Sunset Beach
Ranked #5 of 5 Hotels in Shelter Island
Reviewed 20 August 2017 via mobile

For sure there are nicer more luxurious hotels to stay in the Hamptons, however few are as fun and great for people watching at Sunset Beach! And they have their own Rose' so what's not to like. Yeah the rooms are not super luxe and are a little rustic but you don't come here to stay in your room!

The vibe is cool, slightly hipster vey media and certainly fashion!

The food is good the cocktails better! But the summer weekend nights partying is what it's all about... when that sun sets the DJ turns up the bass!

$10 for a medium sized bottle of Evian. $28 for a small Niçoise salad with tinned tuna and old cherry tomatoes.
Very average service.
What a rip off!
Only plus is great view and great beach - hugely disappointing otherwise!!
Come for the beach but bring your own food and drinks!

I am giving it two stars to highlight how dissapointed we were paying so much money for what was being managed like a beach hut. First of all, the pros:
Great vibe, some great, hard working staff, including the person killing himself to set up chairs and umbrellas in the blistering heat. The free bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas is a great plus. The vibe of the bar is great, as is the water.
Now for the cons. When we got to our room, there were many dead bugs all over the place. Perhaps the room had been empty, but c'mon - get a mop and clean it. For over $500 a night it should be crisp and clean. The glasses for morning orange juice were visibly disgusting, and the silverware with our crossaints were also dirty.
If the hotel wants to rest on its laurels, it will have customers and continue to be booked on weekends by the rich and famous, but will lose the benefit of returning weekday customers when it would have been so easy to keep us. Hope they take my advice.
At the end of the day, we did have a good time, but not without feeling like we did not get what we paid for.

The setting is stunning, the restaurants and bar buzzing and the food great.............but the rooms are a disgrace. We travelled from London for a birthday. Arrived late at night, no toilet paper in the room, a broken toilet seat, a sink that didn't drain, a hairdryer that didn't work, a curtain hanging off its hooks, a dirty terrace......how can they charge $500 a night for rooms no better than a motel.
