It could be really nice, but 2 massive bad points : breakfast is a joke, they bring 5 pancakes every 30 mn for the whole hotel. They are not organized at all and we often have to wait for plates, cups, food as they clearly dont have enough. There is no music or very little during the day at the...

The View of the Sea and rest of the areas from the resort was so much impressed. I had a walk on the beach with my friends. It was a nice time and the food we had was very delicious. As a whole everything was OK.

I stayed in this resort with my friends. You have different types of the rooms. We stayed in a shared room of 4. It was fine for party goers. It is a quiet location, with very incredible view of mixtures of palm trees and ocean. Food was good too, and they even serve alcohol during Ramadan season :)

I stayed at the Sunset Beach Resort with friends in the busy holiday season in December 2013. The place was packed and therefore (I hope that is the reason although it shouldn't be), overall service was slow and not too friendly, the electricity was out so no aircon at night i.e. VERY sweaty, and the food in the restaurant in...

Although they renovating it was a beautiful room well situated on the beach. Rain the first day but had a party in the evening at Kwenda Rocks. The Breakfast if include should have more choices but otherwise a special place to stay. Beachboys are notorius for the area but the security is there to stop them. We had a blast...

Really enjoyed our stay here - good value, right on the beach, great food and drinks! (try the coconut mojito) Wouldn't bother forking out on a room close to the beach - its a fairly small hotel so you are never far away and if you are travelling on a budget like we were then its not worth it (save...

We moved to this hotel from Ora Resort next door where our room was awful. This hotel was fantastic in comparison. We were given a sea view room at no extra cost. The resort is really picturesque, the rooms are clean and a great size with big verandas. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Our stay...

I stayed here with a friend in Oct 2011. Upon arrival our room was well prepared and very spacious, however there was a banging noise we could hear that was quite distracting. After trying to ignore the noise we eventually went to the front desk at about 3am and the chap there helped us move into another room. This was...
