This was the worst place we've ever stayed at. We had no water in our toilet or shower for 1.5 days. We waited 2 hours for dinner one night after ordering and finally left without eating. They ran out of white rum. Come on. Really. We are in the Caribbean. The lobby was dirty and the furniture was stained and dirty. Worst experience we've had.

Do not bother with Sonesta Maho

Unless of course you like terrible service, a very unfriendly staff, being patronized and lied to, eating low quality food laden with salt and grease, and a hotel who shuts off the water supply two days in a row. After two days, we left, sacrificing our fee paid for the remaining four days (because they refused to return our money) and moved to the Westin at Dawn Beach. Two other parties did the same thing that day. That saved what had to that point been a complete flop of a vacation. The Westin is a fabulous resort. The complete antithesis of the Sonesta Maho.

We thought we were going to stay at a resort that was pretty good, were we ever surprised. This resort was fantastic!!! There was nothing we did not like at this resort. The restaurants, beach, pool, bars and evening entertainment were all exceptional. The restaurants were great, and it didn't matter which restaurant we went to. What we didn't expect was the Italian restaurant (managed by Martin) which could easily have been a 5 star restaurant in any city. Every night the menu changed but the service remained the same, excellent! That is not to say the other restaurants were any less fantastic. No matter were we went to eat or drink or do anything else at this resort the service was second to none. It started off with the check in people and never stopped. We will without a doubt come back to Sonesto Maho Beach Resort. We have nothing but fantastic memories of our time there. I can't say enough great things about this place. Anyone thinking about a resort to go to should keep this place at the top of their list.

Hotel nice - location not so much to my liking

The hotel is too close to the airport for my liking. If I open my dor to the balcony all smelled was jet exhaust and hear the jets landing and taking off. The hotel also had a movie projector right under my window and was very loud in my room. It drowned out my TV and I could not go to sleep. I caught the norovirus the second day in the hotel - the staff did not tell me about this at check in and I was sick for half my trip. I actually lost weight at an all inclusive. There were not many choices for beer at the hotel and a lot of the times they were out of stock on liquors and items on the menu. I love the island but would rather go some where more quiet to relax.

They upgraded us to a room that had a view of a alley and told us this was better the superior rooms. Since we did not see the rooms we have to take their word for it.

The service at check in was the worst. No Bell Man, front desk did not offer assistance with baggage, no one to greet us or provide orientation. The room while it was very big and clean did not provied the view described. The next day they did upgrade to a much nicer room than expected. The food, while good was repetitive. Sometimes all 4 restaurants had one or more of the same selections. They also changed their hours of opetation during our stay which added to the confusion. The overall cleanliness of the resort was excellent and better than most that we have visited. The pools were hardly used, which provided a lot of room and comfort for us. The casino only had entertainment on Friday and Saturday night. Too bad we did not have an orientation and were aware of such. On some evenings only an outdoor movies was available. Entertainment that was available started late and ended early. Would strongly recommend renting the gazebo for one evening if you have a special occasion. The service and food are well worth the extra price. As is with all resorts, a good hotel staff can make or break a vacation. This one was excellent. The beach is difficult to get to and tough for an inexperianced swimmer. I would rate this a 3.5 on a scale of 1 - 5 with 5 being the highest.

We went to celebrate a friend's 40th Birthday and had an awesome time. Almost a year later and I still remember how nice the staff was to us. On the birthday Anna made sure that there was a very nice surprise left for the birthday girl in her room. The property was clean, the food was good and the staff was very accommodating. Thanks for a memorable trip!!

Great
