At Last Holiday Apartments - Reader Reports & Opinion
Elke Hochmueller from Austria visited in February 2015 and awarded
In February we spent a wonderful week at Loraine's At Last Holiday Apartments. Our apartment was large and spacious, consisted of a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room, an air-conditioned bedroom, and a large bathroom.
All apartments are facing the beach. You can hear the waves when sitting in the living room or eating your breakfast in the kitchen. But, you never hear any sound from your neighbours in the other apartments.
There is a swimming pool which we used after our snorkeling trips in the evening. You can stroll along Turtle Beach or snorkel from the left of Turtle Beach around the rocks towards Grafton Bay. On our first evening we sighted a huge Stingray near the beach.
And, the area seems to be free from mosquitoes and sandflies: The week before we spent at Charlotteville and arrived at Loraine's with mosquito & sandfly bites almost all over. But, here we enjoyed the evenings in the garden and even needed no repellent at all.
Loraine is doing most of the maintenance work by her own; I think, that is why everything (including also the beautiful garden) is so neat and clean.
Thank you very much Loraine and give a hug to Mandy!

Jason and I arrived on New Years Day to At Last Holiday Apartments and were openly welcomed by Loraine. She gave us a tour of our apartment and we were pleasantly surprised at how lovely the accommodations were for the price! A thrifty travelers paradise! The apartment was very spacious and had everything we needed. It was great having a kitchen to cook in and we prepared many meals ourselves. The pool was beautiful and a great place to relax during the day. Loraine is a sweetheart and was a great host. She directed us to local markets and restaurants for food and offered us rides to local beaches when she was traveling there herself. She helped us set up a rental car too. The location of the apartments in Black Rock is great-- walking distance from some of the most beautiful beaches in Tobago. We had a wonderful stay and recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, safe, spacious, clean, and affordable place to stay! We would love to go back some day!

My wife and I have just returned to the UK on 10th January 2015 after a fabulous two week stay at the At Last Holiday Apartments, Black Rock. The apartment was exactly what we expected, the large pool was fantastic and the owner Loraine is the perfect host. The location, right on the seafront is ideal and within a five minute walk of what we consider to be the best beach on the island, Turtle Beach.
Security in the apartment and grounds is very good with Mandy, Loraine’s dog, completing the final touch without bothering guests.
We hired a car for the two weeks and toured the island, we also found it essential for getting provisions, visiting restaurants, Pigeon Point, etc.
We have no hesitation in recommending Loraine’s Apartments and Tobago for a lovely holiday.

At Last H A is a lovely place offering quite good quality for your money. I found it on MyTobago and visited with my bf for 6 days right after Christmas. We wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment had everything to meet both our requirements - beach front, pool, TV, AC, wifi & full kitchen. Extra surprises were how clean the place is kept, the large and spacious bathroom, the provision of a coffee maker on request and the warmth of host Loraine. With our car we were near enough to the places we wanted to reach - our friends at Grafton, Penny Savers grocery (and Morshead for tomatoes as everyone else was out), Scarborough, the mall/movies, Store Bay/Pigeon Pt etc. and Waze showed us alternatives to the C N Highway when we felt adventurous. This isn't a 5 star resort but in the areas that matter - At Last definitely delivers. I would return and recommend! For all those who mentioned the dogs, unfortunately one has passed but the remaining buddy (Mandy?) keeps a watchful eye day and night :) which a paranoid Trini mind appreciates although we did not feel unsafe.

Had a great 5 day stay at the LAST HOLIDAY APARTMENTS. The place was clean and neat. Loraine was a very good host allowing us to check in early.
I would definitely stay here again.
