Nice hotel, nice restaurant. The rooms are a tiny bit dated compared to the "trendiness" of the place but the location and the vibe is still great. It's a bit of a scene, no random dressers there. Very French, every time we go there for lunch or dinner, the waiters and at least half of the customers speak French. The... More

Yes, there are a lot of negative reviews about price and service, but my boyfriend and I went anyway and we are glad we did. You can't beat the sunset and the service and the food was great in our experience. It is pricey, even for NYC standards, but not so outrageous given what you pay in the City. It's... More

I love Sunset Beach. I love the casual, chic atmosphere. You feel as though you are in Europe after a fun ferry ride and winding road. My favorite is the top deck where you have the most beautiful view of sunset and boats. I love that children can play on the beach and you can grab a bite. Our server... More

My husband and I stayed here last summer with our then-six month old. It was perfect for what we wanted - the beach and restaurant/bar are right outside your door, so you don't have to go far for anything. The room was big enough to comfortably fit a travel crib. It's definitely a trendy hotel and I was a bit... More

This is a comfortable beachside hotel in a lovely peaceful location. The staff were very friendly, efficient and generally glamorous. The restaurant served simple, fresh, well cooked food with good choices. However, there were no alternatives to the hotel restaurant nearby and the prices for breakfast and lunch were expensive. If you don't have a car you are locked into... More

Came to a Sunset Beach on a recommendation from a friend who loves it. Overall Sunset is a fun, warm, chic little hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and kind, the crowd in the hotel is fun and outgoing! The views from the hotel and beach are spectacular. We enjoyed just hanging out and watching the people. The rooms are... More

It is impossible for me to understand previous reviews of Sunset Beach, quite simply we have had the amazing start to our honeymoon here. I was nervous upon booking having read various reviews and came with trepidation. I couldn't be more delighted to say how wrong they are. Everything about this place is simply fantastic. It is beautifully styled, spotlessly... More

My friend and I thought this would be a great getaway weekend from Manhattan. First--the property is fun---think trendified, upscale motel. The landscaping is lovely, but the rooms are pretty bare bones/low end. It's all about location, location, location. It's right across from the beach. They have a fun open air restaurant with cool music and vibe. Unfortunately the wknd... More

Probably the worst hotel experience I've had in my life to being with. Come on...if the waiter is screwing you with $10 water, can it get any worse? OK, so I write my note after getting thieved and the new manager (son of the old owner) calls me a few months later. Great. Nice guy. Wants to turn things around..blah.blah.... More
