Sunset at the Palms is located in Negril Jamaica. Located on Norman Manley Blvd. on bloody bay beach it’s an all inclusive resort that caters to couples and adults. While children sometimes accompany their parents its more the exception than the norm. Your all inclusive vacation at this resort includes all meals, drinks and tips.
The resort is split in two by the road which can be quite busy at times, thankfully the resort provides a crossing guard who will help ensure you cross safely. On the beach side there is of course the sandy beach and sea, but also lounge chairs, a bar and grill, and the water sports facilities. The bar opens each morning at 10 am, quite a while after the beach officially opens at 7 am so if you want some water in the early morning be sure to bring it with you from the other side of the resort.
The grill features standard fare, burgers, fries, and sandwiches amongst other things and is open for lunch daily. Being on bloody bay beach the water and sand are magnificent and if your a beach person this stretch is more than big enough for the resort.
The rest of the resort is located on the other side of the road away from the sea. This means that none of the rooms have ocean / beach views if that is a consideration for your trip. The rooms however are beautiful. Built as tree houses each building holds two rooms, and each room offers a private balcony. The washrooms are nice and modern, and the room has a cabin feel to it.
The resort offers 3 restaurants including the beach grill. The buffet is open for all three meals, and the Al a carte restaurant is open 4 nights a week on a first come first served basis.
The food selection is decent on a nightly basis, but tends to get repetitive after a few days, the breakfast selection doesn’t change at all. For its price level the resort offers good food, but needs to improve selection, and little issues such as having more than 2 bottles of ketchup on hand for the entire breakfast servings.

The pool area offers a good amount of loungers, as a lot of guests spend the days at the beach, there is a swim up bar and a big jacuzzi as well.
The resort has one tennis court, a spa with massage and nail service, nightly entertainment, and a visiting fitness instructor, but other than that there are few activities to partake in at the resort. During the day there isn’t much to do besides drink, swim and relax.
Its a good resort, the location is beautiful and the price is fair. They could offer more for guests to do especially in the daytime. If you are looking for a romantic spot, and like to relax this could be the place for you.
If you prefer to be more social, and enjoy more activities you may want to look for a larger resort.
