Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino

The Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino is a serene Caribbean haven - and St. Maarten's premier, limitless all-inclusive, adults-only resort. Overlooking the beautiful Great Bay Harbour and resting on a glorious stretch of white sand beach, the Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino is only a short 10 minute walk from the island's capital of Philipsburg. Guests can enjoy the best of both worlds with a prime beachfront location and easy access to a quaint downtown, which offers great shopping, excellent restaurants, and exciting entertainment and nightlife.
Location: On the Dutch side of the island, directly on a beach with palm trees. Only a short walk from Philipsburg, and approximately 30 minutes by car from the airport.
