Pelican Villa has all the elements of the perfect place to stay in Tobago. The villa is wonderfully spacious, well furnished in cheerful happy colours. There is a small pool on the terrace for keepig cool, with a nice view of trees and flowers You might get visited by Mot Mots and blue tanagers - birds abound,and the sounds of the cicadas and some lively steel pan music tactfully plays in the evenings from time to time from the surrounding villages. It is easy to walk, cath buses, find good places to eat, meet great people, and you don't need to hire a car,we didn't. It is just so comfortable at Pelican Villa and feels truly like home. It is kept spotlessly clean by Macylin, a delightful local lady, and well managed by Marilyn, who can answer any query and makes sure all visitors are comfortable. Otherwise it is discreet, private and just so relaxing to be here. It is one of our best holidays ever, because Pelican is such a special place to stay. If you are picking it from the internet, as we did, you will be well rewarded and surrpised by how good it feels each day ust to wake up in this beautiful villa.

A fantastic vacation.
Tobago was a real paradise, with beautiful unspoiled beaches, rainforest, and waterfalls.
Villa Pelican was the right choice for our family. Spacious, clean, quiet, and a short distance from many wonderful sights and beaches.

The location is beautiful. The villa is very spacious, but was not ready for us: no hot water in the shower, safe was not operating, missing bulbs in the lamps, no internet connection etc. Some of these problems were fixed by the manager.
The furniture in the living room was most uncomfortable. There were no mosquito nets in the bedrooms (big problem!).
No chaicelongs on the balcony, just chairs.

This place was great. My family and I stayed there for a week and the kids enjoyed it. The plunge pool was safe for the kids. I would recomend this place for families or couples we had a blast. The master bedroom was really nice and the bedroom on the ground floor was great. I love this place

Our umpteenth time at Villa Pelican, and we had a wonderful, relaxing time - the only problem being 1 week is far too short!
Clean, bright and spacious, with all the facilities up to date and functioning well - our friends, on their first visit, were hugely impressed and delighted.
And - as always - there was Marclyn to look after us with the biggest smile on the island.
Many birds spotted both around the villa and the strangely appealing shell of the hotel and in the sanctuary adjacent - fantastic.
Will definitely be back - I can taste the Carib as I sit with my feet in the pool even now...
