The Maho area is full of shops & restaurants that you can walk to from your hotel. Sonesta or Royal Islander would do fine I'd say.

I agree with Barbara. I've done this regularly. My husband plants his feet in the sand and won't leave until 4:30 pm. While I also, love the beach, sometimes I get antsy so I leave and go shopping either alone or with friends, then return to the beach later. I've gotten some wonderful jewelry this way! ;-) It works for me!

Have fun!
