Our whole family had a fantastic week

My fiancee and I just returned from our destination wedding at the Sonesta Maho Resort & Casino, and could not be happier! We went into the planning process with a lot of questions and were a bit nervous with not being able to see the venue beforehand, but Katlyn, Maressia and Mahadavi were great - they were incredibly helpful, right up until the end of the night.

The resort provided a wedding planner and photographer that we were very happy with, and our photos were handed to us on a USB before we even left the resort! The day was beautiful and our whole family had a fantastic week.

We're grateful that we had such a professional and knowledgeable team working with us, and certainly recommend the Sonesta Maho for any brides who are looking for a picturesque venue!

Our guests were in complete ‘awe’ with the venue

Where to begin – this wedding has been a dream come true for my wife and I. Our guests were in complete ‘awe’ with the venue which our ceremony happened at (on the beach overlooking the ocean). From start to finish everything ran smoothly and occurred just as planned.

Thank you so much to the wedding staff which included Katlyn, Annemiek and Mahadavi whom were not only very professional but most importantly very attentive and helpful. These ladies definitely took a ton of stress off our shoulders and helped made our wedding day a very memorable and special day.

We could not have been more fortunate to have chosen the Maho Beach Resort as our wedding venue. Without a doubt, we recommend choosing Sonesta as your venue for your wedding day!

A wedding that dreams are made from

We are writing this review to describe a wonderful experience and what ended up being a wedding that dreams are made from. We first want to start with our thoughts about the property. We used the ocean pointe gazebo, overlooking Maho bay and it was absolutely picture perfect.

You can just imagine the white chairs with our fuchsia sashes in front of the white gazebo, outlined by a clear blue sky and water so aqua blue it screams “The Caribbean”.

The staff was so pleasant and friendly. From the time our guests arrived on the bus they were greeted with a warm welcome. Akilah was there to ensure everyone found their way to the ceremony site and felt right at home. She did not stop there, as she stayed throughout the entire ceremony and made sure the music was on queue and the food and drink started right on time.

Katlyn, the wedding event manager for Sonesta, was extremely accommodating with every request we had. She was super patient from the planning process all the way through the day of the wedding. We are very thankful for her kindness and guidance throughout the planning of our destination wedding, which can be very stressful when you live so many hundreds of miles away.

Just knowing that we could count on her to return calls and emails, because she proved over and over how responsive she was. She also oversaw all the details on our big day to ensure it went perfect.

We would highly recommend Sonesta Maho Beach Resort for your wedding. It is absolutely beautiful, family friendly and exceeded our expectations. Sonesta is our recommendation for the friendly island of Saint Maarten’s go to destination wedding site.

Wedding at Maho St Maarten

We had an unforgettable time

We had an unforgettable time with the 83 people that joined us at the resort for our wedding. The wedding sales group, especially Katlyn and Akilah, did a wonderful job in making sure that I got everything I wanted. My guests were pleased with the food at the wedding - everyone said it was delicious. We did request no cumin - it seems they season everything with it. I have guests that are ready to go back - half of us stayed at Ocean Point and half stayed at Maho.

The fact that the hotel is renovating its spaces to make it more modern was a plus - the Royal Pavillion and terrace were updated recently made it very nice. You can get a lot with the marry me for free package. However, I had a lot of upgrades for my wedding which drove up the costs. Still, I could never have the wedding I did in NY for the price and quality.

We had our dream wedding

We had our dream wedding at the Sonesta - Maho Beach. The staff did an amazing job of making sure everything went as planned. They took great care of our guests and us during our stay. We would do it all over again if we could! Thank you, Sonesta!

Our destination wedding was absolutely perfect

Our wedding at Sonesta Maho Beach was everything we hoped for and more. We were so pleased with everything Sonesta had to offer from the food options to ceremony locations. Working with the staff at Sonesta was painless.

As a typical bride I was concerned with all the details that go into a wedding; especially with 80 friends and family coming with us. With the help of Katlyn and the staff at Sonesta Maho, everything went smoothly. Our destination wedding was absolutely perfect.

The best part is, I never felt stressed about planning my wedding. The entire experience was amazing. Our guests had such a fantastic time that many of them are already planning another trip to Sonesta Maho.

This was the trip of a lifetime. We will never forget our magical day or the amazing week spent at the resort! Thank you so much for making it incredible!

We could not have asked for a better team

Huge thank you to the staff at the Sonesta Maho for making our wedding such an incredible, memorable and special time!

We could not have asked for a better team to help us plan and deliver on the perfect wedding experience for both us and our 70+ guests!

Katlyn and her team made us feel like guests of honor on the property the entire time we were there.

The views from the gazebo and point promenade are truly some of the most beautiful in the Caribbean – an amazing backdrop for our wedding. Most importantly, all of our guests had fun and loved the resort.

We cannot recommend Katlyn and her team at the Sonesta highly enough to help anyone plan the perfect wedding. We’re already planning our next trip!

Thanks again to everyone who made our wedding experience truly amazing!

The location of the resort is perfect

We would like to thank the Sonesta Maho resort and our wedding coordinator at the resort (Katlyn Jarvis), for hosting us on our special day.

The gazebo was a great location for the wedding. The breeze kept everyone cool during the ceremony. The venue was perfect and had a great A/C which was very important.

The food and drink service was spot on and everyone enjoyed the whole atmosphere. I would recommend the Sonesta Maho to anyone looking to get married in beautiful Saint Martin.

The location of the resort is perfect. It is close to the casino, Sunset beach, Mullet bay beach, local shops, Mullet Bay golf course, and plenty of restaurants. It is safe and easy get around.

A lot of our guest plan on going back which tells you how amazing their experience was. Thanks again for all your hospitality. We will see you again!

Everyone at Sonesta Maho Beach and Ocean Point went out of their way to make our wedding more than we expected and completely perfect!

From the ease of planning via email and phone calls, to the beautiful rooms and property, to the hospitality of the staff, and finally the perfection of our special day, we wouldn't have changed a thing and would recommend Sonesta to anyone looking for an amazing destination wedding!

Thank you, thank you, thank you

I just wanted to reach out to say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!
You & your teams are absolutely fantastic!

You were so easy to work with, & made planning our wedding so much less stressful. I can't imagine how we would've been able to accomplish everything without you.

Each & every one of you were so wonderful, and you made our wedding a day (week!) to remember for us & our guests.

I hope that we can catch up when Thom & I are back on the island! Thanks again! xoxo

We can't thank you enough

Thank you, thank you and thank you again! We are still basking on the special way that you executed our stay, my birthday and our wedding while at the Sonesta Maho.

Thank you for providing us and even considering us for the Butler service. We are grateful to Hakim, Taro, Gaston, Stacey-Ann, Martico and Richard for their superb service.

Certainly Sonesta should consider to open this service to any customer that requests it, regardless to which property they elect to stay at; it was truly a BLESSING!!!

Our guests were pleased with not only the events and the fellowship, but also the service that we received throughout.

We are all still talking about the wonderful time that we had and the overall experience.

Thank you for the helping to make the birthday celebration, Orange & Black Meet and Greet, equally relevant and special. You surprised me with the cake and cupcakes, (I just wished that I could have eaten them all) <chuckle>.

This has been a very memorable experience for us and we can’t thank you enough. May God ever bless you and the staff at the Sonesta for making our getting married event and my turning 50 experience one for the record books…we will never forget it or you! 

With sincere thanks and appreciation.
