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.

Had a lovely time in June 2019. Spent 4 nights on the breakfast/lunch/massage package with room upgrade for booking 2+ nights. The place is a little run down, but nothing major or dangerous and you strongly see a lot of its style and grandeur. Also, it's clean - which I'm very fussy about. If you have an issue with stairs, you won't be able to… Read more
Had a lovely time in June 2019. Spent 4 nights on the breakfast/lunch/massage package with room upgrade for booking 2+ nights. The place is a little run down, but nothing major or dangerous and you strongly see a lot of its style and grandeur. Also, it's clean - which I'm very fussy about. If you have an issue with stairs, you won't be able to get to the beach or stay on higher floors. Being on your own private beach is amazing. Water was a little rough but manageable. Beach bar for lunch or drinks! Staff is friendly and accommodating (locals, Filipino, Venezuelan) - as Trini's say "dey act like dey want yuh business." The restaurant and front desk staff are especially lovely - the housekeeping staff was pleasant too! Breakfast was great. Lunch was on the small side (except the roti!) but decent. In addition to owning the property across the street, I hear they've purchased the house (mansion) next door to convert to a villa. Higher floor = better view above the trees I would recommend and stay again. Read less

The location is great but the hotel needs a lot of upgrade! We stayed there for one night and upon entering was informed there was no electricity because of power outage In the area due to weather condition. Come on now, this is 2019 .... have a back up generator. Anyway power came back about 15 minutes later and upon entering our room there was a huge puddle of water on the bathroom floor. I had a tough time sleeping as the pillows had a moldy smell(sigh) Staff was courteous and helpful. Breakfast was ok but I won’t stay here again ! Read less

Worse stay ever. Upon arriving at the resort everything appeared fine. After 20mins of being checked in to what was supposed to be a romantic getaway electricity was disconnected. After waiting 1hr no one called or informed us of what was happening. Upon trying to to get information from the front desk no one was willing to address our concerns. Upon sharing our concern and trying to get checked out to leave my husband was totally disrespected by a member of staff. All in all it was our worse experience ever. Beside the electricity which we understood they had no control over the manner in which they dealt with us was not appreciated. The breakfast selection was limited and tasteless. At this point we checked out and found another resort. Only gave 1 star cause leaving no stars was not an option. If your looking for somewhere to relax and unwind this is not the place . Read less

The staff were very friendly and accommodating at the hotel but not at the bar, the place needs an upgrade there were no lights at the pool and the beach bar had cats sleeping in it. When it was time for our lunch my husband got a dried wrap with dry chicken and a green salad which wasn't even dressed instead of a tropical chicken sandwich with fries and a coke slaw! For a first time experience it wasn't a great one and I will not be returning to Bacolet beach club. Read less
