The hotel views over the sea where fantastic - sunset and sunrise not to be missed.
The food was basic but its a little island at the end of the day, I dont recall seeing a Harods Food Hall there lol.
The staff are more than willing to go out of their way to offer help and assisitance. I had a problem with an alleric re-action whilst I was there and the world and his wife wanted to help me out with either piriton or taking me to the pharmacy.
There is not much in the way of entertainment but who wants a bag impression of Elvis or a Karokee machine anyway.
Sunday school seemed to be the highlight of everyone's week but on returning to the hotel at 23.15 the bar had been shut for the night.
All in all you get what you pay for and this is not a bad hotel at all

Yes, it's very laid back - but which carribean island isn't. Don't forget we lead very hectic lives in Britain and these people do not understand why we are in such a rush when we are on holiday.
The hotel was in the middle of a painting frenzy when we arrived as the rainy season is just about over, but as it is a 3 star hotel you cannot expect 4 star looks and treatment.
The entertainment was bad for the first week but had improved in the second week - look out for exitic vibrations, they were there twice in the second week and are great.
The food was of a 3 star standard, so don't expect lobster unless you want to pay for it. Lunchtime was mainly burgers, sandwiches or salads and the evening meals were chicken, fish and one of beef, belly pork or lamb, with various veg, rice or sometimes pasta.
If you get bored with the meals, treat yourself to a meal at SYP'S - outside the hotel and turn right, it's next door - and you can have your steak and lobsters or curried prawns and garlic bread. Try the garlic roast potatoes if they are on the menu - they are delicious (and I'm not keen on garlic).
We would most certainly stay there again and all the rooms have sea views which is nice.
I got bitten to death with the dreaded mozzies but my wife and indeed most of the other guests seemed to be immune. I later found out that everytime I went to the toilet at the bar I was being eaten by them, so after I avoided the toilet I was OK.

The hotel is good, quiet.
The food, well...not too bad, enjoyable, breakfast was nice,it's nice to visit and have local food, most of the times, the other English guests found it boring, but hey..you're on their island!
The room was clean, comfortable, it was nice to wake up and look out at the ocean, (ask for room 58 or 59) they have fantastic views!!!
Keep it clean, enjoy your vacation and make sure to inform the manager, Mr. Samaroo- if you need any stuff whilst on vacation, he will get you set right.
Enjoy.............see you guys in Tobago next year..

The staff at Tropikist was really helpful.
The hotel was full for most of the time we were there, that means good business.
The hotel needs a face lift, but they are in the process of renovating the hotel which is a good sign, our room was lovely, spacious, it was really huge, I was surprised,we had lots of space, a huge walk-in washroom and the best view from our balcony.
The scenery is beautifully landscaped and kept.
The managers party was nice, it's held upstairs the restaurant, and watching the sun set whilst you sip on some local rum punch was breath taking!
