot showers, good bedding, decks with hammocks, and... More

We capped off our exploration of Tobago, then Trinidad with a stay here. Glad we did not find it sooner, or we would have never left, an it gave us our only great impression of Trinidad. (Tobago was spectacular tho) this area, and hotel is very different from the rest of Trinidad, partly because of its isolation. its truly beautiful... More

The Acajou is located in the village of Grande Riviere, which the Rough Guide describes as 'idyllic'. I would say it is 'potentially idyllic', but it is certainly tolerable for a few days to go up and see the Leatherback Turtles. The hotel itself is a group of pretty decent cottages or cabanas, each of which seems to have a... More

Humn...I actually enjoyed the long drive. The cottage architecture was quite nice and the kids and I made good use of the hammock. Areas for improvement: more citronella candles made available. Trinidad is an exceedingly hot place and they should consider installing a/c in the cottage. The heat was unpleasant and the fans were ineffective. Breakfast was the only meal... More
