The rooms are rustic, no doubt about it. But the main villa with its terrace and bird-feeders is out of this world. There's a finch with a SILVER beak, glorious hummingbirds, outings to see amazing things. Go there for the unforgettable experiences and plan on no luxuries in the accommodations.

The Lodge is old main house with cinder block cabins or cottages dispersed through-out the grounds. Our room was spacious and comfortable although not much lighting for reading. We were on a bird-watching tour so were mostly away from the area during the day. Early mornings and evenings were mostly spent either eating at the appointed times in the dining...

We stayed here for 7 nights as a small group through Naturetrek. The birds from the verandah were amazing and there were always some guides around to point out and identify different species for you. All the staff here we found to be very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was great and packed lunches and dinners...

If you come to this place for the birds you won't be disappointed. Do not expect a lot re accommodations or food; both are basic which was ok but not great. Personally I would recommend doing a day trip vs staying here (we wish we had done this). Highly recommend staying at Hacienda Jacana (see review) and coming here for...

We spent three nights at Asa Wright, an ideal length of time for keen but amateur birdwatchers, like us. The array of birds visiting just below the famous verandah is amazing and one could spend many hours just watching them coming and going. There are usually one or two friendly guides around helping with identifications. A number of guided walks...

My husband and I spent 5 nights here last week and loved every minute of it. We are avid birders and were out most of the day (and some nights!) birding on the grounds and on trips that left from the lodge. Our room was up the hill (#22) and was spacious and clean. We were only ever in there...

We spent 4 nights here in a twin bedded room up the top of the hill. Positive sides are definitely the staff. Friendly and efficient and catered well for the large number of guests. Our room needed some maintenance: lock did not work and there was no hot water. Both were resoved quickly though so full credit to the staff....

Very well run nature lodge in the mountains of Trinidad. Access roads are quite bad but that's good to reduce traffic and development. Mainly a birders spot. Rooms clean and serviceable. Food basic and reasonable. Guides generally first rate. And staff tries hard to please. Grounds are great for birding and smaller reptiles. Quite a history there as well.

My wife and I stayed at Asa Wright for 4 nights in Oct. 2016. The weather was great while we were there, really hot, really very very hot and humid but no rain.
