“Samise Villa was a GREAT experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Our stay at Samise Villa was more than we expected. The owners made our vacation in Trinidad worry free. They extended their kindness on many occasions to assure our stay in Trinidad was a success. We made the right choice!!!!!

I stayed at Samise Villa last October, I enjoyed it and have been back twice. The location is great, excellent value for money, rooms are clean and comfortable and the best part are Denise and Sam. They are very welcoming, very helpful and always ensure you feel at home. I personally prefer smaller properties because of the personal touch, and you can get this from Denise and Sam. They make sure that you are comfortable and assist in a way they can to ensure you have a great stay. Denise is also a wonderful cook! I would abolutley recommend this property. The location is great, it is close to the Savannah and downtown Port of Spain. Some reviewers have said that the area is sketchy, but it is safe, ofcourse the you take the same precautions you take in any major city.

I had a fantastic stay at Samise Villa last month. Two friends and I (ages 20-22) stayed there, then headed over to Tobago and when we returned to Trinidad decided to go to Samise Villa for another stay!

The best part of the Villa is Denise. She is a quiet lady but full of tons of useful information if you ask her things. She sat down with us; showed us where to go and where to avoid (for safety) in Port of Spain. She was a great source of knowledge. The breakfast she served was also good, we had fresh bread, fruit and eggs. And she had some meats, cheese spread and jellys. This added to our appreciation of this 'good deal'. Despite not encountering her husband Sam and their son as much, they both seemed very nice as well!

We stayed in room number 8, which was for groups. It had a double bed, single bed and set of bunk beds. It was very comfortable, with air-conditioning controlled in the room and a TV. The bathroom is shared, and it is best described as 'big and blue'. It was very clean, and there was hot and cold water.

The Villa is close enough to walk to Port of Spain (about 20-30 mins) which we took advantage of to save on transportation costs, but a bus does pass by as well. There slogan is true, that it is nature near the city. Very green but also very convenient. It does share a wall with the Psychiatric Facility but it was very safe.

I will most definitely stay there again if I am back in Trinidad and I would recommend it to any of my friends & family too!

I had a short but very pleasant stay. Both Denise and Sam are very nice and helpful to find my way around the island. The room was very good and I got everything I could have needed. So instead of getting a very expensive hotel room, I definitely recommend this. If I ever get back to Trinidad & Tobago, I know this is the place to stay!

Great value, accommodations and service for Carnival 2012. Denise and Sam were really accommodating and helpful in getting myself and my friend to all of our Carnival 2012 activities and were warm and genuinely kind. The room was excellent and provided us with exactly what we needed. I would definitely go back. In addition, the location is convenient as well and a good transfer point to other destinations. Thanks for your hospitality!

We stayed at Samise Villa with young children and loved it. Denise was great with the kids. Also, the location is great. It's near the zoo, gardens, savannah, just down the street from a pool, 30 minutes from Maracas Beach, etc. That food was great too. When I go back to Trinidad that's where I'll stay, no worries.
