Guest Report   

Neil McEachrane from Canada visited in May 2018 and awarded  Five out of Five

In early May,2018 my wife and I spent 3 days at Alibaba Sea Breeze in Castara, Tobago. We enjoyed this property immensely.

Upon arrival we were met by the owner, Stephanie, who gave us a quick tour and made us comfortable. Actually, since the unit was not rented the day prior to our arrival and day after we left Stephanie invited us to arrive early and stay late.

We loved the location of Sea Breeze, very close to the ocean and minutes walking distance to the village. These are self-contained units but we opted for the tasty foods offered at close by restaurants.

Everyone we met were so friendly and helpful. There were also events in the village each night which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Castara itself is paradise. Such a beautiful village. So peaceful, so serene. We did a lot of walking though I must admit the hills wore us out at times.

Our visit was so very relaxing. We intend to return.

The information I reviewed on this site for this Resort was extremely accurate. The Taylors were welcoming and friendly. The location is unbelievably nested on the mountain side and literally on the beach. You can hear the waves, see the stingrays and fishes in the coral reef from your balcony. The room facilities are to international standards. We had no problems. I will recommend to prospective visitors. I will return soon.

Alibaba's Sea Breeze offered a tranquil studio apartment which integrated a beautiful tropical setting. The porch is where we lived, viewing the sea below, birds and the beach activity in Castara. Friendly, kind owners who facilitated a wonderful holiday.

Just spent 3 weeks here from March 21st. to April 11th.

I knew from the amazing reaction/response to my huge amount of emailed questions during my months of research, that I had made the right choice of where to stay in Castara!

Stephanie (co-owner with Brian aka Ali Baba)not only showed extraordinary patience, but answered all my emails within hours!

So - to the accommodation:

Situated at the very end of Little ("Heavenly") Bay, Ali Baba's Sea Breeze has access to the nicer of the 2 beaches with only 15 steps (45 seconds!!) from the apartments; and the Boathuse Bar & Restaurant. We specifically asked for the 'Stingray' apartment since it has the exact same view as pictured on their website! And, truly, the colours are absolutely genuine! When the sun is at a certain angle, one can clearly see the reef from the balcony, and I swear I actually saw some fish as well!!

The apartment itself was totally adequate for the 2 of us - super-comfortable bed with a 100% effective mosquito net. I confess we only used the fridge & kettle in the kitchen so cannot comment on the cooking facilities!

And the service? Wow! is all I can say - towels, shower curtain, cleaning 3 times a week.

Stephanie & Brian were always available if required but never intruded on our privacy. If/when we return, there is no question of where we will stay!

A big, BIG thankyou to you both for making our vacation a truly unforgettable one!

Yet another great stay at Alibaba Sea Breeze. My 3rd at Sea Breeze and my 9th in Castara. From the warm welcome at the airport, to the sad goodbyes 4 weeks later every day in the middle is heaven.

The apartment is beautifully positioned to see the Sting rays and blue angel fish swimming in the sea, the red squirrel on the tree, the iguanas on the bushes and the Agouti running along the bank. Then there are the numerous birds that sit on the trees and balcony every day and the sound of the waves lapping on the beach.

Alibaba, Stephanie and Mackay are always hospitable and always do their best to ensure your stay is a comfortable as possible.

The apartment is clean and well stocked. The bed is large and very comfortable with frequent changes of linen.

Highlight of my holiday is always a trip on Alibaba’s boat. His knowledge and cooking ensure that this day trip is always interesting, fun and safe. I always see something different and learn something new.

There are several good local restaurants some with entertainment.

If your idea of a holiday is to access multi national shops and stores then Castara is not for you. The beauty of Castara is that it is a working village and all the little shops, restaurants and cafés are individually run thus giving a truly eclectic mix.
