Fodor's Expert Review Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino

1 Rhine Rd., Maho Reef, n/a St. Maarten, St. Maarten

The island's largest hotel, which is on Maho Beach and typically caters to big groups, isn't luxurious or fancy, but it's a vibrant, attractive property. It's a family-friendly, full-service resort that offers everything right on the premises at reasonable rates, and it's located very close to the airport. Ask for a room on an upper floor facing the pool or beach. The property is a no-limit all-inclusive, with improved food. There is a good beach steps away, a big pool area, casino, gym, and spa. The complex has a theater, clubs, multiple restaurants, and many shops. Additional restaurants are just steps away. Be sure to check the website for frequent special offers.
