Resort was nice. Could have used some updating.

Enjoyed our stay. Not too much night life beside casino and karaoke. Went to Cheris for dinner show across the street from the resort, which was very entertaining with great food and drinks reasonably priced.

Beautiful island but that was it.

First I'd like to say the island of St. Maarten is beautiful and I will definitely be going back, I just won't be staying at this resort. To make it as simple as possible: Pros: hotel was clean, it's in a good location of the island. Cons: the overall quality of the food was poor. The food they had was limited even though, it was all inclusive. The restaurants had only a small window to go and eat for dinner. For half the trip we were eating on paper plates and using plastic utensils (breakfast lunch and dinner) because they ran out of glass plates and metal utensils? The resort was extremely under staffed, majority staff was rude and not accommodating. One bar tender per bar. There was no room service. There were not enough chairs around the pool to accomadate the amount of people. Decent: the spa was priced fair but was small and had no amenities to go with it other then what you paid for. The rooms were clean but there was nothing special they were equivalent to an everyday chain hotel. Casino was clean and well kept. Let me clear this up for people because it wasn't clear to me while I booked my trip. There is a beach attached to the hotel, airport beach. But it's not a beach to lounge and spend the day at. Instead you have to travel to a near by beach which are only a couple of minutes away which wasn't a problem.

Not what we thought

All vacations are good but this should have been much better. First, the resort could also be the airport hotel as it is right next to the runway and there were days jets/planes were landing every 4 minutes so don't expect to sleep on the beach; which by the way is a public beach so there are no services. If you are unfortunate enough to book a "garden view room" it will be over-looking roofs and the strip which has clubs blasting music until 2 AM. After the third day we had to ask to switch rooms which they did agree to do and the new room was fine. We were not impressed by the staff as many, not all, seemed to have attitudes and were not very friendly. The food was very good, drinks OK (wine one so so brand). Usually only 3 theme restaurants open and one is a small noisy pub and another you cook your own food on a lava rock (really). At times they seemed over-whelmed. They did not take reservations and seemed unable to give wait times. Really noting to do for kids except the obvious pool and beach and no night entertainment to speak of. Loved the island but will look next time for another place.

Good value, very nice vacation !

Friendly people, specially Alfredo (front desk) he was very accommodating, very nice to us, we celebrated our 30th anniversary and we are glad we picked this hotel. The food could have been better, we were expecting a larger variety of fish and it was only one choice every night, also lack of fruits was a concern for us. Other then that, very nice experience for us, we will recommend this hotel to all our friends. Thank you !

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!
