Lillibets - Reader Reports & Opinion
Roger & Gail from U.K. visited in February 2011 and awarded
Having spent a week on Tobago, we decided to spend the last 2 nights in Castara. We arrived there without having booked any accommodation and, by chance, were offered one of the Lillibets apartments. The owners, Liz and Tom, were in residence and were very welcoming and helpful, making us tea and giving plenty of advice on Castara and the surrounding area.
The apartments are built on the hillside on two levels and accessed via some steep stairs. Tom kindly helped us move our luggage up to the apartment as he was far more used to the stairs than us. Not recommended if you have mobility problems but you would certainly get fit going up and down the stairs for a week.
We had a first floor apartment which was very clean, simply but adequately furnished, with aircon in the bedroom. The kitchen was well equipped for self catering but, as we were only there for 2 nights, our catering was limited to making tea and rum punches! We bought fruit locally for breakfast, which we took sitting on the balcony watching the varied and colourful bird life. It was like sitting in the trees and we enjoyed feeding the birds on fruit and sugar.
Because we were in Castara for such a short time, apart from breakfast we ate all our meals at the Boathouse down on the beach. A very friendly, welcoming place with a nice laid back attitude.
Castara was a great place to end our trip and Lillibets was a good place to stay. We would go back if visiting Tobago again.

Their hospitality was heartfelt. The apartments (3 in total) were clean, spacious and the view beautiful. We stayed on the top floor.
Tom and Lillibet are the best choice for a harmonius stay in castara.

I stayed at Lillibets over the Christmas Holidays a few weeks ago and enjoyed my stay very much. The balcony had a wonderful view of the village and we were steps from the beach. In the morning I enjoyed feeding the birds on the balcony. The room came with a kitchenette that we used regularly although there were also good options for food in the village. Tom and Liz were very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely recommend a stay at this apartment.

The owners of Lilibets are a very nice couple who made us feel welcome. Unfortunately, the first night of our stay the hot water went out, and subsequently we were unable to use the water at all. As a result, we had to move to other accommodation, which the owners of Lilibets paid for, since we had prepaid for our three nights.
I would recommend this place to others, but request an upper room (despite the extra stairs) for the best views.

The pics don't lie - they only limit the marvelous view, amazing sights and sounds, incredible honeymoon spot!!! We were so pleased with everything. We had the whole top floor to ourselves (off-season?) with an occasional visit from a chicken or cat - just being friendly :)
We were very comfortable, your staff was courteous, the place was clean. Love the bathroom! The bed was comfy, no complaints at all...well, yes there is one: WE WISH WE WERE STILL THERE! HA!
Hope to visit again in the near future!
