“Terrible accommodations!”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I am so saddened about this place! The first thing I wanted to say is shame shame! We were greeted by a young man who gave us a key and said if you need anything call . We were not shown around and how to use anything. We never met the house manager which I felt that was strange from the start. The wifi was terrible and the television was loud at times and then the sound went low on other channels. We had kids we and we needed those things to be on point. to say the least.

The mud at the bottom of the property was deplorable!

Thank Goodness we had an amazing drivers that took us out of that dreadful place every day.

False advertisement about the walk to the beach especially when I stated it was a family with children . We felt taken advantage of because you needed a car and should have been given tips or just told the truth. The simple fact that the house manager never came to meet us was so unacceptable.

We came from the states believing the place would have a been so much better that it was.

We showed other people where we were staying and they couldn't believe the condition of place .

I paid on time and with no problem and I got such a terrible return.

In all good conscience ,I could not recommend this place to anyone.

If they would spruce it up the place and get a house manager that can meet and greet guest maybe their may be hope for the hummingbird villa!

I really don't believe the actually owner knows how the place is being run ( it's jus my opinion I am not sure if this is true.

We are mortified and somewhat baffled that you had such a negative experience in what, for us, has always been a place of beauty and sanctuary.

You say you were given false information and taken advantage of over the question of whether you could walk to the beach. But it clearly states on our TripAdvisor page that the nearest beach, Grafton, is a three-minute drive away. And under Maps, it says a car is advised. We have had guests with small children who preferred not to have a car so it seems to us that the decision of whether or not to have a car was based on personal choice and not misinformation.

Our villa manager cannot be present to check every guest in. She tells us that she spoke to you on the phone when you arrived at the ferry port, and asked you to call her if there were any problems. We agree that the young man who checked you in should have shown you how everything works, and we've asked our villa manager to make sure all of her staff are properly trained.

She also tells us that mud has accumulated at the bottom of the driveway and she will ensure that doesn't happen again.

We've checked out the television and it's working fine although we're enquiring as to whether the cable company may have been having problems.

Tobago does not have wifi speeds as fast as the United States, but the connection available in Hummingbird is as fast as anywhere on the island. Upgrades to the network are under way and as soon as faster speeds are available, we will subscribe to them.

We would like to offer you our sincere apologies for any area in which we were at fault and we will certainly take on board your comments to try and improve our service.

Kind regards,

Lisa and Billy Stickland (owners)

The Island of Tobago is a well kept secret paradise, not spoiled by tourism and with enough to keep you gently entertained for a week or more. With a bountiful of beaches to spend long, lazy days on, waterfalls, rain forrest, visit a cocoa farm, cocktails at sunset and more. Hummingbird Villas is the perfect place to call home while you stay on this Island, with plenty of space for a large family or a group of friends, with a pool, and located on the edge of a sanctuary of tropical birds, with a view out to the ocean. Hummingbird is quite peaceful yet easy access to all facilities, the perfect place to rest, rejuvenate and relax with loved ones.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 15 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I have stayed in Hummingbird Villa four times the last time I went was January this year (2015), I have a young son who I brought with me, and I also went the year I was pregnant, Its the perfect place to go to with family or just with a group of friends. The villa is perfectly designed bringing the indoors out and the outdoors in. The bedrooms are very large with en suites and the beds are divine, fresh white sheets (my favorite!). I can recommend this villa to any age group, the pool is perfect and very safe for the little ones and the beach is walking distance away.
