Overview

All-suite, all-inclusive property with superb customer service
Ongoing construction noise can be disruptive to adults seeking peace and quiet

An adults-only, all-inclusive luxury hotel on the esatern shores of St. Maarten, the Sonesta Ocean Point Resort caters to vacationing couples and friends. Each of the all-suite property's 130 accommodations features a neutral color palette, a minifridge, Italian Modena porcelain floors and a Greek marble bathroom, a private balcony with ocean views, 400-thread-count linens, free Wi-Fi access and a flat-screen TV with satellite channels. Plus, electronic wristband room keys make getting in and out of your room easy, as you won't have to remember to bring a key with you. Outside the suites, you'll find three pools, four bars and three restaurants that feature Caribbean- and Mediterranean-inspired dishes on their menus. Additional dining venues at the nearby Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino & Spa are free to enjoy starting in February 2019. Overall, recent visitors heaped praise on the resort's friendly employees and clean accommodations. However, many warned that several areas of the property are still undergoing renovations to repair damage from Hurricane Irma, meaning you may hear construction noise and encounter missing or malfunctioning suite amenities during your stay. But, members of the Sonesta Travel Pass rewards program can pay for suites with accrued points.

Ocean Point bills its all-inclusive as "limitless," which means your rate comes with all meals and snacks, unlimited international and domestic booze and soft drinks in resort bars, and access to scheduled activities. What limits your "limitless" is your room category; those in higher categories get spirits and beer in their minibar (refreshed daily) as well as daily butler service and other fine-print pluses.
