I had the blessing and privilege of staying at this place on my first visit to Tobago! My friends and I were completely satisfied and we were so sad to leave. We felt at home and completely safe and comfortable at the Branch. Doc and chief were two of the most humble, friendly, and genuine people that I have met. It was a pleasure to have their company and to hear their wise words of advice for us as young people. Doc's perfect cooking and baking skills had us in awe and not to mention her motherly nature and care which she extended to us all. Thanks for everything! We really dont even want to try another place when we visit next, which hopefully is in the near future!!!

The Branch is the place to go for the perfect getaway. Mr. and Mrs. Jones are very nice caring people, who made us feel right at home. I would recommend the Branch to any and eveeryone who ask me about places to stay in tobago.
It has a wonderful scenery and is equipped with all the amenities needed for that peerfect vacation from the massage chair, to the pool table, not forgetting the pool, jacuzzi and board games. They caters to your every need.
It is also a nice place to keep a wedding if you are going for the type of that melanie and derwin had when they were going to get married on tasha's property. The tv lovers and the game fans wouldknow what i am speaking about.
They will be seeing me again god's willing.

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Branch for two wonderful nights, we opted for the Apartment rather than the main house as we wanted to cook our meals. The minute you arrive it's as if you've just returned from a long vacation and are now back home. Doc and Chief are lovely people, warm, kind and great conversationalists.The pool and hot tub are accessories to this secluded paradise, along with it's great views of Tobago and the acres of land surrounding The Branch.
The apartment is very homey, the kitchen is spacious and there is one bedroom which holds two beds and the bathroom. The entire apartment is very clean and Air Conditioned throughout. There are fans in the kitchen and screens on each window which allows you to open up the windows and open the door and relax and cook or eat breakfast.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with bottled water, microwave, stove etc. There are so many kitchen utensils, pots and pans that you will not want for anything. The beds are comfortable and for the bathroom there are towels and mats all waiting for you. Staying in the apartment afforded us the private balcony that has the most spectacular view, the fresh air is great and relaxing.
Even though we opted to cook we decided we'll try Doc's hand and it was amazing, reasonably priced and delicious and the Chief set the mood with his thoughtful candlelight and slow music.Great food, breathtaking view, relaxing breeze, wonderful amenities, warm people...all in all, we'll be visiting the branch again soon.

My rating is 1- Extremely dissatisfied. Prior to my arrival at the Branch I requested simple accommodation (an apartment with two queen size beds, clean environment,safety for my vehicle, ) what I received was a blown up bed uncomfortable and another bed that was also uncomfortable, terrible road conditons and getting wet when the rain comes because i am not staying at the main house so i have to pass at the side of the house to get to the apartment. My aunt and I had to clean the apt because of dust, cobweb and a very huge lizard. To add insult the refrigerator was not working. We came for a vacation around Christmas and on my first day I wanted to leave but because it was around peak season getting another venue would have been difficult. I was told by the owners that maybe my "standards" are to high. Now I paid for something that I did not receive and then to be insulted by the owner. I can continue but I don't think it is necessary. I will never stay at the Branch nor would i recommend it to anyone. I will be very skeptical to check online for a place when it comes to Tobago.

I have been to The Branch twice for the year so far and I must say that it was the best weekends I have spend for the year... The place is well cleaned and the view is to die for plus owners Dr.Jones and Mr.Jones aka "the chief" mad us feel so welcomed and at home.... And i like this place so much that I'll be back there in November with some friends and were going to celebrate our birthdays as well, so we will have even more fun than the last time....
