Hotel is dated, really dated, it was very quiet, the buffet selection was terrible, some lunch they had fish, some no, the hot buffet was cold, sometimes it had patatoes sometimes no, sometimes vegetables sometimes no, ice cream you had to ask for it and if they had one or two flavors available. The a la carte restaurants were only open on random days, the snack bar by the pool had almost no selection as well.

We traveled to St. Maarten in order to attend the medical school graduation ceremony, held at the Sonesta Maho Beach Hotel. (My wife's brother was one of the grads). Our initial plan was to stay there, but we booked at Great Bay instead as it was adults only and, from the photos. looked to have a better beach. It was a very good choice as it had everything we wanted (quiet, great beach, good food and great service) and was only a 20 minute taxi ride from the Maho. As some reviewers have poin... Read more

This was our first time in St Marteen. Like so many Caribbean islands it is not lush but rather more scrubby. It surprisingly was pretty hilly though and not flat like most. We wanted to do all inclusive since we didn't know the island and wanted all adult as well so that led us to Sonesta Great Bay. Overall it was not great but not horrible either. It was in bad shape in many areas with paint faded, concrete cracking, etc. It's an old property and it shows. They are currently in the process of ... Read more

Was previously here in 2014 and it was a much better visit. This visit I was very disappointed. Got in late the evening of 6/17 due to delayed flights.

Our stay at the Sonesta Great Bay was delightful. It is definitely a hotel that lives up to its "Certificate of Excellence" status. The hotel in itself is on the smaller side, but that was perfect for us as it was never overly crowded or loud, unlike the sister hotel down at the Maho beach. The rooms were spacious, and equipped with a flatscreen TV, decently comfortable beds, and a mini-fridge stocked with soft drinks, water, beer and complimentary rum and champagne (a first for any all-inclus...

We arrived with a large group of folks from Toronto, check in happened quickly with lots of champagne to help the process. The room was fine, clean with a nice ocean view.

My husband and stayed at the Sonesta a few years ago and absolutely loved it. It was clean, the beach was lovely (actually one of my favorite beaches of any resort I have stay prior) and the staff was great. The food was so good, the drinks were flowing all day and night and the pool was an ongoing party. Our room was really nice too. You definitely felt like you were on vacation the moment you walk into this resort.

My wife and I recently spent 7 days at the Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort and had a very relaxing and wonderful holiday. The hotel is old (built in 1967) but is aging gracefully. A traditionally styled hotel, all the facilities are centrally located making it very easy to get around without too much walking. We had a Grand Ocean view with a spectacular view of the harbour. Almost daily we watched cruise ships come and go. Beds were very comfortable and the A/C worked very well. Room was clean, ... Read more

Great flights with Sunwing. On time (actually 25 minutes early on return) and very smooth. We arrived on October 6 and check in was very smooth, welcomed with cool towel and champagne. They are currently upgrading rooms, we had a Serenity Ocean View Room (not yet upgraded) but it was excellent, clean, good bed, great view, no complaints. The resort is adults only and smaller but absolutely amazing, 3 pools, buffet restaurant was really good and you must go to the Italian and Pescatore, the f... Read more

This was one of our best vacations at an adult only hotel. The hotel is gorgeous, food is delicious and the staff are very polite and friendly. Restaurant- usually most all inclusive hotels you must reserve prior, however at this location you have the opportunity to eat with out reservations. Not to mention every night the menu changes at the two restaurants and one buffet. Beach is amazing, not rocky, several water sports available and most of all private Pools are ok but we loved the beach. E... Read more

I came here fir a weekend with my now fiancé planning on proposing. The staff went above and beyond to make it perfect for us. Arranged our own personal dinner table by ourselves inside due to weather and it was incredible!! Our own butler food was amazing. Perfect evening! The entire staff is incredibly friendly and more than willing to make our stay perfect. We're even thinking of coming back to have our wedding here! Great beach. Great location. Great staff. Great room. Couldn't be happier!

Just returned from Sonesta Great Bay last night and had to immediately report our amazing experience. From Niyoka and Innocent at check-in; Isamari, Kevin, and Kerbie at the Pool Bar and day entertainment; Wilda, Bryce, and Shanika from the restaurants, and Kerisha at check out who went above and beyond. And to the amazing housekeeping staff who visited us twice daily to ensure we had all the little extras we might need (like evening fresh towels and chocolates). All were amazing in their role....

I have had a career in the cruise line industry for close to 10 years. I am now in the airline industry, both holding senior management positions in entertainment, sales and VIP services. I travel as a profession, I am very observant and critical of my experiences. The Sonesta was TRULY INCREDIBLE. From the moment we were greated at arrival by Innocent with a cold drink in hand and the pan drum player it set the tone for the entire week. Every single staff member we met were genuinely pleasant, ... Read more

We actually stayed at the Sonesta Majo Beach Resort for a 2nd time, but re-visited Sonesta Great Bay and the staff at Great Bay is still much more pleasant and nicer and acommodating than the staff at Majo. The food also is better at Great Bay! The next trip to St Maarten, we will definitely be staying at Great Bay!!!!

It's a smaller resort and this grand old lady may be a tired old queen of a hotel but the staff are great and they keep you entertained, happy, drunk and satisfied. The food is outstanding not to mention the booze and beer and wine.

My husband and I booked 5 nights at this adult only all inclusive to celebrate our 15 year anniversary and it was just what we were hoping for. We had butler service with Marcia and Edrick and it was well worth it. They took excellent care of all our needs, we never worried about trying to find a spot on the beach or by the pools. Our suite on the 4th floor was immaculately kept and very private. We loved being within walking distance to Philipsburg and the next resort over from where some frie... Read more

this is a small resort, the rooms are dated and the facilities are limited, so if you are looking for a swanky vacation this is not for you. If you are looking for great food, awesome nightly entertainment ( and I am not referring to the usual unprofessional entertainment that we usually have to suffer through), I am talking different musicians playing on the pool deck each night. It was delightful. There is only one a la carte restaurant, but the food is very good. Book the grande ocean view ro... Read more

This resort is small and very dated. A few rooms were being renovated when we were there, but overall the entire facility needs a total makeover. It felt like we were in the 50's with the decor, carpets and furniture. It's not a place for you if you're expecting elegance and space. It's very affordable during off season but we would definitely not pay the rates during regular travel season: you'd be disappointed. There are 2 pools which are very small. There is limited space around both fo... Read more

Lovely clean resort. Friendly staff. I would go back in a heartbeat. The meals and snacks were out of this world. Spending a day shopping in Phillipsburg was fun. The beaches are beautiful. For any occasion the Sonesta Great Bay Resort & Casino is a great spot to go on a vacation. I plan on going back in 2018.

Ezmond is a great guy and helped us alot. The pool bar was fun but takes a while to get a drink, but Kevin makes a killer drink and was very friendly.. Shaniqa was a friendly server and talked alot. One thing I really liked was that you didn't have to make reservations in the restaurants. Also the Billy Bones tour was excellent.

I am currently staying at the Sonesta at Great Bay with my mother. I am 47 and she is 69. Some important things to consider before you book this resort. Stairs. If you are with someone older there will be some stair climbing involved..there are 2 elevators but you will be climbing stairs. The most IMPORTANT thing to consider is the slope of the beach. There is a substantial drop entering the ocean. Mix that with the small waves and it is difficult to get out of the water. I sat and watched all... Read more

We stayed Nov. 6th - 13th. Hotel is very dated which is why I wouldn't give it a 5 star. The staff and location of the resort however are amazing. From Jonathan (Rock Man) cooking up late night snacks, Kevin (Ice Man) and Adriano (Panda) at the pool bar and the beach, Charlene in the buffet, Venetta (I think that was her name) in housekeeping (4th floor) even the towel lady was very pleasant. The buffet was small and not too much selection. The restaurant off the lobby had great food and m... Read more

We arrived for a 2 week stay on Nov. 13 and on the 16th the a/c in the hotel rooms became inoperative. As of today (the 22nd) we are still suffering with no cooling in the rooms. All we get when we inquire is a "they are working on it" with no idea when anything will be rectified. The offer of a 3 night return stay is absolutely ridiculous....why would we spend the money on airfare, dog boarding etc for that short a stay??? Some honesty and accurate information would have gone a long way in c... Read more

No AC all week, not clean, rooms are musty. Staff are slow and not attentive. Altogether a poor hotel don't stay here. The beach is nice and the pool but that's where it ends. If you are looking for a luxury stay go elsewhere

We stayed at the Sonesta Great Bay for four days during Thanksgiving 2016. Upon arrival, we were told that the hotel had not had air conditioning for six days but that they were working on fixing it. There were no apologies made or offers given for a rebate or alternatives, although we later heard about people moving to other Sonesta properties. We figured we'd give it a try and asked to have a fan put in our room. It took two more requests to actually get the fan, but we were very grateful to h... Read more

The location of this resort is perfect - a nice walk into Phillipsburg and right on the ocean with great views to the cruise ships coming and going. The hotel is obviously in great need of updates but that doesn't change your ability to enjoy the sun and the surf. The buffet food was pretty good, the pizza delicious and the seafood restaurant excellent. We had no problem being served or receiving our meals as ordered. The buffet food was tasty, if you couldn't find something to eat I would t... Read more
