Seaside Garden - Reader Reports & Opinion
Sylvia Und Christine from Switzerland visited in October 2013 and awarded
I spent two weeks with my 16 years old daughter in the beautiful Sea Side Garden Guesthouse.
The hotel is inside of a tropical garden and very clean, safe and has a fully equiped kitchen as well as air conditioning in all rooms.
The guesthouse is just in front of the beach and has a wonderfull view from the upper terrace and the front rooms downstairs.
Bucco is a little fishermens village and has some nice restaurants as well as little shops where you can buy everything you need.
The place is very central and its possible to get to the capital city Scarborough for just a US Dollar.
The owner Sheldon is a very friendly and helpful person who introduced as in the caribean culture.
There are a lot of activities around like riding on the beach or boat trips with barbecue at the beach or fishing trips.
We rent some bicycles from the hotel and drove along side the caribean sea. Tobago is not very big so that we could already reach a lot different beaches in pretty short time.
We are looking forward to come back to Tobago and spent some more weeks in Buccoo.

Hello, we had a wonderful time in the Seaside Garden Guesthouse.
We are a student couple and both 28 years old and took some freetime from university. We stood over five weeks in the little village Buccoo.
The hotel is lead by an old german lady and it's very lovely decorated and clean.
All the rooms have their own airconditioning and compared to many other contries in the world where we went to, the ac's were very clean and we never became sick.
The manager Sheldon is a very friendly and helpful person who showed us how to cook caribean food and gave us sometimes a trip to the supermarket or to the capital city Scarborough. Furthermore he is an exellent massage and reflexology therapist, who can offers his services for a good price.
Beside that the hotel was very safe even when you let some things in the living room or in the tropical garden outside, you always got your stuff back.
The two dogs Toby and Angie were very nice, friendly and a little crazy. We spent a nice time with them , walking them at the beach and hanging out with them on the terrace.
The only bad thing in the village is that , if you have not so much money, it's not possible to get nice food, mostly just fast food like chicken/fish & chips or you have to cook on your own (for this the guesthouse has a fully equiped modern kitchen).
Another thing is the sunday school (a local disco, which is just one time in the week) which is close to the hotel. We would recommend for all people who like it very quiet to stay just on Sundays in another hotel or otherwise they can just join the party. Right before the party starts there are a lot of local food and souvenir boothes as well as different caribean steal pan bands and dancing acts.
Finally we highly recommend the Seaside Garden as a very beautiful tropical central and clean hotel right in front of the Sea, with a helpful staff and good room prices. Compared to many other small Guesthouses where we went to in Tobago it's for sure one of the bests.

Wir verbrachten 2 Wochen im wundervollen Guesthose Sea Side Garden. Es ist eine gute Ausgangslage um die ganze Insel zu erkunden und Sheldon, der Manager, unterstützt einem in allem was man unternehmen möchte. Er chauffiert, organisiert,informiert und kocht sogar Einheimische Rezepte mit einem. Er ist einfach für alles da und sorgt ausgezeichnet für das Wohlbefinden der Gäste. Das Guesthouse verfügt über einen wunderschönen Garten der sich perfekt eignet um am Abend zu entspannen. Eine gut ausgerüstete Küche zum selber kochen macht das ganze zum perfekten Ferienerlebnis.Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet und sehr sauber zu einem sehr guten Preis. Thank's Sheldon

It was a wonderful time in Seaside Garden. I highly recommend this place to all the travellers. It made me feel like at home.
Mr Sheldon (The Manager) and his dogs treated us as a friends. We learnt a lot of things about Tobago, including some Ghost stories and he introduced some local food for us. There are so many things that you can learn from Sheldon, but sadly he is busy most of the time. I am still surprise because we found a friend, Yoga's Instructor and masseuse. He is an incredible multi task man and patient person.
Now I know that I found a second home in Tobago and I hope to come back some day.
Thanks for everything, especially for all the positive energy that we received.

My daughter and I stayed here for four (4) days at the Seaside Garden and I must admit, this was our greatest experience. The place was very clean, the view exquisite,the food at the Sunday School which is held every Sunday.....(just across the street) was amazing and the hospitality a triple plus. Sheldon (manager) always had a pleasant disposition and made us felt at home and very comfortable. I came home and bragged about my stay so much that my sisters and I plan to go back in August. I will continue to recommend this place to anybody and everybody :)
