The Branch - Reader Reports & Opinion

Went to The Branch based upon recommendation of friends. Well, the recommendation recieved by my friends was under reported. Upon arrival at The Branch, I was very much impressed by the owners, Sam and Lydia Jones and immediately felt the warmth of such a beautiful place. I was inform of the surroundings and the history of the island and places that would be of interest.
I was blown away of the magnificent view that overlooked the island. The living quarters are excellent, and the dining was superb. The dishes were plentiful and if you were hungry after a meal, it was your fault. And I might add, if you missed these meals, shame on you, you wouldn't find better dining. Kudo to the chef. BTW, if anyone interested, the chef is Lydia Jones.
Finally, this was an experience I found hard to match. Regardless if you are a first time or a world class traveler, The Branch is a MUST stop retreat in your travels.

I have visited The Branch on several occasions and have been VERY impressed each and evey time! Sam and Lydia Jones were the most wonderful hosts. They made sure that I had everything that I needed and the food was EXCELLENT. The view is amazing and the accomodations very comfortable and relaxing. The lush tropical gardens make you feel as though you are in a movie. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast over any other options on the island.

My stay at the Branch was excellent. The host and hostess really went out of their way to make sure I had everything that I needed. Accomodations were excellent. The view from the property was breathtaking overlooking the ocean and the city below. Several times i forgot about the other business/activities I had to attend to in tobago. I was comfy jus chillin and taking in the view. What a stress relief for a man with a stressful job. Breakfast each morning was amazing. The hostess will cook any thing you ask for. So being from Trinidad originally I requested salt fish, smoke herring, omlets, fry bake, sorrell and local fruit from the garden which included, papaya, guarva, mango and coconut. Overall, the experience was far beyond my expectations and I will recommend this bed and breakfast without hesitation.

This was my second visit to The Branch and it proved to be another cherished memory.
Away from the hustle and bustle of daily routine, the entire experience was surreal. The element of safety, the refreshing breeze throughout the day, the clean spacious rooms with balconies - lovely place for a cup coffee, overlooking a part of the island and the beautiful shimmering Atlantic. The 24 hour, help-yourself, open breakfast/snack/coffee/tea bar. The sunrises and sunsets from any angle of the property were amazing but the riot of rich oranges to red and sometimes the grays to silver never lasted long enough. The property is a nature lover's paradise with all the modern amenities.
Host and Hostess, Sam and Lydia are just another bonus to this treasure spot.
