I've been to Coff's a few times and always disappointed in the hotels until I found this one. I will stay here again and again. Such a haven once you enter the grounds, the dining veranda was gorgeous! Pools, beach, gym, spa.. (beach is a bit rocky but still and easy walk). You really don't need to leave - they have everything!

We were so disappointed in this property our room was very dirty and mouldy. I have never left any accomodation because of unhealthy conditions until this hotel. I still haven't got my money back from the hotel and I do have photo's of the mould. I would not recommend this property to anyone.

Has the potential for being an amazing destination resort for golf, private beach, pools, grounds etc but looking very tired e.g. sun loungers broken, dirty exterior to buildings, no plug in the bathroom, taps were loose, food was average. However, the staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient.
