Maho super market, pharmacy and plenty of restaurant options within walking distance. The famous Sunset Beach bar is right there and has been recently renovated/expanded to a really nice attraction spot so... More

I stayed at Alegria for 6 days with my partner and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. We upgraded to a larger room with sea view which was excellent. The room was clean and very spacious, our view was excellent, the staff were friendly and accommodating, and the proximity to many attractions put the icing on the cake. A day on Maho... More

I stayed here for a layover en route to the British Virgin Islands. It was ideal from an airport proximity perspective. I was very pleased to receive a friendly welcome on arrival at reception, and the room was spacious, clean and cool.
