The location and hotel staff are wonderful at the Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort. Our particular room offered butler service (a perk that my husband and I had never experienced). We figured we'd go on our vacation and probably never take advantage of their services.....how wrong we were! They were so attentive and determined that this "milestone" birthday vacation was going to be over the top.The balance of what we needed and what they had to offer was perfect. We had a total of 4 different butlers throughout the week who knew our likes and preferences. Richard, Marcia, Jordaine and Gilberto gave us memories to last a lifetime. They were professional, but not in a stuffy way. The little surprises in our room at any given time were deeply appreciated-- from the drawn bubble bath to the towel sculptors on the bed each evening. On the actual day of my birthday, there were balloons at our breakfast table. A cabana was reserved for us at the pool and a special table was set up for a romantic, candlelit dinner right on the beach. I felt so undeserving of all this attention, but after all, it did take the sting out of turning 60!
So if anyone out there is looking for an beautiful location with sparkling teal water, great food and a wonderful staff, this may be the place. I know for a fact that you will receive the same treatment from the staff, even if you do not have the butler service, because we witnessed how they treated ALL the guests at the resort.

Great location in St. Maarten, and watching the planes take/off land right off the beach was a once in a lifetime experience!! All-inclusive: plentiful drinks, good quality food and lots of variety/choices for everyone in the family. The hotel staff went out of their way to be accommodating and were a lot of fun! In particular, Jessenia at the front desk and Sheryl at the Palms Grill Bar delivered exceptional service! With only a few upgrades (new liner on the pool & A/C in meeting areas), this would be a five star for us. We will definitely be returning!

Hotel is short drive from airport. Hotel is very nice, well maintained. We had a swim out room, highly recommend this. Food at buffets is limited, but very do-able. The other eateries, need reservations for dinner and were very good! Drinks at the bars were also good. The hotel is located next to a famous beach, known for airplane landings and takeoffs, so can be noisy. We are prior military and are used to that 'noise' and actually found it really neat to see the jets fly over so close. Would go back to this resort in a heartbeat!
