you can tell that the hotel used to be a good and nice one. But the owner has not succeed in maintaining the level of quality. Our room was not clean at all, smelt humidity and the equipment was not in a good state (broken window in the bathroom, no pressure in the shower,...). Nevertheless, the tenant is nice and...

Fred Zollna (Hotel's Manager/Owner) is the heart and soul of Laguna Mar. The hotel is nestled in the Northern Range mountains among lush tropical rainforests. Just waking up to the sound of the crashing surf and the orchestra of birds in the morning makes it worth the trip. Rooms are not five star, but are clean and comfortable. The food...

The Lodge is a bit old but beautiful located. You can hike by yourselves to Yarra beach one hour or three hours one way to Paria Beach and Waterfall. Close to the lodge is the Marianne River where you can swim inside or take the sea. The water is very clear you can drink it. Ask for the way to...

There is nothing remotely "resort-ish" about Laguna Mar. This is a third-rate guest house with a lot of shrubbery along dirty, slippery walkways. No one bothers to air the rooms for occupancy. The bed linens are thin and worn and so are the bath towels. Cracked wash basins and dripping shower heads do not spell resort to me either. The...

This resort is a gem! The owner, Mr. Zollna, has a great staff and provides interesting insight on everything from local culture to food and current events. It was a joy to sit and relax with him after five crazy days of Carnival in the city and he was always available to grab a beer and play Rummikube (spelling?). The...

The Laguna Mar Lodge is located in Blanchisseuse, Trinidad. The road from Port of Spain to Blanchisseuse is lovely; so is the Lodge. The rooms are basic, simple and clean. The rooms are a bit humid. The owner, Mr Zollna, is a fantastic host. He cooked a delicious meal for us and shared interesting stories with us. We even saw...

We've been living in Trinidad for 4 years and we finally decided to go and check Blanchisseuse, when we arrived to Coco's Hut Restaurant, Mr. Fred welcomed us and showed us the path to the beach, we enjoyed the beach and back to the restaurant we asked to see the rooms, we liked them so we decided to go later,...

There is little resemblance to anything 'resort' like at Laguna Mar. The rate is reasonable for the rustic atmosphere and it is close to a wonderful hike (no need for a guide, just take the upper-track to the right of the path and watch your step to Three Pools!) and across the street and down the path from the beach....

Reaonsably priced, beautiful setting. Excellent food. Far from busy Port of Spain on the North coast of Trinidad on the beach. Very relaxing. The host was charming, and the room was spacious. I would definitely return.
