Blue Haven Hotel - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

Mr & Mrs Wheatley from U.K. visited in February 2010 and awarded  Four out of Five

Wonderful location, lovely people, hotel fantastic, but...

Alison and my self got married at the Hotel through Thompsons 'signatures'. Thompsons (UK) said we could not get married on the beach which is what we wanted. Beulah John the Deputy Manager of Blue Haven sorted everything and we did just that, got married on the beach, Judith (Thompsons rep) and Beulah our witnesses. It was perfect.

During our stay we used taxi's, who will drop you off at one of those secluded beaches and pick you up later to take you to a local favourite restaurant and return home. A bit pricey but for a day and a driver expect to pay 250TT dollars, the local knowlege is well worth it.

While there we were lucky to take in some trips, fresh water Caymen's, birds of paradise, humming bird sanctuary, land crabs, leaf cutter ants, dived over the Japanese garden....well so much more...thanks Judith for organising these for us...

The hotel was delightful and all the staff were really lovely and a special mention to David who kept the private beach clean and looked after us with fresh coconut. I think there are two things which deserve attention. Firstly the restaurant does not do the hotel any favours. The breakfasts are provided with local foods and this is cool, however the evening meals are not so and I would recommend eating out in the evenings, there are plenty of other and good options avalable nearby. I am not sure why this situation is not resolved as there are enough comments over time to warrant the hotel senior management to do something...may be its a family, cultural thing, not too sure.

The second issue was in relation to the wedding photographer the hotel commissioned, Clement Williams. Unfortunately he did not clean his camera lens properly and the photos came out with blemishes all over them. The pixel resolution he used was of poor quality, this is not something which could be corrected. I emailed Clement about the issue in April 2010 and he said he would check, I guess he still is....

On the whole we would certainly go back again, may be renew our vows there in a few years. Tobago is a special place and if you go, go there sooner than later, stay at the Blue Haven and despite the issues, we loved it.

Be aware!

We went to Tobago to celebrate our 6th anniversary. Just 3 hours after arriving to the hotel, while taking a nap in the swimming pool area we were robbed by a 14 year old local boy, who was swimming in the pool. He pulled out my wifes bag (with my wallet and her purse) beside her chest. She woke up screeming and I ran after him. The Staff helped capture the boy and retreive him while the police arrived. We could find all our things back. We had to go to the police station to sign a statement. The mother of the boy was called and she told us she apologized about her sonīs behavior. Next day changing our original plan to stay all the day at the hotel, we rent a car and made a trip around Tobago to forget the episode. When we came back at the hotel, we went to the beach restaurant to have late lunch (3 pm). For the first time, we saw the security woman (just transfered from the parking lot to the stairs that connect to the beach) and she ask if we left our belongins in the room. At the beach, there was the boy playing with a group of 6 local teenagers with no remorse at all. This was a 2 day stay. While the Staff was embarrased and very helpfull we didnīt get any feedback or compensation from the manager/owner.

We booked dinner at BLUE HAVEN HOTEL and were surprised to find a very limited menu.

I chose the beef curry with banana option from about 3 main courses.

It arrived without the bananas - and when queried I was told they were too soft to cook. The meat was scrag end of beef - I got a cheap stew.

That's not good enough when you are charging $300 .

I'd advise avoiding this establishment - it's grossly overpriced and mediocre food .

They also expect $250 +++ for a bottle of Chilean plonk.

Deceptive as the building is nice and the the service on the face of it good ( but selling me a main course when you know the interesting).

Run by an Austrian who has no excuse for such a poor and cynically run restaurant.

Beautiful setting and beach, rooms OK,staff and management wonderful,food OK. this hotel lived up to our expectations. do not expect a modern sterile hotel. the Blue Haven is quirky, slightly jaded and charming.

My little daughter and me stayed for two days only. Definitely we will come back again next time. Why? The hotel is a spot of pure relaxation. We spent one whole day almost alone in the swimming pool. My daughter got even served chips to the pool. The hotel manager was so kind to give us special attention to make the stay as nice as possible by taking care of our room preferencies. The atmosphere of the hotel is great, especially in the morning with breakfast or in the afternoon sun. Also the Yoga class we attended gave our stay a special touch.

Not to forget to mention the quality of the restaurant. I had never eaten a Lobster like this! A great cook. Even the breakfast is worth just to go there! Lots of thanks to all the friendly and smiling staff members! Rica and N.
