    Excellent resort

    The Sunshine Suites Resort is located less than 2 blocks from the beach. The location is great. Close to Foster's supermarket, close to public transportation. The best feature is that as a guest we were able to use the facilities at the Westin Resort , on the beach. Free umbrellas, chairs and towels. Great service. The unit we had at the Sunshine was clean, with all essentials provided and comfortable. The gardens are immaculate.

    Not the greatest!!

    The property is tired, rooms smell musty, no elevator (3 floors), no dishwasher, no oven and minimal eating utensils. People are very nice and the restaurant is very good. The salvation is the relationship this facility has with the Westin across the street....great beach there, but about 1/8 mile walk to get there.

    Great Location and Budget-Friendly

    If you're willing to walk across a fairly busy street to reach the beach, Sunshine Suites is a good choice. Guests have full access to the facilities at the beautiful Westin, on a prime stretch of the beach. Sunshine Suites' rooms are dated but clean. The included breakfast could greatly benefit from real oatmeal rather than packaged oatmeal.

    Great value

    Just spent 6 days at the Sunshine Suites. It was a great place for our family get together. We used the Westin facilities extensively as they are right across the street and available as partnof the stay, but enjoyed the quite mornings at the Sunshine Suites. The included breakfast was minimal but plenty for most. My husband liked to order from the Sunshine grill to get bacon and eggs. Having the Sunshine grill and pool area as a hub was super. The rooms were clean and the air con worked great. Very important as it was hot. Plenty of room, sound proof, dark. Good sleeping. Staff was very accommodating. We had a group of 14 and appreciated the service from the office on questions and suggestions as well as the noodles for snorkling and beach towels. Price was reasonable. My husband accidentally left the keys in the room and the staff went out of their way to find them and send them to the airport in a cab. What a relief. Bar tenders and food for b,l and dinner fantastic at both the Sunshine and Westin. Sunsets and cocktails at the Westin were our routine.

    Outstanding experience

    This is a great hotel with families, and lets you access the Westin and all its amenities on the beach. The breakfast was ok, but the coffee was fabulous. The Sunshine Cafe is hands-down the best fish tacos I have ever had.
