                                      This is an incredible establishment run by an amazing group of people. Fantastic location, atmosphere, value for money. I have been to Coffee Bay several times and this is definitely the best place that I have stayed in. Will most definitely be back.

                                      The facilities are being improved, but rather gradually - this needs to be accelerated if possible. One ideally needs to visit and inspect the rooms available to get the best deal as, for instance, some had electrical power in the room and others not. The town was experiencing difficulties when my wife and I visited in respect of water supplies and electricity but the staff were very helpful in making a "Plan B' available. The staff are definitely the strength of the facility at present - really friendly and helpful and the evening meals really excellent and very cheap. We were progressing...
