Blue Mango Cottages - Reader Reports & Opinion

Colin Ramdeholl at Sea Steps and Blue Mango Cottages, a full month after confirming our reservation for Christmas, apparently got a better offer and WITHOUT TELLING US cancelled our reservation! This is terrible business practice and reflects poorly on Tobago. He has ruined our holiday and we want to spare others the same fate.

We really loved our stay in Blue Mango and had the opportunity to stay in two of the appartments at the beginning and the end of our stay for a couple of days each.
We love Blue Mango for all its rustic quirqiness - I have to say the beds (very comfortable) and the the mosquito nets are the best- the verandas and the colours are fab- Colin knows what the essentials are - from the heart this place was built standing on the rocks and working with the land and with intuitive responses to the environment.
You can feel this in the construction: although it could do with a little TLC- to be more specificly a little update in the kitchen area to get rid of some of the rust (a difficulty with the salt/sea air )-
The whole effect of our stay in Blue Mango was to chill us out, to feel the waves - to feel like Robinson Crusoe -Colin - is an incredible guy who has really lived life in a way one can only envy and I admire him for so independantly doing his own thing in a way only he would do.
If you really want an outer worldly experience - literally on top of the waves - this is the one for you.

We had a fantastic stay at Blue Mango in Trinity's Cottage.
Stunning views, breeze, visiting birds through the open living area. The mosquito nets were good and enabled us to sleep easy.
A great base for a family like us with two young children. Castara is lovely, two beaches to visit and beautiful walks if you can take the heat.
Rebecca and Colin are great hosts/owners. Rebecca's cooking is the best in the area.

We absolutely loved our stay in Blue Mango, and Castara as a whole. We stayed in sweet point cottage, and it honestly felt like we had the best view of Tobago! Both beaches are literally 2 mins away, although we spent most of our time on the smaller heavenly bay. Rebecca and Colin are really friendly, and the icing on the cake was when Rebecca surprised us with a private dinner of crab and dumplings in our appartment....brilliant touch!

My wife and I spent the last week of January 2012 in one of the sweet point cottages. It was a wonderful vacation! The location was great, the cottage was clean, comfortable and had an incredible view. Our hosts, Collin and Rebecca made us feel right at home and were accomodaing in every way. Several evenings we ate in Rebecca's restaurant and considered the food the best in Castara. We explored the island and spent time just sitting on the beach. The people were friendly and the island was beautiful. I would highly recommend visiting Tobago and staying at the Blue Mango.
