“Great place !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Personal is very nice, room with wood floor, BFast very good, Wonderful swiming pools, with an access to the beach.
Very close to Scarborough, but the location is very quiet.
A nice place to stay.
The restaurant is a bit expensive for dinner, but very good.
You can rent a car from the hotel, which is very convenient.

Huge room next to the pool with 4 poster bed and flower petals everywhere. Clean & comfortable. Easy walk to secluded inlet (provided you don't mind a few steps). Lovely setting - especially for couples. Very helpful staff. Located in a residential area so very quite but also a bit of a hike to town center/restaurants, etc. Stuck going to hotel's restaurant which has descent food but is overpriced. Would recommend and would stay here.

Booked three nights three days at HMB only stayed one night. The room was dusty and had spiderwebs which was a big turnoff. My wife and I arrived around 8:30pm checked out the next morning. It can be a nice place but it needs updating and renovating. The staff were extremely pleasant, no complaints in this area at all and as soon as we came out of the airport their driver was wating for us with his sign with our names, I thought that was great.

On my way from Antigua to Suriname, I've had to stay for one and half days in Tobago to catch a connecting flight and went to the Half Moon Blue Hotel ...... and I had a very pleasant stay. I got a Junior Suite for the night. The room itself was spacious and extremely clean with high ceiling and a balcony outside, with a great view. The staff members were always very friendly and attentive.

The hotel provides all of the basic amenities. In the room you have A/C; cable TV; free wireless Internet access; an electric kattle to prepare coffee or tea and a; small refrigerator with complimentary bottled cold water); they also a rich breakfast (inclusive with room) and they have a very small but quiet private beach. Nice to relax

Stayed @ hmb for two weeks 5th to 19th July. It was really lovely, we had the pool to ourselfs and got upgraded to junior sweet for the last week which was very cool. I prefer the privacy of the hmb rather than over the road at the bacolet the sister hotel. But some may prefer the bacolet for a bit mote of a modern feel. Hmb is rustic, but clean and nice. Worth getting the upstarts rooms if in your buget. All the staff were really nice and gave some great advice for beaches and snorkeling. Overall had a fab time. Tobago is a pretty chilled place, and felt safe. Have to hire a car or get taxis as the Havana can be a bit pricy every night, but maybe all inclusive or half board would be cheaper. Breakfast included was really good every day. Overall relaxing and lush :) ps all rooms have fridges so you can always have cold drinks ect.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms lovely but cheaper options also ok, and easy acces to the pool all with big balconies...

Every positive thing said here was true, and its on the advice previously stated, i chose my say stay, it was heaven on earth, the only downside was the family that checked in on our last night there. There room was next door and there kids were stampeding like little elephants. Hence it really killed that romantic feeling for me and my husband. Overall though, it was exceptional.

Everyone in my office knows I have been bitten by the travel bug and have been all over the world, so they come to me for advice on vacation destinations. I always say the same thing and its advice that always works. I tell people to go to Tobago.
It far away enough to offer a completely different experience but near enough to avoid complicated travel hassles. It has something to offer every interest and is great for both active vacations and just chilling out. And best of all it has Half Moon Blue. This is a small resort hotel on the shores of the bay and set in a tropical garden. The great rooms, service, facilities and sumptuous food make it the perfect vacation hotel.
