If you're looking for a relaxing getaway at an all-inclusive with no beach just a cliffside (i.e. no panhandlers) this is the place for you. View is beautiful, staff is attentive but not overbarring and food is wonderful (if you enjoy fish, chicken and standard American breakfasts). Did not particularly like that tipping was allowed at an all-inclusive, stressed me out a bit since I didn't know what to tip. But since the exchange rate was 85 Jamaican Dollar to 1 USD, I think anything is appreciated. We tipped the individuals that helped us on a daily basis near the end and then left a pool tip on the credit card at check out. I only left the resort one day to take a sunset "booze cruise", it was a good time and we snorkeled for 25 minutes. Rick's Cafe is only about 0.25 miles away so it's walkable, but I wouldn't suggest walking too much further. Things we learned...spring for the transportation to & from the airport thru The Caves (call ahead). It costs a little more, but is a direct shot to/from the airport. Otherwise you make stops at many other resorts and it takes 2 hrs, versus about 1.25 hrs direct. Get the cave hot tub at sunset, not moon light. You can't see anything for the moon, but sunset would be beautiful. You can buy all of the souveneirs you want at the airport, may be a little more expensive but much less hassle. Be prepared to be propositions for various "things," not at the resort, but anytime you leave. Finally, make sure you have a Dark & Stormy!

The DRIVE to this location is over a hour long from the Airport; expect to take the Tour Bus ($25.00 per person- One Way) or a Cab ($100.00 One Way). Once there at first glance at this Resort, you expect the worst. But after the check-in and the Escort directs you to you’re desired room; you will find out that this Resort isn’t that Bad. If you expect this Resort to be on the standards of the Major Hotels you’re at the wrong place. Some of the rooms at this Resort have a rustic style; if this is what you’re looking for, this is it. The staff was polite and very welcoming, very receptive to you’re needs. The food was okay; don’t expect a large serving of food or drinks (6oz cups). There isn’t an ice machine or ice containers in the rooms, so either you have to buy a bag of ice from the store of continue to get cups of ice from the bar area (6oz cups). Take the shuttle to their sister Resort (Legend) for the Beach and Sand; but stay at the Samsara for the Pool; Jacuzzi and the BEST VIEW. Plenty of places to eat on the streets; wear comfortable shoes/sandals for walking. Some of the natives can be entertaining while others can be a little annoying after awhile. OVERALL MY HUSBAND AND I WOULD RETURN.

The property is lovely,the perfect hide away with very courteous staff,too bad the owners are not spending the money needed to update the property and provide the little conveniences and amenities to make it a home away from home yet with the feeling of a larger resort. The changes could be as simple as bigger and better sinage at the street coming in as well as at the entrance. Better lightening at the front. Put a goblet and glasses in the room and for goodness sake phones in the rooms so one does not have to go to the reception area to use the phone or wifi. Change bathroom lights to make up lights and get rid of the yellow kitchen lights. The Front area could be much more welcoming. Remove the managers office and open up a proper sitting ,waiting area,reception area and have phones downstairs that work. Please do not run out of foods which are on the menu and train the staff to know what's available before the meal is ordered. Although the staff is nice could still be a little more professional. The manager needs to have some say in having computers available for guests if needed. Paint the place please and have more fresh fruits and choices on the menu Little changes which will be cost effective in the long run and really make it an Oasis. I would not return much less with my husband,only if there is an occasion in close proximity and I am hanging out with friends

The Caribbean Sunset Resort is located in up the hill nearly 800 yards from the roundabout, it is in prime location to the bank, Burger King, super market, and several Jamaican apparel beach wear shops. The resort is gated with and guard on duty and locals will not bother entering the resort if you need a break from being accosted into buying things. The resort is higher in elevation so you get a pretty good view of the happenings on the street though far enough away and hidden by palms to feel like you’re on top of everything. The pool is a nice retreat from the mid day sun and quite refreshing at night I did see them treat the pool every day of my stay and despite the music from a local night club (Saturday nights are especially loud bring ear plugs life saver) the resort is quiet and safe at night. My room was cleaned on a daily basis I didn’t have to worry about the safety of my valuables, safes are provided in the rooms for three dollars a day keys are at the front desk and if there no safe in the room there are safes that stay at the front desk area for rental. My room was a single with a King sized bed it had very nice furniture in it, a television, ceiling fan, AC, bathroom, and private balcony. There was a bit of a bug issue I had mosquitoes which can be remedied if you keep the curtains closed during the day and shutters closed. I didn’t order any food from room service I did however purchase beer from the bar which was ice cold and a “fair” bar price in Jamaica

Everything was as we expected after reading multiple reviews. This ws not a fancy resort but it was quiet, relaxing and just what we needed. All the staff were wonderful and we had an extremely pleasant stay. The food was excellent, the rooms clean and we know we want to return.
