My husband and I stayed at the kapok hotel on our repatriation to trinidad to complete the state supervised quarantine. It was expensive but it was the cheapest out of all the hotels offering the quarantine, and the quality of the hotel was well worth it. The bed was huge and comfy and the pillows are the comfiest hotel pillows I've ever slept on. The TV with cable was great and the outside terrace we could use for fresh air is a god send. The room is spacious and was very clean. The staff are all very helpful and they must be run off their feet, as well as putting themselves at risk to serve us all. Bless them. The pool looks nice and inviting but we cannot use it which isn't the hotels fault its just the rules, the grounds are well kept and has some nice comfy outdoor furniture for sitting out and having a drink. The room service has been good and the few bits of food we have ordered from the kava restaurant have been decent however a little pricey so we have ordered food from outside. Our room included breakfast and the breakfast was really quite substantial, hot omelette or scrambled eggs and sausages or quiche etc, plus toast and jam, plus a yogurt piece of fruit, muffin or cake and a fresh juice, cant ask for more. Under the circumstances the hotel has provided an outstanding service and I would reccomend it to anyone wishing to stay here in the future (hopefully under better circumstances) Its not 5 star but its clean comfortable and has wonderful staff who are helpful.

This was the first time my wife and I stated at Kapok(City Break-Staycation) and I must say that it was not impressive at all. There was no room service so I had to actually go to Tiki Village to collect our food. I also asked if they could deliver 2 bottles of water to us but they said I had to go downstairs(from the 4th floor) to buy the water at the lobby and carry it to the room myself. I asked if we could have the complimentary breakfast(from Kava) delivered to our room to which they said they don't usually deliver it but they would this time because I asked. NB: BOTH RESTAURANTS ARE LOCATED IN THE SAME BUILDING so I dont see why the meals couldn't be delivered. The only good thing was the pool area which was very clean and well put together. The hotel staff was also very polite and friendly but you'll have to tell them if you're celebrating anything special because they're not gonna ask. When we checked out there was no forum provided for us to give feedback and well....no one asked us. I was MOST dissatisfied with the quality AND quantity of the breakfast especially since other competitors offer a FAR superior breakfast. I posted a pic of the breakfast but I forget to include the apple to the picture.

Was very disappointed with my stay there. I stayed there for carnival paid $500 a night the least the could do was have hot water. I had to take showers in cold water even when they came to fix it the guy could not he went to get someone else they said it was fixed it less than 2 mins later it was cold again. Complained to the front desk several times and also when I was leaving they did not do anything about it. Ridiculous! Would not be staying there again.

Excellent service. I was greeted by the security Aaron who politely reminded people to sanitise at the door. Then I was greeted with Paulina’s beautiful smile and phenomenal service. I’m very particular and tend to ask to many questions (so my husband says ) but she answered them without hesitation. The room’s view was BEAUTIFUL!!!. Seeing the Savannah and the ocean. You can’t get that anywhere else. Housekeeping was also excellent . My room was kept clean. The reason why I chose here was the salt water pool. I love to swim and it’s less damaging to the skin and hair. Thank you Kapok Hotel.

I recommended this hotel to my friend for Carnival'20. Waited 2 hours to get a room upon arrival. 2nd night card key did not work, waited 20-30 mins in the lobby after midnight for a Manager to be called from home to get this handled. Had an early check out, they offered to have breakfast for pick up,after selecting bake and saltfish..please see pix of what was received. Horrid!!! WILL NEVER BE A RECOMMENDATION OF MINE AGAIN!!
