The Amazon Lodge B&B
Ranked #1 of 3 Tunapuna B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Amazon Lodge is a quiet lodging enough 'off the beaten track' to rest and relax. The home is quiet, surrounded by trees and shrubs. A lovely getaway from the confines of living on a boat! We had some delicious meals and lots of laughs with our delightful hosts, Peter and Louise.

Stayed: March 2013, traveled with family

It has always been our hope at the Amazon Lodge that the green, tranquil surrounds will leave enduring and pleasant memories with our guests, so it has been very positive for us to receive this feedback. We are still planning improvements in the garden to enhance your experience in natural surroundings: new garden path to avoid slippery path, better seating in the arboretum, and varied foods to attract even more species of garden birds.

We spent a delightful three days at Amazon Lodge.

We had a comfortable, spacious room, with en-suite bathroom, unlimited access to fast internet, plus lots of books, binoculars etc available for use. The house is in a quiet location, with a superb view, and was an individual style with lots of Amazonian artefacts. It was about 30 minutes drive from the capital, and 20 minutes from the airport.

All meals were taken in the garden, where we could have spent all day watching the numerous colourful birds visiting the feeders. It was a perfect place to relax, especially with a rum and coke!

Comfortable as the accommodation was, what really stood out was the fact that our hosts went the extra mile in making sure we had a memorable experience. Peter and Louise welcomed us as if we were old friends. Having told them the sort of visits we would be interested in making, they organised them efficiently, and even drove us around themselves. We wanted to eat local food, and again we were very happy with the arrangements made to eat in and out. Peter was a mine of information about Trinidadian life, history and current affairs, and we found this stimulating and interesting. Their enthusiasm for the island was infectious.

We can thoroughly recommend Amazon Lodge to others.

Thank you for taking the time to write us such an extensive review! Indeed we wish all customers to arrive as guests, and depart as friends. We run a small establishment, and the personal touch and customized service is what we hope will set us apart. Do let us know if there are any ways in which we can further improve the Amazon Lodge.

Thank you for the positive feedback! We always aim to improve our service, and value your input. Please let us know if there are any additional ways we can enhance the experience for yachtsmen based in Trinidadian marinas, yearning for a few days of pampering on "shore leave"!

If you're looking for somewhere to stay that is away from all the hustle and bustle, this is the place for you. This is a quiet and relaxing retreat. The host is more than happy to take you wherever you want to go, and can show you all sides of life in Trinidad.

Having visited Amazon Lodge B&B in St Augustine ,the first thing one notices is the fantastic veiw of the Caroni plains below.
But apart from the laid back tropical setting "don't worry there are no wild animals or dangerous rivers."
the main attraction is your hosts Peter and Louise.
This couple will go above and beyond to make sure that your visit is relaxing and informative if that is what you are looking for.
As it is relatively small establishment it is very personal and has a great home style feeling .
My only regret was that my visit was so short.

Thank you for your generous compliments! As we are a new establishment, it is very encouraging to receive such a positive review. We have been spending extra time trying to improve our Rooms and Cleanliness rating: adding facilities to prepare coffee/tea in the rooms, deep cleaning of carpets to leave a fresh scent, and ensuring all bathrooms had a top-to-bottom spring clean.
