Guest Report

Post by Colin Harper (The Harps) »

We stayed at a bungalow (duplex) 38b. It was well equipped with cooker/oven, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, blender, fridge freezer, 3 TV's with satellite, DVD and CD stereo. On the balcony was a jacuzzi and we had access to the pool. The two bedrooms had aircon and en-suite. No aircon in main sitting room but it had 3 sets of double doors that can open. There was an outside toilet and shower room and washer / drier. There was also a wall safe.

The apartment was only about 5 or 6 years old so was still like new. We rented through Virgin Holidays and we had our apartment serviced every day, (even our dishes were done!). The reception staff were very helpful and efficient.

Should you wish the facilities at the VHL TOBAGO (formerly the Hilton) were available for use / hire. The hotel was only about a 5 min walk from our apartment. We had a look around the hotel and were very grateful we did NOT book there!

The grounds of the Plantations Resort were immaculate, we were a stones throw from the sea, (not a beach though) and we looked over the fairway of the golf course. It is on the more windy Atlantic side but with temperatures of about 30-35 degrees we were glad of the breeze.

As for security - there are two main entry checkpoints. Until they got to know us we were stopped and asked for ID / names. As you drive round the development there were about 3 or 4 other check points. As you enter the area our apartment was there was another checkpoint with barrier. We were stopped and asked for ID etc. At night some of the checkpoints close but we saw a roving security vehicle with green flashing light as a visible presence.

It was extremely quiet, we could hear the sea, birds and wind at night which was very relaxing. In all the standards were very high, excellent service, great location. In my opinion it is an absolute must if you are renting a villa and want peace of mind.
