We arrived here on the second week of our honeymoon booking into the seaview cottage by the pool room A1.

The pros:
- Great views especially at sunset
- Close to Haad Yao diving school who were brillaint and absolutely made our holiday

Cons:
- There are few places to eat or even go on an evening and if you do venture out it's down a unlit road (plus it is very hilly)
- We had an open air shower which sounds great on paper...it is not there were all sorts of bugs and a wasp nest right outside which meant you had to speed shower.
- You have to up lock our apartment with a yale lock and padlock which was very difficult when the light (which you had to put your key in) was through the lounge area into the bedroom.
- Breakfast was ok
- Very impersonal staff who were not very helpful

We booked for 5 nights but left after 3 and moved to Cookies salad resort which is 10 times better with amazing service, great food and generally a much better atmosphere.

Was the second time we staid at Sunset Cove, first time was in 2006. We were afraid that our first visit never could be beaten, but we had a very great second time and weren't dissapointed in any way. Great place, great staff, great pool, great food! We will definitely come again.

Sunset Cove is set on Chao Phao beach on the west coast, so a fairly quiet location well away from the full mooners. That said, we were easily able to get around the island by Taxi and Taxi boat.

Sunset Cove is made of approx 20 bungalows. We stayed in one on the beach front, which we felt was worth booking in advance for. Each bungalow has a small lounge with fridge, tv and dvd player, lovely bedroom with air conditioning and King Size bed, bathroom with both a shower barrel bath tub and open air shower. Rooms are very clean and insect free. Outside, the pool, dining areas and garden are kept in excellent condition.

You could easily spend a week here lounging by the pool, however the staff at Sunset cove made it really easy to get out and explore koh phangan. Whatever we asked for be it taxi's, kayaks, Elephant trekking or boat trips were swiftly arranged over breakfast.

Food is fantastic here - although we only ate Thai during our stay as it was so good.

As the name suggests Chao Phao beach is perfect for Sunsets, we got a couple during our stay, which are post card perfect. During May, the tide is quiet low around koh phangan which made the beach less ideal for swimming as it's shallow for a long way out, but as this is very common of many of the beaches at that time, don't be put off!

We've just come back from Thailand this week and this was one of our first places we stayed. We only stayed for two nights before moving up to the east, but we thought it was really lovely. The rooms were very roomy with a great out door shower room. there were a few mozzies though, which we found a lot in the west of the island rather than the east. The food was ok, a bit toned down, but there are a few places along the beach which do a good hot thai if your into it. I loved the gardens, with lots of opportunities to see butterflies and some amazing long tailed birds.
The staff were very helpful and service minded which I must say outshone Cookies Salad where we stayed on our way back down the island. On your well earned break you just don't want to have to worry about much, kick back and have some down time, which we didn't get at Cookies but got in truckfuls at Sunset cove - oh yes and the sunsets were divine!!!!!!!!!!!

My wife and I spent 6 days relaxing by the pool, eating great food and catching up on some much needed rest. We couldn't have found a better place than Sunset Cove. The staff were great, nothing was too much trouble. The bungalow we had fronted on to the pool and we could open up the bi-fold doors to watch the amazing sunsets. There is a torture chamber (gymnasium) you can use if thats you bent, and kyaks and mountain bikes to explore with. They also have a large library of DVD's if you want to catch up on some new releases. Along the beach, either side, there are bars and restaraunts and just down the road (walking distance ), a general store, laundry lady and car/motor scooter hire. All in all, a great place to laze around and relax!! We will be back soon!!! Graham & Alison.
