Basically, spent 4 weeks backpacking around the islands before going to Uni, living in schools, houses jungles, beach huts and eventually chalets!
Can't really mention Trinidad as where we stayed isn't really open to the public, coz they were basically schools, but I'd totally recommend Store Bay, Pigeon Point and Charlottesville in Tobago.. The best place were the beach huts at Charlottesville
I know that ain't much help but it's better than nothing!
if you like LOUD, rap music with words that are offensive then this is your place. the characters that hang out here are scary, drunk and disgusting. the place has tires lined up on the beach. there's no peaceful spot where you can listen to the sea. there's LOUD blasting bass thumping "music" all night. no rest at this awful hotel.
no pool, no beach even though it's located on the caribbean sea. the beach is not cleaned and is always littered with garbage.
the major drawback to this place is the noise which can be stopped if the management cared about it's guests. service and caring is non-existent.
The second week of our holiday we stayed at the Enchanted Waters hotel. It is a nice 10-room hotel on Shirvan road. They have a lovely small garden, which is even lovelier in the evening, when the beautiful lighting and the waterfall are on. There is also a swimming pool on site, not that big, but adequate. We strongly recommend renting a car, while staying here. It is kind of isolated. Shirvan road runs right next to the hotel so there is some noise. It is not the quietest of locations, but it’s not that bad either. There are animals on the premises too. Two dogs and two cats, but they are all kind and won’t bother you. The staff are very nice and the owner family too.
We stayed in an executive suite, which was big and nicely decorated. They also brought beautiful flowers to our room, when we arrived. Our room was on the third floor and we had a big balcony with an open-air kitchenette. Breakfast wasn’t included in the room rate, but Gourmet Foods supermarket isn’t far and we bought our own breakfast supplies. The kitchenette was in good condition as were all the kettles and other dishes. They also have a ceiling fan on the balcony, which made it more pleasant to sit there. After getting used to the brand new air-con in the Seahorse Inn, the air-con here seemed a bit noisy. However the ceiling fan in our room was so efficient that we didn’t need to use the air-conditioning at night. The executive suite comes with a small Jacuzzi, but we didn’t use it.
Our return flight was only in the evening so we asked to keep our room till we’d have to leave to the airport. They needed our room, so they gave us one on the ground level. It was a standard suite. It was smaller in size than the executive suite and it didn’t have a Jacuzzi, but otherwise it was quite the same. It even had a better shower than the executive suite. If we’d known before, what the rooms are really like, we’d stayed in a standard room. I think it was better value for money. Not that the price difference is that big, but still.
Whoo, was I lucky I didn't have to pay for this one! The Hilton Trinidad is a beautiful hotel in a great location, but if you are not careful you might never leave the hotel to get true Trinidad experiences. The food was incredible, the service too, and some of the best pictures I took there were from their outdoor hallway, connecting the main hotel from the rooms. It is really easy, though, to enjoy the hotel without seeing the city, and unless you are up to a 15 minute walk downtown, it can be difficult to get away from that cushioned atmosphere.
It is the best place in Trinidad to hold a convention. The private party catering is wonderful, as are the conference rooms. It will be under two years of construction starting soon because the building has lasted without much repair since the 60's and its architectual design shows that. The pool is a relaxing place to hang out and there is a bar with staff waiting to take your drink or food orders.
Overall, the Hilton is a great place to spend a vacation but if you are looking for a deeper look into Trinidad culture, keep looking.
You feel like you are living in a garden at this hotel. You wind down a small pathe to the small bungalows that are set in among the tropical plants.
We had a full size bed and a twin size bed, a nice bathroom with hot and cold water.
There was a nice pool.
No view because it in inland from the beach.
Valsayn Villa is an enchanting paradise with uncommon luxury and hospitality. Ideally located 15 minutes from the airport. Car rentals and taxi services are available. Valpark and Grand Bazaar Shopping Plazas are within walking distance. Air-conditioned rooms with cable TV, private bath and showers with hot and cold water. You can enjoy the natural surroundings of tropical flowers and exotic birds as you relax poolside or at the jacuzzi.
There is a very nice pool and lovely flowers around the house.
The owner took us on some great tours while we were there.
A wonderful Caribbean hideaway providing authentic Tobago flavour... at Ocean Point Apartment Hotel. They have exceptionally clean and cozy studio units and suites with kitchenettes, oversized balconies with swaying hammocks, a romantic kidney-shaped pool, a delightful open-air garden restaurant !
Just eight minutes drive away from the airport, two minutes walk away from Tobago's longest beach, and right next to a PGA designed Championship Golf Course!
The modest Cocrico Inn is in Plymouth has clean air con rooms with showers. Ours had a balcony from where we watched the locals go about their everyday life.
It has a small pool. The dining room is simple, no fancy tables here, but they serve some of the best food on the island.
A short walk will take you by large tropiocal plants and to a small beach.
This is where we stayed on our first trip to Tobago and it remains a favorite.
It is on a private cove north of Speyside.
You can walk on the beach, go for a walk in the rainforest behind to look for birds, go snorkeling or diving, or go over to Little Tobago.
A very relaxing place to stay.
There are great views out across the sea.
A good restaurant, a dive shop, and pretty grounds.
The cocrico's come every morning to entertain you.
Owners are very personable.
The location at Stonehaven beach was magnificent; you could listen to the sound of the waves at night. The only minus about the location is that it is kind of isolated and you need a car if you don’t want to rely on taxis. On the other hand, the small village of Black Rock is just around the corner with some small shops to buy the basic things. There was quite a lot of noise from the bar and the restaurant in the evenings and that might bother someone. But the noise always ended before midnight so it won’t keep you up all night. The staff at the hotel was nice, especially at the bar and at the office.
The rooms were big and airy and were kept very clean. The interior was made of teak wood, which was beautiful, but other wise the décor was quite plain. The rooms had cable-TV, but no phones. The biggest minus was that they don’t have fridge in the room. The air-conditioning was really good and very quiet and if I understood correctly, they had just renewed them. There was also a ceiling fan. We had a veranda and a separate balcony. They were both with chairs and tables and both overlooking the beach and the restaurant, which was nice, because you got beautiful views of the sunset. Beach towels were also provided.
Rates include cooked breakfast (not buffet), which isn’t that big but adequate and got you started for the day. They have fruit, toast, eggs and bacon or fish. I don’t usually eat toast with jam, but I really liked the pineapple jam they had.
All in all, we had a pleasant stay there and would recommend The Seahorse Inn to others, who appreciate the intimacy of a small hotel and don’t miss the hustle and bustle or the services of a big resort hotel. However I wouldn’t recommend the Seahorse Inn to people, who are physically challenged, because there are a lot of steps and all of the rooms are on the second floor.
We had a really nice stay here, some of the things included were free internet which was hard to find in Tobago, pool, Resturant, bar and a casino next door
The views were amazing you could sit on the pool deck and watch the sun go down with a cold brew from the bar. The crown point beach was about a 1 min walk away which I thought was the best beach on the island.
The Hilton in Port of Spain has a very Seventies feeling to it, but since it is located in the hills, it offers excellent views of Port os Spain. It also has a nice swimming pool and a very good restaurant.
There are few business and tourist hotels in Port of Spain, and the Hilton is one of the better ones, without a doubt.
Clean and friendly hotel.
The hotel stands on the beach with the most amazing view. Pelicans flying past the room in the morning and the sunsets are colourful to say the least.
The new pool is the biggest on the island and is excellent.
We loved this place. It functions about the same as the St Kitts Marriott - clean comfortable and reasonably priced base from which to explore a great island.
The beach isn't that great as there are far better in Tobago, but the nighttime views of the city along the coast are nice. The pool is great, the beer is cheap (only a buck a bottle - that has to be a Hilton record), and the architecture is great. It really feels as though you are somewhere really exotic - and I guess you are. It is pretty cool just to hang around in the bars and watch the businessmen do their thing.
You will have to rent a car though to see the rest of the island as nothing is within walking distance, but driving around Tobago is a great time.
We had a very pleasant stay in the villa. You are greeted with a generous basket of fruits, breads, eggs, and other breakfast items. There is a very large patio for lounging, relaxing, and dining. The bedrooms are romantic, with doors that open to a view of the ocean.
The pool is not as big and deep as in most hotels, but the villas provide private access to the beach. When lounging by the pool, you have to try the pina coladas right there at the bar next to the pool.
A washer and dryer in house, with laundry detergent provided. I find this very convenient.
