Again, we have stayed at Kory South's Sunset Resort Villa in Treasure Beach. It has always been great, but this time it surpasses GREAT! The place is wonderful, newly refreshed rooms, coffee makers, TV, CD player, etc....couldn't ask for more. (P.S. got less amenities at a "high-end" hotel in Port Antonio than we did at Sunset Resort.)
The food is always great, the beer very cold and Kory can make special requests for side trips, fishing outings, and more. A first class place with a top-of-the-line Host.
Cheers!!!

Room Tip: Mermaid, jungle, any one fo four sites by the pool or a separate little house/room w/ cooking facilities.

We recently spent 5 nights at the Sunset Resort and Villas in Treasure Beach. This was our first trip to Jamaica although we have been to other Carribean countries. We drove from the airport at Montego Bay (Mobay) to Treasure Beach which was an interesting experience. We had driven in 3 other Caribbean countries and were prepared for potholes, lack of signage and narrow roads. Jamaica adds fast driving by local taxis to the mix. However, we arrived just before sunset to a beautiful setting and to a very friendly host.
Our room was spacious with a fairly large separate bathroom and a nice big outside porch that faced the Sea. We unpacked and immediately relaxed. We checked out the very clean pool and the surroundings and talked with a couple of employees. We met Janette who got us situated rather quickly. The sound of the surf helped us get to sleep in a comfortable bed.
We awoke to a cloudy but warm morning and had a Jamaican breakfast. Whenever we travel, we try to eat what is grown and eaten locally. A full breakfast is included in the resort rental and we were quite pleased with the Jamaican offerings. The coffee was especially good and we were told (emphatically) that no instant coffee was served at Sunset.
Sunset Resort and Villas is quite well situated in Treasure Beach for someone who wants to see the countryside. We had a fresh water pool and some beaches and restaurants all within easy walking distance. To someone coming from the frozen north, it was especially delightful to walk in the warm climate and to see beautiful flowers and meet very friendly people. We thought that starting out with a cloudy day was bad but it turned out to be great. We were able to go to the nearby fisherman’s beach and watch fish being unloaded and sold on the shore and not get sunburned.
We used Sunset as the launching point for trips to YS Falls, the Appleton Estate rum factory, Black River and the rest of Treasure Beach. I don’t think we could have better situated to do a lot of things. Even if we had not driven, local taxis were available to take you most anywhere. Car rental and gasoline are expensive so you have to decide if you are going to spend your cash renting a car or hiring taxis. We met people who were doing both.
If you want a high end all inclusive resort, stay away from here. But if you want a vacation in a relaxed Jamaican setting, this is it! Sunset Resort and Villas is clean and well laid out, has a pool, is central to travel, is run by friendly owners and staff and is modestly priced. I can’t imagine we could have chosen better than this.

We took a 2 day mini-vacation to Treasure beach area from negril in Sept. 2011. We decided to take a look at the rooms at Sunset Resort Villa's....WOW, large spacious rooms that are very well decorated. Since this was slow season we pretty much had the resort to ourselfs. We stayed in the honeymoon octagon room on the second floor overlooking the beautiful caribbean waters. We had dinner served up on our verandah over looking the sea...chef Lola is an awesome cook ! Pool was cleaned early morning just in time for me to enjoy an early morning swim. The sunsets are the most awesome sunsets i have seen in jamaica, nothing compared to Negrils !
We WILL be returning possibly on our upcoming vacation in Feb. and so look forward to having our special room again :)

respect
wendy

Room Tip: we looked at all the rooms that surrounded the dining area/pool area and i would most def. choose anyone of these, but my heart LOVES the Honeymoon suite !

My 83 year-old mother & I had the fortune of being able to stay at the Sunset Resort & Villas, on Jamaica's South Coast, in Treasure Beach, this past December. Here, you will find a very laid-back, relaxing time. Unlike other parts of the island, there are no speeding drivers & in fact relatiavely fewer cars. Sunset Resort provided for all our needs in a comfortable yet elegant setting!

On your approximately 2-1/2 hour trip from Montego Bay down to the South Coast, you will be overtaken by the green & flowering landscape while rising higher & higher into the Cockpit Mountain range ("Mi No Sen, You No Come”). On the southern side of the mountain range, you will then descend to the South Coast. The coastal community of Treasure Beach, is at about the first 1/3 of the west side of Jamaica. Upon your arrival to Sunset Resort & Villas, you will see that this place is definitely, as it designates itself, "A Little Piece of Heaven"! The sunset there is not rivaled anywhere in the world – nothing like seeing the entire trajectory of the sun throughout the day facing south in the winter north of the Tropic of Capricorn & then watching it drop off into the sea!

Mom & I stayed in the Sunset Dream 2, Villa 2, on the leeward side of a cottage facing the Caribbean Sea. Our room was wonderful; we had an extremely comfortable king-sized bed w/ bedside tables & lamps on both ends, ample space for 2 people to unpack & put things out, a large bathroom that included a coffee-maker and you could see the sea from the bed through the double French doors. It also included one of those energy-effecient air-conditioning units on a wall near the ceiling w/ remote control and a TV, neither of which we turned on. Our porch, complete with lounge chairs & a cafe-style table & chairs, was the place where we spent every morning, enjoying our coffee & tea & talking or reading the Jamaica Gleaner. Birds & flowers are everywhere!

The Sunset Resort restaurant was just a few paces away & provided us with an incredible full breakfast every morning. The breakfast for both of us was included in the price of our room & we could pick anything off the menu that we wanted (eggs, omlettes, french toast, bacon or sausage, whole-wheat toast, a fruit plate, juices and coffee or tea). We also enjoyed the restaurant for incredible dinners. One night, we had a wonderful salad & dressing, Grilled Kingfish, perfectly-cooked vegetables & rice ‘n’ peas. Sunset Resort is a family-owned business, operated by Kory South. Kory is an avid fisherman & actually catches the fish for your meals!!!

The pool at Sunset is really one of the most unique & comfortable I've ever been in. It has a ledge to sit on that goes around the entire perimeter, which allowed my mother to be in the pool without fear of getting in over her head; this is also a great feature for families with young children.

At Sunset, you are right nearby all of the places to eat in Treasure Beach. Right next-door to the west is Jake's Place & the Jack Sprat restaurant. Further west is Fisherman's Beach with all of its restaurants & beaches.

One more thing: I am a Type 1 Diabetic on an insulin pump. Our last night at Sunset, my insulin pump ceased working, which threw both me & my mom into sheer panic. However, every single staff member at Sunset immediately understood the gravity of the situation & "jumped into action" in assisting me. They got me a driver & took mom & I to the hospital at Black River. One of the employees, Merle, stayed there in the ER with us for 6 hours until 3 am., even thought she had to work the breakfast shift. Having a medical emergency in a foreign country is a scary experience but the Sunset staff handled everything with precision & made us feel comfortable in spite of it. The "extended family" there deserves kudos for everything they did our entire stay there & are simply "the BEST"!!

Stayed: December 2010
