If you want a place RIGHT on the beach that has a youthful hip vibe with a French twist, this is the place for you. The rooms are all decorated in modern beach style each with its own huge veranda. It is clean and simple yet upscale - beautiful linens on the bead, top notch toiletries in the bath, and... More

Our room was appointed with every amenity you could think of, Khiels shampoo, conditioner & lotion stocked daily, I loved it. I have stayed at many 5 star hotels around the world and I must say, they made me feel right at home. Our room was huge, comfy king bed in one area which opened up to a gorgeous living... More

Value is a ratio of what you get versus what you pay. We found the entire experience fantastic but at roughly $600 per night you expect a lot, even in the high season. So while everything was fine, here is what they should have done for that price (and I must nitpick, but you hopefully understand). Bring more that a... More

Sunset Beach is exactly what we needed to decompress from a long travel day from Texas before traveling out to Hamptons to see our friends. Nice size room, comfy bed, friendly staff...Great location, beautiful beach. Rained the day we were there so more options on TV (ie. HBO, Showtime) would have been nice.

We went out of the city for a short break and found this little hotel. It was not exactly how pictured it to be. The room was wonderful full of amenities. Beachfront view. Loved the sun deck. Not much of a beach but it was quiet. Dinner is not bad. Decent but pricey. We had the opportunity to ride around... More

My husband and I went for a weekend getaway ... Customer service was horrible, rooms smelled bad and were dirty, food wasn't that great . This place never specified that it was pet friendly we had to be switched in 1 hour to 3 different rooms, if you own a pet and don't mind the dog hair and the stale... More

This place is a St Tropez like ! I spent 2 nights with my wife last summer. The concept is very relaxing. It reminds me St Tropez boutique hotel. You need to make your reservation in advance to have the privilege to have a room. I will come back this summer !

Beautiful property, European atmosphere, crappy service. The breakfasts were excellent but dinner was hit or miss, either really good or really bad. Customer service is non-existent, staff is just not friendly or attentive. Loved the balcony of my room - lovely view. The room could have been nicer, it's like they're trying too hard to be cool. The clientele is... More
