“Great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I had a very pleasant stay at Sonesta for girls getaway. Right on the beach and the staff was so pleasant and informative about things to do in the area. Not within walking distance to downtown, but you can take the bus, shuttle, taxi, or water taxi (with the bus being the most affordable). Taxi to downtown is no more than $15. Right next to the hotel, there are many food and bar options. Excited to come back.

My best friend and I stayed here for 8 days in June and although the first night they didn't have the room we requested but, changed it the next morning and price adjusted it. The view amazing, location is quiet and a bit of a walk to the restaurants but it's sooo worth it. I plan on going back with my fiance soon and hopefully this is where will have our wedding. This hotel was beautiful and I can't wait to return !!
Staff, AMAZING I felt comfortable there.

From check in to check out my husband and I enjoyed every second!!! Walking into the beautiful lobby to the smiling faces at the front desk was a good sign, but when we opened our room door (1206) we were extremely pleased at the beautiful white decor, bedding, perfect size flat screen tv & best of all the amazing large window looking out to the beach. The king size bed was so comfortable as well as the pillows, the room was squeaky clean, we loved the shower as well! For us it was heavenly!!! My husband and I stayed for the weekend to have a romantic last minute (booked room morning of stay) weekend without our children and that we did! We loved the surrounding area not to busy & not far from the busier area where you can find all the restaraunts & bars. During our stay we ate next door at PlanBurrito and it was ok, and both morning's we had a nice breakfast at ocean view delight just a few doors down. We did not dine at the hotel unfortunately I wish we would have! We did enjoy drinks by the pool and had a very pleasant bartender. I would absolutely recommend this hotel and I can not wait to go back!!!

Room Tip: We were in room 1206 the penthouse above was a tad bit noisey but not bad.

Dear HicksFam05,

Thank you so much for your kind review of the property, it sounds like you and your husband had the perfect weekend escape! :) I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the convenience of the property to nearby locations as well. It's slightly off the beaten path so you have that privacy, but close enough to get to everything. We hope to see you back on your next visit, please send me a note at ldufresne@sonesta.com and I'll be sure to make your experience extra special!

Best,
Lindsay

A little background behind our stay at this "motel". We cruised on the Oasis of the Seas for the 4th of July and we needed a one night hotel stay after the cruise. We used priceline name your own price and focused on 4 star hotels on the beach. Unfortunately we won this hotel. This hotel was so far from a 4 star hotel, I honestly believe it should be 2 stars. The lobby was run down, the pool was extremely tiny, there were no perks on the beach, and the staff were not professionally trained. Furthermore, the rooms were disgusting, beds small, and they did not even have a concierge. We went from looking forward to enjoying our day on the beach to dreading the hours and counting down our time at this hotel. I would NEVER recommend this hotel to anybody.

Dear Steph C,

I am very sorry to hear of how displeased you were with your recent stay with us. If you are able to elaborate on some of the items to me personally (staff, room issues), I would appreciate it so I can have a better understanding of what you in particular experienced since we typically do not receive this type of feedback and I want to be sure it doesn't happen again. My personal email is ldufresne@sonesta.com, please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

The beds are small, they don't fit 2 people!!!! Small swimming pool too. The only advantage is that you have the beach in front, only a few steps. Location in a zone with limited bars and restaurants.

Dear Anniki84,

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you were displeased with the size of beds, we try our best to be candid on the website in saying that they are double beds and not queen, but I can see how that can be confusing. If there were any other issues you experienced that affected your stay, please contact me directly at ldufresne@sonesta.com, and I will be happy to look them.

Lindsay

The rooms sea view are fantastic and easy enjoyable via a large window. Nice air condition and free wifi. Also there was a sensibly priced, good value, wifi upgrade available.

We stayed at the hotel 7/2 - 7/5 and it was awesome! From excellent customer service to the great location, this hotel provided everything we needed for a quick girl's weekend. Hotel staff, Djamal, Chris, Heydie and Suzette made sure that we were taken care of. Ask for room on the higher floors to get one of the most spectacular views you will ever see of the Atlantic Ocean. The rooms are very modern and spacious. We are already planning our return.
