Horrible!!!

What a dump!! Pool need a new liner because it's bubbling. Staff is completely rude! Everyone has an attitude when you ask for something as simple as a cup of coffee. It takes about 10 minutes to get a drink because there's one ONE BARTENDER! And Bartenders seem to fill up your drinks with tons of liquor so that they don't have to serve you a lot. During breakfast there's only one cook making omelettes so there's a long line! Seems like they do that purposely to discourage people on waiting in such a long line. This was a huge disappointment!

Great getaway

For the price per night I feel the hotel can use updating. The bathrooms are very outdated and the balcony needs to be painted over with better furniture. The beds are comfortable and the rooms have a very nice smell. The pool floor can be redone. The service was good from the waiters to bartenders. The food was amazing very tasty and the drinks well made with enough liquor. I would stay at this resort again. Great view of the planes flying in a definite plus.

It was an Excellent vacation

The hotel was beyond my expectation as soon as we came in we were greeted with a champagne or a fruit drink the ambience in the lobby looked a five star place.. The all inclusive option was great. Loved the food, people the staff was always friendly. The issue we had was the first night didn't get wash cloths or hand towels just the normal towels . The next we got all the towels that were missing then the other night they gave us the towels but left out the wash cloths but a call to the front desk fixed that. We happen to stumble on this benefit where we visited one the senesto hotel on great bay to do jet skiing so we're told we could go there if we wanted to do the jet skis. I think it is an adult hotel and we were an adult couple so this was perfect but since you have the all inclusive option you got the benefits of eating, drinking and using the facilities there at no extra cost you just could not sleep there which was fine so I found that impressive. I just wished someone educated us before with that feature. Overall loved the trip st marten is awesome place for our first time and the location of the hotel was great 5 mins from airport.

37th Anniversary Trip

The hotel was very nice, but somewhat noisy. We used the sister hotel downtown which was much calmer. The airport being so close is entertainiing, but it gets so busy.

Great Hotel!!

We have stayed at the Sonesta Maho three times and have loved it every time!! The bartender at the swim up bar is amazing. We didn't even finished the beers we had before she had another one waiting for us. Rooms are just okay but since you're in St. Martin, why would you spend all your time in the room anyway???

Good

Sonesta Majo was a pretty good experience. It was literally minutes from the airport which was a huge plus. The rooms were nice as were the grounds. Every night there was some sort of beach party, game or live performance. There are a couple things to be aware of. Firstly, if you are renting a car (highly recommended), please note there are additional charges to use the parking lot. All inclusive should mean all inclusive... Apparently it comes with an asterisk. Also, be aware that if you are put in a room facing the front/main road, be prepared to hear loud music/bass vibrating through the night. I arrived on a Saturday and did ask for a room change because of the noise. I was reassured that things would mellow down once the weekend was over... this was not completely true as its an active street with bars, a casino, restaurants etc. I was serenaded practically every nite by loud music and karaoke. If it matters to you, you may want to make sure youre not put in a room facing the front. Beyond this, I have few complaints. The view from the beach is great, and it's ideal for watching the planes land. I would recommend it to a friend. Just be aware of the issues mentioned.

Get away with our moms

Upon check in the staff was very friendly. Our rooms were ready and we got right in. Ourselves and another couple were travelling with our elderly mothers. Their room was handicap accessible, with a walk in shower, shower seat and grab bars in the shower and around the toilet. The pool was a great size, although pretty deep, and the beach was a beautiful clear blue and swimable for experienced swimmers. Planes regularly fly over and you can almost see the people in the plane. The food was very good. The buffet although small, offered a nice variety. The pizza they make is really yummy at the buffet. Drinks were plentiful and bartenders were very friendly. The pool bar gets crazy and can use some extra help. There are two other restaurants, the Palms Grill and a Sports bar restaurant. They had decent food and very friendly staff. We were there from Jan 30 to Feb 5. The sports bar had a super bowl party and it was a good time. We also used the spa and the massages were very relaxing. Te hotel has a casino in it and one directly across the street. Our room was on the back side of the hotel. A nightclub was right next to that side. Music played VERY loudly from 11PM to 1:30AM nightly making sleep difficult. We did a bus island tour that brought us to Marigot, Phillipsburg and Orient beach. It was a nice tour but instead of bringing us to the MAIN part of each of these places, the driver took us to the locally owned straw markets and restaurants. It seemed as if they pushed us to only go there and not explore the main shopping areas. Orient beach was FILLED with seaweed. We were brought to a very beat up portion of the beach. We did have a very good lunch at a beach restaurant there calll ORANGE FEVER. The owner was French and very friendly. One night we took a cab to a restaurant called the GREEN HOUSE. The lobster and drinks were FANTASTIC
