I think this is probably the worst place I have ever stayed in relative to price. I paid $200 per night for dinner, bed and breakfast for two. The resort is very tired and doesn't look like it's been refurbished since it opened. The pool was dirty, the paint peeling and the bedroom furniture was tatty. The restaurant was also dirty - I wasn't impressed by the standard of food hygiene and by the quality of the food on offer. It was very basic. The pool area had a very loud sound system on throughout the day, which felt like we were on some 18-30 clubbing holiday but without the clubs.
It's also worth noting that there really isn't much to do in the local area without a car. It's not located in the best part of Lake Kariba. The hotel doesn't offer much in the way of activity options - I paid for a sunset cruise which was 40 minutes late in leaving and only went to a tiny part of lake.
Caribbea Bay needs to up its game if it wants to keep charging these prices. Having said that, Lake Kariba itself is stunning scenery. But it's much better to experience it at a different resort or on a houseboat.
