Our party of 7 were actually here for a wake. We liked the fact that they don't cater for "younger people" so it was nice to think someone thought of folk who want a quiet time away. The managers and front staff where very helpful. In fact it was the local knowledge that made the stay even better on how...

Hi Quentin H Thanks for the review. Pleased that you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the food. Apologies again for the meal that was not up to standard. Unfortunately sometimes things don't go quite to plan. Yes by having a R18 age limit it does make the Resort quieter. We trust that we will see you again one day. Regards...

We had such a wonderful and amazing experience at Sunset Bungalows. The location is just breathtaking and the General Managers Greg & Audrey were very welcoming. The bungalows were beautiful inside and the staff were so friendly and humble. We loved our stay and would highly recommend Sunset Bungalows. We look forward to seeing you all again. Tiana & Angus

We stayed here for 6 days, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Good cocktail list and food at restaurant quite nice breakfast was good except muesli needed to be a lot moister. Need to book directly with sunset bungalows to get discount vouchers and snacks and not with travel agent on special package with a couple of tours.

My daughter and I recently stayed in separate bungalows at this gorgeous place and really enjoyed ourselves. The bungalows have verandahs that are private and jut out over the water so you can watch the fish and star fish as the sun goes down.
