This place was lovely in its peak (according to locals that I travelled with) but now it feels like it is being run down and lacking atmosphere, which is such a shame. This place could be amazing. Pool area is fabulous with amazing views. Staff are friendly, food and drink is lovely.

Nothing bad to say. Enjoyed my two days stand there. Only one issue needed to be improve: the light in the bathroom is very dark. So, in order to shave the face had to take very close distance to the mirror. Catch your own fish and ask chief to prepare it for you.

I arrived here around 5pm, tired from the long drive from Harare. I was in my room around 8.45pm. I have not slept. It's now 10.45pm! The aircon sounds like one is in a grinding meal, literally! It could be used to torture criminals and terrorists! It's excruciatingly painful. I called the members of staff and they did not even...

The hotel is dated (blame it on the Zimbabwe Political and Economic situation) and undergoing phased renovations. The location is really great on the banks of the Lake. Anywhere else it would have been a hive of activity. The hotel was quite empty in the last week of Feb 2017. The rooms are spacious with good clean bedding. The bed...

I will start by saying that our rooms were gifted to us through a program we were helping city council with, so I have absolutely no idea what they cost. We were in a cabana house, which was beautiful, but incredibly hot with no air. The hot water doesn't last too long, but the shower was nice. The property was...

This Hotel is located on the scenic shores of Kariba dam, which is the biggest inland dam in Zimbabwe and Zambia. The area is very scenic, usual typical Zimbabwean customer care, Good food, neat environment. For those who like sailing, you have the whole lake and a lot of tour operators for that. If you are coming from Harare, there...

There is no "good" among the ratings, and rating this place "average" would be a proper injustice. It's by and large a good place to set up for a week, but it won't be a life changing experience. The gym is woefully inadequate, the rooms are not particularly "homely", but are spacious. The culinary options are limited and it begins...

A place to stay. Have got friendly staff and helpful. Organised some of our excursions. Food good. Rooms very clean though noisy when we went because of renovations under way. Hope next time we visit nothing of the sort . But overall good. Will strongly recommend for that special occasion.

Caribbea Bay Hotel is just a beautiful place to stay in when you visit Kariba. I enjoyed my night there, with a view of Lake Kariba, the building itself is unique. The rooms are comfortable and you experience peace whilst in the room which are very clean and smart. Talk of the hotel staff, they are good people with customer...
