We stayed at Sandcastles 9 days in August 2006, where we rent the whole 2-Bedroom Apartment on the upper floor. It was very clean, and we had a marvellous view, and even from the bed we could watch the sky with the stars and fireflies. On the backside of the apartment we had our own garden, ‘next door’ to the rainforest. For those who are bird lovers there are plenty of beautiful birds to watch from the verandas.
And the beautiful Castara beach was only a 5 minutes walk from Sandcastles.

The hosts Adam and Ria were nice and warm people and took so good care of us, they were always there for us when we needed help. We did also have the pleasure to play with their lovely little daughter Elisabeth. As we are dog-lowers it was an extra bonus with the three nice dogs Big Boy, Xina and Marbles, beside that it made us feel safe living at Sandcastles.

The flat was self-catering, but you could also order dinner in Adams small restaurant, and so we did some times. The Shrimps and the Tenderloin was marvellous, but the Pumpkin soup was our favourite. Together with a good bottle of wine it was a relaxed and homely atmosphere sitting dining at the terrace, and talking with Adam and Ria. We felt like having our own home, and were sad to leave the place and our friends Adam and Ria. We surely want to go back again.

We rent a car which made it easy to se other parts of the island. Tobago is so green and beautiful, and the people are very friendly.

We highly recommend Sandcastles!
Jytte and Roger

Hello Jytte & Roger,
We're returning to Castara this winter & are considering eating at Adam's restaurant. What is the cost in $TT's? Is there a choice of entrees? Any information you can give would be helpful.

Yours,
Joanne

Joanne,Adam usually asks you what you would like(you have to give notice)or he will have a set menu.As he is a small restaurant he cannot(and should not) have to big a selection.I believe that a three course meal costs about $TT150!Extra for wines and drinks,of course.He also does a pick-up and return service.
