After vacationing here, I realized that the negative complaints were very petty. We had a speedy check in. The staff was very fast in getting us all a cold drink for our wait. We were not thrilled with the room but we didnt come to jamaica to hang out in the room. My only complaint would have to be dancing... More

This hotel has great potential, but falls short on execution. I stayed at Sunset for the first time, and won't be returning. They've forgotten the little details, which add up little by little. Pool levels were low the entire time I was there (7 days total). Flies everywhere, including the main buffet. Needed a pool towel pass just to get... More

3 of my friends and I stayed here for our spring break back in March. We were here for 7 nights. Overall, we were very satisfied with the resort as a whole. The rooms were clean, but the sheets could be upgraded a little. They were kind of stiff and uncomfortable. We requested adjourning rooms because we had 2 rooms,... More

I am writing this review with nothing to compare to this vacation as I have never been out of the US for vacation before this trip. Overall I give Jamaica and the resort a positive review and I would go back. The resort: It is a 3 star resort and that rating is about right. The rooms are nice but... More

My stay at the Sunset Beach Resort was by complete accident. After staying at Sandals Negril for my honeymoon, my huband and I were "stuck" in Jamaica after our travel agent gave us the wrong itinerary with the wrong flight information. After hours (and hours) at the airport trying to find a way home, the airline put us up at... More

Just finished a week at Sunset Beach, as a travel agent I wanted to check out the resort for my clients and see if this is where I would take my grandchildren. From my point of view this resort is great for a family trip, and maybe couples considering there is always entertainment in the lobby area at night. Please... More

Originally went to Sunset Beach five years ago for my husband's 40th birthday, it was our first visit to Jamaica and we really enjoyed it. We said that someday we would come back to Sunset Beach. Well we have been back to Jamaica five times since that first one - to different resorts - and always had a good time.... More

We were on a cruise and only Sandals was offered as a beach resort type excursion, and it was over 100pp. So we had heard good things about Sunset Beach. You could have walked almost from the cruise ship and could see the ship as you played it was so close, the cab was about 3 us dollars. Food, well... More

We just got back fron our 6 day stay at Sunset Beach. I was a little leary after I read the reviews on this site, but at least that gave me knowledge of what to expect. The staff were amazing, very nice, the rooms clean, the hotels and pool clean. The food sucked..I don't know if it was the place... More
