We loved Vanuatu, the people, the vibe and we really enjoyed it at Sunset Bungalows. Staff were great, bungalows pretty good, well kept. Restaurant food was good but menu limited. Only negatives are no room WiFi (must have in 2014) and road noise at night. Definitely recommend it.

Hi Derek N Thanks for your review. It is so easy to fall in love with Vanuatu and the wonderful Ni-Van people. We value the feed back and are putting extra items on the menu. We do not have wifi in the rooms on purpose. We try to encourage our guests to have a relaxing holiday and if you do... More

Value for money. Lovely staff. We stayed in Lagoon view bungalows. Was relatively clean, with all basic amenities provided. Nothing in the bar fridge but has a good room service. No Kids allowed. 10 mins local bus ride to Vila, and that's the best way to get around! You can get a taxi to the resort from the airport and... More

Very peaceful setting on the lagoon, a little breezy while we were there. The bungalows are spacious and quiet, with great verandahs over the water. The new polythene wing break screens on the Restaurant Verandah is wonderful, made life very pleasant while eating and wining. Managers and staff are very friendly, had a great stay "TANK YOU TUMAS"
