Blue Waters Inn

Tobago, Caribbean

The hotel

Set within 46 acres of lush tropical grounds, upon its own private bay, the Blue Waters Inn not only offers an idyllic, peaceful location — perhaps even the most beautiful on Tobago — it’s a very friendly place to relax too. With views of the turquoise ocean from almost every angle, the gently shelving beach offers opportunity galore for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. In fact, this beachfront hotel boasts its own on-site PADI diving facility, so don your wetsuit and explore a wonderful world underwater, with sites such as Angle Reef, which is perfect for beginners to the more challenging Japanese Gardens, Blackjack Hole and London Bridge. Bird watching is another favourite pastime, the surrounding rainforest is home to many exotic species. Small and intimate, the hotel is nonetheless perfect for families as well as couples with rooms overlooking the beachfront and ocean, and freestanding bungalows for those seeking something a little more spacious. Dining is at Aqua, serving sumptuous à la carte specialities and some of the most delicious cocktails you’ve tasted!

The location is very remote from the airport while the setting is super excellent overlooking the bay and little tobago. we stayed here for a week with a group of divers and the only thing that was noticably bad was the food service. The restaurant ran out of many things such as whipped cream, steak, blue cheese fish etc etc. The service was extremely slow with dinner taking on the order of 3 hours every night. we started preordering our dinner around 3 PM but that did not expedite anything. While the resort was nice, the service was terrible for every meal 3 times daily 7 days. Read less

In its own private bay the Blue Waters Inn was an amazing oasis of calm. We enjoyed watching all the birds at the feeders especially the hummingbirds and seeing the turtles swim in the bay in the mornings was just fabulous.

We stayed at Blue Waters Inn for the final 2 nights of our travels around Tobago. The hotel is quite far out of anything else in Tobago so it was a lovely romantic secluded few nights. However, we decided to do a boat trip to Little Tobago so we spoke to the gentlemen who sit just outside of the hotel grounds to arrange this (at the recommendation of the hotel staff). I would strongly suggest that no one does this and arranges something privately. We paid upfront for the tour at a rate that was stated in a tour guide leaflet. We went on the tour with two other couples. After the tour finish and we were the last to leave the boat, the tour guide cornered us and demanded that we pay more (though, when we spoke to the other couples, we paid the exact amount that the others had paid). When questioned as to why we should pay more, we got no reason, We stated that we had paid the correct amount and left. Throughout the rest of our stay, this man followed us around the whole resort. This included, following us to our room and waiting outside. I was very very scared. We complained several times and was told that staff would speak to him. There are signs everywhere in the resort saying only customers are aloud past a certain point, however, this man was aloud to roam freely and harass us with no consequences. He only did this when we were on our own, when we were speaking to others, he would walk past us. He was very intimidating and this was completely unacceptable. The staff did nothing. The several times we spoke to the staff they told us that he is not affiliated with the hotel (yet he was aloud to roam around the hotel grounds) and they recommended him to us! Completely ruined our experience there as i was fearful throughout. Read less

Fantastic place to just relax , we stayed for 4 nights at end of 2 week trip, Food was as good as anywhere we ate in Tobago, Jason makes the 2nd best omlettes anywhere ( my wife may read this ). Restaurant service always friendly. Rooms comfortable and directly overlooking the beach. Boat trips available to Little Tobago from Hotel jetty ( check both companies for price deals). The only negative. We were initially booked in to room 10 , the room itself is fine however it is on the end of the block and on the outside walls are the aircon units for the whole block which buzz all night . We complained and were moved for remaining nights. Would have been a sever problem if no other rooms had been available. Management are aware of this problem and should discontinue letting this room or substantially discount. Saying that I would gladly return anytime and would have given 5* apart from room 10 Read less

We stayed at the Inn for four fantastic days. The service was second to none with a staff that was consistently friendly and helpful. Particularly we must mention the outstanding effort that the main chef, Jason, made to provide us with tailored, delicious and healthy vegetarian meals each day. Our room was on the beach front with spectacular views, scenery and soothing sounds of the ocean. The food, ambience and personable service made our stay an exceptional one. We will be sure to return. Read less
