Never commented on Tripadvisor before but then again I've never experienced such friendly service and attention to detail. Nothing has been too much trouble for the staff. The rooms may be a little beyond their best but they are clean and comfortable. This is great place to chill out and relax. Brought two dogs who were made to feel as... More

This stay was a chance taken in light of some reviews. The rooms and public areas could do with an interior designer taking charge , however, the views are superb and we found the staff excellent , helpful and in particular the waiter totally dedicated to his job - he was a credit to the hotel - very professional throughout....

We had a fabulous weekend at the Sun Bay Hotel, staying in the balcony room with stunning sea views! Our room was first class, clean and modern with no problems. The staff were all excellent and very accommodating. Michelle, our host, was very cheerful and friendly and nothing was too much. Nuno, the waiter in the restaurant, was very friendly,... More

Great location, and some very pleasant, helpful staff. So what went wrong? Lousy soft bed meant little sleep in a back room in need of tlc and a major refurbishment, including an ensuite whose door looked like a dog had clawed it to bits which you could contemplate from a loose and wobbly toliet. Not seat, a wobbly toilet. No... More

Great for people with dogs as the place is ideal for walks on the beach. But once back at the hotel your pooches can even join you for dinner if you sit in the conservatory. The rooms aren't huge but have everything you need and fantastic views.

We stayed here for 3 nights having a superior twin which was probably one of the best rooms in the hotel (No.7). It was a large end room with a double aspect overlooking the Hope Cove (inner) We dined at the hotel for all 3 nights, and enjoyed a sirloin steak, baked hake, and a snack Panini. Our evening meals... More

The hotel is in a beautiful position , overlooking the sea. The couple who ran the hotel; a husband and wife team called Antol and Edit were an absolute delight. Nothing was too much trouble for them and were so welcoming. The first two rooms we were shown were rather in need of severe modernising starting with the faded wall... More
