We booked by phone 10 days ago for 2 nights. Everything was ok. But this morning, we phoned before taking the boat and somebody answered in lao " it is closed " now in another place we will investigate but looks very unprofessional .

We chose this place as we had read all these good reviews, but we were really disappointed: the bungalow we stayed in was dusty, the linoleum floor really tired, the toilet seat broken, there was no bin, no mosquito net, the light was weak, etc. For 10,000kip more per night (less than £1), you can get a cleaner and better...

Julie and Jim created a real Oasis itself. The location is so peacefull and if you look for a paradise like place to stay - the Sunset Paradise is the place to be. We found the sunset paradise by accident and were so happy to have the pleasure to stay. Keep up the good spirit.

Julie is a lovely young woman, Jim is a very polite smiling young man, our bungalow was old, small, uncomfortable and dark. Breakfast is not included, but can be ordered at a reasonable price in the nice terrace overlooking the river. During our stay (three nights), our bungalow was not cleaned. Good music and wifi. I think Julie and Jim...

Probably one of my best stay in Laos. The guesthouse is small and extremely cosy with delicious food (must try the fresh spring rolls). It is in a quiet spot of the island yet close to all the restaurants of Don Khone. The owners are young, very friendly and helpful and make the stay extremely enjoyable.

Rooms cannot be booked via classic channels. You need to e-mail them and/or contact Julie via their Facebook page. For us, the message exchange before arrival was swift, polite and helpful. Our bungalow was in line with descriptions in previous reviews. It was rather clean and comfortable but Spartan. Nothing to hang your clothes, only a low cupboard. No locker....

We'd booked via Sunset Paradise's FB page based on all the great reviews on Tripadvisor. At 150k per night we knew it would be basic...but seriously, so many things that could be improved to reflect the going rate on the island: hangers and a place to hang clothes, a net/ trap for the drain to ensure cockroaches do not enter,...

I have spent several nights at Sunset Paradise and i have to say that it was perfect. The location of this guesthouse is amasing. So close to the Mekong river. One of the best sunset i have ever seen in Asia !! 😃😃 Perfect place to relax meet people and chill out. Rooms are simple, clean, very quiet and cheap....

I have no idea how Sunset Paradise became number 1 for Don Khone on TripAdvisor. The rooms are small, dark, stifling boxes with low ceilings and no aircon, and the one fan provided is not sufficient to counter this. It feels like sleeping in a slow-cooker. The host was unaware of our booking when we arrived, despite being in contact...

I loved staying at Sunset Paradise. I was initially going to Don Det but I met Julie (the owner)'s aunt in the boat with a group of nice girls and decided to follow the little happy group to Don Khone for a night or two. I stayed one whole week! Resting, bicycling, trekking, swimming in the Mekong, chilling again, dolphin...

“Get them to put the mosquito net up, it makes you feel safe from insects and is a bit like an indoor camping experience!”

“The bungalows in the front have the strongest wifi signals if you plan on updating your friends on your trip in your room. Otherwise the main area wifi signal is strong.”
