We went to sunset beach for lunch today. The roadside location was noisy, parking impossible, parking attendant inhospitable beyond belief and we were quite frankly appalled by the behavior of the service staff. The place was half empty but we had to beg for a table, when we were finally seated the way we were spoken to by our waiter... More

I must say that Sunday afternoon and evening at Sunset Beach by the fire pit was an extraordinary experience. Drinks where priced accordingly to my believe. The atmosphere was fun, sultry and full of energy. Unfortunately the quality of service is very poor and for those prices in the menu we really expected a much more interesting and full filling...

Loved the view. Loved the gift shop. Room was sparse yet has a cool type of decor. Bathroom was old tile and hardware motel style. Could barely fit one person in there. No shower cap, no lock on the bathroom door. Sink is outside the bathroom and don't expect to be able to get dressed in the bathroom it's way... More

This place was awful, really don't waste your money here, was ridiculously expensive, i have no problem in paying alot of money for something but you may as well chuck it down the toilet here. The front desk staff were lovely and very accommodating but that was the only highlight, wait staff are useless, the guy at dinner was a... More

We have stayed at sunset beach for years ( 6) and always loved it. The service was not fantastic but the setting and fun restaurant ,great gift shop and the beach made up for most of it. This time the attitude was horrible it felt like there was no management around. Things did not feel clean when we asked for... More

Was invited to Shelter Island for the first time this weekend. It was a mixture of friends, family and children. At first glimpse, the place is paradise. Kid friendly. Not the Hamptons scene per se. That was the last thing I wanted. However in just 3 days, a phone, cash and camera were stolen at different times from different people... More

I HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an amazing weekend getaway. Kimi Nakata (General Manager) was incredible and made the trip much more enjoyable for myself and my girlfriend. Not only did she allow us to check in early, but accommodated us with an upgrade to a gorgeous top floor suite with our own private terrace. I cannot... More

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
