Flamboyant Suite - Reader Reports & Opinion

I stayed in 2 apartment at black rock- flamboyant and Mahi Mahi. They were both great. They were spacious, clean and had most amendments. It was close to a grocery. I would certainly recommend either condo. Mahi Mahi however has a barbecue pit which was very convenient. My only comment for improvement is we all would have preferred to have a cleaner every day as on holiday you really don't want to clean

My family and I had a great stay at the Flamboyant Suite. The Suite had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and more than that.
This suite was the best located within the development as it was on the ground floor giving easy access to the pool and beach.
Being located on the beachfront was definately a big plus. Will definately visit again.

Stayed in The Flamboyant Suite for 1 week. It is a lot nicer and more spacious than the pictures on the website show. The pool is lovely & clean & The appartment is decorated really nicely, with lots of extra touches to the place. One example there was a bird book & binoculars which was really helpful to spot the amazing birds on the balcony and nearby trees.
Only thing that stopped me giving a 5 was the cleaner didnt turn up as often as she should have. Apparantly you are supposed to arrange the days you want her to come on the first day, but we werent told this on arrival. Great location though and really peaceful beach. Definitely would stay there again.

I stayed at the Flamboyant suite, Black Rock Dreams apartments for one week with my son, his girlfriend and my daughter. We were there to attend a wedding of friends, one of whom was from Tobago and had recommended the accommodation to us. It was an amazing location, right on the beach, high standard of fittings and furniture. Bathrooms, we had three, very clean and high tech. Loads of room and lots of thoughtful extras around, like candles, sun cream games and books. Felt very safe and had no problems with security. Island was amazing and not too hot. Hope to return and would stay in same apartment, excellent.

Never having been to Tobago, let alone Flamboyant, our research was all online. MyTobago was an invaluable tool, but we found other sources online as well. Until one actually experiences, though, it is still uncomfortable stepping into the unknown. We couldn't have been more satisfied after staying in Tobago and especially Flamboyant Suite. My Tobago's description and the Flamboyant Suite website can be totally relied upon, but our experience was even more than we expected. The condo has a perfect location. RIGHT on the beach, and a beautiful beach it is, gently sloping smooth sand into the ocean, not at all rocky. Flamboyant is delightfully appointed, the views are "to-die-for." Sunsets right out the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, comfortable beds with the sound of the surf, individually temperature-controlled bedrooms, clean, wonderfully maintained grounds. Built it '07, it is in great shape, and the delightful combination of the modern in the midst of the old ways (goats grazing on the hillside, fishermen pulling their seines full of fish onto the beach, all in view while sipping morning coffee on the sizable patio) was just what we were hoping for. Underground garage, modern security (although I'm not sure the emphasis on security is worth all the attention it gets--we felt perfectly safe wherever we went), and helpful, attentive staff.
Speaking of staff, Gillian Connelly is a treasure. She was such a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. We were a family of four, but all adults, and the accommodations were ideal. Two couples, or a larger family would find Flamboyant easy to live with and quite affordable. I could go on, but there isn't a negative comment to come up with.
