Fodor's Expert Review Le Grande Almandier

2 Hosang St., Grande Riviere, Trinidad, Trinidad and Tobago

This low-priced hotel is on Trinidad's remote and beautiful northeast coast in an area that is a popular weekend escape for locals seeking a lush rain-forest backdrop and expansive beach. Rooms here are cozy, and each is decorated in a different theme. All rooms are air-conditioned (a rarity for a hotel on this part of the island), but cool ocean breezes are usually quite adequate. The hotel is located on the best beach for turtle-watching, and a pass to access the beach during nesting season can be obtained at the government office next door. The restaurant here serves creole dishes that use seafood caught just off the premises. The nearest shopping or nightlife is a two-hour drive away, so this is strictly a place for those seeking peace, quiet, and good home-style food.


  • Right on a beach with great seasonal turtle watching
  • Small, with a friendly-family vibe
  • Wi-Fi and air-conditioned rooms


  • Far from the capital
  • No bar, and restaurant serves only wine
  • Car is definitely required for any exploring
