This resort is in a great location right near the beach (although it does not have its own beach) and right near Maho village which has plenty of bars, clubs, restaurants, shops, casino, and nightlife. Mullet bay and Maho Bay are walking distance. Also right next to the airport which is cool to see the planes take off and land.... More

My husband and I have enjoyed staying at the Sonesta Maho for 10 years, and looking forward to our 11th in a few weeks! The hotel is conveniently located in the Maho village with lots of shops and restaurants, as well as being close to the airport. A highlight is watching the planes land and take off from the beach!... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. It's comfortable, located close to the airport and it's on the bus route so you can use public transportation to get to town. The beds are comfortable, rooms are clean, minibar is stocked with water, beer and sodas. Staff is friendly, check in and out was smooth and pleasant. The food was good on the... More

We stayed at the Maho for 6 days during February. The good: Just 3 minutes from the airport, the staff are extremely friendly, rooms are clean, they offer more entertainment than most all inclusive resorts, and the place is a fun spot to stay. The bad: The resort is hardly all inclusive. They boast 5 restaurants on their website,the truth... More

We stayed at the Sonesta Maho for 3 nights last weekend. I am enjoy travelling and am usually not a complainer, but a few things struck me as negatives. The (one) a la carte restauarant had the same menu every night. I did ask if they menu ever changes, but the front desk didn't know and referred me to ask... More

Nice hotel if you don't mind your view over a waste water treatment plant. About one third of the rooms look out to this view and the smell of human excrement is horrible. Make sure you get a pool view room and do not settle for anything else. Even with a pool view you still may get a wiff now... More

We visited Jan31- June6 : Location: Great, love the beach and the planes, so close to the French side and the street is safe and full of small shops. Personel/ Service: People are nice but unlike here in the USA they don't go by "costumer is always right" Being relaxed and nice will help you get a great service. Property:... More

Stayed one week with hubby and 18 yr old son....if you are looking to be able to get up, walk down to a lounger on the beach, walk into the ocean, take a stroll on the beach,and relax by the sea this is not the resort for you. The hotel is not beachfront. There is a sandy area overlooking the... More

We are actually still here and enjoying the weather and the company of a small group of guests whom we met early on in our stay. We are staying at the brand new five star addition to the place called the Ocean Point. It will probably be nice when it is completed, but it's a long way from being finished.... More
