JBAY has been a special place for myself and my wife for a number of years and staying at African Perfection is the icing on the cake. Absolutely perfectly positioned overlooking the best break in the world. The accommodation is excellent, the breakfasts every morning are amazing and everyone at African Perfection really makes it a memorable stay. Our two... More

Lovely place to stay. Loved that it is right on Supertubes! Great decor and room service. Really nice breakfasts and dining room. It's a pitty that you can't have lunch or dinner there, but great restaurants nearby and the surf village too. Would definitely recommend this place to surfers who want to step out right onto the beach ;)

I love African Perfection and it’s the best spot to stay for a surf trip to J-Bay. Nothing I can think of can make it better. Breakfast is fantastic, everyone is super helpful and the location is top. Surf pumped. I will be back whenever I can.

We stayed here for our honeymoon, and it was epic! Betsi at the reception was so helpful, and booked everything we needed whenever we needed it. The rooms are clean, well presented, modern and offer absolutely unhindered views of supertubes which could be seen from our bed (didn't even have to move for our morning surf check!). Big balcony to... More

I have been to Jbay 5 times and for the first time tried African Perfection with my family. The position is unmatchable; the breakfast is all the fuel you need to pull those aerials; people are smiley and accommodating; we felt safe; the receptionist even joined us for dinner and that is how they make you feel at home.

The rooms on the first floor have the best view to the supercubes! Great service, very nice breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms. Definitely a place to come back. Don't miss the restaurant recommendations of the staff, they are great as well!

My favourite guest house. They are indeed perfection. Great view of the famous supertubes, large rooms with everything you need. Delicious breakfast and very friendly staff. We have stayed there twice and will come again.

I had the best room with sea view where I could watch sunset and sunrise from my balcony. Had the best breakfast - Sufers breakfast and was full the whole day :-). They have friendly staff whose always willing to help. When in Jeffreys Bay, African Perfection is the place to be.

My fiance and I had a wonderful night stay in room 7, which has an unbeatable view over Supers! One night was too short. The great breakfast and venue make this great value for money. I would suggest though that they chose between either an honesty bar system, or manual tally up. Having said it was an honesty bar, and... More
