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

Nice hotel, nothing fancy. Clean room. Food was good to great (depending on the which night), staff were friendly. Overall, the place is more like a 4 star hotel. I enjoyed my stay. I was there from February 12 to February 19 (2015). I like the 3 choices where we can eat inclusively. The nicer beach, Mullet Beach, is about... More

I stay at the Sonesta Maho for business roughly 4x a year. The place is nice, the buffet is nice, the scenery is nice. Nothing very flashy. Kind of hit or miss sometimes as the rooms in the tower are the place you want to be. Somewhat "moist" in your all of the time and the shower water does tend... More

There are other great reviews on here which provide thorough reviews on the experience of staying at Sonesta Maho Beach. Please refer to those reviews as our experience was similar. We had an enjoyable time, but the service is minimal at best in every aspect. I would suggest tipping for better quality service. Yes you shouldn't have to, but it... More
