Wow! Absolutely loved this place.

Stephanie gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived and showed us our room and all the amenities. We were in the 'Iguana' room, which was very apt as there is a huge iguana which lives in the trees outside, which was very entertaining!

The apartment has a shower room (great shower! And lots of storage space for your toiletries), a sleeping area (very comfy bed with a mosquito net and a big wardrobe/storage area), a kitchen, (with a cooker, fridge, sink and plenty of crockery, cutlery and utensils), and then the balcony - fabulous! It looks out right onto the beach/reef and was just amazing - we saw a big spotted stingray one morning and fish and eels in the reef - as well as all the birds flying round. The little washing line to hang swimming costumes out to dry was a nice touch!

The beach is literally a minute's walk from the apartment and we had a great time swimming in the bay cooling off from the heat and snorkelling. There's a great bar/restaurant on the beach which is run by Steph's sister-in-law, Sharon - be sure to visit!

There are also other restaurants in Castara, though with most Tobago establishments opening times are a little haphazard! Also plenty of mini-marts to stock up on items to cook back at base. The fruit shop at the top of hill when you drive down to Alibaba's is particularly good.

We can't recommend this place enough - and will definitely return!

How can one write a review on what must be called pure paradise! Our stay at Alibaba Sea Breeze in the little sleepy fishing village of Castara was nothing less than magical!

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by Stephanie and Brian (Alibaba) Our apartment was spotlessly clean with a well equipped kitchen, a huge and very comfortable bed and a bathroom boasting a large shower with lots of hot and cold water!

As we walked to our private balcony we could hear the waves gently breaking on the shore right below! Little did we know what a fantastic view was about to greet us! A near perfect 'horseshoe' shaped bay with turquoise clear water dotted with small fishing boats, surrounded by tropical forests and hills!

Each morning as we sat out on our balcony having coffee/tea, we would watch the early morning activities of the local community and wild life. By 6.30am the commercial fishermen had already left in their small boats for the day. Other fishing boats trolled the bay fishing for family and friends! Bird life had already started their morning chorus while the magnificent Mot Mot bird sat regally on a nearby tree branch and Frigate birds soar high over the bay in the sky. The many shades of the turquoise blue sea sparkle in the early morning with beautiful Sting Rays and Spotted Eagle Rays swimming right into the shore nearly every day! The tranquility of this scene repeated day after day!

The beach was just a few steps from our apartment and throughout our stay had only a few other people bathing on it! We were able to snorkel right from the beach seeing countless shoals of incredibly colored tropical fish!

We were so happy with Alibaba's Sea Breeze that we were able to extend our two week stay by a few extra days and have vowed that next time (and there will be a next time) we will stay for at least a month!

Thank you Stephanie and Brian and the community of Castara for helping to make this one of the most wonderful holidays we have ever had!

Hi everyone - I spent 3 weeks in Castara at Ali Baba's in april - may it was fantastic . For me AliBaba's is the best !! Tucked away at the far end of Heavenly Bay it is very quiet but steps to the beach & great snorkeling [also the Boathouse Rest. for a cold beverage ]. Great views from your porch where you can see wildlife & the goings on in the bay.Bryan & Stephanie are great hosts and seem to attract a very nice kind of customer to be your neighbor while your there .The rooms are very nice with everything you need for a truly great vacation. - The very best of everything for Bryan and family and Castara.

My wife and I returned for a second time to Alibaba's Sea Breeze this April - this time for a week long stay. As on our first visit we were completely beguiled by the location of these apartments. They are not for those seeking every luxury but,if you want affordable comfort, a laid back atmosphere with helpful,genial hosts, in a beautiful location you cannot go far wrong. The low key ambience of these apartments make for a very relaxing time. To be able to pop down to the beach directly below the apartment for an early morning swim is our idea of heaven - and the snorkelling is wonderful. The location is great for visiting unspoilt bays nearby and wonderful walks in the rainforest are within easy reach.

Tobago is not for those seeking late night entertainment but the eating out experiences are getting gradually better. Castara, being centrally situated on Tobago is perfect for exploring the rest of the Island, or just to lay back and relax.
