I recently spent a week here with my son and his family. We were returning after a previous visit 3 years ago and it was every bit as lovely as we had remembered. Its in a remote part of the island which is quite unspoilt and perfect for a relaxing holiday. Bit of a trek to get there as its...

This hotel and diving resort offer their services prompt and great,. AND. They accept VISA which is rare on Tobago. A bit pricy the hotel . Lobster is sold without its claws. Diven excellent value. Other diving centers can be a bit of a rip off.

Blue Waters Inn is situated right on the water in Speyside, Tobago. The atmosphere is open, clean and simple yet elegant. Our room was very orderly and maintained a nice, consistent feeling which is sometimes hard to find in the Caribbean. We could count on it being cleaned daily, towels stocked, etc. The staff, especially at the front desk and...

We loved this hotel, though I would have liked a downstairs room with a view - the sea was almost totally blocked out from our upstairs balcony (Room 32) by an enormous tree. The food was beautifully cooked and portions good, and the service in the restaurant and bar was excellent - staff frequently apologised for the wait when there...

We recently visited the Blue Waters Inn while touring Tobago. It's located on a very nice beach with snorkeling from the shore. Snorkeling tour boats leave from the pier to Angel Reef. The grounds are very nice and include an infinity pool. We didn't stay but the rooms, and particularly the villas, looked very nice. Most rooms appear to be...

We visited there to have lunch for our anniversary and encountered such a pleasant and warm staff name Erica; she made us feel so welcome that we decided to spend the night. While checking in we thought there was a slight delay to our room, only to realize that Keda and Kiome had surprised us with a wonderfully decorated room...

Good bits - Erika is an asset to the hotel and should in our opinion be in a position of more responsibility - like in reception or even management. Erika works in the dining room and made our holiday much more enjoyable. The attitude of the staff can have a huge influence on guests’ enjoyment of their time in the...

Dear Guest - many thanks for your very detailed review. And thanks for your praise for several of our restaurant staff. There are lots of points we have taken on board and I understand a gesture of goodwill has been made in relation to the lack of full sea view and the other niggles you encountered. Any future groups going...

We stopped here for lunch while driving around the island. It is in a nice, secluded location, down a steep winding road. The view is really good here. We ordered some lunch, and then decided to move inside as the wind was really strong - I was blown backward on the jetty - so we informed the staff that we...

Dear Georgina - thanks for stopping by for lunch. The wind can come off the sea so we try to accommodate guests in the more sheltered parts of our beachfront restaurant. Sorry you found your lunch disappointing - the vast majority of reviews praise the food and the service so I am not sure where we did not meet your...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Blue Waters Inn. The location is to die for, right on the beach with the mangrove trees being part of the hotel. It has beautiful hotel grounds which are very well tended. My room (23) was excellent, nice bed, excellent bathroom with a nice shower and loads of hot water. All the staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With just 38 guest rooms and bungalows, Blue Waters Inn sits in 42 acres of tropical gardens directly on the beach at Batteaux Bay, Speyside, Tobago. Getting to us takes approximately 85 minutes from the airport. Speyside is super relaxed with quick access to the Main Ridge rainforest and the key underwater sites of the island. Twitchers and divers / snorkellers are very well catered for and the hotel is perfect for those wishing to simply switch off and enjoy the hotels tranquil location. The beach shelves gently and is considered safe for bathing. Lay by the pool or in the open air jacuzzi and admire the view across Batteaux Bay towards Bird Island and Little Tobago in the near distance. Learn to dive at our 5 star PADI dive centre complete with 2 Newton dive boats or explore the rainforest with one of the local guides. All our rooms are air-conditioned and face the sea. Most offer fabulous sea views and are only a few steps from the sand. The One and Two Bungalows are bigger and offer either one or two bedrooms. These are located a few steps from the beach have a patio. Deluxe Oceanview Studios are also very spacious and have an open plan kitchen / living room. Inter-connecting rooms are available for families needing more space. The fabulous Driftdeck offers dining alfresco with views straight out across the bay whilst the more elegant "Aqua" offers fine cuisine two or more nights per week. ... more   less
