The Branch - Reader Reports & Opinion

I'm not going to repeat what you've heard in all the reviews thus far- I'm just going to say that you can believe each and every "glowing" one! It's all true! When I was reading them before we decided to stay at The Branch- I was a bit skeptical, it seemed almost too good to be true- but my hubby and I decided we'll go anyway. We were so glad we did! From the word go we were impressed, with the vast and breathtaking surroundings way up in the hills overlooking way down to the other end of the island (Crown Point), the exceptional and warm service (they really went way above and beyond in so many ways I won't waste time trying to list them - they spoiled us!), the impressive guesthouse itself, spotlessly clean rooms, the infinity pool, the outdoor hot tub/jacuzzi, the well presented tea and snack station, the pool table and other games, all the meals-especially the three course dinners plus dessert (we eventually had to beg off (very reluctantly) from all the courses but the main one and the dessert because it was soo much (and soo delicious!))The only things that some may not like is the fact that there is no television in the bedrooms, and the 'longish' (3-5 minute) drive in to the guesthouse on unpaved (though not dirt) roads- but that definitely fades into insignificance with all things considered. We had an amazing stay at The Branch! I obviously recommend it!

Lydia and the Chief were absolutely wonderful hosts. My better half and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the company of both Lydia and the Chief! The Branch is located on the mountain side of Tobago and its definitely in a secluded and less-traveled location. But do not let the travel up the dirt roads dissuade you from staying here. Once we reached our destination, we were thoroughly impressed! The infinty pool and jacuzzi are a must and so is Lydia's AMAZING breakfast!!! One morning we had saltfish and fry bake, with tomato choka and fry plantains, bananas and mango/pineapple chow! It tasted SO SO good and it was filling! We also loved the panoramic view of Scarborough and even as far as Crown Point while enjoying our meal outdoors. The room was cozy and if we had it our way, we would not have left the compund to venture out and explore other parts of Tobago! It was a thoroughly relaxing stay and we have plans to return again. As young local Trinidadians, we consider both Lydia and the Chief as parents to us and will make sure to always make time to see them when we are in town!
Thanks again for your warm hospitality, Lydia and the Chief! We shall be seeing you soon!

I am so so extremely satisfied with what the branch and the owners dr. And her husband chief has given me staying there it brought so many things to my mind with life and what is true comfort these two people have given me laughter,love,and so much more it that short time. They made me feel like life is worth living again and to never give up on the dreams that i got i wish i could of lived there with them not for just the comfort of the house but for a lifetime of love and care that is not really given. I saw it and felt it... Believe me when i say this place is what you would really call heaven and home... Love you guys...

I had the privilege of staying at the The Branch for my Honeymoon, which was a last minute reservation and even though it was stiff Mr. and Mrs. Jones accepted us with the most heart warming welcome to their Love nest. My experience at The Branch was Marvelous its really a home away from home... the place was really clean the food excellent the service excellent and there wasn't anything we ask for that we didn't get. The ambiance is very beautiful. From our room we say saw the sunset and the sunrise was an amazing view of Tobago from the Hill tops. This was the Best home away from experience. I would always recommend my friends and love ones to experience The Branch... It the Best Hide away ... Cant wait to return....
