There are many mixed reviews, so I'm adding my experience at Sonesta Maho. We spent 3 days during April 2013 at the resort.
The front desk is very slow - but never once was any of the staff rude. The activities desk is not available during the weekend which was frustrating because I tried to book activities via email and they told me to wait until I arrived. They should have noted they were closed on the weekends, and on Monday morning the line to get help was very long!
We stayed in the Ocean Terrace and the room could use some remodeling. We never had hot water, which made taking showers uncomfortable. But the balcony view of the pool and ocean was remarkable! And the room was very clean.
We did not get all inclusive because we planned to get out and experience the island - not just the resort. In fact, we never ate at the resort. You can find some great places close by that include entertainment and great drinks.
If you are adventurous, get out and see the island. We did a 3hr ATV tour one day and the 3hr Rhino ride another day. Both were great and gives you a chance to see the island.
