Bijou Des Caraibes - Reader Reports & Opinion
Pamela Gill-Joseph from Trinidad visited in June 2011 and awarded
The location of the place is good, however on a scale of 1-10, we would rate it a 4.
These are some of the reasons.
The apartment we stayed in was a bit claustrophobic. The cooking area is at the back of the room instead of the front, very impractical. I think the layout of the apartment could be revisited to ensure that guests totally enjoy their stay, even though it is not expensive. The a/c unit is old, noisy, badly positioned in the room, and does not oscillate.
The owner needs to go in the room and imagine that they have to stay for 6-7 days.
There was also a large smelly dog roaming the grounds, and the droppings were quite visible to us when we came out of the room.
Another essential thing that was missing was a covered area for the tenants to put wet beach things to dry.
Also, I think that house rules should be posted, it would greatly help the holiday-maker.
The website was misleading. Only one apartment has a view. and there are no waves to be heard.
My husband and I agree, we would not return.

My 3 cousins and I stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment for 4 days in May.
The gardens were very well kept, pool was lovely and the view poolside...spectacular!
The apartment was quite clean and had everything we needed.
The only complaint I had was that the smaller bedroom was much too small in comparison to the bigger one which actually had a lot of wasted space.
The 2 beds in the smaller room were fit for small children and not adults.
However, that was the only drawback.
Judy was so helpful in everyway possible and some.
Will definitely stay here again!

We chose to stay in these apartments because the reports on my Tobago were excellent.
I can say that i was not disappointed on bit! I had a great time Judy was lovely and help full, even arranged for jeep hire before we arrived.
Judy invited us on a trip to "no manís land" we had a wonderful day something we will not forget.
Judy took us to the supermarket when we got out the airport, gave us a mobile phone and was very helpful in telling us the best local places to visit.
i would recommend Bijou Des Caraibes to anyone and if i return to Tobago this is where i will be returning too. Thanks Judy

We have just returned from our 6th visit to Bijou des Caraibes and this time we stayed for 6 weeks! So that I think says it all! It feels now just like our second home and a wonderful place to escape from the British winter.
It ticks all of our boxes-- comfortable bed, clean bathroom with powerful shower and adequate kitchen area + 6 days per week of maid service. ( Thank you Elma!) Another big plus for us is the free WIFI and loan of mobile phone as we both still work -- but as offices go, working by the beautiful pool with laptop on one's knees is not such a hardship!
Judy and Yvon are always on hand to help with any problems so if you are looking for a relaxed holiday at very reasonable rates without all the glitz of a big hotel, I would thoroughly recommend Bijou. We are planning 2 months next year!
