Tobago has a wide choice of holiday resorts, hotels and inns. Here is a list of every established Tobago hotel or inn, as ranked by myTobago readers. The CLICK HERE link will take you to the detailed listing on our main site.
12-bedroom Hotel in Runnemede, Tobago
The Cuffie River Nature Retreat is a unique, privately owned and run, 12 room eco-lodge. It is situated on the edge of Tobago's rainforest in the very centre of the island, about fifteen-minutes from Castara. The retreat is unquestionably the island's leading hotel for bird watchers but will be of equal interest to anyone seeking peace and tranquillity in a wonderful and natural rainforest environment. Children are allowed, but not encouraged.
We have stayed at the Cuffie River Nature Retreat numerous times over the years. It continues to hold a special place in our heart. The standards of accommodation are excellent and owner, Regina, continues to produce Caribbean catering without peer.
136-bedroom Holiday Resort in Store Bay, Tobago
The 135-room Coco Reef Resort is unquestionably Tobago's leading luxury holiday resort. A good hotel offering great food, fantastic staff and boasting its own delightful private beach.
The Coco Reef may not have the polished veneer and glitz of modern luxury hotels in other parts of the world, but the faded Colonial elegance and genuine warmth of the staff create an ambience that many guests fall in love with. Proof of this is a repeat rate that other hotels can only dream of. Visitors go on holiday to the Coco Reef, rather than going on holiday to Tobago and staying at the Coco Reef.
40-bedroom Hotel in Crown Point, Tobago
The Sandy Point Beach Club is a timeshare club. However, they offer short-term holiday rental of vacant apartments. The property is located at Sandy Point, immediately adjacent to the airport runway. Visitor comments about the Sandy Point Beach Club have been highly complementary and concerns about noise due to the proximity to the airport can be almost totally dismissed. The club offers a daily shuttle service to Pigeon Point and Mount Irvine beaches.
The Sandy Point Beach Club should NOT be confused with the adjacent small Sandy Point Village hotel, which suffers a very different reputation.
20-bedroom Hotel in Kilgwyn, Tobago
A recent addition to the Tobago hotel stock, Shepherd's Inn is a charming and quaint 20-room hotel just a few minutes' drive (or walk) from Tobago's airport. The hotel is superbly located for Store Bay and Pigeon Point beaches, as well as for all the other facilities of the Crown Point area.
Shepherd's Inn occupies premises formerly belonging to Toucan Inn and Bonkers Restaurant. After this ill-fated establishment went into liquidation, the property was purchased by Colin Shepherd of Sheppy's Auto Rental fame. After major investment and a total refurbishment, the new inn was launched, looking better than ever, with a unique local character and emphasis that is sure to make it a great success.
24-bedroom Hotel in Crown Point, Tobago
The Kariwak Village Holistic Haven is a small but highly-regarded 24-room hotel that sits amidst 2-acres of mature tropical gardens in Crown Point, bordering the airport. The hotel's restaurant is widely considered to be one of the best in Tobago. As indicated by the name, the establishment has a strong bias towards holistic activities.
10-bedroom Hotel in Crown Point, Tobago
The Hummingbird Hotel is a small, cosy family-owned (English/Trinidadian couple) hotel with 10 air-conditioned guest rooms. The hotel has a pleasant swimming pool and is located in a peaceful and quiet environment within walking distance of the airport, Store Bay and all the restaurants and facilities of the popular Crown Point area.
19-bedroom Hotel in Kilgwyn, Tobago
The Sun Spree Hotel is a small 18-room hotel located within a 10-15 minute walk of the airport, Store Bay beach and Crown Point strip. The property was operational under different management for a few years as the Mermaid Hotel.
18-bedroom Hotel in Plymouth, Tobago
The Changrela Cocrico Inn is located in the small town of Plymouth, on Tobago Caribbean coast. The small apartment hotel offers 18 rooms of varying size. Within walking distance of the beaches in Great Courland Bay and Plymouth Back Bay and the hotel has its own pool.
40-bedroom Hotel in Bon Accord Village, Tobago
Located between Bon Accord and Canaan and adjacent to The Shade nightclub, the 40-room Chic Boutique Hotel has three bars, a pool, restaurant, gym and spa. The hotel was previously listed as Green Palm Boutique Hotel.
31-bedroom Hotel in Pigeon Point, Tobago
Located directly on the beach of the Pigeon Point peninsula, the Conrado Beach Resort is just a short walk from all the facilities of the Pigeon Point Heritage Park and 10-minute walk from Store Bay. The two-storey hotel has 31 rooms and we understand that the accommodations are basic, but clean and comfortable.
55-bedroom Holiday Resort in Bacolet, Tobago
The Blue Haven Hotel is Tobago's premier boutique hotel. It is located just outside capital, Scarborough, immediately adjacent to stunning Bacolet Bay and beach. The hotel was one of Tobago's very first hotels. It reopened in 2001 following a 25-year closure. Fully restored and modernised, the hotel retains a traditional colonial style and ambiance.
We have stayed at the Blue Haven Hotel several times and can highly recommend it to anyone looking for high standards of comfort and to those who prefer the ambience of a smaller upscale hotel.
38-bedroom Hotel in Speyside, Tobago
Set in 46 acres of lush tropical grounds and backing glorious Batteaux Bay, the Blue Waters Inn boasts one of the most stunning locations on Tobago. The best reefs on the island are but minutes away and being situated on the edge of the rainforest, the opportunities for birdwatchers are just too good to miss.
The hotel has been operational for many years but suffered from lack of investment. We were keen to support this unique hotel but had little choice but to withdraw our earlier recommendation around 2008. Then, a new generation of the owning family took over and clearly saw the potential. The hotel has benefitted from a very major refurbishment in recent years.
We returned to the Blue Waters Inn in early 2018; the first visit for 10 years. What a transformation ï¿½ not just in terms of the accommodation, but more importantly in terms of the staff attitudes and catering. This small hotel is truly a gem deserving of serious consideration.
178-bedroom Holiday Resort in Lowlands, Tobago
With 178 rooms, the Magdalena Grand Beach & Golf Resort is Tobago's largest hotel. After opening in 2000, it operated until 2008 as part of the Hilton chain. The hotel was then fully refurbished and re-opened in 2012 under new management.
The Magdalena Grand is located on the beautifully landscaped Tobago Plantations development on Tobago's Atlantic coast, just a short hop from the airport. It has all the bells and whistles one would associate with a resort of this size. We have stayed at the hotel twice since it re-opened and on both occasions have been highly impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the excellence of the catering.
105-bedroom Holiday Resort in Mount Irvine, Tobago
The Mount Irvine Bay Resort (formerly Mount Irvine Bay Hotel & Golf Club), is one of Tobago's oldest and most established original hotels. The hotel has undergone a massive refurbishment in recent years and, what appears to be, a complete change in management philosophy. The 'Old Colonial' styling of the old hotel has been softened and now appears far more modern and appealing. After many years in limbo, we suspect that the hotel is now ready to resume its rightful place in the echelon of top Tobago hotels.
75-bedroom Holiday Resort in Crown Point, Tobago
The Crown Point Beach Hotel is located within walking distance of the airport, in Crown Point. The property offers 75 modest studio and one-bedroom rooms and cabanas with kitchenettes. Set in 7 acres of landscaped grounds, the hotel overlooks Store Bay.
54-bedroom Holiday Resort in Crown Point, Tobago
Located on the seafront, within a 5-minute walk of the airport, the Tropikist Beach Hotel provides basic accommodation in a three-story complex of buildings. The small beach outside the hotel is not suitable for swimming, but Store Bay beach is only a 5-minute walk away.
125-bedroom Holiday Resort in Black Rock, Tobago
Located in Great Courland Bay on Tobago's northern coast, the all-inclusive Turtle Beach hotel, owned by Rex Resorts, is relatively basic and somewhat unsophisticated, but does represent decent value for money. The hotel is situated right beside stunning Turtle Beach where Giant Leatherback turtles can regularly be seen laying eggs during the season.
With effect from 1st December 2018, the hotel is to be renamed Starfish Tobago Resort and will be managed by the Canadian Sunwing Travel Group in what Rex Resorts calls a "strategic alliance".
106-bedroom Holiday Resort in Grafton, Tobago
The Grafton Beach Resort offers 106 modest, but comfortable, rooms from a sprawling complex of multi-level buildings set on a beautiful hillside location overlooking Stonehaven Bay and Grafton Beach. The property regularly shares facilities with more upmarket sister-hotel, Le Grand Courlan Resort & Spa.
10-bedroom Hotel in Bacolet, Tobago
Located in Bacolet, the Half Moon Blue Hotel offer 10 rooms. The hotel previously traded as the Old Donkey Cart House.
51-bedroom Holiday Resort in Bacolet, Tobago
The Bacolet Beach Club is located on Tobago's Atlantic coast, in Bacolet, a residential suburb of Scarborough. It is now one of Tobago larger hotels, with some 51 rooms and suites. The hotel does have direct access to a very small beach but Bacolet Bay is just a short walk away or a 15/20-minute drive will take you to Pigeon Point or the popular Caribbean-coast beaches.
10-bedroom Hotel in Buccoo, Tobago
The Enchanted Waters Hotel is a small 10-room family-owned and run hotel and restaurant (Patino's). It is located just outside Buccoo village, just a 3-minute drive from Buccoo beach.
