Sherwood Park Apartments - Reader Reports & Opinion
Annette Groeneveld from Netherlands visited in April 2009 and awarded
We spend 14 days on Tobago and loved every minute of it.
Tobago is a paradise and Sherwood Park is the perfect place to enjoy it. A friendly and safe resort with a very helpfull staff. They will go to any length to make your stay enjoyable.
We enjoyed their assistence with BBQ's, they helped figure out which trip to book and we profited from their directions around the island to find beautifull bays, great restaurants and colourfull things to do.
The apartments are cosy, spacious and airy. No airconditioning needed due to the position of the building in relation to the direction of the winds. A lovely balcony, a big terrace and a nice swimming pool.
In short: enjoy Tobago by enjoying the excellent service of Sherwood Park.

This spring we visited the island of Tobago for the first time. We stayed at Sherwood Park Apartments and that was a very delightfull experience! Highly recommend for everyone who likes an easy, comfortable en well-organised stay.
The appartments are very comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed swimming in the pool, resting in the garden en talking or reading in the sun or shade.
The beaches are never for away and Nigel, the very friendly manager, knows the way, likes to advise you and organises everything you ask him. Rent a car? Ask Nigel. Book a sailingtrip? Ask Nigel. What a luxury!
We will be back this Christmas!

We were 6 people and stayed at Sherwood Park from February 8th to March 22nd.
It was our third stay there and we were totally satisfied.
Like the years before we enjoyed the pool, the garden and everything else in Shrewood Park. The stuff is always friendly and helpful and you feel very welcome.
We are looking forward to our next stay in Sherwood Park!

We stayed at Sherwood Park Apartments from January 3rd to 7th and can highly recommend it to other travelers.
We were in Tobago for almost three weeks for our destination wedding/honeymoon. We wanted to take in as much of the island as we could so we started our trip with a stay here.
Before arriving we spoke with Nigel, the manager who was able to arrange an early check in for us and met us at the airport. He was very friendly and informative, stopping at the grocery store on the way to the apartments.
Our check-in was very informal and welcoming, we were basically just shown to our room and told to relax. We found the room to be just what we expected and just like the hotel's website shows it. Great value and had everything we needed. We loved being surrounded by the lush landscape, relaxing by the private and quiet swimming pool and enjoying dinner on our patio cooled by the tropical breezes coming off the Atlantic coast.
There were many birds and at night we saw an owl, perhaps checking out the many frogs at the foot of the gardens that come out when the sun goes down.
All the staff were friendly and approachable and the property is very secure.
Although it is not right on the beach, Nigel offers two beach runs, one to Pigeon Point beach and the other to Mt. Irvine beach for a very nominal fee. We took advantage of both and had some perfect days relaxing on the beach and snorkelling too! Another day we took a taxi to Store Bay and Coco Reef, about a 15 minute ride from Sherwood Park. We never found the location to be too remote and enjoyed coming back to our hideaway after our excursions.
We would certainly go back, like everywhere we stayed in Tobago, the value, setting and staff made Sherwood Park Apartments a truly wonderful experience.
Lystra Kissoon from Trinidad visited in December 2008 and awarded
Our stay at Sherwood Park Apartments during the last week of Dec '08 was very enjoyable. The room was very spacious and the kitchenette was fully furnished with an adequate amount of utensils. The private balcony was great (each room had its own balcony with a view of the pool) . The parking facilities was exceptional. Nigel was very warm and friendly and the staff was equally friendly. The pool was great and there was not a lot of people to say that one felt a sense of being over-crowded.
Only one thing, the rooms have no television and that was a downpoint,(it needed not be cable TV, only local programming would have been fine to look at the news at least) i know one was in the reception area, but it would have made a difference if we had a TV in the privacy of our room.
Overall the stay was good and we would definetly consider staying there again on the next trip to Tobago.
Thanks a lot Nigel.
