The customer service at the resort was exceptional.
The food was more pricey than we had expected.
The staff were amazing very professional and lovely to deal with. They made sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.
We only spent a night in Sunset Bungalows, as we were flying to another island the following day. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming on arrival and provided a welcoming drink before taking us to our room. The room was clean and comfortable with a large bed with mosquito net, and moderately sized bathroom with some included toiletries. We had dinner and included breakfast while we were here. Both of which were okay, but not outstanding. If we stayed longer, we would have ventured elsewhere for other meals. The restaurant is over water which is quite nice at sunset, particularly while enjoying a cocktail or wine. Our bungalow was described as over water but actually was not over the water; this didn't really bother us as the water was only a few feet from our doorstep (although we didn't swim in it). We had a spot to sit outside our room, but it wasn't private as anyone could walk into this area from their rooms alongside ours. The pool was great with surrounding chairs, a hammock and was clean and fun for a dip.
The air conditioning did not work well during the night and we found it was a rather sweaty and sleepless night. While the slats of the front door could be tilted to allow fresh air in, there was no fly screen so insects could come into the room quite easily. There was a mosquito net that could be thrown over the bed, but it was very hot sleeping underneath it, so this didn't assist much in helping us to sleep. We stayed in other beach bungalows while in Vanuatu that had fly screens and these were much more comfortable as the fresh ocean air could come into the room without letting in insects. The transfers were really expensive (1500 pp). As it's only 200-300 pp by bus from the airport, this seems very overpriced. We stayed at another accommodation on Efate later in the trip and ended up just getting a bus (a van marked with a B) and only paid 200 vatu pp to get to our accommodation.
Wonderful hotel with very comfortable waterfront rooms - I stayed both in a regular room and over water bungalow (which was exceptional). Great breakfast, convenient location, mosquito nets over the beds are very useful too. Wifi only works at the reception but the speed was quite good, and it's free.
I ordered a 5 am pre-paid airport transfer, and checked twice with the staff to make sure it's set for the correct time etc - it never showed up so I lost 1500VT and nearly missed my flight as there were very few buses going around at that time.
The staff were lovely, location and pool was great. Rooms were spacious and clean loved the balcony!
Very unorganised when booking tours/airport transfers. Constantly cancel even when booked days prior, and the staff don’t do much to try to help rebook which was frustrating.
