Offering a choice of 14 low-grade studios or 3 somewhat primitive two-bedroom chalets, the Canoe Bay Hotel & Beach Resort is a sad demonstration of the negative side of Tobago.

Canoe Bay Beach Resort is a recent development of a handful of two double bedroom "Villa Apartments" and 14 one bedroom apartments, situated in a private 44 acre estate right on idyllic Canoe Bay Beach.
The private resort area offers security and peace, with few others sharing the beach on most days. Stroll or picnic amongst the lawns, thatched gazebos and picnic tables. Enjoy the swimming pool with deck and loungers, newly completed in 2006.
The beach itself is wide and the sea shallow and calm, ideal for children, with some good snorkelling to be enjoyed.
There is a beach bar/restaurant, with freshwater showers, toilets and changing facilities - although the apartments are situated on the beach if you want to pop back instead. The restaurant offers breakfasts and light lunches only
All apartments are fully self-contained with air conditioned rooms with private bathrooms, television and patio fully equipped. The two bedroomed apartments are referred to as "apartment villas" as there are just three next to each other and they really do feel like stand alone villas once relaxing inside. These have full kitchens. The one bedroom apartments have local TV and kitchenette facilities.
Canoe Bay is conveniently situated just 15 minutes drive from Crown Point Airport, Store Bay and Pigeon Point, or from Scarborough Town in the other direction. Although the beach lies on the windward, Atlantic side of the island adjacent to the Hilton Hotel & Tobago Plantations Resorts, the sea is calm here, an offshore reef providing shelter for a natural lagoon, where swimming is safe for all.
Housekeeping service, all linens and bath towels are provided, beach towels on request.

My BF family stayed there and I joined them for a few days. Tobago is magnificent but this resort is in very poor shape, with uncaring unfriendly staff. Very disapointed.

Stay at the villas this weekend and I must say it was the worst. It is terrible, the cost per night was $770.00 . We stayed two nights and for what we were charged it was so disgusting. The place was nasty, the bathrooms stink, the Ac leaked water on our heads , the kitchen cupboards was in a dilapidated state if you can call it a cupboard. No Ac in th hall only bedrooms. I will be posting pics of the condition the villa was in. This place will never get my business again.
