Bananaquit met my family's needs very well. Very reasonable rates, clean, good location, but plain jane. I wasn't worried about my son damaging or breaking much since the loft was sparsely decorated. The air condition worked well as did most of the appliances. It had all the kitchen items needed to prepare simple meals. We were surprised by the goat yard out back, but they were not noisy. My son enjoyed the small pool, located next door. Our loft apartment had a small kitchen area downstairs, along with a couch, bathroom, and balcony. Upstairs were two beds, a television and closet. There were two large fans to help keep the air moving. We spent a lot of time out on the balcony, eating, enjoying the wonderful warm climate and watching all the animals. They provided a drying rack, to dry all the wet swimsuits and towels. My son enjoyed watching the little yellow bananaquit birds fly in and out of the apartment. At nights, we could see the bats flitting around. During the day, we saw numerous lizards, chickens, and even an opossum(?) The animals were surprising, but not bothersome. A very family friendly place.

Had a two week stay at this resort, which was very pleasant. The loft apartment was a good size for two people. Basic facilities, central and very quiet. The shared swimming pool is a added bonus and the staff were very helpful. Would definitely return.

Bananaquit was our first stop during our week in Tobago. Having never been to the island before I relied very heavily on this website while making the plans. Wanting to explore as much of the island as we could we planned to stay the first few nights at the southern end of the island, and the end of the week up north.

We stayed at Bananaquit for the first four nights. Upon arriving a the airport close to 9pm on a Saturday night we found we could have EASILY walked to the Bananaquit with our luggage, seriously maybe a 6 min. walk, don't waste money on a cab. We stayed in a second floor loft apartment. It had 2 beds with A/C that we never turned on, fan, TV & closet upstairs, kitchen, bathroom, sofa (which was a pull out bed) and balcony on the lower level of the apartment. We were super pleased with the amenities: big fridge, microwave, toaster oven and 2 burner electric hot plate. All the cooking and eating utensils you could want. Great water pressure and hot water in the bathroom. The apartments all look out over a cute courtyard with the coolest little chicken roaming there. The property in back of Bananaquit houses goats and sheep, however this added to the charm, there was no odor and the animals were relatively quiet. Our first morning at Bananaquit we were almost annoyed with the birds and all their chirping, then realized how nice it was to hear these sounds of nature. We did rent a car, which made it easier to go to Penny Savers, the local grocery store, but walked to Store Bay Beach, which is only about a 5 min walk. Also, very walk able to a few nice restaurants, convenience store, etc... There are a few parking spots inside the gate at Bananaquit, otherwise street parking works just fine too. The hotel next door has a great little pool that guests of Bananaquit can use. Don't worry about the noise being right next to the airport, it's a non-issue. I think the busiest day we heard 2 planes, maybe!

All in all, no real negatives about the place. If I had to choose something I'd say screens would have been nice in the sliding glass door and windows, I did leave with a fair number of mosquito bites. A colander would have helped in the pasta draining challenge. Otherwise can't think of any complaints. Bananaquit made a great place for us to use as a home base. We were able to explore the lowlands easily and return each night. We felt very safe (two single American girls) in the neighborhood even when walking past the local bars at the end of the road. You can't go wrong staying here!!!

This was our first visit to Bananaquit. It is convenient for the airport, local restaurants, Store Bay, and Pigeon Point is a pleasant stroll away. The owners are extremely friendly and very helpful. Our room was kept spotlessly clean and the bedding is changed regularly. It shares a lovely pool with the adjacent hotel. This is not the place for 5 star luxury but they were pretty well booked up, so that indicates what people think of the place. Make your reservations early. We will certainly be back again.

I've stayed in this guest house twice in the past year. I found the property to be adequate to my needs. Close to the airport, affordable, self catering and helpful owners. I would suggest this place to anyone in the market for an affordable self catering room.
