We had yet again a lovely relaxing time at Seabreeze. Right above the beach with lovely views from the balcony and excellent facilities. Watching the sunset each evening and listening to the sea, it's the perfect place to relax. Stephcwas her usual cheerful and helpful self.

The view is amazing, the accommodation was prestige and Stephanie was very accommodating with our needs. The sound of the ocean is very soothing for the soul, grab a book from the in-house library, and put your feet up and relax. I highly recommend Ali Baba’s Sea Breeze apartments for a lush tropical, piece of mind getaway stay.

We spent two nights in the stingray apartment, beautiful view and a nice & friendly property owner. There was no AC if you are expecting that but you don’t need it the sea breeZe keeps you cool. Nice place to stay in Castara and we will be returning sometime in the future.

Best location in Castara. Almost on the beach and just some steps to best beach bar & restuarant in a quite corner above the snorkeling reef. The place has charm and "german" high quality and service. No problem without AC thanks to sea-breeze and good fans. A few other restaurants around with great food. We made a full day snorkeling tour - great experience!

We stayed for 14 nights, having not been to Tobago before but having been to other West Indian Islands. Ali picked us up from the airport and we stopped at supermarket en route. The apartment is clean and well equipped. The bed was a superking and very comfortable. There is no air conditioning but we found the ceiling fans in kitchen and bedroom to be absolutely adequate. The noise of the sea lulled us to sleep. Stephanie could not have been more helpful. There was a power cut when we were there but Stephanie/Ali provided candles for us so no problem. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting a no frills, comfortable place to stay. Beautiful views from the balcony. Very near The Boathouse which we recommend for food and drink.

We had a really great first stay at Alibabas. Stephanie is an absolute delight and was extremely accommodating to our group. Alibaba was so friendly, he had a beer with us on the beach. We rented out 4 out of the 5 apartments including the beautiful secluded cottage. All the rooms were lovely, the beach was perfect, great snorkelling.. and everyone had an absolute blast. Kitchen was fully equipped and more than adequate to cook meals - we got some lionfish from a fisherman right in the bay. Hot water shower. No AC but did not get a single bite all weekend. Will be back when we go scuba diving.

This small apartment was very clean and had everything we needed, including a good-sized balcony right over the sea with a beautiful view of the two rocky coves that make up Castara and the small boats anchored in the bays. The kitchen was well-equipped with a full-sized cooker, toaster, coffee maker and huge fridge. We cooked quite a bit, shopping at D'Genius across by the other bay. Castara's restaurants and bars were just a short walk away. Each morning we awoke to hear the cockerel who seemingly lived below our apartment, but the sound of the sea lulled us back to sleep again. A beautiful motmot used to come and sit on the branch next to our balcony, whilst there were huge rays swimming in the sea. The beach just below us was good for swimming, with sunloungers for hire and natural shade when it became too hot. We spent five nights at Alibaba's and had a great time on the boat cruise.

We stayed here for two weeks and loved it! If you are looking for luxury then this isn’t it! The apartments are basic beachside apartments, but they have everything that we needed, plus the best view ever! The bed was really comfortable with mosquito nets, but as someone else mentioned, ear plugs are a good idea as the sea can be quite noisy and the cockerels are insomniacs!! But hey you’re in a little fishing village by the sea!! All the apartments have sea views. The birds come down to feed on your terrace with little encouragement, motmots, palm tanagers, grey blue tanagers, banana quits etc lovely!!Brian and Stephanie are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. They also run a tour company with trips around the island and boat trips etc. The measure is that we would definitely stay there again!

First of all,there is no denying that this rental is a perfect slice of paradise. It gives you the perfect view, literally steps away from the beach. However, the lack of maintenance is evident. One can smell the age of the apartments in the curtains, when you open the cupboards, the dead bugs and dust. I am all for rustic chic, but 'rusty' no. Keep the surroundings of the rentals clean and ensure that maintenance is upkept, ensure all amenities are functional etc. It's a beautiful location so please don't allow this gem to become rundown. It's clear we (reviewers) love it here ♡... Just a little advice. Thank you. :)

Response from alibabatobago, Inhaber at Alibaba's Sea Breeze Apartments
Responded Mar 25, 2019
Hello there Thanks for your input. We would have appreciated it even more if you had complained when you where here so we could have a) fixed the situation right away and b) figured out who did not clean properly on that occasion. We do have a very good reputation about our clensiness, we take that serious. Here comes my BUT: we are in the tropics and very close to the bush! We do fight off bugs and spiders on a daily basis. The musky smell from cupboards is a humidity problem that we can only fix by putting airconditioners in the apartments. That is not on the list for the near future. We are toying with the idea but mist our guests are not aircondition lovers and it is very hard to maintain ANYTHING so close to the sea. We apologise if your stay was less than perfect because that is what we are alway aiming for! For your future travels we urge you to talk to your hosts on the spot, so there is room for improvement right away. Every serious business owner will appreciate constructive criticism to strive for the better. Sunny greetings from Castara beach Stephanie and the team PS: it would be highly appreciated if you could send me an email with the information what room you were in and detailed descriptions of the problems so we can check up on it right away. Thank you!
