Tropikist is a lovely little hotel. In walking distance to airport. We took a taxi to the hotel but walked on our return. Grounds are picturesque with nice pools and plenty of sunbeds. Also sunbeds on beach although swimming is not advised there. It is only 8 minutes walk to store bay beach which is beautiful with lovely calm sea. Food was nice… Read more
Tropikist is a lovely little hotel. In walking distance to airport. We took a taxi to the hotel but walked on our return. Grounds are picturesque with nice pools and plenty of sunbeds. Also sunbeds on beach although swimming is not advised there. It is only 8 minutes walk to store bay beach which is beautiful with lovely calm sea. Food was nice served by friendly staff. Cocktails were amazing. Our room on the second floor had a fantastic view of the Ocean. Loved it. We were caught up in the British airways strike and had our return flight delayed. Would like to thank the manager and hotel as we were able to keep our room till it was time to check in for our night flight which made such a difference to us. Read less

This was our 2nd visit to Tropikist this year so I have visited heaven twice! Excellent service from front desk staff, bar staff, dining room staff and housekeeping. Gary in the dining room - his efficiency, helpfulness and customer service again surpassed all expectations and contributed immensely to making our stay amazing. The layout of the compound enables a spectacular view of the sunset every evening. Daytime view is equally stunning. Cleanliness is obviously a priority here with the rooms,pools and grounds meticulously attended to throughout the day. The Manager, Carlton is accessible for any assistance and very pleasant to interact with. The meals were tasty and offered variety. We will definitely visit again and highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for 2 weeks arriving back home yesterday.

We stayed here for 2 weeks arriving back home yesterday. As said in other posts the front entrance does let it down, its not very welcoming at all, but after the reception it is really lovely, the grounds and pool are very well kept, clean and tidy, we did mention the front entrance to the General Manager and he did somewhat agree. The majority of the staff are lovely and smiley and happy, Dianne in the pool bar was so lovely and always chatty, the lunchtime girls Sharon and little Diane were so hardworking and always so friendly, Tyson in the bar in the afternoon and evening was lovely and made a very good 'mini' gin and tonic! Last but not least Gary who flies about, busy all the time, he is a star! Food for the breakfast and lunchtime is excellent but the evening meals did get a bit boring and samey towards the end of our holidays, but we had filled up at lunch so wasn't too bothered but a bit of variety would be good. Now a few negatives, sometimes in our last week we felt a little rushed at the evening meal, as if the staff wanted to get away early and you were putting them out by being there, this was the week that Gary was away, and the staff wasn't really that friendly on an evening either. As said before on other posts the pool does make your swimwear green, my husbands skin also went green and our hair went a bit green, it did come out in the shower, but I didn't realise how green it sent our clothes untill washing them and lots are very stained and probably unwearable again so do be careful when wearing light coloured clothes! On our last day we weren't being picked up untill 3pm but we had to check out our room at 11 am and sit around, just an extra hour would have made a big difference but the manager did explain that the hotel was going to be busy and they couldn't let us keep the room, so be prepared for this on your last day. Lastly we would like to say thank you Tropikist for a lovely holiday, Tobago is a lovely island and well worth a visit. Mark and Janet room 303 Read less

On arriving at this hotel you think what have I come to. The entrance really needs needs updating to make it look welcoming. Having said that the rooms were clean but looked a bit tired and the pool does send things green as even my white beard went green, but does come off when you shower. I would have liked to have the bar to continue serving… Read more
On arriving at this hotel you think what have I come to. The entrance really needs needs updating to make it look welcoming. Having said that the rooms were clean but looked a bit tired and the pool does send things green as even my white beard went green, but does come off when you shower. I would have liked to have the bar to continue serving after 10pm as this is a little bit early when you are on holiday! There is aircraft noise but being that close to the airport I would expect nothing less but this did not spoil my holiday. Now the postives! I found the food of good quality and tasty . The staff were excellent and any problems were dealt with immediately. There is a small gym containing a multi-functional piece of equipment and a bench which was adequate for my needs I enjoyed my stay and the view from my room was fantastic and the grounds were looked after. It is shame about the first impressions and if this could be sorted this hotel woulld receive more favourable posts Read less

This location was so excellent. There is a sunset viewing lounge which we went to each evening to catch the spectacular sunset, that was the highlight of every day for us. Shuttle available to go to Pigeon Point, and other beaches are in walking distance (though I recommend taking a taxi because that sun is a scorcher!). Rooms were well maintained… Read more
This location was so excellent. There is a sunset viewing lounge which we went to each evening to catch the spectacular sunset, that was the highlight of every day for us. Shuttle available to go to Pigeon Point, and other beaches are in walking distance (though I recommend taking a taxi because that sun is a scorcher!). Rooms were well maintained (the only issue I had was with the height of the shower, but I'm 6ft 3"). I recommend an ocean view. Highly recommend the breakfast -- they have local dishes combined with the continental stuff, and dinner was very reasonable. The grounds are awesome. Very well-maintained and picturesque. Staff were also very helpful. Definitely will stay here again! Read less
