My wife and I visited Castara in January this year. I last visited Tobago in 1992 and of course things have moved on considerably. This time we went for a week but as soon as we had been there a day we realised that we...More
Idyllic! Probably the most beautiful sea views I will ever see in my life. Delightful little Hummingbirds everywhere in the gardens. Comfy beds. Spacious and spotlessly clean rooms. Wonderful food. Super friendly helpful informative staff. And, we arrived the week of the Jazz Festival! What's...More
I'm sure they do - but you may have to pay for the apartment/room full price? This is a super friendly retreat, as is the village, so if you want people to chat to, I don't think Castara or Castara Retreats will disappoint... More

Late answer but Thomas Cook have started direct flights from Manchester to Tobago now- brilliant service better than BA we thought, we used it this month-. They return via Barbados so on the homebound flight because the runway isn't adequate for a transatlantic loaded take off so you fly from Tobago to Barbados, disembark with all your hand luggage as a transit passenger at Barbados airport whilst the aircraft is cleaned, then it's directly back to Manchester.
The flight outbound was about 9 hours. Inbound it's 30 mins to Barbados, wait at airport about 75 mins and flight home about 8 hours (ours was 7 hours because we had a really strong tail wind).
This service is SO much better than a trek to London with another stay in an hotel and Gatwick suffers from more delays and bad weather probs than Manchester.
NOTE: Tobago airport terminal is very basic. It didn't take long at all to get through security but once through there were NO refreshments available except a vending machine.(The kiosk was eventually opened after we'd been there an hour- this was at 3pm) but it was basic and very expensive. Next time I would check in but have a coffee, etc on the ground side and not go through security till much later.
Also I would recommend not getting any duty free Tobago airport if you're flying via Barbados have to go through security again as a transit passenger in Barbados and the 100ml liquid rule applies so they might take your drinks off you. Shop in Barbados duty free whilst you're in transit it's much better and cheaper.
