On landing luggage arrived fairly quickly and passport control was ok too. However as soon as you step foot outside the airport the del boy scenario starts and continues throughout the whole of your holiday until you actually set foot back on the plane. So visit Kotu knowing that you will be accompanied (literally for some poor couples) by this everywhere you go.
Weve been around a bit and expected everyone wanting money from us. We even enjoy a good haggle, but give us a break !!
Sunset Beach was fine for its rating. The furniture in our room was however full of tiny mites but you can live with that its Africa. It was nice to be on the beach.The bar,waiting and cleaning staff were nice and worked hard. The exception was the lady on the bar till who had an awful attitude and cant be good for business.
There seemed to be a number of scams going on between bumsters and certain security staff who were there to keep them away from ripping off the tourists !!
The food was typical bar meal standard so ok. Julbrew suprisingly good. The weather, plants, birds and monkeys on the balcony were excellent.
I would go back but probably only for a week and to a different Hotel and Resort.
