Bacolet Beach Club

Tobago, Caribbean

The hotel

You could easily forget you’re just a mile from the island’s capital, Scarborough, at Bacolet Beach Club – in fact, you could easily forget everything. Tucked away on a crescent bay, but just a drive from top Tobago sights, it has an intimate and exclusive feel. Its 60 rooms and suites each has a stunning sea view, a balcony to lap it up from, and a spot just a stroll from the bay’s secluded, almond-tree shaded sands. Having been dressed by Gloria Jones-Knapp – an islander and one-time European fashion model – the rooms have a calm Continental chicness, with VIP luxuries like four poster beds draped in billowing white fabric. And its Cuba-meets-Asia dining venue, Café Havana, adds to the romance – reached by a bridge, set over three tiers, and with ocean views as you dine and sip cool club cocktails.

Service at the hotel was good, they changed our room because of poor internet quality. The beds are very firm and just our backs but otherwise room was okay. Restaurant service was very poor, got all our meals elsewhere.

My hubby and I recently took a mini-vacation and choose Barcolet Beach Club for our stay. It was one of the best decisions we made, as the hotel was full of unexpected surprises, amazing lush scenery, and impeccable service. We received a complimentary room upgrade, which was very large, clean, and comfortable, with an amazing view. The WiFi connection was excellent and consistent throughout the hotel. The location was nothing short of beautiful, with a mini bamboo cathedral over an idyllic walkway, which made for a very romantic setting when we strolled to our meals every day. Meals were hearty delicious and filling. Housekeeping was on point, and we noticed the constant sanitizing being undertaken during the day, by the housekeeping staff. We would like to say special thanks to the following individuals they are worth an honorable mention for their stellar service. To your reservation team, and to Renee whose display of tact and professionalism was truly appreciated. Renee your intervention regarding the dinner mix-up was excellently handled and it was a perfect example of customer-centric service. To Natalie and Hector, thank you for your assistance and provision of information, I would also like to commend you on your fantastic command of the English language. To the entire team at BBC we extend our heartiest gratitude to you for making our stay comfortable, enjoyable, and hassle-free. We look forward to returning. We highly recommended Barcolet Beach Resort Read less

I wish I could give this zero stars. This place is RUN DOWN!!! For the price definitely NOT worth it! Grass all over the property unkept!... 3 pools were given access to , one was green and dirty!! , GARBAGE!!! Around the pool area. The wifi keeps buffering, the food sucks!!!.. the pancakes were tough as dumplins!, baked beans SALTY, eggs smelt fresh(didn't eat it) some of the Bacon was served UNCOOKED !! The staff can barely speak English mostly phillipinos,and what looks like Spanish STAFF, Saw one local staff at checking in (No discrimination ) BUT THEY WERE NOT genuinely friendly.. door to the balcony doesn't lock that was a concern... we had to ask for fresh towels given our stay was over 2 nights. We were the only people staying at this resort so making our stay a good one was supposed to be on the top burner given Covid. Plastic cups instead of glasses , dingy robes it's one of the worst I've experienced. WILL NOT RECOMMEND!!!! Read less

Nice hotel with access to a private beach, good starting point for trips around the island. Room with a sea view, large and comfortable- thank you. You can easily walk to the center of Scarborough about 2km.
