We spent 10 nights at the Sunset Bay. We had the suite, which is a separate cottage towards the rear of the property. I did look in one of the rooms and they were of good size. The location, which is half-way between Rouseau and Portsmouth, was great for touring the island. Because of it's location, I would recommend a car rental. The owners are Belgian, and Roger was a chef. He has trained his kitchen staff very well, so the food is top-notch (He also cooks, himself). His wife, Marcella, manages the hotel. Her staff is also well-trained, and I've rarely seen a cleaner establishment in the Caribbean! No request was too much for them to respond to quickly! The one draw-back is the beach. There is a lot of sand, but there's also a lot of stones, so if you're going to go in swimming, reef shoes are a must. The setting is lovely, with lots of interesting plantings. An addad bonus is the presence of lots of big iguanas! They're very interesting to watch. There's also lots of birds, especially hummingbirds. The pool, unfortunnately, is located at the rear of the property, so it's not handy to use both it and the beach at the same time. On the other hand, the pool has lots of comfortable sun loungers and is a quiet place to swim and read or just soak up the sun. There's a complete dive operation and all-inclusive guests have free use of the snorkle equipment and get to go out on the dive boat for snorkle trips. All in all, guests really receive a lot for a relatively modest amount of money. This is a high-quality operation!!
