It felt like being in the old fashioned home of your West Indian granny, the only thing missing was the white net curtains and plastic table covers.
The Coco Reef Hotel and Spa in Scarborough, Tobago, felt cosy and welcoming, not pretentious or flashy.
Floral patterns, wicker furniture, and bright colours were the order of the day – none of that ‘all white bedding and minimalist decor’.
The room was very spacious, it had an old fashioned TV with a bump at the back and a balcony that took you out into the tropical hotel gardens, with an air filled with bird calls.
The beach is small and private with calm water and deep white sand.
Diana Ross is known to have enjoyed a stay at the Coco Reef, many moons ago!
Did I mention that I’m not a light traveller?
Well the Coco Reef didn’t have a lift, and a member of hotel staff carried my suitcase up the staircase to my room and the handle broke off the suitcase in the process – it was a bit on the heavy side!!
