The Cuffie River Nature Retreat is in a very lovely, quiet location. The accommodations were very nice. The meals were included and were all delicious! They have a nice elevated pool which is refreshing and relaxing. The bird watching from pool-side is amazing.

Our stay at Cuffie River was AWESOME! First, the location is beautiful, quiet, totally surrounded by birds, hummingbirds beautiful flowers and vegetation. The rooms are very comfortable with rocking chairs on the patio. Every corner of the lodge is designed to enjoy nature: including the small library, patio, pool and ping-pong area. The food was exceptional. Being vegetarian, we were happily surprised with the variety and quality of the dishes served. The tours and guides arranged by Regina at Cuffie River were high quality. We thoroughly enjoyed this portion of our stay in Tobago and would eagerly suggest this lodge to anyone visiting Tobago and wanting to enjoy nature.

Happy to find this place well into the wilderness but a very nice place indeed to stay for a couple of days. We were superbly taken care of with e g lovely breakfasts and dinners with food from own and local supplies. Climate splendid and for a birder like me wonderful to wake up with all the bird calls and not least to be surrounded by hummingbirds, even flying through our room. Great place in order to experience a different Tobago away from the busy South-east.

We had the pleasure of staying 7 nights at the Cuffie River Resort, and we absolutely adored it. The resort rests on the edge of the rain forest and Regina and her husband run this place with a family-like hospitality and great personality. You feel like coming home to relatives you havenīt seen for a long time!
Lying in the middle of "bird-paradise" might make you think bird watching is all this place have to offer. Yes, there are a lot of tropical birds at Cuffie River but we enjoyed hikes on beautiful forest roads, relaxing in the quiet of the resort or just to lay by the rooftop pool, overlooking the rainforest and having the occasional flocks of wild parrots flying over you. And of course we like seeing hummingbirds fly through our room during the day. This place offers so much - for couples, families or people who like to hike and see nature. A definite recommendation! You will leave more relaxed than ever.
