Everyone was amazing and made you feel so welcomed! They go out of their way to make sure your stay is great and the food is absolutely amazing! We ate at the hotel more than any other restaurant, I would definitely go back!

What a great little hotel. Staff was great. Great view of the ocean. Restaurant had some great food. Have the plantain appetizers, delish. Nights are quiet. Rooms are small but it gave the place character. It's away from downtown and the sunsets are beautiful. Overall San Andres island was a great experience.

A little out of the way but in a nice area for diving . Very friendly and helpful staff. The bus ride into town is worth the effort. Great scuba next door with Sharky's. The only thing I didn't like was some noise from motorcycles racing along this road. It was only for a few minutes a couple times but...

The stay at Sunset hotel exceeded my expectations! The hotel is located in a quite area of the beautiful island, meaning that you don't have to live in the not-so-charming city of San Andres. Rent a car to get around the island. It will take you 25 mins to get to the city. Lovely staff, great restaurant and nice rooms...

I spent three days here with a couple of friends, and everything was amazing! The staff are the best, especially Melanie, and the food here is great to.

The sunset hotel is a basic, beach style hotel that caters mainly for divers. Rooms are really spartan with very few ammenities and awful wifi. In our room the sink was outside the bathroom!!
