We had a wonderful time at Sunset Beach Lodge.  Thank you for all of your help in booking and planning our trip.

One of the waiters continuously seemed to forget our food orders or get them wrong.  Other than that, everything was wonderful and the food was delicious!

Suggestions: Waterproofing the roof of the Baracca style campsites.  I am certain that people wouldn't mind paying more to have a nice dry area in which to relax when it rains.  We put up a tarp and that worked very well for the two days that it rained while we were there.

Whilst we had a good stay I feel the camping accommodation was too expensive given that there is no hot water in the shower/ Kitchen and the site allocated to us could not accommodate both our tents (5x2.4 and 3x3). Fortunately the adjacent site was vacant and we were able to site one of the tents there. Another big negative (facilities) was the fact that the braai at our site was far too high and I had to almost braai above my head. The braai grid provided was also not sized correctly and jutted out from the fire area, making braaing even more difficult. The only real entertainment facility is a pool table.
