The Hotel Iberostar Grand Hotel Trinidad is, beyond doubt, the best place to stay in Trinidad.
It is an adults only (15 +) boutique-hotel built on a converted colonial mansion, a very well achieved architectural integration into its environment with the best facilities available. Modern, but boasting all its grandeur from the past.
Its fantastic location facing a park and within walking distance from Trinidad’s main square; its large, beautifully decorated rooms and modern bathrooms; the elegant reception/lobby area which welcomes guests after the heat and hustle of Trinidad, makes it a true oasis in the core of the city.
Its practically only flaw is the lack of pool or outdoor space, which several visitors miss since Trinidad can get so hot in the summer! But one can always escape to Ancon Beach, excellent for swimming and snorkeling, only 15 minutes away by taxi.
The mountains of the Escambray Range, Cay Blanco, The Sugar Mills Valley, among other attractions, are easily reachable as well.
The hotel features a restaurant for breakfast and dinner and there are, of course, plenty of private restaurants (paladares) around, and live music venues within short distance from the hotel.
-Rooms facing the park offer a balcony and nice views but can be loud on Friday- Saturday nights or whenever a celebration is held in the park. Therefore, if you prefer quietness or are an early sleeper, you might consider booking one of the rooms in the back.
-Being the #1 choice in Trinidad it can be sold out so book early!
Ideal for couples and honeymooners.
