We stayed in Treetops for a week in Feb 2016, which was not long enough!
The accommodation was spacious and equipped for our every need - the kitchen has everything you need to cater for yourselves, the bedrooms are both en suite and both have...More
This is a great location overlooking the beach and small village of Castara. Sadly the beach bar (not part of the hotel) kept the music going to 1am on Saturday and 4am on Sunday, It is a pity they do not introduce a curfew like...More
The hardest part of your stay will be the coming back home. You won't be quite able to turn the switch and go on with your life. Mind you, it will be harder than after other holidays. You will sit there contemplating, asking yourself why...More
The views are amazing. Stayed at Birdsong with friends who enjoyed walking down to the beach, buying a 10lb king fish and returning to the apartment to have freshly caught fish for dinner. Imangine falling asleep to the sound of the waves, or waking next...More
Our stay in Castara Retreats was amazing, most of all the people working at the place and in the village are lovely and adorable. They helped us organising some very nice day trips from Castara (e.g. Island Tour etc.) and transfers to/from the airport. Our...More
I'm sure they do - but you may have to pay for the apartment/room full price? This is a super friendly retreat, as is the village, so if you want people to chat to, I don't think Castara or Castara Retreats will disappoint... More

Late answer but Thomas Cook have started direct flights from Manchester to Tobago now- brilliant service better than BA we thought, we used it this month-. They return via Barbados so on the homebound flight because the runway isn't adequate for a transatlantic loaded take off so you fly from Tobago to Barbados, disembark with all your hand luggage as a transit passenger at Barbados airport whilst the aircraft is cleaned, then it's directly back to Manchester.
The flight outbound was about 9 hours. Inbound it's 30 mins to Barbados, wait at airport about 75 mins and flight home about 8 hours (ours was 7 hours because we had a really strong tail wind).
This service is SO much better than a trek to London with another stay in an hotel and Gatwick suffers from more delays and bad weather probs than Manchester.
NOTE: Tobago airport terminal is very basic. It didn't take long at all to get through security but once through there were NO refreshments available except a vending machine.(The kiosk was eventually opened after we'd been there an hour- this was at 3pm) but it was basic and very expensive. Next time I would check in but have a coffee, etc on the ground side and not go through security till much later.
Also I would recommend not getting any duty free Tobago airport if you're flying via Barbados have to go through security again as a transit passenger in Barbados and the 100ml liquid rule applies so they might take your drinks off you. Shop in Barbados duty free whilst you're in transit it's much better and cheaper.
