Excellent way to spend a week at Port Vila
Very happy with our stay at Sunset Bungalows Resort. Staff were excellent, and did their best to ensure we had a pleasurable stay. Very clean, and provided a lot of useful advice to first time visitors to Vanuatu. Would highly recommend!

First Time in Vanuate
Sunset Bungalows is great value for Money. The staff are fantastic, the rooms are big & clean but maybe ready for a refresh - linen could do with an update. Great location - easy to get around to town, beaches & tours. Food is great & cocktail hours is the best!

Happy hour at the bar as you watch the sun set :-)
Food, staff and atmosphere
The grounds and bungalows are beautifully maintained even with the obvious rebuilding that is still underway in the wake of Cyclone Pam - not all the bungalows are habitable yet. No screaming kids running around is a definite plus at this place. The fare coming out of the kitchens was delicious and there was no extra charge to have it delivered to our bungalow - even breakfast, which was included in the nightly tariff (contrary to Agoda's booking details) could be delivered to the room at no extra charge. Audrey and Greg were very warm and hospitable and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. I had requested airport transfer when I booked through Agoda which they missed as there was no one at the airport to pick us up - this however turned out to be a blessing in disguise as a private transfer which would have cost us VUV3000 ended up costing VUV400 for the two of us as we embarked on an adventure and hailed a local bus to take us from the airport to them instead.

Very relaxing
Staff, overwater bungalows, adult only
A perfect base for a short break. The managers were very helpful and engaging. We were given an extra couple of hours in our room on departure day as no one was coming straight into our room which helped us relax until the last possible minute by the pool, before we had to leave for the airport. They also arranged the airport transfers for us.

One of the best resorts we have stayed in - EVER!
Attentive staff, clean rooms, awesome hosts
We were relaxed as soon as we reached Sunset Bungalows. The room was clean and modern with beautiful, yet not overdone decore. The balcony overlooking the lagoon was a bonus too. The staff were friendly and lovely; Greg & Audrey (our hosts) were wonderful and had up-to-date information regarding tours, sites and other recommendations. It was a wonderful holiday.

Great place for some quiet time
Friendly staff, helpful and informative reception, great room over water.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were friendly and were very helpful with booking activities and information. The restaurant had good food and the service was attentive. Of special mention is the cocktails, they were brilliant ! The room was comfortable and private, one end opened completely to the balcony and was over the water on the lagoon, so you need to like the sound of lapping waves if there is a breeze. Buses to Port Vila were plentiful and cheap and were available on the road right outside the hotel.Its an "adults only" place so no kids running around, which for us was a plus.

lovely hotel but not good receiptionist
most local staff are very nice
i only stay there for 3 days, i found the most staffs in hotel are very nice, except the receiptionit. they always recommend me the most expensive tour and disable to give the correct travel information, in order to force me to choose the thing they recommended which is the most expensive one. they are cheating almost everything i asked and always try to sale me the tour and taxi that are running by someone they are familiar.
