Mount Irvine Bay Resort

Tobago, Caribbean

The hotel

Once a sugar and coconut plantation, this seemingly endless estate covers 18-acres of tropical gardens and a neighbouring golf course, which features distractingly beautiful sea views from every one of its 18 holes. Just by staying at Mount Irvine Bay Resort, you become a member of this exclusive and award-winning golf club, and enjoy reduced green fees. It’s one of the personal touches that make this private hideaway different from your average Caribbean resort. Sophisticated yet carefree, you can flit between its beach, large pool, five bars, and three restaurants, all at your leisure. But the waterfront is the hub of the resort, with surfers to watch, snorkelling to experience, and annual events like the Barefoot on the Beach New Year’s Eve parties and April’s Jazz on the Beach fringe festivities.

The ocean view afforded us an excellent sunset experience every evening. We had breakfast every morning and dined at the Sugarmill Restaurant on two nights during our stay. We found the meals to be delicious and of a high quality accompanied by excellent service. We took advantage of the convenient beach facilities, which allowed us to relax in comfort, while being pampered by the hotel's attentive staff. We are certainly looking forward to our next visit to MIBR! Read less

Customer service is lacking at the reservations desk. You switched my room which I booked 2 months in advance without notifying me. I supposedly got a renovated room but my key card did not work, the sink in the bathroom clogs and the wifi is sketchy. I DO NOT RECOMMEND!

The hotel is GORGEOUS, kind of reminds me of a Balinese setting. The whole area is beautiful and steeped in so much history! The food was amazing, and I love the fact that the private beach was so close-by. The golf course is also beautiful and I loved all the quaint little areas around!

Spent the weekend at the hotel lounging at the pool, the facilities were clean, our room was much bigger than I expected. The beach was clean but at this time of year the water is a little rough. With our borders still closed this mini staycation was good for my soul :-) Would do this again!
