Bijou Des Caraibes - Reader Reports & Opinion
Vanessa And Lesley from U.K. visited in November 2008 and awarded
We arrived in Tobago dazed from the long flight, Judy met us at the airport and we immediately felt in safe hands. She drove us to the supermarket and bank and even helped us sort out a hire car and find the best roti cafe around. She is definitely what makes this accommodation special. We also loved lounging by the pool and the amount of space we had in the one bedroom apartment. The garden is lovely and being able to see the sea is a bonus. The nearby beach was our favourite, it was chilled and beautiful, with great food at the cafe. We had the holiday of a lifetime, as they say. Thanks to the whole team at Bijou Caraibes.

My husband and I spent 3 days to celebrate our 24th. wedding anniversary and his birthday. Our stay was very relaxing. The peace and quiet were exactly what we wanted after a few very hectic few months juggling family and work committments.
The design of the room is very basic, but comfortable. The kitchenette is a bit small, but workable, unless you want to prepare gourmet meals. The kitchen utensils were extremely clean, which is a plus because we have had past experiences at other resorts where kitchen utensils were rusty and offensive.
The rooms were very clean and the swimming pool was divine. We loved the fact that there were no limitations on the times for using the pool. We also loved the freedom we were given to pick a variey of mangoes just outside of our room each morning for breakfast. Access to wireless internet was extremely useful as well as the cable tv and of course, a functional air conditioning unit.
The beaches are quite close (5 mins away by car) and there were no deadlines to return to the apartment, as we were given a key for the electronic gate. Our vehicle was also safely lodged on the compound.
Judy's hospitality is to be commended and we quite enjoyed our frequent little chats.
Judy, we will definitely be back!!!!!!!

My family and friends enjoyed nothing but peace, quiet and privacy. The apartments and surroundings are very well kept and sanitary. The facilities are well maintained and the maid service was quite a bonus. The ambiance and natural beauty was so rejuvenating. Bijou des Caraibes is truly a jewel of the Caribbean.
The Mumpower Family from U.S.A. visited in July 2008 and awarded
Our family is extremely blessed with many travels under our belt. July 5-13, 2008 we added Tobago to our list of visited places. Upon arival, we were greeted at the Airport by our hostest (the world's greatest hostest I must add). Judy Gemmet at Bijou Des Caraibes had answered many questions prior to our arrival. Judy assisted us with our arrival to her home and made us feel welcome immediately. On the way from the airport, she stopped at the market to allow us to pickup items we might need for the next morning.
Our informative tour of the grounds was given and no questions were left unanswered! Max is the guard dog. He was great! His presence offered an added sense of security. while at Bijou Des Caraibes, I felt 100% safe and cared for. I felt as if I had landed in paradise and had a home away from home and a family away from family. Being from ATL, GA we were unsure of what to expect. However, whatever we would have planned for could have not been as great as what we had in store. Judy's 2 sons made us feel so welcome. Thanks Yann for being so thoughtful and fun! I really enjoyed the personal attention, suggestions and great service!
Tobago is what the Southernmost Carribean Island should be.
Beautiful beaches, happy people, laughing children, great waterfalls, unbelievable birds, magnificicient rain forrest and quality family vacation. My husband, myself, daughter (16) and son (9) all enjoyed our trip so very much. We have beautiful photos, quality memories and new friends! We were thrilled to get a non stop flight from ATL. There is talk that will not remain. I only hope it does.
We visited with local children and people. We learned of their culture. The folks of Tobago were so caring. Our tour guide at the rain forrest was wonderful!!!! She was a grandmother and treated my children so great...(I hope she reads this). We had several picnics during the week that will be hard to top! We enjoyed too many beaches to list. We rode Wave Runners, Banana Boats and Glass Bottom Boats. Everything was reasonable priced.
Overall I rate Tobago a great family destination. I would be happy to answer any questions. I left wondering what to expect and returned hoping to go back!!! What a Blessing to see this part of the World. The Lord made a beautiful Island when he made Tobago!!! Enjoy this Island and you will find plenty to explore. We explored daily for 7 days. I could have hiked and explored for another week and not been bored. I love nature and Tobago is full of beauty!
THANKS to Judy, Yann and Eurie!!!! We looked forward to staying in contact. You are wonderful hosts. I learned a new meaning to opening up your home. You are truely wonderful people and we are thankful for the care that you took of us!!

A chance discovery on the net during a busy period led us to a beautiful place to relax and unwind. Lovely view and peaceful surroundings make you want to extend your stay.
We have enjoyed Judy's hospitality twice and on each occasion been very satisfied. She is friendly and committed to her guests something I have not encountered in many establishments - no wonder her visitors return. It certainly is a pleasure to recommend her,
