“First Class All The Way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

From the minute we arrived at Sunset Cove, the smily, happy staff couldn't do enough for us. We arrived in the middle of a rain storm soaked to the skin, and the first thing they did was provide us with fresh towels to get dried off! Everyone who works at Sunset seems to smile the whole time, and looking around you, you can see why.

Our bungalow, and the resort itself, were spotlessly clean. They have a beautiful infinity pool, beach, and bar/eating area. Their menu was great, extensive, and not over priced. If, however, you want to eat elsewhere, there are plenty of other places to eat within short walking distance from the resort.

Sunset Cove helped us organise a day trip to Ang Thong and everything went flawlessly from start to finish.

I got home to Bangkok after the trip and realised I'd left my wallet in our bungalow. One phone call later and it was posted out to me, arriving via special delivery just 2 days later.

I have nothing bad at all to say about this resort, and am going back in a few weeks to spend more time there. Anyone who hasn't tried this place out - what are you waiting for?

5 stars all the way for Sunset Cove!

Room Tip: We took sea view bungalow A2 which overlooked the pool/beach area.

This was a nice resort to stay in and good value for the money. The rooms are clean and the outdoor bathrooms are nice. Also, the pool is great for relaxing. The only problem with the resort is if you want to be around a variety of restaurants there are only a few near the resort and haad rin is 40 minutes and 20 dollars away. Because the food in the resort is not good at all this was a problem for me. I ended up staying 3 nights though, so if you want to relax I'd recommend this place.

A really beautiful place, in room facilities aren't the best (no shower gel or kettle) but you won't spend any time in your room! There is plenty of extras around the hotel, masks, bat and balls water pistols etc which are free to use as u wish. The staff are easily the nicest people we came into contact with on the island very helpful and accommodating.. Would definitely recommend!

Recently had five days here in one of the beach front bungalows. Rooms were basic but very comfortable and clean with a indoor and out door shower and wooden bath tub!
You'll struggle to get a better view from a infinity pool than this with the sun setting into the sea every evening.
The staff were wonderful and so kind and always so cheerful! We only had the breakfast at the Cove and that was superb but Benjamin's Hut next door has some of the best spring rolls we've had on our trip!
Word of warning the bugs come out in force at night, but was probably a lot to do with the time of year so plenty of spray is recommended.

We spent two nights at sunset cove and did not want to leave at all. The place is so relaxing with the palmtrees, the pool and the beach you'll never want to leave it.

The hotel is a Thai family run business and they are incredibly friendly people.

The cheapest rooms are quite basic so we asked to be upgraded to one of the Deluxe rooms and it was no problem (low season and no upcoming moon party). The Deluxe rooms are very comfortable with a hot shower outside. Don't expect a fancy resort, go to another beach for that, but expect a very sincere and friendly place to stay at.

The sunsets over Chao Phao beach are just the best. Sit back, have a nice dinner and enjoy the moment.

One of the best places we've stayed at in Thailand!
