I have had a very disappointing experience with the owners of Federal Villas. I called and made a reservation to stay at this place a month before, confirmed with the owner the times we were coming in , how long we were staying and she said that the place was available and we will get to stay there. I just decided to call her again some days before we were to arrive in Tobago to remind her and she said that the place is no longer available and they gave the available rooms to other people,that was the most upsetting experience. Unfortunately for me I had to rush and look for places last minute to stay, this experience was so upsetting. I just believe people should be a weary of this place when decided where to stay in Tobago.

've given 1 star because the facilities are basic and it would be misleading to give more. This is not for the tourist but for the traveller. Those wishing to get to know the culture. At TT$70.00 per room per night (£44.00 per week) it will allow those (like myself) who are on a strict budget, to spend more time getting to know something of the culture of Tobago.
Situated in the heart of the capital, Scarborough, it is 3 minutes walk from the ferry terminal, the central veg market and the Botanic Gardens and is surrounded by a vocal, vibrant community.
My fellow guests and the manageress Ms Edwards were polite, courteous and considerate and I hope their opinion of me was the same.
The room was en-suite and had a fan. There are cooking, washing and ironing facilities. My room was the one on the top left in the picture.
I really enjoyed my 2 week stay and intend to visit Tobago again and stay there and I would recommend it for backpacker type travellers and single persons on a budget, like myself.
