My wife and I have recently returned from an enjoyable and relaxing three week holiday, staying at Sherwood Park Apartments. We found them through the myTobago website, which we found to be an excellent source of information about the island. Originally, we had intended to stay at one of the big resort complexes, until we found Sherwood Park, which sounded like our sort of place.
Everything about Sherwood Park Apartments was exactly as we had expected from the information on myTobago. Nigel and his staff were always cheerful and helpful, and any (small) problems which arose were dealt with immediately. Nigel and Marvin were also very knowledgable about Tobago. Our thanks to everybody there.
Sherwood Park proved an excellent base to explore all of Tobago, with a rental car, arranged by Nigel through Andie's Rentals (no problems and good value). We used the myTobago restaurant listing as a starting point for where to eat out each evening, and found the comments almost always to be a true reflection. Our personal favourites were the Seahorse Inn (3 visits) and La Terrazza (2 visits, but would have been 3, except that they were closed on our last evening), and we also ate twice at Bonkers, Ru B Lou s and Café Coco. Everywhere we dined was within 15 minutes drive of the Apartments.
All in all, both the apartments and Tobago in general came up to our expectations --- only marred by a couple of instances of gratuitous cruelty to dogs, the worst of which was on our last day there, which we subsequently reported to the Tobago SPCA.

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at Sherwood Park Apartments in November 2005. We found the staff helpful and friendly. The apartments are clean, well presented and great value for money. We rented a car from Sheppy's Car Rental who provided a trouble free service at good prices.
We ate out most evenings and would recommend the Seahorse Inn and Panache, which offered great local food and a relaxed atmosphere.

The appartment is very peacefull and also perfectly situated nearby all main facilities of the island. It has a beautifull tropical garden with many flowers, birds and a swimming pool. The service is the best! The staff will help you at any time of the day. When you arrive, you will be informed about all the services of the appartment and about how things work in Tobago. This will help you start your vacation succesfully. There is also a book in every room which gives you information about all the restaurants, activities and places of interest on the island. This is very good!
We were also surprised to see that there was some food (bread, milk, eggs, orange juice, coffee, tea) in our refrigerator when we arrived! Because of this we could have breakfast the first morning, without having to go out shopping.
The appartments are very clean: Every day the cleaning lady comes and takes care of the cleaning and fresh towels.
Another great service of Sherwood Park is that, when you don't feel like cooking or going out for dinner, you can order a home-cooked meal with Indi. She will bring it to the appartment and you can enjoy a very good dinner on the terracce for little money.
On the last day of your staying you can stay in your room as long as you want. You will get a drive from Sherwood Park to the airport form the manager whenever you want.
Thanks to Sherwood Park Appartments, we've had a fantastic vacation in Tobago!!

Have just returned from a dream holiday on 'Paradise Island', and can't speak too highly of Sherwood Park. The apartments, pool and gardens are lovely, peaceful and far from mass-tourism, though we enjoyed meeting friendly fellow-guests of several nationalities. We had been a little worried about not staying on a beach, but from the moment manager Nigel collected us at the airport, and told us that he ferried to and from beaches every day, we were reassured. No problem! In fact the excellent staff, friendly and efficient, were a huge bonus. As we bought local food at local markets, and used local transport, we felt we blended into the environment. We also spent two wonderful days with tour guide Peter Cox, of Tobago Nature Tours, learning about the brilliant birds and plants of Tobago, and I'd like to send a separate review of these trips. All in all, the most fantastic holiday.
