We were there in 2015. The location is perfect and the people super friendly. The beach is a dream!!! I never had such a beautiful experience in my life. Dear Hotel staff, thanks for everything! We will always keep the place, the people and the fine dishes in our hearts. ❤

Just as advertised and even better!!

We had such a good time at the sunset! The private beach was great watching the sunset every night, we loved the theme nights, the food was wonderful, except not a lot of meat options for breakfast if you don't eat pork but other than that the service was great, the resort was clean, the grounds were beautiful! I love the fact that they fog the area for bugs every day. There is a hotel across the street being refurbished so the noise wasn't that pleasant but the overall stay at the Sunset at the Palms made up for it. We would definitely return again! The horseback riding tours and the Great River Rafting was excellent!!

Honeymooners planning an anniversary trip

I spent a reasonable amount of time researching Jamaican resorts to book our honeymoon. We were looking for something smaller, as we are both from a small town, and appreciate the personal, intimate, familiarity this brings. This resort was in the sweet spot of small enough and having enough to offer.
We can’t say enough good things about the fantastic staff. We are not exaggerating when we say that everyone was welcoming and pleasant. They never once gave me grief for refusing to try talking like a local.(I’m from New York, trying to talk like I’m from Jamaica seems contrived and weird) One time I was blissed out after a super massage and forgot my necklace there. When I woke up the next day, it had been slipped under the door before I realized it was missing. The next day, I was stung by a stingray after the rough weather had brought them much closer to shore, and we were one of the first people in the water. Damion was extremely helpful in doing what he could to neutralize the venom. When that wasn’t enough, he called the doctor to the resort. She was there almost as fast as I could get back to reception. As painful as my injury was, the staff made sure we were still having a good day. (It cost me less than $250USD for the Dr visit, a cortisone shot, and antibiotics. I couldn’t have gotten that care in the states for twice that, and it was a house call to boot)
We went to both of the on-site restaurants. Both were good meals and great experiences. I was impressed with the chef’s skill with every meal. I could tell that the appetizer one night was a “food supplier kit” and it tasted as such, but the rest of the meal more than made up for it. The buffet always had a great selection for every palate from chain American restaurant to haute cuisine. The massive pile of quality bacon available every morning proved that they love me.
I had some concern regarding the road crossing to get to the beach. Not once did I have to wait even 30 seconds to get across.
We heard mixed reviews of experiences outside the resort, but mostly positive. We planned on staying at the resort for the entire week, and did just that. It was always relaxing and never boring. We are going back for sure.

If you are looking for a place in Jamaica to stay adults only, this is the place for you. My partner and I went for a week and it was amazing from the Staff, the food and the beach everything was great. I will definitely be going back. Loleta was great at helping us decide on excursions. The bartenders Alex and Kirk were just happy and sociable. I cannot rave enough about this resort. Thank you soo much to the staff at Sunset at the Palms for your impeccable hospitality!

Honeymoon in Paradise
Reviewed 7 days ago

We stayed at SATP for our honeymoon from 10/6-10/13... and wow. I certainly did my homework prior to booking here on a timeshare but so many things exceeded my expectations.

FOOD:
We experienced Seafood night, Mediterranean night, Jamaican night, and BBQ night at the buffet. BBQ night was held on the beach and was absolutely fantastic, both mine and my husband's favorite meal while there (the short ribs and jerk mac and cheese were to DIE FOR!)

We skipped Italian night for the Lotus Leaf, which we went to twice. I had the steak on both visits. Cooked to medium perfection with a crispy crust. Delicious. My husband had the pork chops the first time, which he enjoyed (although he thought the portion on this was a little small), and the second time around, he also ordered the beef tenderloin and was happy with it. DO NOT book at Lotus Leaf if you like a 30-45 minute quick dinner experience. You're on Island time. Sit back, relax, enjoy a couple glasses of wine and good service for this 90-minute meal.

We did Chef's Showcase on the last night, and it was just okay. Cool experience and great service but I was not blown away by the meal. I would definitely go, though!

Breakfast was always fresh! We were so tired that it took us a couple days to wake up before 10am, but once we had it, we looked forward to it daily. Get a morning Rummaccino, you won't regret it. Have a Jiggy coffee for an afternoon boozy pick-me-up. Trust me. Do it.

We did not have lunch too many times at the resort, we mostly were at the beach or on an excursion by the afternoon... but at the beach grill, have the fish tacos or reggae nachos!

ROOMS:
The rooms were clean, always to perfection. Some of the shower heads (there were 5) were clogged, but it did not alter my shower experience.
Our daybed on the balcony had ants on it from the foliage nearby... so we didn't get great use out of it :(

I wish I would've asked for a room closer to the front of the resort and not so tucked back into the jungle, but oh well.

ENTERTAINMENT:
If you are looking for a party, DO NOT BOOK HERE. Bottom line. You will be disappointed. If you are interested in relaxing, meeting cool people, endless drinks at the pool party and beach, and being in bed by 11 or midnight, you're in the right place.

We are a young couple, (mid 20's), so we did not find the piano man entertaining. We did, however, enjoy the live music and bands by the pool bar close to every night. We did not venture off the resort for nightlife, we didn't feel the need to.

DO THE CATAMARAN TOUR-- 5-hour booze cruise with Snorkeling, cave exploring, and famous Rick's Cafe... all with open bar. One of the best days we had here. Worth every penny.

At any rate, Loleta will point you in the direction of the best excursions for you to do off the resort and she takes care of all the planning. You just show up.

DRINKS:
My go-to was a Jamaican mule or Appleton and Ting (grapefruit soda). Red stripe light was delicious. The champagne was a crisp brut, which I enjoyed. The red wine is a Cabernet-Merlot blend (just OK). The Chardonnay was buttery and delicious.

WHY NOT 5 STARS?
The mosquitoes. Bottom line, I came home with over 50 mosquito bites despite using DEET off-woods and bounce dryer sheets diligently. The humid weather in Negril with the foliage at SATP makes this place a mosquito heaven. We met some couples who did not get bitten much at ALL. We were not so lucky. It made parts of the day unpleasant because I was so uncomfortable and itchy. They fog the property at 4pm every day and I don't think it helped.

In summary, if you're looking for a beautiful and romantic, atypical resort with its own unique flair, this is your spot for some R&R. If you like the big buildings, foam, partys, fist-pumping music, and a loud environment, hit up Royalton down the street. We had the most beautiful honeymoon thanks to the incredible staff at SATP. We're so thankful.
