Neighborhood
With its location right on the northern tip of the stunning Montego Bay peninsula, guests of the Sunset Beach are surrounded by white sands and translucent Caribbean waters, with the Caribbean Sea to the west, and the Montego River to the east. The true beauty of this peninsula is its near-proximity to a secluded desert island. Just a short jaunt will have you back to civilization, with shopping at the City Center Plaza, and history for the exploring at the remains of the 19th century Montego Bay Railway Station. Stay in the neighborhood for scuba diving and glass-bottom boats, plus a Summer Adventure Camp program for kids.

Getaway weekend

Great value. Excellent staff. A quality option in the shadow of a luxury neighbor but definitely holding it's own. I would rate the hotel overall 3.5. But the staff is definitely a 5. Exemplifies why Montego Bay is known as The Friendly City and the tourism capital of Jamaica

Four Day Vacay

This hotel was average, and I probably will explore other options when planning future trips to Jamaica. I will list some likes and dislikes. Likes: it was nice being greeted with a cool tasty punch when checking in. Our bags were promptly taken to our rooms. We had a nice view of the Caribbean from our balcony (complimentary upgrade) . We thoroughly enjoyed the onsite paddle boats and kayaks which we took advantage of daily. There was always plenty of seating available in front of the water. There were plenty of pools to enjoy with doughnut floats provided. Our teenage sons enjoyed the two water slides. We enjoyed the main buffet as it had a variety if food choices at each meal. When the buffet wasn't open, the grill was available for tasty treats. Dislikes: I had read online reviews about the resort being outdated and I see now that they were all true. Upon first entering the lobby, it appears that the hotel has a more modern flair. Upon leaving the lobby to head to the elevator, it becomes obvious that the lobby has received more attention than other areas. The elevators are slow. Upon reaching our floor, I noticed that there were no security cameras in view which concerned me. There were also no ice machines/vending machines around. We were disappointed with the rooms: the doors would not close securely, it was difficult to keep the ac on a comfort temperature (either too hot or too cold), there was no microwave or refrigerator in the room, and no comfortable seating other than the bed. These are minimal things that have been available to us at other resorts. There also was no room service which we knew about ahead of time. The bathroom was very outdated; we had trouble getting hot water for the shower, reported it, it was not fixed. The teen center also was never open when my sons would go and check. Because I enjoyed staying in a hotel that was literally right besides the water and loved the entertainment, I truly did have a relaxing vacation. My husband on the other hand was bothered more by the things that I mentioned in the "dislikes" section. So, if you are one of those people who must have those things in order to enjoy yourself, than this hotel is not for you.

Vacation

Staff was very courteous, pleasant and helpful overall excellent. We were upgraded to a better room. The maids did an awesome job. We were treated like family. The food was great most time. I would recommend that they prepare more low sodium meals. The entertainment can be improved by having a larger variety. It was a bit monotonous.

Jamaica 2014 trip

The place was okay for the novice traveler. The staff was friendly but not outgoing as other resorts tend to be. I would never go there without children. The place is kid friendly and has little for adults. The entertainment staff is below average. The entertainment staff upset me off by staying on the pool table for two hours without regards for paying just. The Bar tending staff was excellent and very diligent. Overall it was a little pricey for what we got in return. I have been to Jamaica eight times and I will continue to go back but I will look for other resorts to patronize. I would recommend the resort for families only.

Family Vacation

My family and I stayed at the resort for a week in two rooms. I called two weeks in advance to request two double rooms and was promised this but when I arrive I received a king room and a double. When I asked the front desk about this the woman stated that there was no record of my call and refused to change the room. Also, the resort had no free wi-fi and the rates were way too high.

EXcellent Family Getaway

Staff is warm and loving. The kids will love the water park, lots of fun, especially the children entertainment centers for bot kids and teens. Food was awsome, a great blend of the caribbean as well as some American classics. Entertainment is great, every night has a nice event for the roster.If u have small children, ground floor rooms are the best as u have easier access to all facilities. Would definitley do again.

Amazing Stay

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here and we stayed for a week. The food was surprisingly good. The a/c in the room worked really well. The bathroom in the hotel room was a bit outdated but in good shape. The rooms were clean with the exception of the floors which are tile and seemed to be a bit dirty. We didn't spend much time in the rooms so it didn't really matter. There was so many activities during the day and at night the resort always had something going on (definitely check the board near the buffet for events everyday). The staff couldn't be any friendlier and they were always helpful and courteous. The resort was very clean and much larger than I expected. We went snorkeling everyday; the coral was amazing. We got massages on the beach (decently priced) at susnet which was very romantic. We would definitely come back!

Wedding Vacation

Negatives: The rooms were older. Also, the first night there, the main dinner location was closed so in order to eat, we had to go off the resort. The other restaurants on the resort needed reservations that had to be during the morning hours. I didn't check in until mid afternoon so guess what. You got it, no food for me. Positives: There were lots of activities to do throughout the day. It was very family oriented. When the food was available, it was very tasty.
