Sunset has a fun and upbeat bar that's perfect for families or just a bunch of people looking to have fun. The waitstaff is very attentive, the drinks are good and the food is far better than many beach bars. And of course you have a front row to the planes coming and going and the crazy people who like jet wash.

We stopped at this destination venue, as part of an Island-wide tour. No question, it's in a great spot to dip your toes in the Caribbean and watch planes landing and taking off, and the by-standers reactions to both.

But try and get any staff's attention for either drinks or food, you'd be better off standing out on the airport's runway. We were there for 20 minutes, on a very slow day, and could not get anybody behind the bar to exhibit interest in taking an order for bar and food. Not even make eye contact.

It's was amazingly sad. There was a DJ, and he was blasting music in the middle of the day. Just an overall very poor showing for a place that St. Martin is supposedly known for.

If you go, go to see the planes, and stop off somewhere else for food and drinks, before you get there!

Very well located bar, great view of the beach and landing airplanes. Overall good food. However, the service is horrible. If you are going there hoping for a good service you will probably be very disappointed. Very slow service. In addition the servers and bar tenders are not very friendly. When finally the food gets to the table, they want you out as soon as possible. If you just wanna get a beverage or a drink, you are not welcome to the tables, you gotta sit by the bar.

This was a great place to sit by the beach, enjoy the surf, eat, drink and watch the planes. Very neat to be able to watch the screen to see when plans were landing and taking off. Food was good and service was top notch. You can sit by the water, watch the sea creatures and planes at the same time. Even had a small pool where you could sit and cool off.
