“Just dont believe all you read in the blurb”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

We stayed at the Laurena while meeting some friends from SVG and remained for the Carriacou carnival. Consequently we were offered a rate applicable for two or more days. The room was just about on a par for what we paid. The aircon worked OK but had to compete with the gap round the door. However maid service was minimal and apart from making the bed and replacing towels after four days nothing else was done. We had to ask for the floor to be swept and the trash bin remained unemptied throughout. The dining experience was a work of fiction. We ordered pork medallions from a menu given on our arrival and were served casserole sized pieces of locally butchered pork in some form of jerk finish which had as little to do with medalions as the kitchen has with its claimed fine dining. The wine we asked for didnt appear and g&ts were charged at 16ec each (approx £4). We complained to the chef who told us management knew he couldnt comply with the menu! The cost of the meal was not charged to us but we were required to pay for those hugely exhorbitant drinks. No apologies from management for the meal.
Reception is closed up overnight and there certainly doesnt appear to be any duty staff although there is a list of emergency contacts posted in the room. Problem is, on the one, non urgent, occassion we wanted to use the phone we couldnt figure it out.
Oh yes, full payment is required on arrival and 4% added for cards.
Really - dont bother

I enjoyed my stay at hotel Laurena so much when it was time to go i wish i didn't have to leave. Professional staff very courteous and accommodating, the go out of their way to ensure your comfort, splendid food at the jerk center and the hotel restaurant. The room was very comfortable my mom and I did not want to leave the room to go outside. There is a high standard of service at the hotel and i would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone especially if you are newlywed or family/friends vacationing. Thank you Hotel Laurena you made my first visit to Carriacou a memorable one, i can't wait to visit again!!

I loved my stay at hotel laurena. I loved the chef who cooked a fantastic dish of jerk chicken and steam fish. The management and staff was very helpful and courteous. I was very pleased with the rooms and how spacious they were. My family really enjoyed the time spent there and will recommend this hotel to whomever is interested in going to Carriacou.

Carriacou is a wonderful untouched island. I had to comment on my stay on this beautiful island. My stay at Hotel Laurena was the excellent. The staff was very attentive when I needed them and kept their distance when I needed space. Compliments to the Chef. The food was delicious. It's like they just plucked it out of the ocean. The rooms have to be the best on the island because they are very clean and modern.
