Staff very pleasant, rooms very clean, housekeeping excellent! Breakfast was ok, they just need to monitor the dishes that needs to be refilled. I had no problems had a wonderful time! Can't wait to revisit.

Been around since....1958. At least ...the atmosphere carries an old late colonial nostalgia...the hey day of the British Caribbean good life for those who remember it. Cozy rooms still. Mae ling may or may not still have her boutique there

Stayed at this nice hotel, while attending a conference in Trinidad. It was a group of 50 or less Barbadians. The stay was comfortable and clean. I stayed in a room with one other. Our room was tidy everyday and towels were changed often......that's a plus. The breakfast which was included in in the cost was good enough not much... More

a good and clean hotel with good staff, they could organize us a tour to the angustura distillery in 45 minutes after 8pm, well done, a nice swiming pool; good restaurant, breakfast is a mess, not the write place for holidays

Stayed one night at this hotel with my husband and 2 daughters. From making reservations with Roxanne, checking in with Roland, the guy that brought my bags upstairs (can't remember his name) to the staff at the Kava Restaurant - all were 100% professional and friendly. The room itself was more than enough for our needs - we were on... More

I've been staying at Kapok during carnival for the last four or more years, and 2015 was most disappointing. I realized there must've been a change in management even before I checked in, after having received a not so friendly email from reservations. Be that as it may, I was happy to see so many familiar faces at the front... More

Rooms terribly overpriced for the value. Beds were shot, a/c barely worked, bathroom shower/tub was falling apart. Overall, this hotel would be hard pressed to charge more than $75 per night in the USA for the unsatisfactory room we received. With taxes, (21.5%) and charging us an extra $16 per day for our one child over 12 yrs of age,... More
