A stay at Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino is a ticket to easy street. Limitless eats and drinks, including cocktails at the swim-up pool bar, plus a fully loaded activities list are included for all guests at the property, which stretches along a “splendid curve of Great Bay sand” (Frommer’s).
Scheduled daytime activities include beach volleyball and water aerobics, and nights bring live entertainment, outdoor films and parties. Try your luck at the casino with a complimentary $10 in slot play card, or grab a chair under a big beach umbrella and gaze at verdant mountains across the aquamarine bay. Wi-Fi and a mini-fridge stocked with soft drinks and bottled water (plus beer and spirits in the highest room categories) are also part of the package.
Guest rooms are recently updated and reflect a modern Caribbean style. On-site dining choices include: the Bay View, a buffet-style venue that also offers live cooking demos; Il Pescatore, a refined indoor spot that invites guests to a la carte seafood; the casual Pizzeria Capri; and the alfresco Water’s Edge, an Italian and Mediterranean restaurant whose location lives up to its name.
Take a 10-minute walk to Philipsburg -- St. Maarten’s capital – to stroll the boardwalk and Front Street, a mile-long stretch of shops, palm trees and cast-iron streetlights.
From the press:
“St. Maarten’s adults-only all-inclusive is well positioned … away from the docks that are usually crawling with cruise ships, but only a 10-minute walk from downtown Philipsburg” -- Fodor’s
