Fine hotel located near town, not in town. You will need a cab to get anywhere as you would if you stayed at its main rival, the Grand Palm aka Waldorf Ambassador. But unlike the Grand Palm, the Sun does have taxi cabs at the ready on the property.
The Grand Palm is further out but it is a much nicer facility. I stayed at both during the same week. Other reviews of the Sun will tell you about the very good buffet, the fine restaurant and the helpful staff. All true. But the hotel, although only two stories, has no elevators. I am 6'2" tall and my feet hung over the end of the bed up to mid calf. They must custom order king size beds - extra short. I had to unplug lights in order to obtain an outlet to charge my toys. Those are the negatives that I experience, but overall I would recommend the Sun if you don't want to pay the premium that the Grand Palm charges.
