This hotel is very old and dated. Not much has been done to make it look better. The rooms actually smell very musty like they have gotten water in them at some time and we were on a high floor. The paint is peeling off the balconies and really looks bad. The all inclusive is ok for breakfast and lunch... More

Sonesta Maho is perfectly located next to SXM airport. The surroundings buzz with nightlife activity and dining. The hotel boasts a large lobby with bar lounge. Rooms are dated but comfortable and clean. Restaurants were well staffed and food was delicious. Although the view from my window saw two mango trees we did not stay in the room much during... More
