Our Tobago Experience

We recently vacationed in Tobago and in choosing accommodation we were influenced by the My Tobago information Page. We split our choice between the Sanctuary Villas and the Coco Reef Hotel. While the villa accommodation was good, access to the property was an uphill crawl, maneuvering loose gravel and potholes. Though advised to rent transportation, which is necessary to get to the main centers, the warning does not prepare the unsuspecting visitor for the condition of the road, the distance, nor the absence of adequate lighting leading to the property. Clients making enquiries to this property should be made aware of this and not have it thrust upon them when its too late to change. Now, to the much touted Coco Reef Hotel. We were very disappointed. This property lacks warmth, it doesn’t have the real character of upscale hotel. It is just a big complex. Can you imagine a hotel of this acclaim not even providing drinking water or glasses in the room? The room was large and basic, with the cold floors and a very basic bathroom with inefficient plumbing. The claim of having its own beach is not quite true; the man made lagoon does not compare and one is not inspired to bathe there. Coco Reef is riding on a lie. Eating out -- We visited the upscale restaurants, but found the smaller establishments to be better value for money and your taste buds. For breakfast/brunch we recommend The House of Pancakes, situated at Milford Road, Crown Point, and for lunch/dinner we highly recommend its sister, Panache Creole Restaurant at Pigeon Point junction. Delicious food, accommodating staff, unbeatable prices. Satisfaction guaranteed! We, unfortunately, only discovered these culinary delights towards the end of our holiday. You might say they saved the best for last. We thoroughly enjoyed Tobago, its lush vegetation and serene beauty. Its the perfect destination for a relaxed and peaceful holiday".

Excellent website, truly informative. We are going to the Coco Reef for the first time in early December. A wee bit disappointed to see that afternoon tea is not part of the all inclusive package. Then again you can eat too much!! I noted the comments on towels being placed in strategic positions. Are there plenty of other shady places rather than on the beach? Secondly, are US dollars accepted in Tobago? I would also appreciate confirmation that all passengers disembark at Grenada on the outbound flight. Any advice would be much appreciated. PS I promise to provide a review on my stay. TTFN.

Just Back From Coco Reef

Wel we've just got back from a week in Tobago staying at Coco Reef. I can say that it was wonderful. The service was excellent, the room had great views, lovely beach. No problems with over booking, it was very quiet. There was lots of room and shade on the beach. They have started to upgrade pool maintenance, the pool was the only part which needed a bit of work. I just wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks for the info on the site, I used it to plan trips and found it v useful. Soraya

Rooms @ Coco Reef

Anyone have any comments about the standard of en-suite facilites in Coco Reef? Am thinking about booking up, but had an issue in the past when staying in the Caribbean where the room was nice but the ensuite was "tired" to say the least. Also, is there any sort of mobile telephone network on the island? Cheers,

Steve

Hi, We have just returned from two weeks in the Coco Reef resort and had a fantastic time. The resort was superb in most areas although I would say that the pool area could do with some renovation. The food and service was outstanding and we are now trying to shift the half a stone in weight that we have both put on! I would recommend it to any couples or families although there is very little for children to amuse themselves with. I read this website right up until we left and found it very informative and accurate. Thanks Steve,

Regards,

Nicola
