My wife and I spent a week at Top 'O Tobago Villa after an earlier week on Grenada. We selected Top 'O Tobago off the internet, but more importantly, after a telephone call with the manager, Hugh. Hugh's knowledge of the culture, cuisine and natural beauty of the island made for us a wonderful week of relaxation, fun and good food. The accommodations in our cabana were perfect for a relaxing week getting away from the Boston ice and snow. I fly-fished for bonefish on the coral reef flats while my wife read and enjoyed the sun on the beach or poolside. We had a rental car and took many adventure trips (always with Hugh's custom drafted maps) all over the island for hikes, birdwatching and the wonderful cuisine of the island’s diverse fruit/vegetables and seafood. Hugh was like having your own travel consultant traveling with you - always available for recommendations but never in the way. The natural beauty of the Villa mellows you out from day 1. We are coming back next year to have Hugh meet us at the airport and do it all over again.
