Iris Rivera from U.S.A. visited in May 2009 and awarded
We were only able to stay one night at Alibaba's but it was more amazing then what we expected. The view was incredible and the rooms were clean and well kept. I HIGHLY recommend it. We are planning to go back and stay more days.

We had a wonderful holiday. The apartment is ideally situated by the beach and has great views of the beach. The accommodation is good. It is basic but all the necessities, such as toilet rolls and salt are provided. The bay is beautiful and the snorkelling from the shore is great. We saw squid, rays and many of the usual fish. The fan corals were beautiful.
Stephanie and Brian (Alibaba) are happy, welcoming and very helpful. They looked after us and were a constant source of information.
Castara is a lovely place to stay. It is not yet commercialised and has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere.

The apartment was comfortable and well maintained. Loved the well thought out details - from the bird feeders on the balcony, to the corkscrews to the stepstool so that kids could reach the sink. The owners were friendly and quite helpful.We enjoyed out stay, and felt quite at home.

Having traveled to many countries in a wide variety of accommodation types, we must report Alibabas to be one of the most peaceful, beautiful and idyllic places we've been to. Laid back, excellent views, quiet, with beautiful birds on the deck, excellent facilities in the suite and a great location make it excellent value for the $$$.
If you're looking for the Sheraton... stay at the Sheraton. If you're looking for something relaxed and cozy... this is the place.
Very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable hosts. Highly recommended!!!

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at the end of January 2009 at the start of our annual holiday. Even although the weather wasn't at its best we had great time.
The accommodation was "as it said on the tin" with just about everything catered for, including umbrella. View was superb, even in the rain - a couple of rum punches combined with the lapping of the sea and the singing of the birds can just about redefine heaven!
The bed was extremely comfortable with no need for a/c. It was magic having a swim off Little Castara then just wondering up to our room to dry off and have breakfast.
If you want it simple and quiet then this is the place for you.
