    Loved its simplicity- not commercial, quiet, stunning location and wonderful, friendly staff. Delicious food as well.

    Nothing except maybe the bed, 2 doubles pushed together with egg crate. It could have been more comfortable.

    The two large and deep pools in proportion to the number of overall resort size, and beautiful garden surroundings make it an excellent place to relax and unwind.

    Some improvements to the blinds could make the rooms more sound proof to keep out noises of roosters and guests that don't know how to keep their voices down outside when it's dark.

    This is our 3rd stay at the Sunset over the last 8 years and we'll keep coming back as we love it. The relaxing atmosphere, cleanliness, beautiful gardens, and fantastic pools make it the perfect place to enjoy and unwind. This we we tried another resort but only lasted two days before cancelling and booking into the sunset. The extra cost was worth it. Continental Breakfast was good with fresh local fruit and fruit salad every day.

    The roosters....But that's part of life in the Cooks and you get used to them!! Maintenance on the metal window shades would help.

    Despite a few cons, we all loved staying at this hotel and would recommend others to stay here. The beach outside the resort is probably one of the nicest that we saw on the island and felt very private. If you want to relax undisturbed on a hammock then this is the right place. The two pools were good sizes and very clean. The whole resort felt very well maintained. We were very impressed with the standard and amenities of our rooms in the pool side villas. The quality of food in the restaurant (a la carte) was also very good (although breakfast is quite standard) - we also found the staff in the restaurant very friendly!

    Unfortunately we found a couple of the staff on reception to be quite unfriendly and unhelpful when we had questions about activities on the island. We didn't have the best check in experience as we had to wait over an hour for our transfer (knowing this we would have got a taxi which works out the same price). We stayed at Sunset over Christmas, and it was a shame that more effort wasn't made around the hotel to put it in the Christmas spirit (E.g Christmas songs/ decorations on Xmas day, or even a special morning breakfast would have been a nice touch). The pool bar was also unstaffed the whole time we were there.
