The property is clean , staff around the property are very nice but the food is very basic. You only have one place to eat on the resort. Other inclusive resorts have at least 3 other restaurants to pick from. The local food and restaurant are way better. Then we booked a double bed and we got a king size bed instead. Next time I come I will book an Airbnb and eat out. Liquor is not top shelf.

Sonesta is a good place to stay. The beach is beautiful and clean but the chairs are not exactly on the beach. The food is good- one night we had the most amazing steak at one of the restaurants! The service could be so much better. It seems it is very hit or miss with the employees. Some are super helpful and welcoming while others are rude. When we checked in no one explained anything they just gave me an envelope and it wasn't until I asked about my room number that they said the room wasn't ready. DO NOT pay for island view, it is the same as the other rooms! Giovanni the manager was very helpful and kind. He did everything to make our stay more pleasant. A lot of the females in the front seemed annoyed when questions were asked and they did not explain anything. Janel helped me check out and was super nice and pleasant, I wish I would have met her before. The hotel is very clean- which was very important to us during covid! The rooms were nice and they give 4 bottles of liquor all brand new which I've never seen before. Jakailah worked in the gift shop alone with a whole line of people- I want to give her a shout out for doing the best she could! Every time someone would purchase something with resort credit she would have to call the front and get it approved. They need a better system. Overall Sonesta has its good and bad. It's a shame some employees couldn't be bothered to be a little more accommodating because then it would be a 5 star hotel!

Love the hotel and the people were wonderful what pissed me off is I wanted a king bed instead Expedia put me for a double bed which I hated. If I'm going to pay money for a trip I want to get everything I wanted and they couldn't change it because everything else was taken even though I had a choice of king and double and I asked for the king and didn't get it.
