We had stayed at the Kapok Hotel three years ago with our children . The location was and is great , but we had memories of rather shabby rooms . THe location remains for us excellent , so I called to enquire if the rooms had been renovated since . I was told that only about six renovations had been... More

This is a very cozy hotel, friendly staff and great value for money. The buffet breakfast has a wide variety of food and a wonderful view of the city from the restaurant Tikki Village. Pool area is never too crowded either. Will stay here again in a heartbeat!

Rooms were clean and offered nice views of the city. The bathroom could have been a tad bit bigger. Excellent rooms for conferences. KAVA restaurant on the ground floor is excellent and the wait staff are top notch. Having international cuisine as an alternative to the Chinese menu on the 8th floor is also nice.

It is a well located hotel and the rooms were well appointed, generally the hotel is probably a little tired but the staff were very friendly and welcoming and I would prefer it this way round to poor staff and excellent facilities. The internet is not lightening quick but certainly acceptable, there is a small gym with free weights and... More

My hubby & I booked the Hotel's Easter Special (2 nights stay with 1 night complimentary) and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were pleasant & accommodating, the breakfast buffet was very delicious & satisfying, the room was a great size (king bed) and very comfortable. The pool terrace is my favourite setting apart from the picturesque views you can... More

I do not write lengthy reviews but I told the Manager that I will be doing so. Stayed at Kapok for Carnival 2015. This was my third time staying at this hotel. We've stayed at the Hilton, Holiday Inn and Hyatt at other times as we visit Trinidad at least once a year. We will be back for Christmas. We... More

My bedroom was at best tatty and in need of renovation. The corridors outside looked as if some attempt had been made to make them look more contemporary by the addition of some wall lights but the overall result was drab. There on a weekend much seemed closed. No bar for example, no (outside) laundry service. If your suit needed... More

Stayed at Kapok 1 night during carnival season when we were unable to get a room at one of the hotel chains we normall prefer. Felt the room was extremely poor value for the cost.

I recently returned from my 6 day stay at the Kapok. Some of the rooms are in need of an upgrade and bathroom maintenance. Aside from a few broken items in the room that I stayed in, it was comfortable. The daily buffet breakfast had a wide variety to choose from. I would suggest reviewing how the food is being... More
