This was our first visit to Tobago and loved it. After reading some reviews we had a few reservations about staying at the Sandy Point Beach Club but weren't disappointed when we arrived.
The staff are the most freindly we have come across when travelling. They make you feel so welcome, they are like an extended family and will go out of their way to help you in any way.
The on site restaurant was fabulous with authentic caribbean food and we even managed to swap some recipes, so looking forward to trying those out.
The organised trips were excellent, we had Lincoln take us on the Sunday School trip and he tried to keep everyone together, we all felt safe and it was a joy to watch the pan band and see people having a drink and dance.
Another trip was to Gemmas restaurant incl the Argylle Falls, a stop off at the place they filmed the Robinsons Family film, a glass bottom boat trip and snorkelling in the Atlantic Ocean. Our driver/guide was excellent and inforamtive about the areas we covered.
BIG Dougie the diving instructor was also fantastic, very friendly and patient, we even managed to pass our second stage of the PADI stage - yippee. All the best to him and his wife on the birth of their daughter when the time comes.
Tobago is not a place to shop so don;t expect to shop till you drop remember you are there to relax "Tobago Time".
I agree with other reviews that certain areas of the complex require an upgrade as slightly basic, but still it was satisfactory for the time we were there. We had an extremely relaxing time.
The only downside we experienced was that we were broken into whilst asleep in our apartment. The Maintenance Supervisor (Mr Toby) was extremely helpful throughout the experince however we are disappointed with the General Manager who didn't once contact us to ensure we were okay or offer to move us to another unit.
On saying this it would not stop us from revisiting Tobago at all as these things can occur anywhere you travel.
Once again a big thank you to all members of staff for making the Scottish feel welcome.
