We stayed 6 nights at Half moon blue and found the accommodation to be just what we wanted. The rooms are spacious and we had a large balcony with sea views. The staff were always helpful whenever we asked for anything. All in all a lovely experience. Thank you

We've just returned from a wonderful fortnight in the Half Moon Blue. There are so many reasons we loved it, I'm not sure where to start. Helpful, friendly, relaxed staff. Simple but absolutely fine rooms. Delicious food. 2 brilliant pools. Fantastic hotel masseuse. One of the best beaches ever. A lovely beach bar. Great views. Good looking buildings. One needs...

Since I got a great deal on-line, I should be kinder, but what can you say about a place that's missing smoke detectors, has no backup power generator OR torches in the rooms, has spotty reliability of both cable TV and WIFI, is undergoing construction, and above all, fails to THANK the guests for staying there? My longest interaction with... More

The Half Moon Blue Hotel is a great option with its quiet ambience and spacious rooms. The staff are extremely friendly and very accommodating. I received an upgrade to my room without asking! My only disappointment was the breakfast options which I think should be upgraded to more local cuisine. The building itself could do with some upgrades as the... More

Half Moon Blue in its own way is very unique, it has Eight Suites and every one is different. What was so great about this hotel apart from having two pools, it had a private beach which was amazing. If I do decide to visit Tobago again that's the place I am going just for the beach. However, I was... More

Half Moon Blue is a beautiful small hotel, well maintained and well managed. Its in Bacolet in Tobago and its a very quiet area even in the day, a totally relaxing atmosphere. The room was huge and very clean with a a surprising huge bathroom as well. Service was great, I had no problem, even with the room service. Besides... More

I booked two rooms at the Half Moon Blue Hotel on short notice. This was the worst experience I ever had at a hotel. There were ants in the bathroom (toilet seat, sink, towel rack) in both rooms. I did receive ant spray from a helpful front desk clerk. However the following day after I returned from a day trip... More

This is my first time ever reviewing a hotel, because I felt I must warn others. I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and it was 3 nights too long. Upon arrival the hotel seemed dated and need of a serious overhaul. We were welcomed by ants once we walked up a hill to our room. My parents room... More

I spent a week there with my brother and nephew and we loved the place. The HMB is a lovely colonial style with an awesome view. I stayed in the Junior Penthouse suite. A bit of a climb up the stairs, but the room is worth it. If you want a more upstyle room try the Bacolet Beach club across... More

my husband and i did not have time to go on a honeymoon two months ago when we got married so we decided to have a weekend getaway. This hotel seems very ancient when we arrived and my husband did not want to stay when he saw the place. The girl who checked us in was very pleasant. After taking... More
