Had a night in the sunset hotel prior to checking into our villa for the week. The place was situated in a great location in Gustavia right on the marina. This was great as we were participating in Les Voiles de St Barts so our boat was close. The hotel room was a simple 2 single bed room, had wifi... More

The Sunset continues to excel at basic accommodation on an island with constantly upward spiraling prices. The rooms and the furnishings are not super high end, but they are fresh, clean and well-maintained. Breakfast is served, French style, on the common terrace or right in front of the rooms. The location is right on the main drag, directly across from... More

If you want to stay in St Barts on a relatively cheap budget, this is a great choice. It's right across the street from the ferry terminal, close to shops and restaurants. There is a nice open terrace to watch the street. Friendly staff. We slept on the non street side of the hotel, it was nice and quiet. Only... More

We stayed at the Sunset hotel for two nights while waiting for our villa to be ready. It is the least expensive choice on St. Barths but the value for the money is very high. Although our room did not have a view, as some do, it was fine as we were only there for a couple of nights. The... More

Our room was so small we could barely move. No place for suitcases so we were tripping over them to move around. Bathroom was tiny. Beds were uncomfortable. Lobby was nice and we did have much needed air conditioning. Location was nice and view from terrace was lovely. But room was so uncomfortable and cramped I would never stay again.... More

If you like being in the middle of it all this is a perfect Hotel for you. If you book a room on the water front then you will be awoke by the morning traffic that starts at 7 am sharp. If you opt for the back side rooms then you will able to sleep in a bit. The rooms... More

If you want to be exhausted for the whole of your holiday then stay here. The day we arrived there was scaffolding being dissembled workers starting at 6.30am, when i came out and asked them to stop they ignored me. Thankfully after 3 mornings of waking me they stopped. We stayed on for 10 days and frankly only because the... More

My husband, son and I stayed at the Sunset for 2 nights. It was our first time in St. Barths and it was surprisingly very nice! Clean basic French hotel. Staff was very friendly and Mariam is a jewel! We plan to go again next spring and will stay here again! Great location directly across from the ferry. Hotel reserved... More

I just returned from 3 nights at the Sunset Hotel. I had read the reviews and wasn't expecting a resort, but did expect a clean hotel. The hotel has a sewer problem, it smells terrible in first floor foyer and second floor (owner burns incense to cover smell during the day), we could also smell in our rooms in the... More

This was my first time to St. Barth and I found this hotel to be so convenient. It is across the street from the ferry. It is in walking distance to shopping, restaurants, the beach. We had a room facing the water. It had a huge bathroom, the a/c worked well, and comfortable beds. We had an issue with our... More
