    2 weeks of Bliss

    My partner and I just returned from 2 weeks at the Sonesta Maho Beach resort and Casino and we couldn’t have been happier to go anywhere else. As someone who has travelled a lot of the Caribbean, and surrounding area, this is my second time back here and it won’t be my last. The check-in was very efficient and our room was nice and clean, with all facilities working and we never had any issues there. The shower spills a bit but it has great pressure and temperature. The restaurants are all tasty with great service, just depends on what you feel like for dinner. Being there for two weeks there was only 2 nights that we left the resort for dinner. Would highly recommend Jings for the food and La Fontana for the dining experience. Now for the amazing staff at the resort. We both cannot say enough about them. By far one of the highlights of the trip was getting to chat and know some of these wonderful people. The team members we met were all fantastic. The village tavern bartender Muhandra was fun to hang out with during the football games, and great at his job. Beryl, Doreen and Marisole were all so welcoming and so helpful when we would dine there (or stay late having one too many drinks). Loved seeing all of them as we spent most nights there. Ebony on karaoke was a great host and fun to sing with. Jeneen at front desk was always very helpful and friendly. Eddy at the lobby bar made the evenings there so enjoyable with his sense of humour and smile. Dienandro (Double D) at the pool was our favourite, he was always willing to help and chat and get to know us. Mikel, Stephanie and Carlos were always quick to get us drinks with a smile on their face. Rose at the palms for lunch was friendly and accommodating. Sharon and Lorna were always checking up on us at the ocean Terrence, making sure our service and day were going alright. They always made sure everything was running smoothly and we really appreciated them. Johmeia, Dorian and the rest of the people who served us at ocean Terrence were all fantastic. Lastly, the island itself is a wonderful, safe place to vacation. As my partner and I are both small women this was such a great experience to be able to leave the resort with no fear or worry. The bus system is amazing. For $2pp you can travel anywhere from Phillipsburg to Margot and we spent many days just seeing all the beautiful things each town had to offer.

    Sonesta hotel food and rooms

    Rooms are super clean, but they use a lot of fabulous and ammonia outside of the corridor and when they clean the floor so you can smell the ammonia. If your nose is good, you wouldn’t have to tell them do not use ammonia in my room. I did and I didn’t smell it anymore For food you always gotta find a mahi-mahi available Food is really good. People are friendly, If you wanna eat in Fontana restaurant, you have to dress They will not let you in The hotel in the middle of everything you can go to cup, Koyie mullet sometimes you find some nude mullet or cup copcoy Oh, the bus only two dollars microbus and when you get out of the airport, just walk to the street outside and you’ll find us is not more than four dollars from the bus to the hotel. Great great great place.

    We were disappointed

    To make it brief, I will list our pros and cons. Pros: - Rooms were clean and good-sized - Restaurant servers were very helpful and friendly. - The pizza at the pizza shop was excellent. Cons: - Bed was very hard, but everyone. has different likes and dislikes. - The conditioner in the bathroom was empty and never replenished. despite several inquiries at lobby desk. - Our mini bar only contained regular Coke and Sprite. We asked for Diet Coke the first night and 4 more days until we finally received some at 9:30 pm on our 5th night. - Between 4 and 6 pm everyday when we were trying to shower for dinner, our shower would shut off after a minute of uncontrollable water. temperature and toilets could not flush. We were told that was a normal occurrence on the top floors. - We had to ask for toilet paper several times, our bathroom would have 1/2 a roll, and we were never. given another roll without calling. - The pool area near the waterslide smelled of sewage. - The food was sub-par and very often cold. While some of these things may seem like small inconveniences, we paid a lot of money for our stay and were very disappointed.

    Very good resort

    Such a great resort . Super clean, rooms are comfy and ok size . Our room was located facing the mullet bay and that was great no noise issue. Food was the best I’ve had in all inc and we travel very often . Beach was a little rough some days and not for small children but mullet bay is a short walk away and that one worked well for us. Would recommend!
