I have just returned from a week with my son at the Bacolet Beach Club in Tobago and the whole experience was fantastic. Having looked at the reviews here I was slightly nervous as to what we would find but I needn't have worried as this is a hotel to recommend without any hesitation. On arrival we were personally shown to our room not just given keys and directions and that level of care continued throughout our stay. Our room, number 17, was well presented with a modern bathroom, four poster bed with a separate bed for my son and a large balcony overlooking the beach. Every contact we had with any member of staff was always a pleasant one even to the extent that on the day that we left they let us use a room that had been cleaned to get changed meaning that they would have to re-clean it. This was a nice touch and very much appreciated. It suited us that because there are steep steps down to the private beach there were no children at the hotel whilst we were there. You have the choice of laying by the pool or going down to the beach and in case the steps seem too much for you on the way back there is a bar halfway up !!!! Having visited Turks & Caicos, The Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and the Virgin Islands this is definately my favourite Caribbean island. All the locals were friendly, laid back and happy and there was never any hint of danger. We even had call to visit the local health centre and that was as good an experience as you would find in the UK and we weren't charged for the prescriptions for my son. All in all both myself and my son are now big fans of Tobago and this hotel and will be going back as soon as possible. Are there any negatives that I can think of ? I suppose if you are a high flying executive who couldn't posssibly be without the internet for 5 minutes you might want to go to one of the larger Islands and stay in a typical corporate characterless hotel but then if you're that indespensible why are you holidaying in the Caribbean ?
