Reviewed March 26, 2012

We spent 5 nights at the hotel. Rooms are a pleasure to stay in. The bathrooms are out of this world! Check-in was quick and we got a sea facing room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Chico's restaurant had great food and excellent service. Water Park was excellent. Rides for all ages. It kept us entertained. Casino was also nice. We even had a few games of bingo on the Thursday afternoon. Check out was very quick and will go back again for sure.

Room Tip: Get a sea facing room.

A new water play park with lotsof slides has recently opened giving young people something to do, there is also two favourite take-away restaurants. The facility has a casino and has a superb golf course. Visitors to the wild coast sun should stay at least a few days to make it a complete experience. Breakfast buffet is very good but a bit crowded over weekends. There is an indoor and beautiful outdoor swimming pool overlooking the ocean 50m away. The ocean surf is usually rough (therefore called the Wild Coast). The hotel is situated in Eastern Cape province but easier accessible from Kwazulu Natal side.

good located hotel right on the beach, but then you have to specifically ask for a sea facing room. the rooms are spacious, but starting to get a bit tired. i was told they were renovating, and it couldnt come too soon.

Sun International have revamped rooms and facilities at this hotel, making it very comfortable and enhancing our stay.
The rooms are decorated to the Sun's high standards, aircon works! New linnen with good quality curtains to block out the early morning sun, if you want to sleep in for a bit.
The grounds are fantastic and the pool area is as we would imagine it to be...a little like an Island retreat (see photo)
Well worth travelling to from a far distance of Limpopo Province.

Had such a great tine at the Wild Coast. Have stayed quite a few years ago so had been quite a while since my last visit and I have to say that I was absolutely impressed with the Hotel. The rooms have been upgraded and are amazing, Although the Casino is small, I had a ball. We ate at Chico's restaurant and the food was fantastic. Cocktails by the pool: superb. Only bad thing was too many monkeys. Would definitely recommend to all!!!

My sister, husband and myself stayed here for 5 days in November 2010. The hotel itself is lovely and the rooms excellent, but unfortunately we did not have a sea facing room and were at the back of the hotel which looked out on to nothing but trees, it looked just like a jungle and beware of monkeys we left the patio doors open and one decided it liked the look of some sweets we had on the coffee table, but luckily we manages to shoo it away. The hotel itself was undergoing quite a lot of refurbishment which meant a lot of building work and noise going on in various areas and had led to the closure of quite a lot of attractions, such as the theatre, ten pin bowling and one or two of the restaurants.

The hotel is in a beautiful position right on the edge of the Indian Ocean, but there are no shark nets up so we did not dare even go for a paddle, although the swimming pool is nice but a little on the small size. We never even got into the pool for a swim because of the weather , it was lovely the day we arrived but VERY windy we got sandblasted and it was lovely the day we left but also very windy. The three days in between it rained and there is absolutely nothing to do apart from going to the Casino which was packed all day, but as we dont gamble that left reading and watching the news on TV! We found the food in the various restaurants was very good and average priced but the drinks were quite pricey. All in all we enjoyed it but I do not think we would go back.

Checking in too far to long and checking out even longer with only 1 person on duty at 8am! The rooms are in urgent need of renovation (which is currently under way). Actually the whole hotel needs renovation. It fel old and totally out dated especially the bar and its gaudy pink & blue colour scheme is awful. There was no cofee shop to sit back and relax with a cuppa jo. The redeaming factors were the beautiful beach and excellent caberet show.
