Flamboyant Suite - Review Page 1

Reviewed by Steve & Jill Wooler in 2012 and March 2017

Black Rock Dreams from Grafton Beach

The Flamboyant Suite is one of the luxurious self-catering units in the striking and prestigious Black Rock Dreams condominium complex in Tobago's beautiful Stonehaven Bay. A major feature of this property is the direct access it offers to the natural, palm-fringed sands of Grafton beach.

This review is specific to Flamboyant Suite. It only applies in the most general sense to other units in the Black Rock Dreams complex.

Location

Stonehaven Bay lies between the village of Black Rock and the hamlet of Pleasant Prospect on what we refer to as Tobago's Lower Caribbean coast (region 2 in our maps).

Several of the island's best restaurants are located along, or close to, this stretch of coast road. The Seahorse Inn, perceived as one of the island's best restaurants, is situated just a 30-second walk from Black Rock Dreams. The more casual, but equally deserving, Fish Pot Restaurant is less than a mile away, at Pleasant Prospect. Tobago's leading Italian restaurant, La Tartaruga, is two miles further on, in Buccoo village. In fact, every restaurant in Regions 1 to 3 of our restaurant listing is within a 15-20-minute drive of the apartment.

Black Rock Dreams from the end of Grafton BeachBlack Rock village will be of little interest to visitors. However, Pleasant Prospect is home to a very useful mini-mart, a take-out pizza outlet, a couple of local bars and the only ATM cash machine in the area.

Every notable feature in the main Crown Point-Plymouth-Scarborough triangle lies within a 10-15-minute drive of Black Rock Dreams. Visitors are also ideally placed for tours of Tobago's beautiful northern coastline and rainforest. When one combines these factors, Black Rock Dreams undoubtedly boasts one of the best locations on the island.

The island is small, but few properties are within walking distance of more than one or two shops, restaurants, beaches or other facilities. Relying on private taxis is expensive. So, we strongly advise visitors to budget for self-drive car or jeep rental.
