Petit Careme - Review Page 5

Pool & Grounds

The private plunge pool at Petit CaremeThe centre of the development is dominated by an attractive 18m swimming pool, with depths ranging from 1.2 to 2.3m. The overflow from a small raised toddler’s pool makes a nice water feature. The pool terrace is of adequate width and furnished with five plastic recliners.

Adjacent to the pool is a small building that acts as an ‘entertainment area’ and which would appear to have been designed as a bar.

Given the fact that the Villas On The Green represent a highly desirable accommodation option, we were quite surprised to find that only about half were occupied during our stay. The season was getting on and everyone had returned home after the Easter break. From our point of view it was ideal, because we love our peace and quiet. However, even on our previous trip, when all five villas had been occupied, the development never appeared busy and this was particularly noticeable around the pool.

Staff & Security

Petit Careme Villa is managed by a lovely housekeeper, Charmaine, who services the apartment every day except Sundays. Virtually every report in the villa's guest book sings her praises and I'm not surprised. She is a terrific cook and you can make private arrangements with her to cook meals for your party, do laundry or babysit.

Villas On The Green swimming pool
Villas On The Green is managed centrally as far as ground and pool maintenance is concerned. The staff were friendly and unobtrusive. We have stayed on the development on four occasions over the past fifteen years and can confidently say that we have never seen the development looking better than it does now.

Electronically-operated gates protect the main entrance to the development. The gates can be operated from the villas, or by remote control from approaching vehicles. A security guard is on duty from 6pm to 6am seven nights a week. The villas are fitted with security bars on all windows and doors. There is also a key-operated security safe for valuables.

Conclusion

Petit Careme at Tobago Villas On The GreenI hate to be less than original, but after another thoroughly enjoyable stay at Petit Careme I can only repeat the conclusion we wrote following our 2005 stay – the year that it won the "Villa Of The Year" award from the local government's tourism department for the second year running:

"Our five days at Petit Careme Villa passed all too quickly. This is undoubtedly a villa that I could move into, permanently, tomorrow. The location is superb and you couldn't be more centrally placed for every shop, restaurant and other facility on the island. The villa itself is tremendously comfortable, from a living point of view. This villa would not feel crowded even with a full complement of eight people in residence."
