An amazing holiday in a dream location. We loved Tobago and could not have asked for more

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four all agree that Tobago is one of the most beautiful places we have been to and that the accommodation surpassed all expectations Our host Liz was fantastic and made sure our trip was wonderful. Before we arrived she helped put us in touch with local operators which allowed us to scuba dive and tour with the islands best. She filled our fridge with food for us before we arrived and even came out at 2am to let us in when our plane was delayed. It is not often one finds service like this , and always with a smile. She was a pleasure to deal with.

This accommodation was spectacular , and the location ideal. Right on a beautiful beach which was never crowded and it was so amazing to wake up hearing the waves right outside the bedroom window.

Definitely a vacation and a location to recommend!

We had many lovely meals on the large balcony and enjoyed the lovely sunsets

Tobago was so beautiful and we had a lovely relaxing vacation. Our whole family voted it best yet and certainly all look forward to returning there soon

Owner's Response: Dear Bryan and Sharon Thank you so much for your wonderful review, it was my absolute pleasure to help where I could. Tobago is a very special island and Blue Marlin is a special apartment (however I may be a little bit biased there!!!). I am so glad your family all enjoyed themselves and I look forward to seeing you all again in the future. Take care Liz

Definitely a 5 star property with an outstanding position on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks in March 2017, myself, husband and 23 year old daughter. the apartment has a fabulous position on the beach. This apartment has everything you may need for an enjoyable stay, fully equipped kitchen, powerful showers in the bathrooms and a very comfortable lounge area and a large dining room table and chairs. The apartment is very spacious but the best part is the large balcony that overlooks the beach and gardens. This again has plenty of chairs to sit and watch the sea and beautiful birds in the garden, sunsets and sunrises, this truly is a very special place

Also the gardens are very well kept and there is a small pool to relax in when the weather gets too hot and just chill, there are plenty of sunbeds that you are allowed to take onto the beach and use. There is also a small outdoor table and 4 chairs together with a parasol for you to use

Hit the Spot!

  • 4 of 5

Clean, breath-taking, comfortable, family friendly as advertised & relaxing! Accommodations were "SPECTACULAR" Despite the fact last minute "we added two small children" for an additional fee and a small issue "which was being taken care of" with one of the smaller Air-conditioners at the location. WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME AND WOULD DEFINITELY REVISIT. Thank you Liz & Lenore for making our stay quite memorable!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering staying at Blue Marlin apartment then I would urge you to book it! We've just stayed there for 2 weeks with our 2 teenage sons and it was fantastic. The apartment itself is HUGE, with views to die for - a truly stunning position. It's really well kitted out and very comfortable. The beach it is on is the best one we went to - and we travelled around the whole island! Crown Point and Store Bay are beautiful, but very crowded. On Black Rock Beach you will often be the only ones there, and only ever a few locals and children coming down for a swim.

Tobago itself is quite 'rustic', not very developed for tourism - if you want lots of top quality restaurants and things to do then it might not be the island for you. But it is so beautiful - make sure you go up to the North, to Speyside and to the Argylle waterfall and to the rainforest.

The pool area is lovely - my only slight negative comment would be that the pool is a little small for teenage sized children to play in. Christian keeps the garden immaculate and one of our favourite sights was watching the Iguana climb the palm tree outside our balcony every morning.

Liz is brilliant - so friendly and helpful, really nothing is too much trouble. And the lovely maid (whose name I have forgotten in a jet-lag fuzz) keeps the apartment absolutely immaculate.

We will most definitely be going back!

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

I was a little reluctant to book this property as there was only one review posted. I am so glad I took the chance and choose the Blue Marlin!!! We (husband, myself and 3 teenage boys) stayed here for 2 weeks. The apartment is large, spacious and spotless. The deck is fantastic for chillin'. The beach is the best we found on Tobago. We went to Pigeon Point one day, and ended up wondering why we had wasted our time and money to get harassed by hustlers pushing glass bottom boat tours, when we could have just hung out here on Grafton Beach. We even saw hatchling leatherbacks making their way to the water one night! Liz is a fantastic property manager. We missed our flight from Trinidad due to weather delays in Houston, and she was able to pull some strings to get us on the next flight. She met us at the property and went over everything with us, and made sure we were comfortable before she left. Chris is the property manager and he keeps the place spotless and is very friendly. We adopted Lucy for 2 weeks - she laid at the top of the spiral steps with her nose through the gate waiting for a scratch. She would also follow us on our beach strolls. Great property, great property manager. You can't go wrong with Blue Marlin! Can't wait to return!!!!

The perfect place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to the Blue Marlin, a spacious apartment on an idyllic beach with a fantastic view. To be able to walk out of the property straight onto the sand and into the sea for a morning swim and then wander along to a beach bar for a drink or a bite to eat is what dreams are made of. The garden is immaculate and if you are feeling really lazy it is wonderful to lounge around the pool. The apartment itself has everything you need. Liz the manager was wonderful, providing grocery essentials we had requested on our arrival and answering all our questions regarding the island. Everything was perfect for a relaxing holiday on a beautiful tropical island. Plenty of restaurants, places to see and things to do. We certainly want to return.
