Sandy Point Beach Club - Reader Reports & Opinion
Diane Ellis from U.S.A. visited in July 2007 and awarded
I truley enjoyed myself at the Sandy Point Beach Club in Tobago. I went site seeing twice during my week and it was very educational and fun to interact with the people of this Island. The food was exellent and had a great fire dancer one night for entertainment. They had a pool table, and hokey game to play. I enjoyed swinging in the swings and playing on the see-saw. I thought I was a little girl again.
How this resort is located is great! You have the beach right out back of the resort also the spa and the swimming pool. The people of the resort were so wonderful to you. The only thing I didn't care for in the villa I was in, were the steps to your bedroom. There were about fourteen or fifteen steps to climb up to the bedroom. There was only one bathroom which was downstairs in the kitchen area. I dread going down the steps in the middle of the night for the bathroom or for anything from the kitchen or sink. Oh well I guess you can't have everything perfect. Other than that, I had a great experience.

Great place, great ambiance. Great place to meet people and friends from around the world
Met a family while at the Sandy Point Resort and our family became very close friends and because of the friendship we made Both families went on vacation together to Hawaii in June and had an amazing time.
Kids loved it and would like to return.
I would recommend for families and honeymooners alike.

Family of 4 with 2 teenage daughters. We stayed here for a week. Room was spacious and cool, equipment was clean and plentiful The desk staff could not have been more helpful, they booked restaurants, taxis without delay and have hire cars on site, we always got a smile and chat from the security guard at night when we got back (reception closes at 9pm). The resort provides a free shuttle bus to pigeon point and Mt Irvine on a regular basis which was very handy. one of the mini buses is VERY cranky and a bit dodgy but it went!. If you want to you can sign up with a guy called Wayne (Via a lady called Elvira) who does runs out to beaches at night to see the Turtles nesting, you need to leave you location with him and he will try to find you, he is a bit pricey but it is worth every penny. The on site bar was well stocked, prices for beer at $7tt is good but spirits ware a bit pricey at $26tt for a Gin. The bar has entertainment most nights we went one night, (Limbo dancer he was impressive) but as we ate out we missed most. However you can get a nightcap and sit on the beach and watch the herons and hermit crabs scuttle around!. Food in the on site cafe, I hesitate at restaurant, was good with a limited daily choice. Service at the cafe was a little slow but who cares! If you get a car or feel like an long walk go to the 'Penny Saver' super market to stock up. Prices are good and the range of goods is amazing. Beats most French supermarche I have been to! All in all a nice relaxing place to stay with access to most things, a VERY short airport transfer and some good restaurants within a short taxi ride. Best Restaurant we found was the Kariwak Village with short choice menu (All in) fun staff and strange setting!
WE WILL GO BACK

The is a delightful destination, well-managed and maintained by an organized and efficient staff. Its unassuming appearance belies a resort that provides the guests with a sense of commuity and sevice without the pressure of having to patronize.
From orientation to departure we were treated as guests, not just another tourist. The day trip to the rainforest with Leroy as guide/driver was an education in Tobago history, culture and geography. He was patient and entertaining with the young people. Doug and Andrew (Frotier Dive) were thorough, and proved to be a top-notch shop for our diving.
One of the most delightful experiences was dining at the restaurant. Julianne's meals were excellent and we found ourselves returning to enjoy the food, the service and, of course, the view. Don't let this go away.
A 5 star resort is one that provides services and amenities beyond expectations. Sandy Point Beach Club fits the description.

Sandy Point Beach Club was very nice. The units were a good size and very clean. The staff at the Club were wonderful and very accommodating.
The only "negative" was the beach and we knew that before we went there ... still you kinda wanted to go in the water and it is not a swimming beach.
The resort offered FREE transportation to some great beaches the best was Pigeon Point. It is truly amazing.
I would go back to this resort.
