There is a swimming pool and the wifi in rooms was free. For meals it was a lot more trickier, many places were not... More

Great location on the coast looking out over the ocean watching boats pass., 2 mins walk to local pub/resturant and 10 mins walk to supermarket. Access to a kitchen in adjoining biulding if you need it. We used the BBQ in the pool area for a few late nights.

I visited The Sunset in Christmas Island and stayed in one of the Seaview ground floor rooms for 10 nights during May 2016. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with plenty of room for mine and my husbands luggage including underwater camera gear. There was a good sized fridge, kettle and toaster with tea, coffee and fresh milk supplied daily.... More

Thankyou Perth Scuba for visiting us once again. I apologise for the mobile bed! Each bed on tiles is supposed to have castor cups underneath the castors! Thank you for your kind words. It was good to see you enjoying yourselves! More

Thank you for your review and kind comments. I would have to say the weather during your stay was eventful! Not seeing a sunset was such a shame along with the dive operator being away on holiday.

Our once-in-a-lifetime crab watching December 2015 adventure started when we arrived at The Sunset Resort. We had a lovely time there - and we couldn't fault it. We were within very easy walking distance of the local shops at the Settlement. Our large and very clean room plus bathroom, with our own balcony, overlooked those magical sea views where we...

I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Sunset and the views of the ocean. I remember well the hiccup with the lost suitcase keys but you got to see your first red crabs as a bonus! Thankyou for the kind comments and the postcard from Melbourne last week. You were delightful guests. More

Great spot for accomodation and hosts on a pleasant rock in the middle of nowhere. Wonderful people all over the Island. Every Australian should visit here at least once to experience a great spot. Not like your holiday islands of spending etc. More a cultural diversity. Great snorkelling and diving and fishing and jungle walks and sights etc. Thoroughly reccommended

To my shock all the ocean view rooms were taken so I thought I'd missed out, but the pool view room was great! Best of both worlds, sea and pool. The room was very clean, all the items you'd expect to find including a good sized fridge. (Eating out ever meal on the island can be a bit $$$)

Fantastic value for money with stunning sunset views from our 1st floor balcony. Service was perfect , facilities were perfect. Close enough to everything by a couple minute car journey or a very short walk. Highly recommend this accommodation.
