Once I had booked flights to come for the infamous Trinidad carnival, I decided to cut the whole accomodation hazzle very short and book a room for my friend and I in this hotel, that has hosted me on several business occations and always been delivering on all aspects, most of all the warmth and genuine hospitality that you feel from the very moment you walk into the lobby.
I wasnt sure what to expect from the hotel during carnival when the place is completely sold out and buzzling with excited guests, but we found the same smiling, warm and helpful staff as always, and the few things we had to solve during our stay were dealt with quickly and professionally by Dalia and Camille, while Edomite at the bar gave us plenty of useful insights and tips.
On one evening the hotel hosted an evening event with food and drinks for all the guests free of charge, and outdoor showers were made available right after Jouvert - very much needed! We had locals picking us up for all major events, but as others have mentioned, a shuttle service on Monday and Tuesday would have been a very appreciated sadd-on.
Staff wise, I was very sad to hear that Erchelle will be leaving. On more than one occasion she has provided service that by far exceeded what you could expect from any hotel staff member.
I will be back for business in less than 3 weeks, and as always I look forward to spend a few days in my "Caribbean home".
