    In Maraval, 3km north of Queen’s Park Savannah, Monique’s is a bit out of the way – you'll need a car or a taxi to get into town – but offers lots of peace and quiet.

    La Calypso

    A short walk from Ariapita Ave, this ultra-secure, bunker-like structure has 18 basic, clean rooms in its various nooks, some with balconies but many with no natural light at all; the more expensive have air-con and TV. Perhaps not the most atmospheric accommodation, but the rates are some of the lowest in town and the upstairs deck provides some open-air chill space.
