Excellent, amazing and fantastic! The setting with the bungalows, the pool, garden and yoga shala was beautiful. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner were superb, lots of great tasting food! The only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Highly recommend this hotel!

Kariwak Village is always my "Home Away From Home". I have always had a wonderful experience! I enjoy the rustic feel, and my connection to all the staff members speaks volume as they know me by name. No time during my many visits did feel a disconnect. I truly enjoy the authentic menu and drinks served. The homemade coconut ice-cream... More

Having read a review on TripAdvisor about the recent mother's day weekend at the Kariwak Village Hotel in Tobago and, having spent that same weekend there, I felt compelled to share my experience at the hotel. I am Trinidadian and, over the years, have stayed over a dozen times at Kariwak. I have always been impressed by the clean, well... More

I took a trip with my infant son for the Mother's Day weekend and I have to say Kariwak was awful. Awful does little in the way of describing what a nasty place this is. Their staff are absolutely rude, from the owner, Mrs. Clovis, to the bartender, Whitney, which overshadowed any positive points about my stay there. I called... More

Thank you for your comments. It is apparent that there were many misunderstandings during your stay here and we do regret that. 1. In regards to your room service sandwich order on your 2nd night, the person you spoke to was trying to explain that dinner was very busy that night and it could be awhile before anyone was free...

My husband and I spent a weekend here at the end of March 2015. The front staff seemed very busy attending to the restaurant, so they have to do alot of multi tasking. some persons were friendly and the others on the last day we spent, were not...

We booked this hotel last minute having arranged to meet my daughter and her husband coming in from Switzerland and we were arriving from a visit to Trinidad. My husband is Trinidadian and I am American, so often, we have different tolerance levels. Most of the accommodations in Tobago and Trinidad, as well, are far below my level of comfort... More

I recently spent a week at the Kariwak Hotel while my wife and daughter joined a yoga retreat. The lovely weather, warm and gracious staff and delicious food made the time pass swiftly. While they practiced their downward dog, I devoted myself to photographing hummingbirds and listening to the cries of the Chachalacas from the trees around the hotel (they... More

I've never experienced yoga but I will without a doubt do yoga when I get home! Obviously doing yoga for the first time in a gorgeous setting such as tobago under an open sided hut with an incredible instructor, beautiful surroundings and warm tobago air will be an incredible experience but this could not have been more perfect. I thoroughly... More

It is really obvious that the Kariwak hotel is a labour of love for its owners. Every detail is covered. Even though it is a 'rustic' accommodation, the food was absolutely gourmet, the pools and whirlpool beautiful, the grounds beautifully kept and the Yoga studio was fabulous! We were three people who all had massages (Thai, Hot Stone, and Swedish)... More

My wife and I went for weekend getaway. The room was quaint and comfortable and clean. The breakfast was very good. The grounds are spectacular, definitely the hotel's shining star. Dinner was sumptuous,Friday and Saturday are buffet nights. Only drawback its not on the beach, hence the four stars.
