We had the pleasure of joining friends in attending a wedding reception at the resort. We stayed for two nights in the suite that was located nearest the waterfront. Spectacular view of the sunset on our first evening. We also attended the reception in the resturant. Great food and service. Would love to stay there again.

Our private cottage was just what my husband and I needed for rest and relaxation. The location is convenient to the Cabot Trail and many small towns to explore. There is plenty of room in each cottage including a large sitting area and small kitchenette. The bedroom and bathroom was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The private patio with Adirondack chairs was a bonus for watching magnificent sunsets! There is plenty of opportunity for safe walking and there is a rather nice beach. We opted for the dinner and breakfast package and were pleasantly surprised. Good value for the money. We also ate at the restaurant on the property which offers many well-prepared selections and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

We loved everything about the Island Sunset Resort. It was perfect for our stay of 4 nights. Our cottage had a lovely view of the water/harbour, was spacious, clean, and updated. Bed was comfortable and furnishings were nice. The restaurant had a very nice atmosphere and food was excellent. The surrounding area is quiet and at a very convenient location on the Cabot Trail and close by to the entrance of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The staff was friendly and helpful. The best part by far was the sunsets...absolutely breathtaking. Can't wait to go back!

We only stayed one night because we were on a road trip, but one night isn't long enough to appreciate this place. The 'cabin' was actually an upscale one bedroom apartment with ceramics and hardwood floors. If you're looking for a relaxed and peaceful setting, look no further. We also thoroughly enjoyed dinner at the restaurant, and it was reasonably priced for this level of quality food. We will be back, but not for 1 night.

After going for dinner at the Island Sunset restaurant we saw the beautiful cottage type rooms offered at this resort. We inquired about vacancy and ended up booking a 2 night stay. What a joy it was. The cottages are huge and fully equipped with everything that you would need. Overlooking the ocean you will be memorized by the beautiful sunsets. Enjoy a walk on the beach, make a small fire on the beach and why not be a little adventurist and try a little skinny dipping. A small lobster shack is located on the property as well as an elegant and beautiful restaurant. This is the place to stay at, guaranteed.
