Waking up to gorgeous sunrises, lounging on the patio with a good book, and riding into town for activities... that pretty much sums up our relaxing stay at Sunrise. Such a great atmosphere with friendly guests and a very accomodating host in Karen. The grounds are immaculate and quiet, with the sound of waves lulling you to sleep at night....

Don't get me wrong - my two friends and I enjoyed our time here a lot. I don't want to seem ungrateful because we really had a fun time in Raro but if you are thinking of staying here then don't have high expectations. The Sunrise Website provides false advertising and in some ways we were disappointed. The main reason...

Pains me to give a poor review, but the accommodation was not very pleasant. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. The location of our room was overlooking the lagoon which was great. Sadly though the room was not clean. The bed and pillows stunk so much I had to sleep sitting in the chair. No hot water for shower...

Sunrise beach bungalows ticks all the boxes. I was greeted with an early checkin after arriving early in the morning and upgraded to a ocean view bungalow. The property is right on the ocean and is very green and kept clean. It's about a 15 min walk into Muri centre or Muri Beach, which makes this location great. Otherwise, there...

It was 2 couples travelling together. Hotel TSFR was requested in original booking, however no one was there to collect us at 1:30am when we landed. Upon arrival at hotel, we were greeted by a confused manager, Caryn, as she cancelled the one booking without notifying us, which was booked via her website. All 4 of us were loaded into...

Thankyou for your comments. The guest arrived unexpectedly the private booking had been cancelled no deposit taken and was placed into an oceanfront bungalow as they were travelling with friends. All the issues mentioned in this review are disputed as the manager lives on site with not once the guest knocking on the door to discuss things. The property housekeeper...

Sunrise Beach Bungalows, where do I start. Firstly it was 2 separate bookings for 2 couples, one made through a booking site and the other directly on their website. We arrive at the airport after booking transfers, and no one there to collect us. Now reading the reviews, this should have been a warning sign. So its 0130am and now...

Thankyou for your comments. All airport transfers are prebooked by the property due to prior request which was done that night the same as the three rooms that had arrived on that flight and the previously. The room was ready for the one couple who had booked it. The manager made three phone calls on their 2am arrival to secure...

I am an accountant and came over feeling that I may be bored. WRONG. Sunrise is fantastic. We used the pool every day. The view. Million dollar view in anyone's language. A few minutes away from magnificent beaches. The greatest thing is that it's not too big. It's quiet, clean and relaxing. Twelve days and I am not bored. That's...
