Just returned from a 2 x Night break at Pullman Resort Bunker Bay.
We had 2 x rooms to accommodate our party , a studio lake view and 2 bed villa .
Firstly the location with private access to the beach at Bunker Bay is stunning with a nice pool overlooking the Bay.
Our two bed villa was very nice and worthy of 5 stars however i found our outside terrace somewhat disappointing in the fact it completely lacked privacy . Two walls either side ( Left and right ) form a petition between your terrace and the neighbours with open front so its inevitable you will stumble across your neighbours at some point during your stay .
The view from our terrace was also most unflattering , looking directly into the window of the villa opposite , note , there are no curtains , a big big let down considering the high standard of the villa.
In contrast the studio villa on the lake have an enclosed balcony overlooking the lake which is by far more personal and private with a nice view.
Few issues it would seem with housekeeping too , on returning to our room following breakfast on our first morning we found our Terrace door wide open , on check in at the Studio villa we discovered a used plaster on the bathroom floor.
Great wildlife close up too , on our last night we were visited regularly by a rat on our Terrace.
Be prepared for very long waits in the restaurant and bar , food is pricey and quality and service definitely does not reflect the prices being charged , some confusion with the bar service too ?
Room service is almost the same menu as the restaurant with similar prices , so not much of an alternative option.
Breakfast is average , but again with below par service , nice sat outside with great views .
Upon check out i was given a bill to pay from someone else's room .
All in all not what you would expect from a 5 star resort , certainly nothing compared to that of 5 star resorts in Asia.
A great location with nice accommodation , this resort has huge potential but is more 3 star than 5 .
