How to Get There
If you want swish 7 star sterile luxury - don't go. But if you want a great mid sized hotel that exudes the relaxed Tobagonian outlook then this place is a must!
From the moment we arrived everyone was very helpful and all with a lovely smile. The staff were great, the restaurant had a good varied menu that changed between lunch and dinner, and the food was good.
The rooms were very good, plenty of space for two people and cleaned every day.
There are two pools available and the pièce de résistance is the private beach which made us feel very special indeed.
Ok, so there are a few steps to climb to get back to your room, but you will need those to work off some of your dinner and cocktails! And that beach is very worth the climb.
I read a few of the poor reports and can only think that IF they were accurate then the owners have certainly dealt with those.
We were two couples and we all loved the place.
Positives: Friendly service, cool breeze day or night, food variety and quality is satisfactory, nice bathrooms
Surprises: hair between the sheets, no cable tv (only Amazon firestick) and some insecurity in the shower and suite area as neighbouring houses can view through some windows in our particular room 200. No problem for us but maybe for others. We're going back in 3 weeks.
The view is besutiful, but that’s about that. The pool is green and every sunbed by the beach is dirty! The beach bar is old and dirty and they got cats walking around while you eat.
The staff is really unfriendly and not helpfull with booking tours at all. You should call ‘Mr. nice-guy’ if you need some help with taxi or if you want to see some places on the island. He took us to Speyside and Jemmas restaurant & Pigeon Point for glassbuttom boat. He can also help with boat in Speyside to Little Tobago. Sad we didn’t know that untill the last day. Phone number 683 8502 or 361 1297. He can also pick you up from the airport.
We often found a sign saying ‘back in 5’ at the reception and waited for more than 15 minutes and nobody showed up. We heard they changes staff often.
The bathroom door is glass and is open in the buttom.
The breakfast is not good either.
Stayed there for two nights and I wouldn’t go back :-(
The hotel has lots of potential, but they don’t use it.
From the moment my family and I arrived at the beach club we were treated with great hospitality. The room was very clean and well decorated. We had breakfast every morning at their restaurant (Café Havana) which was buffet style and was even given the option of eating at the restaurant or carrying our meals to our room. We took advantage of the pool day and night because the beach located at the beach club was too rough for the kids to bathe. The only problem I really had was the service on our phones in our room... not sure if it was due to the room which we were given (which was located on the bottom right hand side of the stairs) or a general network issue in the area at the time of our stay. Other than that it is a nice weekend getaway spot!
The property is built into a lovely corner of the island...I love how the structures are one with nature on the outside yet modern on the inside...the birds singing.....the sound of the ocean...the breeze wafting through the trees....loved it...The masseuse was also outstanding...the only negative was the open plan bathroom
