I would have given this 3 stars but at the end you will see where it drops.
My family stayed there for 4 days after booking it 5 mths prior based on their site information and pictures. Three bedroom house with private pool and a jacuzzi. A jacuzzi! Wahooooooo!
We arrived to a beautiful house with a welcoming housekeeper. As the housekeeper left the reality kicked in. The jacuzzi was not a jacuzzi. The controls to the TV, DVD Player and the Cable did not work so we spent the whole time old schooling it from the sets. The kitchen was upstairs which was a hassle but we knew that before and stocked the mini fridge downstairs with drinks only to find them hot after the whole day passed. Anyways, let's me narrow down this review.
Pro: Three air conditioned bedrooms. They work well.
Con: Walk with comforters as the ones they provided are for show and we were told not to use them.
Pro: Three toilets and baths.
Con: Walk with toiletries. Bath soap, shampoo, and yes toilet paper. They give you one roll and that's it. There is also no curtains on the windows so get ready to put on a show for the neighborhood.
Pro: Jacuzzi. Wahooooo!
Con: It's not a jacuzzi. No hot water and no bubbles. It's actually a miniature pool. How dishonest.
Pro: Kitchen is upstairs so there is a mini fridge downstairs.
Con: Mini fridge doesn't work.
Pro: Cable and WiFi.
Con: Cable is local and all channels showed the same movie (weak signal). 3G was 10 times faster than WiFi.
Pro: Private pool. This was the best part of the house.
Con: We had to clean the pool of baby frogs every morning. No probs for me. Only me. Lol.
Pro: Great house keeper. Very very nice lady and accommodating.
All in all, thanks to Tobago, we made the best of our annual vacation. The kids enjoyed the pool, the beach and the sites. The last thing was we were met 2 hrs before our check out time by another housekeeper because of new guests arriving 1 hr after our check out time. This made us very very uncomfortable and rushed. We could not relax and eat breakfast, we forgot stuff in the rush and ended up leaving 1hr before check out. Very inhospitable. If you are looking at this place I would recommend that you look around. There are many other places that are cheaper. We took this place over the others because of the jacuzzi. If not that alone let us down it was a disappointment.
