There is more nightime action at the Maho location, I'd say go with that.

It is across from the runway - the noise is not an issue - not much air traffic after dark - I doubt you will notice it after the first day - if its a major concern to you then I would book the Great Bay location - no airport problems - cruise ships are at the other end of the bay so no problem with that.

But if beach is most important, go to Great Bay. No beach to speak of at Maho.

Yes, a short walk and you're in town on Front Street.

Thanks for the information. We haven't been to St. Martin but looking for a place for me to snorkle and just relax on the beach while my wife wants closeness to shopping. Would you choose Sonesta or Little Divi?
