The hotel is pretty bare and the rooms are in dire need of an update, but if you don't mind roughing it up a bit, then you'll be fine. The restaurant wad decent. The beach view from the rooms were the best part. The beach isn't the greatest as the water is grey and really rough, but the view is...

Our holiday to Trinidad and Tobago was planned to experience different types of accommodation and settings. We spent a four day break at this fantastic eco-type resort after three days at the Hyatt Regency in Port of Spain, Trinidad and before a seven day stay at the Coco Reef Resort in Tobago. Pierro collected us from the Port of Spain...

Mt. Plaisir was a great place to stay. I visited from Atlanta, GA. The Drive: we drove form Arima which was about a 3hr drive. The drive up the mountain was fine, but about 10 miles from the hotel the roads could do with alot of paving. I think with the hotel knowing they are the reason people drive on...

This is a lovely rustic hotel with helpful friendly staff. In the past I would stay at the hotel next door but after my first trip here, Mt. Plaisir will always be my 1st choice in Grande Riviere because it's more spacious. The room I got was gorgeous...the view is amazing and well laid out. The owner who I spoke...

Our main reason for staying here was to see the turtles coming ashore, unfortunately this was too late in the season but we were very lucky to see turtle hatchlings happen on the first night we were there [ stayed for 2 nights ].

Mt Plaisir has been the main force for the turtle conservation efforts in Grande Riviere beach since 1993 (long way before the area was designated a protected area by the government in 1997). The large majority of the hatchlings are killed by the vultures that flock the beach by the hundreds on late afternoons and early mornings and not by...

The Mt Plaisir hotel was so relaxing yet adventurous... We got upgraded to an upstairs room and what a blessing! The upstairs room was fabulous with a view overlooking the beach and ocean. you could see the turtle tracks and nests from our balcony. The turtle tour was so enjoyable - our group saw hatchlings and 5 nesting mothers! The...

This very quaint and rustic lodge was an excellent stay. A few quirks or complaints here and there won't take away from a generally positive experience The breakfast was great tasting but a bit pricey for standard stuff. Actually my only complaint was some cobwebs on the bathroom. I'm not sure people understand how precious a jewel this place with...

Hearing this to be a simple hotel, I chose to stay here for by birthday in May knowing that the turtles are just a few steps away from the rooms of this hotel.
