Nature at its best. Set against the mouth of the river and near the turtles that visit every year, this hotel offers intimate cabins that are decorated simply and very comfortable. Reasonable rate which includes breakfast, this hotel gives you great value for an experience you will treasure.

Peaceful and relaxing. The atmosphere was very much a let's go back to nature event. Need to stay at least two nights to get maximum effect. Staff were warm, friendly, and very helpful. Nothing was too much. "I will be back"

The Hotel is a top recommendation to nature lovers since it is situated in a remote fishing village next to a river on a large beach and rain forest nearby. The nature is unique, one of the best tropical settings we have experienced so far. It is a top spot to observe large leatherback turtles on the beach. Bathing is... More

Acajou is very rustic and natural and peaceful. The staff were courteous and friendly. The wifi was very efficient. It is in close proximity to the beach and there are numerous birds on the property. My children enjoyed staying there due to the fact that the experience was very different to a normal hotel stay. I would definitely recommend this... More

The cabins are really beautifully built. Very comfortable bed. There was not a coffee maker only instant coffee with a kettle. The breakfast was excellent every morning. Service also was excellent ,which for trinidad says a lot. The fish for dinner was not good at all so we would recommend Mt Plaisir for dinner. The grounds are lovely and we... More

Great location for seeing the turtles. The Stars visible in the night sky are breathtaking. The hotel staff were flexible and supportive. Felt very safe. Note that the drive from Port of Spain is 3 hrs and there is a section of road that needs repair - I had to take this section slowly in my rental car. Kids didn't... More

Sorry it's long but here is the honest break down... My family (2 adults and 2 kids under 5) returned from a mini stay-cation (3 nights) from Acajou, Grande Riverie (see other post for review on Grande Riverie). Acajou was a mostly pleasant experience and we do plan on returning but there was only one discouraging factor hence the 4... More

My favourite retreat on the planet. Very comfortable, well maintained room with a wonderful open patio with deck chairs and a hammock where a large part of my waking hours are spent in the bosom of nature. The food is good and consistent, and the service, in that rural setting, really good.

We really had a wonderful stay. Everything was perfect: nice accommodation, great food, professional guide for the turtles. We were in paradise :-) No stress, only relaxation. For sure the place to stay.

The place was clean and naturally maintained beautifully. The scenic view for river meets ocean was very appealing to the eye. The breakfast menu was complementary and you had a choice from the menu. The room was not air conditioned but cool enough for sleep.
