Sunset at the Palms
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My wife and I stayed at Sunset at the Palms during March of 2017. As we entered the airport, we were greeted by a young lady holding a sign with our name upon it. It was the MoBay arrival service which comes with your booking at SATP. We were quickly whisked around the long lines and breezed through customs. We were taken to the lounge where our bags were watched while we enjoyed a cocktail and an appetizer while our transportation was arranged. Thank you for this wonderful service SATP! We always book and pay for MoBay departure service as the airport is quite crazy during March break departures but this was our first time with the arrival service. We were quickly on our way to Negril. We consider ourselves JaCadians as this was our 8th trip to Jamaica. We enjoyed our stay at SATP and here is a breakdown of our experience. Location: SATP is not actually in Negril, it is in Bloody Bay, 5-10 minutes before Negril. We have stayed in both locations and actually prefer Bloody Bay, same type of beach, less hassle! Staff: In all of our travels throughout the Caribbean, this was by far the most exceptional staff we have encountered. Everyone was pleasant and accommodating! Rooms: We had a treetop deluxe room in the 600's. The bed was comfortable. The room was kept tidy. The air conditioning worked well. The minibar was stocked with canned beer and bottled beverages. The room safe was operated by a key, a keypad would be better. My only dissatisfaction with the room was the lack of noise insulation. The windows are covered with a wooden slat style blind with a screen on the outside so you could hear outside noises constantly, the chirping tree frogs (very loud) all night long and early morning birds. It was serene at times, bothersome at others. Our room had a wonderful balcony! Food: My wife, a fine-food restaurant manager, is a "foodie" and nothing will ruin her vacation more than poor food and service. The food and service in the restaurants was excellent. We ate mostly at the buffet for breakfast and dinner. We never had a single bad meal. Entertainment: SATP has a nice little piano bar and most nights had entertainment in the pool bar. We had a lot of fun. The Grounds: SATP is the only resort we have stayed in that was across the street from the beach. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. There always seemed to be a groundskeeper somewhere working on keeping the resort beautifully manicured. Hummingbirds were everywhere and I even crossed paths with a goat one afternoon trailing 8' of rope behind her. Had I known that the rooms on one side of the resort had a beautiful mountain view, I would book one! The view was beautiful! The Pool: The pool is quite nice, with a swim-up bar and plenty of loungers. There is a very nice hot tub as well. The Beach: You must leave the resort and cross the street with the aid of a crossing guard to go to the beautiful beach on Bloody Bay. It is exactly 275 paces from the lobby till your toes are in the sand. To us this was not a problem at all! The beach here is every bit as nice as 7 mile beach. You can walk right into the water without water shoes and not have to worry about your feet. SATP has a beautiful spot on the beach with a nice bar, a lunch bar and attendants who will set you up with a lounger and always seem to be keeping an eye on things. You experience 2 different things when walking the beach. Go to the left if you seek a nice walk in relative solitude. It is hassle- free, unlike the 7 mile beach where you are constantly bombarded by vendors who don't easily take no for an answer. Walk to the right if you wish to visit the vendors and do some shopping. They will definitely seek your attention. Some are more aggressive than others. The Spirits: I have stayed at many all-inclusive hotels where they definitely water down the drinks. Not so at SATP! The beer served at the bars is red stripe draught. I would have preferred a bottle or can. The Appleton Estate signature rum was available but I could not find a bottle of Appleton Reserve (my favourite) anywhere. Bugs: This year was the worst year I have encountered with bugs in Jamaica. They call them noseeums because you rarely see these flea-sand sized little bugs. You don't realise you have been bitten until little red itchy bumps appear. Bug spray did little to deter them. Overall: Sunset At The Palms is a wonderful all-inclusive with an excellent staff and wonderful food located on an amazing beach!
We just left today and are very sad to go. The resort is peaceful and serene. The staff is amazing, everyone went out of their way to insure we had a great time. If you want to relax this is the place to be. We will go back!
We had a wonderful stay at SATP. Food was amazing, and the grounds were just absolutely lovely. Best of all were the staff. I have never seen a happier always smiling staff anywhere. Always asking if they can help, or if we needed anything. We would just love to go back and never leave.
My husband and I had an incredible honeymoon here!!! We met so many wonderful tourists, but also met so many incredible employees! Kirk is the best bartender, and definitely ask Tashea to get you a beef patty with cheese and coco bread :) We also loved the omelettes that Merna made and had a blast joking around with Kerry at the beach and pool bar. Ask for Sinclair if you want to have the best driver around for your excursions!!! Everyone is amazing and so helpful and you will be so relaxed at Sunset at the Palms!
This was our second visit to SATP. We are planning a return trip in 2018. It is a great adults only property. We had a very relaxing week. The staff is very good. The beach is beautiful along with the grounds of the resort. The food is good. We tried all the restaurants. I liked being able to make our dinner reservations by email before we arrived at the resort. Very convenient! On our first visit to the resort in 2015, they had someone making fresh fruit smoothies at breakfast. I missed those during this visit. We have stayed at another resort on Seven Mile Beach several times but prefer this resort on Bloody Bay.
