“Peaceful Getaway in Paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2006

My husband and I celebrated our 5th anniversary at Footprints - Lovers Retreat - in June 2006. It was wonderful. Lovers Retreat is tucked into the hillside and surrounded on 3 sides by hills. From the verandah you can look back and see the sea and sky meet over the trees. The picturesque setting must be seen to be believed. The location is unspoilt and the natural beauty takes your breath away. The infrastructure blends into the landscape in harmony with nature. NOTE: There is contruction underway at the resort as they renovate and add new facilities under new management. The renovation never got in our way, though - no noise, no dust, no interruptions.

The staff is great, and the service is excellent. From the first night we were already trying to decide when next we could return. Our young sons went with us, and enjoyed the pool, jacuzzi and beach immensely. The beach is secluded and clean and peaceful. The food is excellent! We were so sad to leave. The staff did everything they could to make us feel welcome and really made us feel at home. Our trip was nothing if not memorable. We did not want to go back home and we will definitely visit again!!

My husband and I stayed in Tobago for a week. We were first checked into the Hilton which for being one of the newest resorts, is sorely lacking in attention to detail. In search for a true Tobago experience we discovered one of the most beautiful locations on the island. Footprints, under new management, was fabulous. Our lodging was situated atop a cliffside, the moonlight caressed the surf below and lulled us to sleep each night. The cuisine was true island recipes with smoked herring for breakfast and ginger coconut ice cream in the evening. The service of all the people was impeccable with the attitude that they were there to “facilitate and serve”. By the time we left, we felt like we were leaving family. As one of the other guests said, “this is heaven”.

Large family reunion over the Xmas week. The footprints team, led by Marian and wonderfully assisted by her son Corey, did a superb job. Everyone was totally at ease and had a wonderful time. Its a place with fabulous privacy and quiet. It also has spectacular views. The footprints team couldn't do enough to be helpful and accomodating. Wonderful memories of Tobago thanks in very large part to them.

We stayed at the Footprints Resort for one week and it was quite an experience. I loved the setting and the look of the restaurant right from the start. The rooms didn't look like European/North American standard at all, but everything was always clean - and I never had my own hammock before. The staff was very nice and helpful and the food was great. And it truely lived up to its name "Eco" Resort with all the animals around the hotel (and the frog in the open shower).

We stayed at Footprints as the second part of our honeymoon in June, aiming for total seclusion in beautiful and comfortable surroundings. The resort has fantastic potential and it is in a stunning setting. However, the accommodation was very disappointing, grubby and dirty, badly maintained and managed. We actually ended up leaving a couple of days early to finish our honeymoon in much more inviting surroundings.

We have just returned from two days at Footprints Eco Resort in Tobago. We were booked to stay at another spot nearby and had headed out to explore before arriving at our intended destination. We saw the sign for Footprints and drove down to have a look...and within minutes changed our plans so that we could remain at this wonderful place.

Footprints has clearly seen better days. In the short 7 or so years since it was built it has certainly deteriorated. The upkeep on a place like that must be extensive, and it certainly is in need of more maintenance. And there are many, many nicer beaches in Tobago. And much more to do in other resorts.

But we will go back to Footprints. The four units facing the bay are wonderful, with spectacular views, privacy, and a hammock outside our door. Our king sized bed was very comfortable. We loved the bathtub/shower with the little garden right by the tub. We slept to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. We helped Kirk to pull back the "retractable" roof in the dining area to watch the moon and stars as we ate. We had a drink in the sea water hot tub and watched the sunset. And we ate wonderfully cooked fish, curries, dahl, and home made ice cream.

The atmosphere is completely low key and relaxed. There is no pretention whatsoever. Privacy, intimacy, water, birds, stars....what more could you want for a short stay.

Footprints is not for everyone if you're a Hilton aficionado you may not enjoy the pastoral grounds, unfettered wildlife, crashing surf, or charming help. On the other hand, if you revere local color, languid days, and a staff that seeks to please you ll love it!!!I just spent two of the most relaxing weeks in recent memory at Footprints, where the sounds of the sea lulled me to sleep every night. My beloved lounged in the Jacuzzi above the beach for hours on end, getting out only for another Caribe I found the rooms airy and delightful, perched above the bay in the treetops I felt like I had my own tree house on a tropical island!The food was fresh and delicious and provided insight to T&T cuisine. My boyfriend s birthday was New Year s Eve and the staff took great pains to create a special cake in his honor (not to mention cater to his every culinary craving!)Footprints provides a potent memory of all that is lovely about Tobago...
