Alibaba's Sea Breeze - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

Allison&Tony from U.K. visited in April 2008 and awarded  Five out of Five

5 nights at Alibaba's was the perfect end to a great 3 week holiday for my family in Tobago and Trinidad. We stayed in the MotMot apartment - the one with the double bunk bed - and had everything we needed for comfort and relaxation. The apartment is not very big for 4, but the children loved the funny bed, and the place was very well arranged to accommodate all of our stuff. Cleanliness was fine, and we appreciated the 'mid-stay' clean and the beach towels. The view from the balcony is gorgeous - its a truly lovely place to sit and watch the bird and bat life. In about one minute you can be on the beach from the apartment - having an early morning snorkel before breakfast has to be one of the most thrilling ways to start the day ever.

Brian and Stephanie were as friendly and helpful as I can imagine any hosts being. They lent us books and snorkelling gear and gave us good advice whenever we had questions. Brian' s snorkelling tour was a highlight of our stay. The price of the tour and 2 airport transfers seemed incredibly good value.

Castara is such a great location (as long as you are not hotel people) - we liked walking to the waterfall, and buying our fish on the big beach. We loved how green and lush things seemed - it was looking a bit dryer further south in Tobago in April.

With many thanks and good wishes to Brian and Stephanie,

Allison, Tony, Tom and Matilda Ashford

It was great to stay in Alibiabas Sea Breeze. The appartements are very nice and we felt very good in beeing there. We very much appreaciated the free airport pick up. The view from the balcony is great and can not be better. We can recommend it to everybody who is looking for an appartement in Castara.

I found Alibaba's Sea Breeze excellent for safety, snorkeling, management, quiet, wild and bird life under my now and all the things that I had hoped for. As a dividend, most of my fellow guests whom I met on the beach were from Europe which for me as an American was a plus.

As a single traveler, I may chose to hang out in my active places in the future but I suspect I'll return to Alibaba's.

We were met after a horrendous XL flight at about 2 am (some 8 hours late) by Mendales one of the drivers employed by Brian.

Our first view from the balcony of "Turtle" was some 5 hours later and what a sight to behold.Wonderful views of both bays in Castara and pelicans diving for fish nearby.The apartment was comfortable and more than adequate for our needs and it was kept to a good standard of cleanliness with fresh towels/bed linen every few days.

We were visited by many birds during our 2 week stay and whilst far from being "twitchers" this was a good reason to get out of bed at a sensible time.

We found we were in bed most nights before 10 and up before 6.

The restaurants in Castara provide an adequate if somewhat limited menu (a bit like a holiday in Greece) and after 2 weeks we were running out of options.

The locals are extremely obliging and our hosts Brian and Stephanie couldn`t have been more helpful.

We arranged through them an Island tour (again with Mendales) and a rain forest hike with Jackson who was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

The Island tour was very comprehensive and we certainly came away convinced we were in the best resort and the best situation within that resort.

We have many happy memories to treasure of our trip to Tobago and may well return when we have completed our list of places still to visit.

I will never forget the views from the balcony at the Seabreeze. We found the owners to be very helpful when we needed a couple of favours. The apartments are "eccentric" according to my husband. I would have preferred that our apartment be cleaner--there was stuff splattered on the wall and lots of cobwebs on the netting on the bed. However, my hubby didn't notice these things. His only complaint was that the water pressure in the shower was not very strong. Even with the couple of disappointments, we loved our time at Ali-Baba's. And we absolutely loved Castara.
