We didn't stay though would have liked to. We took a morning birding tour, swam in the pool and enjoyed excellent lunch. This isn't just a place for birds it is a quiet retreat in the midst of Tobago. If you are not keen on beach resorts stay here and use as a base to explore Tobago. It is tranquil;... More

This beautiful property and the modern hotel located there are a great place for basing your Tobago birding adventure. The wonderful local food served is an added pleasure. Be aware that there is no air conditioning and no screens on the windows or doors. So you sleep under a fan with the French doors open to the balcony. Nature surrounds... More

If you are looking for peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings this is the perfect spot. Food all home cooked is delicious with set meal times. Hummingbirds and motmots abound along with geckos in the evenings. Swimming pool lovely. If you want to explore further afield you will need a car or to take an organised trip.

We spent 2 weeks in Guyana, Trinidad, and Tobago. Cuffie River was the last of 6 destinations, and it was a perfect way to wrap up a fascinating nature/discovery trip. Regina and her staff worked hard to create a warm, welcoming, no-stress atmosphere. The grounds are beautiful while remaining remote and natural. In the lodge and rooms they offer the... More

Peace, quiet, tranquillity - pristine rainforest views from every balcony, hummingbirds, motmots, woodpeckers, tanagers, bananaquits all busy round the feeders - sometimes the only sound was the whirring of the hummingbirds' wings! Such a wonderful setting, surrounded by forest, river down below for walks to see rufous tailed jacamars, herons and cool your feet in the clear streams! Cool off... More

This is a gem! The location, the rooms, the service, the food! We went to Cuffie for the amazing birding and were treated to amazing views of such hard to spot birds as the Potoo and Nighthawks. Not to mention the array of daytime birds. The owner has created a peaceful world of comfort in the wild. Desmond, the lodge's... More

This place does not have the huge number of birds that Asa Wright has, but I think I liked it even better. It was really quiet & peaceful. The lady that runs it is great & the food she cooks is quite good & traditional. We had a 2nd floor room that was plenty large & featured a private little... More

We really enjoyed our 3 nights at this lovely place. Food was super (thank you kitchen staff), rooms were spacious and hospitality was gracious. The Bird life was prolific, and the swimming pool very welcome. Regina was a perfect hostess. Thoroughly recommended.

Just came back a week ago from this peaceful paradise in the rainforest. What a wonderful time we had. The best place to stay in Tobago if you want to see birds all around and get away from everything. For wildlife photographers and nature lovers, it's heaven on earth. You get up with orange-winged Parrots, blue-crowned Motmots, crested Oropendulas, (we... More
