Bijou Des Caraibes - Reader Reports & Opinion

My family and myself stayed here through the Carnival period of 2014. We are a family of 7. A very quiet, comfortable place, home away from home. What even adds to this, is the warmth and friendliness of the staff and of course the over whelming kindness shown by the owner, Judy. We look forward to staying here again for our annual Carnival vacation, see you again in 2015!

My husband, kids and I stayed a few days at this place, the second of two we stayed in while in Tobago. I spent a lot of time going through the reviews on the first page and comparing with other places (I should have read further down). It was on this basis I chose to stay here but was a lot disappointed. The host was pleasant though and while I am in no position to judge other people's experiences, it seemed that other folks may have had nicer rooms or something but ours, though ok, needs much updating and cleaning. There was someone who 'cleaned' but the bath and toilet area especially, appeared not to have been cleaned since the place opened years ago. The shower was grimy and quite a turn off. The ac in the bedroom is definitely badly positioned. I did not see any phone and the cable offerings were sparse. The kitchen space is a tiny after thought at the back next to a wall with a portion of it having bricks with un-plastered openings which let mosquitoes in. At times too the back area smelt unpleasant from nearby occupiers smoking as well as the dog above. I must say too that the fact that people stayed here years ago and found it lovely does not mean it's that way now and owners of places like these who put themselves out for attracting tourists should think of how they would like to feel when staying away from home and keep their places clean and updated. Overall, the grounds and general area were quiet and ok. Even the pool was a hit with the kids but they did see a frog in there after their last swim (who knows what else was in there before they went in the days before) But it's really the inside where you return to and sleep at night that was important for us especially our kids and we were disappointed.

After 11 years I've been back to my favourite island Tobago and I had the most wonderful time. Thanks to Judy and her staff to make me feel so much at home and comfortible. Her house with all the apartments is very nice located, almost in a bird sanctuary....;)up on the hill. A good idea is to rent a car though to be more flexible. All together a great place and a warm host, who tries everything to make your time being there very special. Thanks again, Judy!!!!

My family had a really good 3 days stay. We were treated like family. The owner freely offered her fruit garden and was very friendly. Surprising at this cost, we had change of towels everyday with daily maid service. The place was very quiet and relaxing. I would recommend to anyone.
