Arrived at 2pm, checked in and went up to the room only to realize housekeeping was still there, the room was dirty. Front desk said they were going to try and switch the room only to reach downstairs and be told there are no available rooms with double beds and we had to wait another 30mins in addition to 45mins...

While some of the rooms are quite simple, they are functional, very clean, comfortable, have great views from the Savannah side and essentially are perfect for those on the move. You can of course upgrade. The hotel is perfectly positioned to either get into or out of POS. The staff are outstanding at all levels, very friendly, caring and all... More

I have been coming to the Kapok for around 8 years. Each and every time I am greeted warmly, taken care of thoroughly, and treated respectfully. I cannot say enough about the team at the Kapok. Every department has a kind and helpful staff. Its like coming home every time I visit.

The Kapok is one of the better choices in Port-of-Spain. Unfortunately, that's not saying much. The Chinese restaurant on the 8th floor is good and pleasant. And has a beautiful view to the Savannah. The Rooms are a bid old fashioned, with tiles instead of carpets. The windows (pool site view) cold have used some cleaning. The AC is good... More

All in All it was good. My kids enjoyed it. Room service was great. The staff was always there when you needed them ( and not a moment sooner), you would almost think you were there alone. I would return any day.

My family and I stayed at Kapok Hotel (Trinidad) in Oct 2014, for the first time. We thoroughly enjoyed the time there. Location is ideal, close to everything, and quite scenic around the Savannah. Price was quite reasonable as well, as we got the "Best Price" offered. One drawback is that the Continental Breakfast that was included in our package,... More

The location of this hotel worked very well. It was very easy to get to and even easier to get to places of interest in the Port-of-Spain area. I was participating the Scotia Bank Cancer 5K this year and this was ideal as it was so easy to get to the start of the run which was in Queen's Park... More

Appearences slightly deceiving, the outside has had a makeover, whilst the bedrooms are dated with ill fitting doors, so if guests passby talking at night, you'll probably hear them... But helpful staff, with some very pleasent ones too. If your'e staying for more than a few days, hire a vehicle to move around, cheaper than the local cabbies.... And be... More
