Alibaba's Sea Breeze - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

Jan Schlaeger from Germany visited in March 2006 and awarded  Five out of Five

We have been at Alibaba`s Sea Breeze for our second time (last march and now) and definately not the last time! In fact we are sitting in an internetcafe in Scarborough and are sad that we have to leave on sunday.

Since last year they improved the apartments again. In addition to the already great equipement we rememberd from last year, we found a well stocked bookcase in the hallway, umbrellas in the room, hanging seats on the balconies and beautiful bamboo four posters with mosquito netting, although we did not need that!

We are looking forward to see how next year Alibaba & Stephanie will be living in their apartment on top of the now existing building. They have been great hosts as usual.

Although a lot of these reports seem german we met a nice mix of nationalities (british, norwegian, swiss, italian and american).

We met a lot of local friends from last year and felt very safe at all times.

The shops in the village are getting more reliabel and better stocked every year. Especially Ralph`s shop (DJ) has great choice and the service is outstanding.

Castara is the perfect location to base your holiday and explore Tobago on tours (for example Alibaba Tours)or with a rentalcar.

See you their next time. (later, later)

Guest Report   

Zoe S from U.K. visited in February 2006 and awarded  Five out of Five

We stayed in Alibaba's Sea Breeze for 5 mights in early Feb 2006. We have visited Castara before, but wanted something closer to the beach- and boy, did we get it (overhanging Heavenly Bay, we were about 15m from the sea!) - and so much more.

I loved Stingray. The cleanliness and quality of the apartment was the best I have stayed in in Tobago. We travel around staying in small guesthouses, not the big hotels, and this is a real gem of it's kind. The kingsized bed is fabulous (complete with mossie net), and the apartment is really well equipped, with thoughtful extras like candles, matches etc. The decor is great, with pictures etc on the walls, and the bathroom mirror is sculpted with seashells. This artistic quality extends to the corridor where pipes are magically transformed into palm trees, and Steph has handmade the wooden door plaques. There are books and games available, and Steph and Brian were so incredibly helpful and thorough (laundry done for 30TT- fantastic!). There are also designated parking spaces available just down from the apartments, behind the BoatHouse Restaurant.

Best of all though, is the ornate wooden balcony, and fabulous hammock/swing chair, from which you can dangle and soak in the incredible view of Castara Bay (invariably with a Carib or a Rum Punch, depending on the time of day). I really don't think there can be anywhere better than this!

Mot mots and all number of colourful bird and lizard life visit the trees in front of the balcony, and a pinch of brown sugar in the bird feeder bring the bananaquits within reach!

Our next accommodation fell through whilst we were in Castara, but we were fortunate that we could extend or stay by two days- I don't think there is anywhere in Tobago I would rather have been. My only regret is that the unseasonably rough seas meant we couldn't do a boat tour with Brian. Maybe next time!!

Highly recommended. Thanks very much to the Alibabas!

Hi all,

I did not stay at the AliBabas See Breeze by myself but my friends did, when the came to Tobago their first time and I visited them many times there. The rooms are clean and proper and with a great view to the beach. In the night you can hear the waves to bring you to sleep easily. The kitchen is very well equiped and the bathroom is just "WOW" !!! The service is perfect and Ali and Steph are around whenever you need something (like tabletts against see sickness - thanks a lot Steph!)

Me and my friends visited other guesthouses around Castara and had the chance to compare but in the end they were very happy to stay at AliBabas See Breeze and surely will come back.

A perfect place to forgett about stress and to enjoy your holidays at the real paradise.

Thanks for everything Steph and Brian and hope to see you on Easter next year.

On this way we would like to say thanks to Alibaba and Steph for there warm hospitality during our 3-weeks stays in there beach guesthouse in Castara this July.

Also our kids (4 and 9 years) enjoyed the absolutely save bathing on the beautifull beach just in front the house and playing with the local kids!

The both rooms were spacious, the kitchen very good equipped, the beds comfortable, the terrace with the sea view unbeatable and the whole house very clean. We had always the feeling that we got a great value for our money!

The charming people in the village let us feel like “locals” from the first minute! Special thanks also to Alibabas brother Branton and his stuff from the Restaurant right on the beach for there delicious food!

A must by the way is a tour with Alibaba to some lonely beaches for a unique snorkelling and beach BBQ (I catched my first fish here!) ! Don’t miss this !!!!!

I strongly can recommend Alibabas place is as the ideal and complete safe location for couples as well for family with kids. If anybody wants some more details – just mail me:

All the best and I am sure you will have also a great time in Castara,

Ayanna, Andreas, Steffi und Stevie
