We booked this holiday because we wanted to espace from the stress and hectic of the work and the noisy daily routine. When we arrived at coral cove cottages after a short passage via a path surrounded by peaceful palm trees and papaya trees, we instantly knew that we have found the right place for. The cottage itself was nice...

During our studies abroad at a Kenyan university we used the holiday to travel to the coast and with coral cove cottages we found a wonderful place to enjoy the peaceful beach and all the comforts of a relaxed getaway. The cottage was well equipped with everything we need and provided a lovely view down to the beach. It is...

I am a young traveller, easy going and it's rare that I am not pleased with the places I am staying. The coral Cove cottages unfortunalty was an exception to this trend. Visiting a friend in Kenya, we decided to rent a cottage for some days looking for a quiet time, just enjoying the beach,reading, etc... The place in itself...

We absolutely loved this place! Sure, it is a bit worn down, but that gives a homey feeling. I dont want or expect luxury when i travel in Africa. The place is charming, well functioning and has great staff. The fishermen and fruit sellsmen are friendly and the beach has both snorcling possibillities as well as nice waves and coral...

This place could be like paradise, if it would be not so dirty, damaged, rusty, the mattress not so worn out, the outdoor chairs not so old and damaged, mosquito nets not to small, and so on. So it's only a place you better avoid.....what a pity

we stayed for a few nights with friends in a cottage at Coral Cove and thought it was lovely. the cottage was pretty spacious and had all the facilities you'd expect from a basic self catering cottage. the bathroom was well fitted and there was hot water, if not too consistently. Bedrooms were large and clean though i would recommend...

We booked for 5 days but left after 2!. It looks wonderful. The cottage was run down, much of it was dirty and beyond repair, many fixtures broken, no fans in living area, overun with ants (we had to throw away a lot of food we had just bought). Also lizards etc., and threatened by the owners dogs that were...

I would recommend that couples looking for a romantic and peaceful stay at the ocean look elsewhere. Coral cove is too run-down and bug-infested to be relaxing. We actually shortened our stay by several days -- and we love being outdoors and camping -- because the cottage was too run-down to enjoy. Pros: 1. Tiwi beach is fantastic and our...
