You certainly get what you pay for here. The receptionist is gorgeous, and the rooms are very clean. The continental breakfast is a nice addition, but a lot of the condiments were well past use-by date. Try not to get room 67 - it's a tiny and dark closet, but cannot fault the cleaners' attention to detail.

I stayed at The African Reef for 3 nights during the Christmas break. Overall the accommodation was almost below average. Our apartment/unit only got cleaned once out of the 3 nights and if we didn't bring our own towels and toiletry we would have had to purchase extra from the supermarket which would have been hard considering everything is closed...

First impression on arriving there is very good ,but the welcome of the staff was a little frosty on hearing we would like an en-suite camp site. We was told where to go and I must say had it not been the night of a big storm we would not have stayed there. All we could see was neglect and...

Stayed for 1 night stop over. There were 2 lounge chairs in the room both of which were grubby and uninviting to sit in. We did not use these chairs. The carpet was very badly stained. The TV sound was crackling and was hard to hear. The small fridge made a terrible noise while it was running. Outside small court...

Absolutely beautiful 1 bed apartment. Very clean, spacious new unit. When we arrived we were greeted by Susie who told us the power was out and immediately upgraded us. Fortunately power came straight back on. Room has extensive ocean views, very comfy lounge and bed. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here because they had ensuite sites available - however they are old and tired and in need of some maintenance and TLC. Filmsy shower curtain means the ensuite floods every time. Venue was rated 4* didn't see the room accommodation but won't be rushing back.

After booking in to our room which was value for money we headed to the restaurant for dinner.We found a great table with fantastic views of the ocean and looked forward to our meal.Unfortunately that was as good as it got very greasy entrees of battered scallops followed by what was supposed to be a medium cooked steak with seafood...
