We stayed at the Sunset Island resort for 2 nights in late march, upon arrival we were impressed at the cleanliness of the apartments. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, with a large doubler room and small twin room (twin room so small that with 2 beds in the room, the door wouldn't close). However the lounge/kitchen area was very spacious with a balcony overlooking the pool.
The apartments themselves appear to be deigned to cater for long staying customers, as the rooms are serviced once a week, for this to be increased its $35 per time, fortunately we were only staying for 2 nights.
The location of the apartments is excellent, being only 5/10 minutes walk to the restaurants, bars and beach, it couldn't be better.
The downside to the apartments is that as mentioned in other reviews, without being careful you could find yourself being charged a lot of 'extra fees'. Should you forget your apartment key outside of office hours, and require buzzing in by the management, you will be charged $50. Should you be late to check out after 10am, you're charged $20 per hour.
On the whole, the apartments are very clean, with a decent size pool and are in a great location, definitely worth staying here, just be careful not to expose yourself to the charges and you'll really enjoy your stay here!
