Just returned from 2 weeks at Kariwak Village, and what a lovely place it is! The food and service were both amazing. Whatever we had to eat was absolutely DELICIOUS and the staff were so lovely and friendly, they couldn't do enough. The swimming pool area is quite small but was never overcrowded and the lush tropical gardens with the jacuzzi, fish ponds, hammocks and ajoupa's were truly beautiful and relaxing. Cynthia Clovis took the time everyday to speak to each of her guests and was always around to make sure that everyone was happy. She clearly knows a thing or too about cooking, we cannot express how tasty the food was! The cabanna's by the pool are not luxurious but very comfortable and very clean and located perfectly. This place is a real haven smack in the middle of Crown Point and we left after two weeks feeling totally relaxed. Thank you to Mr. & Mrs. Clovis and Christine, Natalie, Giselle, Susan and Sharon and everyone else from all the reception/restaurant staff to the gardeners and cleaners and Linda in the herb garden. We loved it

This is the first time my friends and I stayed at Kariwak and I must say it was value for money.
The service: wonderful, warm, helpful staff and well organized systems for meals.
The meals: some of the best food I ate whilst in Tobago. You must try their breakfast: the homemade cocoa, yoghurt and guava jam are to die for! Their meals are fresh and wholesome- made with products grown onsite and sourced from locals.Everything we had was delicious.
The rooms: clean and well-kept and spacious. The beds are guaranteed to give you a good night's rest.
The facilities: well kept and maintained. The pool, jacuzzi are great and the added bonus of hammocks to relax after a long day are always welcome.
Their beautiful grounds are the best thing for a morning walk. I also appreciate the fact that they truly want you to relax- there are no TVs in the room - but one in the library and there is wireless access in the lounge.
Best of all, they are ideally located close to the beach, stores, ATMs, and other great eateries if you don't feel like eating inhouse all the time.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Another relaxing and enjoyable stay! After a disastrous stay at another hotel, we were so refreshed by the excellent service and ambiance of Kariwak...The flexibility of the staff and their determination to go beyond the call of duty was heart warming. The restaurant was excellent and the rooms impeccable. It is totally conducive to a relaxing getaway. Thanks for a wonderful honeymoon! We will definitely come again!

After extremely careful selection, kariwak Village was selected for our honeymoon stay. We were so sceptical and even a little fearful of being disappointed since our package was a bit pricey... after all, you only have one honeymoon! But our fears were soon calmed mere minutes after we arrived at the airport. We called the hotel for transportation (which was part of our package) and Frank arrived very shortly after. The two minute drive to Kariwak was quite pleasant as Frank ensured our comfort and even engaged in friendly chit chat. When we were checked in and taken to our room, we were amazed (and still are) at the layout of the village. It truly is a village in every sense of the word and the housekeeping and maintenance further elevates their already high standards. However, the birds, garden, pool, jacuzzi, restaurant and every part of the hotel for that matter were not as advertised... It was even better!!! Even the best advertisements cannot capture the uniqueness and serenity and originality that Kariwak offers. Sharon was the person who we dealt with most of the time and she was indeed a blessing. She was very kind, patient and accommodating and these qualities were very much appreciated. Kariwak definitely has a gem on their hands... This is not to say that the other staff were lacking though... All staff at Kaiwak that we came into contact with were pleasant, helpful and genuinely friendly and willing to help in whatever way they could! The food was also impecable! Being picky eaters, the food at the restaurant was probably the best we ever had (after my mom's of course)... The dishes were unique and deliciously nutritious and were therefore thoroughly enjoyed, so again, compliments to the chef!!! Generally, our stay was close to perfection and so, was well worth the price. We will be back as often as we can since there is no sense in looking around when you find something that good! To the management and staff at Kariwak Village, thank you for a wonderful stay and please, keep up the excellent work!!!!!
