We spent a couple of days here. But this place is better suited as a stopover on the way further north instead of coming to stay here. The room was a bit run down and is in need of maintenance.

The beach isn't too far, a short walk down the dune and you're there. The beach is very nice and a good stretch. It is a bit dirty from plastics washing ashore but this is the human condition.

The staff is friendly and helpful. Although no one could precisely say where king's pool was, so after driving a while along the beach we turned back. The food is nice and the beer very cold which is excellent, as are the views from the deck.

Luckily we stayed for only one night at the lodge. Our chalet felt like a sauna - despite the fact that we kept the fan on the whole night. This impacted negatively on the sleep quality of the room. The mosquito nets are impractical. If you close the bathroom door while showering, you will be taking a sauna. The beach is a long way from the accommodation. The only saving grace of this place is the view from the terrace and the beach itself (after the long walk). Never again!!!

We spent four nights at the Sunset Beach Lodge just when they were preparing for the South African holidays. It was very nice and quiet, good food and very good service. It is probably totally different when the place is full. I think we were the only guests in a room. There was also a Dutch couple camping. Our room was very basic and unfortunately not very clean when we checked in. After a little chat with the manager two cleaners
turned up and did a very good job.The pool area is very good. I guess the room standard varies - we were in one of the cheaper rooms but everything is there (cutlery,plates,glasses etc.) and it works. There is quite a steep climb down to the beach - a good daily exercise.

We recently over Christmas went to Mozambique and made a booking at Sunset Lodge based upon the contents of their website. When we arrived at Sunset Lodge we were immediately dismayed to note that what was portrayed on the website was not what the Lodge was like in reality. There’s no security and we were warned by staff members and the lodge manager not to leave anything outside of the rooms because of theft. It’s situated effectively in the middle of a local village and the room that we stayed in was uncomfortably close, from both the noise and privacy point of view, to other local dwellings. We were constantly harassed by people, attempting to sell us their souvenirs, who came right up onto the stoop of the chalet and were incredibly persistent. Following the “hawkers” came the children begging for sweets or money. The accommodation itself was filthy (one pot in the cupboard still had whatever it was lasted use to cook in it) and nowhere near the beach. The website and pamphlet is craftily worded to create the impression that it is near the beach. The bathrooms were dirty, old and decrepit. Read the wording carefully on the website because it is in my view misleading. It is for this reason that when you pay for your accommodation (which has to be paid in full upfront I might add) they then forward you terms and conditions saying that there will be no refunds. Not only is this in contravention of the Consumer Protection Act, but clearly the lodge is aware of the fact their guests may not be happy with their accommodation. They hide behind the fact that because they give you the GPS coordinates you should actually be able to figure out exactly where it is before you go there. Refusing to give refunds for contract entered into in South Africa is a contravention of the Consumer Protection Act. Info on the lodge itself is sketchy. It appears to be owned by a Paul Bekker. I had attempted to resolve this amicably with Sunset Lodge and Mr Bekker (as my family and I departed from the lodge as soon as we could find alternative accommodation) by asking Mr Bekker to refund the balance of the 8 days that we had not stayed there. His response was that we had absconded. Now my understanding of the word absconded means “leave hurriedly and secretly with a view to escaping from custody avoiding arrest or some liability”. His use of this word is strange bearing in mind that we sat down with the managers of Sunset Lodge and explained our reasons for leaving before we did so and requested they let us know if there were any additional amounts owing, after we had already paid for the 10 nights’ accommodation in full before arriving.

Stayed here at the end of November (2013) while the rates were still in low season. We were in Casa #2 which was 2 bedrooms and bunk beds in the living area - it would easily have accommodated 6 people but we had only 3 people and paid about $30 each per night (around $180 total). We had a great ocean view from our back patio. The kitchen was fully equipped so we only used the restaurant and bar occasionally but what we ate and drank was good. There is a long, steep staircase to the beach but it was kind of a fun hike. The staff was outstanding - very helpful and cheerful.
