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 reef walking. You dont have to put up with too many tourists and you can have your own little paradise at this place for not too much money.
The restaurant next door has great food and the driver who works with coral coves is really nice and takes you wherever you want to go whenever you want to.
The monkeys are not imposing and if you close your door when you leave the veranda, they wont give you any problems.
We are going back as soon as we can!

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

Room Tip: If you don't avoid this place, take a cottage next to the beach

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 a mosquito plug to ward off the bugs.
the location is great, you can walk to the beach in less than two minutes and there are shops a short taxi ride away. you can arrange a taxi easily (the owner introduced us to the driver) and he is friendly and knowledgable and won't charge you a fortune.
the beach is magnificent, with plenty of palm tress and shade if required. the beach boys are ever present but for the most part are not too pushy if you're clear what you do or don't want.
we had breakfast at the hotel next door which is pretty convenient if you can't be bothered with sorting your own out.
overall, i would definitely recommend if you don't mind a bit of rustic and quite a few pets roaming the grounds.

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 allowed to run free (thoughtfully, the owners wrote advice in the info pack about how to approach the owners office/house when the dogs can be called off!). Front door had to be kept shut to keep monkeys out. Thus adding to the heat. One of our very few neighbours left early - claiming they had been robbed at machette point on the beach. Swimming is only possible at high tide as the tide goes out a long way over sharp coral. The linen was clean. Matresses were thin. The fridge was good (if you can stand the strange smell around the cooking area). We should have noticed that the photos on the website lacked detail.

Room Tip: Don't stay.

we enjoyed our stay at Coral cove cottages. De houses are big and clean and the staff is amazing! every day you can buy fresh fish, fruits and vegetables on your veranda! It is deffinitly not a fancy resort, but this was just the place we where looking for! for the people who are complaining. Maybe you should book a 5 star resort and not a cottage for this price! Because it was great!
