Aroha greeted us at the airport with her cheerful smile. We were pleasantly surprised to be allocated the very front beach bungalow. Fully self contained and very clean and comfortable.
The shower was great with good pressure and the bed was one of the biggest Ive slept on. Very comfortable and always gave a great nights sleep. Over head fan in the middle of the room was great on those hot tropical days. Fully functional kitchen with everything we needed. The deck out front was well used for eating meals on. Gorgeous view and very cool.
Shops within walking distance for food supplies which was good as we had to wait a day for a hire scooter from across the island. When we booked at Sunny Beach we never thought to book ahead for a scooter and being Christmas and new year holiday time of course scooters were all booked out but lovely staff at the information centre found one for us.
The beach is quite shallow and fine for keeping cool. An easy walk around the beach to a resort for a meal if you feel like treating yourself, the snorkeling is also great just outside the resort too. A great takeaway place also within easy walking distance that made Delicious pizza and pasta and asian food. Very good prices too.
We stayed 5 days but could have so very easily stayed 2 weeks at Sunny Beach Lodge.
Cant wait to go back and relax some more. A fabulous place with fabulous people.
