Returned from Footprints Eco Resort-WOW!
Posted: Sun Jun 13, 2004 3:30 am
We stayed at Footprints for 2 nights last week, and it was wonderful! It's not for the tourist who wants luxury and excitement. It's definitely for the tourist who wants unique, nature, seclusion, beauty, good food, and pampering. We were the only guests, and we had a staff of 5! We had an oceanfront room which came complete with charming geckos near our enclosed garden shower. There are 2 large pools, both filled with water pumped from the very nearby Culloden Bay. One of the pools is chlorine treated, and one is only filtered. They both are similar to infinity pools. There is also a nice jacuzzi. The restaurant served very good food. They asked what we'd like for dinner, and then they went to the market to get the ingredients. Since this place has only a few rooms, we would have received great service even if we weren't the only guests. They also have 3 villas which are separate from the oceanfront rooms and very private. We snooped around and looked at them. They each have their own large pool and jacuzzi. They're very private. The road to Footprints is an adventure in itself, but worth the drive when you arrive at the resort. We were in Trinidad and Tobago for 9 nights, and the 2 nights at Footprints were our favorite. The co-owner, Mia, and the manager, Melissa, were both very charming, and a big help whenever we had a question about the country. We would highly recommend the place, and we'd be happy to correspond with others concerning details about Footprints. It's a shame more people don't seem to know about it.
