Just returned from a one week stay at PBV. Everything was excellent. Staff, facilities, amenities, are all top notch. I have been to at least a dozen carribean islands, and Tobago, Stonehaven beach, and PBV are as good as it gets. Thanks Sean for the royal treatment. Hope to see you again soon.

We have stayed at Plantation Beach Villas every New Year for the past 6 years a nd it just gets better every year - we take all our children and grandchildren with us put on our swimming gear and do nothing! Time to talk, read, swim walk alog the beach and relax. For this sort of holiday I think you could not do better anywhere in the world! Sean, Susanne and Fiona - not forgetting Ivan(Best dancer in Tobago) have become like old friends.

We spent a lovely week in Tobago at Plantation Beach Villas in May 2007.
The Villas are large, comfortable, clean and well equipped.
The grounds were beautifully maintained on a daily basis as was the housekeeper service.
The swimming pool is in a lovely setting a 100 yard walk to an outstanding beach.
There was a little noise from the adjacent hotel but this finished early evening and was not a problem.
Security was not an issue, but the grounds were patrolled early evening through to the following morning.
Good location; restaurant within walking distance and food at the pool bar but a car is recommended.
Unless you have one of the first two villas you should be aware that there is a steep hill to climb when walking back from the pool.
We found the mosquitoes a real problem although the Villa was thoughtfully well equipped with plug in repellents for indoor and coils for outdoor use.
A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, would thoroughly recommend.

We had 2 wonderful weeks at PBV in 2005, and to go back this year was to challenge all the good memories from last year. And to make it short; PBV are the best place we’ve ever been too, and this year’s vacation was even better than last year. The weather was better this time, for one thing.
But most of all the feeling of coming “home” was the best. We felt very welcome, we got settled in immediately, and all members of the staff took care of us in the best possible way.
So why is PBV a wonderful place to stay?
- The villas are spacious and well equipped
- The villas, surroundings and pool area is well kept and maintained
- The wildlife can be experienced from the villas
- The pool and Barefoot-grill&bar gives you all you need to have a nice day in the sun
- Ivan makes great Pina Coladas :-)
- The people working there are polite, friendly and smiling
- The beach is close and one of the best on the island
- Great snorkling at the northern end of the beach
The place is hard to leave when going home. We highly recommend PBV to anyone who visit Tobago.
We can only hope to be back sometime......
Plantation Beach Villas (pbv), July 2005
We decided to stay there before reading the MyTobago review. We stayed in villa 4,5 and 6 and had lots of space. The villas look very nice, are located on what we found to be one of the best beaches on the island, and offers a pool and bar for guests only. We loved the villas, and especially the porch. The area around the villas are well kept, and at the same time gives you the chance to see local bird and animal-life up close. Living in the villas we felt at home, but then again with more beautiful and relaxing surroundings than we have ever had before. Anything at all to complain about? A little noise from the road behind villa 5&6. Maybe more trees could have been cut, so that the sea-view would improve. Just minor things really.
However beautiful, it always comes down to how people treat you. From start to end we felt the genuine interest from all of the staff at PBV. The welcoming meal, the beers and cold drinks in the fridge, the arranged pool-side dinner was just a few of the things we appreciated. Sean and his people provided top service regardless of what we asked for. Our villa attendants kept everything clean and nice, and made the vacation easier for all of us.
So is the PBV worth visiting; Yes, absolutely. My personal opinion is that if anybody will not love these villas and the people that run the place, they are better off to stay at home. I have never stayed at a more comfortable, beautiful and personal place.
Thank you Sean w/staff, we hope to see you all again!
