I had a great experience at this resort, the rooms were clean and remolded beautifully, the view was awesome. The front desk staff was very courteous and accommodating to all of my needs. I left a sweater there and when I came back for it a week later do you know the maid labeled it and placed it in bag... More

Awful place. Don't stay there!!! They state they have 4 restaurants on expedia when you book. it's a lie!! All they have is a vending machine and 4 restaurants near by in the parking lot not on the premises. You are not allowed to make a phone call from the room. I asked, why is there a phone in the...

I stayed at Alegria for 5 days with my daughter and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The room was clean and spacious, our view was excellent, the staff was friendly and accommodating, and the proximity to many attractions put the icing on the cake. Will go back again!

The staff at Alegria was very kind during every part of my stay and I enjoyed that very much. Each one of them greeted me as I walked by, which put a smile on my face.

This hotel is very well located if you want to be close to Maho beach and enjoy the landings and takeoffs of the airplanes. It's just a 2 minute walk to what makes that island so popular as it's right there by the airport. But don't let the beautiful pictures of the property on the internet fool you. I think... More

After traveling most all of my life for work, I can honestly say I have never been so concerned for our safety as I was at this property. The advertising and website are incredibly misleading.

Stayed here for three nights on a work trip with two colleagues. I can definitely say I'll be back for a more leisurely time. The hotel is in a fantastic location, right next to the famous Maho Beach. If you're into planes, you'll love this location.
