The accommodation was clean and tidy, with great views. The hotel was very quiet with a relaxing atmosphere. The quiet and soft sounds of the ocean and gentle waves lapping up against the shore could be heard from the room. The staff were friendly and nice and the management were great and always willing to help out and make our...

We loved our stay at Sunset Bungalows but the stand out part was how friendly the staff were, nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant was excellent and I was impressed with the effort made in getting my wife gluten free meals. We stayed in the bungalow 'Efate' which was lovely although there could have been brighter lighting, especially in...

My daughter and I went to Vanuatu to relax and catch up on sleep! This we accomplished at Sunset Bungalows. There is a bit of road noise in the morning, but after closing the shutters and the bathroom door we really didn't notice it after our first night. Would definitely suggest the bungalows overlooking the lagoon. It was peaceful listening...

Although there is no beach, it is not a draw back, unless sand is an absolute pre-requisite! You couldn't get get any closer to the water and the lagoon is is safe to swim in. There is a great balcony on each bungalow, where the sunsets are amazing!! Bungalows are beautifully kept and very clean. Tea and coffee making facilities...

Thoroughly enjoyed the large, clean bungalo, which had a private balcony over the lagoon. Loved to look at the colourful starfish below, and listen to the waves lap against the shore.
