Sunset Cove was perfect in every way.  We had condo 131 beachfront - door opened right onto the beach - cant beat that!!!   the beach was great, not crowded and sand was wide and the water perfect for swimming -- since had cove did not have to deal with currents, waves etc but if you wanted to you could just do it outside cove.  we compared our property to other major expensive hotels there and their beach was very narrow in some cases -  yet their photos do not depict rows and rows of chairs - stacked on each other just about!  very crowded.  We were able to walk to market or dinner  - all was perfect.   Everyone we dealt with to make the reservations at Cayman Condos were great  - efficient, pleasant and responsive - cant ask for more.  On our arrival Debbie was there to meet us - she was great!  Pleasant, helpful and if we would had the need to contact her we could of!  The condo was nicely decorated, very clean and the kitchen was well equipped..   We definitely will go back and request same condo!    We truly loved the place.  Pool was also great as was their mudslide from Bar!!! must have!!!  Oh key tours to take - George Water Sports - boat tour (stingrays, star fish beach, snorkle)- so worth it -- you are with 12 people max - not 30 or more as other boats!  a must do!  plus for horseback riding on beach- coral stone stable - horses are so clean, and well taken care of.  Noland owner was so nice to work with.  Our guide was Everton - and he was absolutely great.  Their horses are much better cared for then other places we saw! We went around 5 ish perfect time as earlier sub would been brutal.. For really nice dinner tho pricey but food and location were great. Calypso and lobster pot. For more casual like hamburger , pizza etc peppers, legendz, coconut joe's.  burger with fries run around $10+ or so depend on what you get. Our whole experience was great and we can't wait go back...

Just stayed here with my family for 5 days. The condo is beautiful. The unit we stayed in was immaculately clean and well prepared. It was great to have a full kitchen to make breakfast and lunch each day. We made dinner one night too. The pool is beautiful and well kept. The pool bar is fun but is expensive. Pack a cooler and have you own happy hour. The beach is very clean however it is a big rocky but not too bad. The location is great with restaurants and shops all located nearby. The condo is connected with Margaritaville. They have a great happy hour at their lobby bar. Will definitely stay here again!

We have stayed here twice and loved it the lagoon is so nice and the beach is private and we never had to many at once. You can also snorkel in the lagoon. Staff are great, nice and clean with 2 pools along with a swim up bar.

My family and I (2 adults and 2 kids ages 12 and 8) just returned from our 6 night GC vacation and we stayed at the Sunset Cove Condos. We were very pleased with the location of Sunset Cove. It is right at the southern tip of Seven Mile Beach and it's beach area is very nice. We stopped by the Marriott and Comfort Suites areas and both of them were much for crowded and congested. Very little space between chairs and area to walk. Sunset Cove also had a much nicer pool than either of those locations. The pool at Sunset Cove is much larger and has a swim up bar that is really nice. There is a nice lagoon at the Sunset Cove beach which we snorkeled in, but the better snorkeling is on the outside of the cove around the edges and about 150 yds out there is a really nice reef. The condo itself was nice enough. We stayed in condo 322 which was a "pool" view, but had a beautiful view of the beach and we saw some amazing sunsets from our balcony. Inside the condo is a little rough, several of the lights did not work and a few of the fans had to be on for the light to be on as well. The kitchen was pretty well appointed and had pretty much everything we needed. The beds were pretty comfortable. My boys said each of the twin beds in their room were very comfortable. The master bedroom's bed was also fine. The shower in the master bath can be a bit of a challenge to figure out and it took us a few tries to finally get it set correctly. The condo is walking distance to Camana Bay and we walked up there several times. In the middle of the day it can be a bit of a long and hot walk but in the evenings it's rather nice. Coconut Joe's and Pepper's are both an easy walk from Sunset Cove. Kirk Market is about a 15 minute walk south to go grocery shopping. The clerk told me it was okay to take the shopping carts back to the property as long as it is left near enough to the road that it can be collected. She was right, the cart was gone after a day or two of when I left it. Apparently they have a truck that comes around and gets them a few times a week. The washer and dryer in the unit are small, but very nice to have. We used them several times. All in all, I would definitely stay here again. After comparing to some of the other hotel properties on SMB I think a condo is so much more spacious and reasonable. We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to returning someday.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and it was a dream , we had a condo on the beach 3 bed and it was amazing the beds were massive, and so comfy the condo was really big , 3 bed beautiful furnishings all mod cons washer and dryer which was great coming home with everything clean, dish washer, and fridge massive it was 5 star ⭐️ all the way, the bars in the pool and hotel are lovely and you can swim till 11pm which was great as it was so hot, I would recommend to anyone to try book here , I was a paradise place and thanks to the lovely Scottish barman for entertaining and every need with a smile ❤️❤️❤️ Amazing place to stay

We stayed here at Sunset Cove having booked direct with the owner of a particular condo, this guarantees which condo you get rather than booking with the rentals office and you get a far more personal service, we booked direct with travel advisor and I cannot fault it, the owner was so easy and pleasant to deal with and the condo was amazing, modern, clean with every amenity down to beach towels and pool floats/toys,and not to forget Alexa that was fun, certainly kept us entertained and was like a new toy! Everything worked and had fabulously fast broadband. Didn't turn the TVs on so can't comment about that, wasn't on holiday to watch Tv! The cove is lovely to swim or snorkel, can be a bit milky occasionally for snorkelling but that down to the weather but it kept out big swells so safe to swim, bottom can be a bit rocky so care is needed. Pool was great, clean with plenty of sun beds, plus waterfalls and a small pool for tots. Views from the condo were stunning overlooking the beach and pool. Swim up bat was handy for grabbing lunch without getting out of the pool which also meant you stayed cool, the food was quick and tasty too, service excellent, staff friendly. The beach was also clean and had plenty of sun beds and you could see sunsets every night from the beach or from most, if not all, the condos. Stunning, With the new Margaritaville Resort next door (which is stunning since its renovation from the previous Treasure Island so a definite improvement!) we found they favoured using the pool located in Subset cove, so some days they seemed to swamp it, with groups of people standing about in the pool with drinks, nothing major though, no one ever used the hotel pool it was always empty but it doesn't have the greenery that the cove pool has, plus they seem to play music around the whole pool, but sunset cove only has it by the bar, so you can't hear it at the other end. There was also still some building/renovation work going on at the hotel so some noise could be heard plus the builders spent a long time looking down at the pool which may also be another reason no one used that pool. We had an issue with one family that despite pool rules stating no loud music they had speakers under their subbed with music so loud we could hear in in our third floor condo, we did seek out the manager who dealt with the issue promptly, I don't understand why people go to this gorgeous places and then feel we all need to listen to their music at extremely high volumes. Sunset Cove is a great location close to a market and plenty of restaurants, plenty of parking but you have to go around the resort to get to the cove, All in all we had a great holiday here though I do recommend booking directly with owners to get the specific condo you want, but either way you'll be in a stunning location.

My family (me, my wife, 2 teens) stayed at Sunset Cove condos for a week in mid June 2017. Our 2 bedroom condo was spacious, clean (thanks Lulu), has a full kitchen and had a great view of the ocean. The beach offers beautiful nightly sunsets and cruise ships; the swimming cove is good for swimming, but has low visibility for snorkeling. The open air restaurant has good food and the grounds have beautiful flowers and manicured grass. The swim up bar is a great way to relax with a rum drink and sandwich after a day with dolphins or stingrays. The staff is friendly and helpful (as is everyone on the island). Ritu makes great smoothies; Ace and Russell make great “grab and go” breakfasts (bagels, oatmeal…); Kayla arranged horse back riding. Very close by there is Divers Supply to rent snorkel gear or buy souvenirs and Big Daddy's liquor store for beverages. Public Buses are very convenient and half the price of a taxi; they are vans driven by friendly locals. Simply wave at one and they will stop and take you to George Town or the Turtle Farm or anywhere on Seven Mile beach. Kirk market is a half mile walk for groceries - we grilled dinner on the condos’ grills and made breakfast in the condo ...and they will pick up the cart if you leave it near the street. We had a great time and would go back.

We were very happy with our accommodations. It was a nicely sized unit and mostly in very good condition. We had a warm reception for Debbie when we arrived. She was very cheerful and helpful. There are six buildings in the complex, three on each side the central beach/pool area. Closest to the ocean is a three story unit in each side that directly face the ocean. They would give you the best view. Behind each of those buildings are two, three story buildings that stretch away from the beach. Each of the inside buildings (closest to the central area) have an ocean view, but the farther you get from the beach, the narrower the view. We chose unit 322 because it was on the beach end of the building. That gave us an ocean and pool view, which was nice. The inside buildings and outside buildings are separated by a fire lane. I don't what kind of view you'd get from those buildings, but notice in the contract that "garden view" just means you can't see the water. Don't expect to see a garden from your patio. Everything in the unit worked fine, with the exception of the shower, which was a bit cludgy. It was a fancy wall-of-water gizmo that also had a spray wand and a pie pan shower head. The shower worked fine, but the other features not so much. I thought the breakwall enclosing swim area was kind of silly when I saw it online, but it turned out to be pretty handy. It kept the surf down when the wind started to blow and made the area great for swimming laps. We ventured out into the ocean a few times to snorkel. There is a marker buoy 200 yards out that identifies a decent reef. You will see a fair amount of fish. We saw the biggest lobster we've ever seen. It's obvious that cruise ship snorkel trips stop here once in a while because the small fish come right up to you looking for a handout. Take along a few slices of bread or something like that in a zip loc bag. When you get to the reef, give the fish a minute to find you, then start feeding. You will be swarmed! Surprisingly, there are chickens everywhere on the island, including Sunset Cove. We had a rooster and two hens. Each morning we enjoyed the rooster letting everyone know he thought it was time to get up. The grounds are nicely maintained. Getting to the resort is a little weird because there's another hotel between Sunset Cove and the road. Once you were in Sunset Cove, that's a non-issue. The bonus is that you can also go over and use their pool if you like. We thought ours was better. There's also a nicer bar in the lobby of that hotel that you can walk to in one minute from Sunset Cove. Nasty bar staff there, though. Ours were friendlier. There is a security person on duty from evening until morning. He might be around during the day, too, but I didn't notice. There are plenty of chairs and umbrellas and a nice sandy beach, but you need to be alert when you wade into the water. It's mostly sand, but there are some good size rocks that would be real toe breakers if you aren't careful.

The condo that we stayed in was definitely not worth the price. All the furniture was outdated, the bed spreads all smelt really bad as if they had not been laundered in months (maybe years) and were covered with stains; the second bathroom had no hot water and the place was not very clean. The sofa in the living room reeked of sweat and body odor and we were afraid to even sit on it. The Wi-Fi service was a joke, the three of us could not surf the web at the same time, the cable TV has only 20 channels and the telephone in the unit did not work properly; all calls had to be made using the speaker phone. When we asked for a room change, they showed us another room but one of the televisions was not working. The other two options were to move to one of their other properties and pay almost $1,000 more or simply vacate the unit and get our money back. The young lady at the reservations office was very unfriendly and quite rude. We would DEFINITELY NOT recommend this place to anyone. The units look NOTHING like the pictures on their website. Overall horrible experience.

We spent two weeks in May in unit 131, a three-bedroom condo front and center on the sandy beach, 50 feet from the water. We had a large patio overlooking the little man-made cove that is great for kids and people who just want to sit in the water There's an opening in the rip-rap where you can go out into the open ocean. The buoy that marks the far end of the reef is just 200 yards out, and the snorkeling there is excellent. We saw blue tangs, sergeant majors, wrasses, parrot fish, squirrel fish, cuttlefish, rays, puffer fish, box fish, barracuda, spiny lobsters, a basking shark and a turtle. The water is warm and clear (less clear in the man-made cove than in the open water). My only reservation is that occasionally jet skiers came inside of the buoy line, so it's best to wear a colorful rash guard so you'll stand out. The condo wasn't the newest on the beach, but it was well-maintained and comfortable, and I loved having a kitchen so we didn't have go hunting for restaurants all the time. There are, however, many nearby restaurants. Sometimes we ate at the pool bar. XQ's Pizza Bar and Grill is a two minute walk out to the street. Sunset cove is at the very southern end of Seven Mile Beach, with a little rocky outcropping separating it from all the hustle and bustle of the big resorts. You can walk around the outcropping on stepping stones if you want more crowd, or if you want to go to other restaurants or dive shops just a few minutes up the beach. Or you can enjoy the solitude of Sunset Cove.
