Staff decided the tip on some bills Parking was a mess We've done a tour with a staff's friend because the real guide wasn't available. We discovered that later - very unprofessional Couldn't close the door of the room from...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Visiting Coffee Bay there are not a lot of options. Just don't expect much. The rooms are ok but the bathrooms are not too clean. But again traveling along the wild coast of Africa you will have to rough it a bit. We enjoyed the visit to "the hole in the wall" but not...

It is a little gem. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. The meals are good and there is plenty of it. All meals are buffet style and tasty. The beach is literally a stone throw from the room. Rooms 1 to 6 are the best for their view of the sea. Will book a...

Not high class, but good, simple hotel. Very willing service and clean room/facility. Not sure if it is a truly desirable beach destination, but if you are in the area this is the place to stay. Weekends get a little "lively" outside of the property. Beware!

The rooms are filthy with dirt all along the bathroom tiles. The place is decaying and really needs maintenance. They do not listen to directions not to dry cleaning certain clothing and damaged an expensive jacket and the manager did not really care when it was brought to their attention. Worst of all there is no safe facility provided for...

The hotel had everything I wanted for my end-of-year break: remote location, comfortable accommodation, easy access right onto the beach, great views, swimming pool and three meals a day. This is not a chic establishment with gourmet dining. It's kid- and dog-friendly and we loved our walks on the beach accompanied by one or more of the hotel pooches. Meals...

Let me just start by putting it out there that I'm definitely sure that I'll be returning to this little paradise. My stay was so pleasant despite the long drive. From the moment we stepped onto the establishment the air seemed different. The staff was so helpful and friendly, from the security guard who came and helped us park to...

This magnificent hotel has everything you need for a comfortable family stay. The views are stunning and the placement is wonderful! The food is delicious and the staff are friendly and helpful. The only sugesstion I might add is that they add a wifi extender to the top rooms. Otherwise it has been a wonderful stay so far !

This is a great, if not one of the best venue's for a relaxing family holiday. The room is great, service friendly and efficient and the food (full board option) more than enough and in very good taste! This is no place to try and lose weight!! Everything is close, the pool, the beach, private and secluded. The views is...
