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.

We arrived at the resort and were greeted by very friendly staff who showed us around. The secluded rainforest atmosphere was so tranquil and the place was immaculate! Even though there were fewer visitors than normal due to COVID, they maintained the property and made sure we still had an amazing experience. They also followed all the proper COVID protocol to make sure we felt safe during our trip. All the staff were very helpful during our stay and truly cared about us enjoying ourselves. Shout out to the beach staff, our lifeguard, Alexander, and the manager, Byron, who all went above and beyond, especially after I had injured myself while swimming in the ocean. Make sure you also get your photoshoot in with their photographer as she is great as well! Expect to get top quality food and drinks here. We were pleasantly surprised with the selection and quality available to us. They had a couple of chef showcase nights where they cook the food in front of you, which made for an entertaining and romantic evening. Pro tip: the red snapper is top notch. Overall, an incredible experience, and would highly recommend to anyone considering a trip to Negril! Read less

We were there during the height of covid 2020 and the staff and everyone did an AMAZING job!!! There was a nightly curfew at 9 pm that was imposed by the government during covid but they still did an amazing job. I would highly recommend staying here and look forward to returning soon!!!

This is a very intimate and friendly resort with nice bungalows as rooms. It is very charming and has a private beach and friendly staff. We had a great time thanks to the manager Patrick. If you have any issues you need to seek him out and be vocal about it. They will make every effort to fix it. Just be aware that they spray the grounds with bug spray every afternoon so sometimes the rooms smell like chemicals if you come during that time. Make sure to take plenty of bug repellent with you anyway because the grounds are beautifully lush and nature comes with some insects :) The food was good and again if you are a vegetarian or vegan you need to make sure they know and that you speak with the chef upon your arrival so they meet your needs. One last thing--if you are traveling with a friend and you are shy just know they don't have doors on the bathrooms. It's more of a couples feel. I went with a family member so i was ok. The service was good but if you tip it gets exponentially better. A couple of dollars goes a long way here. Read less

We came to this resort to get married and have our honeymoon and I cannot express the gratitude and emotion I have for this spectacular resort. I don't even know where to start. 1) The resort itself is literally like a palm paradise, filled with palm trees, coconut trees, plants , exotic flowers, birds, hummingbirds just everything about this place is amazing and beautiful. You have peace and serenity. The fresh air filled with the tropical ambiance; just incredible. The grounds are well kept and maintained, the rooms/suites are like treehouse cabins/apartments, some come with hammocks, they have balconies, beds are amazing, they're fully air-conditioned, views and surrounding areas; everything is just wonderful and I was totally in my element. The pool is beautiful and well kept, towels very clean and the swim-up pool bar, nice touch guys! Housekeeping ladies, you are the best, the room on request was always cleaned and refreshed, thank you ladies!! I love you! 2) The food is lovely, breakfast, lunch and dinner, drinks all you can have and want is there. The food is amazing, daily they usually have a Jamaican dish for breakfast, that's what I always had, but they have a menu for other options as well. The servers, Stacey, Melissa, Alicia, Patrick; all of them were so wonderful, thank you guys, you truly embrace the culture and present the SATP ambiance and experience. I can't thank them enough truly. 3) Our ceremony was magical, Many thanks and much appreciation to Nadine, their wedding event planner/Coordinator. She is a diamond, she organized our whole ceremony to perfection. From the ceremony to the music, flowers, setting, cake, EVERYTHING I CANNOT thank her enough. She is a true gem at the Palms and she even helped me keep my nerves calm before getting married... I LOVE HER and she's like the sister I never had, I love her and her team, and we will never forget what you guys did for us. Karen the photographer is amazing and very skillful and did an excellent job with our photos and editing, she's truly amazing; many thanks Karen, I love you hun. Patrick's service and daily acknowledgment to us was just so received. He is truly experienced in his profession and it shows. He honors you with respect, honor and manners like a Maitre D (hope that's his title) should. He is spot on with his service and performance, and any place will be blessed to have him serve them. The Resort amenities were just right for us, the gym and spa, (attendants were fab) massage was the best I've received in years, thanks, ladies. The beach is beautiful and clean, water is perfect, the food at the bar has the best jerk chicken, and beach staff were all great. The music band is always entertaining and cheerful, thank you guys. The gift shop rep, she was so sweet, love her and will miss her. Overall, the experience was wonderful. The front desk team, you guys definitely hold this all together, very attentive, compliant, resilient, and professional. I loved all the front desk staff, thank you guys I love you, I don't remember all your names, but you're truly hard workers and truly present the SATP brand and excellent reputation. Truly I say thank you to everyone, you all truly made our experience, wonderful, magical and memorable. Mr & Mrs Hurt will always make you our anniversary destination in the future. You are our new family and we love you all. We thank you immensely, Quincy & Keisha Hurt Read less
