A wonderful and affordable place to stay while visiting Tobago. Nigel and staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back. Everything was the same as advertised on its website. Sherwood Park Apartments has a great setting for a relaxing getaway and are only minutes away from a well stocked supermarket, pharmacy, bank and mall.

We have just come back from 3 glorious weeks staying at Sherwood Park Apartments and couldn’t recommend them more highly. This is our second holiday there – our last was 5 years ago – and if anything we loved it even more this time.
Don’t go there if you want mega-luxuries, lots of staff in fancy uniforms and gold taps in your bathroom – you’d be better off in one of the big sprawling anonymous corporate hotels. But do go there if you want peace, friendliness and helpfulness, a safe and charming setting and a perfect place to relax and feel at-home. Maybe some people think that to feel safe on an island like Tobago you need to be in a gated hotel with uniformed guards on the door. In fact, we actually always feel entirely safe and cared-for at Sherwood Park, which is set in a comfortable local community not on “Millionaires Row” – and though we’re well-travelled we aren’t wildly intrepid or risk-taking!
The apartments are simply but attractively furnished (we had a Suite up on the first floor) They are spacious and equipped with a kitchen area with good size fridges and gas cookers. And the beds and pillows are really comfortable, always a plus. The surroundings are lovely – pretty flowered gardens full of birds and birdsong, a terrace and a very pleasant pool. The whole place is quiet, unrushed and so thoughtfully-run. Nigel, the manager, never puts a foot wrong and gets that balance right between being really friendly, informal and welcoming and also utterly professional in responding to any needs you have – for example to do with amenities in the room or for local information and advice. And the rest of the staff are friendly and kind, too.
Sherwood Park is set in a pleasant residential area slightly inland – but with views of the sea in the distance from your balcony. There’s a good supermarket only 3 minutes drive away and it’s a very easy to drive to beaches in either direction. We really like having a car and being able to go out and about to different restaurants, beaches and cafes and to explore under our own steam (and most people do this) But at Sherwood Park they do also offer a low-cost taxi service to the main beach and a shopping service, so it wouldn’t be vital.
In all this place offers everything you need to relax and have a dreamy Caribbean holiday – away from the potential hassle and noise of staying right by the beach. Couldn’t be better – and the hardest thing to do is to leave!

My husband and I stayed here from 24-27 January '11. We are preparing to return to Trinidad & Tobago and I just realized that I never submitted our review for these facilities. Overall, we had a great stay here and feel comfortable recommending these lodgings. Nigel picked us up from the airport and drove us straight to Penny Savers so that we could pick up basic groceries. We appreciated this complimentary service. When we were there the facilities seemed a bit worn but were clean and pleasant. A minor refurbishment would make a huge difference. However this did not detract from our stay. We did not hire a car while staying here as our local friends lived nearby and kindly acted as our personal driver & guide. Otherwise it would be a good idea to have a rental vehicle. We look forward to returning to Tobago in October. Hopefully we can stay here again if it's not fully booked. This time five of us are travelling together so we'll see how that goes. I'd also highly recommend the Island Tour by Simon. The woman at the front desk (forgot her name, sorry, but she was great!) made the arrangements and we were really pleased with this recommendation. We are hoping to arrange another tour, this time with my mother-in-law and two of my sisters-in-law. They're originally from Trinidad but, ironically, have never had the pleasure of visiting Tobago. I think they're in for a treat, especially if we stay at Sherwood Park Apartments.
