Reefview-Apartments

The Antigua -"Psycho"(*)- Hotel

The Positive Feedback Phenomenon?

ANTIGUA is an unbelievably beautiful place with truly wonderful and lovable people.

Most tourists – of course including those who made the mistake of booking at “Reefview Apartments” – travel to the Islands at a time of year when it is cold, and Grey, and nasty, and wet etc. at home, when snow has been blowing thru the streets of your home towns and the general mood tends to be miserable……

A little update:
I just found the following text on one of their Tripadvisor-Listings. Worth to take a close look:

This 1 bedroom beach apartment is part of ‘ReefView Apartments & Cottages’ located in lush tropical gardens close to the shores of Cades Bay and the Cades Bay Marine Reserve. We offer 2 seaview apts & a Beach Loft Cottage in its own private courtyard on 2 floors.

With its covered seating areas outside and cathedral ceilings and quiet efficient fans inside – the Oceanview Penthouse is a cool, airy and spacious home from home.

The comfortable queen size bed is draped in egyptian cotton sheets and there are comfy cushions aplenty.

The en suite bathroom comes complete with rainfall shower.

Let’s analyze this: 

This 1 bedroom beach apartment is part of ‘ReefView Apartments & Cottages’ located in lush tropical gardens close to the shores of Cades Bay and the Cades Bay Marine Reserve. We offer 2 seaview apts & a Beach Loft Cottage in its own private courtyard on 2 floors.

“beach”, “Reef View”, “close to shore”, “Cades Bay”, “Cades Bay Marine Reserve”, “Seaview”, “Beach (Loft)”….
2 Sentences // approx 40 words – 18 lies (approx 50%!) and it seems impossible to stress the implication any further thatyou’d be basically staying “more or less right at the water’s edge” (which would justify their  rates) …. well check “Location” (link in the menu above) to see how a true, honest and correct representation of the facts that is.
and
“lush tropical gardens”? There is NO garden whatsoever – just a bunch of tropical bushes running alongside the narrow walk leading to the apartments. The rest is the piling of junk of the selfconfessed “hoarder” Karoll Williams.
and
Did they mention “private”? What a laugh! Check the videos on this page to see what their guests “privacy” does mean to Nick and Karoll Williams of the “ReefviewApartments”!

With its covered seating areas outside and cathedral ceilings and quiet efficient fans inside – the Oceanview Penthouse is a cool, airy and spacious home from home.

“Quiet efficient fans”? Well, they maybe would be (lets skip the “efficient”-part of the sentence, the fans are cheap, old, worn out and hardly manage to move the sticky air at all) – but they also are the “smoke screen”, the “official excuse” for Nick and Karoll Williams to violate their guest’s privacy.
If caught snooping and prying on their guests during their absence, they simply claim they “had to” switch off the ceiling fans.
So what good are they in the first place if you end up returning to a hot and sticky apartment (so much about the “cool and airy”-part) after a day on wonderful Antigua?
and
“home from home”? In the US, where most of the guests at ReefviewApartments would be coming from, it would be perfectly legal to shoot an intruder you find inside your HOME!
Lucky for Karoll and Nick, Antigua is not the USofA or they probably would be long since dead.

The comfortable queen size bed is draped in egyptian cotton sheets and there are comfy cushions aplenty.

Have a close look at their own PR pictures – especially of the “Top-Floor Apartment”. It’ll be easy for you to notice, that the bed had to be shoved all the way to one wall so it would fit inside the room in the first place. “Comfortable”?
and
“Egyptian Cotton Sheets”? Well, if the stuff I have been sleeping on is “egyptian cotton”, then I am actually a Pharao? What a pile of B.S.!
Its nothing but normal sheeting of a little below average quality.

The en suite bathroom comes complete with rainfall shower.

Another good one! Because in a way you could call it “rainfall shower” ….. if you’d define “rainfall” as in the caribbean afternoon drizzles.
Water-Pressure is a joke, but maybe that at least prevents them from seriously polluting the environment of their property: Because all the black – and grey water does get drained straight into the ground!
(So don’t be too surprised if it sometimes stinks on the property not only from the ever present dog-poop and cat-piss)

Beds: 3 Queen Beds, 3 Sofa Beds, 2 Cribs
TripAdvisor property ID 6851761

3 Queen Beds? – Yes,… in all 3 Apartments they have taken together!
False and Misleading – in my opinion actually Fraudulent – Advertising every step of the way….
and:
Tripadvisor?
I first thought that all these positive reports, all this praise does come from people suffering from serious “happiness-hormones-attack”.
But had to find out since, that Tripadvisor (as VRBO etc.!) simply refuse to publish negative reviews of (only this?) property.
No matter how well documented the complaints are – as I believe we have with this website.
But: As usual it is about money! About Profit! Tripadvisors!
If you’d know the truth – you most likely would not ever dream about booking places like this – and if you don’t make a booking, Tripadvisor wont make any money.
So, they (Tripadvisor, VRBO, LonelyPlanet, FlipKey etc.) intentionally leave you in the dark!
(But that actually does make these pages “accessories to any crimes” being committed at these properties. I wonder who will be the first victim to seek compensation not only from criminals like Karoll and Nick Williams – but actually from Tripadvisor et all. !
(You can count on me to be available as a witness!)

My best and truly free advice?

DO NOT TRUST any of these raving & praising reviews found on any of these Platforms! True, it does take scrolling thru a number of pages on Google, because Tripadvisor has literally highjacked the first couple of pages, but you’ll eventually find true and honest reviews and even complete websites like this one.
Then, and only then you can make “educated decissions” as to where to spend your next vacation!

Another little Update (20.03.2016):
I basically just stumbled across one of their listings with the Homeaway-Tripadvisor-VRBO-etc. “Gang of Websites” ….
Even so that I by now am really used to reading nothing but lies coming from the crooks running ReefviewApartments in Cades Bay, Urlings, Antigua – THIS ONE did BLOW even MY MIND!

Most of all: the Homeaway / Tripadvisor & VRBO (etc.) group KNOWS that these are nothing but lies. I have made all the information, the evidence, the pictures, the videos available to them…. and yet they are allowing the “Reefview-Crooks” (Nick -possibly- Williams and his wife “Kalipso Karoll” (which uses different names depending what website you’d be checking out) ) to proceed with luring unsuspecting travelers, guests, tourists making their reservations in good faith, into their “Psycho-Hotel-Death-Trap”!
Anyway: Check out the in-depth analyzes we did compile of just that one listing in VRBO by clicking this link:
