Keep in mind when traveling to another country you can not expect things to be the same. That said, our rooms were confortable, clean and in a great location. We had three rooms for eight travelers. We took advantage of the tours offered by the hotel and hired their driver daily throughout our stay. This is a family owned guesthouse... More

I stayed there in April 2009 and enjoyed the location as a base for expolring the Island and near by beaches. If you have a rental car you can go arond the country very easily as the access to the major high ways are easy to reach from Maravel. We stayed in the main hotel which was well furnished and...

We attended a wedding in Trinidad and the guest house was one of the recommended accommodations. As a timeshare owner I'm not thrilled about spending money on accommodations, but, since Trinidad had no timeshare locations I decided to stay at this el cheapo guest house. It was BASIC. If you have to stay there be sure to stay at one... More

There were 2 of us staying at Moniques Guest House, Maravale for 2 weeks. We were satisfied with the rooms and service up until 2 days before we had to check out. On that day my boyfriend, as usual, locked his suitcase with a heavy duty 'Ross' lock before we left the room to go out for a while. Before... More

My stay at over priced Monique’s guesthouse was very unpleasant. From the rusty bathroom pipes to the cobwebbed widow panes are only a few distasteful furnishings. The location is far away from shopping areas and events, and transportation is almost impossible unless you hire a driver or rent a car. Therefore, I will not recommend Monique’s to anyone unless you... More

I stayed at Monique's in September 2007 and i have to say i was blown away by the setting. Overlooking lush greenery, staff made us feel welcomed and was always helpful. However, the distance from the airport can be off putting but getting to and from POS was not difficult. You can hail taxi's at the front of the hotel... More

I was recently married in Trinidad, and chose Moniques to block off rooms for our out of town guests because we knew that all the other hotels in Port of Spain would be booked due to Carnival. I have to say that the staff at Moniques is extremely friendly and were more than willing to work around our schedule. The... More

I stayed in the Monique's Guest House because in that week all hotels in Port Of Spain where booked up, that is very usual in POS. I have to say that the place is clean, the exterior areas as well as the room. However, it is too basic for a business traveller. Rooms are old and run up, broken furniture... More

Monique's Guest House was very clean. I would stay there again but I don't think the staff was that friendly.
