We were suppose to stay a week and probably wouldn't stay again. It was a great location in Maho Beach. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. There were mangy looking cats roaming around which was a little disheartening. The room was comfortable but dated. The worst thing about this place was the horrible smell in the room. We bought...

We exchanged using interval international. I have found that a lot of their properties are run down and dirty. This one is no exception. My boyfriend and I are a young couple who travel quite often. Check in time is 4 pm and check out time is 10 am. There is a place to keep your luggage but there is... More

The pool was just up from the beach and there was the turtle beach club bar just off the pool. You can get around by bus $2. per... More

We enjoyed the balcony for morning coffee and breakfast the most since the very tall v-shaped building sheltered the grounds from the city & road noise and there was an excellent view of the water. We also would go out there in the evenings. Just make sure you bring a Clip-On if the mosquitoes like you. We didn't use any... More

I just arrived here yesterday and can't put into words how disgusting this place is. It is very dirty and truly a poor excuse for a resort. These are the problems I've noted: - TV in bedroom doesn't work. The screen is snow white. No channels come in. - Air conditioner unit in bedroom is installed in the ceiling above... More

Stayed at this hotel from 13th June 2015 to 20th June 2015 and it was great. The staff is friendly we had a late flight and they gave us a courtesy room which was so nice and surprising. The grounds are immaculate, the pool and hot tub is great and the beach is breathtaking and amazing. In terms of location... More

Spent 2 1/2 weeks at LaPlague and everything was wonderful! Staff was very helpful and friendly smiles all around from the front desk, maids, groundskeepers, security guards, pool and grounds absolutely perfect. Couldn't have had a better vacation. Coming to the island for the past 20+ years and can't wait for next year.
