Sunset at the Palms
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Great resort. This was my second trip to Sunset. It’s everything I want in a low-keyed, relaxing vacation. We were upgraded to a two story suite. King size bed and full bath on the top floor. Two double beds that can be used as couches, mini-bar and full bath on the bottom floor. Both floors had porches. The top porch had a rope hammock and was great when it rained one afternoon. We didn’t mind the rain at all because the suite and porch were so nice. The food was excellent, although a little repetitive, which is true of most all-inclusive resorts. The beach is on the other side of the road to Negril but a crossing guard is there all day and it’s a short walk so it’s not a problem at all. Great beach bar and grill. The beach itself is great if you don’t mind a few people trying to sell you stuff all day. I didn’t feel harassed at all as I did when we were on the Seven Mile Beach in Negril years ago. Nice pool and pool bar. There’s not much to do at night. They have entertainment at the pool bar but that’s it. It’s perfect for partying at the beach all day then having dinner and turning in early. The only complaint I have is they only have instant coffee in the rooms. The coffee bar is great but I really want to have some Blue Mountain Coffee in my room first thing in the morning. I will definitely go back to Sunset.
Very enjoyable trip. Stayed in room 717, the size and location (near the back) were great. Had a bit of rain one day and spent the time reading and relaxing on the porch. The staff is beyond nice and very helpful at all times. The beach is excellent, very clean with all the necessities and very friendly staff there also. The food was mostly very good, we enjoyed the differences in dining from an American type buffet. The Jamaican foods were quite good, Jerk Chicken in both the restaurant and beach grill were delish. All the fish dishes (snapper mostly) were very good. The facilities, gym and spa are lovely, we took a “yoga” class that was a nice stretch with a very helpful instructor. Would highly recommend Sunset at the Palms. This was not our first trip there and we will surely return again in the future.
Great place, superb service, tree houses are amazing. Adult only experience a bonus. Don't be afraid of the beach across the street, it's private, great service, anything from beach chairs to food to drinks. Property looks like a jungle with plenty of hummingbirds. One of my favourite places jus far, and we are well travelled. Loved the jerk everything...food. A definite competitor to Mexican food.
We chose to stay at SATP because of its size (small) and because it was adults only. We don't usually do all inclusives, but we were only in Negril for 3 nights and wanted the convenience. We were in room 106, which was towards the back of the resort. It was clean and spacious, and the fan and A/C worked well. The mini fridge was also stocked with bottled water, some soda and Red Stripe.Things we loved:1) The SATP section of the beach was by far the cleanest on Bloody Bay while we were there (the week before Christmas). We walked the entire length of the beach and the sections in front of Couples was the worst for seaweed and garbage.2) The coffee bar - we appreciate quality coffee and americanos here were great.3) Small size of the resort allowed us to get to know some of the other guests.4) Spa attendants were fantastic - she got all the knots out of my back muscles!5) We felt very welcomed when we first arrived - literally every staff member said welcome or hello.Things we didn't love as much:1) Despite our room location, we could hear traffic from the road at night. The property isn't set that far back from the road, so this is likely an issue for most of the rooms. We weren't too bothered by it though.2) The late afternoon fogging of the property. I understand the thinking behind it, but it's really unpleasant to be around while it's happening. I'd avoid the pool area at this time.3) Wifi didn't work in our room the first half of our stay, but it was fixed and mostly worked after that.Things we could have done without:1) House wine offerings were terrible, even the sparkling. I'm more fussy than my husband, but even he couldn't stomach the wine offerings. We aren't big cocktail fans, so we ended up drinking rum and Red Stripe most of the time, which got a bit tiring. The other option was to pay for upgraded bottles, which we didn't do.2) Questionable food quality at the buffet - we had the seafood feast at the buffet on our final night and I ended with a very upset stomach later that evening, which carried on throughout the next day. My husband also had issues after eating at the breakfast buffet the following morning so not sure what it was (we only ate food at the resort during our stay so it wasn't outside food). I usually expect stomach issues to come up when eating at a resort buffet, but the timing was terrible as we had to travel home that afternoon.SATP is located in a beautiful part of Negril and we really enjoyed the beach, but unfortunately our last evening/day was spoiled and so I can't say that we would stay here again.
This is a very small resort. Pros; the staff and guests. You really get to meet and enjoy everyone there, it is very social, but in a laid back, relaxed way. Cons; the FOOD. Very sub-par. I may have actually lost weight due to the below average quality and execution of the food.
