I like going early to avoid the crowds - breakfast is very limited - a few choices of crepes, quiche,pasteries, smoked salmon & bagel and great coffee - all excellent - friendly staff ...you order at the counter and take food to your table - informal style with some great music and a view across the street of beach &...

We spent 4 nights at the Sunset Beach. The spot is really nice and the sunset amazing but unfortunately the place is very overpriced considering the lack of service: hard to find someone to help you with the luggage which were heavy considering we are traveling from Europe, no service at night in the room, self service for breakfast at...

My sister and I stopped at Sunset Beach last summer (August of 2015) for a very late lunch (or very early dinner). We also wanted to see how the hotel has changed since we vacationed on Shelter Island when we were kids. Our grandfather owned a home on the island from 1930 until 1985 so my mother and her siblings... More

Nice hotel, nice restaurant. The rooms are a tiny bit dated compared to the "trendiness" of the place but the location and the vibe is still great. It's a bit of a scene, no random dressers there. Very French, every time we go there for lunch or dinner, the waiters and at least half of the customers speak French. The... More

Yes, there are a lot of negative reviews about price and service, but my boyfriend and I went anyway and we are glad we did. You can't beat the sunset and the service and the food was great in our experience. It is pricey, even for NYC standards, but not so outrageous given what you pay in the City. It's... More

I love Sunset Beach. I love the casual, chic atmosphere. You feel as though you are in Europe after a fun ferry ride and winding road. My favorite is the top deck where you have the most beautiful view of sunset and boats. I love that children can play on the beach and you can grab a bite. Our server... More

My husband and I stayed here last summer with our then-six month old. It was perfect for what we wanted - the beach and restaurant/bar are right outside your door, so you don't have to go far for anything. The room was big enough to comfortably fit a travel crib. It's definitely a trendy hotel and I was a bit... More

This is a comfortable beachside hotel in a lovely peaceful location. The staff were very friendly, efficient and generally glamorous. The restaurant served simple, fresh, well cooked food with good choices. However, there were no alternatives to the hotel restaurant nearby and the prices for breakfast and lunch were expensive. If you don't have a car you are locked into... More

Came to a Sunset Beach on a recommendation from a friend who loves it. Overall Sunset is a fun, warm, chic little hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and kind, the crowd in the hotel is fun and outgoing! The views from the hotel and beach are spectacular. We enjoyed just hanging out and watching the people. The rooms are... More
