We were staying for two weeks at this hotel. In the beginning everything was normal, but after a few days began surprises. I had an accident with a car rented by us. I parked the car in the evening in the courtyard of the hotel in the parking lot and in the morning the car was hit. Only two cars...

Birds chirp and squawk, palm fronds rustle in the breeze, waves crash on the secluded private beach and we’re alone at one of three infinity pools, a hundred steps above the Atlantic at the Bacolet Beach Club on Tobago. We’re staying across the street and farther up the hill at Half Moon Blue, the eclectic and pleasingly weathered nine-room sister...

We loved our stay in half moon blue- it was spectacular. We were on our honeymoon and this place is perfectly chic romantic. The staff were friendly. Breakfast was by far the best we had on our trip! It has a private beach, two infinity pools and convenient 24 hour car hire so you can see more of the island....

This hotel is definitely different! We stayed here for a week at Christmas in the superior penthouse which was an upgrade. The room huge as was the verandah with a view to die for but some of the facilities definitely in need of refurbishment particularly the bathroom. Beautiful private beach. Friendly helpful staff. Breakfast which was included in the price...

We stayed here for four nights. When I mentioned that we would like a higher floor we were upgraded to a junior penthouse at no extra cost. Front desk and reservation staff were friendly and helpful. They helped us with car rental and arranging for taxis. The hotel is on an incline and isn't suitable for people with knee problems...

Stayed at the Half Moon Blue hotel for two nights. The hotel staff were wonderful and helpful. The rooms were very tidy and well maintained. Hotel is based near a beach and facilities are all close by. The airport is 20mins drive from the hotel. Has local shops ten mintues walking distance. Would recommend.

We got a fairly large room but it seemed as if I had stepped 30 years back in time and was back at my grandma's old place. The wardrobe is quite small. Large bathroom but everything was falling apart: tap held with a cord underneath the basin, chipped mirror, broken glasses... The location of the hotel is quite remote, you...

My fiance and I stayed in the "penthouse" at one of the villas here... it was gorgeous! Absolutely no complaints! Amazing view from our room and it was so spacious. It's so clean and modern, with unique decor. With access to the private beach just across the street, and the restaurant for breakfast, I absolutely love this hotel!!

I only chanced on this place by accident. How lucky was I?! Forget the Hiltons, the Hyatts, even the Four Seasons (in Firenze), this little gem is special. It may just be a matter of taste but I adored it's quirky, eclectic feel. I have to admit that there were little bits here and there that could do with a...

Spent 5 nights at Half Moon Blue recently in one of the junior penthouses. On arrival, the room looked delightful, with fresh petals strewn throughout. Accommodation was very comfortable and the view out across the Atlantic stunning. The option to use both the facilities at Half Moon Blue and the Bacolet Beach Club was a bonus and the complimentary breakfast...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Here's a little secret only a few people know about: if you're planning a trip to Tobago, one of the most charming hotels is Half Moon Blue Hotel at the Donkey Cart House. Nestled in gardens of palms, bamboo and bougainvillea, the hotel's suites lay beneath the hill of historical Fort George. Eight extra spacious suites and one spectacular Penthouse loft overlook the horizon, the half moon shaped Bacolet Bay and the overflow swimming pool where midnight swims are a must! The decor sets your mood for serene and lazy days and romantic exotic nights. These colonial styled suites with jalousied windows and doors open onto verandas with rattan chaise-lounges, creating the perfect spot for what ever your heart desires like that best seller you have been dying to read. On a clear day you can see the sister isle of Trinidad. These breathtaking panoramic views with their romantic surf washed coves can be seen from our balconies with the beach only a 2 minute trot away. ... more   less
