First off, i would like to say, please don't believe all the negative reviews.
My husband and i went to Sonesta great bay june 6th-13th, and we absolutely loved it!!
It was such a lovely place. A smaller resort, but exactly what we like. The food was good, we especially loved the pizza. Our room was perfect. we had an ocean view. if you can, i would go with that.
The views are spectacular and breathtaking. The managers cocktail party was a nice touch, and we enjoyed that.
We did go to the Maho to visit. the resort is a little more modern, and much bigger, but we love the intimacy of the great bay. So we are happy we went with that.
Phillipsburg was about a 10-15 minute walk on the beach, and it was such a lovely day. Lots of shops, especially if you are into diamonds.
The staff was very friendly, always smiling and greeting us. Owen the bartender was great, and Denroy in entertainment always walked by and chatted with us.
All in all, we would most definitely go back, we had a wonderful time.
