My family and I were recent guests at a hotel
resort on the western end of Tobago- Crown
Point. The resort was highly recommended
by friends who had stayed there before. They praised
the hotel not just for the exceptional service but also
for the other amenities.
I can assure you that we booked our vacation
mainly for relaxation and getting some rest away
from our busy schedule. I must say that Tobago
is exceptional and the service is excellent and the
food is tasty. I can see why certain resorts are
awarded for excellence repeatedly.
My biggest disappointment is that my family
and I could not seem to be able to sleep at nights
because of the volume of the noise emanating from
bars around. For several nights I lay on my bed
watching the clock tick away until 3:00 am in the
hope that it will stop. After talking to other guests
on the beach they are having the same noise prob-
lem and they too are unable to sleep and they too
are upset. Some days the roof of my bedroom
shook as though angry animals were trying to get
in.My family was cranky for the entire stay as we
were unable to sleep. My family's getaway was
ruined and I demand a 50 percent refund from the
hotel. I do not want a credit on my account nor
do I want a discount for a future stay as my inabil-
ity to do anything about this is simply ridiculous.
I love Tobago and I love the resort where I stayed
however I will not be returning to stay there or
probably to Tobago. Something needs to be done
as soon as possible as am sure this is not the first
complaint the hotel has received.
I wish the Tobago authorities take this matter
seriously and urgently as this will hamper any
future tourist business for Tobago in that area. I
have made a request to the hotel for the 50%
refund I mentioned and will write to let you know
when I get it.
We loved Tobago, and loved
the guesthouse we were
staying in but I don't think
we will ever visit Tobago again. This is
a shame because the island is so beau-
tiful, but it is one of the noisiest coun-
tries we have ever visited . Bars are
allowed to play music at completely
unbearable volumes it almost hurts your
ears and you can feel the base inside you.
We did not get any sleep for a whole
weekend because the noise continues
until 4 am.
The police offer no assistance to
this problem. The hotel Manager called
them several times every night. We
visited during elections. The whole
country must be deaf, because the
volume at which the campaign trucks
were operating was painful, even cov-
ering our ears offered no relief and if
this is example the government is
setting, it's no wonder that every bar
and club think this is their free pass
to do the same.
These people have no idea of the
damage this can cause not only to
their hearing, but also to the public's
sanity. This will definitely will not
help tourism. We will not be return-
'Dirty' looks in noisy
Ivisited the western end of Toba-
go so that I could enjoy some
peace and walk along the road-
way but I was terribly disappointed.
Men stood at the side of the road
making such nasty remarks about my
clothing that I felt abused.
After all, I came to Tobago to wear
light clothing and enjoy my days in
the sun but was shocked that short
pants and tank tops could draw such
horrible remarks as many asked if I
was looking for a 'time'
. I just felt
I spoke with some other guests at
the guesthouse where I stayed and
they too spoke of being asked if they
wanted to have a 'time'
Men were standing on the roadway
at nights and drinking preventing me
from even being able to walk proper-
ly on the footpath.
Next time I come to visit I will cer-
tainly not stay in that area and will
head to the countryside and hope I
am not faced with a similar situation.
Fed up tourist,
Great job female
surgical ward staff
Iwish to express heartfelt thanks
to the staff of the female medical
ward at the Scarborough General
Hospital who worked between October
-- December, last year.
I had cause to be admitted to the
hospital on two occasions and spent
close to one month on the ward and
I was able to prove that the staff is
kind and caring.
I wish to single out Dr King for
his level of professionalism and the
manner in which he conducted his
duties. He gave me hope and explained
my situation with a level of clarity
that is only parallel to Dr Noel at the
Health Promotion Clinic.
The nurses too along with the rest
of the staff were kind and considerate
except one whose name I cannot recall.
As a nurse her long nails and dis-
courteous manner when asked a ques-
tion left me drained. However, the
amicable atmosphere created by the
rest of the staff overshadowed her
The persons who served the lunch
were kind and attentive too and quite
accommodating. Surprisingly, many
women sang as they performed their
duties and some offered a word of
prayer or encouragement. I was par-
ticularly pleased that in many cases
when the nurses prayed and held
hands when changing their shifts .
The Bible says we must be grateful
so I am writing this letter of thanks.
