We've travelled a lot and stayed in some amazing places, but Buccament Bay has got to be best for service. It was low season, so not very full, but within a day all the staff knew you by name and and what your likes and preferences are for seating/drinks etc. Everyone says hello and nothing is too much trouble.
I won't cover what other reviews have other than to say that the food truly was excellent, with the food at Jacks being outstanding - the best steak I have ever had (and that's saying something!). Safran did a good spicy curry too in a nice setting amongst the gardens.
We made the most of the activities on offer and went to Rob's fitness classes each morning - we were always the only ones there! The fitness centre is also well equipped for those wanting to do their own thing and work off some of those extra calories!
We really enjoyed the trips we did too: the hike up La Soufriere volcano with David, the extremely knowledgable guide. This is a strenuous hike though and not for the faint-hearted, but well worth it. The Tobago Cays catamaran trip was a good day out - be prepared to get wet (if you sit outside) and sunburned! The resort will pack a lunch for you on day trips. We also did a snorkel kayak tour with Kian from Indigo Dive. He took us through the bat cave - amazing experience - and round to another bay where the ruins of an Eco lodge still exist. There is good snorkelling right off Buccament Bay beach too.
We like to be active on holiday, and there are lots of opportunities for this (tennis, football, yoga, diving, snorkelling, fitness classes, gym, trips), however some people chose to never leave their sunbed, and it's a great place for that too - with a constant and attentive supply of drinks and food and great views to feast your eyes on. The spa is also excellent, for those essential holiday treatments ;-)
Would we go again? Already planning when we can return!
