At the quaint Sunrise Beach Hotel on Paradise Island, guests enjoy the quiet low-key vibe without sacrificing close proximity to island attractions, shopping and dining. At this favorite beachfront hotel, most families will find their match with one- to five-bedroom villas including multiple bathrooms, fully appointed kitchens, terraces or patios, and separate living areas with pullout sofabeds and lounge sofas comfortable for one person to sleep on. All rooms are air-conditioned and many villas include a washer/dryer.
You’ll save significantly by dining in, but if you’re looking to dine out, Viola’s Bar and Cafe is just steps from both the waterfall pool and children’s pool and Archie’s Bar serves refreshments beachside. It’s a five-minute walk to the Atlantis where you’ll find 12 restaurants, and 1.5 miles to historic downton Nassau. Groceries can be ordered ahead online and the staff will stock your kitchen before you arrive.
At the pool and in the ocean, water activities abound, including exceptional snorkeling and access to banana boat rides, para-sailing, jet skis, deep-sea diving, wave runners and more. Additional area attractions include a zoo and botannical gardens as well as Blue Lagoon Island where you can swim with the dolphins.

Very friendly and helpful staff, great beach that was reasonably quiet when we were there, very comfortable and clean apartment and great bed. The resort is about a mile from the Atlantis resort but still quiet, very relaxed come as you are feel.

Great location! We had a room right across from the pool. Our neighbors were kind of loud, but that's nothing against the property. They cleaned up the pool every morning and make the property look good. Also very secure, there are 2 gates to make sure that people from the beach can't just walk to the villas; and also to make sure that people who don't stay there can't get to the beach without the code. They had men down at the beach that put chairs out and umbrellas for us. They were very nice. On weekends it's a little crazy, with locals walking down the beach to sell you things, but overall I think this is a great place to say - and WAY cheaper than Atlantis!
