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

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This villa has it all. Extremely spacious, comfortable and amazing views. You fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves and awake to the same melody. For those early risers, you can relax in the porch and watch the sun as it creeps up over the horizon. The pool is just enough to relax and let the hours slip by. Conveniently located by the beach - any closer and the waves would be in the rooms!

The stairs to get down to the pool are a little tricky though, so if you have kids, what we did was walk around to the entrance of the villa and follow the walkway down to the pool. My only suggestion to the owner would be insect screens on the sliding doors. There is a constant seabreeze that rushes through the villa, and it would be great to have the doors open during the day and evening, but the bugs can be a tad bit overbearing. Definitely not a deal breaker though.

Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great location and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment to be just as nice as it is described but the location is hard to imagine as to just how well it is actually positioned, simply fabulous!! Just 4 steps from the garden gate onto the fantastic sandy beach with the Caribbean waves gently lapping onto the shore.

Of the local restaurants our favourite was Seahorse, we ate their twice and the food was really good.

Liz the property manager is a great font of knowledge and very helpful, she organised many thing for us including car rental.

Tobago is THE most interesting of islands with such diversity and I am glad to have visited and if we ever do return (which is likely) then it would be back here to Black Rock Dreams.

The bird life in the garden are worth the trip alone!

Blue Marlin is a beautiful place to stay on Tobago.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Blue Marlin this summer for two wonderful weeks. The apartment is amazing, spacious and very well equipped, with everything you might need during your stay. It's position right on the beach could not have been more perfect for us, quite often we were the only people using it and we think it was definitely the best beach on the island. The pool was clean and great for cooling off, and although not big, my 12 year old son spent most of the time underwater, swimming between the different pools. We tried all the local restaurants and always had great food and service, although the supermarkets are a bit challenging if you want to self cater.

Our thanks go to Liz who made our stay completely stress free, we would definitely reccomend a holiday at Blue Marlin

Blue Marlin has private access from the gardens onto Grafton Beach which is always quiet and great to walk along and has some good snorkelling spots. Buccaneers Beach Bar and Grill is on the beach and services food and cocktails.

Should you wish to explore the island, Tobago has plenty to offer such as snorkelling, diving, golf, sailing, bird watching and horse riding as well as a lively night life.


A.N.R.Robinson International Airport (TAB) is located on the south-western tip of the island and takes 20 minutes to drive to Blue Marlin. You will need to hire a car or catch a taxi to the apartment. There is a secure underground car park with electric gates.


There are a handful of lovely restaurants within walking distance of Blue Marlin and three supermarkets, all within 10 minutes drive!!!
