this place is amazing, cabins are very basic, but pleasant, if you are just looking for a good place just by the ocean, it is in a campsite by the beach, the best location! not far from a supermarket which is very convenient too. it is the perfect place to relax, sunbath, palm treems hamocks...

Really lovely, cosy cottage with a lot of character and homey feel. Clear that a lot of love has gone into the setting up and care for the place! Cottage was about 10m from the sand, a beautiful and huge stretch of white sand, coconut palms and coral reef with a string of several discreet bungalow style beach lodges along...

As old time Kenyans, we were after an old fashioned, simple, quiet cottage on the beach. Flying into Ukunda is a dream, and the taxi arranged by Coral Cove collected us and took a swift Nakumatt visit for our provisions. The sea view cottage, set in the most beautiful gardens was positioned just as imagined, on an idyllic white quiet...

Great location on the beach, well-sized rooms, affordable, and a quirky compound filled with lots of friendly pets. My main disappointment was with cleanliness-- the bathroom was not cleaned properly before our arrival.

Great location at the end of Tiwi Beach with some fun friendly animals that come visit you at your cottage but happily go on their way if their not welcome. Some pets and some various monkeys including the almighty Colobus! The cottages are by no means new but they have everything you could want and are really comfortable. Everything you...

Very nice cottages, try to get the ones with the sea-view. Fully furnished: basics, but there's all you need for a quiet and relaxing break. Don't expect luxurious accommodation, this is ideal for young couples, families, backpapers and people who value independence and want to sleep, eat and live in a nice place just opposite a paradisiac beach! The only...

Have been staying in Coral Cove for the past 22 years and it's still my favorite place to chill while at the Kenyan coast. Having lived in Kenya for 16 years now, I am able to compare Coral Cove at Tiwi with other destinations and I keep coming back every time. It's very affordable and the cottages are basic but...

I arranged a stay here at short notice over New Year after an unexpected change of travel plans. I had stayed before in 2010, so knew roughly what to expect - rundown accommodation with an uptight German owner but a nice beach. I made booking arrangements by phone and text. The owner told me others were interested in the last...

At first I thought perhaps the owner of Coral Cove was having a bad day, or misunderstood me but seeing the other past reviews about the rude and disrespectful management my suspicions are confirmed. I've lived in East Africa for 6 years and there's still nowhere as beautiful as the Kenyan coast. Went to Tiwi for Christmas (my fiancée and...

A wonderful, calm place with lots of trees, and probably one of the most beautiful beach fronts with a cove. It is a 'place in the past' with 60's style basic accommodation but clean, comfortable, spacious and equipped with everything you need. We were welcomed with lots of flowers around the cottage for that extra little touch. I must admit...
