Next door

The only downside to the resort is a lack of direct on the beach. Although a short walk the transition can be a bit awkward. The RFID door keys are excellent, you never forget or loose your key.

Not my favorite

At first glance, our group liked this resort. Rooms facing ocean view were very nice and comfortable and staff appeared to be overall very nice and accommodating. There is only one pool and I much prefer to swim in the sea. The sea was calm our first couple of days but then became too stormy to swim in. We found the food to be average at all locations. Nothing overly impressed us and you won't go hungry but not my favorite for good overall. We really disliked the lava rock restaurant where you were presented with a plate of raw food all stacked together to cook on your own hot plate. It felt very unsanitary to us . . . Our biggest issue was that there was a terrible stomach flu running rampant around the resort and two members of our group became ill. While I realize that it wasn't the resorts fault that someone came with a contagious virus, there was little communication from the hotel on preventative measures other than hostesses at restaurants asking you to wash and/or sanitize your hands. The second half of our trip was terrible with half of the group sick and the other half worried if they were going to get sick. We were happy to leave this beautiful place. Plus we really didn't enjoy being so close to the airport. The planes landing were not too loud but the planes taking off were too loud for us.

Worst Carbbean vacation yet

Situated directly next to airport runway. Constant air traffic noise. Lack of usable beach. Sea wall with beach chairs on a overlook. Rooms----clean but poorly designed, especially bathroom. No vanity or shelves for toiletries. Very seldom did we have hot water for showers. No shampoo, conditioner, etc. Coffee not replenished and very sparsely at that. We complained at the front desk on a daily basis and still nothing was done. Food...UGH!!! Same offerings all week and usually cold. Lack of any tropical fruit.(mango, papaya, passion fruit, etc.). No variation on menu - same every day. On a positive note, the staff was very courteous and friendly and the bars were well stocked with top shelf brands.

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!
