This resort sits on one end of Maho beach and offers excellent views of the planes landing at SXM. Beach has beautiful blue water and fine white sand(be careful as waves get rather large after planes come in). Pool is somewhat small, but there seemed to be enough loungers at pool and beach for everyone. Food is your basic all...

If I wanted to sleep at a club I would have booked one but instead the hotel brought the club to me. My hotel room was literally vibrating for hours every night from the loud club music next to the hotel. The front desk people could do nothing. I asked for a room change nothing and the music played on...

I was travelling in St Martin in Feb, and I should have written the review earlier. The stay in Sonesta was a great one. I enjoy the hotel, the beach, the french sides. You will find the food in the Sonesta well much disappointing, but you can still enjoy the trip because the people working there are really nice. I...

This is a large resort, very nice with plenty of restaurants. There is only one pool which is rather small and very crowded plus kids playing and loud music. The big downside is this resort is next to and at the end of the international airport so all day long you hear the plans taxing over for take off plus...

Just returned yesterday from a great vacation. After reading some pretty bad reviews and warning from travel agent we opted to stay at Sonesta Maho anyway because of the proximity to airport (watching planes take off and land. The staff was friendly and accommodating. At check in you are greeted with champagne cocktail and cool cloths. We jokingly said we...

Visited on a business trip. Hotel is excellent for families and couples. It can improve options for business, as a business center with printer option. Noisy during the day because of the airport, but after 8pm there is no aircraft activity until 7am. Nearby business may be a little noisy, specially in lower floors, but inside rooms you don't get...

Nice hotel, very clean, close to the beach, close to the airport. Watching airplanes land and take off directly over the beach was very entertaining for everyone. The pool was beautiful, and the beach, though small, was very nice, very clean as well. We also visited Mullet beach and Orient beach. Very clean and very nice. The food and drinks...

I visited friends staying at Sonesta, Maho on a day pass. I found the general atmosphere pleasant but the amenities could have been better. Also it took an hour to be seated for a dinner reservation booked two days in advance. The landscaping and pool were lovely and I very much enjoyed the piano lounge. They music was beautifully played...

The Sonesta Maho Beach has many great points: location, beautiful beach, common areas and restaurants with neighbor hotel.... but hotel rooms need an uplift. It is a good hotel if you don't care about noise. The rooms facing the street have the airport noise (not so bad) and a casino that have loud music until 2am, everyday, You ask to...

Beach is too rough. Struggled to make dinner reservations. Help is very polite, but ineffective. Information must be aggressively pursued, it is not readily offered. Swimming pool is unheated. Enjoyed watching planes takeoff and land. Side trips to other locations on the island wee thoroughly enjoyed.
