I just want to tell you all about my experience with Arnos Vale. We were on a holiday cruise on the Constellation. We had a nice Roll Call going so I decided to contact Arnos Vale at the suggestion of a Trini friend who recommended it back in '06. She did her swimsuit photography there right before she won Miss Universe in 1998.
Well, at first, we got a group of about 16 people, which somehow turned into 34 people right before we sailed. I e-mailed the very efficient women, including Sintra Bronte, the owner, and they said No Problem! We had RT bus transportation, lounge chairs, towels, fruit punch, juices, water, soda, beer,
the most gorgeous beach you could imagine with fantastic snorkeling around the edges (I'll try to put a picture below, I'm not very good at it), use of the really big clean pool, freedom to walk through the bird and butterfly sanctuary, and THE MOST delicious island buffet lunch, including salads, chicken, fish, rice, beans and their own homemade ice cream. She even opened up 2 guest rooms for us to change in - one for the men and one for the ladies! They picked us up at 8:30 and we left there about 4:00 pm, back to the ship at 4:30. All in all, an incredible day at about $70 a person. Try to find an ALL DAY ship tour for that price!
The port area is sketchy, some crazy Rastaman climbed on one of our bus in the morning and started harassing and screaming at people, but a 30 something brother/sister team sent him flying back to whereever he came from ... the woman driver said he wasn't from T&T.
