Guest Report   

Maya Persad from Canada visited in July 2018 and awarded  Four out of Five

Beautiful Villa..Housekeeper was very accommodating to our requests. However, there are few things that need updating in the villa. Linens are very old fashion, dish rack was very old and rusty. The AC was not working properly in 2 of the bedrooms. On the day of checkout, our agent came to villa and the first thing he said to us...you all know 11am is check out right? Not even a good morning or did you all enjoy your stay. Gardener and BBQ cleaner came to the villa around 9:30am while we were still in the villa. We felt very rushed that morning hence, the reason we left a few our items at the villa.

Overall, clean, very spacious and accommodating for bigger families.

We had a wonderful stay in Tobago and basing ourselves at Azulejo was the cream on the cake.

In the most amazing location overlooking Stonehaven bay.

Within easy reach of all the activities we had planned. Huge huge house made us feel very special for the week!

The pool is out of this world.

The staff were ready to help us with anything we needed - highly recommend. Where else in the Caribbean can you experience this kind of luxury for the money?

My family of 6 and I recently spent 4 nights at Azulejo in the company of two other families, totaling 16 persons - 6 adults and 10 children ranging in age from 9 to 16.

On the positive side of things, Azulejo is indeed an absolutely beautiful property, conveniently and ideally located on the Grafton Ridge. Its architecture takes full advantage of its hilltop location to provide spectacular views and enjoy the cool Caribbean breeze. The infinity pool is absolutely lovely as is the deck on which it is located.

It is extremely spacious and could easily house the 70 guests for a wedding as seen advertised elsewhere. Each of the 6 bedrooms upstairs has its own en suite bathroom and balcony with a postcard worthy view.

Its kitchen is reasonably well equipped and the usual amenities of washer, dryer etc are available.

The grounds are beautifully maintained.

We can only give a rating of 3 stars, however, for the following reasons:

1) Safety. Nowhere could we find any review which mentioned that this villa is NOT appropriate for children. It behooves the owners and other property managers to clearly state up front to any would-be tenant that the property is strictly 12 years and over. There are numerous safety hazards for the very young, the elderly or the infirm. These include windows without railings that are child, and even adult height in some cases, which start at floor/stair level overlooking a 20+ foot drop onto concrete. The spaces between the railing bars on the patio could easily allow a toddler to fall. And the railing on the pool deck was loose. All these would be unsafe even for a healthy adult who happens to slip.

2) Security. While the wooden shutter windows that open all the way back to allow views and breeze are beautiful, many are warped and do not shut completely. This poses a serious security risk in an island which, unfortunately, can no longer boast of having no violent crime.

3) Maintenance. The external appearance of the villa no longer matches the pictures that are liberally posted. It is is dire need of a cleaning / paint job. The driveway is in need of a powerwash (as noted by more than one of us who slipped while trying to walk up or down). Some shutters and also the built-in louvres on the doors are warped or broken. Some of the wooden fixtures in the bathrooms are badly mildewed. The overall sense of the house was one of mustiness and not being quite fully clean. This was evidenced by debris found under more than one bed.

In conclusion, while the raw bones of the property are indisputably beautiful, and even in its somewhat rundown state it is still a lovely location for groups of adults, this property is not on our repeat list.

I have had the pleasure of at Azulejo in March 2013, Feb 2012, March 2011, April 2010, January 2009.

It has to be one of the most stunning villa's I have stayed at anywhere in the Caribbean! The Rooms are extremely comfortable with large private balconies for each room. The main living room is massively spacious and with the open facia of the Villa gets much welcome breeze throughout the day. With so much space there are many private places to relax or cool off either under ceiling fans or in air conditioned rooms. If the sun gets to hot or in the evenings it is always nice to be able to play pool, or table tennis or watch a movie.

The deck area with its amazing views and infinity pool is where I have spent countless hours. Grafton Beach, Mt Irvine are within 5 minute on foot with nice bars and food available all day if you want to stay close to home. For convenience the small village 5 minutes by car has the great food of the Fish Pot and small friendly take away options.

For me I really cant fault the villa or the location and certainly plan on returning the Tobago & Azulejo next year - the only issue is what to do until then!!!

Based on the top of Grafton Ridge in beautiful gardens the views over the Caribbean - Pidgeon point - Grafton peach and the nylon pool are stunning.
