Plantation Beach Villas
Reviewed 16 May 2009

The key to Plantation Beach Villas is that it is owner operated and the owner is assisted by someone who acts as if she has a family stake in the property. Pride in the execution of their jobs extends to the entire staff, a team of extremely welcoming and friendly professionals.

Safely in the care of such staff, guests are free to enjoy the roomy, sensibly laid out, beautifully furnished villas. The kitchens are extremely well supplied with every kitchen utensil and appliance a person could want. Each bedroom has a view and the contentment of being on the wrap around vernada cannot be overstated. The villas are set on the side of a little hill that abounds with local plants and trees that are maintained by a hard working team of groundsmen.

The pool bar serves good lunches and snacks and there is a restaurant just a 5 minute walk down the road for a meal out. Our housekeeper cooked us a first class, local dinner and we only wish we'd had the time to sample more of her cooking.

From our veranda, overlooking the Caribbean Sea, while sipping our mango daiquiris, we listened to the birds and watched them flit through the tropical foliage. For a bit of exercise we rolled down to the sandy beach and frolicked in the gentle swells. We recovered from this exertion by laying on loungers at the water's edge with rum punches.

Our greatest problems were having to run to the freezer for ice for the drinks and waking up to the raucous calls of Tobago's national bird, the cocorico (they taste like chicken).

Ours was a 3 generation, family vacation. We were looking for rest and regeneration, so to speak, and Plantation Beach Villas provided just that.

Just imagine a paradise villa on lush landscaped tropical grounds with the acces to a very scenic and beautiful beach...we even saw a leather back turtle during our stay. Two couples, two kids and a baby...and it was perfect for everyone. Everyone had there own little space and yet comfortable to mingle. My baby in particular loved it the minute he walked in (22 months). Rear tropical birds on the veranda every morning singing there lovely songs was very pleasant. The service here is what made the difference OUTSTANDING SERVICE even one month before during my many phone calls and emails...always responded in a very professional and welcoming manner...Concierge service..similar to what you would get in the best hotels in the US (been there) but with a tropical twist...Kudos to the staff who always acknowledged us and had pleasant things to say. Of course Sean and Fiona like we knew them all our lives. This is the place to BE....The ammenities in the villa are ideal for a family. Even safety stuff and anti-mosquito consumables, paper towels and other things you would not normally get at a hotel. The bar-b-que grill was perfect for a family grill on an eveining using fresh fish from Mt. Irvine. Betty-Ann was great in providing house hold services and extremely willing to ensure cofort for the family.

The villas and the staff, Stacy, Sean, Fiona and Ivan are the best. This is our third visit and it definitely won't be our last. The villas are spotless and well maintained, the grounds are so lush and well-manicured. My favorite place is the verandah that stretches out to the front of the villas with the breathtaking sea views.

Excellent for families, not too crowded and very safe. Great experience as always!!!!

When I think paradise, I think Trinidad and Tobago. And if it's Tobago, it's Plantation Beach Villas. What a perfect spot, Beautiful Villas, Bar, Pool, and Beach, really all you need for a perfect relaxing vacation. Some of the most wonderful spots for photo ops.
And let me tell you my husband has found most of them in our 4 trips there, 3 were the last 3 years. The Villa attendants, well what can I say, they can do it all. They keep the Villas so clean with lovely floral arrangements on tables and in other vases. They cook anything you ask for, and they can really cook!!! When you get back from a day at the beach or touring the Island, or shopping, your meal is ready to be served and the table is set, lovely I might add, and it makes you feel so special. They are all so sweet, I've gotten to know most of them. Everyone treats you special and makes you want to come back again, and isn't that what vacation is all about. One of my husband's favorite things is to sit on the Villa's veranda and listen to the surf break on the beach, doing nothing, just taking it all in. It's really hard to leave and go home to Oklahoma and the snow that we had this year when we got home after swimming and relaxing and feeling that wonderful sunshine.

We highly recommend this spot for anyone, and we'll be back next year, probably in March, the Lord willing.

Check out the photos we submitted.

Friendly faces,friendly places.That's what we look for and found on our holiday at Plantation Beach Villas.We were welcomed and felt as part of a special family by Sean,Fiona,our own attendant Stacy and the rest of the staff.Most important at all times we felt SAFE in the Villas,on the beach and at the pool.It was a piece of paradise!!!My family from UK said they are definitely returning and for a longer period. For bird lovers this is the place to be with unusual birds coming up on the verandah to feed on the sugar and fruits we put out.By far the best place to stay and the most beautiful Villas in Tobago.

We thoroughly enjoyed Villa #3 (of 6). It contained 3 large bedrooms, a living room and kitchen. The best feature was the large veranda overlooking the pool and Caribbean. Daily service (Betty) from 9 to 2 was pleasant and efficient. She will cook breakfast and dinner, do laundry, etc., sometimes for an extra charge. Sean (manager) and Fiona (administrator) were very helpful. We especially appreciated the first day's dinner and breakfast which they provided. Highly recommended!
