We stayed at Sunset Beach Resort from Oct 2nd to Oct 8th, and our experience was nothing short excellent.
On arrival we were warmly greeted by the staff, and check in was quick and simple, and they even provided a flower for your hair which we both thought was a nice touch.
Walking into our room, which as it happened was the very last room, closest to the beach room (278) which was great, you are struck by the beautiful surroundings and well kept gardens.
The air con was already on in our room so our room was pre-cooled....another nice touch....and the room (which was a sunset 1 from memory...the dearer room) was simple yet extremely functional and everything was clean and tidy....not a sign of things like cockroaches which was one of my fears. I saw a total of 3 ants crawling on the floor the whole time, so bugs seemed to be well under control.
The beach was less than a minutes walk away and the once again was clean and also safe. The water was SO WARM !
Lots of shade under palm trees if you wanted it too.
The thing we were both impresses by was the staff were so helpful and keen to chat and made sure you got a good deal when hiring scooters or getting taxis. They always greeted you by name and with a smile.
Ok, the rooms don’t have satellite TV or internet connectivity which I was a bit apprehensive about at first, but after a day of sitting on the beach, actually the internet didn’t seem all that important, and after a bit of channel hoping you might come across some English spoken TV programs, or as I did brought a couple "DVD's" and watched them, that is if you are not out shopping.
Which brings me to the next plus for the Sunset Beach Resort...LOCATION !
This resort is in a great location for food and shopping, and like most places in this part of the world, they are open late...or till it rains to heavy :-)
The breakfast was to be honest a bit simple. Eggs, Toast, Cereal, but actually, this was ample. Once again friendly staff greeted you and brought a class of juice to your table. You can sit inside or outside of the breakfast area.
To be honest, the staff at the Sunset gave a better service than some of the 5 start hotels I have stayed at.
I can’t comment n the Sunset II rooms, but no one seemed to be complaining, and the place seemed pretty full most of the time we were there.
Would I say here again? Absolutely no question, Yes I would.
But like I say, its not 5 start, I would put it about 4 stars (just) but value for money, I doubt it can be beaten.
