BEST HOTEL IN TOBAGO - I STAY HERE 4 TIMES A YEAR !!

Where do I start? When my husband I first visited this resort over 2 years ago attended the breakfast buffet where we first a young lady named Carla . She stood out from the rest of the staff as she was well-put together, kind and pleasant and very attentive to our needs. I remember her always passing our table 7 -8 x asking if needed anything and if everything was ok. I AM VERY BIG ON CUSTOMER SERVICE. Since then, we have visited Magdalena Grand Hotel almost every 2 -3 months. We stay no where else on the island. This now our 10th stay at this hotel !! Fast forward 6 months.....we had the pleasure of meeting the additional staff in the Breakfast buffet. I MUST mention their names as they too are nothing less than fantastic. VICTORIA....Rochelle ( Nick name DOUGLA ) ...and of course IZACHIA. How do these 3 outstanding young ladies always remember our names? LOL!! My husband and I travel all the time. We have visited many restaurants and hotels in the past. However, let me tell you why I am so impressed with these 3 ladies. THEY WORK AS A TEAM NOT AS INDIVIDUALS. Where Rochelle would greet us pleasantly at the front as we arrive for breakfast, Izachia would clean the table and pick up dishes, while Victoria would ask us if we needed more fresh grapefruit juice and get it for us. There also some staff that did a fantastic job as well but I cannot remember their names...and for that I do apologize. "THAT IS WHY THIS MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME." With all the staff combined, this makes us feel like family ...not a guest. Now...here's the icing on the cake. One morning, I stated that there was nothing on the breakfast buffet that I felt like eating. The girls suggested that they would speak the breakfast chef to see if she could prepare a special dish for me. Her name was AVRIL. Not only did AVRIL personally come out from the back of the kitchen to personally talk to me at the table, she had asked me what I felt like eating. She gave me some suggestions....and then made me EXACTLY what I asked....with restaurant quality. I was stunned !! We immediately went upstairs to our room and booked our next vacation at the Magdalena Hotel with the Reservations department ....no questions asked. Thank you EVERYONE for making our stay so enjoyable and making us feel like family. Yours Truly, Ann-Marie

Needs some change

A little disappointing considering the potential this place has. Room was ok. Elevator down. Water damage.Restaurant average. Service was average and not the best swimming beach either. Probably not my go to on my next Tobago visit.
