Mt. Plaisir was a great place to stay. I visited from Atlanta, GA. The Drive: we drove form Arima which was about a 3hr drive. The drive up the mountain was fine, but about 10 miles from the hotel the roads could do with alot of paving. I think with the hotel knowing they are the reason people drive on... More

This is a lovely rustic hotel with helpful friendly staff. In the past I would stay at the hotel next door but after my first trip here, Mt. Plaisir will always be my 1st choice in Grande Riviere because it's more spacious. The room I got was gorgeous...the view is amazing and well laid out. The owner who I spoke... More

The location of the hotel is lovely, right on the beach but that was were it... More

Mt Plaisir has been the main force for the turtle conservation efforts in Grande Riviere beach since 1993 (long way before the area was designated a protected area by the government in 1997). The large majority of the hatchlings are killed by the vultures that flock the beach by the hundreds on late afternoons and early mornings and not by... More

The Mt Plaisir hotel was so relaxing yet adventurous... We got upgraded to an upstairs room and what a blessing! The upstairs room was fabulous with a view overlooking the beach and ocean. you could see the turtle tracks and nests from our balcony. The turtle tour was so enjoyable - our group saw hatchlings and 5 nesting mothers! The... More

This very quaint and rustic lodge was an excellent stay. A few quirks or complaints here and there won't take away from a generally positive experience The breakfast was great tasting but a bit pricey for standard stuff. Actually my only complaint was some cobwebs on the bathroom. I'm not sure people understand how precious a jewel this place with... More

Hearing this to be a simple hotel, I chose to stay here for by birthday in May knowing that the turtles are just a few steps away from the rooms of this hotel. The greatness of the turtles did not disappoint at all. The tour guide and organization of the tour was great. The staff at Mt. Plaisir however.......needs work... More

We had a great time at this hotel. They are very friendly, rooms are maintained very well and food is okay. Breakfast was good and a must here. Since our main activity made us stay outside major part of our stay, it is worth every bit

Rooms are basic but more than what's required when visiting to watch the turtles. We were in room 12 and loved the experience. Evening meal wasn't the best but was very pleasant, and after seeing reviews we were relieved. Great views and great to see the turtles. Sitting out on the balcony with drinks late into the night watching turtles... More
