I like to say I was also a little worried about going with reading some of the not so good reviews, still glad we went in the end. The rooms were very comfortable, never had any problems with water pressure and always had plenty of towels in the room. Jason in the towel hut was always very friendly and had a smile for you every day. Food was really good, never had a meal we did not find something we enjoyed. Also a shout out the Penka in the buffet she made the best omelettes and let my husband have some of her pre-cut vegetable for his morning sandwich. I think our favourite was The Point, plenty of food for the meal and good wine. The Palms for lunch had the best california burger was amazing as well the cobb salad and crispy fries, we were served by Diana a few times and she was very funny. Lionel from the front desk was always helpful if you had a question, as well as Edward from the Lobby bar. We enjoyed being able to walk outside the resort in Maho village in the evening and felt safe out and about. I only have a few little complaints but they are our own personal preferences and some you cannot do anything about. We like a long beach walk and that is not possible there unless you go off property, and we prefer a little quieter atmosphere in general and it was very party oriented around the pool.

Hotel's Favorite
My wife and I returned from the Sonesta Maho this past week (our 2nd time here and 3rd time on the island) since hurricane Irma hit in 2017, and what a beautiful restoration! While some renovations are still being done, mostly everything else has been done. The rooms are beautiful, and our bed was totally comfy. The best improvement was made to their balconies, as they now have glass walls which permit you to see everything when seated outside. The food has improved significantly since their reopening, not only in choice but in taste and presentation. One big improvement is the addition of The Point restaurant, where you can dine on white table clothed tables and a great menu choice. Also, The Palms restaurant now has on certain evenings the option of “lava rock” dining, whereby you cook them on your own lava rock that is heated to 440 degrees! Since the hotel is not yet 100% fully opened and functional, you may run into some occasional minor technicalities (i.e., elevator delays, shortage of serving staff, etc.). Special mention to the following wonderful staff: Jenel and Anna at the front desk; Pauline and Anthony (restaurants’ manager and supervisor respectively); Keric at the Point bar; Gail, our server at The Point restaurant: and finally; Rene, our server at Ocean Terrace. They all provided us with exceptional service! Overall, we had a excellent holiday and you will not be disappointed staying here, so don't hesitate! Thank you Sonesta Maho!!

Dear ARCNLC Wow! What a glowing and thoughtful review and rating! Thank you for your continued support, especially in our recovery. We are so delighted to know that you found our resort Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino & Spa to be more beautiful than ever. We are aware and grateful that none of this would have been made possible without the continued patience and support from our guests, and while we recognize that our guests have many resort options to choose from in the Caribbean, especially on islands recovering, it is with tremendous appreciation and gratitude to those who have decided to spend their valued time with us in St. Maarten. We appreciate the recognition of our hardworking staff, and will share the special mentions and sentiments to our teams. Thank you for noticing the big improvements - The Point restaurant and The Palms restaurant with our Lava Rock dining! We are so proud of our product and services and the people behind it, and beyond thrilled to know that you had an excellent holiday! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Kind regards, Nadeige Management Representative, Sonesta Resorts Sint Maarten

Maho Beach was seriously damaged by hurricane Irma in September 2017, so it was good to see it reopened for the 2019 winter season. Well, sort of reopened. Parts of hotel were still under construction/renovation with three working elevators having considerable difficulty handling both guests and construction crew. The resort is all inclusive (somewhat interesting concept for an island known from its culinary establishments) but good luck trying to get a reservation to the two restaurants dubbed elegant dining. The smoke alarm kept going off in our room and after a number of complaints the front desk sent Chinese labourers with limited English knowledge who just proceeded to disconnect it (really, that would be illegal back home). We sincerely hope they work out the bugs eventually, the island needs tourism to get back on its feet.

I've been reading the reviews for months and was a little apprehensive, mostly about the service and the lack of tasty food. I did not need to worry. The majority of the food was good and the staff was amazing. They truly went out of their way to make sure you were happy. Room We booked a pool/ ocean view room. We ended up on the 5th floor, had a great view of the pool & grounds. King size bed was super comfy, plenty of closet space ( more hangers would have been nice tho), Safe worked well ( minor issue when I "forgot" the combo, security was up in less than 10 min to reset it for us). We loved the shower with the privacy glass. Mini Bar was well stocked and the attendant refilled the fridge daily with our preferences. They decorated our room with balloons, a card, champagne & bon bons as it was my boyfriend 's birthday, such a nice touch. Food Buffet, seemed a little small but it was always well stocked and had plenty of choices. Breakfast was my favorite with cooked to order eggs & omelets. Pizza spot, right next to the buffet, had slices of pizza available most of the day. Jings / Asian / booked thru kiosk Probably my least favorite, not bad just not great. Palms lava rock / booked thru kiosk This was amazing, you cook your own food on a hot stone. They bring you chicken, steak, fish, sausage, pork tenderloins & mini burgers. You also get starters, fries & a baked potato. Palms / lunch We liked this as a better option for lunch than the buffet. Variety of options cooked to order. Grab & go There were always plenty of sandwiches & they were pretty tasty. A nice snack especially if you have a later dinner. Pool It was pretty nice, swim up bartenders were amazing ! Beach There are 2 levels, upper with nicer chairs & a walk to the beach or lower with less nice chairs & vendors but the ocean right in front of you. There were always plenty of chairs in the upper area. I'd like to shout out to both Jonel & Lionel at the front desk, they both went out of their way to make our stay better.

We had an amazing experience at Sonesta MAHO Resort at St.Maarten! Not only it’s a prime location - Resort located right on the famous for plain watching MAHO beach, it is an absolutely new, freshly renovated hotel with the fantastic customer service. Very kids friendly - even though our son is only 1.5 year old, he found lots of activities at the Kids club. Extremely friendly stuff - from the Reception Manager Kevin who went above and beyond to accomplish even smallest request of guests to the Spa and Fitness centre manager Jardin, to the bell boys and waitresses. Great entertainment programs - we really enjoyed live music on the beach and our son enjoyed dancing in hands of professional dancers. Every Tuesday evening Sonesta MAHO has a romantic dinner on the beach under the stars with the live jazz as well! Good variety of restaurants on the resort , even though because our son is too small we were going mainly to buffet -to get him his favorite french fries. and pancakes Overall , staying at Sonesta MAHO Resort casino abs spa was the best experience we had for last few years, even though we travel a lot. We are already planning our next vacation at Sonesta MAHO for the beginning of next year!
