Samise Villa
Ranked #9 of 43 Port of Spain B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I stayed here for 8 days this past Feb. 2013. I arrived earlier than my group and Denise, the manager, was very helpful making arrangements for taxi service and also informing me of locations that I could check out on my own. Once my group arrived, the room was comfortable and spacious enough for the four of us. The location of this bed and breakfast is very close to the Savannah/downtown Port of Spain. This was very convenient for us on Carnival Tuesday when it was impossible to drive into the Savannah. I also arranged a tour through Denise to the Caroni Swamp which I really enjoyed. Along with Denise being helpful and accommodating, she was very friendly and enjoyed spending some time chatting with her when she had some time to do so.

Denise, the soft spoken manager at Samise Villa, makes the entire establishment worth the stay. Located a 15 minute walk from Queen's Park Savannah, this older, but well maintained guest house, has Denise as its secret weapon. Her ability to make arrangements for our party of 6 made the final three days of our trip super easy. With only three days to spend in Trinidad we had a lot to see, and she helped arrange for a custom tour, as well as drivers when we need them to maximize the remainder of our trip.

Our local guide on Tobago gave us a tip about this hostage. We just loved the somewhat oldfashioned house and Denise, the manager and her service. She fixed a tour to Caroni swamp, the best taci guide there and back and also taxi to the airport. Thank you!

Stayed 5 nights at US $45 per night in a spacious room comprising double bed and 2 bunk beds. Shared bathroom spacious, clean, functional and with constant hot water and never had to wait to use it. Also situated away from rooms (but very close) which is always a good thing. Room had TV (didn't use) and aircon and plenty of power points. Comfortable bed and great restful sleep. All day tea and coffee and fruit basket to pick at as well. Breakfast varied but always hit the spot. WIFi worked perfectly including in room although an extra $5 per day. No computer for photos etc but Internet cares in town. Location is a 30 minute walk from centre but reality is that you don't need to be any closer. Taxi $4 TT or $0.66 so not an issue and a 5 minute drive in. US $35 for airport transfer was on the money and always worthwhile in a new city. Little fruit / supermarket 5 minutes down the hill and a food place across the road some nights. Outdoor sitting breakfast area as well as a verandah on the 1st floor. You pretty much had the run of the place (including kitchen). Sound security with key for front gate and swipe card for back door. Denise is the perfect host and has all the needed local info. Family live on site not that you would really know it and Whilsy very unobtrusive you can always find Denise close by when needed. $100 security deposit on arrival. Wouldn't look to far if you are looking for somewhere in POS as this place is hard to fault. Very deserving of it's high rating. Nothing out of the ordinary but a very homely, value for money place to stay either short or long term.

Denise, at Samise Villa, went out of her way several times to find appropriate restaurants, tours, accomodation in other towns, and transportation for the two of us! She also made it very easy to "come and go" from her B and B a couple days at a time over 3 different weeks! Setting is lovely and it is very easy to walk to lots of different places in Port of Spain from the "Villa"! Rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated. Breakfast outside was very pleasant!

My business trip to TandT was quite satisfactory and I found that the accommodation at Samise was very cozy and comfortable. Would most definitely stay there on my next visit and recommend Denise's place to all my family and friends.
