This was our 2nd time at Sunshine and it was even better than the first, as they now have new hosts/managers who have now added breakfast included, as well as in the rooms little touches like flowers on table and "folded towel art" on bed. By no means is this a fancy, 5 star hotel but its the best hotel... More

Located a few meters from Ferry. Not quite on the ocean but close enough. Air conditioning and hospitality was exceptional. Convenient pharmacy on site. Everyone was helpful, friendly and the place was super clean! Bars and restaurants are close but far enough away to be peaceful

We felt really welcome when we stayed at the Sunshine Hotel. The room is very clean and the staff is great in providing the best service. The breakfast is included and the upstairs hall provides all sorts of entertainment like board games and table tennis. I would really recommend this place, it is worth the money!
