On a very cool beach, within walking distance of Atlantis, but just far away enough that the beach doesn't get crowded. Because of the Atlantis crowd, Sunrise is at the tail end of the peddlers. They're often insistent, but mostly polite. Rent jet skis, buy Cuban cigars, drink rum drinks all day for $20, etc.
We stayed in an efficiency unit; two floors, small kitchen, 1.5 baths, small patio. Nice pool, and p0retty good bar/restaurant, Viola's on premises. Cost was reasonable. Upscale dining nearby. Cab is $3 per person to hit downtown Nassau. Staff very friendly. If you have a group, inquire about the villas, on the beach, with a big deck, grill, etc.
I'd stay there again.
Cheers!

We just got back from our trip to the Bahamas and had a great vacation. Our group was there for a birthday weekend getaway. We stayed in the 5 bedroom Villa located right on the edge of the water, which housed 11 out of the 13 people in our group. Not only did we enjoy our villa but even before arriving to the island we worked with Carla, one of the concierge at the hotel/ villa rental, who helped with breakfasts, beach rentals and all the details down to putting together gift bags and decorations for the villa it's self. She was wonderful and definitely helped make our stay relaxing and move smoothly with such a large group.

Room Tip: The 5 bedroom Villa can easily sleep 12 people and more if you are willing to sleep on a pull out co...

Our Family was on a recent vacation at Sunrise Beach Villas and unfortunately we must have had the wrong villa. The villa was ok but the amenities in it were not comfortable and dated. The bathrooms were filthy and not made for anyone over 100 pounds. They also ran a special after our booking and did not honor it which was disappointing. Additionally, the pools were not very clean, they were full of sand and debris and i never saw anyone cleaning them. WIFI is $11 a day per device and it was ultra slow. The beach is very nice and fun to people watch when the crusiers come in from Nassau. My advice is to spend a little more and get a villa at harborside in Atlantis and you will be very happy.

This is a very comfortable, clean, welcoming place to spend a few days recovering from The World's Longest Winter. From reception to checkout, the service was friendly and cheerful. Viola's (the on-site restaurant/bar) is a funky little spot, with something doing every night. The food is better than you might expect, and the atmosphere is laid-back. The poolside villas are next door to VIola's so if you are looking for a quiet room, ask for one nearer the beach, as the fun never stops at Viola's. The villa itself is fine for one or two people. You enter through a little patio with table and chairs and a barbecue grill to a compact ground floor with comfortable seating, a dining table and chairs, a well-equipped galley kitchen, and a half bath. Upstairs is a large bedroom and full bath, big closet, and, in some units, a balcony with chairs. All in all, a good value for the money.

Now to the "cons": To get to the bedroom, one must navigate the spiral staircase designed by Satan himself. It is narrow and steep, so getting your suitcase up and down is a challenge; if you partake of Viola's adult beverages, you might want to sleep on the sofa rather than attempt the ascent of Staircase Everest. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, a short walk from the pool and down a flight of steps. Unfortunately, it is adjacent to the public beach access and every morning at 11:30, the cruise ship denizens arrive in their thousands. Nothing much the hotel can do about that, but it does detract somewhat from the relaxing beach experience. Tip: when you come off the staircase, continue walking to your right. The cruisers did not venture much farther than the steps, so it is quieter and less crowded over there.

Is this a perfect place? No, especially if you are looking for a romantic interlude. Would I go back there and/or recommend it to a friend? Definitely. Get into the island vibe and go with the flow, and you'll enjoy Sunrise Beach Club and Villas.

Room Tip: Villas near the pool are also near the restaurant/bar/nightclub. Villas nearer the beach will be qui...

We booked our Villa through the front desk, through Carla. Carla is absolutely wonderful. She took the best care of me and my family. She is such a sweetheart. She made sure everything was perfect. Our Villa was right next to the bar which was fine. We could sit on our patio and watch the kids swim. We met so many young families with kids which was a blast for both us and our kids. The local people are very very kind and love kids. We also had to visit the ER with our son who needed stiches on his chin. The doctor was AMAZING...better bed side manors than doctors in the states. In the evening we walked to Atlantis and walked the property and ate dinner. Very easy walk and perfect for young kids...they can get out and walk too. Another recommendation is to eat lunch of dinner at the One and Only next door...best food we found. Expensive...but worth every penny. Every where we want was kid friendly...even The One and Only. We have a 2 year old and a 4 year old. Paradise Island is amazing. Check out Blue Lagoon....perfect for young kids to swim in the water. We heart Nassau and the locals......wonderful vacation. THANKS CARLA...you are a superstar!!!!

We just got back from a 6 day/5 night stay in villa 12A (independently owned by John FItzsimmons), traveling with 4 adults and 2 children (ages 7 and 10).

Since we knew we were going to take advantage of the kitchen and grill, we brought MANY items in a checked bag that would hold up well during the flight (condiments, cereal, snack bars, pancake mix, syrup) and also had our taxi driver take us from the airport to the grocery store, then the villa. The posted rate at the airport to arrive at Sunrise is $32, but that is estimated for 2 passengers. We had 6, added a few miles for the grocery trip, and also had the driver wait approximately 20 minutes while we shopped (which he volunteered to do) and paid a total of $65. Be prepared to spend a LOT pretty much everywhere you go on food; a gallon of milk was around $9, and a bag of chips $8, etc.

The Sunrise grounds are absolutely beautiful, well maintained, and staffed by very friendly employees who make a point to know where you are staying and actively keep out those who might wander in. Unit 12A was wonderful with one exception: advertised that it sleeps 6, with two rooms (one king bed, one room with two twin beds) and a sleeper couch...but the sleeper couch is pretty horrendous. We are all pretty low-key people, but no one in our group was able to sleep on it, which made for some interesting sleeping arrangements...two kids squished in one bed, my husband sleeping on the living floor on cushions he pulled off the couch. We tried everything we could think of to make that couch work, but no luck. It wasn't a huge deal, but a truly sleepable pull out couch would have made the accommodations perfect.

The kitchen was well equipped to prepare & serve all our meals (plenty of glasses, plates, saucepans, utensils, etc) and the two bathrooms, one with an amazing shower, were perfect for our group.

The pools were very quiet and we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The beach was gorgeous, and while it did pick up a little during peak cruise ship port times (10-4) it was still very quiet and not the rowdy spring break type of crowd. Honestly, if you walk down the beach about 30 yards, it was very sparsely populated. Mornings and dinnertime on the beach was pretty much deserted. During those peak times, there are a few vendors who ask you to try the jetskis and a woman 2-3 days was there asking about hair braiding, but not a single one was pushy or made anyone feel rude for turning them down.

Atlantis is a quick walk (though Atlantis itself is HUGE and you will walk double or triple the length just walking through those grounds) and interesting to see, but after the tranquility of Sunrise, I was so glad we did not choose to stay there.

One thing to be aware of: As the renter from an independent owner, you will not have access to the laundry facility unless you get permission from Sunrise, which to hear other visitors was a hit or miss situation; extra towels are not given out, and they sort of frowned on us getting our large water jug from the room filled (all rooms have them, and it costs $6.50 to get them filled). Also, our grill ran out of propane mid-week and they were unable to help us, but John was quick to respond to an email and we did get the steaks going in no time.

Room Tip: If you are truly sleeping 6, go for a 3 bedroom. We will next time. :)

I found this property while seeking an affordable Spring Break property for 2 Adults, 2 teenagers an adult child. I was looking at the VRBO website, and could not get satisfactory responses from the owners, so I called the front desk of Sunrise Beach Club directly. They explained that some of the condo units are rented by the owners themselves, and that the hotel manages others. I booked a two bedroom condo with them at that point. I was given an "all In" price to include all fees and taxes. When we checked out, the price had not changed, other than local phone calls we made. Sometimes, at similar properties, we have had unpleasant "surprises" at checkout.

We pre-arranged transportation from the airport. We were greeted by the driver with our name on a sign, and were at Sunrise in about 30 minutes. About 15 miles, 5 people, $50.00 - not too bad. I would suggest that one find a taxi driver that one likes and trusts, and stick with him throughout your trip. There are plenty of scams with the fares.

Check in was easy and pleasant. We were addressed by name then, and throughout the stay. We were asked to leave a $20 CASH deposit for each key issued, and to sign-out beach towels. There are no valets, but the walk was short.

The unit, 7A, was as advertised, and matched the description and photos shown on the property website. There were a few minor issues with a noisy ceiling fan, a couple of inoperative AC outlets, and a noisy AC unit outside the master bedroom. The furniture and fixtures were dated and well-worn, but for a family of Spring Breakers it was perfect. We didn't feel we could do much damage.

The pools were as beautiful as they appear on the property website. There are two. They were cleaned and maintained each morning. They were quiet and under-utilized during our stay.

Housekeeping was excellent. I understand it is optional to have them come every day, versus one time only at checkout. I highly recommend the daily routine. There will likely be unavoidable tracked-in sand and dirty towels. There was no in-suite laundry equipment. The only option was the laundromat which was available to guests only between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM only. Fair warning, if you expect to do laundry during your trip.

The beach area is very beautiful, but was very crowded as well. With Spring Break kids and beach vendors passing directly by the property via a fenced public-access corridor, it can get a bit noisy at times as well. Our kids loved the crowds; I, personally, do not. But, I am also not much of a "beach person", and am content with a quiet balcony and/or pool.

The Atlantis resort is a very short walk. There are plenty of dining choices there, but bring a lot of money! If you want to walk into Nassau, bring good walking shoes. Depending on your comfort level, it is 1 to 3 miles to walk over the bridges and into Nassau proper. There is a ferry from the base of the Paradise Island exit bridge over to the cruise ship docks about every 30 minutes until 5:30 PM. It was $4.00 per person, each way. That gets one into downtown Nassau and the Straw Market area.

Groceries are a bit of a challenge while at Sunrise Beach Club. One can take a cab, but the fare for them to transport and wait seemed too high. After the first trip at $45.00 cab fare, we opted to walk about 1.5 miles round-trip to the local grocery/convenience store. Warning! Most grocers close at 5:00 PM.

Viola's Restaurant and Bar is on-property at Sunrise. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. Service was a bit slow, but we Americans are an impatient lot sometimes. Breakfast lunch and dinner were served with live entertainment on certain nights.

In summary, the staff were friendly and attentive. The price was very reasonable for the season. Unit 7A was, for the most part, clean and comfortable. In the future, I might seek a unit deeper into the complex to avoid public access noise, and a better beach view.

Room Tip: I would try for an upstairs (second floor) unit. The marble floors, plus our noisy kids, probably an...
