#2 of 2 B&Bs / Inns in Bacolet Bay
Here's a little secret only a few people know about: if you're planning a trip to Tobago, one of the most charming hotels is Half Moon Blue Hotel at the Donkey Cart House. Nestled in gardens of palms, bamboo and bougainvillea, the hotel's suites lay beneath the hill of historical Fort George. Eight extra spacious suites and one spectacular Penthouse loft overlook the horizon, the half moon shaped Bacolet Bay and the overflow swimming pool where midnight swims are a must! The decor sets your mood for serene and lazy days and romantic exotic nights. These colonial styled suites with jalousied windows and doors open onto verandas with rattan chaise-lounges, creating the perfect spot for what ever your heart desires like that best seller you have been dying to read. On a clear day you can see the sister isle of Trinidad. These breathtaking panoramic views with their romantic surf washed coves can be seen from our balconies with the beach only a 2 minute trot away.

On our vacation at this hotel in January, we stayed in one of the Junior Penthouse on the second floor, and I must say, the view was breathtaking. The view from our balcony over look the ocean, lush vegetation and a glimpse of the capital, Scarborough. The staff were friendly and we felt like we were amongst family. We also spend a lot of time at the private beach across the street at their sister hotel. This hotel is ideal if you're looking to get away from busy city life.

Half Moon Blue is a lovely little hotel. The view is stunning. The infinity pool looks out over the ocean also. The only downside to this property is it is on a hill. You have to climb the driveway hill then go up a lot of stairs. You have use of the pool and beach across the street but again there are many stairs to the beach. The food is excellent, breakfast is included and then the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and beach bar is open for lunch and dinner. Rooms are a little rustic but clean and comfortable. If you are in good physical condition it is a nice retreat.

The place looks good, though the furniture was not to my taste. My room had two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a sitting area, frig, electric kettle and cCLEAN also a balcony looking out over the water 3 chaises. BUT the door to the room had a bolt but didn’t lock, no blankets but it took two days for them to get me one. Go buy more blankets!!!! The towels are big and reasonably plush but only got a hand towel halfway through the week and no washcloths. It took more than a day to put me in touch with someone who could book me snorkeling trips and on a one week vacation each day matters. The desk was confused and slow to attend to most questions. The restaurant was ok, but slow and mostly inattentive. Breakfast, again okay but the bacon slices weren’t separated so were very undercooked and no back up pans or pots so when eggs ran out then they cooked more keeping everyone waiting. People outside smoking but no anticipation of the need for an ashtray. If you can keep a laid back, expect nothing attitude then the place is fine but with some serious training of the staff it could be a good place.

I made a reservation on Orbitz for this hotel. I arrive at the hotel to check in and no one was on site. Parking was very difficult on a steep hill and there may have been 10 parking spots that could barely accomadate the number of guests if you could figure out how to get out after you park your car. There was no security guard, no receptionist, no poolman absolutely no one to check you in, provide keys or access to room. The interesting thing is you could walk through the hotel reception area because the doors were open and there was access to the offices just no one on site. I called the telephone number on the hotel web site and no one answered. I walked around the property and called into every opened door and no one answered. i sat in the reception area for 45 minutes and hoped someone would appear in case they were at the hotel party across the street. No one appeared. i had to find alternative hotel accomadations late at night after paying Orbitz for this hotel. i called Orbitz the next day and explained what happened. They kept sending me e mails claiming they could not reach anyone at the hotel because no one answered the phone. Go figure. After 1 week, i got an e mail that the hotel refused to refund the payment. i am contacting my credit card company. I would say to anyone who is thinking of using this hotel. Do not put your money or your life at risk. Staying in an unsecured property where strangers can walk about a secluded hotel is dangerous. You have been warned. Besides the hotel appears run down and is hanging on a thread. Tobago has way too many beautiful hotels to subject yourself to this horrible hospitality and what is nothing more than an old shack wanna be hotel.
