We booked our holiday in Tobago just a few weeks before departure. We went with a company called Golden Holidays who responded quickly to all queries and were very helpful. The flight was with Monarch and both the outward and return journeys were very comfortable. We paid for extra leg room at £40 per person per journey and it was worth it. We not only got more leg room but there was more aisle room where our seats were placed (in two's at the back). The air crew were friendly, the food was ok and the flight went quickly.
The hotel is so close to the airport that you can probably walk it quicker than a taxi takes!! However, there are very few flights (just the island hopper prop planes a few times a day) so it is not noisy. I loved the hotel. It was attractive to look at with lots of gardens, it was on the beach (which is private) and set on a small, very very safe, lagoon. The room was lovely and very clean. The housekeeping is done twice a day. The communal areas were all very clean, the staff were immaculately dressed and very friendly and polite. The food is outstanding. We were booked for bed and breakfast (and the breakfast could keep you going all day) but we often had the buffet lunch which was reasonably priced and delicious. We had eaten so much breakfast and lunch that we usually shared a burger and fries in the evening sitting in the verandah bar looking at the sunset over the Caribbean sea. I am sure that tipping is acceptable but we never felt any kind of pressure to tip and, in fact, almost felt that we might embarrass people by offering a tip.
The area is very quiet. There are some bars but I did not hear any noise from them at nights. Store Bay next to the hotel has lots of little food vending huts selling the delicious crab & dumplin, conch & dumplin, roti's, callaloo and all the other delicious food they have there. It was very reasonably priced with a meal costing around £5. There are boat trips available in Store Bay. The hotel also has excursions on offer and there is a scuba diving place in the hotel. The hotel did not mind at all if you brought in food bought outside and drinks from the mini-mart just across the road.
I would recommend this hotel and island for a quiet and relaxing holiday in the sun. (Be careful of the sun - EVERYBODY got sunburned on the first day even if they were wearing Factor 50 and sitting under the palm trees!) and I will definitely go back again and see more of the island.
