If you're looking for a small, quiet and extremely relaxing resort ... then this is the place for you. The grounds are beautiful, lush and extremely well-maintained. The staff is courteous, kind, helpful and amazing. The food is very good, lots of variety and so fresh. The rooms are clean, comfortable and set up in such a uniquely private setting; you feel like you're vacationing amongst a beautiful rainforest. You hear the sweet song of the birds during the day and the tree frogs lull you to sleep at night. The atmosphere is soooo relaxing. The pool is not over-crowded. The beach is across the road, but it's a short pleasant walk away. The beach is also nice and clean, and there is never any problem getting a beach lounger. There are wonderful local travelling musicians that provide entertainment on the beach.
Things that are a must do:
* Take the garden tour with the head gardener, Shorty. He is an excellent tour guide and you learn so much about the many plants and trees that are on the grounds. He is very entertaining.
* Just outside the resort entrance, you will find Gary; he drives a van taxi. Hire him to take you around Negril and area for a few hours. He'll take you wherever you want to go ... if you want to see the countryside or see how the locals live - he knows where to take you; if you want to go shopping and are looking for something specific - he knows where to take you. His prices are reasonable and you'll have an amazing experience. He's very decent and extremely professional.
* Take the sunset catamaran cruise to Rick's Cafe. It's a lot of fun.
* Get a fresh lobster on the beach. There's a little place just on the perimeter of the resort's beach area (it's to your right if you're looking out at the water). It's run by some Rastas; you get to pick a lobster (kept alive and fresh in a cage in the water), they will prepare it for you and cook it on a grill over an open flame ... it is AMAZING!
I can't say enough about this place. I've been to many resorts, in Jamaica and throughout the Carribean, and this is definitely my favourite by far. I will most certainly return to Sunset at the Palms many more times.

Melt away with a soothing spa service in our unique treatment garden, cool off at the swim-up bar with a tropical drink or "chill" at the resort's five beachfront acres and two miles of white sand beach, just steps away.
