The resort and facility are world class great outdoor activity and great atmosphere however the service is pathetic. Firstly there is no manager on duty to raise your issues with the staff are disappointing rude and unfriendly. The housekeeping are inconsistent tea and coffee is not replenished, soap and shampoo is not replaced daily some evening you will find you... More

For the price per night during the holiday season, you would expect better facilities. Although the room itself was clean, the toilet smelled of urine. The bed was really bad. It was curved (over used), very hard (Springs over used) and pillows were in bad shape. The cleaning service isn't the greatest. Only the bare essentials were taken care off,... More

Wish we could have stayed longer. A Hidden gem on the Wild coast. Beautiful setting with comfortable rooms and great waterpark. Here is something for the whole family. Gholf, movies ( not new releases though) , casino, beautiful pool and waterpark. Breakfast was included and offered a wide variety. Just one suggestion is that the beds need a bit of... More

Reception is quick and efficient with the same décor and ambiance that I remember seeing as a child. Porters are quite helpful and always willing to lend a helping hand. The lady at the pool towel counter is a chirpy pleasant addition to their staff. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Bit of a walk to get there (1st floor)... More

My wife and I decided to take a short break and selected the Wild Coast Sun as we had stayed there some years ago and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. However things had changed considerably since our last visit. The rooms had been revamped and were very well appointed and the surrounding gardens were still well maintained. We decided to eat at...

From the moment you enter it is clear that this is a well run establishment! Reception staff and porters efficient and freindly! Hotel generally appears to have been upgraded and rooms are large and airy! Golf course is in superb condition! Must be one of the finest golf courses on offer! Sadly we were part of a large conference and... More

Beautiful entrance, friendly staff, hotel and room smells of smoke. When I ordered my first drink I was told that I have no credit. A call to reception sorted that. The dinner in Squires was superb, yet my bill included wine I never had. Breakfast is ok. The outside bar at the pool opens only on a weekend. No bottled... More

It's been years since I had stayed at the Wild Coast Sun hotel. Not much has changed but the feeling of a getaway from reality is still there. The hotel staff are friendly, they put us in a room at the end of the hotel which meant a long walk to the room. The room was big and spacious with... More

My family and I went for a weekend away. We booked a sea facing room. The new decor is fabulous. We have visted the Wild Coast Sun over the past 25 years and we were most pleased with the new decor. The staff were friendly and the food was scrumptious. Well done to the Sun International Team.
