Trinidad Hotels and Accommodation
(Trinidad, Republic of Trinidad and Tobago)
The Caribbean island of Trinidad offers many of the ingredients that combine to make the perfect tropical holiday destination, with plenty of beachfront accommodation and leading resort hotels to match its image.
Much of the lodging available on Trinidad is known for being surprisingly sophisticated and often takes full advantage of the island's wonderful lush scenery and views.
Serving as Trinidad's proud capital, Port of Spain is where you will find some of the best hotels on the island, often being well placed to walk to a number of the shopping centres and nightspots. A choice of further accommodation lies in more remote areas of the island, and whilst the surrounding amenities may not be as plentiful, the tranquility in unrivalled.
Where to Stay
If you are looking for a room with a view on Trinidad, then one to consider is the Maracas Bay Hotel, which enjoys spectacular panoramas of Maracas Bay and its beautiful white sands, together with private balconies, air conditioning and surrounding tropical gardens.
Those wishing to stay in Port of Spain will find that the Hilton Trinidad on the Lady Young Road, on Belmont Hill, caters well for families and business travellers alike, with both a high standard of accommodation and also an extensive conference centre.
The Royal Palm Suite Hotel on Saddle Road lies on the very outskirts of Port of Spain and is close to some excellent shopping malls, while the Crowne Plaza Hotel on the Wrightson Road is more central to the action and offers more than 200 reasonably priced guest rooms.
The Iberostar Grand Hotel Trinidad is well placed for those looking for accommodation close to the island's airport and stands on the Calle José Marti y Lino Pérez, where it is just over 2 km / 1.5 miles from the Piarco International Airport. Directly to the south of Port of Spain and on the westerly coastline of Trinidad, San Fernando remains an especially popular resort, with hotels here being near to an array of secluded beaches and also the Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust. Other notable resorts on Trinidad include the historical town of Arima, on the eastern side of Port of Spain, and also Manzanilla Beach, on the easterly Atlantic shore.
