“Stunning property in a serene, magical location...and much, much more”
Reviewed April 3, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We, a family of four stayed here for 8 nights in late February 2016, and we hope to be back next year! The three things that compel us to want to return to stay here are:-
Stunning property in a serene, magical location. Perched atop one side of a palm tree-lined, small and secluded crescent-shaped bay, The Marion Villa offers breathtaking views (visible from every part of the Villa) over the ocean and is the perfect place to relax with nature. From, the moment you step in through the Villa’s front door, everything (e.g. the floor to-ceiling windows, the low-slung furnishings, and the cleverly designed ensuite-bathrooms) is conceived to retain the focus on the jaw-dropping natural beauty outside. We spent much of our time sitting out on the pool deck/outside terrace, watching the daily cruise ship glide gently into port at 7am, the pelicans plunge for fish, and the sun set in the horizon (the Villa is eastward facing). I challenge anyone, when standing in the pool, not to be mesmerised by the waves gently breaking onto the pristine sand of the beach in the bay below. The beach’s palm trees offer great respite in the afternoon when the intensity of the sun fully floods the Villa’s pool deck/terrace, whilst the ocean is surprisingly calm for this side of the island and perfect for cooling off/swimming.

Relatively excellent value-for-money. The Marion Villa’s rates are not cheap – and that is indeed how it should be. However, when comparing The Marion Villa relative to other luxury accommodation (usually benefitting from resort facilities and amenities) we have stayed in on Tobago, we can confidently say The Marion Villa outpaces comfortably other alternatives for the sheer overall product on offer relative to the price paid.

Professional, attentive, and fast service. The Marion Villa is still virtually brand new, so unsurprisingly we experienced one or two teething problems. Crucially, however, we were very impressed at the owner’s and his local representatives’ responsiveness to the couple of minor issues we encountered.

“The Marion Villa - Cosy getaway”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you want a getaway from the crowds and shared facilities that the conventional hotel affords you, then The Marion Villa is the place for you! This is a new ultra-modern facility within a private resort community that gives you the feeling of being in a secluded beach front home while still being just a leisurely stroll from the quaint town of Scarborough, Tobago's capital. The spectacular view is visible from every part of the Villa so everyone can sit up late at night and enjoy the landscape. There is even a small private beach just below the Villa so if you don't want to laze in the pool then you can hit the beach. Cool fun!

“ABOSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING VILLA ON THE WATER”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This was the most relaxing vacation I have been on. The villa was immaculate and the manager of the villa granted every request I asked. There was wi-fi throughout, a Bose sound system, and TVs in all the rooms. Waking up every day to a view of the ocean was amazing. The villa was also 15 minutes away from the airport and close to town. The only downfall was that I wished I could have stayed here forever!

Check in and out - friendly, fast and smooth.

Room - nice size and very modern. Open layout concept in the living room/kitchen. Everything was brand new and worked well so I never had to call for any repairs.

Bathrooms/Housekeeping – Immaculately kept and the bvlgari products were amazing!

Pool and Spa – very well kept and plenty of lounge chairs

Beach – Beautiful views of the beach and it is only a few steps away. The serene beach also has a bar which serves food which was a huge plus

Kitchen –the chef stove was amazing for cooking
