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

This hotel is really a home away from home. It is my favourite place to stay because of the location. The view from upstairs is fantastic and Tiki Village Restaurant is a must. Then there is Kava on the ground floor where most of the evening it is full of after-work patrons just relaxing. Because it is so close to... More

I stayed there 4 nights on a business trip and was pretty happy with it, clean, really great views, and everything was excellent, reasonable price for what Trinidad is known of. will stay again without hesitation.

My review is not for the hotel's accommodation aspect but instead for its meetings facilities. We recently completed a three-day meeting at Kapok Hotel, utilising their Kayak and Samaan Rooms. The rooms were adequate for our needs and the view of POS was appreciated. Mark from hospitality/restaurant was assigned to us and delivered efficient and responsive service with a smile.... More

The Kapok is close to the Savannah park, across 9 floors, with a small outdoor pool and two good restaurants. The staff were all very helpful and the rooms clean and well-equipped. Breakfast in the Tiki restaurant on the 9th floor is ok but there isn't a lot of choice - the fruit and juices in particular have room for... More

I have been having dinner at Tiki Village restuarant over 20 years now. Food is always of a high standard and accomodation is very comfortable. From our seated table we are able to take in all the fireworks display in the Queen's Park Savannah on August 31st year after year

As the title of this review states... This hotel exceeded my expectations. The lobby is modern, clean and open. When we went up to the second floor, the atmosphere changed. The hallway was drab and looked old. At that moment, I started to reconsider the hotel choice. However, when I got into my room, I was pleasantly surprised to see... More

I will start off by saying that the Kapok Hotel was not my first choice of hotel when I knew that I would be visiting Trinidad for a wedding. I wanted to stay at the Hyatt. But, this hotel was the hotel of choice of the bride for her overseas guests and it was conveniently located close to where the... More

Stayed for two nights. Check-in was good - friendly, professional and courteous. Everything else - room, restaurant, overall service was "meh". I especially didn't appreciate the hostile service from the waitress in the restaurant. Check-out was bad (e.g, was double charged and had to spend hours with credit card company trying to fix the mess, and wasn't even thanked for... More
