Majority of staff were very friendly. Unlike other reviews we always had enough towels and our bar frig was restocked daily. I traveled with my adult daughter and we felt the food offered good selection and good, not great, quality. Never enough lounges around the pool, mainly due to so many being "reserved" by someone placing a towel on them...

Wonderful temps. In March whe the snow was pouring in the states. Great beach views, enjoyed the planes and did not find them to be a distraction as I feared. Buffet was adequate, Palms restaurant at dinner and lunch was excelllent. Enjoyed very good bar service outside the Point restaurant, and the views from there were the best. Above average...

1. FOOD and DRINKS PALMS GRILL serves strange substance they name burgers. Personally i don't know how it is possible to mess up a burger or hot dog but they certainly succeeded to do it. Omelette for breakfast was actually decent compare to the experience below. OCEAN TERRACE. Just don't go there. Just don't. Save yourself from stress, disappointment and...

The Sonesta Maho is a 5 minute beach walk to the runway of the Princess Juliana Airport If you like planes this is the place to stay. I easily spent days watching the planes come and go. The Sunset Bar and Grill just down the beach had a list of incoming planes each day. The beach is also lovely for...

The best part of the hotel is that it's on the famous Maho Beach where one can see airplanes landing and taking off. It is also all inclusive however in desperate need of renovation. Apparently some rooms have already been renovated. Cheap plastic ice bucket in room with cheap horrible liquor and a certain beer that has a reputation as...

We didn't realize how busy and noisy the airport would be. However the food was very good and had a wonderful view of the ocean from our room. The pool was nice but to cold. The beach was disappointing, but we went to a beach which was about a ten minute walk from the resort and it was nice. Drinks...

We first travelled to the Sonesta Maho for out anniversary (our children weren't with us) and loved it. On our 3rd visit we decided to bring our children, aged 11yrs and 13yrs at the time. They fell in love with St. Maarten and the Sonesta which we were thrilled about. My children are now 13yrs and 15yrs and they have...
