Cuffie River Nature Retreat - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

Thomas O. from Norway visited in February 2013 and awarded  Five out of Five

We had the pleasure of staying 7 nights at the Cuffie River Resort, and we absolutely adored it. The resort rests on the edge of the rain forest and Regina and her husband run this place with a family-like hospitality and great personality. You feel like coming home to relatives you havenīt seen for a long time!

Lying in the middle of "bird-paradise" might make you think bird watching is all this place have to offer. Yes, there are a lot of tropical birds at Cuffie River but we enjoyed hikes on beautiful forest roads, relaxing in the quiet of the resort or just to lay by the rooftop pool, overlooking the rainforest and having the occasional flocks of wild parrots flying over you. And of course we like seeing hummingbirds fly through our room during the day. This place offers so much - for couples, families or people who like to hike and see nature. A definite recommendation! You will leave more relaxed than ever.

What's extraordinary about Cuffie River is how different it is from the tourist world -- not only because of its immersion in nature, its amazing diversity of bird and plant life, and its beautifully prepared local food, but also because of the loving care that Regina provides. Cuffie River is removed, 2.5 miles down a bouncy driveway and 30 minutes from Scarborough; so unless you're content to wander the area on foot or be guided by the very genial and knowledgeable Desmond, you'd better rent a car. But the inconvenience of location is well worth it since what this nature retreat offers is genuine as well as delightful. We stayed for 7 happy days, during which time we helped at least a dozen confused hummingbirds out of our room. We got quite good at it, and the hummingbirds seemed appreciative.

Mike Bow from U.K. visited in August 2011 and awarded  Four out of Five

My wife and I stayed for one night in the off season and as it turned out were the only guests apart from Regina's (the owners) grand daughters who were on holiday from Trinidad and had been stranded on Tobago after the imposition of a State of Emergency on the islands.

We were made very welcome and shown to our spacious and naturally cooled room before being left to our own devices to explore the hotel. The swimming pool is lovely with an outstanding view of the river and rainforest, we spotted a large variety of birds we do not normally see on Tobago within the first hour of our stay. This was an advantage of staying inland rather than at the usual coastal hotels.

The food is all freshly prepared local cuisine and absolutely delicious and every meal was wonderful.

In the morning we had the pleasure of a guided walk with the fascinating Desmond, as there were just the three of us on the walk our conversation ranged from the fascinating flora and fauna, the birdlife, the global recession and the political situation. We had left England at the time of the riots in London and this was far more of a talking point then what was happening locally.

On our return we had another sumptuous meal before heading off to Lowlands. All in all a delightful stay and a place we will visit again

Well, my partner, Don and I were looking for a quiet, relaxing March break this year and found it at Cuffie River. Our suite was very comfortable with views on three sides of jungle, bamboo, birds, especially the humming birds.

Regina and her staff are great. The small resort (10 rooms) was not full, if fact we were the only guests for 2 days and the only noise we heard was the sound of birds.

When we felt like it, Desmond took us on a couple very relaxing and interesting walks. Desmond is on staff and knows a lot of stuff about Tobago. Both Yvonne and Carolyn served up some wonderful food. There was nothing we didn't like.

A totally satisfying week at Cuffie River
