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.

We've been loyal patrons of the Wild Coast Sun Hotel since 2001, visiting at least twice a year. Service is impeccable, rooms are clean and spacious. The pool and the beach are easily accessible. Room-service is great and tastes good. Will continue to support this great getaway.

We recently spent 2 nights at wild coast sun. The grounds and public areas are well maintained however the rooms are outdated with old -fashioned furnishings. I expected the "refurbishment" to contain modern rooms however the floral curtains,couches and carpets give the hotel a tired and old appearance. The choice of restaurants at the resort can definitely be improved. The... More

Spend a night at the Wildcoast Sun Casino with my wife and was pleasantly surprised by the friendly welcome received at receiption and through out the complex. We had dinner at Chicos and the new menu was a pleasant change to old one and the quality of the food improved 100%. It was nice to see that the staff engaged... More

Not an ideal hotel to stay in if you're looking for some R&R. It's too big, easy to get lost around it. A popular venue for conferences so not ideal if youre looking for some quiet time. air cons in the rooms are centralised so not a nice experience if you need to control the temperature in your room. the...
