As usual Tobago does not quite fit the mould when it comes to the classification “hotel”! Yes there are some typical hotels which just have rooms and suites and various dining options. These include La Magdalena, Bacolet Beach Club, Kariwak and Half Moon Blue. However there are also other options which give the guest more choice in that the accommodation is fully equipped for self catering yet there are some hotel facilities on site such as a bar, restaurant and on site manager and in some cases a shared pool. This arrangement gives more flexibility in that you can opt to cater for yourself for some of the time and usually for breakfast but there is also the option of eating on site and having the advice and support of an on site manager. This kind of arrangement may be found at Castara Retreats, Blue Waters Inn and Stonehaven.
