My husband and I had a great time at Sunshine Suites. The hotel is very clean both inside and outside; the grounds are well kept and manicured. The rooms were spacious and we had no complaints at all. The breakfast was basic; it consisted of bagels, toast, waffles, cereal, pastries, fruit and juices. It’s free so you can’t complain at all. We stayed on the 2nd floor and we did not encounter any problems at all. I didn’t see any elevators on the premises but we didn’t have problems walking up and down the stairs at all. We also went to Fosters to purchase food and drinks, the hotel had a regular sized refrigerator and a small stove, so we used that for our lunches. We ate elsewhere for dinner. The island is very expensive so shopping for food and bring it back to the room saved us a lot of money.
The employees at the Sunshine Grill are awesome; they all work hard and are really friendly. I would stay there again!
The beach is about a 3 minute walk across a busy street. We didn’t find it challenging to cross the street; some people actually slow down or stop and allow you to cross. You can get chairs from the hotel and take them to the beach. The beach area is gorgeous and it does not have rocks like other parts of Seven Mile Beach. We walked to both ends of Seven Mile Beach and we found that the area near Sunshine Suites which would be the Ritz to the Westin is better, in regards to coral or rocks near the sand. The water looks clearer going towards Cemetery Beach but there are also more rocks in that area.
The island shuts down on Sundays, the only things open are gas stations and restaurants, so we spend our Sundays on the beach, marinating in the sun.
We walked to Georgetown two days in a row, it took us about 1.5 hours to walk there and we took the bus back to the hotel. It was about 1.50 US per person. There are many places to shop on the way to Georgetown.
The island is very friendly and very laid back. My husband and I are in our early 30’s and we usually go to the Caribbean to party, but this time we went to relax and it was the perfect island to relax. There isn’t much night life because everything pretty much closes early.
We went to Sting Ray City with Captain Crosby, it was about $25 per person and it was well worth it, its an experience of a life time. We also rented a car for one day and we drove around the island and went to Rum Point, that’s a place that you have to see. It’s gorgeous and the water is very calm and shallow. It didn’t take my husband long to learn how to drive on the other side of the road and there really wasn’t much traffic at all. We were really surprised that the roads were pretty much empty.
Overall, we had an awesome time and we would definitely go back again.
