Paradise Found Villa - Reader Reports & Opinion
Kurtis Alexander from Trinidad visited in April 2010 and awarded
I stayed at Paradise Villa for my wedding and as you can imagine this was after a lot of consideration and review reading. We were also looking for a place that could accommodate the bride and groom and their families a total of twelve people. I have finally gotten around to writing this review after many months of being bowled over and just not knowing what else I can contribute that is not already here.
The truth is all of the familiar clichés apply. The pictures while spectacular come in no way close enough to do justice to how stunning this place is; and the name does truly say it all, this is indeed a paradise found. What else i can do however is gave the reason why i think the place is so special. You would think that with twelve people the place would be crowded, but it was really easy to find all kinds of nooks where you can disappear the place is extremely spacious with well kept lawns and trees. It is tastefully decorated and has all the amenities to keep you and guests entertained when not at the pool. The pool is wonderful, by no means can you do laps in it but it is perfect for just chilling out. The location is convenient especially as you are a stone’s throw away from at least three beaches and you can buy fish just down the road from the villa, carry it back and barbeque. The host was superb; he was all you can ask of a gracious host.
It is a plan of mine that every visit to Tobago I stay at somewhere new, that I am finding extremely hard to accomplish as I have yet to stay at a place that lives up to Paradise Found. I gladly fear that i shall return their many times over.

First of all, the date in which we stayed was September 2000 but i couldnt select this date as it was not available. Myself and my family stayed over at the villa for two weeks and i would just like to say how unbelievably beautiful the villa was. I was 11 at the time of going and we had gone over as my father was getting married and all i can say is that it was the most beautiful and amazing holidays (the kind you can only dream about) and most of this was down to the pure luxury of the villa. We are hoping to go back in a couple of years time for my dads 10th anniversary. I highly recommend renting this villa out, but be careful - you may not want to leave !
The family and I want to thank the Thompson’s for our wonderful stay at Paradise Found Villa. We wanted for nothing.
Everyone from the youngest (7 months) to the eldest found the house and gardens charming and interesting. The pool, being covered, was used from 7am (Oliver 6 and Martha 4) till late in the day and was an absolute essential in coping with the heat and humidity. Rufus, the baby, also loved sitting on the top step and splashing himself.
We love the pace of life, colour and lush vegetation which Gus enjoyed showing us in the Rain Forest and a trip around the island. Tobago and its beaches and forest is a delightful holiday destination. We will return.

Paradise Found Villa
We stayed for 2 weeks in 2002 and had a great time. It was our first visit to Tobago so we have nothing to compare the villa with but here are my views.
It is in a good position only 20 minutes or so from the airport and is on a hill overlooking a beach (across a road).
There are five bedrooms, one is enormous, two are large and two are fairly large.
I thought it was very good value (we were two families - 9 people in all) and well looked-after with helpful staff.
My only minor negative thoughts about it were that the largest bedroom is a bit noisy as it looks out over the road (not a large road but a main one by local standards) and that the pool is a bit small and being covered might not suit all tastes.
If you like sunbathing by the pool you can't do it at this villa although you can sit around the pool and enjoy it if there is a rainstorm rather than having to retreat inside.
However there is an area of garden behind the house where you can sunbathe. The gardens are very pretty and well-tended but they slope quite steeply so are not much use except to look at. You can pick your own limes and aloe vera in the garden!
The rooms were all well-appointed and airconditioned and some (if not all) of them had their own fridge!
As Steve said, Back Bay is wonderful and this villa is within 10 minutes walk/scramble to it so you can go there with just a towel and a drink i.e. no need for worries about possessions 'walking' while you swim.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to a group of up to 10 people.
