Glorious natural setting; unsurpassed sense of privacy; the new spa.
The lack of Wi-Fi in the cottages. The new beach bar and beachside restaurant are open to the public, which may not prove to be a good idea.
Good to Know
The Tobago Cays, with some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean, are within easy reach.
