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 The grounds and public areas are well maintained however the rooms are outdated with old -fashioned furnishings.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

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
