My family and I just returned Sunset Beach in Montego Bay Friday. Complete review; first impression was a very prompt and courteous driver (Mr.Lindsay McFarlane / SNL Jamaican Tours /1-876-412-4298 /Jamaica Tourist Board Certified JTB Lic.# FM154). I put him in front of this review first and foremost because he will make your trip safe and relaxing for the entire family. Book with him in advance.
The Sunset Beach resort was a short ride from the airport. We were greeted with fruit drinks and a friendly staff. A fairly short check in process, we did online check in prior to arrival but still had to register onsite. We arrived in the mid afternoon and our room was ready after check in. My first impression was the place is a older but renovated. We stayed in tower A, 7th floor Oceanfront as reserved. Good size room for a family of 4, we took a 14 year old and a 2 year old. The room was clean, had a large balcony, nice views and overall very comfortable for us. Let's get the biggest complaint you will have out of the way; Internet sucks, you have to go to the lobby to use it, you get 30 min free and then pay different rates. I paid the $30.00 for the week. Somehow we got wireless in room A 709 so we didn't have to got to the lobby everyday. Pure luck on that I think. Next impression the food. OMG it was awesome. Say what you will about all inclusive resorts but I ate at the open buffet every single meal. It was just that good, very fresh, great variety, I loved it, the family loved it. Three other restaurants are on site as well and other guest raved about them. The drinks are also great, bring a large insulated glass for Red Stripe beer or an Appleton rum frozen drink... you will need them. They will make whatever you want at every bar and they are all very well laid out in location.
The beach area is mainly open family area on the resort property. Guest only are allowed (no pushy vendors anywhere). A few vendors are neatly set up in booths/tables at the hotel, none of them are approach you to buy there products. The large beach area has watersports, plenty of chairs and shade. Nice sands and clear waters mixed with some areas of vegetation as well. There is clothing optional beach, and a nude beach all safe with security guard at entry and well secluded from the other beach areas. We spent hours at the beach daily relaxing. The far end where the bar hut is at is the place to be. The resort has a teen club, and a kids club daycare. The kids enjoyed both.
We went on a day trip with Lindsay to Negril beaches. That was a fantastic day for all. Lindsay really knows where to take you. He offered us a half day or whatever we wanted. We chose an all day trip. The 7 mile beach is stunning. I have traveled to most Caribbean countries, this was a first to Jamaica. I loved it, what a great experience.
I went on a half day trip alone to golf. Lindsay took me to Cinnamon Hill golf course. I played a hot 9 holes with a very nice caddy named Wittney. Good Nike rental clubs. Spectacular views, ocean view holes, elevated holes overlooking vast green mountainous areas. Before golf Lindsay took me to a very nice gift shop that sold authentic Cuban cigars and specialty rums. Oh yea mon I did enjoy the day!
Checkout was easy. We really hated to leave and definitely will return. If you are looking for a great value in Jamaica and most importantly a safe, pleasant vacation. Call Lindsay before you go and stay at Sunset Beach Resort for a perfect FAMILY getaway.
