MY ADVENTURES

Sonesta Maho Beach St. MaartenSonesta Maho Beach St. MaartenThis all-inclusive, beachfront resort is located in the lively, shopping and nightlife district of Maho Village on the Dutch side of St. Maarten. Find that perfect spot in the sun or enjoy a variety of daily activities, nightly entertainment, including several restaurants, a nightclub and large casino across the street. Other amenities you can enjoy include a spa, large oasis pool, swim-up pool bar, a water playground and complimentary kids club.

While Delta Vacations rates the Maho a 4 star, I would rate it a 3½. The most important thing to note is that it does not sit directly on the beach or water. While it is connected to the Ocean Point Suites, the Maho sits behind a time share property. The Maho and Ocean Point are sister properties. Guests at Ocean Point have full access to the Maho, but Maho does not reciprocate.

I have had clients stay at the Maho in the past and did not care for it, so I wanted to see it. If you are interested in a good value, it is an excellent option. The rooms are small, but were recently renovated and very clean. The standard categories do not offer a stocked minfridge but Premium on up do. Partial Oceanview are available 3rd – 5th floors and Oceanviews 6th floor on up.

There is one pool on property and offers both a small water park area and swim up bar. The pool also featured entertainment at the pool whereas the Ocean Point does not. The pool was well maintained and there were plenty of chairs when we were there. It may be a tight squeeze in a normal busy season.

A buffet and two specialty restaurants are shared between the Maho and Sonesta. We dined at all three and the food was hit or miss. The buffet was great for both breakfast and lunch, not so great at dinner. We also dined at the Italian and Hot Stone option, once again, some liked it, and some did not.

The Maho offers a tiny casino on site, but a much larger one is located directly across the street. The Maho also offers children’s programming and a teen club.
