Pina, The resort is located in Maho which offers some of the best nightlife on the island. Also your visit includes access to our Great Bay Resort and we just featured a great Local Latin Band there on Monday night. Glad you did enjoy the Sunny St. Maarten weather. Please reach out to me if I can be of assistance,...

We spent a week at Sonesta Maho beach. We stayed on the 7th floor in a newer remodelled room, it was acceptable, wasn't lavish in the least bit, but clean and acceptable. Overall the property is just worn down and tired looking, really needs a major renovation which I'm sure will take place after the "Viewpoint" sister property next door...

Hello, It's unfortunate that you could not enjoy your stay to the maximum, seems if you choose another visit to St. Maarten, you might be better accommodate at the New Ocean Point Resort which offers poolside service, even butler service in a modern setting and much more!

I went to the sonesta maho beach resort in St Maarten two weeks ago in the first week on November 2015. The resort is in the process of being updated. The pool is newly redone, and the dining area is adequate with a nice view of the landing planes. I found the stuff cooking the egg omelet sin the morning...

We were here for one of my friends 40th. The atmosphere was amazing. Location is key and this place has it. The entire staff makes each person feel as though you are the only one they are catering to. Food, drinks, fun, all the best. I will not book anywhere else in St Maarten.

This hotel is a beautiful one. Has a garden and the package comes with dinner and lunch and breakfast buffet. On Wednesday nights they have party outside. Rooms very beautiful and if you come to Sint Maarten you must live in this hotel. Lots of amenities. Go to the hotel website to find out more. Must come to this hotel.

Good little hotel. We are not an " all-inclusive" type of travelers, so we didn't spend much time in the hotel. But if we would of been that type - it wouldn't be enough for us. It has only 1 fine dining restaurant and 1 cafe. Bars doesn't have a big variety. Couldn't get Mojito anywhere in the resort :)...

Hello, I wouldn't quite say "little" hotel, but I know what you mean, its sort of a term. I do encourage guests to also enjoy all the island has to offer and get the full experience of St. Maarten, so Im glad you managed to do exactly this.

My wife & I just returned from Sonesta Maho, Nov 22, 2015 which is currently under construction. This hotel has not been updated since sometime in the 1970's I am sure. The pictures on the internet are very outdated, and not to be believed. I would grade this property at 2 out of 5, base on the quality of the...
