First All Inclusive Resort

Sonesta Maho: Overall, hotel was good. Bedroom area was good. However, bathroom left much to be desired! Bathroom definitely needs renovation. In general the bathroom was clean. But, it was relatively dark. The shower valve was near impossible to regulate and poorly repaired. Floor tiles were cracked. Floor and wall tile grouting was poorly repaired. On an elongated toilet bowl there was a round toilet seat. Renovation, renovation, renovation. The airport which is in such close proximity to the resort was never an issue. As a matter of fact, it made the stay a bit more interesting and the trip to and from the airport was quick. Staff: All employees were very helpful and pleasant. Restaurants: Palm restaurant was good. Never got to the Ascot pub/restaurant. Jings was okay (although manager was a nice guy). Morning buffet was very good. Considered The Point restaurant "world class". Excellent food! Three cheers for the chef. The blackmark was the service at The Point. It was fair due to the lack of waiters and waitresses. The waiters and waitresses were very good and pleasant but were responsible for too many tables. This was our first all inclusive resort. Overall, would give it a very good rating, although there is no basis for comparison of an all inclusive (although we have done a fair amount of traveling). Considering it was a long weekend getaway for a relatively good price we were very satisfied.

Holiday Inn with more noise

I booked a last-minute trip and didn't get to research the hotel. It is literally right next to the international airport. Large jets fly in 15 times per day or more, sometimes starting early enough to wake us up from 8am. The quality of the hotel was similar to a Holiday Inn - basic but no frills. The food was pretty decent but nothing good enough for a "foodie person." The hotel pool swim-up bar was always loud & very rowdy with drunk 20-something's each day. There was also a lot of construction going on due to the offseason time. It was LOUD! We couldn't really nap during the day because of the noise. I would recommend staying further from the airport. Maho beach is a nice place to visit for a few hours and go back to a quieter area.

Great Vacation.

The first thing it was awsome. We had read so many negative comments and were about to change our plans, but thankfully we didn't. Everthing was as pictured, food was good and they were in the process of making a new video advertisement when we were there so it should be coming out soon. The room was just renovated and on the 5th floor so the view over the pool was so nice. Everyone was very friendly and just wanting our vacation to be wonderful which it was. I would like to say a big thank you to Ramon (he is really something) and all the bartenders at ALL the bars, Jose Miguen (Ocean Point resturant he made our friends birthday one to remember, we got lucky and he was our waiter both nights), Zora ( over housekeeping on our floor, she was a mess and so friendly) Rose at the casino and Walter (he was everthing from bartender, sang karaoke, he must work all the time because he was always there making sure the property ran smoothly. I could just go on, but I don't want to be longwinded. If this tells you anything, we are in the process of planning our next visit to Sonesta Maho for 7 nights this time because 5 were just not enough. THANKS Sonesta Maho!

What's to Love

From Sonesta Maho Beach Resort and Casino, access to Maho Promenade is a great deal! Forty boutiques, restaurants, bars and shops make it easy to shop and enjoy awesome nightlife right at the resort.

 

What We'd Change

The noise from the nearby airport isn't exactly ideal, but kids love the sight of the planes flying right over the beach! And, once you land, you're just minutes away from the resort.

 

Why You Should Go

Families on a budget love Sonesta Maho because it still offers all the amenities for a fabulous vacation getaway. You'll have plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained!
