Alibaba's Sea Breeze - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

Phil Walker from U.K. visited in January 2008 and awarded  Five out of Five

We booked these apartments on the basis of the many good reviews they've got. We wern't to be disappointed :)

On our arrival, after being driven by one of Brian's drivers, Mendalez, we met Steff who showed us eveything we needed to know.

What can you say about the location? What a fantastic view of the bay. The sound of the sea every morning, with the tweeting of the birds, truly heaven :D

The apartment (Turtle) had everthing we required, big bed with Mosquito net, cooker, fridge, crockery, pans, fans etc.. Also a decent shower. You've all the basics you need. Speaking to Brian, he says hopefully sometime this year, there will be some improvments to the apartments, in the form of larger fridges etc.. (the three smaller apartments having only a small freezer up top which can be frustrating when you want loads of ice!) There may be further decking out from the verandas giving more space.

Even if there were no improvements we would highly recommend Alibabas Seabreeze. Whilst we were in Castara we looked at other accommodation and we felt we had the best place there :)

We'll be in Castara soon and will want to stay at Alibabas again, and we know we'll have to book early because everybody wants in!

So to Steff and Brian, thanks for a great stay and keep limin

We stayed at Alibaba's end Jan 2008. Agree with all the positive comments from other reviewers. Disagree with the negatives, although accept that the bug count may be high later in the year, we never saw one.

We've stayed in a large number of places over the years, including four other caribbean islands, We have always looked for somewhere different to visit. Not anymore!

We're returning to Alibaba's in Jan 2009 for two weeks, as we think Tobago, Castara and Alibaba's the ultimate destination. Enough said!

Jack & Linda.

Location/View fantastic. BUT... This did not feel like value for money...I'm easy going and by no means a cleaning freak I have stayed in many places in Tobago but these apartments are in desperate need of a good clean. The kitchen and bathroom felt unhygenic and downright dirty... the bedroom thick with cobwebs... No good vibes from the owners got the impression they've grown tired of the business!... Another point if you're looking for privacy , look elsewhere! the neighbours will hear you & you them.

We were quite pleased with our stay at Ali Baba Sea Breeze. Brian and Steph made us feel welcomed and well cared for. Our accommodations were comfortable and clean. We will definitely return to the Sea Breeze. Dianne and Tim Kelley

First of all, my previous puny review does not do this place justice so I am going to try again. Imagine waking each morning in a suite called the MotMot and not even wondering once what a MotMot is.... then one day, whilst eating breakfast that had been cooked in a kitchen where one can enjoy the Caribbean's Heavenly bay, I see a beautiful bird near the balcony. We soon discovered from pictures in the suite and birdwatching books from Brian and Stephanie's extensive book collection, that this vibrantly feathered gem was indeed a Mot Mot.

Brian, though busy on his boat (as most have noted) was indeed a truely fabulous host, giving us 4 eggs one day when we found ourselves low on provisions.

Stephanie has a great wealth of knowledge about the island, restaurants, where to go, what to do, and let us borrow her cell phone to extend our car rental.

The restaurants serve local interesting fare. Though we always made breakfast in the room, we particularly enjoyed ALL of the restaurants at least twice, with the exception of Sandcastles.

We took a Nature Boys boat tour one day from Castara to the southern tip of Tobago but our favorite times were probably the ones spent eating breakfast on the balcony of the MotMot watching the village awake from slumber, watching the sun rise and set.

Castara is, quite simply, an unspoiled paradise and I hope to return as soon as I can!
