Wow! All I can say is that our trip to Cap Haitian would not have been the same had we not hired Mr. Maurice to be our guide. He took us to San Souci Palace (beautiful) and The Citadelle Fortress (amazing) and then we had lunch at Lakou Lakay (blown away). Everything was so perfect from the setting, to the community band who came to drum for us and Mr. Maurice spouting a wealth of information about everything Haiti. We also hired him to be our guide the following day in downtown Cap-Haitian. I would probably be happy to pay double what we paid for the whole experience. If you do nothing else in the North of Haiti, HIRE MR. MAURICE ETIENNE TO GUIDE YOU AND EAT AT HIS COMMUNITY CENTER. It will be the highlight of your trip.

If you are looking for a Unique experience on an informative Tour and an impressive and knowledgeable guide, I will definitely recommend you to book that all in one package. Maurice at Lakou Laky has the local knowledge that you are seeking for an unforgettable experience in Haiti. You will experience the pleasure to be home away from home. Fresh food, the aroma and the smell of the coffee, clean room and amazing staff in a green environment, I bet you there will be no words to explain your Joy in that wonderful country.

My second stay at Lakou Lakay after a first visit in 2015. Same Great Room with the windows facing the courtyard the lush hills and the morning sun. Simple but comfy. Loved the sounds at night. The Village hum the playing children and later when all are asleep nature wakes up. Crickets or Cicadas and Frogs. Amazing. Even a bit hard to sleep but I Loved it. Dinner prepared by Innocente was delicious as always. Everything there is harmonious. Everyone so helpful . Rose walked into town and helped me get a Sim card for my phone . Got my dollars exchanged into haitian gourdes and helped me carry beers from the little market. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Staying at Lakou Lakay was an unforgettable experience for me. I traveled solo in Haiti to learn about its history, culture, art, and people - and learn the real story instead of what gets reported on the news. Mr. and Mrs. Etienne were the perfect ambassadors for their country and when I look back on my trip, they symbolize Haiti in my mind - warm, knowledgeable, and so welcoming. I was made to feel like a member of the family and even ate a Sunday lunch with the Etiennes. Highly recommend Maurice's tour of the citadel; very informative. He explained not only the citadel to me but also answered my myriad questions about Haiti and its culture. I will always treasure my memories of falling asleep listening to the rain, hearing music in the distance, enjoying Mrs. Etienne's delicious cooking, and feeling like I had stumbled upon the best secret a traveler could find. Simply amazing.

This hotel is very simple but very well located, in one of the most charming town in Haiti. The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. The rooms where simple but clean, although during the night we suffered from the heat!
