Bananaquit - Reader Reports & Opinion

Nice, clean, comfortable and quiet. Aircon and Satellite TV were a nice bonus at 'Guest house prices' Ideally situated for Store Bay, a short walk to Pigeon point and only a couple of minutes walk to the airport. A good place to start or finish your tour of Tobago.

Whenever I travel I rely a lot on reviews of places, and before traveling to Tobago I read up many reviews on this guesthouse and they were decent.We had a huge family reunion in Tobago in July and we reserved about 9 rooms at Bananaquit but was so horribly disappointed when we arrived.
To start with one of the "amenities" in the room is bug spray and you will end up using this amenity more than any other amenity because there are little roaches all over the rooms - even on the bed! This was in all of the rooms!
Me and my family members are not picky travelers but we expect at minimum a clean, roach free room. It was such an embarassment having my family members stay here, and the next day we had to find all of them different accomodations, which was quite stressful, but necessary.
In the end we got great rates for them at Tropikist and Grand Courlan, and we do all laugh about that first night now and refer to Bananaquit as Bananapit!

We wanted something a little private yet cozy and found just that within the Bananaquit. It was close to Shore Bay and the area was very busy.
The suite was clean, our maid was extremely friendly not to mention Giselle whom helped us with maps, arranging a car service and made our stay a memorable one.
I love the feeling of it not being busy, and it was private enough where you didn't see the other guest.
Definitely will stay there again when I return to Tobago.
