You have a shared pool next to each room which was great and I even saw a humming bird whilst in the pool.The pool never seemed too busy, I usually had...

After reading the reviews, I was very skeptical to stay here. It was my birthday and honeymoon so I really wanted the perfect place to relax, have fun and enjoy. I decided to take the chance and see what happens and I am extremely happy that I did. This place is beautiful and the cool island breeze and sea view...

Lovely hotel with great views especially poolside. The buffet breakfast which was served in a garden setting offered a great variety. Had some issues with room service and getting a timely response to issues but generally a good stay.

A great place to stay, wonderful staff and great views! The rooms we stayed in were beautiful and cosy. Having access to a secluded beach and pools were a bonus. I spent a wonderful weekend here and will be back again soon!

We booked a ground floor room, but were upgraded to the top floor, unbelievable view from our large private balcony! Quite a few stairs, but worth it! Charming romantic room with four poster canopy bed (strewn with flowers for arrival), air, and large clean bathroom. Infinity pool outside our door that none else used, as well as the 2 infinity...

Superior Penthouse is whole top floor in a former house. It is unclear what comprises this hotel or what is an association of a number of adjacent businesses which share facilities. The SP is visually stunning - completely under-described on their web site. A slope and lots of steps to get there, but WOW when you do. with wonderful views...

We LOVED staying here, and opted to move up here after a short stay in the sister property (Bacolet Bay Beach Club) across the street (and closer to the shared pool and beach access). If you like quiet seclusion (or birdwatching from your deck) and older but beautiful rooms with lots of dark wood decor...well, this is your place. I'd...

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
