This place was perfect for us! We wanted a simple place on the beach far from the tourist crowds, and this really fit the bill. If you want to stay in a typical hotel room in a posh resort, this probably isn't your scene. We loved it-- a kitchen where we could make meals if needed, a fridge to keep... More

Reading some of the other reviews, the other reviewers pretty much said what I have to say! These cottages are some 30 - 40 - or older years in vintage. They haven't been upgraded, perhaps ever, or so it seems. The kitchen was functional, but a little lacking (ah, those less than sharp knives...) the bathroom - again functional. Water... More

Remembering Charlotteville from some years ago we were certain that it was what we wanted. We wanted a villa/cottage on a real beach away from the generally touristy areas where we could walk into the sea and sup rum punches as the sun went down (and up, come to think of it!). We were concerned that our 4 kids 19... More

Let's face it: All tripadvisor reviews are guided by expectations. The folks who like a plush America-in-the-wilderness resort aren't looking for the cultural experience of a hut in the jungle. Well, read the reviews for Man-O-War Bay Cottages accordingly. These cottages are located in a small fishing village at the far end of the less developed island in the nation... More

We first came here in the 1970's with our young family and had several great holidays here. Remembering this, my youngest son brought me and two of his children for a few days so that we could enjoy a place of which he has fond memories. These are eco-friendly cottages and initially came as a shock to the children who... More

Cottages have everything you need, lived there for 11 weeks with a group students and loved it. The cottages have a safe on sight for any valuables you may be concerned about, but generally speaking, Charlotteville is one of the safest places in Tobago for the sensible traveller. There's also a security guard in the grounds. Location is within walking... More

First up, a confession. I've visited and stayed sporadically over the last thirty plus years. For those who know the island of Tobago, you'll appreciate the Cottages' fortune has tracked the fortune of the Estate (downward). The principal attraction is the secluded location -on the beach- at Man-o-War Bay between the villages of Charlotteville and Campbellton. A secondary attraction is... More

As a veteran traveler I sometimes feel like I have seen it all, however reality never fails to take a chunk out of my behind....We were drawn to Man O War (not by the name) but by the wonderful location of the cottages at the edge of a verdant rainforest, right on the bay....The best thing about the place and...

I traveled to Tobago for a nature and cultural experience. The Man-O-War cottage was just what I was looking for. I didn't want a sterile Best Western where the locals are trying hard to make us feel like we were still in America. Being on an old plantation, in our own private cottage, with the village people passing by was... More
