2 Weeks in Tobago

A November 2004 trip to Trinidad and Tobago by Greg&Kathy

Quote: We absolutely loved staying at Sandy Point Beach Club. Tobago itself was one of the nicest places we have ever been. There was so very much to do and see. There were also wonderful people to meet.

Overview

Arnos Vale Beach is not to be missed--start your day there for amazing off-the-beach snorkelling, and have lunch right there at the hotel. Then, at 4pm, they offer tea with the birds, worth every penny even though neither of us is crazy about birds--we went twice. Also down the road is Arnos Vale Water Wheel Museum, and the restaurant here is excellent but pricier than the beach bar. The catamaran trip up to Englishman's Bay is great; even if you do not like snorkelling, the scenery is incredible. Meet the people, and do not limit yourself to the more mainstream restaurants and bars, since the off-beat ones were the best and had the best deals. One place close to the airport, which I believe was calle...Read More

Best Things Nearby:Patsy's Resturant, Store Bay Beach, Arnos Vale Beach/HotelBest Things About the Resort:The people. People at the resort overall were wonderful. Resort Experience:Sandy Point Beach Club is located on a beach right next to the airport. The beach has rocks, so swimming right there is not a great idea, but Store Bay is only a 5- to 10-minute walk away, and the resort also offers free shuttle to Store Bay and Irving Bay. Also, we typically enjoy a quiet area for a holiday, but you, believe it or not, do not end up noticing the planes from the airport unless, like us, you sit in the bar at night and watched them coming in (actually interesting). ...Read More

For about $20 Canadian, you start off with soup of the day, then have a salad, and then you have your choice of main courses, i.e. pork, chicken, shrimp, fish, lamb, or beef. All items are served with a large assortment of side dishes. After your main course, there still is dessert to come. We went there twice and were not ever disappointed.

Cheap and great! Beer and rum were both about $1.20 Canadian. Food was cheap and good. We had cow heel soup, $5, and there was enough for two of us. I also tried pig tail soup, fish and chips, and chicken and chips, all around $5-7. All were excellent and fresh. It's a great place to stop in for a beer and lunch and meet locals. You'll meet more that one neat person there, including a guy nicknamed Joe, who helped us purchase fresh lobster at unbelievable price. We also met other people through him.
