I have been visiting the Tropikist for the past 10 years on and off and have been to other islands in between but Tobago is our favourite. We always meet people that have stayed before and are back again. We have found the service at the hotel a bit slow but then it is the Caribbean. But have always found the staff and owner of the hotel very pleasant and freindly. So everyone please don't be put off by one persons bad experience.

After browseing your review articles and noted all the negatitive comments made on Tropikist I had to respond. I am a regular visitor to the hotel and never had a problem with the Service / Staff or management. Tropikist is ideally located and I would certainly continue to visit. So would everyone please don't be turn off by one persons bad experience.

Tobago Virgin

I'm planning to visit Tobago, and the Caribbean, for the first time end May/early June with wife & kids (boys 14&11). I'm torn between Tropikist and Grand Courlan hotels. The setting, facilities and comments about Grand Courlan on this website make it a very tempting proposition, but I can take advantage of a promotional offer at the Tropikist which will cost me 1000 less. The comments about the Tropkist seem to be very mixed with some fairly derogatory reports. Should I take the risk at the Tropikist? Is Grand Courlan worth the difference? Which of the two hotels, if any, is most suitable for families whose parents want chill-out and kids love rainforests, snorkelling and activities?

Help - Tropikist Beach....   

Josie Venn

I am visiting Tobago next week with my family - husband and 2 small children and we were SOLD the Tropikist by our Tour Operator as a good hotel, good facilities, good for children etc etc..... I have been looking at your views on hotels (and may I congratulate you on an excellent site.... I now feel I know Tobago without having previously visited!!) and find that the Tropikist sounds apalling..... Has anyone a good word to say about this hotel?? To top it all we are on an All Incluside deal!! I now feel I am dreading my stay there and will just have to make the most of it.... I have been in travel for 15 years and feel as I have now been conned... Please help!!

Tropikist Swimming Pool   

Nicki Hare

My husband and I have stayed 3 times at Tropikist due to its proximity to so many local restuarants and bars in the Crown Point area, and excellent value for money. Most recently (Feb :) 03) we were very impressed by the new swimming which looks like it should be in a much more expensive hotel. Out of curiosity we went to visit the new Hilton hotel which has a rather disappointing pool and nearly got blown away as the wind blew so hard from the sea!

The new pool was I believe completed late 2001 and having visited a few of the other hotels (Turtle Beach, Coco Reef, Toucan Inn and Kariwak) is fabulous especially for children (we have 2). The freeform pool is extensive and surrounded by lush vegetation, has a fountain and swim-up bar. Other bonus's include the outdoor whirlpool (with sea views) and the original pool which is quiet and good for swimming laps.

Being an older style hotel the standard rooms are quite spacious although the bathroom was a bit small. All in all I felt the hotel offered great value for very relaxing type holiday. NB: the weekly "disco" is no more instead the hotel has occassional evening entertainment using local musicians.

The food was average although given the proximity to so many local places to eat this was not a problem (who wants to eat in the hotel all the time anyway!)
