Crown Point Beach Hotel - Reader Reports & Opinion

While i love the location and general atmosphere of the hotel i was somewhat dissatisfied with the organisation when the party now arrived. while we had booked a one bedroom apartment and one studio apartment when we arrived they told us that we were supposed to get 2 apartments, causing us to have to pay quite a bit more money than expected...i was also not satisfied with their policy in terms of the number of individuals allowed to stay in each room...while six people could have stayed in just one of the rooms we were given...only three were entitled...which caused us to have to stay in two separate rooms which were located on opposite ends of the grounds...lastly after about 6 p.m. no one is allowed in the pool while i know that this is as a result of the restaurant being open for dinner but i would have still liked to have the option of being able to swim in the evening...other than these few problems the hotel itself is very comfortable and the staff is very polite...its proximity to the beach is also very convenient...all in all the stay was quite enjoyable despite the upsets :)

Beach despayed on the catalogue and web: pratically not existing; the very small one close to the hotel, always crowded of not very good persons
Pool: clean and large enough
Pool bar service: Ok
Breakfast: food variety very poor
Breakfast service: ok
Reception Service people: Too many, lazy, non kind with guests, never smiling and some time sullen. This is the worst feature of the hotel!

We loved Crown Point Hotel, we felt very secure with the round the clock security and fenced complex, a beautiful view from our balcony, the grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and the peace and quiet was wonderful. We loved the quiet atmosphere at the open air restuarant which by the pool and the outdoor bar that overlooks the ocean. The rooms were clean and quite nice, not what we are used to in Canada for that price, but we found the room comfortable. We found the staff very helpful and enjoyable, some more than others really made sure that you were having a good time in their resort and in Tobago. We also found that Store Bay beach adjacent to the resort that is used by the hotel guests was one of our favorite. The restaurant was a bit pricey but the food was good. We really enjoyed our stay at this property and would recommend it.

Preferred rating would have been 3.5.
Mine was an overnight stay so as to conduct business the next day.
Room was comfortable, clean and secure. Surroundings were serene and welcoming.
Renovations to restaurant were quite pleasing. Food was delicious and portions were more than satisfactory.
Close proximity to the airport was of great benefit. No need for a taxi, therefore a saving on additional expenses.
Also chose it because of the nearby Store Bay. This was disappointing, however. The shoreline has changed and while I usually prefer active waves to calm water, the irregularity of the sea bed took away from my enjoyment as I had to be more careful not to get out of my depth. Some kind of action needs to be taken to restore the sea bed.
The wooden walkways in the hotel itself could also do with some restoration. Well finished wood is a beautiful sight and would enhance the charm.

I stayed here for my honeymoon in a studio room. The room was decent, clean and comfortable; a functional kitchenet; cable tv; hot&cold water and air condition. The balcony had a beautiful view overlooking the sea. Privacy was good and room service cleaned the room and replenished items like soap ans toilet paper every morning. the staff were and nice helpful. There is a nice walkway through the garden to the beach and the pool is clean and nice.
The only downsides is that the pool access is restricted to between 9am and 6pm. The other negative is the prices of in house meals are really extravagant and variety is limited.
All in all a great place and will stay there again.
