“Hands down the best spot for a getaway!!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I recently spent a couple of weeks there and found it to be absolutely tranquil and a perfect place for sitting poolside with a book. The staff at the villa are always there to answer your questions and to give advice on sightseeing in the area. You will find reference books about the island as well as a great supply of movies should you want to see one. Each Cabana has everything you need including a beautiful sitting area just outside. I loved renting a car and driving around the island but it was always great driving back up to what felt like my own piece of paradise at the end of the day! What's perfect about this place? Everything!! Well maintained,amazing views at every spot as well as lots of places to explore on and off the grounds!
I want to thank The Bakers as well as Silja, Susan and Zambo for their work and dedication to keep Top O Tobago my favourite holiday destination!

To Camille, Derek, Silja and Susan:
Thank you for a wonderful vacation experience. I will recommend Top O' Tobago to all my friends who are looking for a little rain-forest rest and regeneration. Special memories include bird song every morning and warm evenings by the poolside. We appreciated that you were always available to ensure everything we needed was readily at hand from groceries in the fridge to maps and local guides. And thank you also for sharing freely your personal knowledge of Tobago so that we first-time visitors could experience everything this interesting and storied island has to offer.

We were greeted at check in by Silja the manageress who is lovely and very helpful, nothing is a problem.

My wife & I stayed in Cabana 3 which is furthest from the main villa and the pool which means you are 1 minute away from the pool instead of 45 seconds. All three of the Cabana's look nice and they have everything you could need except an oven (which isn't the end of the world), but they do have a grill, toaster, microwave, coffe maker, kettle, and big fridge with a good sized freezer section.

There are a couple of BBQ grills for you to use and there was charcoal there as well. They have a heating ring to start the charcoal burning which is very effective and quick so don't leave it for too long to get going or when you get back there will be a raging fire. We had a few nice BBQ's with a couple of cold beers, nothing better.
There is an excellent guide in the room which tells you were you can buy food etc or Silja or the owners will point you in the right direction.

The TV has a good selection of cable channels and there is a good libarary of complementary DVD's if you want to watch them.

There are cool boxes available to take to the beach, along with snorkelling gear and beach towels.

The grounds are really nice with loads of trees and birds and if you put a bit of bread or fruit on the railing outside in the shaded sitting area of your Cabana you will most likely get a Mot Mot or two paying you a visit.

The owners (Derek and Camille) were staying in the villa and they are very nice people with no airs and graces, it was a pleasure to meet them.

The place in on the top of hill with great views all around and ideally you need a car although I believe they will pick you up from the airport free of charge and even get you some provisions in if you ask so you do without one if you really don't want to drive.

The pool and pool area is lovely with plenty of good quality beds etc, in fact the whole place has been done to a very high standard and you won't want to go out.

Everything about Top O Tobago was perfect for us and we cannot recommend it highly enough if you like to do your own thing.

Room Tip: Take ear plugs, the birds would awaken the dead, that goes for the whole of Tobago. All three Cabana...

I just returned 2 weeks ago from 15 days at Top O Tobago. What a great place to stay! The Cabanas (the entire Villa) are very well maintained and comfortable, the staff very friendly and helpful. I will definitely return. If you are looking for a nice, comfortable, clean, relaxing place to stay in Tobago, Top O Tobago is the place!

We have stayed at Top O Tobago frequently over the years, when we first discovered this unique place we fell in love with it's natural beauty and the very relaxed atmosphere with all the comforts, fantastic views and very friendly and helpful manager. You can use it as a base to explore Tobago and it's fantastic beaches and rain forest or just relax by the pool in a hammock and watch the humming birds, the snorkeling at Arnes Vale, a 10 min walk, is exceptional. The gardens are full of fruit trees and wonderfully tropical.
When we got married in Tobago our family stayed at Top O Tobago for 3 weeks and had a great time.
We love this place and hope to return over and over again.

Room Tip: There is a main house with 2 bedrooms and a den and 3 cabanas to choose from.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Top O Tobago for a week and we loved every second of it. If we didn't have to return home for work we would have stayed longer. The views are picturesque, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the rooms are comfortable. We loved swimming in the clean pool during the sunny days and at night when the stars are shinny brighter than we have ever seen. Camille and Derek and the rest of the staff are very accomadating and welcoming, which makes you feel like your at home. I highly reccommend Top O Tobago to anyone who is looking to travel to Tobago.

My wife and I recently spent two weeks in Tobago with our 1-year old son. We spent 6 nights at Top O' Tobago and had a fantastic stay. We would highly recommend staying at Top O' Tobago to anyone who is visiting the island. Here are the highlights:

- Gorgeous hilltop setting with landscaped grounds and a beautiful pool at the very top with 360 degree views. Some days, all we wanted to do was hang out by the pool. On hot days, the hilltop location is great as it gets a light breeze.
- Fantastic hospitality from the owners (Camille and Derek) and the manager (Silja). We felt extremely welcome and they were full of tips on things to see and do. They also went above and beyond to help us when our son got an ear infection.
- Large and comfortable rooms (we stayed in one of the cabanas). It had its own private veranda as well as a kitchenette, great shower, and cable TV.
- Great overall location - not too far from Crown Point and the airport, but also not too close, and well positioned for exploring farther up the Leeward Coast. There are also some great beaches very nearby - i.e. a short walk or drive.
- Perfect for families, but would also be perfect for couples.

Overall, we would highly recommend Top O' Tobago and we will certainly stay there on our next trip to Tobago!
