I chanced upon Bijou des Caraibes after a few internet searches looking for places to stay in Tobago for a week's holiday with my husband, 2-year old and friend from the UK, and I'm very glad I did. Living in Trinidad. we've been to Tobago many times, but this was one of the nicest places we've stayed in - secluded and quiet, with a lovely garden full of flowers and birds, a good sized pool, adequate security and an excellent location, just a couple of minutes' drive from Mount Irving, Buccoo, Pleasant Prospect etc - our favourite part of western Tobago. The two-bedroom apartment we stayed in was perfect for our group - clean, bright, airy and very reasonably priced, plus it overlooked the pool and had a couple of tables outside which were great for eating breakfast or dinner outdoors. Owner Judy went out of her way to accommodate us, adding a cot to the larger bedroom for our son, plus baby bath which he loved, and some cool little beach toys, too (all without being asked, which was really nice). She was always welcoming and friendly, on hand for advice on restaurants and places to go, and made us feel as though we were "coming home" to a place we'd visited many times before. Little things like a line to hang up swimming things, use of a washing machine and efficient, friendly cleaning staff also enhanced our stay. I'm only sad she was fully booked the next time we tried to come across for the weekend.
