It was my first visit to the resort, but it won't likely be my last. The rooms were very clean, the staff was friendly, and I really have nothing positive things to say about my experience. The seafood buffet is a must try

The golf package we received at Sonesta was out of this world. The people and staff were extremely friendly and it made for a great atmosphere to kick back and enjoy a vacation. The rooms were spacious and great, with a very short walk to the beach. There are so many golf courses to play, I could stay all summer... More
