Our flight landed just after noon so we were a bit early for our reservation of 2 weeks. (Nov. - Dec. 2011). The folks at the front desk were so very accommodating.... they set us up in a better suite right away than we had booked at no extra charge!
The room was next to the beautiful gardens on the 2nd floor overlooking the massive calabash tree and was fully stocked and very comfortable. A/C worked very well and the housekeeping staff were friendly and did a very good job of keeping this clean and tidy..
The pools and hot tubs were awesome...clean and just the right temp. (as it averaged 84 degrees every day we were on the fantastic Island of Tobago) so the water was very welcome. We took a wonderful trip through town with Alvira who showed us where she lives and ...the little pink house she hopes to have one day! I knocked another one off of my bucket list by engaging "BIG DOUGGIE" and his staff at the dive shop to take me through my deep water scuba certification. These guys are amazing! i would recommend them to anyone.... we dove numerous times with folks from Finland and the UK and made many, many friends! Pauline is a lovely Jamaican lady who runs the restaurant and although a bit pricey, the food is amazing and Pauline is a charm.... what a wonderful person and friend!
Nightly entertainment was great and by the end of week 1, we had a dinner party in our suite for 10 including friends we had made at the resort and a couple of local chaps. Dillon is an artist that you MUST get to meet.... paintings he did for us have a place of honour in our home. The second week, we booked the sea-side villa - too big for the 2 of us but what a place! The sea literally washes up under your bedroom and you step out of your front door onto the sand.... it doesn't get any better than this!
We went on may tours and Alvira even took me shopping for a new camera on her way home one day.... shopping is easy.... the place is very safe. We met a couple of great guys from the states who took us around the island in their rented jeep...takes a bit of getting used to driving on the LHS of the road but a super adventure all in all!
If you are looking for 5 star, high-end US style resort life with diamond everything and tons of night life.... don't go to Tobago at all...never mind the Beach Club. However, if you want totally unwind in a non-touristy place where the people's smiles and hearts are as warm as the sunshine.... then this is the place for you. We are booking again this coming year at the same time.....We can't wait!
