If you’re planning a summer travel getaway hoping for a little sun and fun, the 

Sonesta Resorts St. Maarten have a little bit of something for everyone. The family-friendly Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino & Spa and its sister property, the adults-only five-star Sonesta Ocean Point Resort, are located within Maho Village, the ultimate vacation playground. Just steps from both properties, the village is teeming with restaurants, shops, and entertainment, including the exhilarating Casino Royale.

For families looking for a variety of fun, the Maho Beach Resort offers the largest all-inclusive family program on the island. While the adults try their hand at the slot machines or gaming tables, there’s no guilt in leaving the kiddos behind. The Kids Club, designed for children ages 3 to 12, offers non-stop organized activities including character experiences and movie nights. There’s even in-room late night babysitting available so parents can enjoy an evening out. For those 13 and over, the Teen Zone is the ultimate hangout area with a pool table, air hockey, foosball, PlayStation, Xbox and board games.

You can lounge by the pool with a cocktail and keep an eye on the littles as they play on the with animal-themed slides at the Aqua Park. Kids even have their own pool bar, Teeny Tiki, where they can grab a mocktail or treat. Whether you choose the beach or pool area, there’s non-stop family fun all day every day with trivia games, bocce and corn hole, bingo, pool parties, karaoke, and more.

There’s no shortage of dining options to please all palates with five restaurants with kids’ menus. Choose from Italian, Mexican, Asian, or Caribbean coastal cuisine. Adults will appreciate the resort’s off-site late night tavern after a night at the casino.

For adults more interested in a luxury Caribbean experience, Sonesta Ocean Point Resort is an adjacent property yet world’s away with award-winning pools and al-fresco dining. While the resort’s suites are beautifully appointed, you’ll want to spend most of your time in one of the resort’s award-winning pools, including Seascape, with in-water pool deck loungers. The resort’s signature Edge Pool, designed by world-renowned pool designer Joan Roca, features a zero-entry beach set on a cliff overlooking the azure blue Caribbean waters. Guests at Ocean Point can opt for dining at one of the resort’s exclusive oceanfront dining spots or enjoy full access to the facilities at Sonesta Maho Beach Resort. For the ultimate luxe getaway, opt for one of the resort’s swim-out pool suites and take it up a notch with butler service, available in the higher category suites. 

While the activities on property are endless, St. Maarten is the perfect location for a little island hopping to nearby Saba, St. Barts, Anguilla, and others. The concierge team can set up unique experiences to make your vacation memorable.
