“Great and affordable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

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 doorknob and management fixed it immediately. The staff was attentive. We had the breakfast on the terrace in the morning. On the day we were going to leave they let us lock up our bags so that we didn't have to carry them all day. Clean hotel and they had a rental car available. I would recommend and I will return in the future.

Room Tip: I would suggest a room towards the water.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We stayed at the Sunset for one night's accomodation before our villa was available. Our superior room was on the harborside with balcony looking out over the Gustavia Harbor, you certainly can't beat that view for the price. Our room also had a small table and two chairs next to the door. Nice for happy hour and morning coffee. Your neighbors will also be using their's, so it's a chatty, fun environment. Room was fine. Big negative for me was the hand-held shower, no hook in the shower so it had to be held the entire time. Interesting "industial" type hair dryer. It's noisy here, it's on a busy street in Gustavia, so unless you are a deep sleeper be prepared to wake to the sound of whinning scooters. Overall, budget accomodations with a terrific view and location. If lack of privacy and noise are not issues with you, this would be fine for a longer stay. For me, it's a great place to hang for one or two nights and then move on to something else. Which reminds me, check out is 10:00am sharp!

Room Tip: Balcony overlooking the harbor, a little more, but worth it. Although inside room would be quieter.

Great hotel for a quick trip to St. Barths! Staff was excellent and helped arrange our car rental. Very quick to answer my emails. Clean hotel with big rooms. Wonderful view of the harbor! Breakfast on the patio was very nice.

The place to be for the budget traveller. Safe and clean room and great view form the balcony of the city. Great to drink a wine and enjoy the view. You can park your car accross the street where also the Saint Martin Ferry arrives. Staff is helpful and speaks English. The hotel also has a rental boot at the airport where I got a new rental car for a good price and good service. Big advantage is that you can walk the whole city from the hotel. Good restaurants are like a 5 minute walk. With the car you will be at a nice beach in 5 minutes. If you want to see Saint Barths but you are afriad of the expensive name it has than you should go to this hotel. The money you will safe can be used in the excellent restaurants!

Lovely view from terrace of Gustavia Harbor, clean room, perfect town location! air-con, t.v., hairdryer, fridge with drinks for an extra cost, breakfast 8euros. Miriam our only staff was nice, did everything. We stayed in the Double Superior room not luxurious, but you can save the luxury $ for other things in St.Barths

It's comfortable, very clean and nicely presented. Felt quite luxurious having air-con, ceiling fan/everything newly decorated - ooh and a t.v. and hairdryer. They would prefer you don't eat in the room (ants are a big problem on the island, and it's ant-free at the Sunset at present!) but there is a fridge so I had a very careful breakfast there in the mornings. Fresh beach towel every day. All good. Very very reasonably priced. Great location, everything nearby including beach 10 mins away. Lovely view. Yes, it's not luxury but it's more than enough and the recent renovations are great! I liked it and would go back (if I can ever afford the flights again!). Oh and the staff? Okay, they're not likely to make a fuss of you, but they smiled and did whatever I asked. So I can't complain.

Don't stay at Sunset if you look for 1st class comfort,150" pool,jacuzzi,sauna,tennis court etc
But all the basics are there for a nice stay.
People visiting,and enjoying St. Barth don't stay in hotels day long.
Staff is nice,wireless almost everywhere,better stay on the terrace overlooking the harbour entrance (very busy all day long,with super yachts arriving and leaving)
