Fred Zollna, an American citizen was born Gottfried Franz in Cosel, Germany (now Poland). At Laguna Mar, he does what comes naturally - greets visitors like long lost friends; spends hours playing cards and other board games; freely gives info on where to go, what to see and do; and stimulates conversations and discussions on almost any topic. He is truly a people's person. Never a dull moment when Fred is around.

Fred & Barbara Zollna

Somewhat more reticent, Barbara Zollna, is of Chinese/Spanish descent. A "Trini" by birth; her experience in the travel and hospitality industry and an in-depth knowledge of the tourism industry is an asset for first time visitors to Trinidad and Tobago.

The Zollnas had searched for years, then finally found and purchased an abandoned 28 acre estate on the north coast of Trinidad in 1993.  Their dream of a sublimely beautiful sand, sea as well as nature oriented place for their retirement became a reality when they welcomed their first guests to Laguna Mar in October of 1994.

Visitors from all continents have penned acclamations in the Laguna Mar Guest Comment Book. Fred and Barbara do not take any credits for the natural beauty of the area; but certainly acknowledge the contributions of their staff for the fine reputation of excellent cuisine and friendly service.

Here is but one example of their hospitality
