5 star beach and amenities right across the street at affordable price

Jan 18th, 2020

My family and I just finished a week's stay at Sunshine Suites (this was our 3rd time staying there in the past 3 years). We've also stayed at Treasure Island (now Margaritaville), Comfort Suites, and Margaritaville, but Sunshine Suites by far is our favorite place. Being able to use the Westin Hotel's amenities (their beach, beach chairs, unlimited towels, being able to charge food & drinks to the room, pool & 2 hot tubs, wifi on the beach) is the biggest plus bc you can use Westin facilities without paying Westin prices. My family of 4 (2 teenagers, me & hubby) stayed in deluxe suite with 2 queen beds and kitchen. Great way to save money on small meals. Free breakfast is very satisfying - hardboiled eggs, pancakes, yogurt, fruit, cereal, toast, etc.- until lunch or dinner time. Short 5 min walk across street to Westin and short 5 min walk to Cost U Less (warehouse type store with no membership fee) where you can buy food items, etc. Sunshine Suites has a golf cart type vehicle to drive you across street to Westin - but we just walk the short walk. We like to stay all day at the Westin cause their beach, pool, 2 hot tubs, restaurants, etc are great - we rarely use the Sunshine Suites pool, although it is nice & clean. Westin lets you get new towels without being fussy about how many or returning wet ones (like so many other resorts do). Wifi on Westin beach and throughout their pool areas is loved by our 2 teenagers. Is the room at Sunshine Suites like the ones at Westin? Of course not, but rooms are clean & staff is friendly. We had no mold problems, we stayed on first floor with tiled floors (maybe request tiled floors?). We highly recommend as an affordable way to enjoy Westin's beach and amenities and we plan on returning there again next year. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Concept is Solid...but in Practice STINKS!!!

Jan 10th, 2020

"OOH, THAT SMELL!!! in the words of Lynyrd Skynyrd. It's the first thing that hits you when you open the door to your room. Musty, dusty, mildew smell. Hard to tell where it was coming from. But we had to air out the room the whole time we were there. We checked out a few room..all were the same. And then the AC stopped working our last night. We tried to stay in the room as little as possible. Proximity to Westin was great & using the Westin amenities was a real plus. But we had to go back to the room to sleep..ugh. Little restaurant was nice. However in retrospect, nothing Sunshiny about Sunshine Suites. Not a good choice. And it would be so easy to clean up. And then they wouldn't have these myriad of bad reviews. Do they even care? TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Three star resort

Jan 9th, 2020

My husband and I stayed here for five nights the first week of January. It is a true three star resort. We read prior reviews, and we did not have any problems with mold. We did have a few problems with the room but they were resolved fairly quickly. The bed was comfortable, and we did not hear any noise from adjoining rooms, although we were on the third floor which was great. We had a king suite with a separate living room. I think ok for 2 and maybe a child. Please keep in mind that the rooms do not have any balconies. The staff is nice and were always available. If it were not for the amenities at the Westin across the street, I would not stay here, that makes all the difference. The location is very good and unless you want to explore the island there is no need for a car. Keep in mind that taxis are really expensive. Don’t expect much from the included breakfast and you won’t be disappointed. The decaf coffee was cold everyday but if you ask Evelyn she will brew a fresh pot. The restaurant on the property is very good. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

The Good, The Bad, and The Gross

Jan 6th, 2020

What many people describe as charming, I describe as out of date. I can get past all the updates that are needed for the amenities at The Westin across the street, but I could not get past some of the truly disgusting things. 1. The rooms were dirty, my feet were black when walking on the floor, and the smell of mold and mildew was overwhelming. The cleaning crew was very friendly but not much detail was put into cleanliness. 2. The first day we were there our youngest wet the bed during his nap, probably a combination of exhaustion from traveling and drinking ocean water. It is not something he does often. To my dismay when we pulled mattress cover back it was not water/stain resistant mattress cover and the pee had soaked all the way into the mattress. It was soaking wet. We promptly went to front desk and asked for a waterproof mattress cover. They did not have one, and said they don't have them on any of their mattresses. They sent the maids to the room and they just remade the bed! We quickly pulled back new sheets to let the mattress air out. Gross, just gross. There were TONS of kids at this resort so I can only imagine how many mattresses have been peed on. They took no steps to actually clean the mattress! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

It all ends with the good price! Dont be Fooled.

Jan 4th, 2020

We read the reviews and thought it would be a decent place to stay for the price. WOW were we wrong! Knew right from the get go that it was going to be bad. We had called in advance to have connecting rooms for our kids to stay in. When we arrived they had given those rooms away. Even better was our rooms were not ready until well after the 3pm check in time. After getting into our room my wife who has a great nose smelled what seemed to be mildew and mold. After a litte searching we found a bunch of black mold around the bathroom sink and shower. We let the front desk know and they said they would send someone to do a "deep clean." That did not help and it looked the same after. We didnt think anything of it until the first night when our son, who has asthma, started to have some trouble breathing. We didnt think much of it since we was getting over a cold. We got out of the place for the whole next day. Again the next night our son was coughing and having trouble breathing all night and worse than the night before. After talking to the front desk again (who most of them were rude when you would ask for something) we decided it was time to change our flight and get our son home and away from this place. It was convenient to have the Westin to use across the street. We spend all day when we were there at the Westin. This was the only positive. I would not recommend anyone subject themselves to this place or the mold until they can do a full redo of all the rooms. Have found many other reviews here that have the same issue. Dont waste your vacation on a crappy place! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
