My husband and I stayed at Cuffie River for 3 nights mid June.

Being low season we weren't sure what to expect but the standards were excellent. Regina was there to greet us on arrival, and she made sure we were well looked after for the whole stay - she has a wonderful way with people, and really makes you feel welcome as well as enjoying a good laugh!

We had changed around our dates not long before our arrival to ensure we could book into the executive suite and were not disappointed - the room was the largest we have ever stayed in, windows all round with stunning rainforest views, a beautiful sitting area, and an absolutely huge bed!

The food was the best we had during our stay on Tobago - we opted for the all inclusive package, and although there was no choice of menu for lunch and dinner we couldn't have faulted any of the dishes - in fact not having to make a choice was part of the relaxation! We also enjoyed the company of other guests (only 6 of us in total at that time), and found the evening meal in particular to be a great social event. The little hummingbirds which buzz around during breakfast were also a highlight.

Having been out and about around the island before arriving at Cuffie we chose not to stray too far during our stay there. When we were not eating or taking a nap in our room we spent time swimming in the elevated pool and walking some of the forest trails. We did quite a bit of walking by ourselves and had no difficulty picking out some good routes without getting lost - however we particularly enjoyed our walk with Desmond, who was able to spot many birds and interesting things that we had completely missed whilst out by ourselves. He is a great guide and very enthusiastic about sharing his home surroundings.

As you can see we found Cuffie river the perfect place to stay if you need a few days of total relaxation - just what the Dr ordered!!
