Resort Profile

The adults-only resort within the Sonesta Maho resort complex (guests have access to all amenities of the greater complex), the all-inclusive Sonesta Ocean Point Resort reopened at the end of 2018 after over a year of renovations after Hurricane Irma. Airplane noise can be an issue (the resort is almost directly on the edge of Princess Juliana International Airport’s runway, which attracts tourists to the area to watch the jets land), the food and service get mixed reviews, and the beach is on the small side; but the property boasts the island’s largest casino, an elevated pool deck with great ocean views, a good on-site nightclub, a sleek and very high quality fitness center, a second (manmade) beach area, modern rooms, a good spa with treatments such as the signature Lavendar and Vanilla Massage and the Guavaberry and Sugar Body Scrub, and five bars and two restaurants including the signature cliffside Azul Mediterranean restaurant (plus access to another five restaurants and five bars at the sister property next door, which is busier and kid-friendly). The Palms Grill next door allows guests to cook on personal lava stones at their tables. All rooms come with private balconies with ocean views, flat-screen TVs, Italian Modena porcelain floors, Greek marble bathrooms, stocked mini-fridges with premium liquor and beer, and custom design furnishings and artwork; some have butler service and a few have swim-out access. Activities include airplane spotting on Maho Beach, BBQ beach parties under the stars, golf at Mullet Bay Golf Course designed by Joseph Lee right next door, beach volleyball (on a good court), dance classes, aerobics and fitness classes, live entertainment, mini golf, sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, sunset dinner cruises, ATV tours, and day trips to the nearby islands of Anguilla, Saba, and St. Barts (don’t forget your passport!). Off-site shops, bars, and restaurants are within walking distance.

Departure COVID-19 antigen tests are available on-site at a cost of $65 USD per person. Test results are available within 24 hours.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
