The Kapok is presently the best value for money right now in Port of Spain. The rooms are standard size with built in flat screen tvs with English and Spanish stations with usual U.S. channels and also BBC channels. The bathrooms have been upgraded since I last stayed here with rain shower in bathtub that is shorter than usual but... More

Much is well intentioned at this hotel and staff are generally helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable with acceptable bathrooms. The pool area is relatively compact, but a pleasant enough place to unwind. One of the lifts was particularly slow and was not always in operation, and corridors do not match the bright and spacious ground floor area. Breakfast is... More

I made a lot of memory in this place. It's pretty cool and a nice place to rest and relax. The staff are friendly and the ambiance was also great. The breakfast can improve though. However, the entire experience was amazing. Hats off.

This is a very cozy hotel, friendly staff and great value for money. The buffet breakfast has a wide variety of food and a wonderful view of the city from the restaurant Tikki Village. Pool area is never too crowded either. Will stay here again in a heartbeat!

Rooms were clean and offered nice views of the city. The bathroom could have been a tad bit bigger. Excellent rooms for conferences. KAVA restaurant on the ground floor is excellent and the wait staff are top notch. Having international cuisine as an alternative to the Chinese menu on the 8th floor is also nice.

It is a well located hotel and the rooms were well appointed, generally the hotel is probably a little tired but the staff were very friendly and welcoming and I would prefer it this way round to poor staff and excellent facilities. The internet is not lightening quick but certainly acceptable, there is a small gym with free weights and... More

My hubby & I booked the Hotel's Easter Special (2 nights stay with 1 night complimentary) and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were pleasant & accommodating, the breakfast buffet was very delicious & satisfying, the room was a great size (king bed) and very comfortable. The pool terrace is my favourite setting apart from the picturesque views you can... More

I do not write lengthy reviews but I told the Manager that I will be doing so. Stayed at Kapok for Carnival 2015. This was my third time staying at this hotel. We've stayed at the Hilton, Holiday Inn and Hyatt at other times as we visit Trinidad at least once a year. We will be back for Christmas. We... More
