The location of Angel Retreat couldn't be better - right on Little Bay and you can literally be snorkeling on the reef in under five minutes! One of the only places in Castara with a pool which was a big plus. The outdoor space was also amazing - we spent most of our time on he balcony, partially because there were some plumbing issues and the bathroom and main bedroom smelled a little during most of our stay. Also, be prepared for there to possibly be no water at night, for showers, teeth brushing, toilet flushing, and accommodations that are much closer to rustic than we had imagined when booking...
Linda was very helpful with taxis and tours - make sure to go out with Ali Baba and enjoy several sunsets at the Boathouse!
Really nice apartment. I stayed 3 nights .
I would add two things to this apartments:
1) A broom, so customers can sweep the sand.
2) Would make fix shower draining in apartment 1, it is not working well.
Thank you for the nice stay. Your apartment keepers are friendly and helpful.
10 out of 10. Couldn`t be anything less. Unbeatable location, attentive staff, spacious well appointed units, sprung mattresses, patio-balconies, pool and breakfast bar. On top of the beach and within an easy walking distance of a number of reasonable eating spots. Ideal for a quiet re-charge of the batteries or for a stress-free family-oriented holiday far removed from resort hotels, beach vendors and glass bottom boats. Exceptional value for money. Highly recommended.
Stayed here for 2 weeks in April very friendly and helpful and stayed on top floor which has a great view, rooms were very spacious especially the bathroom...right on the beach ...definitely stay again
Just lovely, great staff, so helpful and friendly. The balcony of the room was just wonderful, large, extremely comfy with lovely view. Everything you could need in kitchen area with good sized fridge freezer. Not a 'posh' place but comfortable and clean.
Possibly not a good spot for travellers with mobility issues.
Bar/restaurant next to the Angel Retreat, fine for a very decent meal and drinks!
I stayed at Angel Retreat during December 2015 and a had wonderful, relaxing time. The balconies attached to every room provide a breath taking view of the ocean (especially at sunset), the soothing sounds of the waves, and a soft ocean breeze. My mornings consisted of yoga classes with Linda, an excellent and vibrant certified yoga instructor. Linda is also the hotel's manager and is extremely kind and helpful, as is Dexter, the owner of the hotel. Together the two made my trip to Tobago even better. My days were filled trips around the island to various beaches, snorkeling spots, and waterfalls, all of which were within an hour drive away. There is an excellent snorkeling spot, delicious restaurants, and markets all within a ten minute walk of the hotel. I would highly recommend Angel Retreat to all my friends. And while you are there, I recommend eating at Cascreole Restaurant for excellent local dishes.
The apartment was everything we needed and was positioned perfectly to explore the island from end to end. The kitchen was perfect and allowed us to have our own groceries to make meals. Castara is a great little village and is effectively an affordable all inclusive resort with no need to leave. A/C worked well and the apartment had plenty of space to spread out. A coffee maker would be the only addition to make the place better but instant coffee did the trick. Highly recommend these apartments and will stay again if I return to Castara.
