Grafton Beach Resort

Anyone considering some fun in the sun should go to the Grafton. Wifey, Me, and the Kids thought we would escape Trini Carnival this year for some R + R bago style, and selected a week all inclusive at the newly refurbished Grafton Beach Hotel.
It is truly a beautiful hotel on the beach, designed to offer all rooms an uniterupted view of the Caribbean Sea. All the rooms are well appointed with balconies. Amenities include Squash Courts, also in the Sister Hotel immediatly adjacent, there's a fully equipped Gym, Spa, etc. which you can use.
Whilst being renovated, they also refurbished the chef, and the quality of the cuisine is wonderful. Buffet style Breakfast with the usual bacon, eggs, Beans, sausage, French toast, Fresh fruit ceriel. Juice coffee tea etc etc. (I'm getting hungry) Additionally every day they do local dishes, such Saltfish, cornbeef, bake, choka, roti. sardines. You choose your lunch spot at the beach rest / bar by the pool in the dining room, in you room. Probably in your car if you want it. (the staff are there to please) Lunch is menu style by the beach (Sundays BBQ) and extensive buffet choice in the Hotel. In the evening you get the full treatment. By the pool there is an intimate fish and seafood restaurant with about 5 or 6 main dishes to select from, ( have to book this the day or so before) Or the main restaurant with all the posh food Filet Mignon, snails, pork tenderloin to die for. Rack of lamb. quality. Needless to say you have salads sweets cheese and of course Vino Brandy etc.
Every evening you are entertained by one of Tobago's sons or daughers, the entertainment is different every night. The pool bar is open all day and 3 til 5 every day they have adopted the good old Britsh custom of afternoon tea (my mummy would definatly approve, god bless her)
Grafton is truly a great place to stay and I would have no hestation in recomending it to anybody.
Where Do We Stay?

After reading all these reports we are in a dilemma about where to stay, we have paid a deposit to stay at the rex but are now unsure if it really is what we are looking for. The run down state of the place sounds very off putting and with all due respect to our OAPís we are looking to stay with couples of similar ages and interests with nice surroundings to relax in, snorkeling, places of interest to walk to. We canít afford the prices off the coco reef so any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Our tour op mentioned the Grafton any reports on that would be very helpful.
Grafton Beach Compensation

I am trying to trace anyone who was struck down with the still 'unknown illness' at the Grafton Beach resort in November. We have just been offered compensation by the hotel management but no explanation as to what caused the illness. If anyone has any information as to the cause and if you too have been offered compensation please post a reply as i am unsure wether to accept or not.
Grafton Beach Vs. Rex Turtle Beach

Hi. A friend and I are planning on holidaying in Tobago towards the end of this year with our families. We are all 30-something adults with children ranging in ages between 2 and 5. We are able to get rates at both the Rex Turtle Beach and the Grafton Beach for pretty much the same price. What we would like to know is which of these two hotels are recommended by those of you who have stayed at either/both of these establishments...or if anyone has suggestions for alternatives to either of these, we would love to hear them.
ps - Great web site!
