Sea Shell - Reader Reports & Opinion
Raphaela Bischof from Austria visited in February 2013 and awarded
Parlatuvier and seashell appartment we booked as it seemed that this place is a quite one with less tourists.
it was our first stay in tobago - so we did not know what will expect us.
lets start with the positiv one: the location of seashell is a single one and excellent . the view from the balcony over the palatuvier bay, directly under you the sea and the beach - it was really relaxing and we spend hours on our balcony.
the appartment itself is very basic one. this is fine as the interiour includes everything needed to spend their a week or more.
But - be aware- everything has to be cleaned before usage !
this is the big issue with this appartment- you do not enter it and feeling well. it is not clean and it is not proper maintainanced.
honestly spoken - i think the lessor does not care too much on client comfort as long as the rent is paid. (we have seen him once- at the arrival day to hand over room key and payment)
however,what we really enjoyed was the peacefull enviroment and our coffee/breakfast at mrs. chances bar round the corner.
in a nutshell: for the quality of the appartment , the price is too high - for the same money you get for sure a much cleaner appartment in tobago!

Simple and clean accommodation. Nice village,fresh fish daily. The sound of the ocean. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax this is great. Joanne is both a wonderful person and great cook, she lives in the house down the steps and will cook you up fresh fish and goodies. Her roti is excellent.! While the village is quiet it is easy to find people to give you tours or set that up once your there, no need to worrie about setting of all up in advance it is easy enough to have a local fisherman take you out if you desire or get a guide. The sale was very friendly and is able to get you a car rental or can if you like. Had a great stay!

Beautiful place, very relaxing and a great get away.
Room 1 is excellent. Lovely view overlooking the sea. Just imagine I was able to stay from on the balcony and see an eel swimming in the sea. It was a great experience and now is my secret hideaway.

This was our third stay in Tobago. But the first one at Sea Shell.
Parlatuvier is one of the more quit and relaxed places on the isle.
You can always get a good local meal at Joannas place.(The house just below sea shell).
Joanna can provide you with almost everything during your stay.

Lovely stay at seashell. Very laid back and quiet. The apartment was up to scratch and perfectly fine for our requirements.
Dale and his mum, Anne, were lovely and helpful. The lady, Joanne, next door was also very helpful. She can contact Dale if you have any needs or problems.
The beach at Parlatuvier is lovely and quiet. A bit rough at times for swimming but the other end of the bay is safer.
The locals are all lovely and friendly. We made friends with the local children at the school on the beach!
This is our fourth year in Tobago. We usually stay in Castara but have friends living in Parlatuvier so this was much more convenient. Will have no worries about staying here next year if we can get the chance to return. It is very local to all the lovely beaches like Englishmans bay. We particularly loved going there as it is a real beauty spot and you can purchase refreshments from Eulas on the beach where you get a really warm welcome. Other nearby spots are the pretty waterfall in Parlatuvier where you can have a refreshing swim.
