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.

They even took us on a tour to the rainforest and prepared a tasty lunch set up at the entrance of the rainforest. I loves staying at the hotel and I absolutely love Tobago. I have been to other Islands in the carribbean but Tobago is like an untouched treasure. The people are friendly and the surronding nature is stunning! I hope to return some day.

Situation: On Feb 12th we made payment and booked for May 20th, 2021, shortly after PM closed down movement, our flights were cancelled. We were given information that because of the public health situation we will be allowed to rebook and to call when things reopen by end of August, so we called end of August and asked when is the latest date we have to make another booking, we were told Dec 20th, this was confirmed by email. Bacolet agreed that we could rebook a new date by Dec 20th, 2021. This was perfect because the staycation was originally a birthday get away, we decided that we will do it for another family member’s birthday. On Sun 12th Dec, 2021, we called to rebook as per the agreement and confirmation email, we were given inconclusive info by front desk staff with a view that they will contact us to firm up details and take our booking. No correspondence came through, our multiple calls went unanswered, so we sent a follow up email on Thursday 16th December, 2021 as a prompt, that our account needed some attention (the deadline Dec 20th was fast approaching) still no response. Today 19th Dec, 2021, we called from a different phone number and got through to Bacolet. We were told that we cannot book a second date and we will not be refunded our deposit. If we were told a week ago (when we called) that we had to utilize our deposit by Dec 20th we would have. Key take-aways for the one (1) booking we made (May, 2021): Bacolet penalized us for obeying the PM orders Bacolet penalized us because our flights were cancelled Bacolet penalized us because their staff denied to contact us with pertinent information Bacolet, kept our hard-earned money (in this pandemic) and refuses to honour their word Bacolet has admitted to miscommunication on the part of their staff i.e. incorrect info about deadlines and not following up with confirmation dates, but still refuses to provide compensation for their error. They also said they will have some meetings to work out internal communications (which has nothing to do with us and our reservations) Bottom line: We gave Bacolet over a thousand dollars to experience stress and disappointment with unmet expectations.

My Boyfriend and I had a great time at the resort. The staff was friendly and helpful. I arrived late because of missed flight and flight issues. And they adjusted my stay and even gave me an up grade. The room was nice with a nice view and very comfortable. We spent most of our time on the private beach and by the pool. Great value

The staff and the beach was the best part of staying at the hotel for us. The food at cafe havana disappointing, a limited breakfast menus was not the complaint but that the sausages were undercooked, bacon oily and salty, terrible bread and everything Else was tasteless. Coffee tasted burnt. We also had sandwiches for lunch, I did not get my coleslaw and sandwiches were soggie and tasteless. We stayed in a bay room on the ground floor for 2 nights, the bed sheets for covering with is paper thin so make sure to ask for a blanket like we did for the Second night. There also isn’t any dark out drapes in the room, so if you are light sensitive and likes sleeping in don’t count on that at this hotel. The room was also dated and had limited furniture so there isn’t much place to lay out items comfortably. The pool was merky and there was broken lounge chairs around the area. However the beach is shaded, cool and small. A very nice cove with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Overall, I would say that it makes me sad to have to write negative things about a local hotel But I do hope that these little improvements are made to provide a better guest experience. Such as maybe having guest stay at the better room when available and a little effort placed on the preparation of food. The staff however, were kind and friendly and we are grateful for the early check in and late check out that they provided to us. Read less
