Mt. Irvine Bay Resort

Shirvan Rd., Mt. Irvine Bay, Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago

Although the hotel lacks some of the fancier amenities and has seen better days, there's still something magical about its 1970s shabby gentility. The relatively low room rate reflects the fact the property has been in need of maintenance for several years. Rooms are spacious and perfectly adequate, though not as luxe as those in other similarly priced hotels on the island. The lack of guests makes it feel like the tropical version of The Shining. A lovely beach, where drinks are served and towels dispensed, sits right across the road. The hotel's restaurants are best avoided, though, since the service is generally slow and the food uninspired. A major renovation and rebranding is planned for 2016 to bring it back up to four-star status.
