The turtle watching experience - which is why you would go to Mt Plasir is quite simply AMAZING. The rooms are very spacious and clean; great views with the sound of the surf crashing in on you; the staff very helpful; food good; do not try to go on the beach on your own at night; the drive very looong...

On the beach, I mean ON THE BEACH - sometimes the sound of the surf is so loud you can hardly hear anything else. LOVE IT. In turtle nesting season after dark, and if you are very lucky sometimes before dark the female giant leatherback turtle comes to nest in the dozens and sometimes hundreds. I'm told the record is...

The perfect hotel to stay for watching the Leatherback Turtles. I can't say anything negative about the hotel: clean accommodating second floor room for 3 people, air conditioning, mosquito nets to sleep under, good food in the restaurant, and location adjacent to beach is perfect. We virtually had the place to ourselves since we were there in the middle of... More

Best leatherback turtle experience possible. Watch them lay their eggs from your patio. The restaurant is spectacular. Freshly caught fish, cheese made up the road by the owner and the chef, and all kinds of interesting dishes. Very reasonable prices. Rooms are very nice and even feature air conditioning. Sleep with your patio door open and listen to the ocean... More

We stayed at this hotel in early April. Room was fine apart from the fact we had no water, and the problem was not solved until the proprietor saw my wife wandering around in the early hours with a bucket! The food was good, the location stunning and the turtle viewing unforgettable. We had the good luck to see a... More

Went to Grand Riviere to see the leatherback turtles and thought the best place to be was right on the beach. So, for that reason we chose Mt. Plaisir, and it came highly recommended by acquaintance. It is a small, rustic hotel that is perfectly situated on the beach. The ground floor rooms are converted horse stables, which give it... More

The hotel is right on one of the best beaches in Trinidad to watch Leatherback Turtles. Each room has a view of the sea, we were on the upper floor and had a balcony from which we could watch the turtles - one came up the beach to lat her eggs at 3.30 in the afternoon directly in front of... More

Mt Plaisir is stunningly situated right on the beach - and it was fantastic to see the enormous leatherback turtles. But the place itself - oh dear! When we arrived the receptionist made it rather clear that she could not be bothered. But well, we all have off-days. The room, however, was disgusting. It was filthy, the bathroom looked like...

I always appreciate comments and feedbacks from our visitors/guests even when negatives since from each one you understand what people want and how to improve the property. My problem is when they are coming from suspicious source/s. We did not have any Danish visitors in the last three-four months and I find quite amusing that a review of a supposed... More

We were sent to Mt. Plaisir by Caligo Ventures who planned our 10 day trip to Trinidad and Tobago for birding. I'm so glad we opted to start our trip with one night here to see the turtles nesting and also the piping guan (guide will be needed to see it). This remote location was almost 3 hours drive from...
