“Expect convenience and affordability but not luxury.”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

We stayed at Johnston’s apartments from June 9-11, 2011. We needed somewhere to accommodate 6 adults and 1 baby which was close to the airport and right on the beach. It was less than a 5 minute walk to the airport. A car from the airport to the hotel was $35tt. This hotel had everything we needed for a large party. We had rooms 40 and 41, on the 2nd floor. We paid $578tt per room per night. You must pay for your entire stay when you check in. They charge based on the amount of people in the room.

Each apartment in this hotel has an ocean view. Each has a separate bedroom with a queen sized bed and a twin bed. The living room area had 2 twin beds. There was a breakfast bar for eating. The balcony had 2 chairs and a table as well as a lounger. The kitchen had most utensils one might need for cooking, including pots, pans, a kettle, cutlery, plates, mugs, glasses, ice trays, dish soap and sponges. They did not provide a coffee maker. Although we did not cook there, we sanitized and used the plates and cups, which came in handy. You have to request beach towels from the front desk. The linens they provided appeared clean, but some were stained and seemed overused, so you may want to bring your own. Generally the rooms were clean. The bathroom was pretty clean, but we had problems flushing the toilet. Bath towels are only changed every other day. They provide 3L bottled water for $12tt. The front desk closes at 5pm which was a slight inconvenience and the gate to the hotel closes at 11pm, after which you must enter through the Crown Point hotel entrance. Visit the Crown Point Hotel website and the Johnston apartments website for pictures. You have use of all the facilities at the Crown Point Hotel. The grounds are fairly nice, with an ample amount of picnic tables for gatherings.

The beach (Storbay) is literally steps from the hotel entrance. I consider Storbay to be one of the best beaches in Tobago. The hotel is close to several cheap restaurants, including pizza boys, royal castle, rituals (coffee house), church’s chicken. The Crown Point hotel has a restaurant, but is fairly pricey. Breakfast was around $85tt per person and lunch and dinner ranged from $100tt to $250tt. There are also several huts on the beach serving local dishes for $30-$45 per serving. If you are looking for crab and dumplings, we found that you should go early as they do sell out fairly quickly. Miss Esmie’s was the best in our opinion. It’s a 3 minute walk to a mini mart and walking distance to Cruise (a popular local bar) and Shade (a club). There are 2 bars we knew of open during the day at Storbay, one on the beach (above the steps), serving carib and stag for $12tt and another called “the waving gallery” located above the huts, charging $10tt for the same beers. They charge to rent beach chairs and umbrellas. We brought our own fold up chairs which was needed because the sand is very hot. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay. I would most definitely stay at this hotel again, due to the perfect location and price.

I have stayed at Johnston's Apartments on many occasions before with no problems. On my last stay we arrived in Tobago 8.45pm, the office was locked and so was our room. My children had to sit on the floor outside of the apartment while my husband had to run around looking for someone with a key for like an hour. The next day a lot of rain fell, my older daughter slip and hurt her back on their extremely slippery floors (when wet) in the room. We over looked all this until it was time to check out. The time was 10.55am there was a knock on the "house cleaning" I told the lady just give us some time we have to check out. She was extremely rude and said you know you have to be out of here by 11am. We reported all of this in an email to Johnstons not even an acknowlegement much less an apology. I usually recommend this hotel to lots of people after this last stay I would no longer recommend them for they are embarrassing.

I spent a very enjoyable 10 days and would recommend these accommondations to everyone. It is safe secure, steps away from the beach. The rooms are large with a complete kitchen and a separate bedroom. You have access to the amenities at the crown beach point hotel; including the pool and restaurant. Very nice landscaping and sunsets visible from your veranda. Wifi is available but spotty in sections...you may have to move around a bit. Housekeeping and staff very friendly. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would not hesitate to stay there again..

My husband and I traveled here with our 2 year-old last January. What a perfect place! We had an apartment on the second floor, overlooking the gorgeous Store Bay. The complex has a pool, some nice grounds, and direct access to the beach. Our 1 bedroom apartment featured a kitchen and a lovely balcony, where we ate lunch while our daughter was napping. For food options, we usually ate breakfast in the apartment, lunch from one of the kiosks in Store Bay (curry crab and dumplings!), and then went out for dinner. Highly recommend taking a taxi to the larger grocery store to stock up on foods. Love this place and would definitely return! I understand from Trini family that it's difficult to book during school holidays. We were there end of January and got really good prices!

My wife and spent two weeks here in January 2010 and we found the accommodation to be well equipped, spacious and clean, Ann Marie the manager is a charming and helpful person were nothing is too much trouble. The apartments are ideally situated directly overlooking Store Bay beach offering the same delightful views as the very expensive ‘Coco Reef Hotel’ at a fraction of the price and having stayed there it is our opinion that the accommodation at Johnston’s is better.
The facilities of Crown point Hotel are available to Johnston Apartment guests and overall we would highly recommend Johnston’s.
