I’ve just returned from a week on Christmas Island staying at the Sunset and I loved my stay. Staff provided excellent and faultless service, friendly and helpful. In the rooms, there’s a bar fridge, microwave, kettle, crockery and cutlery and you can use the communal kitchen at VQ3 (I didn’t use the communal kitchen as I didn’t need it). The views over the ocean and the sunset are great, and the onsite pool is a great way to spend a few leisurely hours after sightseeing each day. Best place to stay on Christmas island.

My wife & I were with a group of friends (total 3 couples) and spent a week on Xmas diving (with Wet and Dry Adventures) & we all had adjacent upstairs rooms at The Sunset. We found it very comfortable, spacious, clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The location was very convenient (close to the Tavern), the ocean views are great, the pool and BBQ amenities were excellent & I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
