    Book it! Don't even think about it...this was hands down the most wonderful and romantic couples resort I have ever been too (and this is with a pandemic...can't even imagine what it will be like post-pandemic...spectacular I am sure!) Let me start by saying thank you to everyone at Azul for their 5 star service and attentiveness. As if the sheer beauty of the restaurant was not enough, Kerie, Lorna, Evangeline and Tiffany made each meal an exceptional experience! Thank you so much for taking the time to greet us with smiles, friendly acknowledgements about our stay, suggestions on things to do and see on the island and my gosh, for remembering all the drinks and things we preferred when we came in. I have NO IDEA how you remembered all of those little details but it's in the details that really made my husband and I feel a little bit of heaven on earth. Thank you so much! The food was amazing and we loved that even though this was the only restaurant opened on the resort during the pandemic that the menu's changed everyday....to be honest, I don't think I would have dined at the other restaurants anyway as the staff, the food, the drinks and the ambiance were unparalleled. Camille and Gionvanni, thank you so much for your delicious drinkable creations at the pool...again, the attentiveness to our preferences and your smiles each day were so very much appreciated! The view was amazing and don't be discouraged if you think the airport is too close...the resort is just close enough to make the few flights that come in and out a rariety worth watching and they are not too loud. Actually even if you could on the beach where the jets fly right over your head, it's not even that loud....definitely do that...with drink in hand! So much fun! To the rest of the resort staff, thank you for always taking the time to say hello, to smile with your eyes as we know it's hard to show a smile through the mask and for being willing to work so hard for your guests during such a stressful time. Hands down we will be back again! To the travelors, just a couple of notes...make sure you have a PCR test done and your EHSA form filled out and in hand or you won't get on the island or even on your plane. The staff at the hotel is very mindful of guest safety yet it's not at all restrictive. Unless you cannot maintain social distancing, which is nearly impossible to do in such an expansive resort, you don't have to wear a mask but the staff always has one on. The cleaning practices are unprecedented and you can tell...you will feel 100% safe on your holiday. If you want a relaxed island experience, definitely book the swim out suites...you get your own private pool that is perfect for sipping cappucino or champagne at. Its very quiet there right now with the pandemic so bring some good books to read at the pool or on one of their hammocks. Both pools have bed like lounging that is so comfortable! Oh and definiteyl due the couples massage outside along the oceanside cliff...I was so relaxed that I couldn't even remember to write down our therapists names but mine lulled me into a blissful half sleep and my husband whose shoulders and back were tight from jet skiing wanted deep tissue massage...we both got exactly what we wanted...it was so serene and much needed! All in all, you will not regret going to this resort...if I could give them 10 starts I would!!

    This was our 4th trip to the island and 2nd time staying here. It is an absolute gem. The setting is perfect and the beach here in Maho is my favorite on the island. It never gets old. The staff is impeccable. They pay close attention to details. Yaddick (I’m sorry if I spelled that wrong) and Sundrine were AMAZING host during our stay and made sure we had everything we needed. Anthony at Azul was also incredible and top notch at his job but honestly every single staff member was so kind and attentive. They had so many safety measures in place to make sure their guest were safe and in a clean environment. Everyone always cleaning and sanitizing. The whole resort made our stay magical from start to finish. Go, visit soon and help get this sweet Island back into life. They are doing things right. You will not regret your choice to stay here. Perfection!

    Wedding venue is unmatched

    What a beautiful resort. Amazingly friendly staff, wonderful food and service, and the most beautiful wedding experience overlooking the ocean. I could not have asked for a better time. Thank you Sonesta staff! I cannot wait to return to Sint Maarten to visit the Sonesta again in the future!

    While the typical resort activites and restaurants were limited during this repeat stay to the Maho Beach location due to Covid-19, the staff was outstandly attentive, the facilities were spotless and the guest experience was outstanding. I cannot wail to return again.

    We spent a week at Sonesta Ocean Point and enjoyed every minute. We had a Junior Suite which was roomy and well appointed. The staff was attentive without being intrusive which is a quality I very much appreciate. I want to give a shout out to Sashana in the Azul Restaurant, who made our dining experience there especially pleasant.
