Gorgeous beachfront location
Standard rooms are a bit dated
Sitting a couple miles southeast of Scarborough along the shores of Trinidad and Tobago's Rockly Bay, this boutique hotel offers guests a taste of true seclusion. Boasting just 60 rooms and suites separated from the property's facilities by verdant tropical gardens, Bacolet Beach Club earns high praise from recent guests for its relaxed atmosphere. Every room looks out over the Caribbean Sea and comes equipped with a canopied four-poster bed, marble floors, a balcony or patio and modern amenities like free Wi-Fi access and a flat-screen TV. However, some recent guests said that the hotel's standard accommodations are outdated. Others raved about Bacolet's wooden-decked pool area – complete with poolside drink service from The RoK beach bar – and prime shoreline access. Though the hotel is a bit of a trek to nearby off-site restaurants, the in-house Café Havana satisfies appetites with its unique Cuban, Asian and Creole specialties.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure


The new hotel, owned by former model Gloria Jones-Knapp, is a little bit of heaven on earth. The ... rooms at this boutique hotel have marble floors, mosquito-netted four-poster beds, and cobalt blue walk-in showers in the bathrooms.



This dark-sand beach was the setting for the films Swiss Family Robinson and Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison.
