“2 minutes from beach and street”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

we stayed here from the 24th nov to the 8 dec 2013 and really enjoyed our stay. the room was basic but spotless, it was cleaned daily and bedding was changed every 2nd day. only a couple of minutes walk to either the beach or the main street with taxi office across street and enough eating places around to eat somewhere different every meal for a fortnight. only ate breakfast there but that was lovely. all staff friendly and helpful.rooms are quirky shapes and most are double aspect with a balcony at both windows.

We've just returned today from our second visit to Candolim and The Sunset Beach hotel. Again we had an absolutely brilliant time in Candolim. There's so much to do here, so many fab restaurants, bars and shacks on the beach. Last year I put a really good review on Tripadvisor for this hotel. This year was again lovely, but we did feel standards had slipped slightly. When we booked we requested first floor room 117 again, however we were given a ground floor room 106. This was a much smaller room and we weren't happy being on the ground floor (having previously had a snake in a ground floor bathroom in Anjuna)! We asked to change rooms, they eventually agreed the following day but only after the manager said we had to pay an extra £194!! This is a lot of money out of anyone's spare cash in your holiday spending money! The staff here are lovely, HOWEVER this year we found that one of the two young ladies who cleaned the rooms (possibly the older of the two) spent much of her day spitting, and I really mean big vile spitting, particularly into the gardens of the houses next to the hotel! YUK!! It really was disgusting to see/hear, particularly as it happened for the whole 3 weeks we were there! She didn't even stop when she knew we were on our balcony watching what she was doing! I must say though, the younger of the two ladies was so very lovely and friendly. She also cleaned our room very well. I would still recommend this hotel as it's location is great, very close to the beach or the Main Street with bars, restaurants etc. The pool is quite shaded, although it's cold this is very welcome in the heat! We also again ate in The Bistro. The food was fine, but when our friend asked if she could have a cocktail she was told no! That was it, no other explanation! Just seemed a bit unprofessional really. Anyway, would I recommend this hotel again? Yes. But don't expect too much and just appreciate it's fab location in Candolim. If anyone wants any more info I'm willing to provide if it will help to make your decision on whether to stay here or not.

visited in November 2013 during Diwali. twin-bedded room with balcony on 1st floor overlooking pool was spacious and clean with good air con, ceiling fan, refrigerator, tv with multiple cable channels, updated bathroom. staff were pleasant and efficient. free coffee and toast in the morning. good location in candolim, with short walk to the beach and tons of restaurants and shopping nearby. decent restaurant on site. shop for snacks, beer and wine right next door. on the down side: no free water in the frig, bland decor, no english language news channels on the tv, frequent power outages, no wifi. but for the price, outstanding in most other respects.

Room Tip: we liked our room overlooking the pool, but pool hours were supposed to be 9-5 but on one occasion...

Another very short and sweet review of this hotel, we stayed for the 3rd time at Sunset Beach in January and February 2013, and have booked again for January and February 2014.

The hotel is clean, basic, in a fantastic location, and is one which sells out very quickly.

The rooms are very spacious, always clean, yes they could all do with a lick of paint, but I don't know about you, but I don't go to hotels based on the decor. The beds are firm but extreemley comfy. We stayed in a room above reception on this occassion, and my only gripe would be the location of the AC unit, as I did not feel the benefit of it where it was positioned.

Again the breakfast isn't the best, as you get tea/coffee and juice, along with toast, anything else you want is extra, eggs for example. So again, we just walk to the main road, and have breakfast at the fantastic Chocolati.

I would recommend this hotel to everyone who is going to Candolim, as it allows you the great location, of being able to go into the built up and busier areas, or stay at the hotel end where it's nice and quiet. Ideal for families, couples and those travelling on their own. Nice warm family feel to this small hotel, which has brought us back time and time again.

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for a sea view, for one you can't see the sea because of the palm trees, and...
