“Sunrise Beach Hotel is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2005

We spent 10 days at the Sunrise Beach Hotel and loved it. Unlike the Decameron properties this is not an all-inclusive but does include breakfast. The employees were very friendly and helpful.

If you like all-inclusive resort environments the Decameron Marazul is stunningly beautiful, particularly if you are traveling with young kids.

Though by North American standards the Sunrise probably doesn't warrant a 5th star the location and general amenities are tops. I does appear, however, that the new management is taking steps to improve the hotel. The property sits about 400 meters south of the Acuario, next to the Boat Club. A five-minute walk puts you in the heart of the commercial district.

A typical day in paradise: scuba in the morning; beach/pool time with mojitos until 2pm; lobster for lunch; and shopping in the duty free stores until 8pm. If you are so inclined there are several good bars in the area to top off the night.

We particularly liked two restaurants: La Regatta and El Rincon del Langosto.

Johnny Cay and the coco locos are a must but I would bag Acuario Cay as it is overcrowded and ridiculously small. Renting a scooter or golf caft to tour the island is also advisable.

You can save lots of money avoiding the hotel tour representatives for rentals and boat trips and going directly to the providers.

Can't wait to return next year to the Sunrise.
