“Wedding and honeymoon perfection”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

(06/2012)My now wife and I wanted the perfect beach wedding and wanted to do it in a unique place with the comforts of home . We arrived at the airport and were greeted by a driver who drove us to the Villa at Stone Haven. We were then greeted by the manager and Drinks!! (Very much needed after a long flight from the states). We were shown the hotel bar and lounge area and then escorted by the manager to the house. I'm honestly a very loud and outgoing person with something to say about everything, BUT when he opened the front door for us and then the back terrace doors I was speechless! The office and staff had even packed our refrigerator with food and drink as well as meat and fruit for breakfast. I can’t tell you how much that helped as I hadn't thought about not having food. My now wife and I decided not to get the wedding package offered at the villa because we wanted to me married on the beach but we did get the honeymoon package (more on that later). Our Villa was “Stonehave Villa 7”, and I made a video on YouTube if you want to see it, just search the quoted name above. The villa was amazing and very spacious with lots of amenities and the views…. Ahhh I miss the views!!! We meet our house keeper “Vernet” who was charming and so very friendly. We asked her tons of questions about the area and how to drive around and things we should see. She was very helpful and even though I was uncomfortable with the idea of a “housekeeper” because I’ve never had anyone pickup or clean up after me she made us very comfortable. She even introduced me to a red fruit that was growing in a tree near the pool (I wish I could tell you what it was called but it was great and easy to pick). The staff was friendly and the location was patrolled by a night watchman who walked the grounds every night. I felt very safe and secure at the villa and never once had an issue or any question that the house was secure. We did use the built in safe for extra money and our papers but besides a locked door we always felt comfortable and safe. We took advantage of the restaurant on site and had the meals sent to our villa and I’m glad we did. The food was great and well worth the convenience after a long day of beach and tours we didn't want to cook. When our 10 day trip was over we didn’t want to go and it was truly sad to say good bye to Vernet and all the friendly staff. We did get one more treat when we were leaving and found out we had forgotten about the Honeymoon package and hadn’t done any of the activities. The Office manager happily refunded us the money for the activities we didn’t do. My wife and I had been so embraced and were having such a wonderful time on the island that we both had forgotten about the hotel activities we had purchased. So the villa was amazing, the people were amazing and we got money back when we left!! I will be going back as soon as I possibly can and I hope this helps you make a decision to visit this wonderful island.

Room Tip: Villa #7 Views are amazing and even though the villas are close you feel secluded.

We arrived a little later than expected owing to a problem at Gatwick. We were taken straight to our villa and told we could check-in the next day. The villa was booked on a self-catering basis although the housekeeper would cook for us if required. We hoped to stop at the supermarket on the way from the airport but because we were late and tired we decided to wait until the following morning. Reception arranged for a taxi to take us to a supermarket which would stock brands/items that we would be familiar with and they were not wrong and prices were competitive. The taxi driver waited for us, took us back to the villa to unpack and then dropped us at a local bar where we had a nice brunch on the sea front. The taxi driver even came back to collect us a couple of hours later. The villa itself was perfect, air-conditioning in the bedrooms, very comfortable beds and fans to keep you cool elsewhere.There was a lovely terraced area where we spent most of our time, with swimming pool all with beautiful sea-views. The housekeeper came every day and was very thorough. One evening we used the barbecue and came home the next day to find it had been cleaned. The villa itself was very well stocked especially the kitchen equipment. If anything didn't work properly if was fixed immediately. We only ate once in the restaurant and although service a bit slow the food was good and not over priced. Happy hour at 5.30 was a great way to start off the evening, with cocktails on the bar terrace watching the sunset.
Niggles? just a couple we were led to believe that there would be a basket of fruit plus flowers in the villa upon arrival - there wasn't and we booked a four bedroom villa as we were told that there were some on site, having booked 10 months in advance we thought this would not be a problem. However, when the 4th bedroom door was opened it turned out to be a store room and the manager said there were no 4 bedroom villas at all . This meant our 12 year old daughter had to share a room with her aunt - not ideal. Also hair-dryers not ideal for long hair. Bring your own toiletries, robes and slippers as surprisingly these are not supplied.

Many thanks for taking the time write you review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay so much and we do hope to welcome you back some day. We do have a limited number of villas that have a fourth bedroom, the bedroom is a single room with en-suite and we apologise if there was some misunderstanding concerning this.

Well what can I say that I did not say last year?
We very rarely go to the same holiday destination two years running, but we made an exception in the case of Tobago.
This year we were, after a week at the Grand Magdelena, see separate review, in a different villa , looked after by the incomparable Merle, although Lystra our friend from last year made a point of coming to visit us and say hello.
Every evening Marcel, the Head of Security makes a point of visiting each villa to check that everything is OK and having a quick chat with guests.
The ladies in the Pavilion Restaurent, and I hope they will forgive me for not taking down their names, but they will have to blame that on the excellent cocktails they produce, were friendly, helpful and remembered which drink you preferred without being prompted.
This time round it really did feel like coming home………..
Last year we did not hire a car but relied on taxis and did a round the island trip with Hans Philips, again someone we can recommend but this year we took the plunge and hired a jeep.
Stonehaven arranged this for us and the car was delivered and picked up from the villa so there was no effort on our part, the rates were favourable, the jeep ok and petrol very cheap.
I noticed in another review the comment that it only took an hour to get round the island, I did not know Lewis Hamilton was on holiday at the same time as us.
The island is very small, but the roads are narrow and twisty once you get away from Crown Point, in compensation the views are incredible and you can drive through the oldest nationalised rain forest in the world, how cool is that? However do be aware that road signs are rare and the road shown on the map does not always go where you think it is going to………but then that is all part of the fun.
When we left, which sadly came all too soon, it was hugs all round from our friends at Stonehaven and a return trip to the airport with Ram our faithful taxi driver.
The only thing left to do is contact our friend Jill at Golden Holidays to see if she can work her magic again next year…….. does that answer your question as to whether we would go back again?

I had my wedding and reception and rehearsal dinner at Stonehaven Villas. Denise Broomes and her team of well coordinated professionals delivered on every instance. They go above and beyond to ensure you're well looked after and with a finished product that always exceed expectations! It all seems as though the entire process was at a snap of a finger and did help me calm whatever nerves I had. The execution of the wedding went smoothly and the food was exceptional! The villas are excellent and do provide a wonderful sense of serenity and surrender. It's design and layout is classy and exudes maximum coolness and relaxation. Truly a very special place!

If you are looking for a luxurious retreat for relaxation where you can do as much or as little as you want....This is the place. The villas are excellent in very well kept gardens. This is a gated community but the security is very friendly and unobtrusive. The reception / bar / restaurant does everything you would need from a hotel (for a holiday at least). The food is good, Paul makes the most amazing cocktails and everyone is very helpful. Two things :- 1). Remember where you are, service will be good and gracious, but don't expect immediate and proactive, chill, you're on holiday: 2). The villas are on a hillside and it is quite a steep hill, not the best for the very old or the very young. For those using the self catering aspect of the villas, there are minimarts within walking distance in both directions, reception will get you a taxi to the larger supermarkets, (there is one they know that stocks more UK brands if you ask). the driver will wait for you and bring you back for between £10-20. Or give your maid or reception 24hrs notice and the money to pay, and they will get the groceries for you. The maid will also prepare and cook breakfast and lunch for you if you wish. There is plenty to do on the Island, especially if you are into flora and fauna..(or birdies and lizards in trees as the wife puts it...).or Rum and Punch!! Enjoy!!

We are so pleased that you enjoyed Stonehaven and our island whilst you were here. It is true that in Tobago the pace of life is a little slower and we are glad you really did get the chance to unwind and enjoy our island at a leisurely pace and with a refreshing rum punch to hand as well!

It was a pleasure staying at Stonehaven Villas as a guest and having them host our wedding reception at their clubhouse. To get everything setup I worked with Denise Brooms who was responsive, flexible to our needs and extremely helpful in coordinating and overseeing all activities. Even though she was not our wedding coordinator she provides great advice and suggestions about food, drinks, service vendors and entertainment. The pricing was straightforward, food was of the best quality and the staff was friendly and made my guests feel welcome. With their help we had the perfect wedding reception.

The Villas too were beautiful and extremely comfortable. The living room opened out to the veranda and infinity pool area, which gave it a very open flowing feel. The rooms were very clean and the architectural woodwork was beautiful. The ground’s lawn and bushes are very well manicured with the perfect amount of tropical flowers. Also, hearing the songbirds in the each morning was a perfect way to start the day.

Overall my stay and working with Stonehaven for my wedding reception was exceptional. I strongly recommended doing business with them.
