Sonesta Ocean Point Resort

St Maarten, Caribbean

The hotel

Channelling its glorious island setting, the adults-only Sonesta Ocean Point Resort delivers St Maarten’s glamorous vibe, chic styling, and ocean views. One of the best places to bay-gaze is the aptly named ‘Edge Pool’, with its zero-entry cliffside beach adding to the decadent feel (although the other two pools are equally gorgeous swimming spots). A self-proclaimed ‘limitless all-inclusive’, with the option to upgrade to a Butler service suite, you can dine and drink at five bars and two restaurants – or pop over to the family-friendly sister hotel Sonesta Maho Beach Resort for five more restaurants and bars, along with Vegas-style shows, spa treatments, and casino flutters.

I felt so comfortable staying at this resort! Highly recommend staying here if you are nervous about starting travel back up but needing an escape! Rules were reasonable and still allowed you to enjoy your time and the weather. Masks worn in public area When talking with staff but can remove them when by the pool/bar/beach/dining. While all the staff followed safety and wore them 24/7. Beautiful and updated facility with the BEST!! Service I have ever received out of any all inclusive before. Also drinks were made VERY well not watered down like some other all inclusive’s and made strong which my boyfriend and I appreciated! Can not wait for our next stay here and recommending to anyone who is looking ! Read less

We stayed this weekend at the Sonesta hotel in Maho Beach and it was an amazing experience. I had been to the island before, at a different hotel, and I was greatly pleased since the minute I arrived here! We booked one of the Butler suites and got the most wonderful human beings in Thaimi and Ranjeet. The whole staff was very nice, attentive and made us feel at home! In Azul restaurant, specially Diana and Natalie. Thaimi and Ranjeet deserve a special mention because knowing my bf and I hadn’t seen each other in many months due to covid, the first help us arrange a private boat tour and has our room waiting for us with fresh fruit and a relaxing bubble bath, and our dear Ranjeet made sure to arrange for us a beautiful romantic dinner at our suite balcony, the absolute highlight of the trip! Great location, great property but what made it truly special to us was its people. THANKS! Read less

Despite travelling during active hurricane season and during the global COVID pandemic, our vacation to Sonesta Ocean Point Resort in Sint Maarten was truly amazing, from the warm welcome and friendly hospitality to the beautiful swim out pools minutes away from the beach! The staff at Sonesta Ocean Point Resort made the experience at this beautiful resort that much better. Cheryl greeted us each day with an excited “Hello Boys” and great conversation while making us the perfect drinks! Ayesha prepared amazing meals that are on par with the restaurants we visit in Seattle and Boston! Each of the restaurant staff, K. Ann, Diana, Sharon, Nicole, Alex, Shanique, Tiffany and Jameson, took the time to get to know us and ensure that our experience was perfect. We booked a swim out suite where we could enjoy our espresso sitting in the water from our patio, enjoy the amazing views of palm trees and the beach, quick access to the main pool and bar and a short walk to the beach (which felt like a private beach). We can’t express enough how amazing our experience was and can’t wait to be going back. Read less

We came to Sonesta for 5 days and our experience was absolutely excellent. Every single staff member upheld a 5 star level of service, accommodation, hospitality, and safety with regards to COVID-19 sanitization standards. We felt extremely safe, especially considering that the rooms were sanitized and sealed each day so that nobody else would touch the room besides the sanitization and cleaning staff. Our temperature was taken upon our welcome, and we were also encouraged to sanitize upon entry into meals and the lobby. Overall, the customer service completely blew us away. The welcome staff, including Kathryn, greeted us with drinks and a room upgrade, as well as individualized interest in our plans and trip, and Superman took our bags immediately and provided us with a good laugh. The front bar staff, especially Akeem, was so helpful in whipping us up special drinks whenever we wanted as we were going out or coming in. The restaurant staff, including Tiffany, Sharon, Lorna, Nicole, Yovany, Sashana, and Anthony went above and beyond. They set us up a semi private dinner with champagne and a special dessert for our special occasion, and for every single meal served us with smiles and individualized service. The food was excellent, and the menu at Azul Restaurant changed daily. The resort itself is stunning, overlooking a white sand beach, teal blue waters, and the infamous air landings of airplanes coming into the airport. We got a couples massage with two excellent massage therapists. The massage was excellent and overlooked the ocean at the resort’s private outdoor gazebo. We enjoyed the two pools open for everyone, as well as our own room private swim out pool. A truly unbelievable, safe, and enjoyable experience, especially during more stressful times. A much-needed getaway and a five-star experience. Read less
