Tropikist Beach Hotel - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

S. McDonald from U.S.A. visited in August 2006 and awarded  Four out of Five

Just wanted to say that I read all the negative reports on several sites and was a bit hesitant, however, from the moment of booking to our departure, the staff at the Tropikist bent over backwards.

Mr. Samaransingh and his staff made our stay an enjoyable one. The staff allowed us to keep our bags in the back office due to our early arrival and so that we could go to Store Bay and come back at check in. He was also always available at any time of the day and could be found working the breakfast buffet if a staff member was ill. When we noticed that our sliding door was broken, he had it fixed immediately and always had a smile on his face in greeting. The staff were always working early in the A.M. cleaning the pool prior to opening or pruning the shrubbery ..etc. but always bustling. Our room was always tidy and cleaned each day. I have stayed elsewhere in Tobago and paid more and the Tropikist wins hands down...

We have just (last Friday) returned from our first visit to Tobago and thought that some observations and (personal) opinions etc might be of interest.

We stayed at the Tropikist, room only basis though we did try their meals twice. OK hotel with a good location, the food was poor and very expensive for what it was. Also some minor improvements would make so much difference- decent towels, bedding that fitted the bed and air-con that could be adjusted without it leaking! Not to be totally negative though, sitting on their terrace watching pelicans fly across a Caribean sunset is pretty amazing!

Restaurants we tried in Crown Point- Ruby Lou's, friendly Canadian owner, good "home cooking", generous portions, reasonable prices though a limited menu. Dillons- superb mainly fish dishes, our best meals. The Pelican Reef, good varied menu, entertainment, good atmosphere even in the quiet season. Bonkers- very similar to the Pelican. At lunchtime the Waving Gallery (Store Bay beach facility) does excellent and very cheap food. We did notice that a number of restaurants mentioned in guide books were not open- presumably because we we were in the "quiet" season. Outside of Crown Point we only managed to eat in Jemma's Treehouse in Speyside-wonderful food in a unique setting, also an un-named bar in Scarborough- an "interesting" goat curry! For entertainment the Crystal Bar in Crown Point on a Saturday night was great fun and full of locals who REALLY know how to party.

We hired a car (watch the insurance- some only offer 3rd Party cover with a 7000$TT(!) excess).

Especially favourite places were Speyside and Charlotteville, if (sorry when) we return I think we would aim to stay in that area. The beaches at Englishman's Bay and Parlatuvier are also fantastic, we had the first to ourselves when we were there.

Overall- a great place, our first trip to the Caribean, we will be back!!! Sorry for going on a bit, editing is not my strong point!

My boyfriend and I will be visiting Tobago to celebrate the New Year. It's coming very close to booking a hotel, and I am still undecided. Ideally, I am looking for a small, charming,romantic hotel which is reasonably priced and offers good service,clean spacious rooms and is located close to a beach. Can anyone compare Tropikist, Toucan Inn and Sandy Point?
