As Trinidad and Tobago starts taking off in the tourism industry (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323419104578374840987543034.html?mod=wsj_share_tweet), Candles in the Wind will be the place to go for budget-minded travelers. Amenities were clean, the host was kind and helpful in planning our itinerary to explore the island, and living quarters were comfortable. Candles is located on a quiet residential street and is a nice place...

I actually stayed here a couple of years ago. This place is the best you are going to find in Tobago in terms of value for money. The room and en suite bathroom were very spacious, clean and equipped. On both floors there are kitchens so that you can cook for yourself, although if you aren't into cooking there are...

As a single female traveller, I am quite fussy in my choices of where to stay, so the following review is true to my word. Candles for me was superb, Andrew the owner/manager could not do enough for me and the other residents at the time of my stay. The rooms were basic but spotlessly clean & comfortable. The en-suite...

I would definitely recommend Candles to anyone who's visiting Tobago. Great location (within walking distance to Pigeon Point and Store Bay) safe and clean accommodation. Andrew the owner was extremely helpful and very friendly. Perfect home away from home.

I would not recommend Candles in the Wind. There was constant noise from the restaurants nearby and the residential building next door. Music started at 8pm and lasted all night long only to begin again early in the morning. The stomping footsteps of the backpackers renting the beds above in addition to the music kept my nights sleepless. The second...

I stayed at Candles during end of November 2012. I had a very pleasant stay and my first pick after a time off in Trinidad was exactly this again.

We recently stayed at candles. The owner, Andrew, is a lovely man who cares about his customers. He was more accommodating and friendly than you could expect from a host. It felt more like staying at the house of a favourite uncle. The rooms are clean and satisfactory. The common areas are spacious and well equipped. The guesthouse is situated...
