The hotel is located in a quiet area of Port au Prince (from what i can experience)

The rooms are very basic, but spanking clean.

The restaurant served me a great sandwich with very real lime squash.

Wifi and internet are not the best from some areas, but this is expected unless one spends much on that infrastructure.

The staff do not appear to be trained in what we can call "modern" hotel trades, but the welcome visitors in a good hearted Haitian spirit, and seem eager to help. They behaved more like home staff who are accustomed to the family.

The swimming pool was squeaky clean from looking at it.

And the furniture is all local , with pieces of artwork or paintings greeting you repeatedly. One piece had me do a double take as it looked so real

Honest friendly establishment. Delicious food served. We could hear the little Pipirite sing in the courtyard. The staff took great pains to procure for us some freshly squeezed cherry juice ( a must try!), even though that menu item had expired for the day.
The morning we left, our daughter was perplexed to have dropped some money in the courtyard, inadvertently. To our relief, the proprietor had been watching diligently for signs of someone having lost such. He restored it with a lovely smile.

This hotel is not trying to be anything special, but rather a comfortable, safe place for people that are visiting the city. Typical customers are foreigners looking for a safe and comfortable respite after working on one of the many projects in the city.

Rooms are clean, but not fancy. Service is decent, but not elegant.

The hotel is owned by a Haitian born German man named Hans and his siblings. Hans is an interesting guy and I enjoyed a couple of long rambling conversations with him. Staff is not fluent in English, but had enough to be able to get me a room and breakfast. I was desperately in need of laundry service and this was promptly and reasonable attended to.

On my last morning in Haiti, Hans arranged for his driver to take me on a tour of PaP and to the Iron Market to gather some souvenirs for my family, which I appreciated.

The grounds are well kept and manicure. All three mornings, I woke to the swish of employees using brooms to sweep up fallen leaves from the night before with tiny Haitian-made brooms.

The pool was warm and clean, and generally unused (I can never resist a pool, but that seems not to be the fashion in Haiti - I have never seen so many ignored pools in my life).

Don't miss the amazing carvings in mahogany scattered about the hotel (including the front desk). Some really amazing stuff.

Breakfast was good and included in the room price. Other meals were nothing special but passable in a pinch.

WiFi works only near the lobby and restaurant seating. Hans says he is looking to expand service to the rooms.

Room Tip: I am told that rooms above the lobby can catch the wifi signal.

I have been to Haiti over twenty times in the past forty-five years but have stayed in hotels only three times, this being the third. It's wonderful that Haiti now has a number of international hotels and it is part of Haiti being "open for business." But those hotels share more in common with their partner hotels in other countries than they do with the culture and "feel" of Haiti. Not so with Coconut Villa Hotel.

Coconut Villa is a Haitian Hotel. It sits off Delmar Road, with all its business, life and traffic, yet because it is in a large campus of tropical plants and trees it is calm and peaceful. The grounds and rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and the restaurant very pleasant.

Breakfast is part of the package, and the choices, while simple, are filling and always accompanied by really good Haitian coffee, bananas, and juice. Dinner options are classically Haitian - grilled pork or goat, conch, creole or fried chicken, pastas, good salads (including wonderful avocado and union salad), and riz nationale (rice and beans Haitian style). The restaurant is very clean and the food is prepared with great care.

My family joined me for four days in Haiti and so we booked with Coconut Villa - easy to do. We have two adjoining rooms.

Now about why this is a bit more like real life in Haiti: Port-au-Prince has rolling blackouts depending on how much electric power there is and the demands of various parts of the city. Coconut Villa is very near the vital center of business and industry and so has power most of the time, but the lights to go out sometimes. Their own generator comes on very quickly and light continues. The Hotel is conscious of water conservation and careful about its use. At the same time the pool is always filled and clean, and hot water showers are standard. The "Haiti" part of all this is that sometimes the pressure drops for a few moments and sometimes it takes a while for the water to heat up. Coconut Villa takes greater part in the "sometimes" events of real Haiti... sometimes a bit of patience is in order.

The Hotel makes the visitor feel at ease and welcome, but does not pretend that it is isolated from the realities faced by life in Haiti. The staff helps ease the visitor's way into a way of being in Haiti that is not isolated from Haiti, but part of it.

We had a birthday party for a friend and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. We were a group of nine and a buffet was set up for us. It was wonderful. We sat at a table by the pool and talked and laughed and ate into the evening hours.

I highly recommend Coconut Villa for its central location, proximity to the airport, its staff, the simplicity of rooms and the pleasant grounds. It is not a cut-out chain hotel, and not off the charts expensive. But most important it is a Haitian Hotel that is proud of its Haitian character. It is family run and has been here through good times and bad for forty two years. I hope it is here for years to come.

I just Recently visited Haiti for the first time, and I stayed at the luscious secured property the Coconut Villa Hotel, in the capital city, It is an absolutely stunning place to stay, relax, and enjoy the nearby hustling and bustling of the City. Here in this cozy tropical oasis you are welcomed by friendly and courteous staff who accommodate with the utmost care and concern. The prices are great! Check-In is easy & quick in English, Creole, or French. The 24 hour front desk reception will guarantee a comfortable stay. Great place for Americans & other Tourists to experience Haiti* style and living in a great central location to airport, museums, monuments and other surrounding nearby attractions like Towns such as Petionville : a swanky neighborhood town of great restaurants and bars and nightlife. Every morning, coffee can be ready for you by 5 a.m. The open air lanai is where you'll dine to enjoy all the best in homemade Haitian Cuisine breakfast, lunch and dinner. A very sweet Madame Chef will cook to order everything your heart desires (from the menu of course). With breakfast you enjoy many different fresh cut fruits and assortment of fresh fruit juices , adding a perfect touch to breakfast by the pool. The Pool is where the sun is Perfect! You will not want to leave! All meals can also be delivered to your room! The pool and bar are set in the courtyard filled with lots of tropical plants and foliage, and of course beautiful coconut palms. The rooms are clean and cozy with a Caribbean flare and lots color and art spread throughout. We stayed 7 Nights here... and all of our Days were spent & filled with Great experiences, touring in the sunshine Enjoying and visiting cities & beautiful coastal beaches 2 hours away from hotel - like Club Indigo Beach, Montrouis, 1 of Haiti's longest stretches of beaches Haiti in the Cotes De Arcadins & Jacmel, (water falls, city tour) We Enjoyed HAITI!!!

Thank You Coconut Villa Hotel
