    This place is safe and family friendly. Location is good across street from beach. Rooms pretty clean. Bf is lacking, but it had pancakes hard boiled eggs and cerial. Coffee juice tea. Pool is small. We got a kitchen so milk bread spaghetti, noodle and we can do a simple family meal. Grocery is a couple blocks away. There are several places too eat. The one at hotel was good for any meal bf, lunch, dinner.

    Great Stay!

    From the time we contacted reservations Pauline handled everything for us expertly and had us super excited about our upcoming stay. We arrived at approximately 1pm, our room was not ready, which was fine because checkin wasnt until 3pm so we went to lunch and came back around 2:30 and our room was ready. We were on the 3rd floor and our room was spacious and clean. We had an infant with us and the pack n play looked to be brand new which was also nice. The staff was very helpful and always greeted us with warm smiles. We spent most of our time at the beach at the sister property and touring the island so we weren't in the room much but for the time we spent there it met our expectations. My kids loved the breakfast. They usually had pancakes, pastries, cereals, and assorted juices, fruit, and yogurt. My favorite was the banana bread. Definitely the best value on the island and we will be back.

    Wonderful Stay

    My husband and I stayed at the Sunshine Suites Resort over Memorial Day and had a wonderful experience. At first walking up to the resort it looked like a little yellow motel so I was skeptical but it was quick to impress. Check-in was quick, the rooms were very clean and large and the restaurant on property has AMAZING fish tacos....a must try. Our couple friends stayed across the street at the Westin but I booked Shineshine since you still have access to the Westin pool and beach (it is the sister property) with half the cost. They offer a golf cart shuttle anytime you need a ride over which was wonderful. It is conveniently located close to other restaurants, across the street from the beach and right behind Captain Marvins tours if you want to visit stingray city or other water tours.

    Sunshine was a perfect place for a vacation. Everybody talked about it while we were there and I look forward to coming back. Great amenities at the property as well as the sister property. The staff was so good and friendly. We enjoyed the stay and didn't want to leave.

    All the ammentities of the Westin without the pricetag

    Nice and clean accommodations! Across the street from Westin on seven mile beach. Can use the amenities of the Westin such as pool, restaurants, beach, beach yoga, beach bar service etc. Easy 3-5 minute walk or they have a shuttle service. The restaurant at Sunshine Suites was actually better than any food we had at the Westin. Easy access to public transportation. Cabs are very expensive so each night we took public transportation bus to different restaurants and then walked to beach back to our hotel. Can't wait to go back and will probably book at Sunshine Suites again.
