Such a shame but this place has almost nothing going for it; - booked a pool room and was shown to a room that faced a wall down the side of the hotel. Ended up having to pay and extra $15 to get a pool room. I had no alternative as the surrounding hotels were full. Was told if I... More

AC was working descent enough and cable TV was good. I didn't get no wifi tho which was bad cause that's one amenity I... More

The hotel was nothing fancy but it was in a good location. However the towels were stained along with the sheets. Staff was good. But as I said it's nothing fancy if you looking for a quick night or 2 it's good.

I stayed here with my sister, my friend and her family and although I think Tobago is the most beautiful place in the world, this hotel made me want to end my vacation. The rooms were TERRIBLE! The worst I have ever seen. The beds were as hard as rock with dusty linens. The bathroom was the smallest thing with... More

Very nice garden full of birds, quiet and cool. 5 minutes walk from the sea. Nice breakfast and restaurant under the threes. Standard rooms without charm but confortable enough. Materasses could be better and mosquito prevention as well. Highly recommended from two swiss tourists coming for resting after Carnival in Trinidad. The best place we have been in Tobago (10th...

A convenient location very near the airport and Store Bay beach, but not for light sleepers! Noisy air conditioning plus music that is blasted from speakers facing out to the rooms from the kitchen every morning around 7am, means it is not a restful place. I paid 67 USD a night, which I do not think was great value considering... More

This was my 2nd visit to this establishment, the 1st was over a year ago but I must say the standard of the place has dropped significantly since my last visit. The location is great! Less than 10mins walking from the airport! The beach is about 5mins away with resturants, hang out spots and just about everything close by. Very... More

I booked this hotel because of its close proximity to the airport and because of the pool. They gave us a king bed for me and my two grown sons, which was unacceptable as I requested two beds, which was two small single beds!, very uncomfortable!. Linens were old, towels were dingy and dirty looking, the pool is in serious... More
