Our group booked with the Villas of Tobago and we were assigned villa # 133. Upon arrival the superficial surroundings were decent but as we examined more closely this was not really the case.
The downstairs bathroom hadn't been cleaned, the shower stall was moldy and the sink had mildew. We actually had to call the housekeeper back to clean the toilet because this was unacceptable.
The bedding in the lower level bedroom appeared to have not been cleaned as it was also moldy. This bedroom also has one of those old school air conditioners that was so noisy.
Several of the pool lounger chairs were broken as well as some of the patio chairs.
The kitchen was so abused - broken fridge handle, missing dishes, wrecked pots and pans. Even the sink in the kitchen was covered in mildew.
The bathroom towels were well worn. The washer and dryer looked like they were over 20 years old, rusty and loud. You also have to buy laundry detergent and dish washing powder as it isn't provided.
We had no internet access, no dvd player, no jacuzzi (which we expected as not all villas have one) and the tv was outdated.
The only plus side was the private pool but even that needed a good cleaning. We tried to fish some of the leaves out ourselves but the cleaning net was busted as well.
If you are squeamish this is most definitely not for you. We had explained before booking that someone in our party just had surgery and we needed a very well-kept, clean villa so I shudder to think what the other villas look like. Unfortunately she was the one who discovered one of the broken pool loungers in the least convenient way and we literally had to help her up.
I think at the cost of just over $200USD per night you can find something newer and certainly cleaner in Tobago.
