“some gambling and such”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

we didnt stay in the hotel itself but brought the kids to the water park and me and my wife enjoyed the casino for the day. The casino doesnt have the hype of the late 80's when there were no casinos in SA, but the buildings and attractions are well maintained and the service from the staff was very pleasant. I enjoyed the "easy poker" table and my wife the array of slot machines. We were just a little disappointed that there were just one cinema showing just one film for an entire week otherwise we would have been there more frequently. The entertainment centre was alot of fun for the kids and the ten pin bowling alley had us occupied for a long time. The restaurants in the food court was clean and had friendly and fast service so overall a pleasant day out with the family.

The Wild Coast Sun is a magnificent hotel in the most beautiful setting. The natural growth of all shrubbery is outstanding. Our room was, well.............mind blowing, very spacious, very light and airy, large balcony and an absolutely breathtaking seaview. We have stayed here on 3 previous occasions but the room we had this time round was the best ever. The facilities here are brilliant, should you be one for a good massage they have it, if you enjoy 10 Pin Bowling they have it, if you enjoy being pampered you can treat yourself at the Hair Salon on site. The swimming pool area is beautiful and if you are not one to sit in the wind (should it be a windy day) there is a glass enclosed area with deck chairs a lovely splash pool and a bar (which serves the most divine cocktails!), so you can still enjoy the full ocean view and view of the outside pool and not feel as though you are indoors! There is a range of restaurants to choose from for meals and of course there is a lovely Casino right in the hotel for those who enjoy a "flutter". Very friendly staff as well. You can even watch monkeys on the grounds which keep you entertained! Overall the facilities of this hotel are magnificent and I can highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Corner suite is the best (first time we had one and it was magnificent) and although it is a longer...

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.
