We stayed in this hotel with our swim team. First impressions from the road are not good and they don't get any better once inside. The rooms are large and together with the fridge and microwave are the only positives I can find with the room. Beds are lumpy, no mattress cover is provided, so sheets just slip off the bed and are actually too small for the beds. Our sheets were only changed once during a week long stay. The net curtains were torn and every night is water torture. The AC units are so loud and have no drainage. Water therefore drips from the top AC to the next and so on. I wear wax ear plugs and even with these it was hard to sleep. The bathrooms have no natural ventilation or extractor fan so air is stale smelling and mould is prevalent. Beware the tiles are very slippery (one of our swimmers ended up in hospital with 6 stitches after slipping and missed the whole competition). The breakfast is horrible and for the most part inedible. Cereal choices - fruit loops or frosted flakes. Hot food - greasy hot dog sausages and anemic looking scrambled eggs. Breakfast is not provided until 7am, so if you are staying for a sports event and need to leave early you are out of luck. The hotel is not flexible about providing an earlier breakfast. There is no bar or area to socialise in the evenings.
We have already found an alternative hotel for next year as no one from our swim team of nearly 30 persons wants to stay here again.
Finally Couva itself has nothing to offer. Apart from Subway, Mario's Pizza and KFC there is no where to eat.
