Critic Reviews



This impressive seafront resort (formerly the Hilton Tobago) is located in a lovely gated residential area complete with golf course; the beach, however, is minuscule, requiring a complimentary shuttle to the much better Pigeon Point Beach. The two-story buildings seem to rise magically from the landscape at the end of the gorgeous 18-hole course, and the massive atrium lobby, which is filled with local art, has floor-to-ceiling sea views.

Travel + Leisure


Although it's situated in a gated luxury community of golf courses and vacation homes, there’s an untouched beauty to the surrounding nature trails and mangrove forests. That means guests at Magdalena Grand Beach Resort enjoy the thrills of back-to-nature adventure combined with the perks of a large resort development.


An upper-middle-range beachfront property, the Grand Magdalena (like many resorts on Tobago) offers rooms at reasonable rates; the price covers a buffet breakfast, bicycle rentals, shuttles to a nearby beach, and numerous other freebies. Facilities include a fitness center, large pool, and nearby spa, and the hotel has numerous restaurant and bar options (although the restaurants can be overpriced).
