Kariwak Village Haven and Hotel, Tobago??

Our travel club is offering a trip to the Kariwak Village Holistic Hotel in Tobago. Included in the package: yoga and Tai-chi daily. Just wondering if anyone has been there, I'm just beginning to research. Thanks!

Hi, Lynn,
I haven't stayed at the Kariwak, but my husband and I have had dinner there many times during our Tobago visits. If you don't mind not being on the beach -- you are closeby, though -- the Kariwak is a great bargain for what you get. The staff is very friendly, and the food is wonderful. The grounds are lushly landscaped. The rooms can be on the dark side, but ask for one of the newer ones by the pool. It is not a "deluxe" resort, but it's very appealing. The pool area is nice, also.
Tobago is a great island, as yet un-overdeveloped. It's small and quiet, so don't expect casinos and lots of shopping, etc.

Thanks for the great info. Is this a place where children would be a disturbance? The ages are 11 and 9. They will be happy with just a pool, but if they are the only kids sometimes it is not worth it. How is the location of the Kariwak? Thanks a lot! Lyn522

Lyn,
I think I remember seeing a few children that age there at dinner but not a lot. After all, it's a fairly small hotel. If the children are well-behaved and not too loud, I don't imagine they'd disturb anybody. The Kariwak seems to be the kind of place where the guests get to know each other and sit outside by the pool and chat in the evening. The guests' age range is quite wide, with some in their 20s and some in their 60s. Quite a few are Europeans, as is true with all of Tobago. Rambunctious children might not fit in. But there is room to run around on the grounds, so maybe they'd get tired out?
When I last looked at the rooms a year or two ago, there were no TVs. Can your children survive without TV? I know some can't.
