This is not what I had in mind but the fact that I was out for most of the time reduced the negative impact the place might have made on our annual jazz holiday.
This place is another example of the too numerous examples of poor standards plaguing Tobago's hospitality industry.
On arrival the rooms were mixed up since we were a party of 5 couples and 1 couple brought a another young adult. 1 couple arrived earlier and was placed in the wrong room. Ok. That done we settled into our rooms and I turned on the AC in my room. A sickening scent was soon apparent and on investigating I realized it was in fact the ac unit. I serviced the unit myself and eliminated the scent.
Next was the toilet that could barely flush. The kitchen barely had wares and the parking was unacceptable for the number of rooms.
The pros? The owner was willing to discount his advertised price somewhat.
I don't intend to ever stay here again. If you don't mind a cheaply run place with mediocre standards, here is the place for you.

It was a little difficult to find as it is off a main road. Keron, his lovely wife or his father were always available either in person or phone. You may need a vehicle for easy of getting around.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom appartment and my daughter and husband stayed in a studio room. The accommodation was amazing, the furniture and decor is very modern with a beautiful chaze lounge in the studio apartment. They were spacious and clean with all the facilities you could want.
One morning we were given fresh bananas, freshly cut from the tree next door, another we were given mangoes from the tree on the other side.
This is a family business and every one is so helpful and accommodating, I have booked my friend in there in March and i would most definitely stay there again

Lovely people to deal with Kerron and Petal are very accommodating in our stay in Tobago. My daughter loved playing with their two boys and were very polite. The surrounding neighbours are friendly and nice. Its usually a very quiet area and peaceful.

Cannot say enough about how happy and satisfied
we were with our guest room. Would recommend
this guest house to anyone looking for reasonable
rates, courteous service, clean rooms and every
convenience in the kitchen. Awesome experience. Will
definitely stay here again. Only heads up to the
Owner/Manager is that the kitchen needs a can opener
and paper towels :)

Islanders Place was very clean, spacious and near to the beach. The landlord was very helpful but did not crowd our space. The kitchen is well equipped with a stove, microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge which made it convenient to cook our own meals. However, to maintain the beauty of the apartments, I would recommend that the landlord varnishes or paints the cupboards and bedroom doors. They look old. Also, the wireless internet was not that strong. Overall, I give Islanders Place a very good rating for the price.
