yes the location is a bit out of the way (about a 40 minute ride to hat drin that costs 200 baht) but actually that works to sunset cove's advantage.. you don't get the craziness of the main town and the hotel is just ideal for lazing about all day :)
the service was superb and is really the main reason why i'd recommend this hotel. besides providing free insect repellant/suntan lotion/bananas and allowing you to change your towels anytime, they even baked cashew nut cookies that they put out for guests to take anytime.. we were there during loy krathong and they happily provided us with lanterns and flower offerings so we could partake in the festival..
breakfast was super yummy (go for the pancakes) and the staff were very accomodating.. although brekkie officially ended at 10 am, the staff happily offered to make our breakfasts up till noon and we didn't even have to ask them!
make a point to have some meals in at the resort too, cos you know they take pride in their food.. try the glass noodle seafood salad - we ordered three, one after another after we heard each other rave about it!
the free DVDs are great for those lazy rainy days but we spent most of our time chilling by the pool and enjoying the resort, only venturing out for the parties at night..
honestly i'd come back just for this resort alone, this is how much it impressed me! great service at a very reasonable price, what more can you ask for?
