Simple, clean, comfortable and friendly accommodation in a spectacular and quiet location in an unspoilt fishing village. No air conditioning but netted beds and ceiling fans. The property is actually almost on the beach and directly next to the reef. There is a good beach bar and restaurant next door. The proprietor and his wife could not be more accommodating... More

How can one write a review on what must be called pure paradise! Our stay at Alibaba's Sea Breeze in the little sleepy fishing village of Castara was nothing less than magical! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by Stephanie and Brian (Alibaba) Our apartment was spotlessly clean with a well equipped kitchen, a huge... More

Our third stay and our third taste of paradise - even with unusually unsettled weather. The setting: Castara - a fishing village with a purpose, its people dignified and courteous. Two bays, Big Bay a long sweep of sand from which the fishermen set out in the morning and from which the seine boat rows its wide circle before the... More

Love this place. The beach is literally to your front balcony where you can see visiting stingrays, parrot fish and blue tang fish. Some local birds visit the balcony railing to rest and gladly eat crumbs or fruit given to them. The place is very relaxing with the sound of light crashing waves and the resident seagulls. Lots of snorkeling... More

Our second visit and we still love these apartments. You just can't beat the location which is right above the beach in Little Bay Castara. We love feeding the local wildlife from the balcony and on this visit we saw numerous lizards and iguanas, a fantastic array of birds, and an agouti. There is a coral reef just outside and... More

Sitting on balcony watching pelicans dive, while rays cruised the waters below, then later watching the setting sun bathe the sand and palm trees in golden light - a really special experience. On first arrival the facilities looked a bit shabby - but we soon forgot about this. We had everything we needed and although there was no air con... More

The appartment was very well appointed and clean and in a lovely position in beautiful Castara. All very well organised and we will return next year. Steph is very helpful and organised everything very well

What more can we say. Thank you so much to Steph and Alibaba for another wonderful 2 weeks, our third stay now. The apartments have the best location in Castara, they are kept beautifully clean (where else does the shower curtain get changed 3 times a week?) and you are made to feel so completely welcomed. For the independent traveller,... More

Beautiful views with each unit pretty well hanging right over the beach with fish and rays swimming below you. Watch the fisherman leave in the morning and you can buy their catch from them when they return in the afternoon. We cooked some mahi-mahi for dinner one night and it couldn't have been better. The owners have a nice attention... More

Booked on the basis of tripadvisor reviews and certainly weren't disappointed. Booking was painless, stayed for 2 weeks (Jan/Feb 2015) and wish I was still there! There are 4 apartments situated under Alibaba's own place. I think these are identical but we had the Iguanas - basically 4 areas: good-size bathroom with shower and toilet, bedroom with huge king-size bed... More
