Sherwood Park Apartments - Reader Reports & Opinion
Sherwood Park Apartments; Paradise Found.
Toine & Lia
Close your eyes and lay back, .... Do you hear the birds sing their song, do you feel the warmth, do you smell the odour of the flowers and do you hear the noise of silence? Where are you??? Youíre in Tobago, reading a book, or taking a nap on a beach chair by the pool of Sherwood Park apartments. Wish we were there again.
Everything thatís written in Steveís review about Sherwood Park is more than true. We loved it!!! We stayed in room 11 for two whole weeks and enjoyed every single minute that we were on the premises. The service that was provided by Nigel and his staff was absolutely great. As for Lia, who was then almost five months pregnant, they couldnít provide more help to relieve her of little physical problems. Thanks for that.
We enjoyed the clean pool, the good shower, the room, the fresh towels, the kitchen and the balcony. We enjoyed the nice talks with the staff, the grocery service, the cool drinks, the possibility the switch our books to new ones and the access to the Internet.
What else can we say? Wonderful and absolutely recommendable to everyone that knows how the enjoy in calm atmosphere.
So, if you would like to stay in a self catered apartment with the service of a hotel; this is the place to be. Donít expect the luxury of a five star hotel on the beach but find your self in the cosy surroundings of the midlands and the woods.
For Nigel and Fred; book room 11 for us early next year, a couple of months after our baby is born, because we will definitely come back. Thanks again.

Our February 2004 Visit
A Super winter retreat!
After being in transit more than 16 hours from Montreal to Barbardos to Trinidad to Tobago we arrived at Crown Point Airport in Tobago much the worse for wear and found dear Nigel, manager of Sherwood Park apartments patiently awaiting our late flight from Trinidad on Tobago Express air service.
We were totalling enjoying the ride to Sherwood Park until we turned off the main road to what can generously be called a narrow steep uphill lane. Then we made a hairpin curve onto a narrower dirt track which seemed to be in the darkest, deepest place. Then we turned into an even narrower lane which lead us to Sherwood Park Apartments. Need we say that we were feeling a bit uncertain.
The next morning we awoke to a gorgeous morning and we were delighted to find ourselves in this beautiful oasis which is called Sherwood Park.
We made our home here for 24 days; we felt at home with the people on the property and with the people on the island. Unlike most people who stayed at Sherwood Park, we did not rent a car. We hired taxis for tours (and met more people) and we enjoyed a lovely run to the beach which was provided by Sherwood Park at a nominal fee.
The property is beautifully built on a slope with the apartments on the top level. Down a few steps is a large pentagon shaped terrace with tables and chairs under thatch covered shelters. Down a few more steps is a gorgeous pool area with chairs and more thatched shelters.
Throughout the property is a beautiful garden which includes a wide variety of palms and flowering bushes.
Our thanks to Nigel Pirtheesingh for his most wonderful hospitality and to his staff Marvin, Andy, Carola and Louisa for a lovely family atmosphere. This is one of the best holidays we have ever had.

We Are Planning To Visit Sherwood Park From 9-23 Sept 2004
This week we are planning to book a ticket and a room at Sherwood park, because I heard and read lots of nice things about the appartment en Tobago.
And i'm planning to book the Suite at Sherwood park, so I hope there are people over here who can tell me more about this room. What's the difference with the normal appartments?
And one thing I want to know, is how can you get money on this Island? Can you pin the money? Or must you pay with traveller checks? And before I go to Tobago, can I go to the bank in Holland and get there some money in the valuta from Tobago? So that I have a little bit of money when we arrive at Tobago, so we can buy something to drink etc.
And all the other tips about the Island to see are welcome. But I think when we are there, Nigel can tell us everyting.
I wish it was September

What can I say - another truly relaxing holiday in lovely surroundings. Gary and I thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon. Nigel and his staff as ever were attentive and helpful. Our fridge was stocked on arrival and the bottle of wine was a lovely touch. Housekeeping was its usual high standard and nothing was too much trouble. This was our second stay here and we were not disappointed. Can't imagine staying anywhere else. Have definitely got the Tobago bug and am looking forward to returning a third time. Keep up the good work guys and see you again soon!
MY WIFE AND I VISITED SHERWOOD PARK FOR 2WEEKS FROM 20TH NOV. WE WERE MET AT THE AIRPORT BY NIGEL IN A TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR AND A POWER CUT. HOWEVER THIS DID NOT DAMPEN NIGELS SPIRITS AND WE KNEW DIRECTLY WE ARRIVED AT SHERWOOD PARK THAT WE WOULD ENJOY OUR STAY...EVEN THOUGH WE USED OUR TORCH FOR NEARLY 2HOURS!!
Nigel, Marvin, Andy and all the staff did an excellent job during our stay, and I would not hesitate to recommend the Sherwwod Park to anyone.
The place has a very friendly and calming air about it, and the service is excellent , and after diving with people from the Hilton for the first week, I can safely say that we got the better accomodation!
Fred Abbink arrived on the second week, and it is clear that his philosophy has infused the staff at the Sherwood Park. His friendly approach to providing excellent Customer Service is certainly ingrained in the whole place. Sue and I wish Fred , Nigel and all the staff a very happy Christmas , and all best wishes for the future. Hope to see you again !!
