Stayed here twice when my son was heading off to university and when i went to visit him. The room are well kept , The proprietor is friendly and very helpful.The area is quiet and you can relax in the patio as you watch the traffic on the highway above. A great place to stay.

Going away to our first carnival in Trinidad and from the beginning to end it was magical. Welcomed to the island with the sunshine and greeted at Sam's guesthouse ever so warmly. Close to the energetic strip so we were never too far away from an enjoyable night out and if we felt peckish it wasn't too much hassle to...

I took a first-time vacation with a dear friend to Trinidad, but after our stay at Sam's Guesthouse, it will not be our last :-) Miss Polly and her family were very hospitable, as they made sure we were always comfortable and accommodated. The place was very clean and conveniently located around tourist sites. My fondest memory was when Ms....

Staying at Sam's is like home away from home. Ms Polly is very welcoming... The rooms are always clean and have a small fridge to keep your drinks cold; cable, a/c, and free wifi. The beds have been upgraded guaranteeing a good sleep which is very important (no matter what time you crawl into bed) ;-). It's located off one...

I used Sam's guesthouse for a short business trip to the Island of Trinidad. It is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood approx 10 mins drive to the center of Port of Spain. Food is available at walking distance and also "shared taxi's". The owner is a very kind lady and very helpful. She prepares an excellent hot breakfast every...

One of the travelers I was with has already written a view below that I am in agreement with, so I am just going to add in anything I think is relevant or was missed out. I have stayed at a guesthouse before where I felt very welcome. This was a very different experience. I can understand it must be...

I booked a stay at Sam’s Guesthouse over the carnival season after it being recommended by several sources and having read all the pre Aug 2014 reviews on Trip-advisor. Until yesterday (when I read Jerisho91s review from last week) I was perplexed as to how my experience had been so contrary to those before me. The review of jericho91 is...

What was seemingly an ideal location turned out to be a exploitation spot for carnival foreigners. A group of 4 of us would have reserved a room in September last year making a $US 896.00 or 50% down payment for a 6 night stay in February for Carnival. Our local friend was shown a spacious room with 2 queen size...
