Great location, clean and beautiful rooms. Friendly service and great food! You will not regret staying here. Its a little out of town but the bus system becomes a high light of your trip

We stayed in an overwater bungalow and it was perfect. Very relaxing! The room is enormous and with the extension onto the balcony it gives the feeling of going forever! Yes, some of the fittings in the room are getting a little tired and it is not the 5* property that you can stay in anywhere in the world but... More

My significant other and I stayed in an over-the-lagoon bungalow. Given that we were there on a package, we didn't expect the world, but found that the billing as a 'resort' is stretching the description a bit far. So much for the kayaks (1 double, 1 single only for all guests with paddles that were broken and close to useless)... More

Sunset Bungalows is the best Resort to stay in if you want peace and quiet. The staff are the best and the most friendliest we have come accross. Will do anything for you. The best place to destress.

Having already spent over a week in Vanuatu in another location around Port Vila and then in very basic accommodation at Tanna Island, we were a little disappointed with Sunset Bungalows. Not even considering the 2 nights I had cold showers (which I had forgotten about until I read another review), the welcoming family atmosphere we were looking forward to... More

After reading all the good reviews here I was looking forward to our stay at sunset bungalows! Unfortunately it didn't live up to the reviews. We arrived very late and just wanted a shower and to go to bed but there was no hot water, this wasn't fixed until mid-morning the next day! Although the room looked beautiful, the bed... More

Have just returned from 4 lovely days here. We booked 2 bungalows with our adult children. Arrived at 11pm with the security staff letting us into our rooms. They were great showing us the spectacular lagoon view and the air con ect. The breakfast was included in our rate and the omelets and smoothies were good. The bungalows were clean... More

Amazing views, great food, friendly People and most importantly fantastic rooms! It's out of town but that's perfect if you are looking to get away from the hussle and bussle which is Port Vila!

We really enjoyed Sunset Bungalows. The balcony over the water was beautiful, and the food and service were beautiful. It is not a luxury hotel, but it has everything you need and it is a very sweet experience.

We were disappointed after reading such good reviews.The room was nice and the bed was comfortable but Ants everywhere and a bathroom that was in need of a revamp, there is a need to do some maintance almost everywhere. The kitchen was very ill equiped without a decent knife. We felt as if everything was being done on the cheap.... More
