We were able to book a great room for a great price a day before checking in. We stayed 6 nights in a room that was spacious and had a fantastic view on the beach and the ocean. The front office personnel was outstanding. Especially the manager Gita who went out of her way to make sure we had everything... More

We stayed here for 6 nights. Business trip. Excellent, clean, happy staff, great spacious room and bathroom, comfortable bed and crisp linens. The hotel lobby is small, but nicely decorated, has a small but well stocked bar, with a great, happy, and skilled bartending staff. Bar serves wide variety food. The pool area is small but cute and stays open... More

fl native came down for a short trip. the location is ok but far from most of the action down the beach but the hotel is nice and clean. good service. only downfall is the expensive valet parking. .there are a nice small set of bars near by which make up for this distance from beachplace.

After an 18 hour flight from Australia, it was so nice to be genuinely warmly welcomed to this hotel. We spent a single night here prior to joining our cruise on the Allure of the Seas. The hotel occupies a prime beachfront location, with stunning views out over the ocean, and amazing sunrises. Rooms are clean and well maintained, have... More

Hotel room was small. Staff was not at all helpful. Price was as high or higher than nicer hotels in the area. Was so dissapointed with it that we checked out a day early and booked another room for a lesser price at a much nicer hotel . Lobby at Sonesta was chaotic. Not even a coffee maker in the... More

The hotel is in an amazing location which gets you very interested. The hotel is partly under construction which makes it horrible to relax. The bathroom in the suites is the size of a small closet. They say the suites are 380 Sq ft but most of it is a hallway that really isn't necessary. The regular deluxe rooms are... More

Dear Anastasia S, thanks for sharing your comments. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. The hotel is not under construction and no projects are taking place, so I am not sure what you are reffering to. I am also not clear with the velvet comment. I do apologize for the A/C problem.

Only stayed 2 nights but wish it was longer, hotel is right on seafront and all rooms have ocean view. Staff were excellent and seemed to genuinely care that you were happy. They gave us a $25.00 credit for food from restaurant when we checked in which was a welcome surprise and I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting... More
