    We went for my sister's wedding and we had an amazing time! Loved the resort, it was clean, never felt crowded and the beach was lovely. 95% of the staff were absolutely amazing, most of our disappointment was with the Spa staff, they spoke in their own language and were not very conversational with their guests. The food was great, in partiuclar the Italian dining room. One thing that stood out to me is that there were no vendors on the beach which made it much different than many of my experiences in the Carribean, it was wonderful not to be hassled. Truly enjoyed Montego Bay, can't wait to go back!

    At first I walked in and was kind of disappointed, my last trip being at a 5 star. But after a bit the Sunset Beach Resort grew on me, the staff were really nice, the food was really good, the rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. At the end of the trip I could say I did enjoy my time here, while nothing was above and beyond, at the same time nothing negatively impacted my vacation.

    Unique and diverse hotel catering to individuals, couples and families. I was exceptionally satisfied with the level of service received. The staff at the Sunset Beach Resort & Spa were very friendly/helpful and made you feel at home. What I truly enjoyed about this property is the fact that it has something for everyone. If you traveling as a family they have a nice selection of activities for children and teens as well as nightly entertainment with dancing and live shows. Food was exceptionally well and I highly recommend making reservations to La Bella Vita which showcases a 5 course Italian menu. The hotel is planning to undergo some renovations towards all suites and offer wifi access throughout the hotel including bedrooms. Sunset beach resort and & Spa has plenty of potential to increase their clientele. For the time being this is a great and reasonable value if you are looking for a comfortable, pleasant, relaxing, and fun getaway.

    The hotel room was clean but small, the bathtub had the paint all chipped off. The grounds were kept very clean but need a make over. Some days it was hard to get a cup for the drinks. And when you did they were very small (juice cups) so bring your own. The evening shows were basically non existent. The beaches were small and not very much sandy areas in the water. Great for snorkling but not so good for playing around. The staff was friendly everyone greeted you with a smile! If you are a smoker this may not be the resort for you. There are a couple of designated smoking areas. You can not smoke in your room or on the balcony! If you are caught there is a hefty fine! I feel you should be made aware of this before booking. The food was really good!!!

    I just returned from a two week stay at the Sunset Beach Resort Spa and waterpark with three other friends. Upon arrival we were informed that there was no double bed rooms left so we would have to spend the night in rooms with a King bed.They assured us that we would have the proper rooms early the next day. We spent all the next day waiting to get our rooms. I found some of the staff at the front desk to be very distracted and most of the time not very friendly..I can honestly say that in my 25 years of cruising and travelling to South America, Mexico and Cuba, anytime I had to deal with the front desk, was the worst that I have ever experienced. The rest of the hotel personel was great!!!! Not impressed with the evening entertainment at all!!!! Apparently they are trying to improve on that and it would be a definite asset. The food was excellent. There was a wonderful variety at each meal and after two weeks it was still enjoyable. I would say one of the best of all the places that I have vacationed.

    My wife, 11 year old son and I spent Jan 21-31 at this resort. We absolutely loved it and plan to return very soon. We stayed in tower B, two double beds, good air conditioning, flat screen tv with tons of channels, nice bathroom and very large balcony. The food was very good to excellent. Great jerk chicken, breakfasts were awesome with omelete / egg station, pancakes, bacon, sausage, potatoes etc. Always lots of selection. Hot foods kept hot and cold foods kept cold. Pasta station in evening was very good. Tried all three a la carte's, all were very good with good service. Book them early in your stay. Beach grille was very good, awesome jerk chicken, burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, etc. Waterpark was awesome, our son spent hours on the slides and in the lazy river. Had a "main pool" where zumba, beer olympics, etc was held daily. Had two other pools with a swim up bar between that were quieter. Resort was very nice, clean, grounds were well kept. The beach was raked clean by hand every morning. Water was clear, with sea grass not too far out. This is not the fault of the resort. Lots of people snorkeling. Four bars on the property, all served good drinks and will put as much alcohol as you want. Red Stripe and Red Stripe light on tap. Bartenders were all really friendly. Entertainment was very good. Steel drum band is not to be missed. Most shows were good, and they included the kids for many shows, which was nice. The kids all seemed to have a great time. This resort is geared toward families, and ours had a great time. There were quiet areas if you wanted them too. It is a 3 1/2*, but is much nicer than 4 or 4 1/2* resorts we have been to in the past. Overall had a great time. We don't often return to a resort, but will return here.

    Three of us stayed at the Sunset Beach Resort and Spa in January and had a great time!! Our room was directly across from the waterslides and although it wasn't luxurious by any stretch, it was clean and comfortable and suited our needs just fine. We spent most of our time at the swim up pools and found them to be very clean. We did tip occasionally but I didn't feel expected to at all. I'd say the beach was only okay - there's a long stretch of it, but it was a little rocky and narrow. We booked our a la cartes in advance by emailing the resort and that went off without a hitch. We ate at the Asian restaurant - fantastic!!!! Great service, great food - amazing!!! And also at the Italian restaurant - also very good! The service here was also great - we loved the little bar outside of the restaurant to have pre-dinner drinks as well. The only dissapointment that night was one of us ordered the lasagna and they didn't like it - but do you go to Jamaica expecting to have good lasagna - I hope not!! The rest of our portions were big enough to share that none of us left hungry!! The buffet was also very good, with pasta and omlette stations, and lots to choose from - I don't know who couldn't find something - and I'm totally a picky eater!! We didn't really watch the shows - tried a couple of nights, but wasn't really into them, so chose to leave and sit in the lobby. Each night there was a bus that took you to a bar off the resort - mostly Margarittaville. This was free and would also pick you up at 2 am to bring you home. I have to say, we felt completely safe on the hip strip, in the clubs and even stopped one night to pick up some jerk chicken roadside (best jerk chicken of our lives!!!) - we had a blast every night we went out! We were pleasantly surprised with this resort based on some of the other comments we'd read before going, but figured we could have fun no matter where we went - and we did!! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends or to return myself!

    Our first impression of the resort was not good as I booked back in February for November travel. I paid the extra to have a beach front cabana (which I highly recommend) and we were put in the tower with no explaination. When I went back to the front desk I was told there was a booking error & the cabana room that I reserved 9 months earlier was overbooked. I was not happy - would they have left me in the tower had I not gone back and asked?? After close to an hour of discussion with rude counter staff they took me to the guest services Manager who proceeded to tell me that they were not over booked but the room had been renovated and the repairs were not quite completed. ??? Anyway she ended up compensating us with extra a la carte meals. Our first night in the tower was not up to par as I could not unpack and we had to root through the suitcase to find swim suits, sandles, sunscreen.... inconvenient to say the least. We had to check out of our tower room the next morning which left us roomless for about 4 hours, another inconvenience. Now for the good. Once we got into our cabana room our vacation took a turn for the better. I strongly recommend the cabana rooms with a walk-out to the beach. The resort is huge and there is lots to do. My kids, 9 and 6, absolutely loved the water park and the kids club. Kids are signed into the kids club and you can feel safe as they must be signed out to leave. I felt very safe inside the resort as the resort is gated and I did see security out and about (but not overwhelming). Make sure to bring a white t-shirt for 'family t-dye'. Food is average. They have self serve fountain pop and ice cream. Anything you want to do within the resort, you go to recreation counter and ask. They will provide towels, golf clubs for mini putt, tennis rackets, ping pong rackets..... There is a washing machine & dryer but I suggest you bring detergent as the soap is $3, the softener is $3 and $5 to use machine.

    my stay at Sunset beach resort and waterpark was overall a pleasant one. The occasional activites provided were ok but i found myself looking for more beach activities that never came. most of the water activities were in the pool as the beach left a lot to be desired. venturing 2 feet out into the water would leave you mired in seaweed and mud. most of the guests spent their time in the pool was a very dissappinting considering that the beach is one of the main attraction in the Caribbean. The location of the hotel from major shopping areas was also not ideal. The hotel staff made up for any shortcomings that the holel presented. they were very courteous and helpful. the variety of food was great however if you are a late eater forget it as the restaurants would shut down by 9:00 pm. i would definitely go back.

    I wanted a quick get-away, we were only going for 4 days. This hotel was very close to the airport, which was great due to time constraints. My daughter was 8 at the time and this was the perfect resort for her; they had water slides, a water park with a pirate's ship and a lazy river. The beach, although small, was beautiful powder white sand and crystal clear waters. If you are looking for a quick, affordable family trip, I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

    A few WestJetters & myself went to Jamaica & got a good rate @ the Sunset! We were surprised at how nice the place was. The service was awesome! The employees all seemed to enjoy their job, which made the service so much better! The room was a very decent size for 3 women sharing. On the 2nd night, we got a free upgrate to Ocean View!! The food was always good! There was a wide variety to choose from & had the famous Jerk Chicken as an option for every meal!! Loved it!! The beach area was large enough but a little bit rocky. Rocks had washed up on the beach due to a hurricane elsewhere. The kids waterpark looked like they'd have a lot of fun. The resort had evening entertainment every night, & always included something for the kids! What really surprised us was the fact that the pool bar had already closed but 1 of the bartenders happened to come back to the bar & we jokingly asked for a few drinks & he actually went to the other bar, got us drinks & brought them to us, twice!!This resort also has their own photographers that walk around taking pictures of everybody & if you wished to purchase them, you could!! I would definitely recommend this resort to anybody looking for an affordable friends, family or couples getaway, right in Montego Bay!!

        Excellent location with the hotel right on the beach, we had the ocean view room with stunning views of the resort . Travelling with a 12 yr old & 16 yr old there was plenty of things to keep them entertained throughout our 2wk stay . The catering was good with plenty of food to choose from , although I would say if you dine later on in the evening some food was not replenished we found this was mainly with desserts . The staff work very hard to ensure a pleasant experience , my thanks must go to Derrick in the lobby & Tony on the entertainment bar , they treated us like family & always had a smile . The evening entertainment was good we especially liked the steel band on the Tuesday pirate theme night . The water park was excellent for the kids (& us adults ) , snorkelling is a must , the fish are very colourful we even spotted a sting ray from our balcony ! Sun loungers are plentiful no need to get up early , towels can be changed whenever you need . We would definitely recommend this resort and hopefully will be returning ourselves in the near future , once again thank you all the staff at sunset for our wonderfull holiday .

        Hello everyone I spent 8 days 7 nights and it was the best time my kids ever had on vacation. The beach, pool and waterpark were at our front door. The staff was nice to us. The food was delicious and we had a variety to choose from. I have to point out that Taj was the most professional and courteous waiter in all of sunset. He treated us like royalty. If you do visit ask for Taj and you will not be dissapointed. He is one of the nicest persons you will meet at sunset. Sunset is great for kids. S.D

        We just stayed at the Sunset for 2 horrible weeks. Worst vacation experience we have ever had. Usually we can try to make the best of were we are but my kids could wait to leave. The service was horrible. You spend most of your day waiting for something, clean towls, service, food, coffee... Nothing can be rated over a 2 star and very unclean. Unbelievably overall just a nightmare. Not waste your money or vacation comming here.

        Objective Review of Sunset Beach Resort

        Reviewed by Mark M(Greenwood, Indiana) on Aug 24, 2014

        This is my second trip to the Sunset Beach Resort this summer (business travel) and I just finished my third complete week at the resort counting both trips. I'll divide the review into categories. 1) View: I have an oceanfront room and have to give the view a 5/5. Beautiful blue, aqua and purple hues. Sunsets will be at about 11 o'clock looking out from balcony and are very impressive. Room: 2/5. Air conditioning works quite well. Sliding glass door lock is missing (even though sign on sliding glass door says to be sure to lock when not in use), balcony wall separating my room from the one next to it is rotted at the bottom. This is an older resort so bathrooms are small. Here is where it gets a little tricky: Wi-Fi is only guarranteed to work in the lobby. There are two towers in Sunset Beach Resort (unless you stay at the Oasis, which is an upgrade in room and service in a separate part of the resort). Tower A does not get a Wi-Fi signal at all. However, in Tower B I can get a Wi-Fi signal up to the 8th floor (Haven't been higher up than that but I would not push it--the Wi-Fi speed slows down the higher you go). So if you want Wi-Fi (and it is $30US per week) you want to be in Tower B. The sweet spot for me Is the 6th to 8th floor in B. I am high enough that I am over the palm trees and have an unobstructed view of the ocean but can still get a signal. 3) Food: 3/5. In my opinion breakfast is by far their best meal. Lunch and dinner are OK. Typically everything is served as an open air-buffet unless you get dinner reservations for the Chinese and Italian meals (still open air). Tip: Get to lunch and dinner early. After the first 90-120 minutes or so they start running out of selections or dessert varieties. I don't have children with me but I think they can do more to appeal to children. The lunch and dinner buffets feature pasta/pasta sauce and french fries but not a lot more than that for the kids. There is a grille with basic fast food; you'll note in some of the past reviews that it is service challenged at times. One may wait in line for a long period of time or find out that some of the selections (especially ice cream) are not available. There is a new operations manager and he seems determined to improve the service. 4) Housekeeping/laundry service: 1/5. When I was here in June my housekeeping/laundry experience was outstanding. But I've had an issue every day this week. I didn't get any towels or washcloths today. Yesterday the pool towel service was out of towels the two times I visited the towel hut. Tonight I checked out a pool towel in case I don't get any bath towels tonight for tomorrow morning. 5) Facility: 4/5. They have four pools including a huge children's pool. All looked very clean this weekend; the adult pool has a swim up bar. 4 tennis courts in good condition. Lobby is nice. Note: There is a bar just off of Tower B in the lobby for those of you taking my Tower B recommendation. There is an area that serves coffee and hot water for tea 24/7. 6) Bar service: 4/5. The front desk and bartenders more than any of the service staff here get it. The bar doesn't have a huge selection but the bartenders aim to please. Example: The draft beer isn't always that cold so one of the bartenders got me a 5 bottles of Red Stripe to put in a cooler for the weekend. So that is my take on the resort and the components that make up the stay here.

        I visited this resort last June and all I can say is you get what you pay for. This review is very delayed but I always read multiple reviews before trips and its always difficult choosing which ones to believe because lets be honest, some people are just very picky. So I wanted to share my honest (not picky) opinion. The food definitely needs improvement, the snack bar was very limited. The entertainment at the pools could also be improved. The slides at the waterpark have ridges in them and hurt your back as you slide down them. I went down each slide once and didn't go down them again the whole trip. The beach was beautiful and the lazy river was very relaxing. I suggest bringing a large mug with you to drink out of. The cups provided are very small. If you go to the bar they will make you two drinks and you can pour them into your mug. The vacation was still enjoyable because how can you possibly not enjoy waking up to to beach for a week? The wifi was only available in the lobby which was pretty disappointing and you had to pay for it. All in all, you are getting what you pay for.
