Bananaquit - Reader Reports & Opinion
Bananaquit Apartments....any Info Please
Will be traveling to TOBAGO for the first time (arrive in the morning of the 7th Feb.)
I have been to lots of sites trying to be prepared....we would like to stay at a few spots....but because we arrive on the first day of Carnival....
we booked for a few nights at the Bananaquit. The site I found this place on showed pics of the room, and it seemed quite nice. I talked to the lady (Elaine Best) and she seemed very nice. It is close to beaches, and stores...so until we get familiar with surroundings, I thought this place would be nice. Would appreciate any info on the place thanks
Also, I would like to know what would be an inexpensive treat to take along to give to people and children we meet...what have you heard that they would like? (being from Canada, when I was in Mexico, the children liked Canadian stickers, pins, and gum.)
Any feedback on this would be great!
Banaquit Crown Point
We stayed there at the beginning and end of our holiday. It is perfect as a base - clean,a/c, nice kitchen and cable TV overlooking a nice garden. The owners are unobtrusive - they actually reduced our room rate when we arrived from $50 per night to $35! That hasn't happened to us before!
Bananaquit is about 5 minutes walk from Store Bay Beach and 4 minutes walk from the airport. Perfect. We checked in with our bags at 4.00pm then went back to BQ and relaxed before boarding at 6.40pm. Far better than hanging around the airport for hours - they didn't charge us extra either!
Have been checking out the forum for a while for any thoughts on Bananaquit, as we've booked a couple of weeks there at the end of August. Does anyone have any experience of this property? From the email communciation I've had with them, everything sounds positive!
We're so looking forward to this holiday!
