I stayed at Pax more than a decade ago, before anything like Tripadvisor existed (I heard about it from a local paper in Cleveland, surprisingly), and I still remember how wonderful it was. The location is beautiful, with lovely views, and Gerard and Oda are some of the best hosts you could ever find. I was in town for research...

We were supposed to stay here for just two days but ended up staying for a week. The main reason for that was the wonderful host Oda that helped us planing our week and arranged with bird guides for us for a very reasonable price. They also serves fantastic food and the view from the veranda is magical. The only...

This lovely guest house is perfect for those who enjoy the natural environment and the peace and quiet of a delightful, elegant and cultured guest house of historical interest. Our host was a cultured, convivial, courteous and helpful facilitator, meals were good and our room was comfortable and clean. From every balcony and terrace there are marvellous views over the...

If you want a local experience in Trinidad, rather than a hotel just like any other any place in the world, then you must stay at this 100 year old, colonial-style guest house. This is a one of a kind, contemplative, quiet, clean, and restorative place, with an antique feel in a beautiful location, just ten minutes from the University...

Hidden away where everyone can see it, Pax is a great place to avoid the bustle of the Port of Spain area. After you've driven through all the switchbacks, you'll end up way up the mountain with only the quiet of the Mt St Benedict Monastery above you. From one deck, you can view the eastern suburbs of Port of...

We always like out of the way spots that are quiet and Pax Guest House is in a very quiet location. It has a great view and has nice roads to walk on, although hilly. We found that as a plus. We were in an upstairs room so had a nice breeze flowing through the room and had a wonderful...

On our recent trip to Trinidad & Tobago, this was one of the places we wish we'd had more time at. As a former monastery property, it's not fancy or flashy. However, it IS fastidiously clean, and has a great historical vibe. The hosts are as very friendly. We stayed in one of the lower level rooms with en suite...

Calm, quiet and a lovely break from the hustle of T&T. The food is good, simple creole done well. The really special element has to be the warm welcome from Gerard and his team .. And the incredible views down over central Trinidad. A lovely spot to come and unwind and slow down.
