Bacolet Beach Club

Tobago, Caribbean

Virgin rating

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.

The reason I would not go back is because of how they handled the following situation, At about 9pm I realized that I was not getting any water d when I called the front desk they said that they would look into it.

I called back a few hours later as I still was not getting any water. She mentioned that I was the only one complaining about the issue so I asked if I could be moved to another room. She proceeded to tell me that it was the end of she shift.. I went downstairs to speak to someone and I saw that there was no one at the desk and it was dark. I immediately left and went to a different hotel. Read less

SCAM,SCAM SCAM!!!! DO NOT BOOK BACOLET BEACH CLUB or HALF MOON HOTEL!!!! SCAM, SCAM SCAM!!!! First off sketchy, sketchy, sketchy. I didn't even arrive yet and I am getting scammed. I booked this hotel through Hotel.com. I chose the option to 'Pay When You Arrive.' So why is it that three hours later, I got charged $285.00. I was charged by a hotel called "Half Moon Hotel". I was furious. WTF!!!! I immediately called Hotels.com. I was then told that "Half Moon Hotel" is a sister company. This hotel is located directly across the street from each other. I was informed that the hotel policy is to charge the room instantly at booking. This fraudulent charge occurred to insured I will arrive. Also to assure that I will not cancel. This was all done without my permission. Then when I asked to cancel I was informed I must wait five business days for my refund . I was furious! Hotels.com said they are not responsible for this fraudulent charge. I never approved this charge at all!!!! WTF Bacolet Beach Club scammed me and I didn't arrive yet. I will inform everyone on our family trip to NOT book with Bacolet Beach Club or Half Moon Hotel!!! This is a horrible representation for the hotel industry in Tobago. Read less

Booked Half Blue Moon hotel opposite but was told the room I booked was being renovated, allocated nice room in Bacolet Beach Club but had to move after 2 days due to failed water supply, had one evening without internet, hotel needs tidying up, rubbish not disposed of (paint tins/rubble) poolside needs weeding, staff standard variable, some staff appeared disinterested, others worked their socks off and couldn’t help enough and were lovely! Describes itself a beach club but beach was unusable due to masses of seaweed, and beach bar was closed. Staff and Facilities were limited but pools were nice and kept clean and food in restaurant was good. Read less

My husband and I stayed for two weeks at the end of February at this gem of a hotel owned by Gloria and Reinhold. All members of staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and looked after us very well. Ricky was great driving us to and from the many places we visited on the island. Nick and I were surprised how careful the island was in protecting it's residents and tourist from Covid 19, precautions were taken in all restaurants, shops, the beach and places of interest even the outdoor market, we thought that if these precautions had been more widely known it would have possibly increased the number of tourists visiting the beautiful island. We joined the owners and staff on a Friday evening for their popular beach bbq held on the hotels private beach. The food was good plenty of choice, the ladies who cleaned the bedrooms were very thorough and provided us with fresh towels daily. Read less
