We traveled in June to San Pedro with a group of teachers to do some support work with one of the local elementary schools. This is our 6 year on the island and each year we fall more and more in love with the people who call San Pedro their home. We also figure out each year what matters most for our lodging. This year 2 of the teachers in the group were also "foodies". Nice traveling partners to have! We decided to try to find a place that had a full kitchen so they could put their talents and interests to work for the benefit of the group. We stumbled on to Sunset Beach after seeing their connection to the Pack For a Purpose organization and we couldn't have asked for a better set up for the week. We not only had a fully stocked kitchen, great space to relax and reenergize before heading off to school each morning but we also found ourselves tucked into a little community of caring, friendly people. From our first contact with booking, to check in, to fellow travelers also staying there, Barbara, Juan Carlos, Rosa and Chapin are what make Sunset Beach the place to stay. The teaching team will return next June. We hope to be back to Sunset Beach because it just makes sense!
we had a lovely, two story apartment, with balconies overlooking the pool and the ocean. beautiful views. and we snorkled just off the dock. just south of san pedro town the complex misses the noise of downtown but is really quite close to the shopping and restaurants... also there are two nice restaurants within easy walking distance, one very casual (the lone star) and the other rather more upscale (the black orchid). with a little convenience around the corner we could get what we needed to cook in the very well stocked kitchen. the apartment was open and comfortable and we loved the nice rugs and curtains, the piles of towels... there was a yoga mat, ice packs, rain gear... as well as all the usual amenities of tv, tape deck, etc. the entire complex was very well cared for, and any concerns were dealt with immediately. we also loved the art work which was mostly animal themed...and... well, enough to give you the idea... we liked it!
We were a little ways from town but still within walking and/or biking distance. The suite was really lovely, very comfortable, roomy with all the comforts of home. Location on the beach was beautiful.
