We had the opportunity of staying at the Carribea Bay Resort over the Independence Holiday,
We enjoyed the neatly renovated rooms, the privacy, and the interiors, our stay was splendid.
The lake view sightings from the restaurant as we ate freshly prepared meals, the staff was very professional and friendly.

We look forward to our return visit to the Carribea Bay Resort.

One of the best trips we had with my family. The new setup of showers in the rooms is very good, my family really enjoyed the shower. The hotel served us with very fresh and nicely prepared food and we can not forget that at all. It is a very well looked after hotel with very hands on management team and very friendly.

Caribbean Bay almost has it all when it comes to the location and set up of the hotel. It's one of the few places you can actually relax. The views from the rooms and the dining area are just awesome. The design of the hotel is also really nice and does look like a Caribbean Resort. The staff a quite friendly and are easy to talk to. In terms of meals, we only had breakfast there and it was ok. The other meals were quite pricey so we would eat elsewhere. The one thing they need to work on are the rooms. They are really dated and need to be revamped. Besides that it's a place I would visit again.

The resort hotel has been given a new lease of life. An old abd tired product was long overdue for a change Face-lift of the rooms is well in touch with modern trends. Huge glass and aluminium showers, basins and soft furnishing complement the already fabulous water front views.

Quality enshrouds the place, from the moment, the dancing Gate-men welcome you, through the reception to the rooms. Everything is clean and the staff are super helpful and friendly. The views of the lake are breathtaking and the food is tantalizing.

Stayed here for a few days. It's a beautiful hotel with great infrastructure. I stayed in a recently refurbished room, it was big and far from the restaurant/bar areas and views of the lake. I have absolutely no complaints about the room, wifi or TV. The hotel is really big and stunning, I walked around for almost two hours just in the grounds, looking at the lake. I experienced arguably the most consistent and best service I have ever experienced in Zimbabwe, their service was top notch. The only gripe I had was when I ordered food in the restaurant for lunch, and the food took almost an hour to make and to be served. Otherwise I can't rave about this place enough.

Beautiful place and views. Super hosts with attention to detail.
We went here for our honeymoon and it was worth every penny. The food is a bit pricey but well cooked , we opted not to have breakfast but we liked to stroll around the bay at sunrise and sunset for the beautiful scenery

Situated on the banks of the Kariba dam, the hotel offers majestic views of the largest man-made reservoir. If you are lucky, you may have a free game view having breakfast or dinner as hippos are a common sight. Rooms have been renovated to give them a modern elegant look. Staff are very friendly. In terms of activities, the Kariba Dam wall is a short distance away, while boat cruises and game drives can be arranged on cite

located in a strategic position to view Lake Kariba during day and night. Allows access to the beach with ease. It gives a relaxing atmosphere especially if you want to relax and rejuvenate energy. Friendly staff are always as your service.

We were there at the end of September 2015. There were a few power cuts, but after a few minutes the generator was always turned on. This meant that food from the a la carte menu wasn't available in the restaurant but there was plenty of food from the warm buffet to satisfy us. With respect to water, we didn't drink the tap water, as there was always plenty of water provided in the rooms, and we had no problems taking showers. Hope this helps!
