Hi All, looking for an additional Hyatt week. Already own a Diamond at Coconut. Thinking a spring week at Sunset Harbor would be nice. Which are your favorite Bldings, Layouts/Units and views. Thanks!

Easy one to answer: Building 5, then Building 1. Third floor. Sorted.

Hi Thanks for the info. Any thoughts on 111? Its the end unit ground floor in Bldg 1. Looks like a lock off which I like. I usually look for higher floors. Appreciate the input.

Won't have nearly as nice a view. 111 is set back and there's a lot between you and the Gulf.

Any noise issues in Bldg 5 from the cruiseships? I saw a unit 514 available as well.

There's going to be noise from cruise ships regardless. It's like airplanes at Windward. You're not getting away from it. And there's air tours over the harbor. Jimmy Buffett fans doing their usual hooliganism. Nobody stays in Old Town for the peace and quiet.

I wouldn't want first floor in any SH building. You're right on top of the pool.

If looking for units that have both a pool and direct oceanview, 524 and 534 are the ones (both are lockoff units.

If looking for units that have a the best direct oceanview, 532 and 533 are the ones (both are upper floor townhouse units so there are two balconies to view the sunsets from.)

FWIW: While 521 and 531 have a direct oceanview, they are right along Sunset Lane and will experience more noise from the street and harborwalk than any other units at HSH. They also have the smallest balconies out of all the units at HSH.

Agree with ScoopLV, wouldn't want any first floor unit at HSH.

Unit 111 is in an odd location. If you have the 1 BR section, you are at ground level facing the BBQ grills and pool chairs. If you have the studio, you are next to the laundry/cleaning operation. Move up to 121 or 131 and those units are very quiet. Building 1 has the largest units at the resort as it was the first constructed and served as a model for new buyers.

Thank you so much for sharing that valuable knowledge! 111 is definitely off the list. Do you feel the same about the first floor units? Specifically 514?

I really do not like any of the first floor units in Bldg. 5. They are right on the harbor walk with all kinds of foot traffic and chatter. The veranda for Unit 514 (1BR) faces the pool with a side view of the marina but it's really not private. For other first floor units in other buildings, they somehow feel like the "orchestra pit" with a lack of privacy.

But, forest for the trees, they're all better than dealing with the airplanes and distance of the other two. I'd trade in to any of those units. But if I was going to use my week, I'd want building 5, third floor, and just deal with the noise for the three hours each night of "heathen run amok" time. Building one is bigger. But 5 is big enough. And... THAT VIEW!

That's the right configuration, but somehow the image shown seems to be one floor higher. I could be wrong. The actual unit is the bottom floor of the three.

These are views from 232. Its a two story townhouse layout. (3rd&4th flr) not on the water from but great views.

I also own a 411 unit week, ground floor pool view that backs onto front street. When the cruisers are here, there are many more people present that in the pic.
There was once a problem with trucks beeping when backing up the road in the early hours, but that was resolved somehow. Don;t hear them anymore.
Really don't notice much noise, but that could be because we spend time inside in the pool end balcony/living area.

While I like the 232 view and two balcony's, the way we spend our time, we are mostly out somewhere in KW or out at the pool.
Don't use the balcony that much.

Thank you so much for sharing these pictures! I didnt realize the backs of bldg 4 back up on front street. Makes sense. I would like to buy a week 10-14 at Sunset. All the imput really helps. Now if I could only find one available at a reasonable price! Seems like prices have gone up.
