We are not picky people. We take the good with the bad in stride. There are great things about this place and not so great. I agree with several other reviews - staff are nice at times but need training desperately on customer service. Need training on team work. We encountered some very hard workers and then others standing around...

This is not a large resort. It is not like in Cuba, or Dom Rep, where you have these huge resorts, several pools and lots and lots of people... This is almost like a private resort, good for relaxing... 8 floors, about 40 rooms per floor. There is one very nice pool, a small beach area on a terrasse, 1...

The resort is in an excellent location, and has such scenic spots over looking the ocean. The rooms were very outdated however, but it didn't bother us as we were never in the rooms. The staff were helpful and welcoming. The only complaint I have for our stay is that the bars close so early and therefore do not cater...

Feb.5 to Feb.12 First and foremost be advised that currently there is little to no beach at this resort, we were told it was due to the waves washing it in and out. If I had of read this before I booked I probably would not have booked here. Many other travelers to this resort were also confused as to...

This will be my 3rd visit to Sonesta Maho Beach this April! and I am looking forward to it very much so! The only thing that I wish the resort had was new lounge chairs for the beach. This resort is very welcoming and friendly there is much to see and due in St. Maarten and many beaches to visit

Airport only 5 mins away from resort. Rooms were adequate. Disappointed we didn't get king bed as requested. But weather, drinks and food made up for it. And then we befriended some of the staff who truly made our holiday better. Big thanks to Bettina and Marilyn at Palms Grill for looking after us and giving us much laughter and...
