I want to start off by saying...what wonderful staff...warm and welcoming !!! The food was delicious...not a gazillion choices like you find at some resorts(personally I think it's a waste) but whatever is there is very tasty. My only issue was my room..overlooking the sewage..could not sit out on my veranda..but I have to say the room was spotless and... More

We just returned from a 14 day stay in this resort. From the time we arrived we were welcomed by a very friendly staff who were always willing to help. The rooms were very clean and were kept that way every day. The rest of the resort had staff working constantly to keep everything clean and safe. My favourite eating... More

It was a great hotel, the only issue was our view from the room. We changed it because we had a view of the garbage dumps & walls...after we switched to the nice mountain view/maho strip. Hotel was very friendly especially the front desk servant, i forgot her name, a little dominican lady. So sweet, helpful. All in all, it... More

Dear puma_king101, Thank you for the kind review. We suggest to guests when booking to request an ocean view room/ mention better view if the view is important to them.Other people prefer to mainly sit poolside or on the beach a prefer to save a little. Glad to hear you were able to switch while here and that you enjoyed... More

I had a good experience, not loud being so close to the airport. Staff was friendly, food great, restaurant hard to get into. They should take reservations rather than having you wait fr a table. They could also do with entertainment after dinner. It sort of forces you to leave the resort or go back to your room. There was... More

I’ll start by saying I’d never come back. This hotel is barely the three stars it shows here, and even then I’ve stayed at much nicer three-star hotels. The building itself is old and pretty dreary, in my opinion. There’s nothing appealing about the lobby and the rooms, which, while relatively clean, are just old – with cracked tile, chipped...

Dear KingTheWanderlust, We do agree with what it is you deem important : "staff is friendly, welcoming" I'm sending your review to management in particular to address the security guard and wristband. It is very important to security to monitor the bands to protect the guests with bands. But it's certainly something to bring to their attention to react right... More

Location is great...the Maho area has it all. Your close to your plane...lol...unlimited Heineken and Presidente beer. The lobby greeting is a nice touch. The buffet although smaller is of much higher quality, the grounds are beauty...especially since they renovated the rear bar. Just beautiful! Sonesta usually has decent bands as entertainment which I don't find as cheesy as some... More

This was our first REAL family trip out of country and I had a lot of concerns travelling with my children. The hotel had to be clean as my eldest daughter has severe asthma and allergies.

Dear Rick C, Thank you for the review. When you book a basic room most likely you may not have a unique view. If you are interested in Ocean View it's best make this selection upon booking.
