Tropikist Beach Hotel - Reader Reports & Opinion
Tropokist July 2005
Good points re Tropokist..
Lovely (very large) room (superior) with amazing panoramic sea view and nice large bathroom. We were upgraded as it was our anniversary, the standard rooms are much smaller but still adequate and comfortable.
Beautiful pool (the best we have experienced!) spa pool also lovely.
Good enough food when we did eat in (we were room only so not often)
Nice bar area/swim up bar was fun
Less good points..
Animals ? rats on balcony several nights running. We told when we complained they were baby manicou but sure as hell looked like rats to us (we saw them very close up through french windows. mmm!)
Towels were taken arround 10am and not replaced til 4pm ish, so not good if you wanted a shower in the day
Sometimes maid 'forgot' to make-up room!
Tiles were being relaid outside the rooms, causing annoying dust/dirt and also noise if in the room during the day at all.
Rather dismissive attitude of some of the staff, pushy in house dive instructor but several of reception/restaurant staff were helpful and pleasant.
In summary.. its a decent enough hotel if you are on a budget, well we didn't want to come home!
Tropikist Beach Hotel
A lovely hotel up and coming and I'm sure thats down to the hard work of the new General Manager Mark. It seems that the hotel was once on a downward slope but gradually over the two weeks we stayed you could see the vast improvements. Wherever you went and whatever time Mark was always there to help and with his training of the staff this also proved positive. A man who is striving hard to keep his tourists happy. Well done!!
Would You Recommend Having A Wedding At Tropikist Hotel?
I stumbled across this site, and needless to say this site is a very good idea...cutos to the developer.
My fiance and I visited Tobago for two days and one night in May of 2006. We immediately fell inlove with the island and its people. We would like to have our wedding ceremony and reception in Tobago. However we aren't familiar with hotels and resorts on the island. We don't have a lot of money to spend but we do want to have a beautiful, memorable day.
Do you think that Tropikist could do the job for us
Please give us any advice or suggestions that you may have
Honeymoon @ The Tropikist
My fiance and I are considering spending our honeymoon at the Tropikist in Tobago.
Yes, I have read mixed reviews and am not so sure now.
From what I have read, it does seem a really nice hotel. Maybe I am paniking!!!!
What does the people say?
My boyfriend and I have just booked our holiday to Tobago landing there on September 1st. We have scoured many websites for information on both the island and the hotel we chose to stay at – Hotel Tropikist. I’m not sure when you wrote your review about the hotel but I am now slightly concerned as the comments you put were not complimentary.
As with all our holidays, we firstly checked the trip advisor and holiday watchdog websites and whilst we are under no illusion that it is not a 5 * hotel, there were some glowing reviews noted from people who stayed there as recently as March.
I am simply interested in finding out when your website made these comments as if it was a while ago, then they may have changed hands in between then?
