Chris Annand from Canada visited in February 2018 and awarded  Five out of Five

My husband and I stayed at Lilibets in February 2018. We very much enjoyed the apartment and Castara. The apartment was basic but clean and comfortable and we really appreciated the lovely fluffy towels and cotton sheets. The large deck sheltered us from both rain and sun and the view was spectacular. The stairs to and from and the hills of Castara provided a great exercise program. The colourful birds provided a treat morning and evening on our deck. Liz and Tom the owners on premis were ever helpful. The bay below was lovely and swimming with the rays a true delight. Overall a lovely vacation we would be happy to repeat.

Lillibets was a lovely place to stay. There are some things to be aware of - may not suit everyone.

Positives: fantastic view, lovely sea breezes, balcony for sitting out surrounded by trees looking out over the bay, eating mangos and drinking carib. Clean, good shower, comfy beds, mosquito nets, good size fridge freezer, bats, birds, short trip down to beach to snorkel, good snorkelling R side of bay out round the corner, stingrays.

Things to be aware of: not all appts have a/c. I don't like it so that suits me. Quite steep steps up from the beach, in humid weather can be a bit sapping. Basic kitchen, cooker didn't work in ours, you need to be adaptable. Living space in our appt smaller than photos on website, our son's futon took up most of the space. But the balcony is the place to be anyway and is spacious. The beach restaurant closed the week before we arrived (23rd May) due to lack of tourists. There's nil else in little bay and in hot weather you can feel too lazy to walk to big bay (in truth its 5 mins away).

In conclusion it depends what you want. Castara and Tobago in general is so beautiful, you've got to take it slow and the longer you are there the easier that is. If you are on a short holiday and want more luxury/everything in tip top order, maybe go elsewhere? I could've stayed at Lillibets for weeks.

I stayed in Lillibets with my family for 4 nights in april 2017. First of all, Castara is a wonderful, very peaceful and laidback place...perfect if you wish to get away from it all, and want a focus on nature and rest. We totally loved it and will definitely come back, even though we've stayed in a handful of other locations throughout Tobago in the last 10 years.

Lillibets is situated in a very good position, very close to the smaller of the two bays. We stayed in one of four appartments in the lower half of the building, but the views were still stunning. The terrace is also well positioned and hardly receives any of the scorching Tobago sun.

The unit is complete with livingroom, kitchen, bathroom and one airconditioned bedroom. Everything works well, but we found that the place is in a bad need of updating. This goes for virtually all spaces. We are not picky and know that no top notch can and should be expected, but the place simply looked very old and worn-out. We were very disappointed upon arrival that some places in the apartment had not been cleaned. There was thick dust on the night tables, and the towels smelt so muffy that we decided to use our own. The place is also extremely sensitive to noise from the neighbours above, as there is no insulation and it feels like what happens on top almost happens in your room. It was difficult to communicate with the manager as there was no representative available during the entire visit.

Apart from these (in our view) important flaws, the space, and especially the balcony were very convenient, and made for a pleasant stay all together.

Jenny Balman from U.S.A. visited in February 2017 and awarded  Five out of Five

I stayed at Lillibets for 4 nights. The room was very comfortable and clean with a fully equipped kitchen, deck, nice shower, comfy bed and AC. I especially loved the privacy and the great views. I also highly recommend this place for birders as there are many to view! Mot Mots are a favorite. The hosts are very kind and attentive. I look forward to a return visit next year! The nice swimming beach is a very short walk near as is the village.

We couldn't believe our luck at arriving at Lillibets. Fantastic view from the balcony and hummingbirds everywhere. Tom and Liz are brilliant hosts and were available for advice and local knowledge when required. The flat we had is large and well equipped with a/c in the bedroom. The balcony overlooking the bay was where we spent most of our time - marvellous. The bed was one of the most comfortable we slept in, in 3 weeks in T&T. Castara is extremely laid back and charming . The beach is only 3 mins walk from Lillibets down steps . Wifi is available and a great local Guide lives up the hill. Excellent value for money and a sublime stay. Thank you .
