Island Vibe Jeffrey's Bay is place to meet friends, have fun and enjoy the beach. Breakfast and dinner are paid by guest. The pizza is delicious and has diferents brands of beers. Bathrooms are clean.

Really good place to have a party. Awesome beerpong table with nice house-rules. It's relaxing enough if you ask for the quiet side, otherwise a bit too rumourus. Very good surfspot. Nice surf shops in town. Also very nice experience to visit the township, seriously recomendable.

We booked an dorm room, but received an upgrade to one of the private rooms in the beachhouse! Nice room, great view over the sea! The bar is a good place to meet up with others and have some foods and drinks in the evening!

With kitchens just outside the back door and the bar 20 yards from your room, you get up, surf until the sun goes down, then you party. I spent 2 weeks there and wished i could have stayed for longer. The bar tenders John and Felix make the place and couldn't imagine having so much fun without them. Everybody was...

We were here for 2 nights on our road trip, from the reviews I was expecting a slightly better standard. We stayed in a 6 bed en suite dorm, but it was in a separate block to the main building (down some stairs), I'm not sure if that's where all the dorms are? I found the room rather cramped and...

We met several nice people and staff and enjoyed the overall vibe! J-bay is a great place and I only wish we had more time. It felt very safe and the access to the beach couldn't be better. We hope to come back in the future
