First Place for Families!

Best place to stay with family and friends! I've been here three times, Oct 2016 being the most recent. We had a such a good time here as my best friend and her large family stayed there for a birthday celebration. I was so happy to see the new kids club which her children enjoyed. The food and ambiance at Ocean Terrace and Palms Grill made it perfect for large families and friends to enjoy. The kids were safe while the adults relaxed on Maho Beach! The staff here are all so attentive and caring. Too many to list but a special shoutout to Cheryl who always greeted us a big beautiful smile. We also enjoyed the nearby restaurants in Maho Village just steps away from the resort. The rooms were large and spacious and always clean. Truly a best place for families and a milestone celebration that I will always treasure.

Paradise Lost

I arrived at the Sonesta Hotel in St Maarten the afternoon prior to hurricane Irma destroying the island,.. everything looked fantastic when I arrived but of course everyone was battening down. After dinner all hotel guests (300 approx) were herded into the auditorium for a few hours, then as the hurricane was almost upon us we were moved again into another room, needless to say it was a horrific night lasting approx 12 hrs or more initially, the ceilings were being blasted in, water was filling the room, the building itself even swayed, people were screaming and crying. Next morning we ventured out and everything was destroyed, as has been publicised and written about in the media. After the next 5 days without power or running water, we were evacuated, the staff did all they could under trying circumstances to feed guests, keep amenities sanitized and try and make us comfortable, all the while knowing their very own homes had been destroyed. I want to make special mention of Shep of course, who took on the role of steering us out of such a nightmare, and beautiful Laura, always had a smile and upbeat, also, the little lady who constantly maintained the cleanliness of the restrooms, I never did get her name, the chef and cooks and all the staff rose to the occasion and were magnificent. The fact that we not only survived the night, but also the next 5 days, I can confidently state that without the staff, some people would've lost their lives.

Sonesta Maho was a much needed relaxing vacation. I was there for seven days.

This is my second stay at the Sonesta Maho Beach resort hotel in Sint Maarten. The entire front desk staff at the Sonesta Maho resort was very nice and accommodating. Everyone from the catering and cleaning staff was also very helpful. We enjoyed the all inclusive dining options. Alick was very polite and helpful to us as we saw him upon returning from the beach. I was able to rest. I have so many more names of the staff that I would like to thank for their hospitality. Praying for their safety and recovery from the storms.

I've been here 3 times, the first 2 visits were wonderful. 3rd, not so much.

We always had a great experience here, everyone is so nice and if there was any trouble staff was quick to take care of it. The last time we were there, 2016 December it was under new management. It was our worst trip, we were made to feel like the place had become about serving the wealthy. And the staff wasn't as nice. The 1 good thing that was always good was our bartender, Ramon ! Always friendly, always remembered us and a terrific bartender! I don't know what's going to happen now that the hurricane destroyed everything. We'd like to come back when it's ready for tourists. Hopefully things will be better next time around...looking forward to seeing Ramon...

Great time at Sonesta Maho Beach!

The two very best things about the Sonesta Maho Beach are the location and the Planes that fly over the beach. The location is right next to the airport and literally a 4-5 minute inexpensive cab ride away. Seeing the large Passenger jets fly into the airport never got boring and the kids really like it as well.There was a total of 8 of us traveling and we were always able to sit together for meals. That was very helpful. Great Pool for kids and adults. There was a nice mix of locals, Americans, and foreigners as well. Food was also better than expected, with a varying buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinners. The specialty restaurants were good as well.I would like to wish prayers and a big thank you to Nigel at the Palm Bar. He was professional, articulate and just a cool dude.Treat him right and he'll do the same. He'll be running that place soon!Also, a thank you to Cecilla in the Buffet Restaurant. She was very helpful and kind with the kids.Another shout out to Lem from Waterboys. Although not at the resort, he runs a great Jet Ski tour and was also a good dude. Once this place is back up, I'll visit again!
