We had booked Kia's for our vacation to Tobago based on the reviews. I figured that the reviews were basically good except for a few, my mistake. Although Karen is very sweet and kind, it would not be enough for me to ever book this place again. Let me first say the place was clean. We arrived that evening and left first thing in the morning. Upon arriving I thought the place was okay, not a 4 star place but tolerable. Well, our evening started out with bugs upon bugs coming in through the shutters that apparently do not close all the way and some of them were broken. So, my husband went and asked if they had something to put over the windows. We were given a mosquito net and sheets. We had to light mosquito coils inside the apartment and we still had tons of bugs flying in as there where more shutters that could not be covered. So right then and there we had made up our mind that we would be leaving in the morning. Well, our night got worst from there. At around 11:45 p.m. a crowd formed outside by the ATM where there is a little plaza and they were screeching their cars up and down the street as well as blasting there music as if they were in a club but an outside club. This partying went on til around 2 a.m. which of course did not allow us for much sleep. We were so frustrated and I felt that this is something that the owners would know about because you could tell that this was apparently something that is done on a regular basis, because more and more people kept pulling up and parking their cars and getting out drinking and dancing. The bed in the room was so uncomfortable as you could feel the springs on it, it reminded me of a box spring just with a little of cushion but not much because if you put your hand on the bed you could feel the springs. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that the futon is metal in the living room and it is sunken down, you can see the metal piece bent down close to the floor. Also, there is an apartment or something that is in the same facility but apparently on the other side. You could here the people's conversation, which was annoying as well. This place is not well kept and I would never ever recommend anyone take their family there as our youngest was miserable just for those hours that we stayed. Like I said Ms. Karen is very nice but if you are going to have a place like that with so much potential, take the time to fix it up and make it more comfortable for your guest. The only reason why I did not rate this place as terrible is because Ms. Karen is a nice person.
