Stayed one week here on business and then moved on to the Royal Hotel 20 minutes south towards San Fernando for my second week. Accompanied by my wife I don't know how she managed. Don't be fooled by the term Suites....there wern't any. Originally booked a room with a balcony but was surprised on check in. Two buildings shut down for rennovations...no balcony to sit and relax unless you go poolside....and more exensive than just about any other hotel in Trinidad for what you get. Hotel front desk staff went out of their way to get me an extra arm chair into room and make life comfortable. Ocean view is just about gone because of 3 new condominuim buildings blocking it and a fourth one starting. Poolside was not kept tidy, lounge cushions always soaked from rain, glasses, dishes and food plates not picked up often enough. Food was OK, breakfast great, front desk staff very friendly, rooms very clean. Cara Suites was OK but nothing around the place.....but then Trinidad is not a place to go out for a walk in the evenings anyway. We decided to move 20 minutes to a much more charming hotel for my second week of work.
