Sonesta Ocean Point All Inclusive Resort

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I do understand that the hotel just reopened and they indicated that there’s still some renovations going on, but I expected a lot more for a luxury hotel. Staff friendly and attentiveness wasn’t what I expected as well as their food menu is VERY limited. For the price paid I expected A LOT more out of this hotel.

Everything was excellent, variety of food could improve

The most unfriendly withers I've ever come across on vacation. Food a d drinks aweful

Beautiful Resort with Amazing Views, Fun,Friendly, Accommodating Exceptional Staff & A variety of tasty cuisine. My husband and I would definitely return. Thank you Sonesta Ocean Point!

If you go do not get butler service.... the service and Hospitality were seriously lacking totally not worth the extra money I paid.. just get a regular room not a butler serviced room then you will be better off also as far as food is concerned make sure you only eat at Azul restaurant.... the food at the other two locations that you can eat at is ordinary at best

The rooms are beautiful. The staff have great upbeat attitudes. They welcome you and actually remember you throughout your stay. Turn down service is a nice surprise when you get back to your room. Love the chocolates left on the pillows. I was on the second floor room 307. If your an av geek I suggest getting a higher room to see the airplane touch ground. Or if you don't care about airplanes the swim out rooms are great to cool off in. In between two great beaches Maho and Mullet bay. Can walk to either with ease. This was Superbowl weekend and the hotel set up a huge projection screen on the beach. There was easy access to food and drinks. Tons of lounge chairs. I don't think I can ever watch the Superbowl any other way. This will be the only hotel I stay when I visit St. Maarten.

We really enjoyed our extended long weekend stay at Sonesta Ocean Point. Having stayed at Sonesta Great Bay and briefly visited Sonesta Maho, I believe this is the gem of the three properties. The rooms and bathrooms are immaculate, housekeeping daily, decent toiletries, and furniture in good condition. The mini-bar is more than well-stocked with Nespresso machine, soft drinks, and top-shelf alcohol. We stayed on second floor and found that the airplanes are extremely loud (we figured this would be the case), but they do not leave too early nor land too late. The advertised "soundproof rooms" does not work for planes, but for other hotel noise, we found the soundproofing great. Luckily, as this is a 5* resort, I asked guest services for help; we received more pillows (the staff even asked if we wanted them more firm or soft), a fan that blocked out the plane noise, and to make smaller change for tips. The staff are all very friendly, accommodating, and make you feel welcome. We were a little frustrated with the choice of restaurants as Azul is absolutely lovely, but you most likely don't want every meal there for dress-code, heavy food reasons. The Palm Grill was always booked up- we really wish we had booked way ahead. The grounds are really well-kept, the pools are clean, bar/patio service is great. The atmosphere is more relaxed than Great Bay (GB has way more of a party vibe), but not stuffy. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Beautiful property. Looking for the island resort getaway this is it. Very relaxing. I love airplanes so this was a special treat to book this hotel. Watch airplanes and relax.May only Complaint is that I felt the bed was hard and uncomfortable along with the sheets.

The Sonesta Ocean Point was marvelous! The staff, especially at the Azul restaurant were super accommodating and friendly. I would highly recommend a swim-out suite, especially if you can get one on the swim-out pool side near the Azul. The views are completely unobstructed. This resort also has premium liquor included, which we did not know when booking! Amazing resort.

Rooms were fine but overall area was run down. Food was terrible and service was just ok.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We truly enjoyed that it was a high end all-inclusive meaning that we had top shelf liquor with all of the lobster and steak we could eat. Our favorite restaurant was Azul. We ate there quite often. We covered breakfast, lunch and dinner. The room was spacious and had a great shower. The bed was a bit uncomfortable. It was a little annoying that the bed wasn't connected to the headboard and it would roll. Some other downsides to the stay were that there was an abnormal amount of cats that wandered the property including inside the restaurants. The place also seems to still be under construction in certain areas and one of the elevators lacked air condition, which was very much so needed in the heat. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful, especially the dining staff, which one young lady went able and beyond to make our dinner romantic one night, but using her phone to play music for us.

The location is great. Very modern comfortable rooms, nice pools. Cleaning - twice per day.The Restaurant on the cliff is fantastic - table service by menu for breakfast, lunch , dinner. Unforgettable observation of landing plains, which are not flying at night or in the morning. I have habit to forget things - my favorite cap was returned me by beach worker next day , mask&snorkel was returned by a gardener, who even able to find/ follow me in the terrace restaurant in ten 10 min after i left my beach terrace chair. The beach is shared with Maxo hotel - not only adult , next to Ocean point - and is not big . I went to Mallet bay beach - 10 min walking distance - which is fantastic cove for safe long swims, snorkeling . Also for middle and beginner tennis players they can provide activity staff person to play with, what is very nice. Casino next to hotel .

The resort was quiet, clean and had great food. The Azul restaurant which requires reservations had great food and overlooked the water. The location is great as well. It's next to the airport which I would have thought of as a negative but it was really cool to watch the planes come in right over the beach. It's also right next to the casino and some really fun restaurants/bars! Highly recommend.

This was a very nice resort, the key wrist band was a great feature, wifi was adequate, service was above average, waiters & waitresses were very attentive, especially at Azul. The ladies at Azul provided by far the best service I've ever had at a resort restaurant. The buffet style food was delicious, breakfast, lunch & dinner varieties were amazing. One negative aspect was the room service, room service menu was subpar & room service employees were lacking in the hospitality dept. The airport was literally 2min from the resort which made the planes landing & taking an enjoyable attraction. All in all I give Sonesta a 4 out of 5.

Very nice andcomfortable. Loved the pool area, made up for lack of beach. Molton Brown products were a plus!

Hotel was great. They need to add entertainment at night and have the Palm restaurant open for dinner, they also need to up grade the buffet it was subpar, They should look at other hotels like the Rui for this.

This was our first time in St Maartin. The hotel facilities was very clean, modern and well kept. The staff was very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to improve your stay at the hotel. Adult only was a plus as the Maho hotel which was close by was crowded and noisy. guest from the ocean point are able to visit the restaurant on the maho property however the premium hotel and on the ocean point hotel is amazing.. the hotel is very private and romantic plus the private walk in pool attach to the rooms were amazing..overall it was amazing my only issues was that they need a night club for younger couples who dont gamble..
