The Mount Irvine Bay Resort (formerly Mount Irvine Bay Hotel & Golf Club), is one of Tobago's oldest and most established original hotels. The hotel has undergone a massive refurbishment in recent years and, what appears to be, a complete change in management philosophy. The 'Old Colonial' styling of the old hotel has been softened and now appears far more modern and appealing. After many years in limbo, we suspect that the hotel is now ready to resume its rightful place in the echelon of top Tobago hotels.

The updates to the hotel are good but we felt the hotel lacked character particularly any Caribbean feel. The room was a good size but would have benefited from a few pictures to add a little character and the doors to the balcony had not been renewed and should have been! The bathroom was very tastefully refurbished, the only comment being it took a long time for the water to get hot, possible due to there being very few other guests in the hotel and we were a long way from the boiler. The golf course (one of the reasons we choice this hotel) was sadly in need of a huge amount of TLC, one of the worst courses we have ever played so bad we ended up going to the Magdelana to play our golf, though the staff at the Mount Irvine did say it was part of the master plan to bring the course back to its former standard but were a little vague on timing. The beach area although not large was excellent, the sun loungers and umbrellas all brand new and a nifty device that screwed into the sand to hold the umbrella upright. The shower area was old and needed updating and the bar area was staffed but had limited drinks and food had to be brought down from the hotel so it took a while to arrive but we were there in low season and near the end of our stay it looked like they were getting ready to open the kitchens at the beach. The restaurant was fine, we had two very nice evening meals during our two week stay and breakfast was always good , enough choice and pleasantly served by by the staff who were always friendly and welcoming. Would we stay again??? if I could be reassured the golf course had been brought up to scratch, yes. The hotel is in a nice position, friendly staff, good eateries reasonably close by, good beach makes it worth another stay, but sort the golf course out!!!
