“Very Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We have just returned from a 2-week stay at the resort. I can only comment on the apartment we had (2 bed with full kitchen) but cannot agree with other contributors who describe the rooms as 'in dire need of major upgrade'. We had a scrupulously clean unit with comfortable beds, new furniture, well equipped kitchen, clean and functional showers, quiet and efficient aircons, etc. The TV was rather older but was good enough for our purposes (keeping up with the news).
The pools and hot tubs were rather tatty but were properly cleaned and checked for chemical balance.
The staff were friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. If you are looking for the kind of accommodation provided in the swish hotels of Singapore or Dubai then you should probably not visit Tobago - it's not that kind of place! Whilst waiting for our plane home we were speaking to a couple who had spent their holiday at a 'more up-market' resort nearby where they had apparently been less than impressed with either the accommodation or the service.
We would recommend the Sandy Point Beach Club as one of the better RCI resorts we have stayed in.
The only real criticism I have is that WiFi was only available at a ridiculous price and should have been included in the utility charge. Fortunately we found a free Digicel hotspot at the Mall so were not greatly inconvenienced.

Overall, it wasn't a bad holiday; however the resort itself, and the rooms in particular, are in dire need of a major upgrade. The staff was great and if you go, make sure you take in the tours offered so you can see what the rest of the Island is like. Really enjoyed the trip to Speyside. Beautiful scenery along the south coast to the east end of the Island. Normally we would rent a car while on vacation and explore on our own; however seeing that all the vehicles were right hand drive, they drive on the left side of the road and the roads have many sharp curves, we chickened out. They offer shuttle service to one of the 3 closest beaches twice a day. The small Store Bay beach is an easy walk from the resort and we even walked to Pigeon Point beach one day, which took the better part of one hour. Was a bit concerned about the close proximity to the airport, but there was no problem.

This is a great resort, it’s unfortunate that there are no other resort options under RCI in Tobago or even Trinidad so there is nothing to compare too. In the end its a standard 3 star resort in my opinion.The staff is extremely friendly, check in was fast and easy. We stayed in a 1 bedroom and it had enough beds for like 7 people. It had 1 private room with a queen bed, then a large open room with a set of bunk beds, 1 twin bed and another queen or full all in the same space. It’s very close to the airport and if you know where you are going it’s an easy walk to the resort. We felt very safe at this resort (even walking outside at night) and had no complaints or issues with our overall stay. The ground was well kept for the resorts age. The room was very spacious and the kitchen was extremely stocked with pots, pans, cups, etc. However, basic hotel items such as shampoo, conditioners, shower cap, lotions etc was not available. I also wished the patio had lounge chairs so we could have relaxed on the patio. There was a mini market you can buy such items but one would expect an RCI resort to provide these items in the room. They had a washer and dryers but they was very old and the dryer didn't dry hot so it took forever to dry my clothes. (I believe maintenance was trying to fix the dryer after we told them about the issue). There is no 24 hour front desk so after 8 or 9pm you had to speak to security which would tell you to call back in the mornings to speak to the front desk when they open (which was around 8-9am). The had a small tennis court which you had to buy your own balls (again not expecting to buy balls at an RCI resort) and basketball court (I believe they provided the ball to play). The bar was nice. It was ashamed the water was too rough to swim in it but it was nice just to relax on the beach and watch the weaves come in. They do offer a beach shuttle with very limited pick up and drop off schedule. I really wish there was more resort activities. This resort is only a short walk to local restaurants and shops. We enjoyed Chef’s and Jade. Overall, we will be back (mainly because there is no other resort) and we enjoyed our trip to Tobago.

This holiday overall cost me the same as staying at Turtle Bay Beach Hotel all inclusive for 14 nights, which i did a few years ago. Although shopping and cooking in, i do drink, and we needed to hire a car really to get around, shop at supermarkets, etc. Although a shuttle to all the beaches was very good it was not necessarily at particularly convenient times, ie. not independent as having a car. I would also have preferred to eat good restaurant food, but needed to keep costs down!

Some staff very good. Clifton always at the bar, and excellent, makes a mean pina colada! Acousha the manager key to getting things right. Mini mart staff on site also pleasant and helpful. Other more junior staff needed some customer relation training!

I do think families fare better on this type of holiday, and Sandy Point Beach Club accommodation quite adequate and clean. However, some aspects very tired, ie. room towels worn out, pool could do with a resurface... Entertainment quite good when it was available but sad that it was rarely supported well by residents!

On site restaurant a bit sad, but next door hotel restaurant better, charges more, and very slow, but fantastic ocean views. Get there early! Only managed a couple of salad lunches there again due to spiraling costs.

Cheaper i am sure if you are a family on a budget and all sharing small apartment!

Beaches all fantastic and on site beach not bad except you cannot swim due to coral. Beaches locally were the highlight of this holiday for me personally.

Room Tip: Stayed in 3 different types of rooms, studio for a couple of nights then upgrade to a garden one bed...

Would not really recommend this place.

Positives are - great and fun bar and bartender. Make sure to attend African drum and limbo night. (But if you are in the 3 bedroom unit, don't expect to get to sleep until the bar closes). Unusual floorplans accommodate large parties. Nice hot tubs. Mini mart on the grounds has a lot of food stuffs.

Negatives are - rude staff. Made us change rooms with only 12 hours notice. With little explanation. We had to be packed and ready to go by 10 AM. (But they did move us to a nicer unit with ocean view). Grumpy staff nags about shoes left on the lanai

Room Tip: 3 bedroom unit huge but noisy - right next to bar Other units have nooks with bunk beds and can acc...

I stayed in Sandy Point Beach club with 5 of my work colleagues for 1 night. The hotel is a good choice for a big group of persons who are on a budget. There is a nice jetty with a bench that you could relax do some introspection etc. The grounds isn't bad, you could relax on the lounge chairs , sit in the hot tub or just watch the waves on the beach.

The negative about this hotel is the service. I am a stickler for Customer Service hence these details stood out for me. The front desk is untidy and old fashion which does not give the customer a good first impression. The Customer Service representative was not rude but not entirely friendly either. If you pay your security deposit in cash, you will get it back the deposit in a cheque. So credit card is the way to go. However we got back out deposit because all 6 of us badgered the customer service rep indicating to her we are just staying overnight. Sandy Point does not have the customer best interest at heart. And this is core if you are looking for somewhere to stay.

Room Tip: The rooms close to the hot tubs are nice

We enjoyed our stay here very much. It had a calm, tropical, friendly feel to it and was not that busy over the Christmas holiday. We stayed busy with things around the island and just used this as our point place to center things from. They have snorkeling gear, kayaks and fishing poles to use.....which we tried all. Next time we will remember to bring some of the resort's snorkel gear on some of the island's snorkel trip tours, as they usually did not provide fins on those. Transportation from the airport to the resort we just hopped a taxi as it took us and our belongings right there, and was inexpensive for what we accomplished - less than $10usd. For departure, we just walked to the airport after seeing the location of everything.
