Firstly let me say that this was tagged onto a package we had booked with virgin and the total cost of this hotel for us ended up being £20 per night, so please take this into consideration when reading my review. For the price we paid this was a simple yet good apartment. Somebody previously compared it to an apartment typical of Greece. I have to say this apartment was much better than anything I have experienced in Greece. We booked into Travellers palm (its partner down the road) but on arrival realised there was a school party of teenage boys and so asked to move to the quieter Halcyon Palm. The area is quiet and tranquil, the rooms are relatively bright and spacious and have all you need to self cater in Barbados. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the small pool is clean and quiet. Maid service is not every day but when I called to say my bin was full somebody came and changed it (and did the washing up while we were out too!!). The only thing about this apartment is that the drains blocked twice (although somebody instantly fixed this). Sunset Crest is a nice place with everything you need but you may wish to consider having a car. You need to pay extra for AC but if you leave the bedroom door open it chills the whole apartment. Overall if you get a good deal this is a comfortable place to be.
