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.

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

Extremely family friendly (my children are 8, 6 and 3 respectively) Staff customer service was on point. Food was excellent. Travelling during a pandemic was a bit unsettling and while i yearned for a change of environment I was still hesitant to visit my sister isle. Needless to say, all my fears were cast aside due to the level of service received at BBC. The cleanliness was exceptional. No exaggeration I am a neat freak. The views were all breathtaking from the restaurant to the room balconies. To date my favorite trip to Tobago yet. It was quiet, warm, inviting, you name it. What a paradise. Will definitely recommend. Read less

Really friendly Staff, amazing view and the food was exceptional. Only problem was the balcony wasn't clean during our stay and cleaning was inconsistent. We had to be moved because the Air-condition wasn't working in our original room. All round, the stay was amazing. Will definitely recommend
