A tropical rain forest creeps up behind this eco-friendly hotel, which sits on sheltered, turquoise Batteaux Bay; it's just east of Speyside and a 90-minute drive from Scarborough. The sprawling hotel makes every effort to make guests feel at home. One- and two-bedroom apartments are directly on the white-sand beach. The resort caters primarily to divers and bird-watchers, but it's also a fine base for exploring Tobago's north coast. The restaurant serves the freshest
of fish, and barbecue dinners are cooked at the pool bar.

No one thing stands out about this hotel other than the great locaton that iit is at. Rooms could be cleaner, the air could work a lot better and you must time your shower if you want hot water and water pressure. But the location is great.

If you want to get away from it all, this hotel will do the job. It is located on a secluded beach on the Atlantic side of the island. Although Speyside is billed as the "scuba capital of the Caribbean" we found the waters murky since we went during the "Christmas Winds" (December through February). Rooms were comfortable and within a few yards of the beach. Our balcony even came with its own bat colony (a positive aspect as it kept the bug population
down). Food was also pretty good. Excellent if you compare it to Asa Wright's where we spent the week previous to our stay at Blue Waters Inn. Note however that you should heed the hotel's safety warnings. Several times we were warned of the locals predisposition to thievery and we were glad we took the necessary precautions.

Blue Waters Inn is a fabulous location if you really want to be away from it all. No hustle, no bustle, just peace and quiet. The room was comfortable, though not superior. The food was good, though not great. The location and surroundings were beyond words! If holiday for you means away, you have arrived, but take plenty of insect repellent!!
