are three reasons we'll return to The Hummingbird Hotel....Paul and Linda are the other two.
Hummbird was chosed for our Aug 2012 honeymoon as it fit our budget and vacationing style - laid back, homey and easy-does-it. We checked in later than expected because T&T's gold medalist for the javelin throw had returned home from the London Olympics that day, so my husband and I were caught in the pandemonium at Piarco as our connecting flight to Tobago was delayed.
Once we arrived at the hotel to begin our week-long honeymoon in the country-side, Paul checked us in, took us to our room, instructed on the use of the television, answered our questions about meals, the pool, the beach, then left us to our own devices.
Paul is a great cook and accommodated our haphazard meal requests. Joey, the couple's tomcat, loved the smell of freshly grilled fish so he usually joined us for meals. Sparkle, Linda's dog and Joey's tormentor, seemed wiser than me. She sure was not afraid to "throw-down" with Joey....whenever she felt like it! It was amusing to watch. Linda is the relaxed heart of this operation. She was usually seen with Rainbow, the resident parrot hanging out on her shoulder. Rainbow provided two beautiful feathers for my husband and I as parting gifts!
If you're looking to feel like a small family for a short period of time, without ridiculous expectations and a relaxed style, Hummingbird Hotel is a great find!

You get what you pay for. This is a beautiful, small countryside hotel and it is managed that way.
