Location is great but don’t recommend the ocean swim here. Pool was good and a nice swim up bar. Food was great but room fixtures are in need of replacing and upgrades. Wait staff was awesome, breakfast buffet was a really good selection.

This was not my first trip to this hotel and it never disappoints me. The service in every area was exceptional and I must recognize Mr Hollis at the front desk for his great hospitality and professionalism. He is a great asset to this organization.

Magdalena Grand helped us salvage our trip after we were cheated by another hotel on the island. Yes, the hotel is older and a bit run down in some parts but it's one of the best on the island. The room was clean and comfortable. The only downside was that the shower water wasn't very warm. Wifi is definitely spotty. The food was good although pricy at times; Watch out for the cost of the Sunday lunch buffet at Pembois! The fine dining was delicious and was def resort level quality, and Robinson Carusoe's was a hit with us. Their fish and chips was *chef's kiss*. The pool is beautiful, except that is closes early at 6 pm. On a nice day the grounds are nice for a walk and there are bikes and scooters available for guests. There us a beach but the Atlantic side of the island can be choppy. Pigeon Point and Store Bay with their clear water on the Caribbean side isn't very far away by car. Don't miss out on the art gallery off the lobby. It has works by some AMAZING local artists. Overall, the customer service was excellent. The front desk and concierge staff were super helpful in organizing taxis and tours. Our flight was at 6:30 am and they organized a taxi to the airport and even put together a breakfast box for us. It must be said that all of these 4 stars go directly to MEKESHIA at the front desk and TED who took us on our island tour. They definitely were key to making our trip memorable and are exemplars of the warmth and welcoming culture of the islands.

A disappointingly scruffy beach on the atlantic side and a tired hotel needing quite a lot of work doing to it , especially to cope with the heavy rain in the wet season - but nevertheless the swimming pools were excellent and the other facilities were good (unless I am very picky and say that the pool table and table football need replacing) - but these issues paled into insignificance when looked after by such an excellent team led by Troy Murray who has commendable aspirations to achieve even higher standards. At breakfast (and occasional lunch) the team were led by Pamela who always engaged with us and made us feel so valued, encouraging us to go out and try local street food like Doubles and Rotis - which we did and enjoyed Reception had Ria and Matthew neither of whom could do enough to help us under the leadership of the lovely Lisa. Robinson Crusoe had Tonya who was going to teach us how to twerk at "Sunday School" and Celine who always anticipated what drinks we wanted and the bar was supervised by the lovely Carla, who always made us feel so very welcome. Marvellous Marvin was always happy to help organise whatever excursions we wanted, and last but by no means least in the pool bar we were entertained and looked after by Nigel "odd socks" and Adana, A lovely hotel - because of the people and the attention they give you - highly recommended

People are the essence of any hotels and this hotel has selected some of Tobago’s best. In particular Lei May in the bar, Pamela in Pembois, Nigel at the pool bar. The hotel is pretty impressive on arrival and checking in is pretty seamless. The rooms mostly have a great view over the sea and are well equipped. There is a need for upgrading, fittings were good, Grohe taps and shower, is there really a need for a bath nowadays. Swimming pool was great, very clean and only 1m deep. Food was copious and of excellent quality, one or 2 hiccups due to the weather. The grounds had been subject to bad weather and the golf course closed. A block had also been flooded and was closed for repair. As the climate changes this could become a regular occurrence and investment will be needed in flood defences. The beaches needed cleaning up, as they were not inviting due to debris and old sunloungers. The management are very keen on customer feedback and seemed to respond quickly to issues. As a former Continuous Improvement Manager this was good to see, but the hotel needs a more proactive system and I would suggest a 5 S programme. Overall, would we go back, yes most definitely

Wonderful location. The hotel could do with some serious renovations. However, the customer service shines. Any and all issues my sister and I had were resolved expediently by staff. Each and every staff member was professional and courteous.

Pleasantly surprised with the improvements The last time we stayed at this hotel (before it became the Magdalena Grand) both the hotel and the people seemed warn out. My husband wanted to play golf on this trip so we book it again for the convenience with low expectations. This time from the first impressions at check in with Hollis we were attended to and made to feel special. The cold welcome drink was a nice touch. Wendell escorted us to our room with our luggage and did a nice job of showing us everything we needed for a comfortable stay Carla (hope I spelled that right) at the Cruso Bar. Sweet and funny with a beautiful smile and great sense of humor. Thank you for being you. You are such fun. Our stay this time was memorable in the best possible way. Our appreciation to everyone on the team at Magdalena Grand for going above and beyond in such a genuine delivery of great hospitality. The golf course was being worked on after the rains but we were allowed to play and had a great day of it. We are grateful to Fairway for accommodating us. Magdalena Grand has obviously done some work restoring the hotel. We had a comfortable room with King Bed Ocean view as booked. Don’t miss the great breakfast. We were pleased to see how well the buffet was managed. Gloves provided. Everything fresh and delicious with extra appreciation for inclusion of local cuisine. Glad we visited again.

A very imposibg set in beautiful grounds that reminded me of Sandals set on a golf course with well kept private villas along both sides of the road. Beautiful drive up to the front of the hotel with its coconut tree lining both side of the road. Inside very light but needs refreshing. Our room was large and adequate over looking the Atlantic ocean. There are 2 floors here, no lifts here, we were on the top floor with beautiful views and u could here the sea lashing over the rocks. There is no beach to speak of, but they had a great swimming pool with lots of sunbeds and umbrellas. Here again,some renovation is required on the back of the hotel where the weather has taken its toll. We arrived just after carnival so 3 of its 5 restaurants were closed due to occupancy levels,but we used the pub on site for tasty meals which the sizes were huge. The breakfast was excellent, a good selection lots of choices, freshly cooked. Met the chef Marlon who pointed out where things were and a lovely lady called Pamela who took care of us, all the staff were professional. Thank u. Just one thing that needs rectifying is the outside loo near the breakfast room.
