“We Loved it!”
Reviewed April 29, 2009

Been to many fancy hotels and resorts but you will never get this much fun and relaxation and kindness for your money elsewhere! The beach was small but we swam and snorkelled there. Lots of activities and even nicer beaches nearby...rent a car.........you will have more fun! Snorkelling and scuba was enjoyed and superb underwater scenery, Big Bubba is a well experienced and very professional teacher. Elvira's rum punch was exceptional, tasted better than the $9 ones on Royal Caribbean cruise lines. My children LOVED the play ground and play house, my husband and I even got on the gigantic seesaw and laughed like we were kids again! I hope it never breaks! Loved the location, though near airport not many planes daily, lovely pier to walk out and fish (the lend out free rods!), loved the birds, the view, the sauna, the hidden hottubs and most of all the quietness. No vendors harassing you like in Mexico and the food is delicious and would not make you sick. We ate mostly local foods except for some pizza. I recommend that everyone try the local foods and eat lots of healthy fish! Skip the steak for once!

The tours were fun, and we especially enjoyed the glass bottom boat rides and jet skis and the Princess boat tour. The Nylon Pool is amazing, being able to stand in the middle of the ocean, it is like a huge kiddie pool but with no land nearby! I did feel 10 years younger after Tobago, and my skin glowed for weeks! My boys went crazy jumpin off the boat into the "pool". I also loved that they had so many extra beds in the villas, we rented two, but could have actually stayed in one (all 7 of us!). It even had a trundle under the twin beds! My only regret is that I could not have stayed longer, I will miss the African drums, the game nights, the free use of grills, rods, snorkelling gear, tennis gear (small court but fun).................YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE ANYTHING OTHER THAN CLOTHES AND YOURSELF ! They were not kidding about that little gift shop..........IT HAS EVERYTHING.......how, I do not know!!!! Utensils and towels of every kind, the kitchen has everything like back at home, you can make cookies from scratch in this kitchen! Blenders, mixers, pizza trays...the works!

Loved all the beaches and we sure did go to ALL........even a long drive to Parlatuvier beach and Englishman's Bay (was on Travel Chanel top 10 so I had to go!). Worth the drive, loveD the rawness of the Island! If you want fancy resorts , with annoying waiters, tons of beggers and fake cemented waterfalls try Jamaica! TOBAGO IS UNTOUCHED AND GORGEOUS AND I HOPE IT STAYS THAT WAY!

ps: After showing our friends and family our Tobago videos and underwater shots....................we now have about 16 persons going this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we come TOBAGO! (we had originally planned to go back to Punta Cana, DR but this trip cost us less and has more tours planned!) See you soon Sandy Point Villas :)

My father and I went to Tobago and we both agree this is the best place we have ever visited. And we both travel all over the world. The staff was the friendliest staff I have ever encountered. The whole staff. My dad dove 5 days ( there is a dive shop on site). The prices were very reasonable and the food was amazing. The club itself has entertainment and activities and the resort is near many things if you decide to go off site. We loved it so much that we have already reserved a week for next April. They also have the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see anywhere. Simply paradise!!!!!!!!!

Best things about resort - The minimart had lots to chose from, including eggs and fresh fruit and veggies. Prices were reasonable. Elvira's rum punch by the pool twice a week.
It is only a short walk to Store Bay beach. Very nice beach - great for swimming.
The resort has a playground for the kids and the pool has a slide. You can sit at the beach with no worries about vendors ..but you can't really swim there. We felt very safe -- in fact since we were there during carnival they had extra security on site 24 hours. There seems to be some security around all the time, a safe in the room and plenty of locks on the doors
The staff is friendly and helpful. The resort offers internet service -- for a fee - by the hour, day or week - wireless if you have a laptop which worked fine the first week but I was constantly losing their connection the second week.

The resort is sandwiched between a hotel (?) and the Sandy Point Villas .... don't be confused - this one is an RCI Timeshare.

Best attractions or restaurants nearby - We had dinner at the small restaurant onsite many times (run by two local woman who cooked everything) - we enjoyed the fish dinner with lots of veggies and potatoes. Baked, not fried -- thank you very much! The ribs on Thursday are YUMMY!

The shuttle from Crown point airport to the resort is only about $1 US pp .. I made arrangements via email to be picked up...gave them our arrival time, but the shuttle only arrived because he was picking up someone else! They do seem to keep track on a board in the office though so maybe it was because we arrived a day late -- missed the orientation and welcome breakfast (but attended both the second week and had a nice local free breakfast with Elvira). Elvira gave us our own private orientation and we booked several tours.

We had a one bedroom loft. As with many timeshares, they had an inventory list that they asked you to verify. Not an unusual requirement for the smaller timeshares because they have to keep up with the inventory. (and apparently because people "borrow" or break things). Plenty of room for two people - even a family of four. If you are expecting a Marriott or Hilton resort - you will be very disappointed. But if you are looking for a friendly resort run by the locals and owned by the members, this will fit your needs nicely. Since this is apparently the ONLY timeshare on Tobago, it is rated Silver Crown. I would give it a Resort of International Distinction, but not much higher. We have stayed at everything from a Marriott and Embassy Suites to the smallest hotel unit possible and everything in between and this is among the nicest of the resorts we have stayed in on the smaller scale. Everyone here is friendly and helpful.

It is very close to the airport with planes arriving at 6 am .. so you will hear some noise mostly from the prop planes. I walked every morning on the airport perimeter road.

Trip to rainforest. We had a great time -- just the two of us with Leroy - so he took us on a modified route to see more of the island. We were not able to get any snorkeling in because it kept raining. We had a late lunch at the Riverside Restaurant - fish or chicken - it was very tasty - we also had Carib - the Shandy Sorrel was my favorite - tastes like a baked, candied apple..yum. Not sure this trip was worth the $75 US pp, even if we had been able to snorkel.

Trip to Speyside - drove the windward side with Leroy. Were not able to do the glass bottom boat trip because they were closed due to the weather. But we ate at Jemma's Treehouse restaurant - yummy local food - had fish again. Also visited the Argyl Falls - a short walk in - then a climb up for those who want more adventure. We didn't - and did not swim in the pool although the rumor is that if you do you will be ten years younger. Humm. Not sure this was worth the $75 US pp, even if we had been able to snorkel.

Made the mistake of taking a bus to Scarborough $2tt per ticket but the buses only come once an hour .. and even if you are waiting at a bus stop, if you don't stick your hand out - the bus will drive right on by. Even worse -- if the bus is full, it will drive by even if you DO have your hand out. The buses are actually very nice, with AC and curtains to block out the sun...probably because not many people actually get on one..haha Make sure you buy your tickets ahead of time .. they won't let you on with cash. We saw alot of people paying for rides -- you stick out your hand and someone stops to pick you up. apparently there is one signal for a paying rider and one for a true hitchhiker. We did not try that out! Take a taxi for $6tt!!

Went on the mini-tour for $10 US pp. Elvira drove us around to various forts and past some of the local sites that we had not seen on our previous tours. So now we have seen Tobago from one end to the other - crown Point to Charlotteville, and from one side to the other -- Scarborough to Plymouth.

We won one free dive lesson with Big Dougie - (otherwise $70 US pp - OR get certified for $450 US pp) - decided diving was not my thing.

Trip to Arnos Vale to watch the birds and have tea $25 US pp. It was wonderful to see all the different birds, including several varieties of hummers. We went crazy taking pictures.

Trip on Tobago Princess - 4 hours $55 US pp This trip was very pleasant and the lunch was very good ... chicken, swordfish, salad, rice and potato salad. We went to the nylon pool where you could stand in waist deep water and two reefs where you could snorkel. Lunch was at a quiet beach called no mans land. The rum punch was flowing from start to finish. Taxi was provided to and from the boat. The ship was kind of a houseboat shape ... with plenty of room inside and out.

Stayed at Sandy Point BC from Feb 25-28 2009. We stayed in an efficiency unit which sleeps 4-5. I really liked this property. Rooms Clean; Staff Friendly; Hotel Grounds well maintained; Great Bar area. Bartender was knowledgable in mixing all types of drinks. Only had breakfast at the restaurant but the food was good and not overly expensive based on the area. We arrived before the check in time of 3PM and were allowed full use of the property until our room was ready. As well our flight was much later than the check out time of 10AM but again we were allowed to use the property after check out. Yes the inventory process guest must undertake at the start of the stay is long, but not a big deal.

Would definitely stay here again and plan to next year.

Myself and 5 friends went there recently and the problems started even before we got to the 'resort'.
The shuttle we booked was $5tt per person and the driver was impatient, he wouldnt wait for 2 minutes and drove off so we had to make our own way there, which isnt far, but with luggage some could stuggle.
the receptionist wasnt even helpful as we called her and she said she would re-send the shuttle but we would have to pay again...
then when we got there, she said she was sorry, with a nice smile on her face....
the rooms were a little cramped but clean, the bar service at first was terrible, it picked up a little, the last residents garbage was still in the bin the whole room stank, but after we got them to remove it that was the last problem with the room.
housekeeepers were quite unfrindly and like someone else said, the hot tubs were shut at 11...
oh, and if you stay there, make sure and leave all the towels folded up neatly in the cupboard as they check them daily to make sure non are missing.

Management is totally bias,they suddenly created new rules,which only applied to us,we were forced to pay for a six persons apartment when we already paid for a 4 person,we had to pay the difference which was quite alot and we had 2 empty space ,this was complete robbery.Also their check out time is 10.00am which is ridiculous,upon check in there is a long list of items to check which takes forever.Also there is no privacy because staff is always on your back watching your every move,it not a place i would recommend for a family vacation.

  • Liked — lovely hot tubs and pool
  • Disliked — T o much rules!

Being a time share owner, this was our least desirable place to stay. I'd rate it maybe 3 star. People were wonderful, accomadation Fair, Restraunt poor and expensive. Don't do the BBQ mid week. Also forget the glassbottom boat tour that never went out for rough waters, no discount. Arygle Falls was wonderful. Tabago Princess Boat cruise was well worth the money, a 2/1 deal, very nice people.
