The Wild Coast Sun is one of my favorite holiday destinations. Featuring a great casino with good sevice, an arcade for kids and teens, a simple cinema, bowling alley, many eating places, and a free shuttle to a nearby waterworld. There is always something to do. The buffet breakfast at Chicos is not to be missed.

We stayed at the Wild Coast beginning of December for 4 nights. To be honest - the main reason for us going to the place was the beaches together with it's own water park. What else could we ask for our children. Definitely were not disappointed by the location. Right on the beach, no other hotel/vacation property around, meant that... More

We stayed at the Wild Coast in Dec 2015. its really a great place to stay / relax, it had much to offer for families. But was disappointed with the room service. it was pathetic and very unprofessional. It took about 45 mins to get room service.

Excellent spacious room and facilities that can accomodate family up to 6. Ideal crash point after funfilled at the resorts numerous entertainment facilities. A 1 stop place for adults and kids - 1 or 2 days stay may not be sufficient as you would want to stay for a week.

The Wild Coast Sun resort has much to offer. We went as day visitors and were once again not disappointed. 18 holes of golf was the main reason for the trip . The golf course was in particular good condition , and the greens nice and quick. It's a real great course and must be consistently rated as one of... More

Vacation with young kids did not start well. Room was not available at the stipulated 14h00 check in time only settled in after 15h30. Kids were restless. Had to push own porter trolley with my bags. Visit was okay for a first time and last time visit.

We stayed in an ocean view room. The room itself is pleasing. However, if the rooms that are garden-facing look pretty much the same then why pay that extra amount of money since one cannot really enjoy the balcony and the ocean view because of the monkeys. Whilst having our breakfast in bed and enjoying the fresh sea breeze a... More

This year we decided not to go the self catering route as we usually do as with 2 small kids it can be extremely tiring cooking and cleaning whilst trying to relax. So we decided to try the Wild Coast Sun for the first time and were not disappointed. On arrival, we were allocated a room on the 5th floor... 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
