We often stay at The Wild Coast Sun and always ask for a room with a sea view. To me to see the sun rising over the sea is magical. There is horse-riding on the beach. The buffet breakfast is excellent and even if you are a vegetarian you will find lots to enjoy. The dinners are also buffet and... More

We stayed for a couple of days in March. All in all we were very happy with the service and the room. The buffet breakfast was delicious and the fact that its right on the beach front is also a plus. Very friendly and efficient service. Lovely family getaway

We spent the day at this lovely hotel/resort. From the moment we entered the gates, you get this "I feel good" feeling, seeing the immaculate kept grounds and gardens. Also, there is good security in place from the gates, to the parking and the hotel. The casino is very active, with help readily available should you have any hiccups with... More

Most of the Wild Coast hotels are real family run, personal service, small resort type hotels with not too many fancy bells and whistles. The Wild Coast Sun was totally the opposite. It was so much bigger than I expected and much different from the other places I stayed while exploring the Wild Coast. There was nothing wrong with my... More

The facility shows signs of significant underinvestment in the recent past, though retains some of the charm which made it such an attraction in the 80's and 90's. The hotel has older rooms, extremely worn out carpets and average food and beverage services. Lovely location with an extremely pretty coastline.

First and last experience there. Beautiful Horse riding, water slides, restaurants, beach facilities but service is non-existent! Most of the staff don't know how to treat clients - especially 4 nights staying paying family clients with kids. If a client pays more than R2000 a night for a room, there's a certain level of service that is expected. I don't... More

I went to the wild coast sun as part of a business conference recently and was quite amazed at the beautiful setting and sheer size of the hotel. I was fortunate to get a ground floor ocean facing room and I would strongly recommend them as they open out onto the lawns thus giving you a sense of space which... More

The place was ok. When we asked the restaurant staff about certain things such as where is a certain activity, they just never knew anything. They should be aware of whats going on at their workplace. They need to put in new carpets as well! Same carpets for decades Place was a but boring overall not much to do.

In general, the resort has great facilities for adults and kids, but unfortunately the staff were not friendly nor well trained especially the guy who is working at Lagoon bar (Bongani) The resort was overcrowded.

My family visited the Wild Coast Sun 2 years ago and the experience is one to be repeated. There is amble entertainment and relaxation for young children, teenagers and adults. The natural beach is just a few meters from the hotel making for excellent walks and quiet time. The pool and deck area is lavish, wide open spaces indoor and... More
