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...

A fabulous stay for a family weekend. Our rooms were high up and at the far end of the hotel with great sea views. A bit of a walk from reception, but we preferred it as it was a quieter part of the hotel. Loved the decor - fresh and bright. We couldn't fault the housekeeping. The rooms were spotless... More

Resrvation GTDRESV / 47775863 / FSONTSWAYI Stayed over the past weekend for my wife's birthday which was horribly spoilt. Upon booking the room we requested room drop for my wife which never happened. When I asked at reception, they knew of nothing. I asked for the sleeper couch to be made, never done.

I recently spent a week at the Wild Coast Sun hotel with my family, and it was a memorable experience. Friendly staff, great food, and awesome entertainment for kids. The family rooms were spacious, and the view is amazing if you have a sea view room. The water-park although busy on the public holidays, was quiet on the other days.... More

Thought we would take the kids for a fun afternoon as it was raining. What a disappointing experience. The cinema has not been working for months apparently, there's only one restaurant to sit in and there is no security in the children's arcade, to the point where we found drugs on one of the seats. We left soon after that.... More

I stayed at the hotel in January 2014 and it was a very enjoyable stay for three nights. The rooms have been renovated and are modern and comfortable with a pleasant bathroom. The surrounding gardens and sea are gorgeous and the pool area a great place to spend the day. If you're into theme parks there is a water world... More
