My boyfriend and I visited Forty Winks last month and it was a very pleasant stay. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the decor of the hotel was absolutely adorable. The staff were always willing to help. It was definitely a pleasant stay compared to the stiff, corporate-like hotels in Port of spain that we got tired of. It is fortunately situated right in the heart of POS and although parking initially was a headache, we made a deal with one of the nearby parking lots so everything worked out. All in all will definitely stay here again :)

This is a wonderful little hotel with a unique character and family-charm. The rooms are basic but well appointed and clean. The same can be said about the bathrooms. The most important aspect is the staff and the proprietor, Ms. Pam, who are simply wonderful, generous, friendly and want their guests to enjoy their visit from the sweltering heat outside. If and when I return, this will be my place to stay.

Room Tip: Book early since there are just a handful of rooms.

Thank you Indraneel, we appreciate the wonderful review. Was great being of service to you. You became one of us and we will be happy to welcome you back when next you are in town!
Our 'basic' rooms have everything. Boutique styled modern decor, 45 " flatscreen TV, Cable and wireless, a flip-up laptop desk, adequate cupboard space; and our baths?, big enough for 3 !, hot and cold water, stainless steel taps, soap, quartz counter tops, hairdryer, large mirror, towels, anything else needed ?? Shampoo perhaps, but the import cost for such a small place makes this unfeasible, so yes, walk with your shampoo or buy a small one at the convenience supermarket next door.
P.S. reminding you to send us the pics you took !! :-)
Safe flying !!!

Mrs Pam and her team are very flexible. We had a very detailed mail conversation about the rooms. We could check in late and check out later than normal. Without paying extra. The rooms are awesome! The colors are soooo beautiful. In a nutshell Forty Winks Inn s all about cuteness. When think about our stay there I see happiness ;-)
The breakfast was good, healthy and my belly was full. I booked 2 rooms and everything in the room was very okay! Clean, beautiful colors! I would definitely go back to that hotel.

My wife and I were in Trinidad for 2 nights recently. I wanted somewhere affordable to stay that was within walking distance of restaurants. Forty Winks is a very small hotel located a few blocks from "The Avenue", where one can find an abundance of good local food.
The room at Forty Winks was pretty small. The air conditioning was on high which was great after a long day out on the island. We did get a home cooked breakfast and there was someone staffing the front desk 24/7, which we needed for our midnight arrival.
The owner was very nice and showed us where to go for dinner.
In short, Forty Winks is a great place for a base camp from which to explore Trinidad and Port of Spain for a couple days. Jat note this is not a big hotel with much amenities.
