Ocean Dreams - Reader Reports & Opinion

My wife and I stayed at Ocean Dreams for 4 nights whilst en-route between other islands in the region and the UK. The accommodation is spacious and well equipped, beautifully decorated and to a high standard of cleanliness. There is a super large bed that's very comfortable, a shower room (with a shower that really works) and cable TV (though no dvd player). Importantly, free use of wifi internet access. The 'studio' apartment forms part of lower floor of a large house, occupied by it's owner, Raymond (retired bank manager) and his wife. There is a small terrace with a table and chairs, ideal for sitting out in the evening, with a sea view and to watch the sun go down. Free transport, to and from the airport, was included in the cost and lots of information and advice from Raymond on how best to enjoy this beautiful island. Communication by e mail with Raymond was very good and I believe anyone should feel confident in making a booking to stay at Ocean Dreams. This is 'value for money' accommodation offering much more than we had expected. The location of Ocean Dreams is a little remote (quiet 'up-maket' residential area) unless hiring a car, as there are few facilities, restaurants, bars and shops that are within close walking distance. For our stay, we pre-arranged a hire car, with a local hire car company, that was delivered to Ocean Dreams, but found out after we arrived that Raymond would, I believe, have been able to arrange something a little more competitive.

This was not the first time that i stayed at Ocean Dreams, and everytime I go, I always feel like staying longer. I am so thankful for being able to use mytobago information service and for the opportunity that they gave to me to find and stay at such a wonderful place like Ocean Dreams! The view is extremely beautiful from the patio, and the apartment is even greater. Mr. and Mrs. Ottley are splendid people and they made our stay all the more enjoyable. There truly is no other place that I have ever considered staying at because when i go to Tobago I look forward to staying at Ocean Dreams. Ocean Dreams is truly a dream come true for anyone that is looking for relaxation with the scenery as a bonus!

The apartment is very spacious even if it is essentially a studio with a separate bathroom.
It is well equipped and in excellent condition throughout.
The owners live upstairs. They have very likeable small dogs who may on occasions want to share the garden with you.
The photos attached to the main entry are accurate. the views from the patio are wonderful. The walk to Bacolet beach takes about five minutes. The beach itself is a beautiful place to be, although much of the sand is often taken over by the beach chairs hired by the adjacent bar. You may or may not find this is a welcome amenity.
It would probably be helpful to have a cell phone to call taxis or your own rental car. You can hitch lifts into Scarborough, but there is no regular public transport. We walked to town (40 minutes) and took taxis back, but we happen to like walking.
Very good value for an apartment set in spacious gardens with good views. Handy enough for an excellent beachand for everything else if you rent a car.
