A group of us were looking for accomodations on Tobago after attending the wedding of a friend in Trinidad. We could find no reviews on Woods so we took our chances because the price was right at about 15 GBP per night and it was available at the last minute.
Woods is in the main area near the airport. Less than 5 minute walk from Store Bay Beach and Pidgeon Point and some very good resturants.
The guest house in itself is not bad. It was not a castle, (smile), but a very basic apartments with a bedroom, bathroom, a small table and chair set. A kitchen with a stove, fridge, sink, and basic cutlery and dinner plates.
There was no microwave which would have come in handy since we usually had left overs from eating in the many resturants that are a one minute walk away.
One issue we did have.....
Althought the place itself is not so bad, They could have kept it cleaner.
Upon first glance with the beds nicely made and the floor cleaned, it looked clean enough.
Upon further inspection, one of the guys in our party found a make up case, a beer bottle, and some not so fresh panties under his bed!!!
It was like they cleaned the rest of the place but never looked under the bed!!!
So that was my gripe.
The upstair aparments had a little balcony, which was nice to sit out on at night.
For those downstairs, there was a nice patio on the front of the building with metal pation furniture and 2 big swinging lawn chairs big enough for a few people to fit on.
All in all it was not a bad experience.
If you are looking for the Hyatt this is not your cuppa tea.
If you are looking for a basic inexpensive place in the heart of the action with 2 great beaches near by, then Woods Castle cannot be beat!
Just make sure you look under the bed!
