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...

Sam's Guesthouse is not fancy but it offers a clean, spacious and comfortable room in a very secure environment. A block away is Araipita with its restaurants and nightlife. Best of all in Polly who makes all her guests feel most welcome. Thanks, Polly, for making our stay wonderful.

My brother and I stayed at Sam's guest house in early Jan as we needed a place to stay whilst attending a family funeral. The guesthouse is ideally situated, just off the 'Avenue' where you will find several bars/restaurants and also across the highway is 'Movietown' where you will find a few other restaurants, cinema and shops. Polly was very...

From the time I arrived at Sam's I felt welcome. I was greeted warmly by Polly and the accommodations were comfortable and clean. The guesthouse is centrally located, which made getting around a breeze; from downtown to the Avenue, etc. Never once did I feel unsafe, Miss Polly went above and beyond to accommodate me. If ever I visit Trinidad...

Sam and her mother treated my friends and I just like family. We stay there during carnival and they helped us book transportation, but party tickets, locate the different camps, and even get fabulous carnival makeup done. It was extremely safe and everyone there is very nice and helpful.
