Stayed in room 12 very comfortable on upper floor over looking the beach.
The meal was delicious but much more than a senior citizen can digest in one sitting.the breadfruit in the seafood combo was the best I have had for a long time
My husband and I enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Mt Plaisir Estate Hotel in Trinidad. It is a beautiful drive along winding coastal roads and then you enter the quaint village of Grande Riviere. This hotel is right on the beach. Our room was on the second floor with a view of the beach where the leatherback turtles come in to nest. Our host was very friendly and helpful and arranged for our permits to be on the beach to watch the turtles with a guide. The meals were excellent and our room was large and air conditioned. Comfortable bed. We spent a lot of time on the deck outside our room overlooking the beach and relaxing. Also visited the baby turtles at the conservation area and a grass roots chocolate company. Everyone was friendly and have a strong desire to educate the need for care and conservation of these amazing turtles. We plan to go back to see the hatchlings and will stay here again.
