A strong performer A review of Pullman Resort Bunker Bay
I travel a lot for businss, have been on many and varied holidays, and believe myself to be a highly difficult and critical guest....so my commets should be read in that light!
We (young family - children 8 months and 2years) stayed for 7 nights at Bunker Bay resort in early January 2006. IT was our first time to MArgaret River.
From the start Bunker Bay made a favourable impression.
The Villas are near new, very well appointed and spacious. We were extremely comfortable. The photos on the resort's web site provide a good representation of our villa's interior.
While the Villas have an outside patio, the local bushland obscures any view. While some villas may have an ocean or lagoon view, I suspect most do not.
While it appears difficult to get a water view, the resort's landscaping is fantasitic and a real feature of Bunker Bay.
The pool is great and has wonderful views out to the ocean. It could have been a little warmer for my liking. There is a bar by the pool which is well attended.
The resort only has one restaurant. We ate breakfast there some mornings. The buffet breakfast was very high quality with a great selection. Young kids dine for free. I cannot comment about lunch or dinner, but do note that it is not a cheap restaurant, nor does it really cater for casual dinning (ie a sandwich at lunch).
The main section of the resort is about 100 - 200 metres in land from the beach. The beach is extra-ordinary. So beautiful and natural. The are very few houses in the vacinity of the resort and only about 3 houses within view from the beach, so you feel quite remote.
The Margaret River areas is great and provides ample for people to do, but you do need a car.
In summary, I recommend the resort highly. It is the pick of places to stay in Margaret River, if you are looking for a larger resort.
