Plantation Beach Villas - Reader Reports & Opinion

I am in my low twenties and have been staying at these villas with my family for years now. This most recent trip I was there with my girlfriend, brother and a few friends. We all went over to Tobago for a relaxing two weeks. The weather was beautiful with only one day of rain. There is always so much to do in Tobago so we were always busy. The local foods must be one of my favorite things about being in Tobago. The girls at PBV cook some amazing meals that you just can't get enough of. The staff is always very friendly and willing to help make your trip the best it can be. This is definitely my home away from home.

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......

Hi! Let me preface by saying I have never had the pleasure of visiting Tobago in the past, but I am about to change that this fall.
I am looking for any information I can glean in regards to Plantation Beach Villas and its surrounding area. I am interested in what is available nearby, as i would prefer not to rent a car for our visit. Any information on nearby restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, water sports( especially scuba diving), attractions, entertainment etc. would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
Best regards; jbm
