We've just returned from a trip to Trinidad and had a wonderful stay at Regent Star Hotel at Piarco Airport. This is a new hotel with tremendous potential; there's still a little work being done to finalise some of the rooms on the higher levels but that didn't affect our stay at all.
On arriving at the airport a quick call to the hotel and our shuttle bus arrived to take us and our luggage the short distance. We could see the hotel from the airport but didn't fancy dragging our cases around the roads in the mid day heat so opted for the shuttle.
Once at the hotel we found the reception area very modern, spacious, light and airy and received a great welcome from the reception team. We were soon shown to our room on the ground floor, which was larger than we expected with a lovely large shower. It was well equipped and housekeeping kept it spotlessly clean. The linen and towels were lovely and white and the team discussed with us daily about changing any towels.
The bar area was very welcoming and the patio area outside was a lovely spot for an afternoon drink. Bearing in mind that the hotel is so close to the airport we were pleasantly surprised how quiet it was. Once inside the hotel you couldn't hear the planes and outside it didn't cause us a problem; actually I found it quite fascinating watching the comings and goings.
The restaurant is a lovely large room and decorated very modern. The food was great; we tried most things over our stay and never had anything that we didn't like or could complain about. The staff were very accommodating if you wanted changes to the menu.
Overall I would say that this is a great hotel and once completely finished will be excellent.
At the time of our stay wifi hadn't been installed, but we were informed it was on the way. It didn't cause us a problem because when we wanted to use the internet we were shown to a computer desk behind reception so having no wifi caused us no problems. There's also going to be spa and pool facilities but they're not complete yet.
We enjoyed our stay that much that we're returning for a valentine event in February, and taking friends, and I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it's development over the forthcoming months.
I hope you found this review helpful.
