My husband and I just returned from a 3 night stay during a birding tour. The eco-lodge is beautiful, welcoming and has a magical quality about it. Much of the lodge is open to the outdoors, which is stunningly beautiful and private. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly, and the owner Regina very welcoming. The lodge is small...

Our Rough Guide to Tobago informed us about this retreat. We also received a recommendation from friends, and discovered the favourable reviews on TA. We were not disappointed. Taking advice we made reservations with the owner, Regina, a charming person who met us on arrival. After a short walk checking out some of the rich bird life nearby, and then... More

We spent three nights here as part of a birding expedition and we could have stayed much longer! For birders, this lodge is amazing. Our hostess Regina is a marvelous cook and we wanted for nothing. The service was wonderful and the local guide Desmond knows every inch of the area.. To wake up to parrots and honeycreepers right outside... More

We had visited the lodge for dinner last year as guests of our Tobago friend and host , and were so smitten with the place that we decided to return to the Cuffie River Nature Retreat during our recent sojourn in Tobago, for a guided hike through the old plantation site, followed by lunch at the lodge. Although we called... More

Kathy & I spent four wonderful nights at this delightful location. We arrived late; as we drove up the driveway we had to stop to prevent running over several Nightjars! What a birder's paradise. Our gracious host Regina had a gourmet meal waiting for us at 9:00 pm! Regina's guide Desmond took us on an up-the-mountain hike - lots of... More

Cuffie River is a very clean and comfortable place to stay - which it should be for the price (~£300 / day) It has an excellent swimming pool and lots of hummingbird feeders. The food is varied and based on local cuisine. Staff are very friendly. Our problem was the location - it is isolated, amidst mountainous terrain in the... More

We have just returned from a wonderful 6 night stay at this lodge and feel that we have discovered paradise. If the sea, plenty of drink and entertainment are on your wish list then this Lodge is not for you but if quiet, peaceful surroundings and plenty of bird life is what you want then visit Cuffie River.

After a busy week in Trinidad we chose to stay for six nights in Tobago. We did not want the beach but wanted somewhere to continue seeing exceptionally beautiful birds and enjoy some peace and quiet. Well, Cuffie offers this in Spades. Absolute isolation, the only sound you will hear is the birds and the overall experience of very healthy... More

I should qualify the title to this review. This is a perfect location for a serene getaway. However, each morning you will awaken to the sound of the birds starting their day which actually was a treat. The Orange-winged Parrots and Rufous-vented Chachalacas with their raucous chatter will make you aware of their presence. Alarm clock not needed. It's part... More

We stayed here two nights on our Trinidad and Tobago birding trip. Very lush grounds. Not a lot of bird species on site or in the immediate area, but still found some nice ones including numerous hummingbirds (only 4 or 5 species), blue capped Motmots, orange wing parrots, red legged honey creepers, and a Potoo (up close every night). There... More
