Sunset At The Palms

Negril, Jamaica

The hotel

Nestled in 10-acres of delightful tropical gardens, the Sunset at the Palms is a sure-fire winner for adults looking for a peaceful and pampering retreat. Begin your holiday the minute you step off the plane with the Club MoBay VIP arrival service where you will be fast tracked through the Jamaican Immigration and Customs meaning you will be on the beach sipping a cocktail before you know it. Stay in exquisite wooden bungalows that sit atop sturdy stilts, so you feel like you’re in a tree house — albeit a luxury one, with polished wood floors, sleek showers with body jets and airy balconies furnished with a relaxing day bed. There are three different dining choices from the extensive International buffet at Palm Grove Restaurant to the creative Caribbean fusion menu at the à la carte Lotus Leaf. Guests rave about the spicy Jamaican ‘Jerk’ chicken that’s served at the Beach Bar and Grill during lunch — don’t miss it! The pool is perfect for lounging in the sun, or it’s a short escorted walk over the road to the celebrated Bloody Bay, a spectacular stretch of white sand beach fringed with picture-perfect palm trees.

The staff in this spa like resort is simply amazing ! From helping before the trip, to the arrival, during and leaving they are the best and was very appreciated. They knew me by just calling me "trouble" or "superman" form my superman shirt. Reading some reviews before we left I was concerned but once we got there I was relieved to see the rooms in great condition, the grounds were immaculate, the food was good (I've had better but I've had worse). They take great care of the pool and hot tub, the pool is drastically under utilized by the visitors as unlike some resorts this one is free to swim until1am. There is no problem getting a chair in the sun or shade. The beach is only a 5 minute walk from the resort and is probably closer than if you were to have a room at a larger resort. There is no problem getting a chair in the sun or shade once again. The beach is the best for the resorts on bloody bay with numerous travelers walking the beach asking which resort is this....It was a proud moment. There is no booming music but you do get the subtitle songs through the air which was very relaxing. The water is very calm and clear be aware of jelly fish as our Colombian friends got stung but the staff got him all patched up and good to go with many thanks. I recommend going back to resort for the food as the food at the beach grill takes forever and that is the only downfall I have about this resort other than the nightlife. The nightlife is next to none. They try with the local band 4 nights a week and my wife had a great time getting up and singing numerous times. But other than that you are better off going to another resort for a few hours and partying there to come back to relax afterwards. There are numerous resorts that will sell you a day/night pass (We went to "human zoo". yes you know where ! ). This is a fantastic buy and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a A+ beach, staff and romance. It is very clean, very safe and everything you could ask for ! We look forward to coming back in the very near future. Thanks everyone ! From Superman and The Colombians :) Read less

Jamaica being absolutely beautiful and an amazing place to visit, my experience could largely be attributed to this wonderful hotel. It feels as if you have your own private oasis having your own treehouse. The staff was amazing and it quickly feels like family. We got to know some even by name in just a week - friendly and extremely professional. The food at the resort was top-notch and also the healthiest I have eaten in a long while. It has a very zen, low-key vibe. The beach staff was amazing and made you feel right at home. You could even take some paddleboards out for free. Would go again in a heartbeat. Read less

The staff was friendly and amazing. Food could be better .I mean who wants to go and vacation on a beautiful island and eat American dishes that they eat at home. The manager was super sweet and helpful. The resort is very intiment if you're looking for a quiet vacation.I would definitely recommend.Oh and the customer service is off the hook.

This is a small resort that makes you feel like family very quickly. Impeccable grounds, beautiful beach and service above and beyond. I don't think I can go to any other "all-inclusive" after being here. I'm looking forward to going back. *not the place for you if you are looking for a party. This has a low-key vibe.

We returned to our favourite resort for another Christmas and New Years. So grateful to have 17 days this year and it flew by. We reunited with many guests that we meet every year. Always feels like a luxury adult camp with great councillors and an awesome beach. And great fresh food!! The staff is truly amazing from front to back and always remember who you are .The beach staff is incredible. It’s definitely the best maintained beach for cleanliness and attention to guests. The new washroom is amazing. We had a few personal celebrations this time and the staff went beyond to help us in our celebrations. We were lucky enough to go to the repeaters dinner and had Sharon (former long time manager)for her last go round and met the new manager. Both lovely people. I’m sure she will carry on past traditions and bring some new ones of her own .We wish Sharon all the best in her retirement. The resort does a wonderful job with food. So many good vegetables and fruits and always a selection of good proteins. The breakfast and bacon of course is legendary. We thought the entertainment at night was great improved and very much enjoyed the various groups especially Christine. Would love to see Donovan one night per week. Every visit we can’t say enough about the beautiful grounds and how fabulous they are maintained. Nothing like sitting n the balcony watching the birds and the surroundings. The staff are amazing. You all know who you are .All of them take the time to know you if you take the time to know them The new friends we made this year were fabulous. Time To save for next year . THANKS SATP Read less
