“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Sunset Bungalows from around the 11th - 19th of October. We initially booked there as we loved the photos, the reviews were great and no children allowed.
The bungalows are right on the water. It was very beautiful and we could see fish and starfish from our balcony overlooking the water. Our bungalow was super comfy, with a nice king bed.
Greg and Audrey were welcoming and super helpful. Bong and Roy assisted us to book our tours with no issues.
Mary-Sita and Lily were wonderful waitresses and know how to make a mean cocktail! I especially liked the Vanuatu Me Crazy. The food was fantastic.
There are kayaks for free use and we made use of them. Lots of fun.
Sunset Bungalows is a little way out of town, but it takes 5 minutes on a bus and costs only 150VT.

Thanks guys for a wonderful stay!

5 min bus away from town, 150 Vatu per person and buses come all the time so don't worry about accomm not being central. Lovely rooms and staff are amazing. Audrey, Greg, Bong and Lily are beautiful people. Audrey helped a lot prior and during my arrival with day trip info etc. Breakfast was fine for me a but the servings were a bit too small for my partner (male), and boys/men like to eat. Dinner was not much for what we paid, I suggest you eat out. I ordered garlic prawns, rice and salad, I got 4 prawns a wee cup of rice and some grated carrot on lettuce for about $27-30 AUD, not good. Bar drinks and cocktails are great. Great decks for chilling and loads of fish and starfish to look at! Enjoy your deck over the water.

sunset bungalows are set right on the lagoon - the rooms are tropical, clean spacious. the staff are very friendly and happy to please. the restaurant is open breakfast lunch and dinner with a good variety of local food. its a short bus ride ( every 2 mins you will see a bus) to town, where you will find markets and stores. the weather is warm and sultry. for a short plane flight a great relaxing time will be had

We have just had a lovely week in a studio room. Very comfort able and the hosts do everything they can to make the trip easy and pleasant, with heaps of local knowledge and advice. Easy access to town with buses that pass the door and a small sandy area at the resort itself with a couple of loungers and easy access to the lagoon to cool off. Great watching the fish swimming below the studio patio.

Room Tip: We had an end studio room and were very content with it. As we were exploring the island during the...

Sunset Bungalows sits on a picturesque spot overlooking a lagoon with large, rustic rooms. We loved the tranquility of the place. Despite its location off the city centre, the local bus will take you almost anywhere for a mere 150VT. Although the beds were a bit uncomfortable and WiFi spotty, the warm hospitality from the restaurant staff, hosts Greg and Audrey as well as the enthusiastic help from Roy and Bong at the front desk more than made up for it.

I would like to thank Greg and Audrey for making our stay so special we really appreciated it. The rooms are spectacular and are only outdone by the views. The staff are amazing, the friendliest in Vila and the food was 5 star!!! Cant wait to come back and visit again.

Room Tip: Definitely recommend a room with a balcony over the lagoon.

This resort had comfortable accommodation units with a deck over the water. the restaurant served lovely food however we though more local flavours could be incorporated. The unit was situated under a tree which dropped pods all day and night sounding like gunshots. We told the managers who said they would address the problem 'next week' so the quiet room we asked for was not! The bed also squeaked whenever you turned over which was annoying.
Also the road is close so you do get traffic noise.The resort was not far from town via the local buses ( vans) and day trips could be arranged easily.

Room Tip: Choose a room situated away from the 2 trees which drop pods at certain time of year.
