Reviewed July 31, 2008

I ended up staying at Surfside because the place i was accustomed to booking was full. I generally have no problems with the place, it is CLEAN, PRIVATE, EASY GOING and COMFORTABLE. The people that stay there are friendly as well. For this reason i would not mind going back - BUT - my only beef with the place is the secretary at the front desk. Considering the type of industry that you are in, where you would be meeting persons of different cultures, backgrounds, ethnic groups etc, it would be wise to not come across as though you have issues with either. If you do have a problem along those lines, try to keep it to yourself. The same way you respond openly and freely to a white foreigner, i expect the same for me, especially since i am Trinidadian and you are Tobagonian or even Trini like me lol. Like i said before if you have an issue with race, either leave the industry that you are in, or try to mask it a bit better, as far as i am concerned my money is just as good as any others, otherwise DO NOT TAKE IT.

other than that, i enjoyed my stay at Surfside, i was left to my lonesome, i got rest, caught up on some old movies and roamed when i felt like it. Surfside is very clean - kitchen, bathroom, floor etc, and staff is generally friendly in that sweet tobagonian way. I would stay here again if i had to.

  • Liked — The room, kitchen, toilet and bath were all very clean.

not bad for the price, but just remember that lockdown occurs after 10. one member of my party went out after 10 pm and I was consequently awakened by loud incessant banging on the glass door by security. he asked me to open the door and i refused. i was not at all pleased to be subjected to this this since the person who left was also a guest at the hotel.
i will not be staying there again and will not recommend it to anyone.

  • Liked — leaving
  • Disliked — interaction with staff/ non functional tv, stove/ low water pressure

I have stayed at Surfside 4 times now. It really all depends on what you are looking for. If you want luxuary, surfside is not for you. If you are looking for cheap and cheerful, this is the place to stay.
Yes it is basic, no frills but its clean and functional. I have staying in one of the 2 bedroomed apartments and in one of the single rooms. I felt a little claustrophobic in the single room so wouldn't want to do that again and it feels like you are in a 70's time warp with the furniture, but like i said, it all depends on what you are looking for.
For me personally, i am so in love with this beautiful island paradise, nothing at all could take away from its beauty, serenity and fun.
Perfection for me is: all day on Store Bay, what a beach!!! saunter home around 5pm, eat sleep, shower and then PAAARRRTY!!! The beds have always been comfortable, sheets changed regularly as are the towels. A couple of small pools to relax in for a while after coming from the beach and above all.. very friendly staff.

If you want to save money so you can spend more on having a good time instead of on a place to sleep... surfside every time!!!

A little about this hotel, the bed is very uncomfortable, i am guessing that that matress has been on the bed since this hotel opened, the hotel it is a bit run down physically, management needs to upgrade the facility if they really want persons to return and stay here.

The shower is totally old and rusty, provideing you with dripping water to bathe with.

The green carpet by the stair case it is very smelly, it needs replacing or cleaning.

Complaints were made about noisy persons also vacationing, management did nothing to rectify the situation, so you're up late at night into the morning and then when you finally fall asleep, guess what it is time to open your eyes again.

The standards here needs to be upgraded I don't think until this happens will I ever stay here again.

All ads on this resort (both internet web page and Trinidad and Tobago's yellow pages
) described this place as follows:
+ Larvish Porches
+ Fully equipped luxury apts at guest house rates
+ Swimming Pool
+ Library

In actual fact it was:-
- small outdoor sitting area with battered plastic and metal beach chairs

- Basic accomadations, small kitchette with limited utensils

- 2 5ft deep pool about 15ft in length and 7ft wide (basically a splash pool)

- One room with some books, no childen books.

The cost of a two bedroom apt was TT$500.00 per night, and it does have access to a washing machine (although basic twin tub), but no room to hang clothing, it provides a once daily maid service. And it is close to Store Bay, a really beautiful beach.

If you are going to sight seeing in Tobago, this place has basic accomadations, and since you won't be in very much it's okay to sleep.
The thing that really annoyed me was the fact that they used false advertising, also not to discriminate, but the resort is the Centre in Tobago for Sai Baba worship, this was not advertised and individuals with other strong religious beliefs may find this offensive.
