Review:   Really beautiful place, actually one of the nicest I've ever been to. Great facilities and great food. But VERY weird all inclusive option. You can always get what you want, but only at selected places at selected times. Note that you CAN get a hold of everything, but you might have to walk to the other side of the island to get it which is weird. Otherwise, great place. Would totally recommend it!

Review:   Natural beauty is perfectly protected. Employees are very kind and nice. All inclusive drink menu is limited. Many honeymooners, so don't expect to feel special unless you buy extra packages. But you are very special for your live and that's what matters😉 They provided a complimentary fruit basket and a sparkling drink on the 3rd day of our stay. Big adventure trip was not as good as we expected. Didn't see the whale shark. Marta and the turtles were very small and the water was not clear enough. Renting bike is a good choice but bikes are very old and hurts your butt at the end of the day 🤣 Shows at 21.30 at main bar are ok so far.

Review:   Lovely place to enjoy and relax. We had a beach bungalow and it was just perfect, straight out of the door and you are on the beach. Hakim who looked after our bungalow was excellent, kept it absolutely spot less, couldn't have asked for any one better. Would highly recommend this resort and spa, we hope to come back in 2020.

Review:   Visited Sun Island with family. We took a full board package (via Island Voyage Holidays) and stayed at the Superior Beach Bungalow for 4 days and 3 nights. We had an absolutely lovely time. The food was excellent, there was a wide array of games/activities and the sun-kissed beaches were to die for. Rooms were clean and the staff extremely friendly. Only minor areas of improvement were housekeeping (we felt the daily room cleaning could have been better) and our rooms (while they were on the beach, they were quite far out from the sea). But neither of these take away from the experience. It was one of our best holidays; most of that is courtesy the hospitality and attention to detail at Sun Island Resort.

Review:   Very beautiful island. Spent 1 night at beach cottage & 2 nights at water villas. It's a beautiful property. Has so many activities on island and they arrange water activities easily. Has nice bar and alcohol is not that expensive. Default restaurant for Water Villa has bad service but default restaurant for Beach Villa is awesome. Their Araamu Spa is fantastic and the masseuse are expert. 2 things disappointed, no corals near the property and restaurant service slow and non-personal. That's it otherwise the rooms, property and activities are awesome. Must visit.
