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

My stay here was wonderful, excellent customer service and delicious food on the 8th floor, beautiful views, and yummy pizza from room service. The pool was also lovely (small but nice). Very modern, great location.

Very helpful staff, bar and restaurant were hugely welcoming and the owner is both warm and keen to have feedback. Everyone from the room cleaners to reception and serving staff were unfailingly polite, cheerful and engaging. Nothing was too much trouble. A marvellous two week business stay - I would return without hesitation.

Defiantly would recommend this hotel to anyone, very clean and good service. Will be back soon, shame to be back home. The area is great with a great view from outside the window, we even had our own en suite with a beautiful bath inside, loved every bit of it. Overall excellent!
