“Lovely Villa on an amazing island, with the "appearance of security," mediocre location, and non-existent housekeeper.”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This villa is lovely, very comfortable, and fairly well appointed. Pool is well designed and fun for groups. However, despite the photos and suggestions in the listing, there is no Hot Tub, and guests of the villa do NOT have free access to any facilities in the adjoining resort. The resort is quite aged, does not have a beach, and is at best a mid-class/rating -- perhaps 3 Star.

That said, the owner and property manager were all responsive, professional, punctual, and fairly easy to deal with. The housekeeper showed-up for only one of the four days we had stayed. The villa is also centrally located to many beautiful beaches -- though a rental car is necessary. Security is apparent, but not effective -- as during the middle of the night, we experienced a break-in with minor, non-violent theft. Tobago is amazing - but the villa and location were just Ok.

Liked best: The Villa is well designed, and very comfortable - one ground floor, with easy access in and out.
Liked least: The lack of Beach access, and non-existent security on the property at night, when it is most needed.

“It was Amazing!!!”

San Souci is a beautiful villa.....it was exactly what we had hoped for and more. The Villa is much more beautiful than the pictures lead on!!.

The personal attention and service which was provided by our host Mike, was more than we could have asked for. He is the friendliest, most professional and genuinely nicest person I’ve come across in the hotel industry thus far. The housekeeper Angela was welcoming, pleasant and very helpful.

The villa really has all the amenities that you can ask for is available to you. The villa was clean and spacious. The rooms are beautifully decorated and well maintained, everyone was comfortable with more than enough privacy. The surrounding area is breathtaking and you wake up to a great view of the golf coarse and and a few delightful visitors (hummingbirds and parakeets).

I had the pleasure of staying in one of the master bedrooms and it was heavenly... the room is large enough and the bathroom was something to smile about.....

The kitchen was fully equipped with all that we needed.....the pool was everyone's favorite attraction. With accommodations this beautiful we found it hard to venture out into the island.

There's so much more that I can say but in a nutshell ....Without a doubt I'd recommend this villa to anyone. We can't wait for the opportunity to visit again!!

Thanks again Paul for everything.....and we'll be contacting you soon to visit again!

Things I loved- safety, cleanliness, spaciousness, each bedroom had its own bathroom, laundry facility, well equipped kitchen.

The lay out of the house , the pool and the walking distance to the café and restaurants at the Magdelina Hotel allowed us to patronize the local hotel.

Great house, staff and owners.

“Lovely villa with beautiful sunset views”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at Villa Sans-Souci on the Tobago Plantations for 2 weeks from 31.7.13. A lovely villa. Good security so we felt safe at all times. Made use of the alarm and safes just to be sure. Great pool where we enjoyed many a fun early morning or sunset swim. Kids loved using it in the daytime. As there are no fences - you have uninterrupted views of the golf course, palm trees etc and can visit the old sugar plantation mill over to the right of the villa to get a sense of what it was like before it became a golf course/villa and hotel complex. Bedrooms all spacious and airy with air conditioning and fans (which we used at night instead of the noisy air con). Bathrooms all have showers (you turn them on then pull the brass part down under the tap to make them work) and baths. Kitchen has all the appliances you would expect and a hall cupboard houses the huge washer and dryer (great for large loads of beach towels etc). Angela the lovely house maid will come in daily if you so require but we preferred her popping in every few days so that out teenagers could sleep in. We sat outside most evenings and ate all meals around the large table outside. It overlooks the pool yet provides shelter in the rain so there's no need to run for cover when the heavens open and the 'liquid sunshine' appears! Large carriageway drive - our two huge vehicles parked nicely outside - no problem. Ten minutes from the local Pennysavers supermarket (by car) and from the NP pretrol station (Fuel is so cheap on Tobago!) The manned security gates make a note of your registration as you leave and enter the complex - very reassuring. Gardener comes every few days to tend/mow/strim the extensive gardens - beware - he comes early!! Lots of hummingbirds and other beautiful species visit the garden regularly some quite tame. Two large lizards live in the bushes - come out regularly - much to the shock of my daughter and hilarity of the rest of the group. Lots of gheckos/lizards live on outside walls and some amazingly beautiful and colourful, very large caterpillars live in the bushes at the front of the villa. A lovely, relaxed stay had by all 8 in our party. Booking with Paul was stress free and he was happy to answer our many queries beforehand. A great place!
