Bananaquit - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

Kate Collier from U.K. visited in July 2007 and awarded  Four out of Five

We arrived at the Banaquit after having to leave our booked accommodation in Castara in a hurry as we needed to be in Crown Point for family reasons. We literally got dropped off at the airport with our bags and no where to stay! Luckily, I had read lots of information on this website before going to Tobago, and so had a few ideas as to where to look for accommodation.

I enquired in person as to availability and price at Banaquit, whilst my boyfriend waited outside with our bags! I was greeted by the very friendly and helpful owner, who offered the lowest price of anywhere we tried, (there were a lot!) and allowed us to check in immediately, a big relief I have to say!

The apartments were excellent value, and really saved the end of our holiday. The apartment itself was large, with a perfectly adequate kitchen and bathroom, clean towels and effective air-conditioning. I really liked the private terrace outside, with the a table and chairs, overlooking a garden area with a mango tree. There was also access from this garden area to the adjacent hotels swimming pool, through a pretty gateway, which was available for our use. This pool was clean and plenty big enough, a real bonus in budget accommodation of this type. The apartment was set back from the road and shielded by the owners house, and so experienced little noise despite its very central and convenient location. Nothing was more then a walk away, from two of the best beaches on the island, Pigeon Point and Store Bay, to numerous restaurants to suit any budget, and the airport itself.

All in all, these apartments are a great budget option, with all the necessities in a great location and the benefit of a nice pool and helpful friendly owners. The only criticism I can think of is that they are a little dated, and could probably do with an overhaul to prevent them becoming a little shabby.

D Forde from Trinidad visited in October 2006 and awarded  Three out of Five

We visited Bananaquit as a group of 5 and were fairly comfortable in the 2 bedroom suite with pull out sofa. The large external deck was a nice amenity, along with the self service kitchenette. However, the washroom and kitchen areas could have been a bit cleaner to receive guests and this was a bit disappointing to us on first arrival.

The hostess/owner was very unobtrusive which suit us just fine. Access to the small pool is through a neighboring hotel/guest house, however, I don't think many people go to Tobago for the pools. Altogether, Bananaquit is conveniently located, fairly priced and comfortable.

Angus Wood-Salomon from Canada visited in August 2006 and awarded  Five out of Five

Fantastic, we stayed in the large front room that had a large nook that could sleep about 10 people, it also has a bedroom with A/C on the main floor, plus a kitchenet with stove and fridge plus all the utensils necessary.

It was very close to the beache (Store Bay), 10 min walk but most of all the Bests were great hosts.

We were able to rent a vehicle just opposite where we were and there were a lot of food outlets availble.

We enjoyed so much that we always recommend it to our family and friends in Trinidad and Canada.

This was our second year staying at the Bananaquit. It is located in walking distance from the airport, local restaurants, Store Bay, and even Pigeon Point (however a little hike). The owners of this apartment style hotel are extremely friendly and very nice. Our rooms were always very clean, and for the money you really cant beat it. If you are looking for a 5 star, luxury hotel, with maids that wait on you hand and foot this is not the place. If you need something go ask for it and it will be provided with a smile. They are always booked so make your reservations early, both time that we have stayed at the Bananaquit they had repeat customers like ourselves, and from I am told by the people that stay there and the owners, the majority of their customers are repeat business. Last year we went with five people, and this year four. Both times having more than enough room. We will be back again next year, as we love our Bananaquit.
