West Palm Hotel
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Chaguaramas
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Hotel looks okay from outside and more or less good from the reception side but the standard rooms are definitely not okay...
First thing that they are not too clean (it means that you can easily find someone's hair in the bathroom and inside the towel).
Second thing that there is no even a single window at the room but a big terrace that you won't open.
Third is the old AC leaking just in the floor.
Fourth is the absence of any table or chair to work at or just to put your laptop.
Fifth are the thin walls that you can hear your neighbours watching TV.
However there is a kettle, refrigerator and microwave owen!!! But no safe...
There is no internet in the room and only avaible near the pool and at the reception (Wi-Fi with normal speed).
Kitchen is not to good but with a pleasent and polite personnel.
Pool area is fine and clean but no towels there.
All sockets are US style and no way to get the adapter at the reception.
Telephones between the rooms were not working or I did not inderstand how to use it.

The place looks great from reception but inside tells a different story. I don't mind a hotel that is in need of upgrading bit this place needs far more. The rooms are filthy and haven't been properly cleaned ever. spiders webs in the shower? Surely this shows people are not staying here! The floors are not swept or wiped. Stagnant water in the drainage outside the rooms. The a/c is barely adequate. I'm only staying because evetywhere els is full otherwise I'd move immediately.. Don't not stay here if you can afford anywhere else.., the crews inn or Marriott are far better.

I stayed at this hotel from June 12-17, 2013. The outer appearance of the hotel is nice, however, the inside of the hotel does not compare with a \"Super 8\", but the prices are extremely more than a super 8. Queen beds were just made with two flat sheets, no comforters or spreads. Bathroom was very nice, however, the water temp could not be regulated so i would get from hot to cold in a minute. MOST of the staff including the manager had excellent customer service. Food at restaurant, well if you like sandwiches, then it\'s ok. Hotel is walking distance to powerboats and they had a very nice restaurant inside and vendors outside to purchase snacks. Pool had multiple bugs which was to be expected since the hotel is surrounded by trees, but the pool definitely needs to be repainted. The hotel is still under renovation, but i must add, it was very quiet and peaceful. Planned on staying longer, but refused to pay $120 US per night to stay in a hotel that could not compare with a $59 a night hotel in the U.S. Room had closet, microwave, refrigerator, electric kettle, tv and AC. second level rooms has a great view of the marina if you don\'t mind climbing all those stairs. :) If you ever get a chance to visit, say hello to Josonia for me, she was a real sweetheart. :)

Room Tip: Second floor has balcony with good view of the marina , but lots of stair climbing.

This hotel was definitely not one of the best. I liked the location of the hotel, however the standards and quality of the hotel was not up to par. The service was okay. My experience was not horrible but it was not great either.

Service at the hotel was exceptional,they said "no" to almost everything with a smile unfortunately, my room was located on the 2nd floor on the western side, at night I literally had to run from the pool to my room,since the back road to my room didn't have sufficient lighting,and a staff member reported that they caught a snake the night before, my room also had no hot water, the ac is located above the door and because of the layout of the room, by mid day the room was extremely hot, and it was suggested,by a note on the air condition remote, to not lower the ac to less than 22. One of the pleasures of going to a hotel is the opportunity a to say in your room 24/7, but this was impossible since one had to go to the kitchen for breakfast, since they didn't allow you to pack breakfast in a take away container, after guest ate, beyond that the breakfast was tasty, the night staff being a lot more helpful than the day staff. The view from my room was lovely, along with the pool, the facility can do with a few necessary upgrades, such as lighting, hot and cold water, I will also recommend they keep a house keeper around 24/7 for guest if they require any late night cleaning

Room Tip: Choose a room that has functioning hot water. If you are interested in the view as well as your safe...

Not a bad stay, stayed with a few friends over the trinidad carnival, had three rooms overlooking the pool next to each other. Some of the rooms still need renovating, one of the three rooms had an updated bathroom, flat screen tv and fresh paint, the other two needed those renovations.

Pros :-
Nice big pool
Rooms cleaned everyday and linens and towels changed.
Microwave, fridge and air condition
Wifi

Cons :-
Breakfast was inconsistent for the three days
Parking was limited and did not feel secure
Bar opening and closing was sporadic, no set times to open or close

Overall not a bad stay, for less than 100US a night, well worth the stay.
