We had a lovely time at Sharons's place. Her niece Sparkle is a sweetheart. After an exhausting walk first down to big bay, before we realised our mistake back up again and back down again, she just grabbed our two heavy bags an carried them singlehandedly to our room.Thanks again Sparkle.
The view from the balcony is amazing, the room is very nice and the fridge supplied ice cubes liberally ice cubes for our rumpunch. Great mattress. You definitely don't miss hot water in the shower this climate at all.
At Seaview Inn you get great meals and we loved the Wednesday night drumming.We loved drinking our beer there after swimming at the beautiful beach.
If we ever come back to Tobago we will definitely stay at boatview again, and can happily recommend it to everyone.

Lovely views probably one of the best in castara and sharon and her husband were also lovely, sharon who owns the bar on the beach serves some lovely food and a mixture of local and british and the best pizza ive ever had.
the place is ideal for the beach for food and drink and also the car hire company is on your door step.
a couple of complaints though the accomadation is a little youth hostelish and the bed linen although washed regulary always looked like it had been screwed up in a ball and once it was very foisty it hadnt been dried properly also a new mossie net wouldnt go amiss some very large holes which needed pegging together.

Boatview is amazing!
I have stayed here many times since 2010 and keep going back.
The rooms are clean, comfortable and practical.
The view from the balcony is spectacular.
You can see into the reef from up there.
All sorts of species of birds can also be seen, some even sit on the balcony a bit.
Sharon and Brenton are a lovely couple who cater to your every need.
They also run the Boathouse Restaurant right below, on the beach front.
The meals taste so good and Sharon makes a wonderful home made ice cream as well.
On Wednesday nights they have local drumming and guests sometimes try it or choose to dance to the beat of the drums.
Snorkeling on this beach is a priceless experience.
The only problem I have ever had at Boatview is having to leave.
Cheers to Sharon and Brenton on a wonderful job.
See you soon!

My fiance (he's British) and I had the most amazing stay at Boatview! It was our "pre honeymoon" vacation and we just wanted to get away from it all. Sharon was an efficient, thoughtful, pleasant hostess who made sure we were picked up and dropped off on time at the airport, that our room was warm and welcoming and that she was available should we need anything.
Boatview, while not being a 5 star hotel, offers comfortable, clean and welcoming accommodation with a view which is unsurpassed!
We'll be returning during the summer, hopefully.

Spacious room with all the necessary amenities. Stunning view overlooking Castara Bay! Sharon, the owner, was so friendly and very accommodating. Room not as cleanly as it could have been on arrival, however we loved the location so much, and after considering the reasonable cost for the room, we cleaned it to our own satisfaction. Perhaps the cleaning staff needs to be checked up on before guests move in. All things considered, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Boatview and will recommend it to others.
