We stayed at Sonesta Great Bay and would recommend Great Bay Beach to those who are visiting the island via plane or cruise ship. There are many chair and umbrella vendors for you to rent from to enjoy your day in the sun or shade.

nice relaxing beach on a with a fine promenade, though the whole area caters to cruise day trippers, not hotel guests.

Travelled over from Maho and walked the beach - a little more commercialized than Maho Beach but was a lot of fun and so very nice to be able to have a delicious lunch at the Sonesta Great Bay before returning to Sonesta Maho.
